The other day, while having dinner at Hai Di Lao, my girlfriend suddenly asked me, "So what do you and Garry do on weekends?" That question left me dumbfounded for a while…

The other day, while having dinner at Hai Di Lao, my girlfriend suddenly asked me, "So what do you and Garry do on weekends?"

That question left me dumbfounded for a while… errr ya hor, what exactly do we do ah?

"Hmm... we wake up late, have brunch, catch a movie, have dinner with either his parents or mine. Go for drinks with friends and then the weekend's over." I replied.

Very boring right? Haha. But seriously, we watch A LOT of movies… at least one a weekend, sometimes two or three, so that makes it at least 52 movies a year. :scream:

Mostly at my insistence because I’m such a movie junkie… I pretty much watch ANYTHING. Chick flicks, action films, super hero films with very skimpy plots, local films (these are my fav actually! #singaporepride), Chinese comedies etc.

Except Asian horror movies because they creep the hell out of me… and I think cause there’s a lot more that we can relate to? After The Eye, Shutter, The Ring and the likes… Twilight feels like Sesame Street please.

So anyway, I had the pleasure of attending an event by Clover Films where they shared with us their upcoming movies lineup for ‘14/15 - this means I get to have first pick on the movies for our future weekend dates teehee!

Happy to spot some familiar faces :)

Clover Films really has quite an exciting range of movie releases coming up! You can check out their Facebook and Instagram to get first hand updates….

Here are my top 3 picks:

HAEMOO

image

Based on true events, HAEMOO is the story of a group of fishermen who are driven into madness when they realise they are being used to smuggle illegal immigrants and they become swept into a horrible tragedy.

Maybe it’s more of a personal relevance because my father, husband and father-in-law are really into fishing and I spent my growing up years listening to fishing tales and dreams of returning from each trip with a full load of fish.. much like the crew members in this film. Based on the trailer, it seems like an intense, chair-gripping movie that was also, like all Korean films, very heartwarming all at the same time.

DON’T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2

image

Two former lovers find themselves irresistibly drawn back together, despite the fact that each of them is engaged to someone else.

I LOVE rom-coms and with a star-studded cast of Miriam Yeung, Louis Koo, Vic Chou and Daniel Wu, I believe this like most Hong Kong movies, is going to be nothing short of hilarious. I just did a quick Google and the reviews for this movie appears to be pretty positive! It should make a good date night pick!

KUNGFU JUNGLE

image

A martial arts instructor (Donnie Yen) working at a police academy gets imprisoned after killing a man by accident. But when a vicious killer (Wang Baoqiang) starts targeting martial arts masters, the instructor offers to help the police in return for his freedom.

HELLO. DONNIE YEN!!! Do you need any other reason to watch this? This one I think I’ll catch with my girlfriends instead so I can swoon without restrain hahaha.

There are also a couple of Chinese horror films coming up which I won’t mention because I want to sleep tonight (I’m typing this at midnight!! Fml…) But honestly, I watched the trailers on Saturday and I ended up forcing my dog to sleep with me with all the lights on that night -__-

In fact, I’m trying my best now NOT to think about them now but the more you try not to think about something… the harder it is!!

In other less scary news, I’ll be catching Black & White : The Dawn Of Justice this Wednesday and I’ll be back then with a more thorough review… stay tuned!
