Alongside fellow competitors Roper and Williams, Lee faces formidable opponents and navigates the treacherous island to expose and thwart Han's criminal empire. "Enter the Dragon" is celebrated for its groundbreaking martial arts choreography, Lee's charismatic performance, and its pivotal role in popularizing martial arts cinema globally.

Fast X

Fast X

"Fast X" is the supposed final installment in one of the longest and most successful film franchises in history. The cast is insane, filled with action stars and Oscar winners.  The tenth film of the Fast and Furious Saga is now entering its third decade with the same core cast and characters as its inception. Throughout numerous missions and against seemingly insurmountable odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have consistently outwitted, outmaneuvered, and outdriven every adversary in their path. Now, they confront their most formidable foe yet: an ominous threat emerging from the shadows of the past, driven by a quest for blood revenge, intent on shattering the Toretto family and obliterating everything and everyone Dom holds dear.

In the aftermath of their takedown of Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes in 2011's Fast Five, little did Dom and his crew know that Reyes' son, Dante (Jason Momoa), witnessed the event and has spent the last 12 years meticulously plotting to exact the ultimate revenge on Dom. Dante's scheme will disperse Dom's family across the globe, forging new alliances and resurrecting old adversaries. However, the game changes entirely when Dom learns that Dante's primary target is none other than his own 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo Perry, Black-ish). Helmed by director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk), Fast X features a returning ensemble cast, including Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena, and Scott Eastwood. The star-studded lineup also includes Oscar® winners Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron.

This is one gritty Vietnamese revenge thriller! A spinoff to the movie “Furie,” "Furies," originally titled "Thanh Soi," shifts its focus away from Thanh, positioning her as a co-lead alongside the true star of the film, Bi (Dong Anh Quynh), an orphan fueled by righteous anger. Bi confronts childhood trauma by taking on a group of sadistic human traffickers with a trio of fellow vigilantes, including Thanh (played by Toc Tien), Hong (Rima Thanh Vy), and their leader, Jacqueline (Ngo Thanh Van). 

In a disquieting opening scene, a young Bi (Thuy Linh) loses her mother, a prostitute, in a violent incident. Fifteen years later, Bi is rescued and adopted by Jacqueline and her two pupils, Hong and Thanh. All four women share a bond forged by experiences of sexual assault, and the film commendably addresses this intense connection in several scenes. The narrative explores Bi's volatile fight-or-flight response triggered by memories of her mother, showcasing her uncontrollable punches. The film maintains a considerable dark undertone, not only through its antagonists but also in the intense physical confrontations between the main characters, emphasizing a gritty, pulpy atmosphere..
