    this was quite good. not as "devastating" as i expected; quite a bit warmer.

    Well, hot damn this was great. This dealt with grief in a way I've never seen before and it was beautiful, funny, sad and heartwarming. The clash of cultures was my favorite little subplot and added so much nuisance to the whole story.

    The speech her uncle gave at the wedding had me tearing up from laughter and sadness. Same with Hao Hao's drunk crying. anything to do with Hao Hao and his fake bride was hilarious really. And that shot of the car pulling away was just killed me. The whole movie I felt like Nai Nai had figured out what was going on and that shot sealed it for me.

    But yeah, that's when I started sobbing, just like, full on ugly cry

    spoilers are literally meaningless.

    I thought the movie hit wide release this past weekend? I figured spoilers are open at this point. Also, what I posted is more of a theory than something that shot actually states.

    Anyone opening the thread at this point should have either seen it or know that many of us have, we’re not putting a ban on discussion until it comes out on DVD lmao

    not to rehash the same old argument, but I don't see how using spoiler tags is "putting a ban on discussion"

    I just can’t see why anybody would go into a thread for something that is out and expect people not to be talking openly about it

    People will still not have seen this a year from now, should we spoiler tag on their behalf? I get the concept but it’s not unreasonable to think that people that don’t want something spoiled could just gloss over one thread on a message board and go about their day

    Not to be insensitive, but I’ve never opened a thread for a show or movie and expected everyone to cater to me by doing all of their conversation in black bars because I haven’t seen it yet. Just pop in once you have! If you want to know more about the work, go read some spoiler free reviews and jump in once you’ve had the chance to see it

    it’s also one of the least plot-driven movies in recent memory. there’s no “twist.” cmon lol.

    There really isn't any twist. Anything suggesting is purely speculative. It's certainly not anything that crossed my mind when watching it.

    After seeing this, the Lang/Jenkins courtship makes perfect sense. Wonder if they watched In The Mood For Love together yet?
     
  19. Loved this so much
