Your Window Into Hong Kong Cinema
Looking forward to this! But it will be tough to surpass The Dark Knight. Tom Hardy is going to steal the movie as Bane.
It will be hard for Nolan, the honeymoon seems to be over and the his critics seem to be sharpening their knives after Inception, we shall see.
Great poster, really moody, but I'm indifferent about seeing the film... I thought Dark Knight was just okay - The Prestige was way better I thought. But don't pay any attention to me Batfans, I totally hated the Lord of the Rings films, so I probably have an inferiority complex when it comes to pop-cinema...
Wes, speaking as a Batfan, I loved The Dark Knight and I have to wonder if Nolan can do anything as strong for this one. As for L.O.T.R, hate is such a strong word Wes. I've only seen the theatrical versions, I really liked the first one but thought they got weaker as they went along. What pop cinema would you say you liked Wes?
I'm trying to think of stuff I saw recently... I thought Inception was really good, and I liked Black Swan, 127 Hours and The Social Network...
I see you have found one of the Hui Brothers films. If my HK film knowledge is correct, the Hui brothers (Michael, Sam and Ricky) were the top box office draw in the 70's to 80's with their unique brand of HK comedy. Their comedies put Cantonese-speaking HK film on the map, as previous HK production was often in Mandarin to cater to the Taiwan market.
