Ip Man 3 (2016)

Directed, like Ip Man (2008) and Ip Man 2 (2010), by Wilson Yip, the new Ip Man 3 feels a little less substantial; set in 1959, it seems as if less attention has been paid to period detail and to events of historical importance, i.e. WWII. Certainly the costumes look appropriate, with some of the thugs wearing Converse Chuck Taylors, but it doesn't look like the costume department went crazy. read more...

Batman (1989)

At age 28, boy genius Tim Burton revived the comic book genre with this summer blockbuster. Stepping away from the campy 1960s "Batman" television series, and heavily inspired by Frank Miller's brilliant 1986 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, Burton brings back film noir elements to the new Batman, elevating it to a dark, demented opera. The groundbreaking production design by Anton Furst alone is enough to tingle the optic nerve. read more...

Ip Man 2 (2010)

It's of course a sequel, and "Ip Man" is simply the name of the main character, based on a real-life figure (he's not a superhero). I did not see the original, but it's easy enough to get by without. In the first film, he fought against the Japanese, who occupied Hong Kong during the 1940s. In this film, the war is over and he returns to Hong Kong to open a martial arts school. He hopes to teach Wing Chun, which -- according to the movie -- emphasizes simultaneous striking and self-defense. He suffers through some lean times before finally winning several students, led by the hot-headed Leung (Huang Xiaoming). read more...

Hero (2002)

The most expensive and highest grossing film in Chinese history, Zhang Yimou's Hero went on to snag one of 2002's Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Film. Unfortunately, the notorious Miramax snapped it up and then promptly sat on it for two years, as if somehow ashamed of their newest acquisition. Indeed, naysayers quickly dismissed the film as a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon knockoff. read more...
