Quentin Tarantino’s Top Films of 2009

Posted by LiveFor on December 15, 2009

He hasn’t seen a few films such as Avatar and The Lovely Bones, but his list of the top 8 is pretty good.

I agree with him on a few of them. However, I haven’t seen all of the films and I have to disagree with him and many other people on An Education being a great film. I thought it was absolutely dreadful – like a poor ITV Sunday evening drama with poor characterisation, ridiculous story and it seemed to lose its nerve half way through (yes I know it is based on a true story). After reading good things about it I really wanted to like it, but it sucked big ones. As for Carey Mulligan’s character everyone is raving on her performance which was good, but I just wanted to shake her character and say stop being so stupid….Hmm well that turned into a bit of a rant didn’t it!

Star Trek and Drag Me to Hell were both excellent.

I’ll let Quentin get on with it.
Vodpod videos no longer available.


What do you think of his list? Agree or disagree?

I’ve not posted my 2009 Year in Review which includes my Top 10 Movies.

Raging Phoenix – You will believe in a kick-ass hip hop martial arts girl

Posted by LiveFor on July 10, 2009

Jeeja Yanin (aka Jija Yanin) star of Chocolate made a big impression in her debut martial arts film. Instead of being an autistic martial arts lady the taekwondo-trained actress will be mixing up romance and some form of hip-hop dancing into her screen fighting performance in Raging Phoenix.

Chocolate – Taste the Fury

Posted by LiveFor on December 31, 2008

Here is the poster and trailer for Chocolate, which stars newcomer Nicharee “Jeeja” Vismistananda. The film is co-written and directed by Prachya Pinkaew (Tony Jaa’s Ong Bak and The Protector).

Jeeja plays an autistic girl who learns how to fight both by absorbing her martial arts skills from what she sees on TV and from the Muay thai boxing school next to her home. When she finds a list of debtors in her sick mother’s diary, she decides to go collecting. Her quest leads her to confrontations with criminal gangs and also her father, a member of the Japanese mafia.

The character sounds a bit like the deaf character Echo created by David Mack and Joe Quesada.

Wikipedia describes her as Maya Lopez is an Olympic-level athlete possessing “photographic reflexes” or the uncanny ability to perfectly copy other people’s movements, similar to that of the Taskmaster. Just by watching other people, she has become a concert-level pianist, a strong martial artist, a highly skilled acrobat, and a gifted ballerina (and on one occasion even piloted a Quinjet for a few minutes). In addition, she has also gained Bullseye’s uncanny aim and Daredevil’s acrobatic abilities after watching tapes of their fights.
