Ip Man 3 叶问 3

Synopsis: Ip Man (Donnie Yen) takes on disciple, Bruce Lee, and engage in frequent sparring sessions to hone his skill after seeing great potential. Meanwhile, a well-known property developer-cum-street fighter played by American boxer Mike Tyson, challenges Ip Man in an incredible showdown of Wing Chun kung fu versus heavyweight boxing. In a never-seen-before union of Ip Man, Bruce Lee (revived by computer graphics) and Mike Tyson, the past and the present unite as a tribute to two of China’s greatest fighters. [Source: Golden Village]

I guess this is the final installation of Donnie Yen's Ip Man. The pace of the story in this version is more compact, faster, more fighting scenes and more funny moments that showed the soft side and down to earth of Ip Man's character. I really enjoyed watching the movie. Really a great Chinese gung-fu show not to be missed.

May the Force be with You. Well, the Force is definitely with the film as it broke all records on the opening weekend in USA and Canada and become the fastest film to cross the 1 billion mark worldwide. With such impressive records, this is definitely a film not to be missed. Expects lots of laser shooting actions, ground and air battle scenes, familiar robots and familiar character appearing in the movie. Unfortunately, the movie ends on a cliff hanger. Can't wait for the Episode 8 to be released in 2017.

Synopsis: In SPECTRE, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. [Source: Golden Village]

Actions, actions and more actions. Well, the adrenaline and gun fires are not bad, but can the director don't let Bond always end up kissing a girl whenever they are alone. It just doesn't make sense. Spectre continues where Skyfall has left off, and it finally brings an end to the villain that has been terrorizing M16 and bond from the past few movies. Overall, an average movie.
