I probably won't watch more than 2-4. I have already seen 暗戰. All of the others are new to me. Any I should put at the top of my list, or avoid? Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

I would avoid 大闹天宫 because it's a big special effects extravaganza that will look terrible on one of those small inflight screens. But then I would avoid it anyway because even on the big screen in 3D I found it deeply underwhelming.

Looks like the one you watched was the best rated one. I watched 白日焰火 and I think it's ok...

Can't agree with this. Rather than being a bit of fun, it takes itself way too seriously and is too faithful to the original. Total CGI snoozefest. If you want a bit of fun, try the 2013 prequel, the two A Chinese Odyssey films from the 90s, or the classic TV show from the 80s.

 

edit: Also — seeing as I'm obviously bias towards Stephen Chow :P — you can't go wrong with 鹿鼎记. A comedy classic.

Well I suppose the memory of the 80s tv series tainted my choice. That was a awesome tv show, would watch it again if it came on.
