~Introducing pop culture from around the world~

It's Double Holiday week! Happy 5,068th birthday to China... and happy mooncake [not] eating. Everyone be sure to look up at the big full moon tonight and dream about your beloved.

Now on to the list of movies for the month. Did anybody see all 13 from September? We didn't. There was just too many.

For this loveliest of Octobers, we're back down to an easy six, including ones from Thailand and Belgium, a few random ones you've never heard of, and then Kingsman 2. They'd better not censor it too much. Oh wait, they will. 😓

Our one cartoon for the month comes from Belgium & France... trailer is in English, but expect parts of this movie to be in French. It's all about the visuals anyways, right? The kids should still enjoy it.

This one looks interesting. It's a 5-part multinational film revolving around the concept of "time"... it was featured at the BRICS Film Festival earlier this year, which aims to spotlight emerging talent and established filmmakers from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. 

Because it's partly from five different countries, it will be in five different languages: Portuguese, Russian, Hindi, Mandarin, and English.

The trailer has both English and Chinese subtitles, so that's promising! Hopefully the wide theatrical release will have the same.

2017金砖国家电影合作计划“华丽之五”(Magnificent 5)在第二届金砖国家电影节发布会上正式公布细节。该计划邀请来自巴西、俄罗斯、印度、中国、南非五个“金砖国家”的五位电影导演,分别以“时间去哪儿了”为主题拍摄一部电影短片,而五部独立的短片将汇集为一部片名为《时间去哪儿了》的集锦长片。

Only a month after its US/UK release, not bad; this star-studded lineup had better not disappoint.

When the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded.

In a new adventure that tests their agents' strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that's becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy...

All we know is that if it's anything close to the original, we're gonna have a good time.

When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters.

After successfully protecting the planet for two years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving the program's malfunction before a world wide Geostorm can engulf the planet.

Yawn, if we have nothing better to do on Halloween weekend, we might go see this one. But probably not.
