討論/CRACKER BARREL : SPURS VS THUNDER 2016 WESTERN SEMIS. GAME 2

From Game #2.

1) This is gonna be a physical series. Can the winner get to the ‘chip?

2) Dion Waiters, surpisingly effective on Kawhi.

3) Spurs can play better than Game #2

4) LaMarcus and Ibaka going to war and I like it! Of course LaMarcus!

5) Captain Adams is a force to reckon.

6) The basketball gods righted the abomination that was the Dion Waiters non call immediately didn’t they?

7) Can Kawhi handle this much? Guarding Russell, generating offense against Robertson/Waiters?

8) Spurs need to see more Boris Diaw this series to win.

9) Durant expending minimum energy is scary the longer this takes.

10) LaMarcus is on fire! 41! Whooo.

討論/CRACKER BARREL : EVEREST THE MOVIE REVIEW

Written by : Essy Chiu

跟據1996年珠穆朗瑪峰登山意外拍攝而成的《絕命海拔》(Everest),是人類追逐夢想的終極示範。1996年,兩隊探險隊於5月10同時攀登這個全世界最高的山峰,可惜遇上風暴,最後釀成12死的悲劇。這個經過20年仍未叫人忘卻的意外,曾被拍成紀錄片,而於去年年尾上映的這個電影版,星光褶褶的卡士,則似是向這幾位勇敢的登山戰士的致敬之作。但不知是否卡士太過強勁,背景太宏偉,反而令電影失去重心,有點“兩頭不到岸”的感覺。眾星(因為太多)沒有太大空間發揮,而導演顧得將焦點放在眾星上時,又顧不得讓觀眾欣賞這座“聖山”。這些都是荷里活這類型勵志電影的通病吧,有太多要說,太少時間表達。但老實說,這麼強大的鎮容,再加上故事尚算流暢,《絕命海拔》也是一個用來消磨時間的不俗選擇。

看完《絕命海拔》後,我覺得電影說的雖然是人類不顧一切追遂夢想的偉大情操,但我覺得更偉大的是這些生命戰士的另一半。Keira Knightley演的是其中一個探險隊的首領Rob Hall的老婆Jan Hall,十月懷胎了老公還是不顧一切的去登山,最後老公被困山上,在生命走到盡頭時只能打通一個電話給老婆告別。難為老婆腹大便便淚流滿面,看得叫人特別心酸。這與最近另一部同樣以真人真事改篇、同樣是說人類追隨夢想的故事《The Walk》同出一轍。這些勇敢的男人任性地、不顧後果地去做自己想做的事情,作為女朋友或老婆,除了支持 (是真心嗎?) 還可以做什麼?唯有不斷祈禱囉。

What do we know about movie reviews? Diddley squat. We’re not even sure were watching the proper editions because we’re in China, motherland of the pirated movie. Aiyai matey! First up? Everest, the movie, of Everest, the mountain. This is your typical big Hollywood movie, with an ensemble cast of A-grade acting chops grouped together. Its greedy in terms of ambition, and lacking in stunning scenery for its title character, Everest. It tries to say too much and the cast a waste of too many people not enough screen time. Do you.

討論/CRACKER BARREL : D’ANGELO GRAMMY WINS 2016

For all the noise that Kendrick made for what he won and what he didn’t, seemed that D’Angelo kinda got lost in all the noise. Much respect to D, and the Vanguard for that matter, for their Grammy wins, Best R&B Song, and Best R&B Album. Heartbeat props!
