On the lighter side-Movies- 7 Assassins (2013-Hong Kong)

Stolen gold is pursued by soldiers and others in this action packed Martial arts movie. If you like Martial arts (like me), you will enjoy it. Recommended with caution

On the lighter side-Movies-Princess and the Seven Kungfu Masters (2013-Hong kong)

Martial Arts comedy movie about you guessed it a princess and the seven kungfu masters trying to save her. Fun movie. Recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

A prequel to the first two shows how a family battles a supernatural entity. Better than the second one. Recommended for horror fans only.

On the lighter side-Movies-Lumberjack Man (2015)

Bloody horror comedy movie about a campsite invaded by a demon logger bent on killing the members of a church. Some hilarious moments but most bloody action. Recommended for fun

On the lighter side-Movies-High Kick Angels (2014-Japan)

A group of girls filming a martial arts movie in an abandoned school must battle their way out of it when the school is put in a lock down by criminals. Martial arts mayhem Japanese style. It is an okay movie, nothing special. Recommended with caution

On the lighter side-Movies-Tomorrowland (2015)-George Clooney

A special effects laden movie about two teenagers curious enough to explore a place that only exists in the mind. The first half of the movie, I did not know where the movie is going and the rest of it left me scratching my head. Not Recommended

On the lighter side¬-Movies-Inside Out (2015)-Animated

After a girl is uprooted from her town to move to a new one, her emotions tries to navigate her through her new life. Great animated movie both for adults and children. Highly recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-San Andreas (2015)-Dwayne Johnson

A massive earthquake rips through California where a rescue worker tries to save his wife and daughter trapped in the earthquake zone. Tense and very well done with great special effects. Recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-Terminator: Genisys (2015)-Arnold Schwarzenegger

Terminator is back in this tired series where you see John Connor sends a soldier to protect Sarah Connor to protect the future but complications arise. Although a good effort, it should be better not to make more of these and move on. Recommended with caution

On the lighter side-Movies-The Wrath of Vajra (2013-Hong Kong)

A Shaolin master vows revenge on people who have killed his brother in this dark Martial arts fantasy with good action work. Recommended with caution

On the lighter side-Movies-TrainWreck (2015)

A commitment phobic woman faces the prospect of falling in love with a good guy in this hit or miss movie. I don’t know how it made so much money but it is not funny as described by some sites. Not recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-The Gallows (2015)

A school stage play where an actor was hanged makes a revival 20 years after the tragedy with disastrous results. Despite my being not going to watch found footage I end up watching them anyway and then regret to write these. Not Recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-Ichi (2008)-Japan

A blind guitar play woman roams Japan and fends off Japanese Yakuza and criminals with excellent swordplay in this bloody Japanese action movie. Sometimes slow but makes up with goods sword action. Recommended
