To Be Or Not To Be (1942).

One of the best Hollywood comedies I've seen, right up there with - Some Like It Hot & Arsenic & the Old Lace.

I've always been a loyal fan of martial arts action star Donnie Yen (Ip Man trilogy) and this was why I was always reluctant and hesitant on watching Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmaster" portraying Bruce Lee's teacher Ip Man played by Tony Leung instead. I was somewhat against watching it because I knew Tony Leung was just an actor with no martial arts background. Unlike Donnie Yen who really knows martial arts in real-life.

Anyway, I was blown away by "The Grandmaster" seeing it on Thanksgiving weekend and learned that even Bruce Lee's own daughter endorses the film.

It's a great film - some of the most exciting fights scenes of any Asian movie in the last 5 years.

A good actor could master the ability to coreograph very good fighting scenes, martial arts or not. For example, Keano Reeves and Laurence Fishburne in The Matrix, Matt Damon in The Bourne series, etc. They had very good martial arts skilled coreographers.

Annabelle: Creation.
A bit slow at the beginning, but it had good scary scenes.

Blade Runner 2049. Loved it, visuals and music. It may be slow for some if you like explosions and movies like the Avengers/Transformers.

This movie was in production for a very long time which predates the Donnie Yen film. One of the actors who did not have any martial arts background even competed in martial arts tournaments and won. I believe it was Taiwanese actor Chang Chen. I think Tony Leung had very ample amount of time for training. Wong Kar Wai is known for taking his sweet time into making his movies.

Glad to say William Shatter did Harvey Dent justice.
