    Mulan (2020). Being rewatching quite a bit of Mulan here at my hub.

    One thing that always bugs me is Mulan face was always dirty as a guy but when she let her hair down, her face suddenly cleaned up with make up.

    Kung **** Hustle (2004). This HK film is so good that it might be my most watched film. This is probably the sixth time I watched this. It is a comedy, action drama.

    It is also the second last good film by comedy king Stephen Chow.

    IP Man 3 (2015). The IP Man series is the most watchable HK action movies in the current era under China's licensing. Many other HK films now are rather bad as they are made in accordance to the Beijing's guidelines.

    This might be the third time I watched this.

    IP Man 2 (2010). Rewatching this nice HK action drama at my community hub. Maybe the third time I watched this.

    One of the best moment in the film, dueling on top of an unstable roundtable. Flying high in the sky was Sammo Hung.

    Master Z : The IP Man Legacy (2018) . This film story falls in the universe of Donnie's Yen IP Man series. It is a spin off of a character from IP Man three. The lead is played Max Zhang, a martial artist actor who is starting to have his own films. This is a rewatch for me. This film can be placed between IP Man 3 & 4

    psWdGSm.jpg
    A nice street scene with old bus.

    Max gave a formidable flying kick.

    Tony Jaa. He was so good in his Ong Bak films but was only given very small roles in HK and Hollywood films. I am thinking it might be a language issue.

    6UIScX5.jpg
    Another formidable HK martial artist Xing Yu. So far, he was never given any big roles. He has long training in Shaolin before and had appeared in films like Kung **** Hustle and Flashpoint. Age is catching up on him though. He actually appeared in IP Man as another character.

    elOdgeE.jpg
    Michelle Yeoh and Max Zhang. Michelle was famous for her role in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. She was also a bond girl opposite Pierce Brosnan. She is a gem from Malaysia.

    Enjoying congee and a Chinese fried dough fritters. The fritters is a popular breakfast food for Chinese here too long time ago. It splits into two parts. It has an origin related to a corrupt official and his wife where people imagined that this couple was being fried in oil. They caused the wrongful execution of a loyal general, YueFei.

    I also like the nice set of the living room.

    It just happened to be on so I watched it. It's really not that good but it's not horrible. It was fun to revisit the concept as it's pretty much exactly like the first movie minus the danger and humor.

    Cruella (2021) Starring Emma Stone, Emma Thompson and Mark Strong now there’s been similarities with the film being an origin story about Cruella with people saying Disney are copying Joker 2019 and Harley Quinn Though I don’t know the tone of the film though Glenn Close gave everybody nightmares in 101 Dalmatians (1996) and the sequel 102 Dalmatians (2000) we’ll get a different adaptation from Emma Stone basically more emotion and I don’t really see from the trailer if it’s appealing to children even though it’s a Disney film we know that Disney have run out of ideas in making new films in the last couple of years Live-action Reboots some were bad others ok now they’ll be doing prequel origin movies of Disney Villains depending on the success of Cruella.

    IP Man (2008). A very good watch. Watched this maybe fourth time. This time at Auntie house on the first day of Chinese New Year. My cousin said that Chinese New year needs to watch Chinese film.

    The Legend of Tarzan (2016). High production value with big names in the supporting cast. Though I do not know the actor who played the lead role. Overall, it was a sustained boring show. There was also not a single scene of tarzan in a loincloth holding a half naked, sweaty, dirty Jane swinging around the jungle and crying oh yee oh yee oh..

    I watched this at my community hub

    Flash point (2007). This HK crime action drama is really good for its brutal fighting sequences. This might be the fourth time I watched. It was also the first film that I started to notice Fang bingbing, a beautiful Chinese actress. She is now not doing too well after being made disappeared for some time by the CCP and later needed to give public apology for her tax evasion charges.

    I watched this film at my community hub.

    Other good films by this director includes Kill Zone (SPL), Dragon Tiger Gate and the IP Man series.

    Power Rangers (2017). I actually like this film the first time I watched it. But the rewatch wasn't so enjoyable as the origin storyline took too long to set up.

    The action sequences towards the end is good though.

    Escape from Pretoria (2020). Many tense moment and I could see the audience leaning forward during my watch at the community hub. I did fall asleep in the middle though, probably my fault for being so tired. Story is very straight forward.

    Drama is based on real events

    Finished this Marvel limited series. I really enjoyed it. It was clever and very unique. The early episodes reminded me a lot of all the old sitcoms I watched as a kid. I'm now looking forward to the next limited series, Falcon and the Winter Soldier which I believe starts next week.

    The Last Samurai (2003). A very good entertaining watch. This is a rewatch for me. Last time watched the censored version on my small 20 inch TV. Now watched it at the community hub.

    The Walk (2015). Not much of a storyline. Main highlights is to see how they set up the tightrope and the walk itself. Overall an interesting above average watch.

    ksYHDEY.jpg
    A scene to appease the Chinese market?

    Beautiful CGI towers. I had a one third day trip there long ago and was fortunate to go up to the roof.

    Terminator Salvation (2009). I think this is the fourth time I watched this. I find it entertaining. This round I watched at my community hub and it was the first time I found out that we were shown censored versions of films at the public screening. A scene of partial nudity of a lady was cut out. Though all the important parts cannot be seen as I have seen the complete version before.
