Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays everyone. It's been a bit of a busy month with all the holidays. I'm also currently splitting my reviewing duties between Asian Cinema Drifter and www.welovecult.com, so if you are interested in any non-Asian film reviews, that would be the place to check out. Anywho, I've just added a review for Yuen Woo-ping's Wing Chun. More to come soon!

Die Bad review

And by foreseeable future, I meant a year and a half. But won't worry, reviews will be a bit more regular now... about 1 or 2 a week, so stick around. As for all that database business, we're putting that on hold. Kind of too much to manage. And the main point of this site was always reviews, so we'll be back to focusing on those.

A new review added

The good news is a review for A Tale of Two Sisters has just been added. The unfortunate news is that due to life getting in the way as usual, Asian Cinema Drifter will be on temporary hiatus for the foreseeable future. The site will remain online so our current reviews are still accessible, but there won't be any updates for a bit. Sorry guys and thanks for sticking with us.

Yup, still here.

Hello to our loyal visitors. Just a reminder that we're still here building Asian Cinema Drifter. It takes a long time to add every movie ever to our database, but we are working on it, so stick with us. A plethora of reviews will be coming soon after we finish. Feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions about the site!

Database assemble!

Sorry about the lack of reviews for today. We just started building our database so I have been busy adding tons of movie pages to the site. Eventually, we'll have a very solid set of all the Asian film listings you could want, so stay tuned.

Three more reviews

Greetings visitors, I've uploaded three more reviews today: Project A, Dachimawa Lee and The Wild Wild Rose. Looking at that side panel, I feel like I've been reviewing too many good movies and classics lately. As great as that is, I weirdly miss tearing into some poor unsuspecting film. Perhaps that will be soon, we'll see.

A couple classics

Two wu-xia classics: Come Drink with Me and Golden Swallow have both been reviewed. Yay.

So pat yourself on the back if you said Way of the Dragon. I applaud your ability to use wikipedia. Also, there is a review for Crush and Blush up. More reviews coming in on Wednesday.

So I've been adding reviews this week, just haven't been making an actual news post. But as you can see... Okinawa Rendez-vous, Swing Girls, Love and Pop, The Big Boss and Fist of Fury have all been added. I'm sure Bruce Lee fans can guess what's next. For everyone else, it's yet another exciting mystery to discuss for hours with your friends until my next update.
