To answer that burning question, yes, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have heaps of chemistry in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." You'll enjoy their banter, and possibly understand the wet dreams their agents had when putting together this comedy-thriller. You won't, however, understand why most of this film had to be punctuated by the noisy sight and sound of guns and grenades when smart dialogue would have been far cleverer.
Not much happens in "The World." But there's a reason why it's been so widely acclaimed. The devil is in the details captured by "sixth generation" mainland director Jia Zhangke. Watch it once, and it'll leave one impression. Watch it twice and another scene will leap out. It's modern China as seen through the eyes of characters who don't know where they're going, or where they came from.
Perhaps "The Wedding Date" should have been called "The Wedding Disaster" or maybe "The Wedding Drivel," or quibble, or dribble. Yes, this "romantic comedy" is so dull these are the kinds of inane word-association games you might end up playing to pass the time.
"Sin City" is a big-screen version of a comic book that looks and acts like a comic book. This is a good thing. The men speak as if they just stepped out of a 40s pulp-fiction novel. The women look like they stepped out of "Playboy." The storyline unfolds like "Pulp Fiction." If you treat the excessive violence as - you guessed it - comic bookish, you'll have heaps of fun.
Africa’s highest mountain Kilimanjaro rises to over 19,000 feet, and getting to its famed snow capped peak means traversing through five distinct weather climates. Climbing it is the equivalent of going from a tropical paradise to Antarctica in a matter of days. Only half those who attempt the climb make it to the peak. These are just a few of the facts various narrators dramatically mention during “Kilimanjaro,” which is making its Hong Kong debut at the Space Museum.
