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.
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.
Though this came out a year ago, since I found it again on YouTube, I had to share a review of one of my favorite Chinese comedies, Foolish Plan 《呆呆计划》, starring Jiro Wang (“Rakshasa Street”), Jordan Chan (Ip Man: The Final Fight), Lawrence Ng (Keeper of Darkness) and Lee Beom-Soo (Unforgettable). It’s a comedy heist movie along the lines of Ocean’s Eleven and delivers a really enjoyable story that I have watched more than once.
Sailor Moon! Oh man…. this brings back memories. Lol. A lot of updates for movies from new stills to new teasers/songs; a huge chunk taken from the next news batch and some you might have seen on AVV twitter as I battled against site issues!
Can you believe our last movie date was in 2014?! This poor feature being forgotten and shoved in the last bunk of this ship. Let’s bring it back for our Saturday’s movie night! Feel free to drop movie suggestions through here or our twitter and if we can find quality sources, we’ll share it here. If you would like to review any movies, also let us know! It’s a one-time commitment to share your opinion!
Hi hi ^u^ First off, Happy Holidays to everyone~ So I see that everyone around is falling into either one of two camps right around now: very happy, or not so happy (and if you’re Kappy, you fall into your own category of injured and over-worked *hug*). Either way, I’m stepping in with a solution for you all~ It comes in the form of a couple of cuties from the land of mangoes (no, not India): the Phillipines~~
