Are there any Good Samaritans left in the world?

Couple of days ago, I was walking towards that huge flight of stairs outside the Mong Kok train station when I saw I'd say about 40 people stuck at the top of the stairs, everyone is moving at a snail pace down the stairs, it took a few minutes for me to get to the steps and then I saw what the hold up was about...

There was a woman in her 60's dragging a huge 2 wheeler piece of baggage down one step at a time... I watched as almost 20 people in front of me, side step around her, then making co...Read more

Getting old and out of shape... time to lose some weight...

So....  I just turned 28 recently and I hate to say it, I do feel old. Worrying about ones career can give you white hairs overnight, and for the past few years, it's all I have been worrying about, needless to say, I woke up one day not long ago and found a patch of white hairs in the top of my head... you see... when you focus your energies on something that involves your brain a lot, you sometimes forget to take care of your body...

I admire professional athletes of all kinds because ...Read more

The process of screenwriting...

A lot of my friends are writers, directors or people in the industry and whenever we get together, I would ask them about their process, like how they are as a writer, the steps they take in putting a script together and how they are as a director and the steps they take from looking at the script to putting together their angles...

Writing has been a huge part of my life for the past 5 to 6 years, back in the early days when I first started writing screenplays, it was a joy whenever I double click on the Final Draft i...Read more

Hollywood Remakes... Career choices... My eventual 4th film...

There's been word going around that Hollywood is planning on remaking the Korean film "Oldboy" for almost 5 years... first it was going to be Fast & Furious director Justin Lin, which seems like a very good choice...

But as the years passed, the remake project fell off the grid, then we saw Infernal Affairs being remade by Ma...Read more

Dream actor or actress to direct in a film?

Hey AnDers,

     This one goes out to all the Directors here, who would be your dream actor or actress to work with if you were to direct a film of your own.

My top choices for actors would be Ray Winstone and David Thewlis...

As for actresses, my top two would be Parker Posey and Shu Qi...

Can you imagine what kind of a movie would have a cast of the 4 of them? It would be a pretty strange movie.

It's okay to dream right, so what's your top lists?

Brock Lesnar, New Heavyweight King!

UFC made it to their 100th show over the weekend, the main event featured Brock Lesnar VS Frank Mir for the Heavy Weight Title...

By the way things look, Brock Lesnar may very well be the best Heavy Weight in the world, the way I see it is that you have Fedor who fights out of Affliction and probably will never move to the UFC so to compare Lesnar and Fedor on paper, Lesnar would be my choice for number 1, here is how I would break it down.

Fedor is good with submissions, but nowhere near the level Frank M...Read more

Got ID Check by the Cops at Sheng Wan today...

Any of you ever been profiled and then ID checked by the cops?

Before I tell you the ordeal, I must tell you what I look like these days.

the profile picture is misleading, I let my hair grow and put on a bit of weight, I was wearing a navy blue cap, black t-shirt, black hoodie, headphones on, brown faded jeans, gray boots, with a back pack, both straps on my shoulder....

Now I was walking down 2nd Street by the wet market at Sheng Wan, down that steep hill towards the tram lines. There I...Read more
