Captain America: Civil War (Hollywood, 2016)


The movie that introduced Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is also a memorable throw down between superheroes.

Captain America and Iron Man go head to head as they end up with clashing beliefs on how to move forward with the Avengers. The spectacular action set piece in the airport alone is worth the price of admission.

Aliens (Hollywood, 1986)

The movie then becomes a thrilling story of survival where humans go against a hostile breed of alien creatures. This film is a true sci-fi classic.

Mulan (Hollywood, 2020)

 

A disappointing big budget film about a Chinese girl who disguises herself as a male soldier to save her father.

Liu Yifei brings some star power to the role but the movie is too boring to make her shine. The film's production value and soundtrack were at least decent.

Parasite (Korea, 2019)



Director
Bong Joon-ho crafts a mesmerizing tale of a family of con artists moving up in the world by planting themselves into a rich household.

This movie is one of South Korea's highest grossing films. It will also be remembered for making history as the first Korean film to win Best Original Screenplay, Best International Feature Film, Best Director, and Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

Project Gutenberg (Hong Kong, 2018)

 


A very slick action crime film that follows a gang of counterfeit artists as they try to produce the ultimate US banknote.

The film has very entertaining action scenes reminiscent of a John Woo movie and the twist in the end is very clever.
