Ip Man 3 Making of (Action)

Movie Review:

If you enjoy martial arts and fighting scenes, you will enjoy this movie as it showcases Wing Chun 咏春拳, a form of Chinese Martial Arts which is quite popular in Hong Kong. Muk Yan Jong 木人樁(Wooden Dummy is frequently featured in this movie.

For this action packed movie, it focuses on the moves and the grooves. I would say that Patrick Tam’s imaging for the hooligan was well done. Lynn Hung looked more elegant in her qipao compared to the previous installment of Ip Man 1 & Ip Man 2.

It also showcases the emotional side of Ip Man with his wife and his younger son Ip Ching and jealousy of Cheung Tin Chi who thinks his Wing Chun is authentic compared to Ip Man’s Wing Chun.

Do watch if you like Martial arts.

Paddington – The movie

My favorite Peruvian bear is finally on the screen! So cute. I love its positive attitude as it always smiles.

Paddington Bear

I used to own quite a number of Paddington bear t-shirts as the t-shirts were more easily available in the mid 2000s and nowadays it is not easy to find Paddington bear products in the shops. I even designed a clock based on Paddington bear then.

Paddington Bear with his suitcase

This bear travelled from Peru to London on its own after its home was being destroyed by earthquake and its guardian – Aunt Lucy, had to go to home for the retirement bears. Paddington station – was the place where it met Mr Brown and his family, thus they named it as Paddington.

Aunt Lucy

Paddington as it faces its own adventures while getting used to its new life in London while being chased by Milicent (Nicole Kidman) to be part of her collection for display.

Do have a good laugh while watching this polite bear getting into troubles unwittingly and adapting the new environment. I will give this movie 4 out of 5 stars.

Now, please take care of this bear and enjoy the show. See you next time.

Big Hero 6 movie review

This animation looks better than the comic version of Big Hero 6. I love this balloon version of Baymax. White, rubber balloon.

Although he is a bit clumsy (with the size), however, he can be lovable in his own ways. It also shows the transmation of Baymax from a simple robot with just 1 main function to a hero to save the day as being a part of big hero 6.

Do catch this movie on cinemas and laugh it out loud especially on Baymax portion. I will give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars . Great movie!
