National Treasure: Book of Secrets

just got the chance to check out a preview screening of National Treasure: Book of Secrets (I was late to the screening but luckily they let me in...). So everyone knows, it is a contemporary indiana jones looking for some hidden treasures, which also kinda reminds me of Da Vinci Code somehow.. I guess for casual moviegoers, the words entertaining and fast-paced probably summarize it w...Read more

尋找電影的味道

不知大家會否像我一樣﹐有這樣一個奇怪的習慣﹐就是晚上在家﹐會拿一些電影放著﹐即使不是真的看﹐也讓它放著...

我也不知道是什麼原因﹐可能最近太忙﹐沒時間看太多電影吧﹐有時候很晚才回家﹐實在沒有精神去看電影﹐但總是不能自制地去拿一些電影在放(通常都是拿已經看過的)。我想我是很想感受身在電影的感覺。

不同的電影都會帶給我們不同的感覺﹐都有一種特別的"味道"﹐尤其是一些節奏比較慢﹐但充滿生活味的電影﹐那種氣味特別濃烈﹐令人完全陶醉。

我近來最喜歡是放賈樟柯﹑侯考賢的影片﹐都是講述城市或鄉間生活的﹐有時候看看那些城市畫面﹑聽聽那些粗糙但真實的聲音﹐然後閉上眼睛﹐彷佛已經置身在那個城市之內﹐消遙在天地之間﹐心情也會變得舒暢。這算不算是逃避現實?我也不清楚...

記得以前看過一本研究日本色情電影工業的書﹐作者說有個日本朋友每天下班回家﹐都會隨手拿一盒AV色情帶放﹐即使他不是在看﹐但是卻樂於讓自己沉浸在那個布滿女人呻吟聲的氣氛中...看來頗有異曲同工之妙...

Life is so fragile... 生命真脆弱!

i was driving from east bay to san francisco a few days ago and it took me almost 2 hrs to cross the bay bridge... why? the pics below tell the story...

a view from my car, how often would you see the busy bay bridge look like this? does it look like some photo caps from a blockbuster movie..?

Beware: The Mist

I just went to see the Mist, directed by Frank Darabont and adapted from Stephen King's novel.

Frank Darabont makes film really slow, throughout his 20+ years of career as a director, he has only directed about 5~6 films, and most of his best ( shawshank redemption and green mile) are adapted from king's novel, and the guy himself is also nice and cool (met him once at usc and he said...Read more

閒逛三藩市華埠

日前因為工作關係﹐有幾個小時的空檔時間﹐在三藩市華埠閒逛。

住在三藩市的華青﹐相信很少會到華埠逛﹐因為那邊的衛生環境一般﹑街窄人擠﹐而且除了街市﹐其他店鋪都似"呃遊客"﹐我有個朋友以前曾經因為緊急需要電池﹐在那裡的電器鋪買了一pack﹐後來發覺不只價錢比其他地方貴﹐而且更是冒牌貨﹐非常離譜。所以除了遊客﹑老一輩華僑和住在那邊或有工作需要﹐在那邊逛的華人其實不多。

不過華埠始終是歷史悠久﹐其實也有不少地方值得一遊﹐尤其節日更熱鬧。買東西的話﹐也不是沒有好地方﹐我日前逛的時候﹐便在一間雜貨店內的一個賣影碟的小角落﹐發現到一些絕版碟﹐結果買了陳凱歌的早期名片"孩子王"﹐這齣戲已找了很久﹐上次回港也找不到﹐想不到在這裡居然有﹐是內地的正版碟(看來是正版)﹐價錢大概是3元﹐以內地碟來計﹐算可以接受。不知這間鋪的影碟是否水貨﹐很多都賣得很平﹐就算是香港碟(肯定是正版)﹐也和在香港買不會差太遠。

要在華埠尋寶﹐其實也不是很難﹐不過真的要花點時間去尋﹐而且不是每次都可成事。

我的新片也有部分場景會在華埠取景﹐希望到時能一切順利。

Casting the female lead... tell me I am right!

So after we picked the supporting actors, the next thing was to get the female lead confirmed. The process itself wasn’t really that difficult, but then the dilemma I am facing now is whether I have made the right decision.

Since I picked this actress for my film, I have heard of so many comments questioning my decision, from people who know or don’t know her, and from people who have read the scrīpt and those who haven’t. Even though the comments are not totally negative, they are just so overwhelming a...Read more

Wish upon the shooting star

I think I just saw a shooting star a few nights ago.. not sure if it is really one but it moved very fast way up in the sky, so i assumed it is... and certainly i followed the tradition and made a wish...  a dream that is very difficult to come true..

just a very naive question, does it actually work? anyone really tried to make a wish on a shooting star and the wish actually came true?

流星許願是否真的應驗?看來好像是很無聊的問題﹐不過人總應該有一些夢想吧﹐否則人生便太悲﹐也太沒意義了。

近來看的電影

我想﹐有一些朋友可能是從影評網站那邊走過來﹐所以寫篇中文的和這些朋友打個招呼。

我近來頗為忙碌﹐隨了拍攝計劃外﹐本身也有一些其他的寫作計劃在進行﹐當然還有在這裡整理這個博客﹐每天花在寫東西的時間愈來愈長。不過看電影是沒有少﹐近來看了幾部華語片﹐都印象深刻。

第一部當然就是 《色﹐戒》﹐這部已經寫過影評﹐讀過的朋友相信已經讀過﹐未讀過又有興趣的﹐不妨過去那邊看看。我不算是李安影迷﹐不過真的很佩服他調度演員和發揮演員潛能的能力﹐我想和他合作是每一個演員的夢想吧。對於戲本身﹐我是沒有特別的評價﹐只能說讓我看得頗為投入﹐各方面處理都恰到好處。

第二部是 《太陽照常升起》﹐這部還未詳寫﹐不過也快了。姜文的幾部舊片﹐例如 《陽光燦爛的日子》(想看的最好找日版DVD﹐或等電影節活動放映...)和 《鬼子來了》﹐我都非常喜歡。這部也不例外﹐明明說的是悲劇﹐但是給人感覺很歡愉﹐影片像一條龍一樣﹐在空中自由飛翔﹐讓人看得輕鬆自在。不過相對來說﹐最令我難忘的﹐始終是 《鬼子來了》﹐真的是一部令人不能忘記的特別電影...

第三部是 《圖雅的婚事》﹐剛剛在這邊的一個亞洲電影節看了﹐沒有讓人失望。其實起初也有點怕看這些農村片。不是不喜歡看﹐相反是看得太多﹐總覺差...Read more
