New Year Movies

Apparently, nobody is interested in taking part in the contest I did in my last movie review post... Either nobody is interested with my treat, or nobody actually knows who my favourite Hollywood actors are! Sad...
Anywayz, here are the two movies I watched on the 30th and 31st of Dec, last year!
叶问 Ip Man
我很爱甄子丹,很多人都知道,他真的是标准的sexy old man!不过叶问这部电影我起初真的一点兴趣也没有,因为感觉很“历史”,会恨闷。结果就很多人都老跟我说超好看的,就赶快趁它还没下画前去看了。
因为叶问这电影里包含了的不止是武术,还有当时日军在中国的点滴,还有很多的历史的背景,让我很自然的联想到早前看过的近打。相交起来,真的差太远x100了!好,就算不比较,我也觉得这的确是一部非常值得一看的商业片。
故事编排很简单,一看就明白,更不会有一些莫名奇妙的鬼点子。虽然整部电影重点当然是要把叶问弄得很厉害,但却没有感觉太over,刚刚好!而且老实说,电影里那种看着叶问以武功来赢回中国人的面子的那些场面,感觉就很有feel!从来没有一部抗日电影让我那么感触的耶(我这样说会不会得罪人?)!动作方面,有洪金宝在,当然不会很差,而且我个人很喜欢,虽然Ducum看到了几个漏网镜头......而且整部电影拍起来那个颜色啊、画面啊都很漂亮,很有feel!我也看到了制作的用心,就是那个棉花厂就已经很“够力”了!啊~差点忘了提,前面部分的幽默感我也很喜欢哦!:p
甄子丹当然还是帅气十足啊!帅到个爆炸!最近很红的女主角熊黛林就没什么好讲的,在戏里头是个花瓶。我很喜欢的林家栋也演得很不错,啊哟,什么时候颁个奖给他啊???当然,很大的一个意外惊喜是池内博之!!!超级无敌帅的!!!不知道他是谁吗?哈哈,就是不告诉你,你去看了就知道啊!:p

Australia
You all know why I wanted to watch this movie so much. I missed every bit of Australia!!! It's like my second home!!! And I also love Nicole Kidman!
Unfortunately, I have to say Australia let me down... Not completely, but yea, disappointed.
Before watching it, I always thought it is a love story, and I was secretly worry about that because I'm not a big fan of love story. But then it turned out, the romance part isn't that much. It's a bit of history, and a bit of romance, which didn't really work so well because the focus is lost!
Honestly, with the title of the movie called 'Australia', why don't you just do a freaking good movie about Australia? Just as simple as that! Because I think I really love the part about the aboriginal people, its the best part of the whole movie! I cried when the Nuallah had to go do his 'walk-about'! If you haven't know more about the Australian aboriginal's people's suffers, I reckon you haven't watch Rabbit-Proof Fence. Trust me, you will love that movie!
Okay, Australia isn't all that bad. I think the story is okay, with the sometimes very 'kan cheong' parts, but it's definitely too long it became a bit boring. And you will love the lovely scenery of Darwin!!! So breath-taking!!!
