What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Based on one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature of the same name, Stephen Chow’s ‘Journey To The West’ is a contemporary remake of the misadventures of a Buddhist monk as he makes a pilgrimage from China to India.

Ji Wen Ja

I had several dreams last night but I ended up forgetting most of them after waking up and going back to sleep several times without voice recording them.

I also tried to make myself sleep longer this morning, which failed, and that also caused me to forget even more of my dreams.

So now all that I can remember of my dreams from last night is barely part of one dream that was inspired by the film Journey To The West: Conquering The Demons (which was probably a film in the lists of films that the man in this dream was supposed to watch), and it involved a man with whitish-colored skin who had some books and/or films and/or video games et cetera that were probably in Mandarin.

The man had things organized in a certain order and he planned on reading/watching/playing/et cetera those things in order, but his list kept growing without him reading/watching/playing/et cetera any thing on the list.

He acted like he knew Mandarin, but I assumed that he was only faking and that he did not know Mandarin so that is probably why he was not reading/watching/playing/et cetera anything on his list.

I think that this man wore traditional Chinese clothing, maybe martial arts clothing, and maybe he was involved in Chinese martial arts as well (maybe he was a teacher or student).

There was probably an old man from China in the dream, maybe someone he knew, and I remember hearing the name Ji Wen Ja but I am not sure who in the dream (if anyone) was named Ji Wen Ja.

The only Ji Wen Ja I know is a character from the video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.

I am not sure if I was in this dream or not but someone and/or I probably started to question if the man was ever going to start with the items on his list, this person and/or I possibly also hinted that we did not think that the man really knew Mandarin, and the man probably became defensive and claimed that he did know Mandarin but he gave no proof of this.

I remember hearing someone reading words in probably Mandarin, the man probably tried to act like he understood the words, but it seemed that he did not really understand them and that he was faking.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

Journey To The West Conquering The Demons

My dream from last night was inspired by a Chinese fantasy comedy film that I watched last night called Journey To The West: Conquering The Demons (Journey To The West).

The version of the film that I watched was dubbed in Mandarin and subtitled in English, but unfortunately the subtitles were too small.
