Wonder Woman 1984 Pushed To Summer Of 2020

Movie Review: Born In China The Film Is Breathtaking

Breathtaking

RAMA is back

Disneynature has done it again. “Born In China” is an adorable, breathtaking adventure that goes straight for the heart. With stunning imagery and relatable stories that don’t shy away from the harsh truth of wildlife’s food chain, “Born In China” successfully informs, entertains, and inspires while blowing our minds at the same time.

Narrated by John Krasinski, this latest docu takes you to some of the most inhospitable places in China where you get to follow three animal families struggling through each day and those intimate experiences are captured in high-def nature film. A panda bear guiding her baby as she learns her way to independence. A young monkey feeling displaced by his new baby sister but he ultimately learns what it means to be a big brother. And a mother snow leopard raising two cubs on her own as a single parent fighting off hostile neighbors.

There’s actually a fourth animal or a fourth supporting character, if you will, the tibetan antelope or chiru, but unfortunately he doesn’t get as much screen time as the others which kinda does have a lot to do with how the stories are collected. You may wonder how these docus manage to craft their stories, well the answer is the animals give the crew their stories and for that to happen, it could take weeks or even months and years, in other words it takes incredible amount of patience. So one perhaps might assume that after spending a long time with the chiru, the cinematographers just didn’t find chiru’s story to be as deeply affecting as the panda’s or the monkey’s. That said, you can think of chiru as the comic relief in “Born in China,” because his quest in the mating season does get amusing.

My favorite would have to be the snow leopard simply because they’re famous for being reclusive, they’re not easy to locate. So Disneynature crews should pat themselves on the back for that achievement alone. You can’t keep your eyes off of these creatures, they’re just fascinating and remarkable. And like any of the other docus Disneynature has given us over the years, “Born in China” is also done in a way that makes you feel like you’re there deep in the jungle with the animals which is a huge testament to all the cinematographers involved who worked tirelessly to give us that sense of feeling as if we’ve been transported from our home to China. Such a beautiful country, the whole thing feels like a tourism postcard inviting you to visit this ancient land. The close-up and rare images of some of the most unforgiving environments and terrains will also help make you genuinely care.

These are stories of family, so there are quarrels but there are playful moments as well. You’ll smile and you’ll laugh but at times you also fear for their safety. It’s kind of a reflection of ourselves as human beings because we too can be protective of our loved ones, we too like to explore and learn new things, we too can get territorial, we too can become defensive especially when we’re on survival mode. We see a bit of us in the stories of these three animal families which I hope will move us into appreciating this earth we call our home like never before.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
