Hong Jong

That's where my favourite films came from. :)
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

All of my matchups were of Hong Kong films, except the pending one, which is Taiwan vs. China.

Thor's silence is worrisome.  Spring in my Home Town vs. Rice People might need a new home.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Movies watched, verdict coming.

It will not be surprising.

If you don't hear from Thor, I can probably grab these for next week. Are we looking good otherwise with claimed pairs?

So I have on half of my dictation but I have no idea when the second half will be in because Netflix is bugging out right now and won't update my queue.

I'll probably just go ahead and watch it and post my thoughts on that film and hope the second one arrives in a timely manner. We'll see.

This is the only matchup I'm worried about.  Spring in my Home Town might be torture for you, though.  Have you ever seen a Tarkovsky film?

I have not. Sounds like I should be the watcher of last resort though. I have no problem being the one to stick the dagger in it if it comes to that. I have been liking far too many films lately. ;D
