I finally have a chance to sit down and write. Just came back from a trip to Lake Tahoe, California where I was snowboarding for the past four and a half days. It’s been a long time since I have snowboarded, so that compounded with age has made my entire body sore. Even though I’m in total pain right now, I had a really great time. Snowboarding is one of my favorite sports. Are there any hardcore snowboarders out there?
The last month was an extra busy one for me. I finished shooting Blood Brothers, went to Taiwan for our final Alive...Read more
No, Andrew you're still a loser! But at least you are able to upload photos to the blog. Why can't I do it?!?!
Anyway, Tokyo was great. Tickets to the film sold out in 10 minutes. The Q&A session was filled full of interesting questions and the interviews we did with the press were also intelligent and well informed. I wish HK reporters could learn a thing ot two from them. It's been a while since I've been to Tokyo and I forgot how much I like it there. Hopefully I can go back soon. I also received some CD...Read more
Here I was all excited to post some photos from Pusan on the blog and I can't figure out how to do it properly. So I'm stuck with a text only blog. Terence, can you drop me an e-mail on how to do it again?
Anyway, Pusan was great. The THK screening was fully packed and the Q&A session had some really interesting questions for me. Thanks to those of you who showed up there! I was also able to see Ming Ming, the film I did with Zhou Xun. It's a beautifully shot film with really great music done by Anthony Wong. It is a re...Read more
I thought I was a loser not blogging recently but I just realized that I was the last person to blog so that makes Terence, Conroy and Andrew even bigger losers! :-)
Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I normally don't celebrate my birthday but my parents were in Hong Kong and they have not been with me on my birthday since I went to college...15 years ago! Oh man, that just made me feel really old. See why I don't celebrate my birthday? Anyway, got together at my sister's house for a nice home cooked f...Read more
Just got back from Venice where I got to see The Banquet for the first time. I really enjoyed the movie and it is probably one of my favorite movies to date. Now we are on a whirlwind promotion schedule that lasts the whole month. I am in Beijing now where the film will premiere tomorrow. Then to Shanghai on the 10th for another premiere. Back to Hong Kong on the 11th to get ready for the Hong Kong premiere on the 12th. Then we are off to Taiwan on the 13th and Singapore on the 14th. Then on the 20th, we will b...Read more
Just came back from the HardSoft, Eric Kot and Jan Lamb show. They put on a very cool show. Entertaining and funny this was probably my favortie HK concert this year! Check it out if you have time (and money) you won't be let down. Just a few days ago we performed at Josie Ho's debut solo concert over in Kowloon Bay. Josie put on a rocking good show with guest performances by Paul Wong, Jun Kung, Hardpack, Ryan Hui and us. It was fun performing the rock version of our song A-Dong. Tha...Read more
Man!!! It has been really really hot here in HK the past couple of weeks. I have started work on "the Protege" and it's been tough because of the heat. I've forgotten how uncomfortable it can be to film during the summer in Hong Kong. It's fine if you're only in it for a couple hours a day but we have been spending at least 9 hours a day outside. Hopefully it will cool down some. It's strange because it feels hotter than it's ever felt in Hong Kong and I wonder if global warming has anyth...Read more
I decided to blog eventhough I'm on vacation because I noticed the boys have been negelecting you all. Just arrived Stateside after a really exciting trip to Cannes. We all had a really good time there. Especially me because it was my first time there. I got a lot of sun, food and movies. Some of my favorite Hollywood actors, Samuel Jackson, Willem Dafoe and Tim Roth showed up at our party for "The Banquet". It was nice to see some international support for our film or maybe they were just th...Read more
It's been a while, I know, we've all been getting back to life after THK.
It has come to our attention that The Heavenly Kings DVD has been released through China, obviously pirated. Whatever you do don't buy it!!! The original will be realeased in about a month, along with a very special, limited edition director's cut DVD. I heard that the China version has been re-edited so it is basically not the same movie. So whatever you do DON'T BUY IT!!! Anything you see on ...Read more
Wew! The AlIVE boys spent the weekend going round to all the major theaters to have meet and greet sessions with the audiences. We met a lot of people who were going to see the film. Thanks to the ALIVE fans who follwed us on our tour and gave us a helping hand to keep the crowds from crushing us!
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for coming out to see the film this weekend. Your support has allowed us to be the number one local film at the box office!!! And we are the second film overall. So from the eintire Al...Read more
