Incredibles 2 - The Awesome Sequel to that Fun Superheroes Family

After 14 years, finally this fantastic family of superheroes movie got its deserved sequel. I honestly cannot remember where exactly I saw this one as it has been so long ago, but I did remember that it was quite awesome, rather heavy and touching. So when I found out about the planned sequel which was going to be released in summer 2018, I have already set my mind to make sure I did not miss out on this movie. Today, as my office was given an off day, my wife and I went out to new coffee shops and continue to Gandaria City mall which was nearby those places. Thanks to 1 of her friends, we could use cinema vouchers from him in the IMAX studio. Without further ado, here is more on the movie.

Brief Story Line

The Parr family consisted of Bob/Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson - Poltergeist, Coach TV series etc) with his wife Helen/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter - The Piano, The Big Sick etc) and their children Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner) and baby Jack Jack were a family of superheroes and wanted to fight & help people in need. However, the world could no longer accept the existence of superheroes and they were forced to stop what they were doing, especially when their last battle with a supervillain resulted to a huge damage to the city.

(TV SERIES) Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 2 - An Unfortunately Disappointing Second Season of An Unusual Superhero

Many months ago, I have been meaning to write about season 1 of this series, as it shared the same universe as the other series of DaredevilLuke CageIron Fist which culminated to The Defenders. But somehow I forgotten to write it and when the second season premiered in March 2018, I focused my attention to it. Due to some reasons, I only managed to finish watching the whole season around last week. Now let us move on to the series. 

Brief Story Line (Spoiler warning for those who have not seen Season 1)

Story was set after the first season concluded, where Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter - Confessions of a Shopaholic, Veronica Mars TV series etc) got the unnecessary attention after she killed the villain Kilgrave who was able to control people's minds. Jessica preferred to be inconspicuous due to her work as Private Investigator. Her neighbor Malcolm (Eka Darville - Mr. Pip etc) considered himself as Jessica's assistant and also helped her in doing some ground work. Jessica's best friend Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor - Transformers, The Darkest Hour etc) was trying to get Jessica to find out the truth behind IGH, the organization that experimented on Jessica and made her become powerful.

Manhunt - John Woo Returns to His Earlier Movie Style

Yesterday night, when I returned back home from accompanying my wife trying out new restaurant & coffee shop, I was looking for movies that I could watch on TV. Then I noticed in Celestial Movie channel, there was a new movie premiering at 9 PM which was directed by John Woo. The brief synopsis promised to be having lots of actions and I was also a fan of John Woo's movies as well. So I decided to give this a try. OK let us move on with the movie.

Brief Story Line

A Chinese lawyer named Du Qiu (Zhang Hanyu - The Taking of Tiger Mountain, Operation Mekong etc) was working for a Japanese pharmaceutical company named Tenjin, led by Sakai (Jun Kunimura - Lady Joker, live version of Fullmetal Alchemist etc) and was very successful in winning various legal cases for them. One night during a major party held by Tenjin, Du Qiu met with a mysterious Chinese/Japense woman named Mayumi (singer Stephy Qi) and after the party, he woke up with an unknown female deceased body on his bed. Feeling innocent & framed, Du Qiu decided to flee the police chase and tried to clear his name.
