Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Killing Room

4 individuals sign up for a psychological research study only to discover that they are now subjects of a brutal, classified government program.

Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story

Bruce Lee has inspired many people. He set a mile stone in martial arts and filmmaking we see today. This film is not about how many bricks he breaks, but how far the gap he leaps over and breaks the barriers of culture. It reminds us that once upon a time there was a legned who was born to fight and shape the world.

Love Actually

Not bad at all! And funny at times. The gift-wrapping cracked me up. The confrontation with the best-friend's-wife was kinda of creepy though.


The tank drifting in the heart of St. Petersburg is an instant classic.

The Bourne Ultimatum

The overuse of shaky camera and choppy editing is not my thing.

Drag Me to Hell

I thought about Evil Dead II the whole time when watching this, not knowing they were both directed by the same guy named Sam Raimi (whom I knew the least because I'm not a big fan of the Spider-Man franchise) Nevertheless it was oddly good and I really liked EDII as well, they were both intentionally hilarious in the horror genre.

P.S. If you're going to see this movie, keep in mind that when weird things happen to some people, there're not always necessarily kama at work!

Eden Lake
Eden Lake(2008)

Eden Lake had it all: evil kids, wanker parents, nerdy indian, hoodies with doggies, hide and seek in trash bin, household break-in, barbeque, bondage, happy slapping, stepping on rusty nails, happy ending (well, that depends on what side you root)...

Black Hawk Down

BHD is more than just bieng a modern/urban version of Saving Private Ryan with a tip on making a good cup of coffee, to me it's also like a prelude of Alex Mahone, an ex-special-ops FBI agent on Prison Break! It's packed with great actions, supreme actings, realistic atmosphere and likeable characters. The game was awesome too!

The Midnight Meat Train

As a horror movie The Midnight Meat Train was pretty well made. It had enough suspense and gore to keep you from sleeping through the dark environment. Cinematography was top notch and Vinnie's acting was convincing. I particularily liked the way the ending was handled, a good reason why I prefer this one over Night Train any day.

The Day After Tomorrow

There are a lot of cool stuff and behind-scenes in the extra features that deserve an extra half star for the rating! Frankly, I was a little surprised to learn that the visual effect team was led by a woman...

The Mist
The Mist(2007)

Despite the ridiculous ending, this is one of my favorite Stephen King's movies. (Carrie, IT are also very good)


It's pretty much like one of those "sweded" movies you'd see on Youtube. It's is mediocre at best. Most of the time you are watching the protagonists running, making phone calls, talking stuff, and monsters are nowhere in sight. Avoid this if you can't stand shaky camera. The Host (made by Korean) would be a much better choice if you are into this genre.

I, Robot
I, Robot(2004)

So many cool stuff in the extra section!

Nick of Time
Nick of Time(1995)

The event took place in real time. You'd be amazed how a father was willing to do to save his love one in less than 90 minutes.

Pitch Black
Pitch Black(2000)

I always like movies about survival, and this one had Vin Diesel in it, so there's no way I'd miss it. The premises were pretty much like the TV series Lost, except it took place on a different planet (without a big ocean)

True Romance
True Romance(1993)

I believe this was the first Christian's film I've seen, and it was truely awesome to me!


I.D.C.W.P.A.S, I.M.O, T.I.P.C. I.S.B.T.


This movie is like a tribute to the stuntmen who risk their necks for bringing us the entertainment. When I read about the deadly accident during the shooting, I truely felt sorry for it. Nevertheless, it's a great movie.

Event Horizon

One of the best deep-space-thrillers since Alien. The atmosphere is absolutely intense and chilling, with the help of great actings. You'll find humors at times, mostly near the beginning. Special effects look really good by today's standard.

Expect the Unexpected (Fai seung dat yin)

This is the kind of movies that leave you compeletely speechless when the credits roll. Forget about trailers or reviews. If you come across a copy of this movie, fucking grab it without a second thought.

Gam chin dai gwok (I Corrupt All Cops)

This one proves that Wong Jing can't do serious films. It's poorly written with lack of direction. The fighting sequences are barely watchable. Everything just falls flat. You would feel less offensed of paying the corrupted cops than paying to see this cheesy piece of crap.

30 Days of Night

This one really lives up to the vampires vibe, and I loved it, despite the weak ending (and the final fight was way too dump!)

Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys)

You may be confused, just like James Cole, of the story and timeline when seeing this for the first time. You'll likely to clarify most of the things when seeing for the 2nd time. You'll likely to learn a little bit more for every time you see it. I've watched it 12 times now...


Vampires are no longer creatures of the night.. hmmm... that's something I don't feel right. It's just romanticizing vampires further than before. Besides the good looking protagonists, nothing really interests me. Better dead than vampirized!


The pace is good with great atmosphere. You'd keep wondering what'd happen next. I watched this a few years back and I really want to see it again.


It should have been a great film but somehow the plot is kind of silly, that changed everything, from promising to disappointing. Imagine a bunch of powerful people killing each other for something that doesn't even work, how lame is that? I'd say Jump is more interesting than this one.

The Strangers

No plot at all
Not scary at all
Don't bother it at all


I really enjoyed every single second of this movie, and I'm not even a big fan of animation. In fact it's the first time that I'd give an animation such a high rating. WALL-E is so lovable and cute. The story is simple but meaningful. I must say this is a must see for everyone.

You Don't Mess With the Zohan

This movie was funny in general, and I liked the premises, there're positive messages. But I found the sex things in the salon were exaggerated and awkard at times.

Meet Dave
Meet Dave(2008)

I watched the trailer, and it reminded me of the human-size spaceship in M.I.B. (with a little-green-man pilot inside the head) !

Update: I finally watched it and it was hilarious as I thought it should be.


It was ridiculous. They just sent one guy in a hazard zone without securing the whole building and the people inside. It's like sending in a forensic personnel without securing the crime scene first. This movie would have been better...

She's the Man

There are only a few chick movies that I really dig, and this is one of them. It's warm and funny, with some surprises. Amanda was quite fit to the role and definitely talented. Canning didn't had a big part in it but I was satisfied with it.

10,000 B.C.
10,000 B.C.(2008)

If you think this is about stone-age men you're wrong. In fact the historic setting is pretty screwed up and the plot is just embarrassingly ridiculous and boring. CGI is well done but that doesn't overcome the problems of the movie.

I'd strongly suggest you to check out Jason Scott Lee's Rapa Nui, and Arnold's Conan the Barbarian for better taste and entertainment.

The Adventures of Milo and Otis

Back in the 80s when there were reports about animal suffers and death during the making of this film, my parents didn't want me to see it. I wanted to see it so the cats and dogs wouldn't be drowned and suffered for nothing.

Remember the Daze

Remember the Daze is a portrait of the teenagers through the events taken place on the last school day. A portrait is always left to viewers to interpretation. The songs are beautiful I have felt in love with some of them already.

w Delta z
w Delta z(2006)

When the credit rolled I wowed... couldn't believe that was actually, surprisingly good in many levels. In some ways WAZ looked a lot like SAW, which I didn't really enjoy much, but it took a different angle and the outcome was brilliant. Two thumbs up!


Although Naina is a rip-off of Hong Kong film The Eye (2002), it's quite decent compared to other Bollywood craps. Sometimes I even find this more interesting than the Hollywood remake. So check this one out if you have chance.


This movie is made for Rachel Nichols, who's deserved it by her solid performance in acting ( she also gets soaking wet and screams all she can). I hope from now on she will take more leading roles than just being an eye candy.

P2 might not be a culture classic in thriller genre, but it's a little fun drive in a parking garage of all time. 3 and a half stars for rating is pretty fair.

Mou gaan dou (Infernal Affairs)

In most of the movies you would either see a lot more of the good guys (such as Hard Boiled, Silence of the Lamb) or more of the bad guys (such as A Better Tomorrow, Good Fellas). The beauty of this movie is both the good cop and bad cop equally share the depth. Somehow I have the feeling that this movie is influenced by Richard Gere's Internal Affairs, but it takes the thriller to a new level.

I can't say it is more intelligent than the re-make The Departed, but Infernal Affairs is definitely filled with unspeakable intense, you'd feel like holding a time bomb not knowing when it would go off. So don't let your guard down when seeing this movie.


A perfectly good example of how a bad sequel ruins the classic. This one simply kisses "Get away from her you bitch" Ripley goodbye.

My comment on Alien 3: "That's it, man. Game over, man"

A Chinese Odyssey

This one easily tops Stephen Chow's best. Even if you're not familiar with Hong Kong culture, you'll find yourself laughing a lot.

Mo jong yuen So Hat-Yi (King of Beggars)

This one definitely one of Stephen Chow's best. The only bad thing is the subtitle translation is not done well, some humors are lost in the lines, some even carry wrong translation (like the ambush scene where they are not hunting for the beggar clan as it is translated, they indeed claim themselves as the beggar clan)

Rambo III
Rambo III(1988)

Rambo joins Osama Bin's freedom fighters in Afghanistan to fight against the Russians. Nothing more than a brainless action movie, and like the Rambo 2, it's all about body count. Since I like FPS games, so I have every reason to rate this high.

Rambo (Rambo IV)

Spare me the crap about character development of Rambo because it has none. The real John J Rambo has died in First Blood, after that Rambo 2 and 3 are like spin off with pointless killings. This one makes no exception. Pick a war zone and start body count, only this time it is mostly done by a .50 cal turret.

Rambo: First Blood Part II

From this point you have to forget about the Rambo you've known in First Blood. This one has made Rambo a God. What you care about in it is body count. Since I like FPS games, so I have every reason to rate this high.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Some people always whine about Willie or Short Round. Well, if you can't appreciate a great movie like this one, you're a very sad person.

Die Hard 2
Die Hard 2(1990)

The same thing happens to the same guy twice

The Rock
The Rock(1996)

The best of Michael Bay so far, this one easily tops the action movie of all time.

Die Hard: With a Vengeance

This one lives up to the hype.

Die Hard
Die Hard(1988)

Needless to say, this is an all-time classic.

The Fifth Element

This movie gets all the elements you need to enjoy a movie. If you're truly a movie lover, you shouldn't bash this movie just because it is a French production.


This is the original Stargate, so you won't find Richard Dean Anderson or characters like sam and teal'c. And yes, James Spader is a much better Daniel Jackson, hands down

First Blood
First Blood(1982)

Many Rambo fans have no idea that "Rambo Part 1" is originally titled "First Blood".

Dark City
Dark City(1998)

This one is probably the most overlooked sci-fi/thriller/horror, but slightly popular than The Thirteenth Floor which was released shortly after this one.
