the boys didnt like redcliff, said it was technically unsound and that plot was awfully weak, not to mention its historical inaccuracy (that coming from chinesehighboys who read the hardcore chinese novels so im not going to doubt them) but i must say i Really Liked It ! like after every good flick, i needed time aplenty to ruminate after leaving the cinema, but even with the boys thrashing it beside me i kept going through select scenes in my head. the cinematics blew, and minus the few cheesy scenes, this is one blockbuster which i wouldnt mind watching and rewatching whenever i feel like the mood for a feel-gooder, just because it straddles the line between thoughtful and crowd-pleasing.
i hate linzhiling/xiaoqiao and have a shameless fondness towards sunquan, zhaozilong and that japanese guy- ganxing, i think his name was. it also felt as if xiaoyanzi was in the show so i really missed yongqi.
