• @funnlim I'd rather he not appear at all, but if he must, then I agree that this would be the ideal scenario. lol
  • @funnlim What is true democracy? Did HK people ever have democracy when the british colonised them? I mean you must really have identified with the slogans at cafes writing 'dogs and chinese not allowed'. It resonated with the protestors so much that they were bearing the british flag. Haha. If I was in HK, I would too go and get the cash and go and riot around the airport. Maybe become more prominent and get a green card to america. And should I ever protest in America in the way these people are rioting in HK, I would only dream of being hit by rubber bullets and tear gas.
  • I dont find him handsome but there are better looking Chinese male out there with abs. I don't find him heroic. And to mainland china crying over the racism and what nots, come one... Marvel will change the story so no worries, it will be demainlandchinesetesized by the time it reaches the cinemas and the world, according to how Mainland China sees it, will be fine!
  • Chan Sai Mei is already the douchebag of all douchebags but kudos to Justice Bao The First Year which manages to make the king douchebag as the immortal douchebag that when I see Hugo, I see douchebag and that is in reference to his role, not his personal life. I quite enjoy the series even if the stories are hampered by terrible awful unforgivable bad editing that made the series choppy. I read in another article that people complain it feels dated? I quite like the dated feeling of it. Nostalgic in a way. And Shaun Tam is in fine form even if his Justice Bao needs to relax his errmmm.. behind more. He makes justice bao quite attractive in a way.
  • Can he just appear for 20% of the movie, be the mentor and then in the tradition of all marvel films, die?
  • The point of the protestors is basically there is no true democracy under the 1 country 2 systems, China has been eroding what was promised bit by bit. In short, China can't wait for 50 years to exert control.I don't understand why the protestors must stop travelers from using the airport, makes no sense but other than that, the violence is from both sides. It's a provocation and a reaction and the biggest failure is the HK govt who seems to have given up and depend on the riot police, who is at times ruled by emotions rather than cool logic and sense, the very group that is also aggravating the issues. Plus spies, paid triads and frustrated police and protestors, thus you have those violent encounters which aren't really that violent. For most part, the protestors were annoying, though some group are radicals in their methods. Luckily nothing scream no turning back. I mean stop tossing flags!vChina won't march in, they can't. If they did, it's the end for them. Famous celebs or influential people should urge the govt to talk to these people, China to allow Carrie Lam to step down and protestors must accept they are part of China. But China must honour the agreement of 50 years unchanged and not do those annoying stuff. As for stars pledging for either China, HK or most sitting on the fence, i understand must protect rice bowl. But sometimes, you must make a stand. As for robotic cowherd mentality that is Mainland chinese (netizens and all), they grew up not having the freedom to make certain choices or certain remarks so they may not know how HKers feel. They can imagine but they won't. But to have them condemn anyone with the protestors or saying they are unpatriotic or traitor or whatever is plain stupidity. Against the govt is not against the country. Not loving the govt doesn't mean not loving the country. In HK's case, HK is such a unique place. You know it is HK once you are in HK. They are like China's foreign educated golden child having studied in different international school, earning PHds elsewhere and suddenly they are told to go home to different rules and the parents agree ok for now be as you were but the parents didn't follow their agreement and asserting all sorts of stuff thru maybe the tutor, etc,It is difficult to accept. It's a difficult position. In time HK will be back to China and china will never let them go. Never.But I get Hk protestors' demands. I feel the HK govt can meet those demands. But it seems HK govt has delegated the job of communicating with people to the riot police. What a mess.
  • @funnlim omg, you and i think the same about the cast. probably a bunch of white supremacist decided on the cast. look at crazy rich asian, they have a good looking cast for the most part b/c asian people made decision on the cast.
  • @funnlim I think Tony Leung is pass being dependent on Chinese market. First, I think he has earn enough to retire if he wants to. Second, I think he acts more for the art. He won't film Hollywood movie just for the sake of being in a Hollywood movie. The project has to interest him.
  • @funnlim To be fair, Simu Liu isn't ugly, but he's not drop-dead gorgeous either. If you've watched him speak, he's actually quite charismatic. Awkwafina on the other hand... I'm speechless. I hope she only has 3 lines, gets hit by a stray bullet then dies...
  • @funnlim If The Mandarin's villainous role can span multiple sequels like Thanos. He could possibly be a hit. Tony Leung could then care less about his acting career in China and focus on Hollywood. Tony's English is actually pretty good, way better than Donnie Yen and Jackie Chan if you ask me. He has a video up on Youtube where he's giving an English interview.
  • @msxie0714 Let's not be PC. she is ugly. Ok? BUT she probably fits the role they have for her. Westerners do have this stereotype image of chinese in their minds even if we have big eyes, high cheekbones etc
  • Tony Leung shouldn't be too bothered with China. If he does well, he will have a renaissance of a career in hollywood. And it seems hollywood is hell bent on casting the ugliest chinese young men and women in this film. I don't see anything heroic with the actor cast. Maybe he is a good actor so might change my mind.
  • @funnlim I caught the part about the secret Chief Exec don't know what surgery it was and then clearly state its heart transplant too. It was in the same dialogue too so should have been easily caught the error.
  • They just want separate profile. I hope not. I hate it when celeb husband and wife refuses to have pictures taken together. Do everything together! No harm right?
  • Just saw the ending and I find I have wasted hours in it. Should have just been a medical drama but 1. the health reform fiasco - so many episodes and we have people flip flopping not because the believe in the reform or disbelieve, just when the plot asks them to. Only one who was true was Dr Lui and also YT of course but Dr Lui never really explained why he hated it and YT's end speech deserves more punch. The doctors being so highly educated, knowlegable and all, I find it ridiculous none of them picketed in from of the committee because of what they believe in. They are so docile and you know that's not HK. recent news shows HK people will rise up if they feel injustice and here, to cut A&E which is utterly dumb is something that should have TVB busting budget with CGI people protesting. Instead we have doctors doing silent protest by opening A&E which is also wrong because come on, why then need a governing body? I spent hours wondering where this is heading and in the end it heads to nowhere. So I wasted my hours watching a series WITHOUT an opinion. And the final argument never had anyone said "And you will cut A&E first", none. I can write a better argument. And government can also write a better argument. So solution? None. Raise taxes maybe. 2. Love stories - half baked. I know fans love the Zoe-Tong Ming-Kennis and Tak Chai (come one! He's a bloody dr, no one calls dr tak chai man!!) and his can't remember her name dr that I wanna slap. I like Macy better. I find the love stories a waste of time. I wanted YT to have a love life but truth is he is the sort of person who is fair as he plays dirty. Interesting. Anyway love story... where? Is there one? a couple who separated because hubby was not home on time for dinner and now he is still not home on time for dinner except they work at same place. I don't see any heart tugging love story. Oh yea, the part he ran in when she supposedly might have a deadly infectious disease. Very irresponsible, not romantic at all. 3. Medical procedures - at least some effort here. But this is one series I see a lot of use for Ultrasound. Maybe I am too used to American medical drama which is always so dramatic in the ER/A&E 4. Ending - what on earth was that for Kennis? Do I care? Nope. She can die. I just don't like the time jump. 5. Tong Ming - his hair, urgh. His genital cupping walk, urgh. He wears leather jacket to a committee meeting. No dress code? But he's a great guy even if he is flip flopping over his stance on the reform. And his so called secret relationship with chief executive was like the reform; went nowhere. Kenneth was ok because his character doesn't have much ups and downs. Being a professional doctor, he has to stay calm except that ex wife being sick part. Too calm. I don't buy him as some great expert. A friend said he looked like a taxi driver strolling into the OR. To be fair, he does doctor ok, except not like a genius doctor. 6. YT - I get his stance. I understand his predicament. But Roger seems like he was sleep walking. 7. The ladies - I actually don't find Ali or Natalie looking like doctors. I actually do feel if there;s a lady doctor who is pretty and all, it will look like Kelly Cheung. As the series went along she shed her girly innocent naive persona which I like. I think she can play Kennis. Between Ali and Natalie, Natalie seems more like a head nurse and Ali does look professional. But as expert genius doctor?I don't know. I know Kelly doesn't have much support but I find her watchable. The worst was the one dating Tak Chai. Not bothered with her name. Maybe her character is a strong one but she comes across as insanely needy and the b word. Of all characters, one character I really liked was the super strong Reporter. What's her name again? I find her consistent and I like how her character is very strong minded and knew exactly what she was doing. 8. The guys - Ram Chiang didn't look like a doctor, more so one heading A&E unless he is from China. Always envisioned China doctor looking that way. He could be a male nurse. I mean why not? The rest not much comment except poor Dr Don. One who was a doctor (still is), always play a doctor and should get more role. Matthew should switch with Stephen. Matthew wasn't believable at all. 9. Depts - kept hearing ortho, no ortho drs. So many mental case and no psychiatrist perspective? 10. Overall - oh am sure fans will say dislike the ending, but series is fresh. it isn't. Other than having actors rightly pronounce the medical terms right (for once! Only Roger faltered a bit), the entire series is same old TVB style. Nothing new. Take away the romance and kennis being sick arc and the whole useless pointless medical reform as main story and focus on patients being first, then TVB has a breakthrough that can be multiple seasons. Like season 1, focus on A&E. season 2, ortho, season 3 etc etc etc with different actors but recurring characters. Anyway, one funny scene still gets to me. YT asking the bodyguard of Chief Exec why Tong Ming was so close to CE, what surgery they did, the guy said "I don't know, it was very secretive, we didn't even know who was the surgeon until the day of the surgery" and YT asked "So you don't know what was the surgery" and guy answered "No, I don't. So it shows how confidential that heart transplant was". Oh how I laughed.

  • I hope not. I thought he was sleep walking in this series. As for Kenneth, also no. But maybe his "cupping genital area style of walking, standing, strolling" deserves an award. The english teachers deserve an award tho.
  • @funnlim eh I think he's just being PC and to give an excuse for his current behavior. my hubby is one of those self-deprivation types, and he knows it deep down, even if he denies the truth.
  • @coralie you are only deprived if you feel deprived. He didn't feel that so he wasn't even if his family was poor or wasn't rich.
