The 300 Week 27: Ant-Man, The Wasp, and My White Person Voice

July 11, 2018 2 min read

Hidely ho, neighborinos, and welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my dumb-diddley attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be catching new releases, classics, hidden gems, and festival films to experience the wide world of cinema in all its forms. By casting a wide net, I hope there’s something that you can also enjoy and share.

As always, there are three rules for The 300:

  • The movie must be at least 40 minutes long, meeting the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ definition of a feature film.
  • I must watch the movie at a movie theater, screening room, or outdoor screening venue.
  • While I can watch movies I’ve seen before 2018, I cannot count repeated viewings of the same film in 2018 multiple times.

The New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) is finishing up this weekend, and I was able to catch a few more films over the last week. Wish I had time to see more. For instance, I missed out on 1987: When the Day Comes, the new movie by Save the Green Planet director Jang Joon-hwan. I also regret missing The Brink, the leading role debut of martial arts actor Zhang Jin, best known for his work in The Grandmaster, Ip Man 3, and SPL 2.

The Japan Cuts Film Festival, however, will be kicking off next week, and I will be catching a couple of the movies each weekend, including the East Coast premiere of Night Is Short, Walk on Girl from anime director Masaaki Yuasa. Keep an eye out for those reviews coming soon.

And so, onward.
