Paper Marriage is decent mate Sammo fights Dick Wei and Billy Chow plus Maggie Cheung is in it too..

Stanley Kubrick\'s adaptation of
Arthur C \'spaceman\' Clarke\'s 2001 is a classic.

I remember watching it with my dad for the first time when I was about 5 or 6 years old on videotape

It freaked me out when Hal9000 turned off the crew\'s life support machines that was dark man that really scared me ;*O

and what was suprising that it was a U certificate :|(

Kung fu mistress. I didn\'t like this movie : Cheng Pei Pei has only short scenes and Kara Hui plays a silly girl who spends her time shouting and playing as she was a baby !

The only good thing in this movie are the fights she offers to us. The rest is a waste of time.



Hell\'s windstaff : very good movie. Pai Piao is excellent in it and the fights are great.

I just watched
ChineseMidnightExpress(1997)

Tony Leung Chiu Wai plays a journalist who is framed by a corrupted policeman and sentenced to a 3 year stretch in Prison,
Ng Man Tat plays amiable prisoner
and Ben Lam Kwok Bun plays a particularly sadistic screw who makes life difficult for the cons.
Ben Lam he was good as a treacherous bad guy in Return To A Better Tomrrow and also as a villian in Police Story2

Not as good for me as
Ringo Lam\'s Prison On Fire but still entertaining enough.

I saw The Great Dictator with Charlie Chaplian and he makes stirring speech at the end...

Also saw Million Dollar Baby that film is emotive ;*O

I\'d like to see
Hell\'s windstaff SaritaLinda
I\'ve heard it is held in high esteem by lots of fans :)

Been pretty busy recently but trying to catch up with films.

First I watched No Compromise(1989) with Danny Lee and Do Do Cheng
Its a gritty violent cop drama produced by Charles Heung.
David Lam Wai(Long Arm Of The Law & Project A 2) plays a mainland criminal with his wife committing arm robberies all over Hong Kong which finally culminates to a showdown, Shing Fui On , Wu Ma and Ken Lo are supporting cast)

The Deadly Duo (1971) with David Chiang and Ti Lung
I have to admit I found this film rather slow going but enjoyed the action.
For me Bolo Yeung stole the show.

The Savage Five (1974)
I absolutely loved this film a group of bandits take over a small town and hold the residents at ransom.
David Chiang , Chen Kuan Tai , Ti Lung , Danny Lee and Kong Do were all excellent as their characters and the action didn\'t disappoint either.
Classy ending with a great soundtrack |:o

I finally got round to finding Cantonese versions of The Young Vagabond(1985) and The Lady Is Boss (1983)

The Young Vagabond I liked with Wong Yu and Gordon Liu\'s Tiger style and generally enjoyed most of the film but felt abit let down with the final confrontation :|(

Really Really liked The Lady Is Boss with Pops and The Mayor\'s showdown.
Personally I preferred this to My Young Auntue this film had everything for me
Great cast , excellent action and humour.

I\'ve got a few films in my watch pile
Bandits From Shantung , The Deadly Breaking Sword , The Boxer From The Temple,
The Shadow Boxer,Rivals Of Kung Fu ,Magnificent Wanderers, The Convict Killer.

I dont have any idea what any of these are like?
Any suggestions to what I should watch first?

Also may pick up A Deadly Secret and Heroes Shed No Tears any good?

My wife recently recommended
The Revenge of
The Green Dragons(2014)
she watched in the cinema
executively produced by Martin Scorsese apparently based on true events in New York in the late 1980\\\'s within the Triads.

As for me I\\\'ve been catching up with Old School flims I hadnt seen before.

The Hot The Cool and The Vicious
I really liked this with flash legs , Wong Tao and Tommy Lee I really liked tue southern fist style

after that I tuned into Phantom Kung Fu with
Wong Tao again
some nice action crazy bad guy who rips off pidgeons heads lol

the next film I watched was The Bone Crushing Kid
some lovely training sequences and awesome final fight with James Tien.

Lastly I got round to seeing the highly revered
Shaolin Invincible Sticks
I enjoyed it a nice cohesive plot full of characters and quality action!

has anyone seen anything good lately?
