The Help

I just watch another inspiring movie and I gotta share it with y'all.

This story is about a young writer who wanted to write a book about colored maids working for their white families. The main theme here is about racism. 

It was an eye opener for me as I never knew what is it like racism in America. Watching this movie gave me an insight of how the so called coloured people are poorly treated back then. It's quite a sad thing to see there is a huge gap difference between 2 equally same human being.

I don't understand why they don't use proper english, it actually bothers me. 
In fact a lot of movies also have this kind of problem.

I have always wanted to know about American history. It's a shame that it's not in our syllabus.  All we have learnt in 5 years of history class in secondary school are our country's journey to independent. Our education system just sucks! We have never learnt about the Opium war, Civil War, WWI and II, The Holocaust and many other great historical events.

Movie companies should produce more inspiring movies like this. Last month, I subscribe to astro movie pack, when I go through the tv schedule, I found out that 80% of these movies are action thriller. They are either about chasing and killing between the outlaws and law enforcer (FBI, CIA, LAPD, NYPD, Private Detective, ex-cop and superheroes), or aliens invading America.

This genre is becoming overrated and redundant. However when I think about it, there are reasons why they keep making action thrillers, it's because of demand, most audience like exciting, heart-pumping, adrenaline rushing movies with a lot of CGIs. Unlike me, I prefer these type of slower pace, heart-stirring flicks, but not TOO slow like the Tibetan movie Thangka. Don't watch it if you don't have the patience. I'm still wondering why it was listed in the A-List movies.

On the other hand, 80% of Fox Family movies are about dogs and most of the movies are at least 10 years old. So if you like action thrillers and dogs, this movie package is definitely for you.

Anyway I'm not going to spoil the beans, watch it for yourself.
Trust me, it's worth your 2 hours time.
I would not recommend it if it has no 90 nominations with 36 wins
It's available on iflix.
