Oh, the feelings...
Oh, the feelings...
I just watched Burn witch burn... from 1962, or Night of the Eagle (as was initialy shot as) an Awesome horror classic..
With an amazing intro. Literaly casting a spell on the audience from the get go.
Awesome film... i enjoyed it very much, probably among the most entertaining horror, supernatural thriller films in my personal list of the genre.

The Great Wall - It was an experiment to see if a Chinese film production can incorporate Western actors and score big with Western audiences, because it certainly felt experimental, as Chinese stage effects were emphasized over actual directing, as the Chinese actors seemed to fall into default stereotypes, while the Western ones stood around blank faced.
They had enough money to make the backdrop and costumes mostly eye candy, of which the female lead certainly qualified, because it's basically Aliens versus the Middle Kingdom.
Did the experiment succeed? I think they need to have Chinese directors that have spent about five or ten years immersed in Western productions to mesh the two cinema experiences seamlessly together; also, it's fantastical and incredulous, in the sense that if anyone came looking for black powder, presumably gunpowder, they'd want the formula, not the actual item outside samples.
Watch it for the special effects.
Eats, shoots, and leaves.
Based on red dragon Novel etc.... But with Brian Cox as Hannibal lecter.....
Glorious, in itself on that account alone but its a great criminal Thriller, with hypnotic soudtrack, and photography. And Probably the definitive Hannibal Lecter film.
The Great Cox in its younger days... unsettling..... "Would you like to leave me your home phone number?"

^In contrast, the "Red Dragon" film was utter garbage. Only Fiennes managed to save himself in that complete train-wreck
