Movie Review: The Monkey King 3 (Cmovie, 2018)

新年快乐! Since it’s Chinese New Year’s weekend and there are actually quite a few movies playing in the theatre near me, I decided to go see The Monkey King 3. I think this was the most people I’d seen in the theatre for a Chinese movie, attesting to the popularity of this story and the actors in it. It stars Feng Shaofeng (“The Starry Night, The Starry Sea”) and Zhao Liying (“Princess Agents”) and continues the story of the monk and his disciples traveling West.

Li Xian and Yang Zi confirm drama Go Go Squid (Stewed Squid With Honey)

YAY! Both of them have been in ancient dramaland for a while now so I welcome them back to the modern world. But I did hope it was with a different storyline. Hu Yi Tian and Janice Wu were rumored for this project for a while but today the production has just confirmed the leads to be Li Xian (Tientsin Mystic) and Yang Zi (Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost). Go Go Squid or Stewed Squid With Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a sweet novel written by Mo Bao Fei Bao. On the other hand, the story doesn’t seem up to their acting caliber, described as a gentle and an easy read, some comments even go as far as saying it’s forgettable after a hearty laugh, but likable characters and setups. The heroine is described as a genius 19-year old student with high IQ and low EQ, who is also a famous anime cosplay person and sings well. She’s struck by love at first sight with the male lead, who is a game genius in the e-sports world and never pays attention to the girls.

I feel like these types of story could be given to rookie actors while these two could go for more challenging roles. Who knows, maybe they need a break?

TVB’s Golden Couple Louis Koo and Jessica Hsuan reunite for magazine spread

And of course one of my favorite golden couples who collaborated in many productions in the past! The most memorable to me is definitely Detective Investigation Files IV where I met my match in the most twisted love triangles ever! Like you just couldn’t pick a girl for the boy because both ladies went through so much for him and because of him. Aiyaaa!! Oh the two couples in there…. Sunny Chan and Charmaine Sheh was the other unfortunate couple. I want to re-watch but my heart is not ready for the turbulence. XD

Movie Review: Till the End of the World (Cmovie, 2018)

For the Mark Zhao (“Ten Miles of Peach Blossom”) fans out there, you definitely must check out this movie. Or if you just love really well told stories of adventure and survival, this is a must see. It’s a visually stunning movie about two people who survive a plane crash in the Antarctic and must figure out how to find help in time. It’s a beautifully told story and, so far, one of the best Chinese movies I’ve seen.
