hello, new member here >_< & i need your help!! i was on vacation in china back in 2004 & while at my grannies house i really enjoyed this tv series that i want to watch again because it brings back a lot of memories. so i was wondering if any of you could help me find the name of the tv series.

it's about a cop, i *think* the setting was in hk since the whole thing was in cantonese. it's a comedy & he's really really clumsy. he also has this cargo trench jacket thing on & i believe the title has something 'mystery' or mysteries' in it.

any help would be appreciated in finding the name of the series. thanks in advance..

Stephen Chow The Richest Actor in Hong Kong? o_O [Jan. 7th, 2007|05:57 pm]

Chow hot property

Friday, January 05, 2007

Who is likely to be named the richest actor in Hong Kong? While stars Jackie Chan Kong-sang and Chow Yun-fat come to mind for their multimillion dollar movie deals, for Stephen Chow, also known as Stephen Chiau Sing-chi, it has taken more than moviemaking to make it to the top.

Argua= bly the most successful comedian in Hong Kong movie history, Chow is reported to hold a property portfolio valued at more than HK$1.5 billion.

These include No10 Pollock's Path, The Peak, which Chow bought in 2004 for HK$320 million and a redeveloped shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui with an estimated market value of HK$310 million.

To Live [Nov. 29th, 2006|10:22 am]

[Current Mood |working]

I have assigning 3 films in my Intro to Chinese lanuguage and culture course (a college level January term course), the first of which is To Live (活着). I am trying to come up with an few questions to have the students think about while watching the movie that will hopefully help spark in-class discussion. (students will have the question on a hand-out and be required to write a short paragraph for each, and be ready to discuss it in the next class period.) I would really love any help or suggestions. Thank you.

Thoughts on Infernal Affairs [Nov. 29th, 2006|01:37 pm]
Chinese Movies

"Infernal Affairs" is the film I watched more then once and still want to watch again. I am very happy about the fact that the recent remake, "The Departed", was made skillfully by Martin Scorsese and is proven to be extremely successful all over the world. I am so glad about the fact that ideas and influence don't seem to go only in the direction from West to East anymore. If anything, especially as concerning Hollywood, the recent direction of ideas seems to be from East to West.

"Infernal Affairs" is a sleek, clever and stylish police story. But is it simply that? Like all of the best films or other works of fiction, "Infernal Affairs" goes onto the much deeper level.

Freedom. What is freedom? Where does it lie? Is it a set of circumstances around us or is it something we grow and carry inside? Full text of review and icons here

Tentatively titled 'A Hope', the film will star Chow as an astronaut who crash lands on a mysterious planet where he befriends a robot who can communicate with aliens.

Up-and-coming actress Zhang Yuqi will star as the android in question, while Chow's 'Shaolin Soccer' and 'Kung Fu Hustle' alumni Yuen Qiu
, Danny Kwok-kwan Chan and Tin Kai-man will also feature.

According to Screen Daily, 'A Hope' will shoot in China in August, giving Chow more time to work on the script for the eagerly anticipated 'Kung Fu Hustle 2'
