      It's a pity and a perfection

      After watching "White Snake 2: The Origin of the Green Snake", I came to watch "The Origin of the White Snake".

      When I was young, I read The Legend of the White Snake, but I didn't understand the love between the two. Now that people are middle-aged, they understand that love is not only like, but also the changes they are willing to make for each other.

      You are a demon, it doesn't matter, I would rather not be a human, but also be a demon with you; even if I sacrifice my life,...

      After watching "White Snake: Origin", I want to cry for no reason

      At the end of the movie, when Xu Xian and Bai Suzhen met at Broken Bridge, the familiar "Bai Suzhen under Qingcheng Mountain" sounded in their ears.

      At this time, everyone in the movie hall made a "wow" sound, and the memories of chasing dramas when I was a child also came in like a surging tide, which really made people want to cry.

      What are the easter eggs and hard-to-find details in "White Snake: Origin"?

      Easter eggs: bits and pieces after the dog spit out human words, lanterns that run away, details of entering Baoqingfang

      Details: The tears of the Buddha statue, the movements and expressions of the little demon in Baoqingfang, Xiaobai undressing himself, the little Taoist priest's crown, Xu Xuan's secret location,

      The bowl and baby of the beggar in Yongzhou City

      Don't sigh, and continue to the front


      The big reason that prompted me to watch White Snake before the end of the movie was its nearly 100% positive reviews. Both film critics and bloggers, and friends around me, all gave this film high praise to varying degrees. Logically speaking, being able to achieve such a publicity effect is also a major success of the film "White Snake: The Origin" itself. After all, apart from buying hot searches and navy, the most convincing ones are the...

      can you shut up?

      I don’t know when it started, but the greatest joy for many people to watch a movie is not the movie itself, but after watching it, they complain and pretend to understand, so that people think that these people are the so-called “film critic experts” ! No matter what you have or not, there are a lot of your own truths, no matter what you see or not, you have one by one, Dad just wants to tell you, dare not be so boring, can you be a little more brainless, I thought I was something, the...

      The prequel of Xinxin Bai Niangzi, in front of it, the boatman's "Crossing Love" with a song "Origin" was used to eliminate the old and establish a new one, showing the intention of innovation. However, the new story is very weak, with abrupt emotions and blunt turns. The change of the national teacher's bento and the master are very abrupt, and the ending is a larger-than-life prototype battle mode. Probably only the last minute when she returns to Bai Suzhen under Qingcheng Mountain will look...

      With this quality, isn't it the standard of Netflix? Various salute elements make it have a strong sense of big data, the industrial level is very good, but the story is empty. Compared with last year's "Curse of the Wind", its advantage is that there are no directional errors in the play, and the disadvantage is that the layering of the story is too weak, and the director's ability to deal with action scenes is also very ambitious and poor. The two directors still wanted to make action scenes,...

    As a domestic animated film telling oriental stories, "White Snake" visually presents a beautiful and moving oriental feast to the audience. Ink painting, boating, landscapes, towers, umbrellas, hairpins, clothes plackets, and the walking gestures of characters are all expressions of Chinese style. (Review of Yanzhao Evening News) 
    "White Snake" is creative at the story level; the animation characters are liked and accepted by the...
