  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.
