Finally, some new stuff! I've added a full review of Horror Hotline and a quick opinion of Ocean's 11.

Also, I've added DVD cover art to a bunch of Cinemania reviews.

First, the cosmetic changes... "At the Cineplex" has been renamed "Coming Soon or Came and Went" so I include movies I might see a bit early through the auspices of Talk Cinema but will have a wide release.

Also, I brought some reviews over from my old site, Cinemama's Cinemania.

A Grand Day Out

OK, I finally got off my dead butt and assembled the survey results. Take a look.
Survey Results


Yes, I saw Harry Potter and here's what I thought. Also, here are the screen captures for Shaolin Soccer.

I have heard that Fulltime Killer is the Hong Kong nominee for the foreign language Oscar so I thought I better get my review, such as it is, up. Be sure to check out the screen shots. Do I think it is Oscar material? No, but I didn't think Gladiator was either. Do I think the academy will vote white like they always do? Yes. Also, I added another question to the survey and screen shots to Whispers of the Heart.

The Survey is now functional. However, there are no results as of yet. So, hurry up and sound off about the best and worst movies you've seen this year.


Today's entrees are La Cienaga and Tape. For dessert, there's Monsters, Inc.

I got a boat load of reviews to add from back in the day (September on) and I'm finally getting around to putting them in. Now that it's been and gone, here's the review for Liam. Also, my Bio is up and there's a capsule review of The One.

Today we have a full review of a new Wong Jing action comedy, My School Mate, the Barbarian, starring Nicholas Tse and Stephen Fung. Also my reaction to The Musketeer.

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Not Coming Soon. I'm starting out with a full review of Stephen Chiau's latest, Shaolin Soccer. If you are not familiar with Stephen Chiau, he has been called the Chinese Jim Carrey, but personally I think he's much funnier. Also capsule reviews of movies your cineplex and video store will be more likely to have.
