The Karate kid
Martial arts drama film
The story follows 12-year-old Dre Parker (Smith) from Detroit, Michigan, who moves to Beijing, China with his widowed mother Sherry (Henson) and runs afoul of the neighborhood bully Cheng (Zhenwei Wang). He makes an unlikely ally in the form of an ageing maintenance man, Mr. Han (Chan), a kung fu master who teaches him the secrets of self-defence.
I love the actors in this film. Especially Jackie Chan. He was so funny and cool at the same time. He's perfect for playing role as kong fu master he's fighting was the best. Also, I think that this film is fantastic because the story have excited and heart warming scene plus good life lesson

The Lovely Bones is one of the pleasant supernatural thriller drama movie. Inspired by Alice Sebold’s 2002 novel and directed later by Peter Jackson on 2009. Starring Saoirse Ronan as a sweet 14 years old girl Susie Salmon and Stanley Tucci in the role of George Harvey, the villain in this film. The plot involves as Susie Salmon urging the need to avenge upon her own tragic death from an idealized serial killer miniaturist. There are a lot of intriguing moment when she is witnessing the events on earth from the “in-between” as her family turned their beloved house as a tomb of a grief. As she is around the clock, will she be able to find the lights in her darkest place? The movie itself was partially based on a true story. While the novel classifies itself as fiction but actually it roots lie in reality. Eventhough the story and its message were generally bland and cloying sentimentality which led to an upsetting experience, the visual effects for the “in-between” was incredibly eye-catching. The soundtrack is remarkably touching as it brings imaginary, dreamy, surreal and otherworldly feelings with mixed-emotion. I would recommend this movie, The Lovely Bones especially for supernatural thriller lovers out there. I’m sure the unpredictable plot will caught you off guard at the very end.

Hacksaw Ridge Biographical war drama film, 2016 I like the casting of the film. They are correct and spot on for choosing Andrew Garfield as Desmond Doss to portray his Heroism and bravery, because I think It is suitable for Andrew, as compared to his past roles playing Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man. When I first saw It, I thought It was so amazing and I was blown away. It Is inspiring to all.Even the fact that it was based on a true story is truly incredible. I cried pretty much throughout the entirety of this film, it got to the point where I was shaking during the war scenes. seriously such a fantastic moving film. It changes my perspective on war greatly. I give "Hacksaw Ridge" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ and I definitely recommend everyone to go watch this Movie. Claudio ( 17 years old, Manado)

The actors acting those movies are very professional, beautiful and handsome. By the way, I read all books of these stories. It's amazing and super interesting. During reading you dive into that atmosphere and imaging like you are one of the character. This feeling is wonderful and I recommend everyone to read these books. Enjoy it! See you around!)

Alice in Wonderland Fantasy, Adventure; 2010 Alice Kingsleigh was a young girl when she first visited the Underworld. Now she is 19 years old but everything she saw before, lives in her dreams as nightmares. Her life takes a turn for the unexpected when she recognises a peculiar white rabbit running through the shrubs the day she was getting proposed, and decides to chase it. Suddenly she falls inside a hole under a tree that takes her directly to Wonderland. Now she has to find out what her true faith is. Personally, I love this film because I was used to watch it everyday in my childhood. the actors make a great performance in their roles such as Johnny Depp as the Mad Hutter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Res Queen and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. I highly recommend this film. I give Alice in Wonderland five stars

Little Women Classic 2019 In 1860s New England town, Jo, Jo's three sisters, and their mother were living in Massachusetts. Their father went and joined the war. Although they were not rich, they still had a warm and sweet life together. Day by day, with happiness, sadness, anger, naughty children became young ladies. They learned a lot through time pass, and tried their best to reach their goal. My favorite character is Jo March, at first, she doesn't look like a young lady, you'll feel the things she has done are 'boyish', and also you might feel that she is unkind. But when you continue to read the book, you'll find out she is kind and brave. The movie takes you through whole book by using another way to tell the story. I'll give Little Women five starts, go and watch it! I also recommend you read the book too.

My favourite movie is '3metres sobre el cel'. It is a dramatic film and it was made in 2010 after the book. This story is about a couple and their problems, they have a lot of problems with their families. She is a rich girl and her parents dindn't want that she was the girlfriend of this boy. In my opinion this film is recomended for young people and women but not for men because is a film of love and is drama, so a lot of men prefer action films.
