The Story of O
5 years ago via Flixster

I can't decide whether this is an interesting exploration of the themes of love and boundaries or whether it is just an excuse for lots of sexual shots and scenes. There is definitely a feeling that more is going on than is being portrayed, which is probably where the book outshines the movie. I may well read the book to see what was missing. Although quite tame in detail, it does seem to convey the sense of sexual control in O's life. Thought provoking.

The Forbidden Kingdom
9 years ago via Flixster

Enjoyable martial arts feast. Jackie Chan and Jet Li both surprised me in this. I'm not a big fan of the genre, but they impressed me with their acting. Jet Li was especially surprising. The fight scenes were good, as expected and the occasional funny line dropped in, helped it along nicely. Just could have done without the american teenager really, and a less predictable plodding plot
