Labor Day Movie Watching for 2015


Well, I decided to have my Labor Day 2015 movie watch early. We here in the U.S. will be celebrating this holiday on September 7, 2015 which was originally organized to celebrate various labor associations’ strengths and contributions to the United States economy. Now it is largely a day of rest.

As I have my Asadora, Mare to catch up with (6 weeks worth) and many episodes of Scholar Who Walks the Night, I left my movie watching for this weekend instead but will share with you what I felt were the best of the movies that I watch. The movies are of every genre (Romance, Action, Wuxia, Fantasy) but I focused more on Japanese and Chinese movies for a change. Let me know what you think of my picks. Enjoy! Continue reading

So, are they worth watching? Read on! Continue reading

Drama Marathon – Cuo Dian Yuan Yang (2012)


After completing Cruel Romance (2015), I really was in the mood to watch some other works of the leads (Qi Ji/ Hwang Xiao Ming). While searching for something (watching Shanghai Bund for HXM), I came across this drama of Qi Ji. You read that this was a marathon, right? That’s right, folks. I started it on Wednesday and through the night of Friday into Saturday, I watched nothing else and completed all 50 episodes (2 seasons for those that want to know)! This was the first Chinese drama that I’ve ever marathon watched and I can report, what a great experience it was…read on.
