Another year has come...and we survived doomsday, or it's doomsday starting from now.... Guess mankind will never know. 2012 has been quite a rough ride, however I believe the ride will be smoothen from now on.
Great stuff in the movie world for 2012...with The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall and The Hobbit - to name these few big hit. But the one movie I was waiting for...Prometheus. It's Ancient Alien in a movie form. There were of course some great surprises along the was...Ted, The Bullet Vanishes (HK), Premium Rush, Cabin in the Woods...to name a few good surprises to me.
2012 also open me up to the Korean cinema...Wow! Really great stuff coming out from there. Great acting, good script and technically all good...way, way better than most Asian cinema. Here's a few (Actually some are old) I saw the Devil, Man from Nowhere, Nameless Gangster, Moss to name a few. Really good stuff from the Koreans.
As for my own film project, I have enlisted my friend Mr Kenny Chan to help me direct my upcoming horror project entitled "The Night Watchmen". More updates to come. Happy New Year!

Still in the midst of getting the script ready...however, found a title to this short film, "Twisted Night". Kindda felt it was right, but will get the consent from the team before making it official. It seems to be getitng a bit longer to get the script done this time around. Gonna keep pushing!

It's been pretty busy times lately, however will still find time to relax and what other way than to hit the cinemas or dvds or blu rays. Over the past weeks, there were quite a few misses than hits, for example...The Last Airbender...letdown, Salt...ain't that salty! Ong Bak 3...fell flat.
Shutter Island, Inception and Unthinkable stood out, and it's all about the story. It's really back to the story and use technology to enhance it and not the other way around. Looking forward to couple of HK films coming out soon, and hopefully they will turn out alright.

VHS - VCD - DVD - HD DVD - Blu Ray...what can I say...evolution! The excitement of watching a movie are more than just storyline, cast, director but the total experience! My first Blu Ray was 2012 and the clarity & detail just blew my eyes. It just brings the viewing pleasure to another pleasure.
If you haven't experience it, it's never too late. Start saving!!!

Over the few months, I have been watching quite a bit of TV series (US). Here are a few to share, Lie To Me...great show about a group of deception specialist (lie expert), then Trauma...about paramedics, followed by Flash Forward...whereby the whole world stopped for about 2 minutes, then chaos followed, and another Fringe (Season 2)...X-Files meets CSI meets Warehouse and lastly Harper's Island...13 weeks, 25 suspects, 1 killer.
So, do check those out!

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Let's hope the year of the tiger brings all goodness and peace to mankind. What a great time to catch up with the HK films, since they don't really have many great films throughout.
Nevertheless, I managed to catch 3 films all though CNY...14 Blades, Little Big Soldier and True Legend.
