《美人魚》--星爺今時今日嘅戲, 算罷啦!


《美人魚》
用周星馳做比較參準,我絕不喜歡這齣賀歲片。
簡言之,這是一套大陸片,配粵語配得很差勁。
CG特技,以今時今日星爺的集資、投資能力,未免差強人意。
笑料好笑嗎?全場只有一個位令我真笑,就是八爪魚倒吊氹氹轉。
本片把握了環保潮流作主題嗎?諷刺大陸土豪夠勇嗎?大快人心嗎?中央主調一貫高調要淘汰不環保、高污染的行業,更多年來堅持調控地產市場,美人魚不過緊跟中央調子辦事,沒有什麼值得大驚小怪,絕對安全過安全。至於裸曝土豪姿態,星爺面對大陸市場爭取奇蹟般的票房,是理所當然的計算。
同樣的笑料,由當年的星爺綠葉班底,肯定好睇好多。

以後睇怕不會再上星爺的當。(今次都係被人游說入場的)

《Interesting》--A book I have been waiting for over 15 years



Interesting

This is the autobiography of Steve Davis, truly a legend of professional snooker. A book I have been waiting for over 15 years. Steve revealed how he fancied with snooker at his very early age and his father was his mentor and crucial to his professional career.
In his era, a time from amateur to professional, Steve like other players did a lot of exhibitions to earn his living other than prize money. There is no escape of mentioning those big names such as Alex Higgins, Willie Thorne, Dennis Taylor, Jimmy White, Steven Hendry, Ronnie O’Sullivan and vividly exposed them with lot of compelling stories never heard before.
You wanna know why Steve was nicknamed as Nugget which was not the first nickname of Steve.
You wanna know how he said about Hendry?
You wanna know the goods and bads of Alex Higgins from Steve’s mouth?
You wanna know how tough a life he’s been facing when he reached the apex of his career?
You wanna know the classic match of the final black of the 1986 World Championship between Steve and Dennis?

Don’t miss it.

《At Home》欺詐計劃--沒有血緣的五口家庭患難相扶的感人故事


At Home
竹野內豐、松雪泰子主演。
一個沒有血緣關係的五口家庭,「夫婦」森山和彥(竹野內豐)和皐月(松雪泰子)分別以偷竊和婚姻詐騙為生,「大仔」淳是個偽造證件甚至印假銀紙的高手,「二女」明日香則是國中生,「細仔」隆史則是個小學生,五人都有不堪回憶的過去,卻在因緣巧合的情況下生活在同一屋簷下。
隆史是受虐兒童,施虐者竟然是冷血的父母,隆史被和彥入屋爆竊時發現,和彥在同情心的驅使下將隆史救出並收留。至於哥哥淳則出於富裕之家,卻得不到父母的愛護關懷和弟弟的尊重,最終離家出走。
二妹明日香被父親性侵而萌生自殺之念,在月台遇上遭丈夫家暴的母親皐月被救下來及收留,並互認為母女相互扶持,在偶遇的情況下跟和彥一家結成感情關係極融洽的家庭,成員間相互關懷。可是,快樂的家庭卻因皐月詐騙失誤遭對方綁架勒索而陷入危機,彼此雖然沒有血緣,和彥盡力設法營救,患難中真的盡見真情,結果在交付贖金救人的過程中,意想不到最小的隆史竟然將勒索犯槍殺,事情鬧大了如何收科?
當然珍惜這個得來不易的溫暖家庭的五位成員不會大難臨頭各自飛……
他們的背景其實都反映日本常見的社會問題:家暴、虐兒、性侵、缺乏對子女的真正關愛、釋囚重生的困難(和彥是釋囚)
戲的主題其實可從淳跟師傅(教他偽造技術的印刷所老闆,亦即和彥坐牢時的囚友)的一段對話中突顯出來。淳印製一千萬日圓假鈔以支付贖金,在印出成品後交給師傅過目時,問師傅假鈔是否夠逼真,可瞞天過海?師傅跟他說:真不真其實並不重要,最重要是使用得自然,其實背後說出了人生的道理,是否真的父子、夫婦、兄弟姊妹其實不重要,最重要是在同一屋子下,是否活出父慈子孝、相敬如賓、手足相護那份關懷,才是真義。
