haha if you enjoyed that, you'll absolutely cream over movies like the New Legend of Shaolin or even Fong Sai Yuk....CTHD wasn't terrible, just compared to other HK movies...and for it to win an award - thats just crazy

crazy maybe, but i do think that it's got elements that other HK movies don't aspire to. the script/language is more finely crafted and deeply emotive. (the english subtitles were a shocker though) As for the action scenes, it's true they're not as great other movies out there, and really suffers when transposed to a "small" tv screen.

I liked CTHD and my view is that anything that encourages people to watch more HK movies deserves an award!
...actually thats my line on DBZ and anime as well. hmmm.

Actually it's because most only award movies [international or not] that manage a cinematic release in America [or celebrates huge success in several countries]

AND VCD SUCKS YOU GOD DAMN...

The Matrix without guns?!

The Matrix without guns is like Half-Life without Gordon Freeman!

------------------
And I look down upon these people...these,new warriors,as they are.
But I do not look down upon them with pity.Nor fear.Not even a hint of terror.
I look down upon them with hatred.Hate.The very flames of Hell themselves.
I will haunt them.Their every thought,every dream,every nightmare.Every part of their life!
They will not survive.I shall have my vengeance.

CTHD was not really an action movie. It had a few action sequences, but above and beyond all it was a "DRAMA" That means that it's meant to have meaning. It's like just beacuse the play "HAMLET" by Shakespeare has a lot of murders and plots and things doesn't make it a mystery- you will find no detectives in it. CTHD is a very good drama. If you like it then films like 'The Last Emperor' will appeal to you. It should- language barriers aside - be placed next to things like 'Schindler's List' rather than next to 'Police Story'.

Grow some sense.

That's it. I'm adding CTHD to my must see list and then borrow the video when it comes out on video. Ah, I don't have a must see list...I'll remember it!

lol...the people who accuse CTHD of sucking compared to other HK cinema are truly movie schmoes. It just wasnt meant to be balls to the wall HK actionorama (which I also love btw...)

CTHD was as close to a trancendant movie as I've ever seen. The fight scenes were truly breathtaking, taken in context of the script. Far more subtle and emotion driven than any other HK movie I've seen...check that, most movies I've ever seen.
