High and Low

The story is about how a rich man became bankrupt after he tried to save his chauffeur's son who was kidnapped mistakenly.

Liked how the moral dilemma of the rich man was presented and how the police systematically found out the kidnapper's identity through various sources! They analysed the photos to identify witnesses, went on the ground to verify the line of sight from the phone booths to the rich man's house and even found out the type of trolley running past from the recorded sound!

Iron Man 2

The story is about how Iron Man saved the world from the bad guys yet again.

Liked Scarlett Johansson's nice costume and sleek martial arts moves! I was quite impressed by how Tony Stark was able to interact with his computers using voice and gestures easily!

Despicable Me

The story is about two villains, Gru and Vector, trying to outdo each other in terms of the bad things that they do. Gru adopted three young girls in the process as he wanted to infiltrate his enemy's place.

Liked the cute Gru's minion army, the flashback to Gru's childhood and the nice bedtime stories!

Dragnet Girl

The story is about how the girlfriend of a gangster decided to get her boyfriend to change his ways after she befriended his subordinate's sister.

My impression of Tanaka Kinuyo, the actress who played the gangster's girlfriend, was usually that of a middle aged woman but she looked so young in this 1933 silent film! Liked the nice plot, the interesting characters and the exciting chase sequence towards the end!
