決戰食神 (Cook Up a Storm) (Blu-ray release 2017-4-13) is a Hong Kong Chinese New Year movie that mostly consists of a series of cooking competitions.  We have a great cast with a very weak screenplay, as usual.  There is some kind of unwritten nonsense rule in the competition regarding who can proceed to the next round.  Several subplots are underwritten and therefore unsatisfactory.  With these flaws corrected it might even be a good movie.
