Movie Review: Painted Skin II - The Resurrection [☝]Saturday, January 18, 2014
I saw this movie being played in the bus on my way to work one day. It was perfect timing because it was just the beginning of the film. I dunno what pulled me into this movie - the effects, the atmosphere maybe? I just found myself fully absorbed watching the movie that I had to unwillingly snap myself out of it because well I already have to get off the bus.

I love how this movie is loaded with so much girl power! The main characters are such strong and beautiful women, and not to mention great actors too! The emotions are all in the eyes. It was powerful. The despair, the longing, and the aching are all there.

This movie is such a sweet escape from reality. I love the story, the characters, the costumes, the special effects, and the overall feel of the movie. I would have loved to watch it again and again, but I just find some of the scenes a little creepy (especially the "exchange of bodies" ceremony).
