There’s probably only one reason left in the world to want to see this movie, and that’s the main actor. Male and female alike can appreciate the aqueous physique of the Dothraki, I mean underwater god.

And the fact that China is getting this TWO weeks before the US release is telling. They know it’ll do better here than abroad.

You may have read this film title and thought to yourself, “No that can’t be. They don’t mean that.” But it’s true, they do.

Upon realizing the extent to which women are affected by their periods, a man (yes, a man) sets out to create a sanitary pad machine and to provide inexpensive sanitary pads to the women of rural India. And the feminists rejoiced!

Hopefully China’s recent ambition to show more and more Bollywood films doesn’t come back to bite them.

电影曾译名《护垫侠》,根据印度草根企业家Muruganantham真实事迹改编。因为卫生巾关税高昂,在2012年印度仍有80%以上的女性在生理期无法使用卫生用品,初中文化程度的主人公拉克希米(阿克谢·库玛尔 饰)为了妻子(拉迪卡·艾普特 饰)的健康,寻找低成本的卫生巾的生产方法,却被全村人视为变态、疯子;最后他远走大城市德里,遇到了生命中最重要的美女合伙人帕里(索娜姆·卡普尔 饰),最终发明了低成本卫生巾生产机器,并开放专利,为印度全国对于女性经期卫生观念带来变革,2018年7月印度取消卫生巾进口关税。

For those who don’t know, The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit.

Funny, heartwarming, and assumedly visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company.

With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Whoville when he runs out of food. Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter, and louder celebrations. What will he do when the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year!?

《圣诞怪杰》根据“苏斯博士”(Dr. Seuss)的著名畅销童书改编,故事主角是一个绿色的怪物格林奇(Grinch),他非常非常痛恨圣诞节,因为他是一个孤儿。为了不让人们过圣诞,他把所有圣诞礼物都偷走了。最后还是一个纯真的小女孩融化了他冷漠的心。

Note: this film is in Russian with Chinese subtitles

A grizzled special operations Major wakes up after a botched drug bust to find he is now inhabiting the body of a baby. But crimes still need to be solved, so he hitches up his diaper and gets back to work.

I wonder what went through the head of the producer when the director/writers pitched this movie to him? And then… hey, we should release this in China, too!

头发花白的特种作战少校赫洛莫在一次缉毒行动中负伤,在救治过程中,居然阴差阳错地与环境保护科警察奥列格新出生的婴儿实现了灵魂转移。案件迫在眉睫,新生儿幼小的身体里装着刑警少校的老灵魂,当蠢蛋老爹遭遇暴走婴儿,警匪对峙过程中上演了一幕幕啼笑皆非的破案囧事。
