Movies We Watch

Movie: IP Man I

This is the story about martial arts instructor Ip Man who's fighting style is Wing Chun. In the first IP Man I movie version about his life, he lives a frugal life yet he doesn't own a school but everyone around him respects him and challenges him to a dual winning every time, until China is invaded by the Japanese during World Word II. Everyones' life changes including his and his family. The martial arts fight in this movie is amazing!!

We give it 5 stars!

Movie: IP Man II

You guessed it! as soon as we found out there was part two we streamed it and watch it with John's family and this sequel did not disappoint! This sequel follows the first movie, where Ip Man has decided to teach Wing Chun to provide for his family. The fighting scenes are amazing, I would say better than the Matrix. Here we have English colonization in Hong Kong and instead of bowing to his rivals' demands he pushes to open his school one way or the other.

FACT: This is a true life story about Ip Man, he's Bruce Lee's teacher!

We give it 5 stars!!

We love Neflix streaming!!!!!

What does one do after watching Wing Chun fighting style!? People are inspired! watch and see!

Movie: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

To do something special for John's birthday and considering our tight budget, we went to the movies this past Monday night! It was so great to get out of the house just the two of us!

So, the last of the Transformers movie they take you back to 1969 moon landing with Neil Armstrong and Apollo 11 and they discover a Transformer spaceship, and NASA decides to hide it from everyone until flash forward to the present day...2011, the Decepticons, who never die, are ready to get even with the Autobots (same story, different day) and bring their planet to our planet earth.

This movie has great fighting scene against the Decepticons and Autobots and very noisy fighting. Not for kids! Some scenes are too sexual for kids to watch unless you are a irresponsible parent who doesn't care what your kid watches in front of you! It doesn't make sense why Hollywood needs to show this when it is all about the Transformers. John said that the cartoon version is way better because they don't show Sam feeling up a woman.

We give 3 1/2 stars.
