Happy Year of the Sheep!
In honor of the Lunar New Year, we
present to you a (poorly) Photoshoped
image of Ekin Cheng and the
Pleasant Goat from the Pleasant Goat
film series. We own none of these images
but we used them anyway. The Internet,
everybody! If you must know, the Ekin
Cheng image comes from an
advertisement for fish oil.

34th Hong Kong Film Award
Nominations announced
We're a couple of weeks late. but the full list of Hong Kong Film Award Nominations has been announced and it's pretty, uh, interesting. Well, something has to get nominated, we suppose.

Also, nine reviews have been added to the site. Sanney Leung reviews Pang Ho-Cheung's Women Who Flirt while some other guy writes all the other ones, including looks at Lunar New Year flicks Triumph in the Skies and An Inspector Calls. Reviews of other Lunar New Year films, like 12 Golden Ducks, From Vegas to Macau II and Dragon Blade will happen later. Our attempts to be timely are only partially successful.

See you at our next update, probably in March or April.

21st Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards announced
The results of the yearly Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards were just announced and you can find the full list here.

Shockingly, LoveHKFilm.com film reviewer Kozo was accepted as a member of the Hong Kong Critics Society in late 2014. He helped to determine this year's winners, which means if you don't like the results, you can partially blame him! It could be a win-win for some of you.

Featured Review


Louis Koo

Triumph in the Skies
After two hit drama series, TVB goes for a box office blockbuster with a Triumph in the Skies movie – that’s awesome for fans! Whoops, maybe not. Like the second of the Triumph TV dramas, the film does away with existing relationships to add new romances. However, the male characters get to return, while the women die offscreen (the lead in the first Triumph, Myolie Wu, died before the sequel but came back anyway as an unrelated doppelganger) or are simply forgotten. The latter is the case for the movie; when we last left the stars of the drama Triumph in the Skies II, the big conflict was which Skylette Airlines pilot Holiday (Fala Chen) would choose. Would it be righteous dork Sam Tong (Francis Ng) or suave ladykiller Jayden “Captain Cool” Koo (Julian Cheung)? Holiday eventually decided, but it’s not like it matters. In the big-screen follow-up, Holiday is absent while Sam is instantly attracted to rock star TM (Sammi Cheng) and Captain Cool starts a whirlwind affair with mysterious party girl Kika (Amber Kuo). What gives? Is Holiday on holiday? (more)
