Movie Review – The Wandering Earth (2019)

The Wandering Earth, 2019.

Directed by Frant Gwo.

Starring Jing Wu, Chuxiao Qu, Guangjie Li, Man-Tat Ng, Mike Kai Sui, Jin Mai Jaho, Hongchen Li.

Synopsis:

Sometime in the future, the sun is dying out, so mankind have built gigantic thrusters to propel the Earth from its orbit, to find a new home across the solar system. With the journey set to last 2500 years, it’s a mission fraught with danger, with The Wandering Earth chronicling the adventures of the intrepid young survivors at the heart of the story.

Frant Gwo’s science-fiction blockbuster crash lands onto Netflix as something of a perplexing surprise. Not least because surely its near $700 million Chinese box-office receipts afforded it more of a fanfare than being inconspicuously dumped on the streaming platform’s notoriously labyrinthine menu page. But maybe it’s deserving of such a fate?

The story is bonkers. It’s the kind of

Sammo Hung And The Lucky Star Gang Set To Return

Legendary Actor and Film-Maker Sammo Hung is back with a bang, teaming up with Kickboxer Actor Dennis Chan to form a new film company “Sammo Hung films“. This is very exciting news with many Projects already being planned such as To Catch a Killer, Back to School, Operation: Ground Zero, Silk Road, I-Ching Warriors, The Detrimental Protectors and the big one The Return of Lucky Stars.

Excited?

The Return of Lucky Stars will bring together the old “Lucky Stars Gang”, reuniting Sammo Hung with Richard Ng, Eric Tsang and John Sham. I’m a very big fan of the Lucky Star Movies from the hard hitting Wheels On Meals to the Hilarious Winners And Sinners, i am sure The Return of Lucky Stars will be another hit for the gang. I am more confident now, we could get the Three Dragons back together for one last time, Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao.

Review: "Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back" Wreaks Havoc in Heaven

  • MUBI
Hot off the success of last year’s box office record-setting smash The Mermaid, Stephen Chow brought us a sequel this Lunar New Year to his 2013 film Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. While it set an opening day record in China, and was initially released in North America on roughly twice as many screens, it has thus far failed to match The Mermaid’s financial success. I have no idea why that is, anyone who claims to understand what makes the difference between a hit and a super-hit is a liar or a fool, but I can theorize that the film’s somewhat mixed critical response is a response to its weird hybrid nature. Not just in the ways Chow situates a sincere appreciation for religion within a goofy pop context, but in the film’s dual authorship between Chow, who co-wrote and produced, and Tsui Hark, who directed.

God of Gamblers Series 1989 - 2016

Started in 1989 by the prolific Wong Jing, the God of Gamblers series has been continuing to entertain audiences for the past 27 years. Starring some of the biggest stars in Hong Kong cinema, Chow Yun Fat, Andy Lau, Stephen Chow, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Ng Man Tat, Leon Lai, Nick Cheung, Donnie Yen and a lot more, the series has had its ups and downs, but each film usually has something for most Hong Kong cinema fans. Incorporating sequels, spinoffs, unofficial spinoffs and even spinoffs of spinoffs, the God of Gamblers series is truly one of a kind. God of Gamblers – 1989 This is where it all started. Probably the best film from Wong Jing (some would argue that it wouldn’t be difficult),...

Film Review: It’S Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong [LAFilmFest 2015]

It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong (2015) Film Review from the 21st Annual Los Angeles Film Festival, a movie directed by Emily Ting, Starring Jamie Chung, Bryan Greenberg, Zach Hines, Richard Ng, Linda Trinh, Collin Leydon and Po-Chih Leong.

There were many films to get lost in at this years Film festival. The film budgets are going up and named actors are throwing their hat in the dance more and more. One thing I also noticed was new directors coming in and telling an old story with fresh faces.

Emily Ting, Director and Writer of It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong, has directed six films. This appears to be her best film to date. When this movie starts I noticed the wonderful photography and the beauty of Hong Kong. It’s an amazing place…especially when filmed at night. It reminded me of another film…from another time – When harry Met Sally.

Shadows of Love (aka Repeat I Love You, 2012) Movie Review

“Hi, Fidelity” writer director Calvin Poon returns with pan-Asian romantic comedy “Shadows of Love”, this time backed by acclaimed film maker Stanley Kwan (“Rouge”, “Centre Stage”) lending his talents as producer. The film features a high profile lead pairing in Kwon Sang Woo, one of Korea’s top stars, known for his roles in a variety of hit television series such as “Lady President” and “Cinderella Man”, as well as big screens outings “Pain” and “71 – Into the Fire”, and popular Chinese actress Cecilia Cheung (“Legendary Amazons”), continuing her career comeback. The Chinese production (Kwon’s first Chinese language outing) also boasts a supporting cast of up and coming Mainland and Taiwanese talents, including Singer Angela Chang (“10+10”), Jing Boran (“Love in Space”), Jing Tian (“The Warring States”) and male model Sphinx Ting, with all-time favourite Hong Kong character actor Richard Ng (“My Lucky Stars”) on hand in a small but very welcome appearance.

Lam Ching Ying Vs The Dead: Top 10 Movies

Lam Ching Ying is my favorite star in any Horror movie, weather it be taking on hopping vampires or just plain old spirits, no one does it better than lam.

His roles in the Mr.Vampire movies show his skills as an actor, with great comic timing which goes well with his serious acting side, which we dont normally get to see on screen. This role would make him, not just a big star in Asia but also worldwide as the master of Vampire killers.

I hope you enjoy my top 10 list and please feel free to write your own favorites in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

I thought it was about time i did a post on the great vampire buster of all time, yes you got it, lam Ching Ying. This will be listing all the movies and tv series where Lam Ching Ying either stars in or takes on the hopping vampires and evil spirits.

His roles in the Mr.Vampire movies show his skills as an actor, with great comic timing which goes well with his serious acting side, which we normally get to see on screen. This role would make him, not just a big star in Asia but also worldwide as the master of Vampire killers.

The Fortune Buddies (2011) Movie Review

The Fortune Buddies” is the latest big screen outing from Tvb and Shaw Brothers, following up on their successful “72 Tenants of Prosperity” and “I Love Hong Kong”. Produced as usual by Eric Tsang and directed by studio regular Chung Sue Kie, who was also recently responsible for the comedy “Adventure of the King”, the wacky film revolves around Louis Yuen, Wong Cho Lam and Johnson Lee, famed for their Tvb comedy sketch program “Fun with Liza And Gods” as three down on their luck men who end up becoming wrestlers. As well as a supporting cast that includes Fiona Sit (“The Way we Were”), Maggie Cheung (“Punished”), Hong Kong veteran Pauline Wong and Tsang himself, the film unsurprisingly packs in a huge number of cameos, including, but not limited to Michael Tse, King Kong, Richard Ng, Lam Suet, Tin Kai Man and Bosco Wong.

Magnificent Warriors (1987)

Boy, have martial arts films from Hong Kong come a long way! Since Magnificent Warriors is a kung fu film from the 1980s, there's no doubt that it hasn't aged really well. Nonetheless, if you're a fan of fighting films, then this is for you.

The film starts in 1938, a time when there were conflicts between Japan and China. Fok Ming-Ming (Michelle Yeoh) is a spy for the Chinese resistance movement who is asked to fly in the region of Inner Mongolia. Her job is to find a spy codenamed Sky Number One (Richard Ng) and cooperate with him in flying out Youda (Lowell Lo), a lord who rules the city of Kaal. Besides, the resistance movement sent a flashy watch through a pigeon.

However, the watch falls into the hands of Wong (Yee Tung-Shing), a tramp and a gambler, because he killed the bird and ate it. Obviously, Ming-Ming

Till Death Shall We Start (1990) Movie Review

Originally released back in 1990 when the Hong Kong ghost comedy was enjoying somewhat of a resurgence, “Till Death Shall we Start” joined the ranks of films with suspiciously familiar sounding titles, including the likes of “Till Death do we Scare” and “Till Death do us Laugh”. The film was directed by none other than Ricky Lau, who had been responsible for one of the genre’s very best and biggest hits in the form of the immortal “Mr Vampire”. Here, he teams with two of the period’s top comic titles in Anthony Chan (“Happy Bigamist”) and Richard Ng (“Winners and Sinners”) in a manic, bawdy romp that now makes a very welcome return to DVD. The film gets off to a lively start, with Anthony Chan as David causing havoc at his wedding when he is revealed by a bunch of low-rent ghostbuster types to be a green haired

Triad Story (1990) Movie Review

Although Stephen Chow is obviously best known for his comedic genius and hits such as “Kung Fu Hustle” and “Shaolin Soccer”, as a young actor he paid his dues in a variety of genres. Inevitably, as with pretty much every other performer of his generation, this saw him making a number of appearances in that most enduring of 1990s trends, namely the Triad drama. The unimaginatively titled “Triad Story”, directed by Shum Wai, better known as a bit part actor who turned up in the likes of “Police Story 3”, was one such early role, which saw him star alongside an impressive cast of veterans including Ng Man Tat, Wu Ma, Shing Fui On and Billy Chow. The film begins in familiar style with Triad boss Feng (Ke Jun Hsung, another instantly recognisable face who featured in a number of Jackie Chan films including “The Canton Godfather” and “Island of
