• @elizabeth everyone make mistakes. alan already said sorry and his wife have accepted his excuse. who say his wife want divorce? or she is happy when divorced? maybe alan treats his wife very well and gives everything she wants,and she still loves him. we outsiders knows too little to judge whats right or wrong.
  • @kolo I am disappointed with Alan Tam, not only did he cheat on his wife, he also justified it by portraying himself to be a good man. He may not have divorced his wife, but he is still living with another woman and his kid and every day of that is an insult to his marriage and his wife. May as well divorce his wife and let her out of this misery so she can pursue her religion in peace. After that was exposed, I see Alan Tam in the same category as Alvin Chau. Nat's wife is barren due to a fallopian tube problem and despite his potty mouth and his sleazy behaviour, he sticks by his wife and said so what? She is my one and only wife and if I have no descendants, so be it. Not sure if he sleeps around, but at least so far, he hasn't been caught doing anything wrong to his wife. Every person has many faces and everyone will make mistakes, but it is no excuse when the cheating comes to light. I have little respect for modern people who think that they can juggle their lives between two (or more) families and still think they are not hurting anyone.
  • @jimmyszeto Speaking of old articles, here is a flashback to what we discussed back in 2013. http://www.jaynestars.com/news/yammie-nam-reveals-circumstances-behind-rape-tragedy/
  • @hetieshou Apparently, Andy has been helping out with Lau Kar Fai as well.
  • The music kind of puts me off. I did not understand a word that they sang. Maybe they will have a softer ending theme with an ancient feel. What I liked about the TVB theme song was that it was catchy, had a mix of modern and ancient instruments and the lyrics were relevant to the story.
  • @elizabeth Yup I am sick of remakes! They are truly running out of ideas. Even if I did watch a remake, I would watch ones that are least popular as they do not have as many remakes as the more popular ones. I just watched the latest adaptation of Xia Ke Xing and really enjoyed it. Tvb’s adaption was not accurate even though I enjoyed it as a series. The new adaption was accurate and very enjoyable while the other remakes of the popular novels get so boring and redundant.
  • Why bother attending? The awards are probably rigged.
  • Why do they bother with a remake if they are doing it in a complete setting? May as well as write your own script and stop milking off the name " A Better Tomorrow". Knowing Chinese film limits, the ending will be predictable.
  • Oh! I remember her! She played Vincent Wan's sister who married Gallen Lo in "Vengeance"! I heard she got married to a nice guy who managed artistes. The poor girl was probably intimidated into not pressing charges as she initially said yes to the scene. But the thing is no matter what the previous agreement was, the minute she did not want to continue, the production crew should have stopped it and whatever deal there was should have been nulled. Eric is just a cheap exploitive scum who wanted his movie to be the talk of the town. The film was about the political unrest and the bad side of human nature. It did not need to have such a graphic rape scene, thus I call it explotative. He may have cut the really graphic scenes out of the final cut, but to keep any of it in a movie is just eternal violation of Yu Sin Man over and over again each time it is viewed. This news has actually out for a while. The rumour was actually made known for many years, at least I read about it somewhere in the last decade. It was mentioned again during the HK tourist bus incident in 2010.
  • @elizabeth I totally agree actors need stunts for dangerous scenes!!! The stunts are very skilled and won't likely get hurt. It's almost hard to describe that she got injured from Legend of Luzhen when that was not even a fighting character. If the scene is dangerous, it has nothing to do with dedication but safety. We care about the stunt's safety as well, it's not as if they're less important and it's ok if it was only them who ended up injured, it's just they are just skilled in what they're doing so hand over the scene to them. But, ahem...kneeling though? I would argue that's not really dangerous. The picture I saw was not the one the princess stepping on her but I think we are referring to the one at the dessert with a bunch of soldiers. I actually think the most ridiculous picture was the one with a lady massaging LGX, I just don't get how that can be time saving you know...somebody else have to dress up entirely like you and do the massaging or kneeling scene for 5 seconds only. We're pretty sure the actor is absolutely on set at the same time/place as well...otherwise, does that mean everybody else have to shoot the same scene 2-3 times, dress in the same thing again, and also decorate the place the same way again to shoot the scene with the real actor there for the 2nd time? Because they were continuous scenes, after the stunts did their part for 2 seconds, the scene still continue in that same setting. So it's interesting to use stunts for time saving concepts. But I blame the directors though, they don't know the actors faces need to look dirty and bloody after a big fight, at most all actors get is a small tiny scratch on their faces only...directors focus too much on making sure the actors look pretty/handsome. I think that must be the reason why they are using stunts for some weird scenes that turns out to look unnecessary. But another thing I kind of wished that happen, I wish there were more professional stunts to do some fast fighting scenes instead, and it doesn't really matter all that much if we noticed them. Just like ROCH 06, there are a couple times we see stunts for LYF. But it was good and understanding because they were fighting so fast with amazing jumps, although LYF is so skillful, there are still some movements stunts are better at and they should do them. I don't quite agree with unskilled actors doing way too much of the fighting scenes because, all we get then is really really slow motion fighting that are not engaging. It is either, we see stunts or slow motion, and I have a preference to see the stunts instead because slow motion is just ridiculous, anybody can do that. When the stunts are so far away and fast moving, we almost don't see them and are not bothered by the fact they are stunts.
  • If you guys don't know the story, these doubles are usually to save on costs since sometimes the main artistes may be away on another set to do some other scenes of filming. With everyone's tight schedules and filming several projects at the same time, it is very hard to get everyone in the same scene, especially when testing lighting or standing positions and also for reshoots past the set filming schedule if the initial cut did not look good enough. It has got nothing to do with an artist's dedication or professionalism but to do with the efficiency of the production team. Zanilla was out filming the slave shooting scene in the desert so she needed a double to stand in for her for some scenes while she was gone. And the guys didn't even make it to the desert cos they were filming something else so the background was all pasted on afterwards for the guys horseriding and shooting. It had nothing to with Zanilla feeling precious or not. And she had an ongoing back and knee injury from "The Legend of Lu Zhen" as well (because from the jumping off the wall scene and the wires got crossed and she was dropped). So if she wants a stunt double for horse riding scenes and action scenes to protect her health and back, so be it. One of the scenes with the stunt for kneeling was the scene where the princess had to step on Zhu Qiao's back to dismount from her carriage. The production team had already explained on weibo this when the stunt double was picked up by the audience a few eps into airing. I don't get the criticism from you guys. If a normal person can refuse a part of a job that is dangerous to their health due to OH&S concerns, I don't understand why artistes are expected to put up with it and put themselves at risk.
  • @elizabeth My comment simply means 1- this kind of sexual harassment and assault does happen in the asian industry. 2-- some of the 'gods' that the netizens and sheeple worship are guilty of such crimes. They are so high up and so revered and worshipped as kind, thoughtful, hard-working, devoted family men, who donate such love and time to their fans, that no on will believe the victims of these slimers. Add the fact that they have evil, powerful societies with consuming ruthlessness behind them. Also add the fact that the media and millions of sheeple are behind them, so the victims don't stand a chance. All of them will not be found out, but God is watching. What is so hard to understand ?
  • @elizabeth really? they should remake every jing yong novel every year! again and again and again.....china is the best in replicate things.
  • @elizabeth I hope you have a good heart and can handle surprising news. If all the creeps get outed, then all that is supposedly in a higher realm won't be so hea..... high and above earth after all. Then again, kings have a lot of power, and a lot of men and women are afraid of that power and will not come forward. Yes, some go after men too. In fact, some go after both male and female.You see, certain "celestial" beings have been getting away with crumes against humanity for years, even against their own families. It would be great if these animals are brought to justice. God is watching, and I pray he gives these women and men the strength to come forward and expose these deviants. Problem is, the dream induced sheeple will kill anyone who dare to make such accusations againts their godlike, perfect idols. As for Eric Tsang, this does not surprise me one bit.
  • Not surprised. Hope all the creeps get outed.
  • Hmmmmmm. It is a bit too early for another remake.
  • @davy Oh wow! Apparently, Vincent's character was in love with her as well. That must have required good acting.
