(WK 3) Little Women - $70,000 (1,000) - Total: $4,500,000 Entering the Lunar New Year holiday, Hong Kong will see 6 new wide releases and 1 semi-wide release which is a Japanese anime. The Grand Grandmaster is expected to rule the box office of this period, expecting a HK$40 million-plus finish. The movie is starred, written and directed by stand-up comedian Dayo Wong, who is often seen as making fun of the one-party ruled China in some of his standup performances. In a week-old video to defuse allegations that his movie was a co-production, Dayo Wong claimed he self-financed the movie to make it purely HK and not succumb to Chinese rules and censorship. This seemed to have strengthened the support of his fans for the movie. With the outbreak of coronavirus looming in central China, Hong Kong, located south of mainland China, is bracing for the worst to come. The city has seen 5 confirmed infected cases so far. Some large public festive events have been cancelled. Cinemas are largely unaffected for now. Opening Jan 23 1. The Grand Grandmaster (HK) - comedy starring, written and directed by stand-up comedian Dayo Wong 2. Enter the Fat Dragon (HK) - action comedy starring Donnie Yen and many Japanese actors 3. Dolittle (US) 4. Spies in Disguise (US) 5. Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion The Movie (Japan) Opening Jan 25 1. All's Well, Ends Well 2020 (HK) - comedy adopting the formula of the same-titled 1992 classic ensemble comedy 2. You Are the One (HK) - rom-com

  4. The Futurist sounds like the man in the basement worshipping the house and the family. I see many similarities between Parasite and Joker+Us. All three films have the rich going on with their own lives and being oblivious to their surroundings and society as a whole. But Parasite goes a lot deeper than the other two thematically and nails the sociological and psychological dynamics.

  6. The headline: "Hollywood elitist left embraces violent and irresponsible Joker"
  7. Blaming the "radical" left critics for Joker's bad press is a dishonest, overblown narrative. The Guardian (left-leaning) and Jacobin (social democratic) have quite a few articles heaping praises on the film and Joaquin Phoenix's performance. Joker review – an ace turn from Joaquin Phoenix https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/oct/06/joker-review-joaquin-phoenix-ace-turn 'Incel' violence is horrific, but Joker is complex, and doesn't take sides https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/sep/02/incel-violence-joker-rightwing-film-joaquin-phoenix Joker isn’t an ode to the far right – it’s a warning against austerity https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/oct/10/joker-far-right-warning-austerity It’s Morning in Joker’s America https://jacobinmag.com/2019/10/joker-reagan-1981-martin-scorsese-king-comedy The Joker Melodrama https://jacobinmag.com/2019/10/joker-melodrama-joaquin-phoenix-todd-phillips-review Joker and the Long History of Movie Moral Panics https://jacobinmag.com/2019/09/joker-and-the-long-history-of-movie-moral-panics The Joker controversy stemmed from concerns that the film might inspire similar violence (Aurora Theaters shooting) or it was too grim and too sympathetic to incels. Most of the critics do not come from a left-wing or right-wing perspective on this movie. Just look at The Wall Street Journal and Entertainment Weekly for example. ‘Joker’ Review: The Laugh’s on Us https://www.wsj.com/articles/joker-review-the-laughs-on-us-11570131914 Joaquin Phoenix's captivating, unsettling Joker is no laughing matter https://ew.com/movie-reviews/2019/09/10/joker-review/ Blaming "radical" left media sounds like a narrative propagated by the right politicking for their candidate. I should add even the only film writer critical of Joker at The Guardian admits he is in the sceptical minority: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jan/07/colossally-overrated-joker-beneficiary-of-bafta-awards-groupthink

  9. Filming started January 7. The first one was fun. Some of the escape room designs (esp. the upside down billiard room) were quite creative.
  10. As a family film and a non-sequel, Dolittle will see more walk-ins. But that Jumanji will still do around $10 million on the 4-day MLK weekend is not good news for Dolittle.
  11. This looks good and atmospheric, but are the kids too creepy for general audience?
