From "Jack the Giant Catcher" to a rant about sci-fi films

On March 25th, my city just released the film. Although I am not very interested in Western fantasy films, I watched it as an attempt.
As a dark fairy tale movie (advertising slogan) considered by the media, I think it can score 80 points in terms of sound effects and special effects, but as a movie, it is still a typical fairy tale movie where heroes save beauty: The Farmer and The hero saved the beauty when the princess met for the first time; the two people with different identities had a good impression of each other, the fiancé with a difficult appearance and ulterior motives, the farmer counterattacked in an emergency, and finally the farmer and the princess lived a happy and happy life. Everything is so old-fashioned, and everything is so familiar. Thinking of DreamWorks' Shrek, I feel that the flipped fairy tale may be more interesting. Of course, who said that such a diaosi incident would not happen, look at the recent Wang Dazhi With Dong Jie, anything is possible!
In recent Hollywood, a lot of creativity and inspiration have been lacking, and they can only be recreated from comics and fairy tales. There are few new scripts and good ideas in blockbusters in recent years, from Snow White to Magic Beans, from Spider-Man to Deformation King Kong, as well as the upcoming Adventures of Oz, etc., etc., can see the popularity of fantasy films and fantasy films, while the original old-fashioned hard science fiction films are becoming less and less, as far as I remember or leave an impression Only Inception and Prometheus are only a few, and Avatar is barely one. I think this is not only due to the success of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, but also because of the fact that there is no revolution in the development of human technology now, so , Quotations from the elderly: Science and technology are the primary productive forces, indeed it is in one sentence.
Apple's big sales and Samsung's hot sales are just the big development of mobile phones, the application of Google Glass and the exploration of Mars, maybe a new sci-fi movie can truly be developed. I still remember reading Verne's science fiction novels when I was a child, and thinking about life in twenty or thirty years. Now, at the age of thirty, I find that there are only cars and houses, and the robots of my childhood are still only in Transformers.
Think of Chinese movies, which are still playing in ancient times. The recent Journey to the West, Conquering the Demons, I can only say that it is a review and adaptation of Journey to the West, such as The Legend of the White Snake, etc. I can only say that it continues the previous popularity or It is driven by commercial interests. Why can't Chinese filmmakers be able to film such myths as Jingwei reclaiming the sea and Kuafu chasing the sun? Maybe the box office can be higher if you change the characters. And the history category is not the Three Kingdoms, Chu and Han are the Qing Palace, why can't we take a picture of Chen Qingzhi? Thinking back to the time when 3,000 white horses traveled through more than half of China, there were more than 400,000 people, and the Taizu called him the first person in history; or the King of Lanling , He is too handsome, and he can only face the enemy by wearing a mask in every battle. It not only caters to female audiences, satisfies male audiences, but also popularizes Chinese history. The performance is bad, and there are ratings. Of course, if more money is invested in sci-fi films, I think it can make Chinese films go a step further. As a sci-fi fan, seeing that South Korea is making sci-fi films, I can only send a sincere greeting to the Chinese directors. !

    The previous storyline was too slow. Going for 10,000, I didn't expect him to have soy sauce and no acting skills. . . The beanstalk is fake enough, and 3D doesn't seem necessary. The turning point near the end is also very heavy. Anyway, I chose this one after watching it. . . There is no need to go to the cinema. ps has been entangled in whether the male villain is the perverted man in "Sex Addiction Diary".

    Always have a childlike innocence. There is no resistance to calls. The end is too fast and a little weak.

  • Isabelle: Is this your farm?

    Jack: Yes. No. Sort of. My uncle and I are tenant partners. We just work the lands.

    Isabelle: And, uh, these books?

    Jack: Yeah, they... they're mine.

    Isabelle: It's unusual for a farm boy.

    Jack: Judging by the cover, are we?

    Isabelle: What do you like reading?

    Jack: I like a good adventure.

    Isabelle: In books or in life?

    Jack: Until I can find a way to get off this farm, I have to settle for books.

    Isabelle: And, uh, that mark on your face, was that an adventure?

    Jack: Um, I got in a fight today. At the market.

    Isabelle: What about?

    Jack: I was defending the honor of the princess.

    Isabelle: Princess? Really? You sure you didn't read that in one of your books? How did you know it was the princess?

    Jack: I didn't. I just saw she needed help. It wasn't until the guardians showed up that I realized who she was. Anyway, it happened really fast. I wouldn't blame her if she didn't remember me. What are you running away from?

    Isabelle: Who says I'm running away from anything? Maybe I'm running toward something. Just looking for an adventure of my own.

    Jack: Well, so far you've run toward the light on my porch... Your Highness.

  • Isabelle: You must think I'm very silly.

    Jack: No. I just wish that... Well, earlier, at the market...

    Isabelle: Thank you... for defending my honor, Jack.

    Jack: Anytime. Here, I'll take your coat. And until you find your own adventure...

    Isabelle: [receives a book from Jack] "The Giants of Gantua."

    Jack: My father used to read that to me.

    Isabelle: That was always my mother's job.

    Jack: I hope you find what you're looking for, Your Highness.

    Isabelle: Call me Isabelle.

    Jack: Isabelle.
