You'd be forgiven for thinking A Hero Never Dies had actually gone and died. After saying I was back and raring to go, you get five posts and then silence... Almost three months of it. Anyway I'm still here, and so with as little drama as possible, cue whisper, I'm really back this time.
What can I say? Getting myself back to normal has been much tougher than I anticipated, and unfortunately something had to make way for that process to happen, so the blog and it's presence on the various social media platforms took the hit for team Never Dies. At this stage I don't want to make any bold claims for how frequent the updates will be, so please be patient, what I will say is I have plenty to cover!
In the blog's downtime I've continued my obsession with Italian cinema, tearing through the Eurocrime and Giallo genres at a rate of knots, and having a great time doing it. As for Hong Kong movies, they've taken a backseat. It pains me to say it, but the last twelve months or so have proved to be pretty dire as far as new releases are concerned. Everyone who follows the scene is aware of how the quality and not just the quantity of HK films has fallen over the last however many years, but I've always tried to stay positive. I'm sorry to say however this year feels like a new low to me. Getting back to the good stuff, I've been dabbling with buying and selling movie posters which has seen plenty of great artwork passing through AHND towers, some of which I'll be sharing in due course.
Finally, a massive thank you to those of you still stopping by every now and then who haven't given up on me, and those who've checked in on fb with me, your support means a lot to me.
