• A Simple Life

    May 26, 2015

    ‘A Simple Life’ is the perfect marriage of arthouse style and heart-rending substance.

  • Carry On Pickpocket

    Feb 28, 2015

    Starts out as a fairly happy-go-lucky comedy but eventually culminates in an all action finale that is surprisingly violent for a film of this ilk.

  • Deadly Dream Woman

    Mar 5, 2015

    A deeply unfunny comedy from director Taylor Wong who allows all pace and narrative flair to disappear out of the window after the first ten minutes.

  • Dragons Forever

    Mar 9, 2015

    Chan and Hung continue to substantiate their legendary status in the cinematic hall of fame, but it is Yuen Biao who really steals the film.

  • Fight Back To School 2

    Mar 12, 2015

    Although it isn’t quite as good as the original, ‘Fight Back To School 2’ is still a solid sequel that contains some classic moments of hilarity.

  • Handsome Siblings

    Mar 22, 2015

    Above average production values help and a touch of style to the proceedings as does the all-star cast, but it still may not be enough to earn this a proper recommendation.

  • Mr. Boo Meets Pom Pom

    May 1, 2015

    Although there is a great deal of potential within the casting, ‘Mr.Boo Meets Pom Pom’ is certainly the weakest of the Pom Pom quartet.

  • Our Time Will Come

    Jan 19, 2018

    ‘Our Time Will Come’ is another excellent Ann Hui film, but it’s Zhou Xun’s aptitude that lingers after the running time ends.

  • Pom Pom

    May 14, 2015

    ‘Pom Pom’ is a typically enjoyable 80’s Hong Kong comedy that will definitely strike a chord with fans of the ‘Lucky Stars’.

  • Pom Pom Strikes Back

    May 13, 2015

    With this fourth part the formula remains in place and the whole production has the very comfortable feeling of familiarity to it.

  • Queen Of Kowloon

    May 16, 2015

    ‘Queen Of Kowloon’ is a needlessly miserable drama that prefers wallowing in empty disaster to telling a story we might actually find ourselves involved in.

  • Thanks For Your Love

    Jun 10, 2015

    Normally the framework of such a film is at least clichéd, but here it is simply bizarre and uninvolving.

  • The Lunatics

    Apr 18, 2015

    This film has no happy endings or easy ways out; it grips on to its audience and just refuses to let go.

  • The New Legend Of Shaolin

    May 4, 2015

    What could have been a classic is rendered merely enjoyable by the prominence of some very weak comedy.

  • The Owl And Dumbo

    May 10, 2015

    While not offering the very finest of Sammo’s work, ‘The Owl And Dumbo’ is an entertaining and worthwhile slice of 80’s Hong Kong cinema.

  • The Return Of Pom Pom

    May 17, 2015

    As with all of the ‘Pom Pom’ films, the emphasis is on comedy and specifically the interplay between Shum and Ng.
