🎥 Film culture around the world~

As predicted, the month of the Lunar New Year is a sad time for foreign movies in China. We only get 3, possibly 4. In the culture bureau’s effort to support Chinese culture, we get a LOT of fun local films instead. Even a new Peppa Pig cartoon.

Nothing compared to last month‘s 12 foreign movies. We don’t believe in balance here in this country.

There’s an ounce of good news, though, Captain Marvel secured a same day release with the US! That means we’ll get it in Mainland China on March 8. More about that next month.

Back to February: we get a Japanese romance flick and another anime, the new cyberpunk action film written and produced by none other than James Cameron (which is based on Japanese manga), and possibly a heavily Oscar-nominated Mexican drama.

Not this year, buddy.

Wow, a Japanese love story releasing on Valentine’s Day. All the guys out there breath a sigh of relief as they plan to just take their lover to the movies instead of an expensive romantic dinner. Good luck with that, gentlemen.

The plot: An assistant director and film fan gets his wish come true when his favorite heroine, a princess from an old film, magically appears in the real world.

Sounds kinda familiar, but the dreamers out there are sure to love it.

She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from the past.

But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita’s true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.

We might go see this one, just for Christoph Waltz and Mahershala Ali.

In a Lord of the Rings type world, all the people stop aging in their mid-teens and can live for hundreds of years. One resident, Maquia, feels lonely despite the peaceful and idyllic land she lives in.

But one day, another army invades their land, seeking the peoples’ blood for their immortality. Maquia manages to escape the destruction and chaos of war, but with no home or people, she becomes a wanderer in a dark forest.

Lo and behold, she comes across an infant mortal boy who has lost his parents, and becomes his guardian. The story follows the relationship that evolves between the two as he grows up while Maquia does not.

The animation alone makes this one worth it.

This is the film with all the buzz and the one that has won all the awards this season so far and has been nominated for 10 Oscars. It’s simply a must-see.

The premise is simply about a year in the life of a middle-class family’s maid in Mexico City in the early 1970s. But the key feature is the amazing director.

If it gets canceled, you can easily download it online.


突如其来的两个意外,同时砸中了女佣克里奥和雇主索菲亚,两人究竟该如何面对苦涩茫然的生活?四位孩子似乎是希望所在。 这是以导演阿方索·卡隆的儿时记忆铸成的影片,而卡隆其实就是片中某一位小孩。
