Continuing this months HK dvd purchases, for part three a change of pace and a lightening of tone, yes it's comedy time. Come on, don't groan at me, I have to have some respite from all the hard boiled stuff!
I ordered these next three discs to complete the Hui brothers remastered set about a week before learning of Ricky Hui's untimely death. The Contract and The Last Message I haven't seen but Games Gamblers Play, I reviewed earlier this year. I already had the remastered versions of The Private Eyes and Security Unlimited.
Ronny Yu's The Occupant, a comedy ghost story starring the great pairing of Chow Yun Fat and Sally Yeh.
You can't have a list of Hong Kong comedies without Wong Jing, so next up is Boys are Easy. I've never seen the movie but the cast list is incredible, and that's just the girls, Brigitte Lin, Maggie Cheung and Chingmy Yau.
Who is the other person you can't have a Hong Kong comedy list without? Eric Tsang of course and here he is with Wong Jing in the Shaw Brother's How to Pick Up Girls. Another great cast of girls including Maggie Cheung and Chingmy Yau again.
Lastly for part three, Sammo Hung's Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars, No Wong Jing this time but Eric Tsang's still around.
Back to the rougher, tougher stuff next time for this months final installment.
