About

I review movies, mostly from Hong Kong, mostly starring pop idols, mostly of questionable quality. I also work in Hong Kong, which means I have no life and no time. Thus, reviews are few and far between. At one point, I also started reviewing cheesy Hallmark Channel movies. I know this gives me little credibility in entertainment recommendations, or in life.

I like cravats, especially the people who wear them, so the other half of my movie and television life is occupied by productions from the old Empire. These generally do not star pop idols.

I studied film, and a little Catholic theology, in college but only have pieces of paper that attest to my mastery of English literature and Chinese.

My favorite movie of all time is The Sound of Music, and I get lost in the beauty of 花樣年華 (In the Mood for Love). If I was stuck on a desert island with a functioning telly/DVD player and could only bring one show, it would be Foyle’s War.

Re the site’s title, I am decidedly a Bruce Lee fan. But I prefer the pre-ass kicking films of his youth. Those DVDs are sandwiched between others of lesser renown, but I hope to review them sooner than later, along with other 1950s-1960s Hong Kong movies. The chances of this happening, however, are slim.
