Fast & Furious 6
*Note: This is only the second Fast series that I've watched after Fast 5.
Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Sung Kang, Elsa Pataky, Gal Gadot, etc
Director: Justin Lin
Synopsis: The gang went on another mission chasing after some Russian gang (seriously? Can people stop making Russians the bad guys? LOL!) with damn hi-tech cars and engines, which include a bloody HUGE tank. Sadly someone died in the movie and I didn't agree with some part of the story but according to Deardo, that's because it has to go back to the original story, which I have no idea what is it all about. :p
The Thumb-Up(s): For a sequel, the movie has done extremely good because there are improvements. I mean, hey this is the 6th one, so you gotta give me something good or I'm not watching it anymore, right? So this time around the cars chasing has got tanks and an air plane, so it was a real good upgrade. It was also very entertaining and action packed, which is essential to a movie like this. Sung Kang and Gal Gadot's story line, to me personally was something different and I like the fact that they have more screen time.
The Thumb-Down(s): Er... The scene where Dominic flew over the other side of the road to save Letty, landed safely without any injury... Ngo jip sau ng tou lor (no way I'm accepting that)! So fake and ridiculous! And yea, some cheesy scenes too. And sorry, no good acting for you to watch as well. But well, that's expected.
I'm a fan of Elsa Pataky and Gal Gadot, hence if you have watched this movie, you will understand that I'm sad with the ending for both the characters they played.
Verdict: Better than Fast 5 and to Deardo, it's the best of all the Fast & Furious sequels. I would say it is still one of the 'must-watch' summer movies.
3.5 out of 5

Finding Mr. Right 北京遇上西雅图
Cast: 汤唯、吴秀波、金燕玲等
Synopsis: 身为小三的文佳佳被送到西雅图待产,从任性、霸道、无理取闹到慢慢学习珍惜和独立。也因为在西雅图遇上Frank而改变了她的人生。
The Thumb-Up(s): 不像一般温馨爱情喜剧,电影里的剧情从一开始就让人觉得很新鲜了。再看下去,原来除了爱情的部分,更感人的是看着主人翁佳佳的改变,还有她在待产中心里和其他妈妈的相处,为电影添加了不少温馨画面。我承认,这部电影让我有一股冲动要怀孕。哈哈,放心,冲动已经过去了!总之电影要带出的message也带得非常到位!
The Thumb-Down(s): 想了20秒,想不到耶!
Verdict: 电影的故事很写实,没有天马行空的浪漫爱情故事,却有凡人都可能遇上的生活故事。演员们都演得很赞,感人又好笑的剧情和对白让人看了又笑又哭!真的是佳作!:)
