THE SIMPSONS MOVIE

Image
I actually saw this more than a week ago, but haven't had a chance to review it due to this TV movie production I'm involved in.

Flash Point 导火线

Image
I didn't have high hopes for Flash Point when I first saw its trailer months ago (when I went to see the French rom-com, Hors de Prix ). The lady friend I was with was more excited about it than I was.

R.I.P. Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni

Image
Legendary filmmakers Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni had just passed away on the same day. Ingmar was 89, Antonioni was 94.

Oh! Mikey

Oh! Mikey is the best thing to come out of Japanese comedy in years. Check this one: It's SO much funnier if you've actually been to a hostess bar/ kyabakura and know what they're talking about.

Invisible Target 男兒本色

Director Benny Chan Muk-Sing is sort of like the Michael Bay of Hong Kong cinema. I don't mean this as an insult, but he's really the go-to guy for big-budget HK actioners with explosions and crazy stunts. Most of the time, when it comes to action scenes, he seldom disappoints.

Nice article about my dad on The Star newspaper

Image
Two days ago, just like every other mornings, I was having breakfast with my parents. As usual, I was flipping through The Star while eating. My daily newspaper reading routine is like the following: 1) Start with The Star. Begin from the Sports section, then to the international news section, before checking out the headlines, and then finally reading Section 2, which would usually cover the entertainment articles. 2) Throw The Star aside, pick up the entertainment section of Sin Chew Daily, a Chinese paper to read the latest celebrity gossip. 3) Put that entertainment section of Sin Chew Daily aside, and check out the entertainment section in China Press, another Chinese paper for things left out by Sin Chew. But anyway, I was reading through the entertainment sections of The Star before something caught my eye. My dad's name. And also, a hideous photo of his that was taken probably during the late 80s or early 90s.

Serious Literary Fiction about Idols

I need help. I am writing a serious literary work about idols and wota. Someone please tell me suggestions for things they want to see in this. This is not a joke, I am a published author.

The Kind Old Man At The Train Station

Image
(Photo by Nighthawk Photoworks ) Two nights ago, after finishing a shoot, I went to a KTM train station to take a train home. It was nine thirty and the ticket counter was closed, so I could only buy my tickets through either one of the two ticket vending machines.

Ridiculous 'Soaring' Photo of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

Taken outside Kichijoji Station. Here's what he usually looks like:

Traffic Accidents Are Morbid.

It is currently 3:14AM. There will be a TV movie shoot tomorrow. I'm involved as production manager/ assistant director... hence the lack of updates. Right now, I am cutting newspaper articles of ghastly traffic accidents. It's for a prop. This is very morbid.

Chomu

Chomu. Quentin S. Crisp and I have started a new writing magazine. It's writing what we like, when we want. Other contributors are coming soon. There is a new short story from me up, so go read it. And tell your friends and family. Here is a picture of Shinohara Ryouko sitting on the toilet:
