• @funnlim I don't know how popular Sisley's character is compared to other nominees. But, from the few episodes I watch of 'Legal Maverick', I think her character was designed to be likable. Maybe if she get the 'Most Improved Female Artist' award, it would be more suitable. I think she has improved a lot in her acting and has become more natural. I can see that she did listen to criticism. After audience complained about the noisy voice in an earlier series, you can see her trying to adjust her voice in subsequent series.
  • @funnlim I believe that Eric did not explain, rehearse and walk the actor through the scenes neither. Eric probably just told the actor to act real and there is no limit.
  • @maya13 Thanks for the link. Watched it. Scene was brief but brutal and that was the mild parts from what I can observe. It felt real, so for someone who didn't know, it was best acting. I think the worse parts were censored so not sure what happened. I believe Eric did not explain and rehearse and walk her through the scenes therefore she felt used and violated.
  • @funnlim Agreed. Older generations can be difficult
  • @funnlim Wong Jing will be adapting “The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber" into a movie. Don't have a lot of confidence in this project. Probably butcher/ change the story and just use the characters for a different take. Otherwise, nothing refreshing to offer viewers in a movie version.
  • Mother in law should leave myolie alone. Unless she is a terribly negligent mother or an absolutely horrible lazy wife, let her be. Different generation.
  • Sorry, WHAT? TVB, remaking HSDS? Good! Rebecca as Chow Chi Yuek? NO!! GOD NO!! Should give it to.. what's her name? The actress in My Ages Apart, the sister who is a doctor? I am dying to see her in costume setting. She has the face of a wuxia girl. Rebecca with her accented voice should play the foreign heroine character. Who is playing Cheung Mo Kei? Hubert better be in this series doing something. C version, no comment. None of them memorable face. It's always casting over suitability of actor.
  • @kaykay I suppose I am one of the haters. After hearing her speech which came across as half dim witted and half pretentious, and I blame that on the fact that she is more not eloquent than genuinely fake, (as compared with Rebecca Zhu who was far more eloquent and far more genuine sounding and Kenneth who was also as dim witted but in a genuine way), i have worse impression of Sisley. I don't find her genuine in her speech. She sounds like she is complaining and then complimenting her own beauty. As for her performance, it wasn't as terrible as some would say over her previous works but it was a role any decent actress can pull it off, without the teeth. And her having that teeth is unnecessary. I don't find her pretty enough to distract me. Some artiste should just say thank you and leave the stage instead of rambling on and on and on with empty speeches like she did. 2nd worse speech had to be Kenneth but he was thankfully not long winded.
  • @funnlim he was too driven in getting to the top, but didnt tell anyone (other than his gf and nephew close to the end) what his true motives were. he burned bridges & relationships, and hurt feeling to make more money. the company was starting to get a bad rep as a cold-hearted business. i think if he was more honest with his family, they would be more understanding to his predicament. and if they were aware of the gambling license, ah kau would then be told why the dad doesnt like gambling and he would have it pulled back. i think belle's change in wardrobe was to show that she is more mature compared to when we first saw her when she was pretty much still a young woman.
  • @funnlim Oh right, I meant to comment about Kenneth. He looked like a floating head. Either that or he burrowed a lawyer costume from prop department. I like Nancy's top if it was paired with a pencil skirt or a solid color pants. The whole glittery from head to toes was way too much. Sharon needs to retire her wedding dress! This isn't the first time she wore something that resembled a bride after she had already married lol. Everyone really needs to stay away from white dress. 99% just looks like a wedding dress which makes it cheesy, cliche and OTT.
  • @funnlim Some scenes in “Tribes and Empires” do feel that they dwell on the details for too long. For now, I am still okay as the details are usually filmed so gorgeously. I am still watching the early episodes so perhaps I haven’t experienced the full frustration of a viewer who continuously experiences this pacing as the story unfolds. “Tribes and Empires” feels like a leisurely art film at times where the camera lingers on every day objects and wants to capture the expressions of every extra on the set. It has its style and even if the finale may not conclude the way we want, hopefully the journey would have been pleasant enough. I know what you mean that Mainland Chinese productions lack “heart”. The acting may be good, but it can sometimes feel cold. Even how onscreen couples interact with each other seem very rehearsed...they are reading lines as written. Everything is executed to perfection, but it lacks the spontaneity that is often found in TVB dramas. This fluidity in TVB dramas is due to the flaw in the script writing department though. Sometimes the script is not available until last minute, or the dialogue is written so poorly that the artistes have to wing it. Bowie Lam had admitted to changing the dialogue so it matches his character better. I believe that in a lot of dating scenes, artistes are just asked to act naturally and behave like lovers. Sometimes this works if the artistes have good chemistry, so they are feeding off each other instead of just memorizing their lines like in Mainland dramas. Mainland dramas have a lot of investment money; there are big players involved. There’s a big team of staff to oversee every level of detail, from costumes to sets. For accountability to investors, I’m sure they have to film according to plan and script so there is less of that spontaneity that is found in TVB dramas, which when it works, can result in more authentic, hearty feel.
  • @funnlim Yes.. They can do so much better with the plot. End of the day, the villain is not so villain. Everything is so predicted and prolonged.
  • @jjwong at least 1.and what's up with those jacket with no sleeves? Tavia was right about kenneth and how harry potter look. Love how they say after all these time he's still zoned out type aka dimwitted! They really teased him.
  • @kidd I was like why why sisley why her. My fellow tv watcher says tvb wants to promote them.
  • Its between my ages apart and exorcist metre for me. Tvb can divide the pork better by creating new categories like best drama and best comedy and best ensemble cast. Everyone wins. My ages apart deserves the award. It broke a lot of grounds in terms of dialogue and story. Some performances were unexpected as well. It was funny consistently and it managed to get to 50 episodes and ended with a bang. Can't ask for more these days. Its actually witty and intelligent series making some seriously funny observations and yet manages to tug the heart. Oh Matt yeung most improved? I'd give it to Herbert wu. That talented beast can sing I think dance ok and can seriously act. Remake jttw pls. He must be the monk. Love his speech too.
  • @funnlim I think her performance was good. Which made me like her character. I don’t think she sounded arrogant though, she used the criticisms to help improve herself which is good.
  • Liked none of the dresses except for the 2 male hosts who looked good. Memo should be sent to all nominees to show up in a tux or suit. As for the ladies, a lot of attempt to show non existing cleavage. The dresses look terrible but what irks me more is NO SOCKS!! HK Men are allergic to socks. Oh is Ruco's fashion consultant his girlfriend? He needs to sack whoever dresses him. I mean Joel looks silly with his flower jacket but at least that's fashion forward in a quirky sense. Ruco looked terrible. And he looked bored standing behind there. Got a feeling he wasn't feeling well.
  • I was shocked My Ages Apart won and was very happy. But Rebecca Zhu? Well her speech was good but her performance was subpar. But Sisley, I know she has fans and I don't care if I get red arrowed but after her win and her speech my impression was she is a bimbo or an airhead. Much like Kenneth Ma's an airhead but he was humble airhead. Sisley sounded arrogant. She's not articulate that's for sure and her performance was nothing. The rest no comment. Award show seems subdued or rather low budget. But Hubert singing was the highlight for me. And I can see how much Kenneth is liked by his colleagues.
  • @funnlim i dont believe everyone who say they support or believe eric are really true. of course some are but i think some of them must have at least some doubt. if eric is really that creepy guy then he will also take revenge from ppl who dont believe him, and his power in the entertaimnent world is big. i think most ppl from the entertainment industry will "support" eric as long as they dont have evidence to prove eric is guilty. he looks like a creep but i dont know if eric is really one, alan tam is his best friend for many years and still are. so....its difficult to guess.
  • @funnlim I hate the dubbing too but have gotten used to it over the years. I wished they could have just used their real voices. These novels are long so of course it should be long but I do agree that some parts are a bit draggy. However, overall still decent. What flavor are you referring to? I personally feel it has the Wuxia feeling to it. I wonder why everyone liked Nirvana in Fire? My late mom and I could not stand it. She complained about how bad it was. I could not even finish it! I guess I am in the minority that did not enjoy it.
