  1. Detective Chinatown 2 is showing where I am and I’m super excited. >.<. This is the one I wanted to see the most. It got a raving review from the guy who had identical views as me as for A Better Tomorrow 2018.

    Also kind of want to see Monster Hunt 2 depending on reviews (I liked the first one but the trailer for the second one looks boring). The trailer for the Monkey King 3 gave me second-hand embarrassment when I saw it in theaters.

    1. Strongly agree with the above.

      I also want to see Operation Red Sea, mostly because it comes from Operation Mekong’s director – story wise, I think it’ll be better than the jingoistic Wolf Warrior 2.

    2. Is there a link for that review of Detective Chinatown 2? I’m curious about that show. Despite not liking some of the jokes in Detective Chinatown, I found the show hillarious . The story was interesting too, plus I love the case . And I love the ending credit where everyone was singing and dancing together, including the villains :p

        1. Thanks!
          I’ve read the review, and problem is with the lewd jokes. Glad that they dial it down in the 2nd part. The review sounds amazing, and now I’m looking forward for it too.
