Opening this week.

Happily Ever After
Happily Ever After

A new local film opens this week in the form of Happily Ever After (很想和你在一起).  The film stars some young newcomers, but the fact the Hui Siu-Hung (許紹雄) makes an appearance, has me sold.  As one can see from the trailer below, it promises all the traditional trappings of teenage romance triangles. Here’s hoping it is less cliched than the English title 😉

Cyborgs “R” Us

Is this a movie or am I just playing Final Fantasy XIV?.
Is this a movie or am I just playing Final Fantasy XIV?.

Jeff Lau’s latest film Kung Fu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction hit Hong Kong screens yesterday.  To celebrate the rarity that is a Hong Kong science fiction film, tomorrow I will be off with The Golden Rock and Kozo (from LoveHKfilm) and several other brave souls to take in this feast for the senses. 

And a veritable feast it must be to fulfill the claims of the tagline in the trailer below as a martial arts, sci-fi, comedy.  It is the track record of local productions with that middle genre that scares me.  But hey, if it gets the other two genres correct…well 2 out of 3 won’t be too bad.
