It was with great anticipation that I went to see Nguyen Khac Huy's first feature Duong dua (The Race), the next big action flick after Charlie Nguyen's abortive Bui doi Cho Lon, which has been banned for good by the censors. I had read good things about it from critics. They said the movie, whose cast and crew are all debutants - it is famous actress Hong Anh's first movie as a producer, Australian-educated director Nguyen Khac Huy's first feature film, and famous rock singer Pham Anh Khoa's first leading role, among others - is fast-paced, thrilling, and surprisingly good. I was disappointed; it wasn't a good movie. It was incoherent, angry, fast-paced nonsense. There were lots of vague references to what may be real social issues: runners' angst against their coaches and footballers, lack of appreciation for their sport and even the difficulty of the sport itself (what profession in the world is not difficult?!), gambling, human organ trade, rampant prostitution, traffic police … [Read more...] about Let’s not just go to the movies, let’s make them

VietNamNet Bridge - Almost one week after the second Ha Noi international film festival, movie lovers in Ha Noi have already stopped talking about it. The new Vietnamese feature films and short films that competed at the festival all seem to have been forgotten, except for Thien Menh Anh Hung (Blood Letter), which won the jury prize for feature film. Blood Letter, Viet Nam's first martial arts-action-fantasy in the style of kiem hiep (sword fighter adventures), earned acclaim from the jury for its professional appearance. Jan Schutte, president of the jury, also noted it was one of the most expensive Vietnamese films ever made, with a budget of VND25 billion (US$1,300,000). … [Read more...] about Vietnam’s movie industry needs more time to develop

The iPhone 5 is the iPhone we've wanted since 2010, adding long-overdue upgrades like a larger screen and faster 4G LTE in a razor-sharp new design. The good: The iPhone 5 adds everything we wanted in the iPhone 4S: 4G LTE, a longer, larger screen, free turn-by-turn navigation, and a faster A6 processor. Plus, its top-to-bottom redesign is sharp, slim, and feather-light. The bad: Apple Maps feels unfinished and buggy; Sprint and Verizon models can't use voice and data simultaneously. The smaller connector renders current accessories unusable without an adapter. There's no NFC, and the screen size pales in comparison to jumbo Android models. The bottom line: The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe. I've had the chance to use the iPhone 5 for nearly a week, and have been using … [Read more...] about iPhone 5 full review: Finally, the iPhone we’ve always wanted
