    China Box Office: Local Titles 'Youth' and 'Dunjia' Dominate Weekend

    Four Reasons Why 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Isn't One for the Ages

This animated [...]

    Film Review: 'The Thousand Faces of Dunjia'

    Bloated with visual effects, martial artists combat and amorous shenanigans, the one thing missing in “The Thousand Faces of Dunjia” is a comedic touch, which might have made this elaborate blockbuster more appealing.
