More Movies

I'm planning to see quite a few movies this year...let's see how that goes :)

Managed to watch my first chinese movie today (with English sub-titles), called Protégé. I liked it and it's a story about an undercover cop in Hong Kong who's trying to bust on of the major heroin suppliers in Hong Kong. How he manages to do it while seeing how drugs destroy people is what that movie is about. Very well made and apart from a few slow scenes, the movie was quite fast paced and thrilling.

The second one was Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. Very well made, very nice, extremely gory and that is one of the reasons why this won't be approved for screening in India (and there are others as well). The movie is completely set in the Mayan Age about how people had to fight to survive. It's about one man, Jaguar Paw fighting to save his lineage from extinction. It is so authentic, that there is not a single word in English. Thrilling but again, quite gory. If you're someone who can't stand blood/gore, don't bother watching the movie.

It's Chinese New Year today...and everything here will be closed :) Gong Xi Fa Cai!
