Mystery of the Twin Swords II
Mystery of the Twin Swords II 1992
     

Great follow up to Mystery of Twin Swords 2.

Cao Thanh Thanh ends up getting kidnapped again. Roger and Dicky end up having to set off to find the amazing ax to set her free of her ankle bracelet, which gets possessed and continues to grow.

Nguyet (Dicky Cheung) ends up developing a love interest with Rain who is actually part bird-species due to her mom. It's interesting because their love keeps getting obstructed by their destiny. I believe they do not end up together.

Another side twist Gordan Lau's role (Yen Phien Thien) who was a notorious player in the first one comes back and ends up getting "whipped" by the pocket-picker prostitute. Lol. She does all these funny things to keep him to herself. I believe he turns into a good guy and fights off the bad guys in here, instead of being a con-artist scammer like the first one.

Another spin off from LOCH. I thought it was okay. It wasn't spectacular. I'm positive the character background is not true to the novel. But TVB but an interesting twist on it. It was hard watching this because my favorite Eastern Heretic is Kent Tong. Lol. David Chiang I thought was too old.. to be playing young Wong Yuerk Si

One of the first series I've watched as a kid. Loved Roger and Carol pairing. It had a lot of comedic aspects because of Dicky. I enjoyed this. ITS A MUST WATCH!!

You see the two brother's relationship grow as the movie progress and when they find out that they both are mortal enemies you see them battle with their inner self because they don't want to have this battle. In the end Roger wins but because Father Heaven feels sorry for the two he allows for Dicky to be revived. Part two is even more funnier with the same cast.

The Final Combat

This was a quirky movie. Very comedic. Who can forget the lines, "Lets have a seat, drink some tea and eat some buns." LOL. I love this series as it had great fighting scenes and comedic.

The New Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber

I liked this until Truong Vo Ky grew up. I loved Tony in here.. He's adorable. It has a great plot. One of my favorite HSDS. I believe I saw one with Alex Su (SP?) he wasn't as cute as Tony. Even though they were made in different decades. I prefer Tony's and I was born in 1990. So it goes to show not all CGI is important.

....... And then Kitty's role got annoying. -___- Lol. I sat through it because I don't like not finishing movies.

Yang's Saga
Yang's Saga 1985
     

I loved this series because it had a lot of cameos by a lot of the "popular" actors and actresses. I liked how everyone was on the same side for once. It got confusing because I kept forgetting who was who (I watched the Vietnamese versions) so all the surnames and given names got all mixed up. Also I think at one point the couples were getting all mixed up as well. Haha. That's one bad thing about casting all-star casts.

Overall it was a great series and had a great ending.

The Legend of Dik Ching

I liked this movie BECAUSE of Miu. I didn't really like the pairing with Kitty Lai. I actually liked him with the other actress that ends up dying. Sadly after she dies I do feel the film drags on. The ending wasn't all that either. He rides off in the sunset. Ha. Cheesy.

The Flying Fox of Snowy Mountain
The Flying Fox of Snowy Mountain 1985
     

One of my favorites. A lot of twists and turns in this movie. It's like "JUST SAY IT ALREADY." But the cast was a great cast. Great fight scenes as well. I liked it.

The Fearless Duo
The Fearless Duo 1984
     

Warning: The theme song is super catchy. It'll get stuck in your head. I swear.

The pairing of Barbara Yung and Michael Miu proved to be really great on-screen. No wonder they were cast together as a couple, so often.

I thought it was a cute movie. You see the two main characters overcome obstacles to be with each other. The ending was perfect. It's a must watch. There's a mix of comedy in there as well.

The costumes were very cute.

The New Adventures of Chor Lau Heung

From the other posts you can tell I love Michael Miu & Barbara Yung pairings. This one was one of my favorite because it had a great story line. I loved the little side plots that were ongoing.

Loved the actors in here. My favorite had to be Chen Wing Chun he made this movie even more funny with his drunken wisdom!

Also the costumes were really nice in here! :)

United We Stand

I love a Barbara Yung and Michael Miu series! They had such great chemistry, I wonder why they didn't end up together!! Anyone know where to buy this in Vietnamese?

The Return of the Condor Heroes
The Return of the Condor Heroes 1983
     

I think I continued to watch this adaption because they bought back the Veteran actors (The Five Greats + Chow Ba Tong) in here. I didn't really like Idy's acting but I enjoyed Andy Lau. The costumes in here were great. theme song was catchy. I'm sure most people my age would not enjoy this series because there isn't enough CGI.

Overall, it's a great adaption of ROCH. One of the best ones I've seen.

The Legend of the Condor Heroes
The Legend of the Condor Heroes 1982
     

Also one of my favorites. I have the Vietnamese version, and the only thing I dislike is when they dubbed Mu Nianci singing in Vietnamese when Yang Kang dies! That's the only thing I dislike! However, other than that the dubbing is really good.

Great plot line, great actors, great chemistry, and pretty costumes. :) I loved the chemistry between Felix and Mei-ling. Although I'm quite biased due to seeing so many Miu & Mei-ling on-screen together.

One of my favorite series to rewatch.
P.S. I wasn't even born in the 80's and I loved this!
