Movie-related article links

Remember the spunky girl who played Wong Fei Hung
Iron Monkey (1993)?

Well, look at Angie Tsang Tze-Man now
(and also do go read my article about her)!
(N.B. Thanks to Angie and Sidney for that photo)

Apologies for the lack of updates this past week. It's not so much that I've been particularly busy at work this past week as that the previous week was so tiring -- to give you some idea: I didn't get out of the office until 10 pm on Thursday, 11:45 pm on Friday and 5 pm on the official half-day, Saturday -- that I'm still slowly recovering from it all now... :(

On a brighter note though, here are some of my contributions to the issue of the magazine which came out this past Thursday:-

i) From Wong Fei Hung to Wushu Champion -- Angie Tsang Tze-Man: child actress turned policewoman as well as world champion wushu exponent! :)

ii) Flights of Familial Fancy -- An interview with The Flying Karamazov Brothers (a(nother) movie connection: They appeared with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner in The Jewel of the Nile (1985)! ;b)

iii) Review of Invisible Target (action-packed Benny Chan movie starring Nicholas Tse, Shawn Yue, Jaycee Chan and Wu Jing)

iv) Review of Secret (music-filled romantic melodrama directed by, starring and original story by Jay Chou)

Oh, and while I didn't review it, here's highly recommending Ratatouille, a wonderful movie that I got to check out at a sneak preview early last week. :)

Hi Stefan --

Are you a Jay Chou fan by any chance? ;)

More seriously: I was fine for the first one hour or so -- it got me thinking of 1970s Taiwanese romances starring a certain Lin Ching-Hsia. But that secret really sank the film as far as I'm concerned... :S
