Another film on my must watch list.
Director Kim Bora’s coming of age short film HOUSE OF HUMMINGBIRD.
A meticulous and compelling study of adolescence filtered through the lens of a 14 yr old girl.

❤️Kim Hyang-gi❤️ in INNOCENT WITNESS.
I’ve been meaning to watch this film before her new drama but have been too busy.
Hyang-gi was nominated for best actress. Can’t wait to watch it.

    No idea who the actress is, but she has literally the same expression in every single scene in the trailer? Except the screaming part obviously.

      Oh goodness, someone else that noticed. She’s Crystal Liu/Liu Yifei. To my family, she is China’s Kim Tae Hee / Suzy. In the things we’ve seen her in, her beauty is ethereal but her acting could be much better. Mulan is a hard pass for us.

        I hear you but I love the ensemble veterans Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Gong Li, Tzi Ma,Rosalind Chao etc are dang solid.
        I think it’ll be interesting since it’s based more on the legend than the Disney version of Mulan. I wish they’d included a Chinese writer. I don’t trust the western interpretations of other cultures.

          I actually wished they had gone full on Disney with the unforgettable songs, Shang, Mushu, and everything. For accuracy we had the version with Vicki Zhao and them trying to go that route they’ll never beat it.

            Apparently, this Disney version will actually include INSTRUMENTAL versions of the songs from the original animated version 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ And Mushu is being replaced by a phoenix

    I was totally waiting for a glimpse of Li Shang but didn’t see any. Heard there wasn’t even gonna be a Shang.. I hope that was fake news ‘cos I really loved his character in the cartoon

      From what I read, Shang is not part of this MULAN version. Donnie Yen’s character is the commander and Mulan’s mentor. Her rival turns love interest is one of the recruits.

        Aww, I would have loved to see the live version Shang.

        Guess this will be her personal journey to female bad-assery, sans any romance at all. Still good though ‘cos I love her.

        Although, I will need to keep reminding myself to treat this as completely separate from the animation Mulan so I don’t keep comparing.

ONE SPRING NIGHT took over the top spot for Wed and maybe tomorrow too. Love this slow burn romance and all the baggage that comes with it. Here is hoping for the writer to stick the landing 🙏.

      After competing almost every year, BONG JOON-HO finally did it for S.Korea. I was rooting for PARASITE to win and I’m so happy that it did!
      This has been long overdue.

      Some reviews said that this is Bong’s best film to date which is raising a high bar that he already set with MEMORIES OF MURDER.
      I’m so excited I can’t stand it.

      I’m not planning on watching the remake. This is very Korean in every way and that’s why I enjoyed it. I don’t want anything more or less.

        Not just that it is Korean. Every export HW touches turns out to be less than or absolute garbage.

        The closet one that did not have me banging my head against a wall is The Magnificent Seven. And I am being kind on that end.

          It can go both ways but HW often miss terribly imo.

          I thought INTERNAL AFFAIRS was ok but still prefer the original with Andy Lau.

            The Departed was pretty good…but that is about it. I never saw it as the masterpiece others did.
