Captain Phillips: 7.5/10
after the above nuisance, this was a nice change, so thanks for the recommendation. i would give it a 7/10 – wasn't a fan of the score and some plot elements were rather predictable –, but it had enough complexity and good characters to keep me interested.Glad to see A Sun getting a Netflix release. Somehow I believe this is a good thing for the foreign films to get the exposure they deserve.
9/10 (saw it at hkaff last year)
yes. i liked it a lot, was in my top 10 of the year. very emotional and engaging. although i didn't think it looked as good as people said. in fact i thought it was very digital looking.
