“Parasite” Takes You for a Wild Ride

Image
Release Date:Oct/11/2019
Genre:Drama/Thriller
Director:Bong Joon Ho
Cast:Song Kang-ho、Lee Sun-kyun、Woo-sik Choi、Park So-dam 

Viola's Rating:9.3







If a director and screenwriter only has eight feature films and wins the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, you know he’s an expert story-teller, a genius talent. Known for “Memories of Murder”, “Okja”, “Snowpiercer” and “The Host”, Director Joon-ho Bong’s good at telling parables about social status, and his latest film “Parasite” on the issue again is going to be released in the US on October 11, 2019.

As the first Korean flick to win the Palme d’Or, this dramatic thriller takes a close look at the all unemployed Ki-taek's family taking bizarre interest in the affluent and attractive Parks for their livelihood until they get entangled in an unexpected incident.



Besides an amazing director, there are a bunch of awesome actors and actresses in “Parasite”, especially the award-winning Kang-ho Song, who cooperates with Director Bo…

甫落幕的第72屆坎城影展,南韓導演奉俊昊執導的《寄生上流》在評審團無異議通過下,成為首部獲得影展最高榮譽金棕櫚獎的南韓電影。奉俊昊導演並非多產的創作者,但在長片作品不到十部的情況下,奪得坎城影展最大獎,便可得知,其拍攝作品不但重質不重量,內容所探討的廣度與深度也是能夠觸及普世價值,而非拘泥於韓國國內的題材。


“Wild Rose” Pulls at Heartstrings

Release Date:Jun/21/2019
Genre:Drama/Music

Viola's Rating:8.4













With “A Star Is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” being released in 2018 and “Rocketman” in 2019, more and more music related feature films are brought into the market. Watching films is not only a visual celebration nowadays, but also an audio feast. If 2018 is the musical year for the US, then 2019 is for the UK. With its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8 2018, the Scottish flick “Wild Rose” was released on April 12 2019 in the UK and June 12 in the US.

Casting Jessie Burkley, an Irish actress and singer, just like “A Star Is Born” did, this musical drama discusses how a young, single-mom musician from Glasgow, Rose-Lynn, dreams of becoming a Nashville country music star and her inside battle between pursuing her dream career and taking care of her family.

It has been said that mothers give up their own dreams for children an…

繼2018年《A Star Is Born 一個巨星的誕生》《Bohemian Rhapsody 波希米亞狂想曲》、2019年的《Rocketman火箭人》與即將上映的《Yesterday靠譜歌王》,近期越來越多音樂電影。看電影不再只是視覺享受,也是一場屬於聽覺的饗宴。如果說2018年是美國音樂電影的一年,那2019年就是屬於英國音樂電影的一年,去年在多倫多影展世界首映的蘇格蘭電影《鏗鏘玫瑰》也入選台北電影節「當代精選」單元,同時,也將在7月21日正式上映,喜歡音樂電影的人可千萬不能錯過了。






“Aladdin”: A Whole Old World

Release Date:May/24/2019
Genre:Adventure/Comedy/Family
Director:Guy Ritchie
Cast:Will Smith、Mena Massoud、Naomi Scott、Marwan Kenzari、Numan Acar

Viola's Rating:6.6







Starting with “Cinderella”, “The Jungle Book” and “Beauty and the Beast”, Disney continues to turn its classic animations into live-action feature films. In 2019, there will be three classic adaptations. With “Dumbo” being the first, here comes “Aladdin”, and “Lion King” is waiting to be released in the summer. Although “Aladdin” is overall better than “Dumbo”, which continues the story instead of reprises it, it doesn’t give the audience “a whole new world” as its theme song sings.

As a live-action adaptation of Disney's 1992 animated film of the same name, which is based on the eponymous tale from “One Thousand and One Nights”, this adventurous family comedy tells the story of a kind-hearted young street rat, Aladdin, and a power-hungry Grand Vizier, Jafar, competing for a magical lamp that has the power to make their dee…

Viola's Rating:6.6

從《Cinderella 仙履奇緣》、《The Jungle Book 與森林共舞》與《Beauty and the Beast 美女與野獸》開始,迪士尼的經典動畫改編真人電影計畫普遍受到大眾喜愛,光是2019年就有「經典三部曲」的真人改編推出。打頭陣的《Dumbo 小飛象》雖說評價普通,但也勾起不少大小朋友的童年回憶,而日前上映的《Aladdin 阿拉丁》雖然針對原版有些細節的微調,但也不至於到令人驚豔的地步,甚至整體來說了無新意。即便如此,光是動聽的原聲帶與這些調整,它仍是一部使人心情舒暢的電影。


“I Am Mother”: A New Journey with AI

Release Date:Jun/7/2019
Genre:Drama/Horror/Sci-Fi
Director:Grant Sputore
Cast:Hilary Swank、Clara Rugaard、Rose Byrne

Viola's Rating:8.0







It has been a while since AI and humanity are discussed within feature films, and when there’s an Australian low-budget, all-female cast sci-fi covering the issue released in the US, and it has done an amazing job of leaving the audience guessing the outcome and ramping up the tension, it’s definitely worth taking a look.

Being put on The Black List in 2016, the annual survey of the "most liked" film screenplays not yet produced, the dramatic, horror sci-fi is finally produced and released in 2019. The main plot is about a teenage girl, “Daughter”, who is raised by a caring robot "Mother" -- designed to repopulate the earth following the extinction of mankind. When an incomprehensible stranger, “Woman”, arrives at their site bring alarming news, the unique bond and relationship between Daughter and Mother is threatened.

隨著時代進步,以AI為主題的科幻電影題材也越來越多。在機器人發展初期,電影多半討論人類反被自己發展出來的科技攻擊等人工智慧反撲的內容,或是如《Blade Runner 2049 銀翼殺手2049》針對複製人等科技倫理的作品。久了之後,觀眾難免疲乏,當然也要往新的面向去發展,而入選2016年指標性「黑名單劇本」的《AI終結戰》,不但從「母性」角度看待AI與人類的關係,同時也是近期最受好萊塢期待的科幻電影之一。
