Review: Murder on the Orient Express 

 

"My mom is the die-hard Christie fan in our house, and she said she enjoyed it and that it exceeded her expectations. The guy next to her, however, fell asleep. " - Olivia

"The 1974 film is a one-of-a-kind experience. Just about every star glittered and sparked. This one was like watching tv. An acceptable time killer if you can't find the remote. " - Ken

"Well made silly fun, that could have done with a bit more ‘fun’." - JB

Asian Film Awards: Snowpiercer, The Grandmaster, and More

The youngest of film awards for Asian cinema (they have quite a few) is the Asian Film Awards which are now in their 8th year. Unlike the prestigious Golden Horse which (mostly) goes to Chinese language cinema, these encompass just about anything Asian: Japan, China, India, South Korea, The Phillipines and so on. Their best picture nominees this year:

The near misses, we assume, are Ilo Ilo from Singapore (Oscar submission last year) and Hirokazu Koreeda's Like Father Like Son from Japan (the one Spielberg might remake) since they did well with nomination tallies in major categories.  If you're interested you should look at their official site because they smartly include photos of everyone - you can even see what the cinematographers, editors and costume designers look like.

Would you look at that Supporting Actor line up? OMG it must be the most gorgeous line up in any award history. OK, Huang Bo is not really an appetizing look but he's like a treasure in acting, an award show regular, I'll happily accept his funnyman look.

Since they like The Grandmaster so much, I wouldn't complain if they sub Huang Bo with either Chang Chen or Zhang Jin from The Grandmaster. Then it would be a perfect five in the line up.

PJ - it is a beautiful quartet.

Not a single nomination for an Iranian film breaks my heart.

I'm surprised that:

- Angeli Bayani was not mentioned as Best Actress/Supporting Actress for Ilo Ilo (Singapore).
- Eugene Domingo makes it for Best Actress for Barber's Tales (The Philippines). I guess APSA really loves.
- No mention whatsoever of The Past (Iran).
- The Missing Picture (Cambodia) snub?
- Transit? On the Job? Quick Change? So many great films from the Philippines!
