Iceman / 冰封俠: 重生之門 movie review  / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: The change in premise gave way for something new.  Weapon fights were entertaining.  

The Bad: Puts down Hong Kong to no end.  Needless subplots. Lack exposition in key events that move the plot.  Cheap humor. Donnie Yen.

Storyline:

He Ying awakes to a new time.  It is the current day but the last he remembers was when he was fighting for the Ming Dynasty.  What will happen to this displaced time traveler?

Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2

Deathly Episode! Can’t wait to see how they will pace episode 3.

The Iceman Cometh / 急凍奇俠 movie review  / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: Awesome action pieces. Has a great charm when watching it now (2014). Great chemistry between Biao and Maggie.  

The Bad: Nothing much.  You could say it drags a bit here and there but it’s not that big of an issue.  

Storyline:

In 16th Century China, Ming guard Fong Sau-ching  relentlessly tracks the ruthless villain Feng San. After Feng San steals the priceless and magical Black Jade Buddha, a titanic martial arts encounter atop a cliff ensues and is only ended when the two men tumble into a glacier where they are instantly frozen. Mistakenly thawed out four hundred years later, Fong Sau-ching must continue his pursuit of his quarry although to survive in 1980s Kowloon with the confounding discovery of electricity, TV and toilets, he’s going to need a little help from femme fatale Polly!

That Demon Within / 魔警 movie review  / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: Great performance from Daniel Wu.  Interesting premise.

The Bad: Last 1/4 of the film really seems to went off rails compare to the first 3/4 of the film and character motivation suffered from this a lot. 

Storyline:

By a strange twist of fate, dutiful Hong Kong policeman Dave Wong saves the life of the leader of a violent gang of armed robbers. When they commit another crime, Dave is determined to put an end to their activities. But as Dave is getting deeper and deeper, he discovers something about himself, something that he may not want others to know about him, the Demon within.

Up in the Wind / 等風來 movie review / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: Interesting premise and nice cinematography.  

The Bad: Last act goes off course and doesn’t relate much to the rest of the film. Sold as a love story but it’s more of a finding yourself and discovering yourself story.  Though the friendship vein isn’t used that extensively either.  

Storyline:

An aspiring Shanghai-based lifestyle magazine writer trying to lift herself beyond her small-town roots and modest is sent to Nepal to write a piece but life takes a turn as she meets someone totally different to her lifestyle and shows her another side of life where she might find herself again.

The Grand Budapest Hotel movie review

The Good: Cinematography, dialogue and atmosphere were just fun. 

The Bad: Bog down by too many sub-plots. Story could have been more simple.

Storyline:

 The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.

The Midnight After / 那夜凌晨,我坐上了旺角開往大埔的紅van movie review  / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: Great premise and nice cinematography. Vibe and atmosphere was also nice as it was really spooky to be in areas that they actually filmed in. 

The Bad: Not a black comedy.  Character motivation at times were really weak. Some plot points dragged and pull away from premise too much. 

Storyline:

Imagine that the entire population of the planet has vanished, except for you and 16 other people. Do the moral principles and religious beliefs we live by still apply? If civilization has collapsed, how do we survive? How far would you be willing to go to get life back to normal?
