Einstein's head

this robot sure looks great, but on the other hand, i am just wondering if it is really right to re-create einstein's head that way?

Hurray to Sean Penn for winning the oscar

Hurray to Sean Penn for winning the oscar, as i said before, his portrayal of harvey milk is definitely one of the best performance i have seen for a while... in fact i guess the last time i had similar feeling was almost 5 years ago when i was awed by the flawless performance by oldboy's choi min-sik...

slumdog millionnaire as the big winner is also well deserved. it is not a perfect film, but the director, actors and script have all done a good job..

the only pity is probably the lack of recogn...Read more

Love is...

What are you guys going to do on Valentine's day? I hate it, for the obvious reason...

What is love? It is such a difficult question. Let's play a game and ask yourself this question and see how much you can answer.

Let me try first. Perhaps, love is...

placing someone on top of everything;

having someone on your mind every single moment of your life;

unfathomable;

going to movies and dinners;

when you try very hard to get it, you fail, and for some people, they get it for reasons yo...Read more

農曆新年快樂 Happy Chinese New Year!

祝大家農曆新年快樂﹐事事順利!

很久沒打中文的網誌﹐沒辦法﹐人比較懶﹐也有點忙。

回顧去年的工作﹐都是不過不失﹐不論是電影創作﹑寫作和網站方面﹐都是平穩而欠突破。

先談Cinespot電影網站﹐近年發展是比較緩慢﹐舊一代的影評作者﹐很多都淡出了﹐可幸有一批新力軍加盟﹐都是對電影文字很有熱誠的朋友﹐而且對電影有獨特的看法﹐非常感謝這些朋友的支持。

其實一直都有很多發展網站的想法﹐不過礙於人手和資源種種原因﹐都是空中樓閣﹐沒能進一步構思執行。經營網站需要很大的熱誠﹐尤其是商業性不強的電影網站。像Cinespot這樣的小站﹐能夠得到很多人的支持﹐是很榮幸。不知不覺﹐倦倦不斷地寫﹐已超過10年光景﹐想來不是網站需要我﹐而是我有這個衝動﹐繼續寫下去。

去年在電影創作上的進展也很緩慢﹐年中完成之前的短片﹐本來打算專注於長片劇本﹐但突然想到一個短片想拍﹐又暫時丟下了。可是這個新的短片﹐籌備工作比預期複雜﹐加上種種人為和非人為的障礙﹐一拖再拖﹐到了現在還停留在前期製作中﹐感覺是有點遲緩。

寫作方面﹐有打算把以往撰寫的電影文章結集﹐不過要翻閱﹑篩選和更改舊文﹐以目前的可用時...Read more

another excellent selection of cc

cc did the right thing again, the long awaited (yes i have been waiting for this one for a long time) hiroshi shimizu's dvd boxset with english subs will finally come out in march, now we can forget the crazily priced japanese versions...  the only bad thing is that it looks like all 4 films in the set are barebone disc with no extra... oh well...

murder or not, let the video speaks for itself...

so here below are the footage taken by witness. several point of interest to consider:

  1. is it possible for the officer to pick up the wrong gun? he is supposed to be equipped with a taser on one side and a real gun on the other.

  2. if you use a taser gun to shock people, you have to be actually touch the person, but from the footage, u can see clearly that after he pulled the gun out, he moved up a bit and fired the shot from a short distance... what does it mean?

  3. Read more

Oakland protest, politicized or not?

People from the bay area have probably heard about the new year bart incident, in which a white bart cop shot an unarmed black man during a confrontation. at first, the bart police suggested that the man resisted arrest and was shot by accident, but then videotaped footage by passer-by witness showed that the unarmed man was lying on his stomach with no sign of resistence at all, an...Read more
