I hope you guys don't mind that I start the thread for August, since I have the last three movies from Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival to report. What a Man Wants https://letterboxd.com/film/what-a-man-wants/ Korean comedy about two brothers-in-law and their adulterous endeavours. The movie meanders for about half its runtime before finally getting all the pieces in place for some very funny situations. If I had been watching at home, I would have probably given up after less than 30 minutes, but in the end I was glad I stayed. Big Brother https://letterboxd.com/film/big-brother-2018/ Hong Kong high school drama with the old trope of a teacher (played by superstar Donnie Yen) who changes the lives of several of his troubled students. Very simplistic and contrived screenplay that feels like it was written by a not particularly talented 14-year old. If you absolutely cannot miss any Donnie Yen movie, then by all means go for it. Otherwise, don't bother. The Fortress https://letterboxd.com/film/the-fortress-2017/ Korean historical epic about a siege of a mountain top fortress where the king has taken refuge from Chinese invaders. Great production values, as is to be expected from a Korean blockbuster, but it didn't quite resonate with me - maybe because it dedicates too much time to endless discussions between the king and his ministers and military advisors.
