The Kid from Big Apple – Major Tear Jerker

I am not afraid to announce that yes, I cried watching the movie “The Kid from Big Apple”, several times! The movie is a real tear-jerker, even for big grown up men like myself. I’m pretty sure that by the end of the movie, there were not a single dry eye in the cinema hall […]

Mermaid – typical Stephen Chow

Movies weekend again for me and the two kids! As promised to them, I brought them to watch The Mermaid. The legendary Stephen Chow does not appear in the movie, but his signature style can’t be mistaken. If you have watched his last few movies like CJ7, Kung Fu Hustle or Shaolin Soccer, you’ll know […]

OMG, I’m watching Ola Bola for the second time! And this is the best ever! Why, well read on! It was the 3rd day of CNY. We’ve got nothing much to do in Sagil, so I suggested to my father-in-law that I bring them to watch Ola-Bola, since I know he’s a football fan, he’ll […]

Ola Bola – A truly historical moment in time

Posted: 8th February 2016 by Jacky Yong in Movies and TV Shows

Well done Director Chiu, you’ve done it again! After wow-ing us with pass blockbuster films such as Woo Hoo and The Journey, he returns with another cinema hit. Unlike his previous films, this time it’s a non-CNY themed movie, and non-fully chinese movie, which is good. He managed to break his mould and do something […]

I was in Midvalley yesterday to catch the second movie that I watch this week. This time I watched it with Hui Yan and Kit Yan.

Interstellar was stellar!

Posted: 11th November 2014 by Jacky Yong in Movies and TV Shows

Interstellar is unapologetically a nerd’s movie. It was a good thing that I went alone to watch it; I would have to do a lot of explaining if my wife or kids were there. Lots of concepts about relativity, worm holes and inter-dimentional travel. It’s all a mind-boggling experience for those weaker in Physics. That […]

Drink in my hand, popcorn in the other. An empty movie hall on a weekday. IMAX! This is the life!

Movies weekend

I watched two movies over the weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I had higher hopes for GOTG, and I was let down. Even IMDB rated it higher than TMNT. But it was rather boring, so I’m not going to write about that. Then I watched TMNT. I had expected it […]

Not-so-Great Day

Went to watch the much hyped Great Day, 天天好天, a movie directed by the same person who gave you Tiger WooHoo last year. This 天天好天 movie has a lot to live up to, since it features so many of the previous actors and actresses from Tiger WooHoo. There was also a lot of so-called “good […]

Okay, I admit it! I’m a cry baby, maybe a little emotional. My eyes were a bit wet when I saw this last night….. Okay okay, I cried, there, happy? I did not know how powerful the movie can be! It was already late, I should be sleeping, but I watched a short clip and […]
