SIMON SAYS: LOVE IN THE BUFF Redeems China Lion

For a few months now, China Lion Entertainment has been better in theory than in practice. Until this week and with the notable exceptions of some interesting but inconsistent melodramas like "Aftershock" and "Love in Space," China Lion had yet to release a film worth recommending without serious reservations.

SIMON SAYS: Celebrate Chinese New Year with these blockbusters

This weekend is Chinese Lunar New Year, a cultural landmark that even some of my Chinese friends needed to be reminded is almost upon us. One way you can tell that the holiday is impending is to look for Chinese films at your local movie theater. In the same way that a crop of big budget Bollywood premieres are perennially released in time for autumn’s Diwali festivities, so too are a number of studio-produced would-be Chinese blockbusters released in time for the new year. But blink and you'll miss ‘em: there are only two Chinese films being released at AMC theater chains.
