Ab-normal Beauty

Director: Oxide Pang Chun

Language: Cantonese

Rated: R

Tartan Video: December 26, 2005

101 Minutes
From Amazon:
Jiney is a beautiful and talented photography student. One day she witnesses a gruesome car accident but instead of being horrified she finds herself aroused. Overcome with an excitement and satisfaction, she becomes obsessed with photographing death. Her obsession with death may just get her killed.

I was bored today and didn't feel like working on homework so I decided to browse through my netflix and I found this movie on there. It's not going to be available for Instant Queue after November 30th so I decided to watch it now. It was actually really good. I love the fact that the movie totally lets you into Jin's world as she descends into madness through her death obsession. The actress, Race Wong, portrayed Jin amazingly! Overall, awesome movie. There were a couple of things that I didn't particularly like but overall, it was faaaantastic!

So, the movie is about this chick named Jin and her...girlfriend (?) I think....Jas. I don't actually know if it's her girlfriend as that is never directly stated BUT they act like girlfriends. But then there is this part where Jas' parents come home and Jin is like, "Hi Aunt, and Uncle." WHAT? haha. Ok. Anyways, moving on. So, Jin and Jas like photography and they just walk around taking pictures and things. Well, at one point Jin takes a death shot of this woman who was hit by a car dieing thus resulting in her obsession with death. This Jin girl just completely gets consumed by death. I really liked watching her go, practically, insane because...well...that's always fun right?

I definitely recommend checking this one out. If you have Netflix, you can check it out on instant queue until November 30th....if not then...whatever haha. I'd check it out though. It was actually really good even if it isn't exactly scary...or terrifying or too gory, it was still great!

My Rating: 4/5

28 Days Later

Director: Danny Boyle

Rated: R

20th Century Fox: October 21,2003

113 Minutes
From Amazon:
Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up from a coma to find London deserted--until he runs into a mob of crazed plague victims. He gradually finds other still-human survivors (including Naomie Harris), with whom he heads off across the abandoned countryside to find the source of a radio broadcast that promises salvation.

I actually watched....'28 Weeks Later' before I saw this one. I only picked it up because it was in a $2 bin at the store haha! AWESOME! AND because everyone was telling me how a-ma-zing it was. So, I checked it out. And I didn't like it as much as I liked '28 Weeks Later.' I don't know why. Maybe it was because, on the cover of my DVD, it said it was the scariest movie since 'The Exorcist.' Or maybe it was because it just wasn't scary at all......I don't know. At any rate, it was a decent movie and I'm happy it's part of my disgustingly huge collection!! haha.

The movie is about a guy...I don't remember his name right now. So he....was in an hit by a car or something and woke up and everyone was just gone. So he walks around yelling "HELLO!" for awhile. It was very....'Resident Evil' like. The beginning was anyways. It just reminded me of that part of 'Resident Evil' when Alice wakes up naked in the hospital and then walks outside and there is just papers and stuff flying everywhere and no one around. So, the whole movie is this guy and some chick and some other peoples trying to run away from zombies and find protection or whatever.

Overall, this movie was alrighttt. I'm happy to have it, especially at $2, but it's nothing extraordinary. And I liked '28 Weeks Later' much better! I get how the movies tie together but....there's nothing that like...has things from the first one into the second except for the whole...zombie thing, you know? And I thought it would be the same characters from movie one to movie 2 but whatever, they're both good either way.

My Rating: 4/5
