The title of the movie is a play on the chorus of McDonald’s jingle, I’m lovin’ it. Superstar Aaron Kwok stars in this movie about McRefugees, along with Miriam Yeung and Cheung Tat-ming. McRefugees, by the way, is what the homeless who sleep at McDonald’s restaurants every night in Hong Kong are called. Aaron Kwok plays Bowen, the glue that binds all the homeless together, their de-facto leader. To guarantee authenticity and accuracy, scriptwriter Ja Poon and director Danny Wong volunteered as social workers working with the homeless.
For his performance, comedian Cheung Tat-ming won Best Supporting Actor at the Hong Kong Film Awards in 2019.

The original Halloween came to us in 1978. Two years ago, the franchise brought Scream Queen and star of the original Halloween, Jamie Lee Curtis, back to face off with Michael Myers. This is the Halloween franchise’s answer to Nightmare on Elm Street’s New Nightmare. In this movie, Jamie Lee Curtis’s Laurie Strode is older, wiser and worn-down by all her encounters with The Shape, Michael Myers. After a bunch of failed marriages and strained relationships, she finally re-emerges from her shell as a matter of necessity. Myers has escaped while being transferred to a maximum security prison from a mental institution and he's coming for her... Again.
