Avatar Fever, Catch It Series (China Hush)

With a stellar cast and entertaining storyline that weaves together action and drama, the film should do well with younger audience members who like to view the underworld through rose-tinted glasses.

A romance as pretty and immaterial as a swirl of bubbles.

A love story between an elderly couple that is tender without being schmaltzy.

Limited US release begins this Friday

On the popular movie site Mtime.com, it scored a 3.8 out of 10 in user-submitted reviews, compared to 9.4 for Avatar. The Global Times gave it a 4 out of 10, calling it “thoughtless and mind-numbing.”…

Han Han, one of China’s most popular writers who is widely viewed as a key voice of the country’s youth generation, gave it a two on his popular blog, calling it an entertainment, educational, and business failure.

Theme Song

Andy Lau: Married life is ordinary

He did not discuss Choo much during the interview but described former co-star Cherie Chung as an ideal wife, the newspaper said.

He starred with her in 1991’s Zodiac Killers, her last film before she married advertising guru Mike Chu and retired from entertainment.

At the time, she did not know how to cook and studied cookbooks on the set, he said.

‘She had a cookbook with her every day and she said, ‘I’m going to be a wife, I should be able to cook’.
