watched overheard 2 last night. it wasn’t my movie of choice because although i enjoyed the first movie, i couldn’t understand why they named this one after the first one when all the cast in the first had died. i was told that the second movie is an entirely new plot, new story and the characters have been reshuffled around but still i was skeptical.
overheard 2 is one of the best hong kong movies i have watched in recent years. way better than the first one. i like it for all the right reasons. all the villians were the big-time bad boys in hong kong cinema which i haven’t seen in so long and i actually thought by now some of them would be dead by now. the story line is really tight and right from the start, i couldn’t wait to get more out of the movie. i was like – oh my god, what is next? why is he doing that?
you know when they say we get better with age – we really do. a few years ago, i remember thinking louis koo is such a crap actor but his performance in overheard 2 is absolutely mind blowing. but i love daniel wu’s character the most and daniel has never looked better in recent years. he is still one of the hottest chinese actors in hong kong cinema and he has gotten better and better with each movie.
if you think hong kong movies aren’t worth going back to the cinemas for, overheard 2 will change your mind all over again about hong kong. definitely a great mid-autumn festival treat with so much eye candy and heart pumping action.
watched the last and final boy wizard harry potter film last night.
for me harry potter and the deathly hallows ended on a bitter sweet note. as a child, i often wished for magic and miracles. i wanted to believe in unicorns and enchanted forests.
the first time i fell in love with magic was probably with enid blyton’s the enchanted forest series. harry potter fed on the remaining aspirations i that had for magic. one is never too old to believe in the world of magic. magic represents all that is possible and represents our hopes and optimism.
what i enjoy most about harry potter movies besides talking walking photos are tales of great courageous friendships and adventures
if life was magical journey, then we better find people we like to share it with because at the end of the day, everything will end and change.
goodbye boy wizard. goodbye dark lord..
it has been a good 10 years of magic. it is definitely a curtain call to a a great era.
