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

Toy Story 4 (2019): 4.5/5

Though this is an excellent third sequel and much better than I thought it would be, I think that should be the end now

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

The Lion King (2019): 4/5 Visually stunning CGI recreation of the original (the opening sequence is incredible), but that's just it in a way, it's beautiful to look at but doesn't add anything to the story even though the cast are so good (James Earl Jones is back as Mufasa) and the memorable music ...

Sorry to hear that Mark :( I heard Bruce's daughter wasn't happy with the film either

Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

Do you think Woo ever saw The Creature Called Man, sounds familliar :) He was influenced a lot by Chang Cheh too (and The Killer shares some themes with Le Samourai imo) but who knows

Ordered:
The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad (Standard Edition, UK) BD

The Current War (2017): 3.5/5 Tells the story of the battle of late 19th century inventors to be the first to show and produce working electricity on a big scale in the United States (Edison v Tesla). An interesting film with good performances especially the main characters (Benedict Cumberbatch pla...

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 :)

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 ...

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...

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.
