• A Simple Life

    May 26, 2015

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

  • Cageman

    Feb 27, 2015

    Jacob Cheung’s celebrated drama is that magical juxtaposition of gritty social commentary and absorbing character study that many lesser directors aspire to replicate.

  • Cherie

    Nov 2, 2017

    Patrick Tam’s ‘Cherie’ is, simply put, little more than a moderately average eighties romantic comedy and decidedly underwhelming when compared against any of the true “greats” of the era.

  • Fight Back To School

    Mar 12, 2015

    ‘Fight Back To School’ is one of the finest films in the Stephen Chow back catalogue, and one of my favourite Hong Kong comedies of all time.

  • Heart Into Hearts

    Mar 23, 2015

    ‘Heart Into Hearts’ is subsequently a perfect example of the law of diminishing returns, a sequel that tries to impress with its relative opulence but forgets how important its characters are.

  • Heart To Hearts

    Mar 23, 2015

    With consistent pacing, a convincing story and an effortless mixture of comedy and romance, it is no wonder that ‘Heart To Hearts’ was successful enough to spawn two sequels and numerous imitators.

  • I Love Maria

    Mar 27, 2015

    ‘I Love Maria’ offers a very good 100 minutes of entertainment for those who are looking for something new within Hong Kong cinema.

  • Mermaid Got Married

    Apr 22, 2015

    Though director Norman Law sets up a few interesting rivalries between the characters, the film tends to get too bogged down in its teen romance sub-plot.

  • Naked Weapon

    May 3, 2015

    Worth a look if you are a fan of the genre, as much of the action hints at the potential on offer when such talented choreographers are available.

  • 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.

  • 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.
