It's not that I like Gangsters... embarassedlaugh.gif ...it's just that there are very few REAL Chinese movies that show a lot of character and reflect societal reality. I don't like all gangster movies though, I really dislike John Woo's cliched flicks. Feng Xiaogang and some Taiwanese films are great too, but they got more commercial these days.

One of the good Mainland movies I saw is "Shower".

混混天團 2010/Gangster Rock looks like a very cool and funny movie, I'm going to catch it! Thanks for the tip.

I like "REAL" movies and films, i.e., art that reflects life. It doesn't mean it can't be fantasy, as long as it says something that is meaningful, that tells us all about some DEEPER truth about human nature, eg. Terry Guillaume's "Brazil".

I like laughing at Stephen Chow's movies, but they are ultimately feel-good fantasies, though less pretentious than John Woo. Zhang Yimou used to keep it "real", but unfortunately, not anymore.

Thank you and the mods for keeping it, let's share some good stuff, from Taiwan, HK, China and elsewhere! beerchug.gif

Cool MV too! Great Indy sound, and evocative about relationships, isn't it?

Thanks, I'll catch it. I have high expectations for Taiwanese movies, after Hou Hsiao Hsien and Ang Lee, who are very reality-based. I worry it's too much like "Nana" type of Japanese movies.

Very nice MV from Alan Kuo, thanks! Brilliant cinematography, reminds me of Fight Club. Lyrics are great too.

One of my absolute faves from HK, Johnnie To captured HK so well in this frighteningly real film. It is a very intelligent and evocative thriller, though psychologically gripping, not an "action" film, but keeps you guessing till the end :

The Accident:

Do you like Shawn Sung 宋岳庭, RIP.

A *genius*, but had a terrible life and died too young. His songs are for pensive moments.

Warning, don't listen to his songs if you feel depressed!

He is one of the very RARE ones, who is not ONLY eye-candy, but who is talented in music, writes poetry and who has one of the best male vocals I've ever heard, deep and very strong. beerchug.gif

Ha...corrected, yes, he is cute!

There are also some new ones, eg. Andy Lau's "Detective Dee" and Donnie Yen's "Guan Yu"?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1123373/

Detective Dee is an enjoyable thriller, not too deep or anything, but good entertainment.

Unfortunately, with Jet Li's retirement, there isn't another martial arts star to take over the genre!

I'm currently listening to 郭靜, singer with a good voice! I like these two songs by her in her last album:

郭靜 - 總算我們也愛過
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3B7MasznI0...feature=related

郭靜 - 每一天都不同

I've just listened to this on my car radio, awhile ago. Sounds awesome.

Mind telling me what's the lyric all about?

Sure! "狂想曲" means "Fantasia", and the lyrics are a bit nonsensical, about opening a book and falling into its world, going crazy over the ancient rhythm of Haydn and the Theory of Gravity of Newton, and feeling like he can Fly. It's not bad though, original in its own way. This song reminds me of old school rock, when bands like Queen included orchestral arrangements into rock opera music like "Bohemian Rhapsody". Can you hear some Michael Jackson style of singing here?

Did I post before about Ke Ke Xi Li, a great film about the wilderness and endangered Tibetan Antelope in Tibet? This is one of the most achingly beautiful but difficult to watch films ever made. It is stunning quasi-documentary, brutal and tragic, not a dry eye in the house, and not for those who like typical movies and their plotlines.
