Horror's Head Honcho

I am embarrassed to say I did not even know Mr. Blum's name. but I did know his movies. This is entertaining. My list of favorite horror movies of all time will follow later this week. I  love Halloween (the pop culture version, no real affinity for the historical Halloween).

Grandmaster: Never Enough Ip Man


**** of 5 stars. Beautiful cinematography, soundtrack unusual and powerful, fight scenes esoteric-not wuxia at all, Leung is perfect, though Ziyi Zhang almost steals the show.
