If you’re one of the few who haven’t seen this yet (it’s been out for almost 2 years), then you should definitely pay the price of admission for a peek in the cinemas.

Fútbol legend, Pelé, and his meteoric rise from the slums of Sao Paolo, Brazil, to winning the World Cup at the young age of 17 are on full display in this film. Although you probably already know the story, watching it played out on the big screen is a real treat.

And we have Vincent “The Human Chameleon” D’Onofrio to enjoy, too!

本片讲述了球王贝利儿时从贫民窟擦鞋童,靠自己的努力克服重重阻碍,逆转绝境成为足球世界最强者的故事。影片揭秘了贝利成名前不为人知的经历,家境贫穷、旁人的冷眼、队友的排挤并没有阻碍贝利的成长,父母的教育一直影响着贝利,从被人贬低到万人瞩目,他一个人的逆袭,燃动了数十亿人的斗志。

Have you ever wondered why film piracy is so rampant in China? Here’s your second biggest reason: it often takes so long for good films to come on over!

If you haven’t already downloaded this remake, it’d be great to see in the cinema late at night with few others around. Especially if you’re a fan of Willis, Shue, and D’Onofrio.

Synopsis: Dr. Paul Kersey (Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence as it’s rushed into his ER – until his wife (Shue) and college-age daughter (Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home.

With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel… or a grim reaper.

Move over The Rock, this is classic Bruce Willis!

在枪案频发的芝加哥,保罗原本是一个温文儒雅仁心妙手的医生,拥有一个幸福美满的家庭。一场突如其来的厄运让他的妻女惨遭暴徒欺凌,女儿昏迷不醒,爱妻更因此丧失生命,与他天人永隔。然而,城市里连串的凶案让警方束手无策,种种原因使得保罗的案件无法结案,本应受到制裁的凶徒逍遥法外。

在崩溃和绝望中,保罗的人生价值观彻底改变。为了替家人复仇,保罗决定孤身寻凶,主动出击,单枪匹马在城市街头制裁暴力犯罪。警方和大众对这位伸张正义的神秘“帽兜男”众说纷纭,争论不休。在“守护天使”的外衣下,保罗最终迎来了和仇人的生死决战。

Another full-length animated feature from Japan sure to impress the most astute anime fans. But again, they’ve probably already seen it because it’s from LAST year. And there’s already a live-action Hollywood remake in the works.

Years into the future and the human race has been defeated several times by the new ruling force of the planet: “kaijus”… The ruler of that force is Godzilla, the “King” of the Monsters.

Humanity is in such defeat, preparations to leave the planet have been made, and several people have been chosen to look at a new planet to see if it is inhabitable. Realizing it’s not, though, the human race resorts to Plan B: to defeat Godzilla and take back their planet.

You’d think that would’ve been Plan A.

二十世纪最后的夏天。那一天,人类终于知道自己并非地球这颗行星唯一的统治者。

巨型生物「怪兽」,以及驱逐怪兽的终极存在「哥斯拉」出现了。经历与怪兽之间长达半个世纪的战争,人类屡战屡败,最终计划逃出地球。2048年,经过中央政府管理的人工智能筛选,一部分人类乘坐跨恒星移民飞船「阿拉特拉姆」号踏上了前往11.9光年之外的「鲸鱼座τ星e」的旅程。然而,人类花费20年所抵达的星球与地球之间的环境差距远超预期,不适宜人类生存。

移民飞船上有一名青年——晴雄。4岁的时候,他亲眼目睹父母被哥斯拉杀害。20年来他始终想着回到地球消灭哥斯拉。移民的可能性已经灰飞烟灭,飞船内的生存环境也越发恶劣,以晴雄为中心的「重返地球派」成为主流,他们决定经过危险的长距离亚空间航行返回地球。

然而,地球经过2万年的演化已经形成了以哥斯拉为顶端的生态体系,完全成为了一个未知世界。

最终人类能否夺回地球?晴雄的命运又将如何?
