Introduction I discovered Hong Kong cinema over 20 years ago when Channel 4 showed a series of Hong Kong ghost stories which included screenings of Rouge and Encounters of the spooky kind. I watched them all and wanted more,next up was Jonathan Ross' Incredibly strange film show on Tsui Hark where they showed a clip of Chow Yun Fat hiding guns in plant pots from A better tomorrow and the shootout that follows. My mind was blown there and then but the thing that made me a fan forever more was seeing a trailer on a palace video release for The killer. Ever since I have been watching and spending far too much money on HK related goodies (and the kit to watch them on). The blog is somewhere to put my thoughts on my HK passion, a passion that refuses to die even though HK cinema is struggling at the moment.
Interests HK movies, Asian movies, other movies, comic books, good tv, home cinema kit and technology, cricket, football
Favorite Movies Too many to list but Johnnie To's The mission, A hero never dies, Election, Jean Pierre Melville's Le samourai, Army of shadows, Le cercle rouge, Wong Kar Wai's Chungking express, Ashes of time, John Woo's The killer, A bullet in the head, Kurosawa's Seven samurai and far too many more to mention.
