[Recap] Never-Before-Seen Scenes in “Our Times”

I remember earlier this month/year that particularly one cut scene in “Our Times” became a hot topic on Weibo thanks to Joe Chen for reposting it hihi. It was none other than her cut scene with Jerry Yan. It was posted almost everywhere but I insisted on waiting for my DVD just so I wouldn’t feel like I spent a lot of money just to see it haha!

As promised in my previous Our Times-related post, I took up the courage to understand what’s been happening in the cut scenes without subtitles. I categorized it as a recap because I’ll be dissecting all the almost 12 minutes of (11:42 to be exact!) cut scenes from the film. This time, I have a better quality of screencaps thanks to my beloved DVD ❤

Unboxing the “Our Times” Deluxe Edition DVD

I may have mentioned in my previous posts regarding “Our Times” aka my all-time favorite Taiwanese film that I pre-ordered the DVD last year. My long wait’s over as I have finally received my precious DVD today! I knew what I was going to receive but I was just beyond happy to receive the package. I’m not really sure how people create an “unboxing” blog post but I’ll give it a shot here 😉

Comparing Taiwan’s Most Successful Films: “You are the Apple of My Eye” vs. “Our Times”

Hello 2016! Hello readers! I’m here today to give you a comparative analysis on Taiwan’s all-time smash-hit films from 2011 and last year. Having rewatched both films recently, I decided to write a post about these successful films in detail and also my theories on why they turned out to be everyone’s favorites.

As much as I love having a lot of readers, I do recommend that you read this only when you have seen both films. If not, then I hope this post will make you want to watch them (or at least one) and enjoy as much as I did.

Movie Monday: A Whole Lot of Firsts

I was supposed to create a year-end post of all the Asian movies that I watched this year but I realized that it might actually be already 2016 and I still won’t be able to finish this post haha! (I have watched 46 this year alone and counting).

Most people are into Asian dramas more than their films but there are times that I prefer the latter because it does not take so much time compared to the former. It would also be a waste if I just keep watching them and not write reviews about it. Thus, the birth of this segment!

In this first #MovieMonday, I’ll be reviewing five movies (3 Taiwanese and 2 Chinese) which deals with the theme: “Firsts”.  Go read more to find out!
