Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu (2019): 4/5

Was a Pokemon fan back in the day and enjoyed this a lot, Ryan Reynolds does a great job voicing Pikachu in a buddy-cop/mystery movie with a good story and some excellent design.

Kind of funny that he's not a star, as I think Hoshi means 'star' in Japanese :)

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Harvey (1950): 4/5 Jimmy Stewart stars in this amusing story about a man whose best friend is a six foot tall rabbit, something which really annoys his family but charms others equally. Interesting to see how mental conditions were viewed back then. Stewart's character is an eccentric but basically ...

Sister Street Fighter (1974): 4/5

Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971): 3.5/5 Not one of Disney's very best, but this film is still worth a watch and holds some nostalgic value for me. Angela Lansbury is wonderful as a slightly dotty apprentice witch who uses her magic to help Britain during World War II. With it's magical plot, music an...

I don't think the extended version adds much, the theatrical version is very good :)

Forgot to mention some of the music in Golden Swallow which has a spaghetti western feel (the trumpet music)

Actors' names.

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Having read IMDB's synopsis, sounds like the opposite of The Children (2008)
Edit: Hold up, just noticed all our posts have been reset, WTH? :?

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Golden Swallow (1968): 4/5 Not quite as good as Come Drink With Me but still a fine film, darker and more brutal than CDWM in places, maybe thanks to Chang Cheh being director, and some really evil villains. This film has nothing to do with it even though Cheng Pei Pei is playing the same character....

Killer Clans (1976): 3/5

Period Shaws film can get confusing at times with plenty of double crossing and intrigue, it's not always easy to keep track of who is who, and occasionally Chinese characters (writing) appears on screen but I'm not sure what its supposed to indicate.

Tai Chi Master (1993): 3.5/5

Period adventure is certainly entertaining enough, the sound on the Dragon Dynasty BD is sometimes very odd with unnatural impact sounds on the mono (?) soundtrack. The opening montage looks soft too, with a flickering image.

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Merantau (2009): 3.5/5 Pretty good, with a darker than expected story and effective action, the Western villains are very cliche though. If the main character had the final face off against his brother that would have been a better showdown - shame about the sad ending :( When the credits rolled I r...
