This year CNY movies was a lot to choose from. Rather than choosing which one to watch or not, we just went for all of em'! That is within a few days in CNY! People say that we're crazy! Well, we are!
Funnily for the first one, we went for Mr & Mrs Incredible. Which was nothing to brag about. No wonder it was easier to get tix for this movie. I know, I know, Sandra Ng is in it. It is funny but the storyline ~ erm..... And don't think and Louis Koo is the best partner for Sandra. Age gap! But hey! It's a CNY movie! Laughable is enough. I did kinda enjoyed it ~ a bit...
This talks about a pair of retired superheroes trying to live as a normal couple in a small town. Hiding their super powers and just works as government worker and restaurant owner. But sooner or later, their itch to become heroes comes alive. Normal living is just too bored for them...
Next up ~ I Love Hong Kong. Similar to last year's 72 Tenants of Prosperity with Eric Tsang, Jacky Cheung and a whole lot of TVB stars. Too many people to focus then. But this time, I think they have learnt. Still keeping Eric and replacing Jacky with Tony Leong Kar Fai plus some TVB stars. Not too overwhelming... And ~ And Aarif Lee is in it! OMG! Still looking good! Just gorgeous!
Simple enough, the story is about HK live in the government flats. Introducing HK in another way, I think. Very entertaining indeed. Sandra Ng is also in this. This time I like her better =) Good show!
Then, comes in the always All's Well End's Well . Every year without fail, it comes out. However, I still prefer those old ones. Those with Leslie Cheung and Momo. Those are classics!
Different cast ~ with Yip Man... ops I meant Donnie Yen, Johnnie To, Cecelia Chueng and Louis Koo (again). I don't know about you, but I keep seeing Yip Man's shadow in this movie. Especially when Donnie was doing make-up. LOL! Another laughable CNY movie to watch. Don't think there is any special storyline to it though. Good entertainment =)
How about Homecoming from our neighbour, Singapore? But I think most of the filming was done here in Malaysia. We have our ver own Ah Niu and Afdlin Shauki. Not forgetting our neighbour's Jack Neo and Mark Lee. With these, for sure it will crack you up!
Topic of the day ~ Reunion Dinner. You know when people is too busy to go home for even 1 dinner? Ahh! This is the one that can smack those people on the face! Some people just wouldn't care less about reunion dinner saying it's 'just a dinner'. Well, Homecoming is just about appreciating this. Go home and have reunion dinner, no matter it's just veggie and rice or abalone with sharkfins. It's the family reunion =)
Now, let's change the scene a bit. From all those CNY laughter, we go to a more serious note. Andy Lau finally comes out with Shaolin together with Nicholas Tse. It's been a while we haven't seen them on screen.
I'm amazed at Nicholas's acting has improved a lot. He really did a good job of becoming the evil one. And Andy, there is nothing else but praise for this veteran. From evil to good. Very well done! The storyline doesn't run far with China and wars going on with multiple warlords wants to share the land. Shaolin, as usual will not be a part of these. And on how Andy became good after evil? and Nicholas taking charge? Better go see yourself. Must not miss this!
So, after the marathon of movies ~ I came up with a favorite ranking list ^^
