Eat Drink Man Woman - Reaction


Taiwanese movie about a retired chef and his three daughters looking for men. Quite good. Really shows the personal development of all the characters. I was a bit disappointed that the food wasn't more focal.

[I estimated the date I watched this movie.]

The Caine Mutiny - Reaction

Humphrey Bogart plays an incompetent ship's captain in WWII. Pretty decent. The acting and suspense are good, even if the story is thin.

I, Curmudgeon - Reaction

Hilarious through surprisingly depressing documentary on curmudgeon-ness and the people who exhibit it. Basically, a movie exploring people who are bitter at the world and/or very expressive about their opinions on everything. Felt longer than it actually was (1.5 hours), perhaps because it caused introspection and thought.

24 Hours on Craigslist - Reaction

Neat movie elaborating on some of the posts made on one particular random day. Very reflective of the diversity of community.

Collateral - Reaction

Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx are, respectively, a hired killer and taxi-cab driver in this film set in Los Angeles. Decent suspense/action flick with good storytelling and excellent evocation of the setting (night-time LA).
