Why Must Watch: I've watched its trailer and YES, I believe, this movie should be watched. ;)

Update: Watched. Errr... The CGI-ed scenes were great. BUT the storyline is distorting the genuine teachings from the Bible. So, I don't like this movie, truthfully speaking. In fact, I was quite disappointed.

Steelhead decides to stay on in Japan and to obtain citizenship, he agrees to work for Eguchi as a killer. Soon, Steelhead gets used to the power and finds himself embroiled so deeply in the ways of the underworld that there is no turning back.....
Why Must Watch: Its trailer is very impressive. Also, the cast - Hong Kong, China, Japanese. What more is there to ask?

Update: Watched! It's good NOT to see Jackie Chan fighting crazy choreographed action sequences. It's good to see him acting as a normal person. :)

When their efforts to acquire powerful cannon from a Dutch weapon master turned disastrous with the cannon fell into the pirates' possession, the three sisters found their existence more vulnerable than ever.
Why Must Watch: Epic war movies with action and fantasy as core elements are always awesome to watch. :)

Coming Soon (TH)
Release Date: 16 April 2009 @ GSC
Cast: Chantavit Dhanasevi, Vorakan Rojchanawat
Synopsis: What scenes in a horror film scares you the most? When a ghost appears unexpectedly? When the main character does not see the ghost behind him? When at the very end you find out that the main character was actually a ghost all along? None of these can be compared to the feeling of arriving home alone and being struck by deja vu that you are reenacting the very same scenes in the horror movie you just watched.....
Why Must Watch: Another collection to my favorite movie genre!

Update: Watched! Errr..... You shall meet an oh-not-so-friendly ghost that shouts, "You like to see me die?" and ends up gouging people's eyes out. Oh well...

Cast: Elizabeth Banks, Arielle Kebbel, David Strathairn, Emily Browning
Synopsis: Anna and Alex Rydell return home after a stint in a mental hospital, though their recovery is jeopardized thanks to their cruel stepmother, aloof father, and the presence of a ghost in their home.
Why Must Watch: It's a remake of Korea's "The Tale of Two Sisters", a very high quality horror/psychological thriller.

Update: Watched! Yes, this remake is quite good, shot within 1.5 hours, it didn't drag on like the Korean version. So, you won't get bored too easily.
