Movies Review

(1) Men in Black 3 (3D)
Last Friday I went to the cinema to watch Men in Black 3. The ticket was free due to that a bank has offered free tickets to its corporate clients. It also provided free popcorns and a can of coke (so thoughtful).

It’s been a while since I stepped into a cinema and it’s the first time I got to watch a movie in 3D. (Yes, first time…). Hence, I was rather excited.

The movie is about Agent J (Will Smith), in order to save his partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and the earth, must travel back in time to 1969 to prevent an alien criminal from killing the young Agent K (Josh Brolin).

It’s very entertaining - the lines are funny; the aliens are ugly and there’s an unexpected scenerio at the end that may bring tears to your eyes.

As for the 3D effect, I saw the depth perception between the foreground and the background. However, I feel that this makes the background look somewhat unreal. And oh the 3D glasses, not too comfortable.

(2) Mirror Mirror (2012)

I watched Mirror Mirror on the internet (thank goodness I didn’t pay to watch in the cinema).

Mirror Mirror is an adaption of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It’s about an evil queen (Julia Roberts) who seized control of her husband’s kingdom right after his disappearance. The dwarfs taught Snow White (Lily Collins) to fight when she’s hiding in the forest. She ultimately saved the dwarfs and the prince (Armie Hammer). The poisoned apple was only offered to Snow White at her wedding to the prince by the queen who has lost her power. Oh, and the dwarfs wore stilts. Perhaps the director is trying to break away from the traditional story here.
At the end of the movie, Snow White performed a Bollywood song and dance. Seriously, a Bollywood dance for a Snow White movie? A check with the cast and crew list at the end explained it – an Indian director, Tarsem Singh. I wonder if the movie were directed by China’s Zhang Yimou, would he end it with a Chinese song and dance.

It's been ages since I stepped into a cinema. I usually watch those older shows on my iPad using PPS apps. Lots of good movies there. I even downloaded the 40 parts of Justice Pao. Only managed 10 parts. No time lah. Thks for the review.

Thanks for the encouragement! I'm really not that good at writing compared to you or Gintai and many others. I do read your blog (but seldom comment).
