Popcorns and City Of God

Oh yeah! Another superb foreign movie I saw (back in 2003) and would like to share.


The title is Cidade De Deus (City of God), it is based in a neighborhood in Brazil with the same name. If you are looking for chilling violence, fantastic cinematography, good pack of independent actors, and striking story line in a movie, then this is it!

The movie is about the characters of Li’l Ze (later became Li’l Dice), Bene, Rocket (the protagonist), and Goose (one of the Tender Trio). It started out in the early years of the neighborhood, City of God, with the infamous Tender Trio hoodlums shattered the streets. The movie will then transition to the time of the main characters’ time. The story is about the three childhood friends’ journey to life in choosing the right and wrong paths. The rise and fall of an infamous gang leader.

The movie is in Portuguese but you can get a copy with English subs. It’s a high amp, fast moving, extraordinary movie. Eto ang real gangster movie!

Ang kicker? This movie is a true story. I freakin' highly recommend this movie!!

Popcorns and Pan's Labyrinth

I saw this movie two years ago when my brother lends the DVD saying “watch this…kickass ‘to”. When I first saw the cover, I was like “what! Another fantasy shit”, but since it was a foreign movie, which I love watching, and I saw the manning up of this movie in a lot of international film awards which is stamped on its cover, then I know this stuff must be great.

The story at first is a bit dragging, but just a few and short parts only, then it will just grab your attention as it becomes fast paced and interesting. The movie is a mix of reality and fantasy, the actors did well in this movie. However, I was stunned by its ending. It will definitely play with your imagination and your emotions because of the twist. You will have to choose which ending you want.

One of the international films that I rate perfect five stars!
