Across the world in search for amazing movies
Last year, Caroline @ Beauty is a Sleeping cat hosted World Cinema Series, sort of like a blog challenge. I often joined book challenge and never done any movie challenge till last year. There are so many movie blogathon but a movie challenge is quite rare. So, I jumped in on the challenge straight away.
I had great time watching movies from several countries, they were:
- Låt den rätte komma in – Let The Right One In (Sweden)
- 十三人の刺客 – 13 Assassins (Japan)
- Amazing Grace (England)
- The Wind That Shakes The Barley & Perrier’s Bounty (Ireland)
- The Raid : Redemption (Indonesia)
- Prometheus (US)
- Pintu Terlarang (Indonesia)
- Napola – Elite für den Führer (Germany)
This year, Caroline hosted the same event again…yaaiiii \(^_^)/
I hope I have more countries to cover now. And unlike last year, this year I will do a lot of double review (not only for World Cinema Series…you’ll find most my movie review this year as double review which means two movies in one post).
I have begun my first movies last week, they were from England (the second country I would love to visit if lady luck visited me one day). I actually have tons of British movies ready to be watched…if only I can share them all 😉
Just like last year, I will use my map to show where the country is (with a bit of editing)
Here are the movies I have watched:
- From England: Help! & Monty Python and The Holy Grail
- From Japan: Twilight samurai & Detroit Metal City
- From China: Flowers of War
- From Austria: Funny Games
- From France: The Intouchable
- From Korea: Yonguaji X (Perfect Number)
Movies I will watch:
- From Indonesia: Not yet decided.
- From Iran: Separation (I have to watch it this year!!)
- From Ireland : When Harry Becomes a Tree (part of my Monthly Murphy)
- From Sweden: The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet Nest & The Girl Who Played With fire
- From Thailand: Chocolate & Raging Phoenix
- From USA: Warrior & The Perk Of Being A Wallflower
Note: Some of them might end one as a one movie review if I think the movie is TOO amazing to be reviewed alongside another movie 😉
