Having won this year’s Academy Award for Best Picture, it’s no surprise that they’ll try to capitalize on it in China. Ironically, most of us have already seen it.

In 1962, Tony “Lip” Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work when his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states.

Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America’s racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals.

However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America’s appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other’s talents and start to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.

This is a must-see, but not necessarily in the cinema.

It’s another phase for Marvel movies… and a prequel of sorts at that. Before we get Avengers 4: Endgame later this spring, we need to learn about Carol Danvers and Nick Fury’s backstory.

She apparently becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. And maybe some more glimpses of the quantum realm, too? We really don’t know!

Don’t kid yourselves, we’ll all be going to see this one at the first midnight showing.

漫画中的初代“惊奇女士”原名Carol Danvers,她曾经是一名美国空军情报局探员,暗恋惊奇先生。此后她得到了超能力,成为“惊奇女士”,在漫画中是非常典型的女性英雄人物。

During a game, he’s fired from the stadium and forced to train a basketball team called “Los Amigos” (The Friends) formed by the mentally handicapped players.

The trailer looks fun! I wonder if they win in the end?

Anyone else surprised to see this one on the list!? We got it! Too bad we’ve ALL seen it already… oh well.

If, by chance, you haven’t and you’re a huge Queen fan, this is a must-see. Rami Malek won Best Actor at the Oscars this year and the whole biopic is well-done if not factually correct. And expect parts of Freddie Mercury’s private life to be heavily censored.

The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.


弗雷迪·莫库里(拉米·马雷克 饰)曾是希思罗机场的一名普通搬运工,对音乐满腔热血的他,与布莱恩·梅(格威利姆·李 饰)、罗杰·泰勒(本·哈迪 饰)、约 翰·迪肯(约瑟夫·梅泽罗 饰)组成皇后乐队。
