Some divide using religion, some stands divided because of beliefs but in the face on onslaught of our very way of life and liberties, let us all stand united in the face of humanity and compassion, both of which transcends religion and beliefs. Whatever you beliefs or religious faith, come on, be loud and be clear on your condemnation of the actions of those islamist terrorists. It isn't a criticism against Islam or Muslims. Calling them islamist terrorists are simply identifying them as the very group who misuses the name of Allah the merciful. Whatever they did is not merciful but contrary to the very fundamental teachings of all religions; be good, be kind, be generous. I despair at how many big nations are not taking a clear stand against ISIS. It is a hydra and the only way to stop it is to destroy it, eliminate it and then break them. It will be difficult but perhaps the world will unite in the face of not only adversity, but a murderous faction consists of psychopaths who kills not for their so called religious faith, since they too kill others who professes the same faith but they kill simply we have let our guards down. They are not above using young children as suicide bombers and I can never understand why anyone can be brainwashed to believe such crazy ideologies that goes beyond their religious faith. God in any form will never ever condone such actions. Speak up! Speak loud! Speak clearly! There was 9-11. Now there is Paris. In between so much more. How much more of this abuse, this slap, this insulting derogatory F.U must we stomach before we admit by our reluctance and disunity we have given them the advantage? Fellow friends, especially Muslims, time to stand up and make your dissents be heard. What is there to fear? The world is behind you. Clearly ISIS does not represent you. Instead of fearing reprisals, stand with humanity and have courage. Faith lies with those who are brave and compassionate. Light always triumph over darkness. I believe that. I believe in my Muslim friends. I believe ISIS can be subdued. For those who thinks any action now is vengeance, it is not. It is uprooting the grass. It stopped being personal. It is now global necessity. Like how you eradicate small pox or whatever disease that affects the young, the old, the infirm, the healthy, of any race, gender and religion, ISIS is that disease. Any religious fanatics is that disease. Some fanatics may not join ISIS but if they praise the jihadi johns, they might as well get that membership. This is not a rant against islam, be very clear about it. I condemn islamist extremist terrorists and if you don't, I see your true character. It is a simple equation.

Welcome to Point2Entertainment, basically a blog about everything opinion based. Been here since about a decade ago under different names so this is like the nth template change. Old friends may notice I am a bit slow on reviews these days but hey, from time to time there are some added, whether by me or someone else. Nowadays this blog is more of a "reaction" blog; my reaction to everything I see, feel, experience. Nothing too personal though but it is still "reviews...comments...opinions". New features I like is that navigation menu (rather pretty), this tabbed menu (rather cool) and the best of all, the Table of Contents pages which you must see to know what I mean! It just makes posts so much easier to search! For old posts (some 1000 of them!), do check out Archived Blog which is messy but functional. Feel free to comment, whether using the Post A Comment link or Shoutbox. Any reviews? Send them to me! To all those who stumbled in, welcome! To returning chatty readers, post away! To silent readers, welcome back and do post sometimes! Thank you & I hope you will enjoy my humble small (hopefully) gorgeous functional blog!

What I don't like is why blur out certain parts of Cha Seung Won? Well I looked and looked and then I realise the mosaic covers are to cover his tattoos. Seriously? And originally the "son" is played by another actor who was edited out completely from episode 1 of Season 1 because he had a scandal; for not paying tax. And that tax scandal wasn't his fault, probably overlooked and he had fully paid his tax. I don't get the small whiff of scandal and poof, edited out.
Like how they joked in The New Journey To The West; gambling habit is scandal. Fine. Did not pay tax a scandal. Fine. Divorced from wife, also a scandal. Breaking up with girlfriend is also a scandal.

Cast-Character & Synopsis
A SHORT INTROWhen was the last time I ever said "WOW! So many people! Can't remember the names!!" for a TVB series? Never until now.Anyway no recap. But I am doing a "Anthony Wong Chau Sang Flawless Acting Watch" which basically means I am watching him in every episode hoping each episode he exceeds my expectations with one singular moment of greatness. Just one, I am not greedy. Like Francis Ng, Anthony Wong gracing our TV screen is a blessing for all. He may not be a handsome guy or young or the slightest bit humble or friendly, but man can he act! Subtle and yet everything. Wayne Lai next to him seems a tad amateurish! But just a tad. Delicious combination. Kent Tong is the weakest of the 3 but even he is ok since he never was famous for his acting (more famous as the man who drove Barbara Yung to suicide even if that is not accurate at all or maybe the love rat and even that is also not quite true). Anthony wasn't always a great actor, like Sean Lau and Francis Ng and Tony Leung and even Stephen Chow, they all started at TVB and they were mediocre actors once but with great potential even if they weren't exactly heartthrobs level. They weren't Andy Lau. But look at Anthony now! I wasn't planning on watching this series but I was hooked after episode 1, simply because of the level of performances I see and also so many people!Hopefully the story justifies the level of talent we see onscreen.So let's begin with my "Anthony Wong Chau Sang Flawless Acting Watch". I hope I can fine screencaps but somehow I don't see those bothering with screencaps will ever watch this show let alone screencapture his scenes.
But other than that, wow... Wayne is indeed a rabid dog!
Anyway Anthony is still going strong, alternating between smiling to showing that disgust on his face, all subtly done. Best?
Three tycoons having a meeting where Anthony informed them the opium had to be taken by the central government's guards and he found out before that someone stole the opium and it was some commander (from the war lords) who took it who had info from someone... and he was casually pointing to Wayne...
Brilliant moment, how casual and yet how obvious and everyone's expression was simply fantastic.
Maybe too early to tell, and some dodgy editing and then there's Myolie but overall, very entertaining so I am enjoying it before it goes insane. Even Ron is good.

First Impressions and full episodic thoughts from Episodes 1 to 20 can be found HERE. This present post will have my brief write ups from episodes 20 onwards.
No one dies except those stupid admirals who tried to kill perfect Man Ho. What a stupid ending. I jumped a few episodes so I still don't get how come cool killer Bowie is suddenly nice guy Bowie and whether whatever he did in the first few episodes really happened. I mean he did shoot those people. I am thinking if I should watch the last few episodes. I am fed up with this series. This series don't deserve Ruco, the perfect specimen in this series filled with so much flaws.
I can only say skip unless you love Ruco because this has his best performance todate and proves why he must be cast in a male centric palace intrigue series and yet skip because he is supported by such weak casts and even weaker story that in the end it feels like he is the only guy who turned up having done his homework and even helped complete the workbook for the teacher.
Yes, the story is THAT bad.
