Minority Report Blu-ray
HK$ 83.00
Nzgameshop
Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play. The science-fiction thriller Minority Report, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, is based on a short story by renowned writer Philip K. Dick. In the year 2054, in Washington, D.c., murder has been eliminated thanks to Precrime, a program that uses the visions of three psychics, called Pre-Cogs (an abbreviation for precognitive thinkers), to arrest and imprison would-be murderers before they have a chance to kill. Tom Cruise plays John Anderton, a Precrime enforcer who believes in the system for his own personal reasons--years back his young son was abducted, and he has dealt with the loss by becoming a high-strung Precrime officer. The director of Precrime (Max von Sydow) is eager to take the program national, and feels threatened by an ambitious federal agent (Colin Farrell) who is bent on finding a flaw in the system. When Anderton finds himself accused of the future murder of a man he's never met, his faith in Precrime is instantly shaken. He goes on the run, and is trailed by the relentless Precrime police. In the tradition of Blade Runner (also based on a Dick story), Minority Report is a dark, brooding vision of the future. Spielberg expertly mixes thrilling chase and suspense sequences (the best of which involves Anderton being pursued by eye-scanning mechanical spiders) and stunning special effects with a challenging look at society's willingness to sacrifice privacy and the notion of free will for convenience and security. Minority Report is a thought-provoking and exciting film that ranks with Spielberg's best. Special Features The Future According to Steven Spielberg (Hd) Inside The World of Precrime (Hd) Phillip K.

Then a young boy is brought into the hospital, with the same symptoms as Terry … As the summer temperatures soar, the hysteria is fuelled by the finding of a torso floating in the River Boyne, an African woman killed for ritual purposes. Meanwhile, someone is making it dangerously clear to Illaun that they want that statue … Dive into The Lazarus Bell, another heart-stopping macabre thriller from internationally bestselling author Patrick Dunne.

Martin Scorseses 'Shutter Island'
HK$ 118.00 HK$ 124.00
Kobo
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 2,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Institut für deutsche Philologie), Veranstaltung: Proseminar Körper und Seele, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Realität, Fiktion und Wahn - Wahrheit oder Lüge. Der schmale Grat zwischen diesen Aspekten wird in Martin Scorseses Film Shutter Island in einer überaus komplexen und vielschichtigen Handlung realisiert. Wie kann man eine fingierte Realität von einer realen Fiktion unterscheiden? Der schmale Grat zwischen diesen Themen liegt darin, dass in Shutter Island die Grenzen zwischen Realität, Fiktion, Wahn, Wahrheit oder gar Lüge gänzlich verschwimmen. Komplettiert wird diese Handlung durch den besonderen Kontext der Isolation, der sowohl in dem Kontext des Schauplatzes einer abgelegenen Insel als auch im Zusammenhang mit dem Seelenleben des Protagonisten verwirklicht wird. In der Romanverfilmung Shutter Island erhält der Zuschauer einen Einblick in das durch Traumata bestimmte Leben des alkoholkranken Protagonisten Teddy Daniels. Die Traumata des Protagonisten haben zweierlei Ursachen: die Erlebnisse aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg und der Tod seiner Ehefrau Dolores. Der Film selbst lässt ich mehrere narrative Fragmente unterteilen, die erst am Ende puzzleartig zur Biografie des Protagonisten zusammengefügt werden und somit ein Gesamtkonstrukt ergeben. So gibt es einerseits das erlebte Jetzt des Protagonisten, dessen Vergangenheit sowie andererseits die Geschichte der Nebenfiguren, u.a. die der flüchtigen Patientin Rachel Solando aus der Klinik. In den folgenden Ausführungen soll die narrative Komplexität des Films durch die Analyse nachstehender Themen behandelt werden: die Verbindung von Erzählen durch den Körper im Film, der Wahn als ein körperliches und seelisches Phänomen sowie das Wiedererleben von Vergangenem in umgestalteter Form. Zu diesem Zwecke werde ich auf bestimmte Sequenzen eingehen, die eine Fokussierung auf den Körper au

A fourteen-year-old girl frantically runs for her life through a desolate and brutally cold Canadian boreal forest. She has just barely escaped the camp and the men who stole her from her family across the ocean, men who are guarding her like an animal while injecting her with something that makes her body feel sick, as if worms are crawling through her veins. She trips and falls and in that moment of silence, as a frigid wind howls through the barren trees all around her, she hears a sound - the snap of a twig. She looks up and sees him standing there, staring at her with eyes as cold as ice, a semi-automatic gun leveled at her, and a sardonic grin pasted to his lips. In this second book in the Keeno Crime Thriller series, Keeno McCole, head of the Rcmp anti-terrorism-unit and Canada's toughest crime-fighter, goes up against a human trafficking ring that is injecting young girls with a virulent nano-virus designed to increase their market-value in the sex-trade-industry.

Shaft vrs. Minority Report - Blackness and Whiteness in Hollywood Film
HK$ 112.00 HK$ 118.00
Kobo
Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1,7 (A-), University of Siegen (Anglistics), course: Delirious New York - Hollywood Film, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: At least since political and social considerations of black rights movements have found their way into Hollywood movie studios in the 1960ies, blackness in film has always been a central point of cinematographic discussion. Blaxploitation movies, for example, have been critically observed by both white and black film critics and have gained a wide range of differentiated responses. Interesting enough, whiteness in Hollywood film has mostly been disregarded by critics until the late 1990ies. Indeed 'There has recently been a recognition of the need to undertake analysis of whiteness without maintaining and intensifying the privileged position assigned to it' (Young, Lola; Fear of the Dark - Race, Gender and Sexuality in the Cinema. New York: Routledge. 1996: 32). The fact that a film has a white director or is mainly starred by white actors seems to be normality in western societies. 'White has no categorical status: it is the norm against which everything else is measured with no need of selfdefinition.' [Dyer, Richard. 'White' Screen: The Last Special Issue on Race? Volume 29, Number 4, Autumn: 44-65. 1988. Quoted in: Young (1996)]. This quote exemplifies the role that whiteness had for a long time within the western cinematic analysis system. With the changing conception of blackness in film and the change in the political discourse of the terms 'race' and 'ethnicity', it becomes obvious that whiteness indeed has a need of self-definition and ana lysis. When one really takes these points into consideration, it becomes obvious that whiteness in film can have as much effect on the viewer as blackness in film and that it should be analysed just as well in modern film criticism. In this essay I will try to give two examples of

Praise FOR THE Operator(Bruce & Bennett Mystery 2): 'Gripping from the very first scene.' Ann Cleeves, award-winning author of TV's 'Vera' and 'Shetland' novels.'Intelligent, dark and shot through with sly comedy, Valerie Laws is one of those writers who consistently satisfies.' Alex Marwood, best-selling author of The Wicked Girls'A terrific book, a very creepy, very haunting mystery tale. THE Operator does for the doctor what Jaws did for the beach. You're warned!' Phoef Sutton, writer/producer of TV's Cheers and Boston Legal, crime writerABOUT THE BOOK'Now, this Will hurt.' In the second Erica Bruce and Will Bennett mystery, a sadistic orthopaedic surgeon is bizarrely killed. Soon it appears someone's giving doctors a taste of their own medicine - murdering surgeons and mutilating the bodies to mimic the operations they perform. The media dub the killer 'The Operator'. This action-packed thriller reunites Erica Bruce, small but fierce alternative health therapist and journalist, with tall, dark, athletic Detective Inspector Will Bennett, full-on sceptic. With its medical theme it is a shade darker than THE Rotting Spot, but with lots of witty Tyneside banter from shamelessly excess-loving Stacey Reed. The setting is the North East coast of England: historic castles and rural beauty mixing with louche seafront winebars, from the lighthouse at Wydsand to the mouth of the River Tyne itself, venue of a dramatic set piece where the mighty, hostile North Sea tests Erica to the limit.

In the fall of 1948 H.l. Mencken, then at the top of his unmatchable form (he had spoken at a meeting of the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia only a little while before), suffered a stroke. He soon recovered his physical vigor, but writing was for him a thing of the past. Some months before his death, in going through some papers that he was putting in order for deposit in his beloved Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, his long-time secretary discovered these Notebooks. Mencken meant to publish them, as he makes clear in the preface, which also describes them better than I can. Suffice it to say that here is one more generous sampling of the old Mencken battling fearlessly for the freedom and dignity of the individual and for the general decencies of life and attacking all that seems fundamentally hostile to man: government, organized religion, professional philosophers, and pedagogues above all. It shows his restless and inquiring mind ranging over many of the problems that beset all of us who ever take time out to think, all in his unmatchable style, which, however much it crackles, has the supreme virtue-which Henry always found in his own great model, Thomas Henry Huxley-that of never leaving you in doubt of its meaning. Read the preface and note that this book is precisely what its title suggests; it consists of hundreds of notes-some only a few lines in length, some running to several pages, all reflecting a rigorous and exhilarating mind and personality. It may be a long time before another like him crosses our path.

After the accident, DC Cameron Stone had spent three months in intensive care before he could even recall what happened: the high speed pursuit of a vice baron through the night streets of Glasgow that had not only almost finished him but had taken the life of a teenage mother and her child. Then there'd been the message from Audrey on the back of a 'get well soon' card announcing that she had left him and taken their young son, Mark, with her. Booze, anti-depressants and therapy have all failed to enable him to resume his old job. So now Stone lives in a one-room flat in the worst part of town. He pays the rent by running errands for a private detective agency. His tasks include tracking down a teenage runaway and surveillance for a woman who thinks her husband is sleeping with her sister. He's also paid by his former colleagues, doing the work that's not quite clean enough for them to do themselves - like putting the fear of God into Jason Campbell, a newly released sex offender whose been seen hanging around the local High School in his soft-top Mercedes. Stone is having a bad week. Audrey is getting difficult about contact arrangements for Mark. She's moved into the plush home of a plastic surgeon: there's talk of marriage - and adoption for Mark. He finds his runaway in a brothel and just gets roughed-up for his trouble. There's the knife wielding kids who try to mug him on the stairs and the daubing on his front door: Burn in Hell Baby Killer. The only brightness on his horizon is his growing friendship with Liz, the sunny Irish nurse who lives on the next floor. But then petrol is poured through his letterbox and his flat ablaze. And now a stranger has turned up at the school and driven off with his son.

Stuart MacBride: Ash Henderson 2-book Crime Thriller Collection
HK$ 62.00
Kobo
Two Ash Henderson crime thrillers from the author of four consecutive No. 1 Sunday Times bestsellers. Birthdays FOR THE Dead: Detective Constable Ash Henderson has a dark secret… Five years ago his daughter, Rebecca, went missing on the eve of her thirteenth birthday. A year later the first card arrived: home-made, with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front - Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card: each one worse than the last. The tabloids call him 'The Birthday Boy'. He's been snatching girls for twelve years, always in the run-up to their thirteenth birthday, sending the families his home-made cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death. But Ash hasn't told anyone about Rebecca's birthday cards - they all think she's just run away from home - because if anyone finds out, he'll be taken off the investigation. And he's sacrificed too much to give up before his daughter's killer gets what he deserves… A Song FOR THE Dying: He's back… Eight years ago, 'The Inside Man' murdered four women and left three more in critical condition - all of them with their stomachs slit open and a plastic doll stitched inside. And then the killer just … disappeared. Ash Henderson was a Detective Inspector on the initial investigation, but a lot can change in eight years. His family has been destroyed, his career is in tatters, and one of Oldcastle's most vicious criminals is making sure he spends the rest of his life in prison. Now a nurse has turned up dead on a patch of waste ground, a plastic doll buried beneath her skin, and it looks as if Ash might finally get a shot at redemption. At earning his freedom. At revenge.

Bin Ich ein Anderer? Die Krise der männlichen Identität in 'Fight Club' und 'Shutter Island'

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 2.0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Institut für Theater, Film- und Medienwissenschaft), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 'Film als Spiegel gesellschaftlicher Zustände und Wunschvorstellungen, aber auch kollektiver Ängste: Die Deutung solcher Phänomene gelingt häufig nur mit tiefenpsychologischen Mitteln.' Shutter Island und Fight Club sind Paradebeispiele für schwierige Identitäten. Obgleich sie nicht derselben Thematik entsprechen, folgen die Filme doch ähnlichen Mustern. Der Rezipient gibt sich der Illusion der jeweiligen Identität hin, bis diese völlig überraschend enttarnt wird. Diese Arbeit möchte sich deshalb vor allem mit der Frage nach Konstruktion und Destruktion von Identität in den hier behandelten Filmen beschäftigen. Da es allerdings im Rahmen der Untersuchung nicht möglich ist, alle Aspekte der Psychoanalyse zu betrachten, bezieht sich die Arbeit auf drei entscheidende Gesichtspunkte. Im Zentrum des Interesses steht dabei der abgespaltene Teil des Ichs, welcher von dem Psychoanalytiker Otto Rank erstmals aufgegriffen und als Doppelgänger beschrieben wurde. Er geht damit auf die Doppelgängerdarstellung seines Mentors Sigmund Freud ein, welcher den Doppelgänger als Versicherung des Ichs versteht. Der Wissenschaftler Jacques Lacan führt diese Beobachtungen noch weiter aus. Es stellt sich heraus, dass sich das gespaltene Subjekt hervorragend für filmtheoretische Beobachtungen eignet. Lacan legt den Fokus dabei besonders auf das von ihm untersuchte Spiegelstadium. Aufgrund der Gedankenspiele, die die Filme mit ihren Zuschauern spielen, wird die Wendung innerhalb der filmischen Realität erst ersichtlich, nachdem die Protagonisten sich nicht mehr aus ihrem Dilemma befreien können. Doch weshalb ist dies für den Rezipienten so schwierig zu erkennen?

6 Tips for Choosing the Best Thriller Movie in Hong Kong

If you are looking for movies that will keep you on the edge of your seat, then thriller movies are your best bet. Thriller films in Hong Kong come in different types and production values. Not to mention, there is already a vast selection of thrillers which makes choosing hard. To help you out, here is a short list of recommendations to keep in mind.

Read online reviews

Most people these days rely on online reviews to determine if the movie is good. It’s best to look for ratings and reviews on third-party websites and not on the movie’s official website where fake reviews are usually encountered. Fake reviews are often very short and use a lot of superlatives. Real reviews, on the other hand, are moderate when giving out praise and sound honest when providing criticism.

Check the director and cast

Guillermo del Toro, Jeremy Saulnier, and Martin Scorsese are some of the most brilliant directors of the thriller genre today. Their movies often involve characters and scenes that keep movie-goers on the edge of their seats. Pick thriller movies that were directed by these acclaimed directors to ensure a quality movie experience. Moreover, it’s also important to check the cast. If the film includes a cast you’ve never seen or heard before, then check their previous works or read the reviews to see if the story is good.

Choose the type of thriller you want

Thriller is pretty broad and can be associated with other genres like action, horror, sci-fi, and much more. It has various types or sub-genres that will help you choose the right thriller movie for you. Action thrillers, comedy thrillers, conspiracy thrillers, and supernatural thrillers are some of the popular subgenres. If you prefer sci-fi movies and decide to watch a thriller, then choose one that features sci-fi elements. If you want intense thrillers with a horror element, then you can try zombie or vampire thriller films. If you like paranormal, then a thriller with hauntings or ghosts will suit you. Also, there are some thrillers that are based on a true story and others that are pure fiction.

Word of Mouth

If you have friends or relatives who are movie-buffs or fans of thriller films, then you can ask them for recommendations. They will be able to suggest a vast selection of good thriller titles for you to select. Also, ask them about the film’s duration, ratings, cast, director, and other essential information.

Take note of previous thriller movies you enjoyed

If you have watched thriller movies in the past and enjoyed them, then you better take note of them and the reasons why you liked watching them. If you enjoyed them because they are suspenseful, action-packed, filled with visual effects, etc., then take note of these elements and make them a standard when looking for thriller movies.

What are you in the mood for?

One of the key factors that will let you decide the right type of thriller movie is your current mood. If you feel like watching a thriller with too much blood and gore, perhaps a horror thriller is what’s suitable for you. If you are in the mood for a thriller flick yet you also want to have a good laugh, then a thriller comedy is best for you. Keep in mind these things when looking for thriller movies in Hong Kong
