I watched Master of the Drunken Fist Beggar So yesterday. It is one of the martial arts movies I taped. It has Zhi Hui Chen, Jun Cao, and Ying Wang in it.
Warning: there is some violence and there are subtitles.
Before I begin I should say that I had been studying Shaolin Kung Fu via youtube. One of the various forms is the drunken fist. I actually tried it. It’s a pretty cool form because it confuses the opponent.
In this movie, a man named So Chen is a wealthy military scholar. While the other scholars wait for the Emperor to show up, So sneaks in the kitchen to steal some food. He hides under the table and finds another thief. This thief knows the Drunken Fist form and he frames So in a big conspiracy. So’s family gets exiled and killed. So becomes a beggar with a beggar sect. He learns that thief that framed him is the leader of the sect. Instead of killing him, he joins the cause to bring down the man who ordered his family killed.
I really liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Fearless. It is another martial arts movie.
I watched The Bronze yesterday. It was one of the movies I taped when the movie channels were free previews. It has Melissa Rauch, Gary Cole, Sebastian Stan, Haley Lu Richardson, Dominique Dawes, Olga Korbut, Dominique Moceanu, and Thomas Middleditch.
Warning: there is lots of cussing and one sex scene.
This movie was supposed to funny, but it’s not funny to me. It was an ok movie. It’s about a gymnast named Hope. She’s bitter because she lost after she had an injury. Her old coach dies and she gets a letter saying to be a coach to another gymnast and she will receive some money. So she does for the money, but she later finds out there is no money, but she coaches anyway.
Next week I’m watching Master of the Drunken Fist: Beggar So. It is another martial art movie I taped.
I watched Man of Tai Chi yesterday. It was one of the martial art movies I taped when I had some movie channels that were previews. It has Tiger Hu Chen, Keanu Reeves, Karen Mok, Hai Yu, Qing Ye, and Simon Yam.
Warning: there is some violence.
Man of Tai Chi is about a man of Tai Chi. lol It’s about a man named Tiger who tries to show the world that Tai Chi can be used in fighting. Another man named Donaka owns an underground fighting club. He sees how good Tiger is and recruits him into the club. But later on, Tiger wants out when he learns that he has to fight to the death. He also learns that it’s much more about fighting.
I think Keanu Reeves represented the devil. I liked the movie. Next week I’m watching The Bronze.
I watched Money Monster yesterday. I had taped it when some movie channels were free previews. It has George Clooney, Julia Roberts (she’s so pretty), Jack O’Connell, Dominic West, Caitriona Balfe, Giancarlo Esposito, Christopher Denham, and Lenny Venito.
Warning: there is a little bit violence and one sad part at the end.
In this movie, a man named Lee Gates is a wall street tv host. He gives tips on the stock market. Another man named Kyle decides to take the tv show over. He even puts on a bomb vest on the host. He later tells Lee that the bomb is a fake. Kyle wants to know what happened to 8 million dollars that one company had “lost.” The company kept saying it was a computer glitch. Later on, the truth came out and the company was investigated for fraud.
Even though it ended in a sad way, I liked the movie. Next week I’m watching Man of Tai Chi. I had taped alot of martial arts movies also.
I did watch The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Thursday. It is based on the book by Stephen Chbosky. The movie was directed and written by him too. The movie has Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Dylan McDermott, Ezra Miller,
Nina Dobrev, Kate Walsh, Johnny Simmons, Paul Rudd, Joan Cusack, and Zane Holtz.
Warning: there is some sad parts.
There weren’t many differences between the book and movie. One was that Brad calls Patrick a bad name and that’s what started the fight in the book. It doesn’t mention that Charlie was in a fight before. Charlie goes to a doctor before he is in the hospital at the end. He calls his teacher Bill in the book.
I did like the movie. I can’t say if I liked the book or movie best. I’m waiting on my next book to movie book so next week (maybe on Sunday) I’m watching Money Monster. I had taped the movie when I had some movie channels were previews.
I watched The Other Boleyn Girl yesterday. It is based on the book by Philippa Gregory. It has Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana, Jim Sturgess, Mark Rylance, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ana Torrent, and Eddie Redmayne in it.
Warning: there is some disturbing scenes and one rape scene.
There are some differences between the movie and book:
1. There was no rape scene in the book. Henry doesn’t rape Anne. But she does tease him a lot.
2. There is no incest part. There are some incest hints though.
3. Mary has two kids by Henry. Not one.
4. Mary doesn’t see Henry when Anne is about to be beheaded. She does see her father to plea for him to save both her brother and sister.
I liked the movie even with the differences. I would like to see the tv movie someday which was on BBC. Thursday I’m watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
I watched Psych the Movie last Thursday. It is based on the show Psych. It has James Roday, Dulé Hill, Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, and Corbin Bernsen.
I used to watch the show. They change days when it would come on so I forgot it was on and they canceled the show. I love the show and now I loved the movie.
In the show, Shawn and Juliet had an off and on relationship. In the movie, they are engaged. The ring Shawn gave her was stolen and he was looking everywhere for it. Juliet’s partner dies and Shawn and Gus offer to help. Shawn finds out an informant is behind the murder. They catch the murderer. Shawn gets help finding the ring and marries Juliet.
Next week I’m watching The Boleyn Girl. I’m reading the book today. Also next week I’m watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I’m listening to the book later next week.
