Due to large amount of information regarding the Grandmaster News, Articles, Reviews, Pictures, etc... Mixed with various languages: English, Chinese... In addition to reviews published during different time period: between Jan-Feb, 2013 to Jul-Aug, 2013 in anticipation for the movie release in different time zone (country, cities, area)

In anticipation of the release of Grandmaster in US, heavily populated with English speaking people (maybe it's a rumor) - the Topics that were published in the forums are being moved to more appropriate places. If you found your topic are not where it was before, look around. It's either in the News section, Movie section, or Article section. These areas are often interchangeable.

The Grandmaster Movie News, Information, Reviews are now gathered at the Movie section of the forum, with a few hits and misses. At least it's somewhat all in one place, for now.

Thanks for your understanding.
