On the lighter side-Movies-First Love (2019-Japan)-Becky, Bengal

A guy and a call girl try to survive a night in Tokyo from drug dealers and Police. A little bit slow than usual and not must action. Recommended with caution

On the lighter side-Movies-The Grandmaster (2013- Hong Kong-China)-Tony Leung, Zhang Ziyi

The story of the grand master who trained Bruce Lee lacks martial arts and is too emotional and slow to warrant a second look. I had a hard time to finishing it to the end as I was expecting more action. Available on Netflix. Not Recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-Ip Man 4: The Finale (2019- Hong Kong-China)-Donnie Yen, Scott Adkins

Ip Man, the Martial arts master travels to America to help his student in this uninspiring and week martial arts movie.  Too much emotion and less action. Recommended with caution

Another exciting adventure in the Jumanji game with action and comedy running side by side. Recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-Charlie’s Angels (2019)-Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska

Charlie’s Angels are called in to protect a guy who is being targeted for exposing a dangerous technology. Okay reboot but nothing news except for the story line and new faces. Recommended with caution

On the lighter side-Movies-Ellery Queen’s Penthouse Mystery (1941-B&W) – Ralph Bellamy, Margaret Lindsay

On the lighter side-Movies-Ashfall (Mount Baeddu) (2019-Korean) - Byung-Hun Lee, Jung-woo Ha

A New York detective races against time to uncover the killers of cops in this entertaining movie. Recommended

On the lighter side-Movies-I see you (2019) – Helen Hunt, Jon Tenney

On the lighter side-Movies-Time to hunt (2020-Korea) – Lee Jehoon, Jae-hong Ahn

On the lighter side-Movies-The Thirteenth Guest (1932-B&W)) –Ginger Rogers, Lyle Talbot
