Yesterday I knocked out eight or so quick hits of movies I enjoyed in 2019. I should have mentioned in that first post that I’m talking about movies I watched in that year, not necesarily movies that came out in said year. If that were the case, I probably wouldn’t have much to write about as someone who mainly gets their entertainment from Netflix (digital AND disc, like an O.G.), Amazon Video, the library and Hulu! Let’s get back to it!
Man Of Tai Chi not only marks Keanu Reeves’ return to the world of martial arts movies, but also his first outing as a director. In the film, he plays an evil puppetmaster type figure trying to see if he can corrupt a supposed man of peace played by Tiger Hu Chen. The film hits VOD and iTunes on September 27th and select theaters on October 1st.
The second season of Arrow looks to get pretty epic with the Hood trying to fix the destruction seen at the end of the CW show’s first season while also dealing with all kinds of comic book based characters like Black Canary, Bronze Tiger and Amanda Waller. The new season premieres on October 9th.
According to Asian Movie Pulse, HBO’s working on a series called Serangoon Road set in 60s Singapore dealing with gangs, spies and other shady groups. They’re shooting the series in Singapore and Indonesia right now. Looks pretty intriguing.
