The good stuff
A sprawling mix of comedy, fantasy and martial arts. It's one of the quintessential Hong Kong film of the 90s, one of Stephen Chow's clear highlights and one of Jeffrey Lau's best films. A hoot from start to finish, incredibly paced, full of bonkers comedy, insane creatures and nifty settings. Great fun.

Just Another Margin
Lock Me Up, Tie Him Down
Fun and quirky little thriller. A less overt comedy from Jeffrey Lau this time around, but apparently that's not really an issue for this seasoned director. Solid performances from Vivian Hsu and Bo-lin Chen, pleasant pacing and snappy editing make this an entertaining film. A lovely and likable filler flick.

Bonkers Hong Kong comedy. I do have to admit I liked it better the first time around, the film is kinda sloppy in its execution. Still, the pacing is insane, the jokes are crazy and Lau drummed up some familiar faces who have no problem making a complete fool out of themselves.
Kung Fu League
Jeffrey Lau is back and he's still doing the kind of comedy that made him famous. This time around we're getting a Grandmasters parody, with 4 of Hong Kong's prime martial arts talents reuniting in the present and kicking some ass for the kid that summoned him. It's silly, it's a bit random, but it's entertaining.
