I've always been a huge fan of Chinese cinema since I was a kid. Ever since seeing my first Run Run Shaw film "The Five Venoms". Of course, Chinese cinema has come a long way since the Run Run Shaw/Golden Harvest films dominated the market (or at least the Western market!). Films are no longer dubbed after completion, special effects have improved, and just the quality in general has improved. It began to really improve in quality during the John Woo/Tsui Hark days. Stuff like Hard Boiled, The Killer and Once Upon A Time In China took Chinese cinema to another level. There isn't really much talk on the temp about Chinese cinema, so being the kind soul that I am I thought I'd open one up to introduce the world of Chinese cinema to those who might not have had a chance to appreciate some of the finer titles available. If you're an action fan or martial arts film then Chinese cinema is a must. We hear of actors like Jackie Chan and Jet Li obviously, but we hear very little about actors like Simon Yam, Donnie Yen, Tony Leung and many other fine actors. Directors like Ang Lee and John Woo have of course broken out into the Western market but we don't hear about directors like Johnnie To, Wilson Yip, Wong Kar Wei or others. So here's your chance to talk about some of your favourite films, actors, directors or whatever you choose! Make suggestions so those who haven't seen some of the greats can experience them for themselves.
