Answers to Can You Guess All The Moviesc Take Seven!

15 December 2014 9:50 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I did it! I finally presented an installment of my "Guess the Movies" puzzles where one of the movies was never guessed. To be honest, I don't really intend for you to never guess all the movies, but to create a puzzle where only one doesn't get guessed, I think, is a pretty good day as it means I created a damn near perfect puzzle. In all honesty, I'm impressed people guessed #8, #12, #13 and #16, but it was #5 that stumped you all and I actually included it along with #21, which I thought might throw some of you off, but #5 is an image from Joon-ho Bong's 2009 film Mother, definitely not an easy one. That said, here are the answers to this latest graphic.

Jeff Robinov's Studio 8 to Remake Hong Kong Surveillance Thriller 'Overheard'

27 November 2014 5:41 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hong Kong surveillance thriller Overheard is to get an English-language remake according to Chinese production company Bona Film Group, which will cooperate with Jeff Robinov's Studio 8 on the remake. The film is part of Studio 8's debut slate of releases. Robinov was Warner Bros.' chief when the studio remade Infernal Affairs as The Departed, while Bona's chief operating officer Jeffrey Chan, who confirmed the two companies were working on the project, was with Media Asia when the original Overheard was made. Written and directed by Alan Mak and Felix Chong, two of the three writers behind the international hit

China’s Bona Film Teams With Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8 on ‘Overheard’ Remake

26 November 2014 7:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – China’s Bona Film Group has pacted with Jeff Robinov’s new Studio 8 outfit to produce an English-language version of Chinese-language thriller “Overheard.”

The film is among three titles understood to form part of Studio 8’s debut slate.

Bona and Studio 8 have a common shareholder in Chinese conglomerate Fosun International, which is a founder investor in Studio 8 and is the second largest owner of publicly-traded Bona.

Robinov was head of Warner Brothers at the time the studio backed Martin Scorsese’s “Departed,” a remake of another Hong Kong thriller “Infernal Affairs.”

“The strategic relationship is really important here,” said Bona’s COO Jeffrey Chan, who was at Media Asia at the time of “Departed,” and who will be a producer on the “Overheard” remake. “And so too are the past relationships between the film-makers and Jeff Robinov, and the creative package.”

Undaunted, Hong Kong Stars Court China Ire With Occupy Central Support

30 October 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

At the beginning of October, Hong Kong actor and international star Chow Yun-fat became one of the few high-profile local celebrities to speak out on the pro-democracy protests in his native country. Over the past week, a backlash has started to brew against Chow and others who have lent their support to the demonstrators. The stars, of whom Chow is arguably the most famous outside Asia, are the latest this year to take potentially risky positions on global political issues. This summer, Spanish and Korean filmmakers including Pedro Almodovar and Park Chan-wook, denounced Israel’s involvement in the violence in Gaza, sparking ire from onlookers around the world, but no visible impact on their careers. In this case, the Hong Kong bold-faced names are speaking out about a situation that is right in their own backyard — and that backyard belongs to an increasingly disgruntled China where much of their money is made. »

Film Review: ‘Gangster Pay Day’

28 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In every department, from casting to cinematography, “Gangster Pay Day” taps into the spirit of the 1980s and ’90s golden age of Hong Kong crime movies, which started to wane around the same time Great Britain’s lease on the territory expired. Toplining a terrific Anthony Wong as a weary mob boss who helps a spirited young woman stand up to nasty property developers, this Cantonese-language crime-comedy-romance ought to strike a winning chord with local auds at a time when strong feelings of identity and self-determination are in the air. Pic will also appeal to offshore auds that discovered Hong Kong cinema during its action-movie heyday. Following its world preem as the closing-night attraction at Busan, “Gangster Pay Day” opens in Hong Kong on Nov. 6.

With nary a gun in sight and only a few scenes involving fisticuffs, the pic is primarily concerned with how hard it’s become for »

Film Review: ‘Revenge of the Green Dragons’

28 October 2014 1:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A movie that only comes to life — and then just barely — in its moments of tooth-pulling, finger-slicing, gut-twisting violence, “Revenge of the Green Dragons” offers a flashy but unrewarding intro to the vicious Chinese-American youth gangs that ran amok in Queens in the 1980s and ’90s. The latest and least in a series of baton passes between Martin Scorsese (credited as an exec producer) and the Hong Kong film industry (represented by co-directors Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo), this crudely made thriller plays like a stilted Cantonese riff on organized-crime cliches, substituting blood and brutality for novelty or insight. Scorsese’s imprimatur could give the A24 release a commercial boost Stateside, but lackluster critical response will keep crossover biz at a trickle.

There’s no underestimating the influence that Scorsese’s movies have had on the ranks of Asian action cinema, a connection that was cemented when he made “The Departed, »

Directors Andrew Lau And Andrew Loo Talk Revenge Of The Green Dragons

26 October 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Based on actual crimes committed by the Chinatown gangs of late 1980s, Revenge of the Green Dragons is a gritty, real-life nightmare.  I chatted with co-directors Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs, Young and Dangerous) and Andrew Loo about partnering with executive producer Martin Scorsese and the challenges of bringing the Green Dragons back to the streets of New York City. The Lady Miz Diva:  What brought this story to your attention? Andrew Loo:  After we finished The Flock with Richard Gere, we decided at that point there was an opportunity to collaborate together on an English-language coproduction that Green Dragons helps define.  We were approached a pair of producers in New York who optioned the article, Revenge of the Green Dragons, by Frederick Dannen. So they...

Exclusive Interview with Harry Shum Jr. for ‘Revenge of the Green Dragons’

24 October 2014 7:54 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

From the producer Martin Scorsese, “Revenge of the Green Dragons” looks at the real Asian gang that terrorized the streets of New York City in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The story followed two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survived child poverty by joining the Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons.” The brothers climbed through the ranks quickly, which drew the attention of the New York City Police Department. After an ill-fated love affair that pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him on who is he.

Latino-Review had an exclusive telephone interview with Harry Shum Jr., who played the mysterious and merciless gang leader Paul Wong in the film. We talked about the Asian gangs, Paul Wong and switching gears in acting away from “Glee” TV shows and “Step Up” movies.

‘Revenge of the Green Dragons’: Ambition is not enough

23 October 2014 9:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Revenge of the Green Dragons

USA/China, 2014

Written by Andrew Loo and Michael Di Jiacomo

Directed by Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo

The problem with the new Revenge of the Green Dragons is that co-director Andrew Lau and executive producer Martin Scorsese are already joined at the hip over a previous story, which Lau made as Infernal Affairs before Scorsese re-made it as The Departed. Although Revenge of the Green Dragons is an entirely different type of story than those two films, it will inevitably be compared to them, as well as every other classic that the two men have made, and it suffers badly from the comparison.

Of all the films in Lau’s and Scorsese’s catalogs, this most closely resembles Goodfellas, right down to the omnipresent voiceover narration by the lead character. Sonny (Justin Chon of the Twilight series) immigrates to America as a small child, and »

Revenge Of The Green Dragons Review

23 October 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Revenge Of The Green Dragons is supposed to be a historically relevant glimpse into the Queens gang scene circa 1980, it feels very much like a cartoonish riff off of Walter Hill’s The Warriors. The Scorsese-produced film comes with a certain pedigree since Wai-keung Lau (Infernal Affairs) represents half of the directorial duo, joined by Andrew Loo, yet the clunky narrative scripted by Loo and Michael Di Jiacomo fails to properly grasp the thematic gravity of illegal immigration. The Green Dragons are the baddest mamma jammas this side of Queens, yet their foolishly ambitious nature only paves a cinematic road towards random gang shootouts, weightless acting and a faulty focus on pulpy action over more emotionally jarring factors about immigrants chasing the American dream.

The story follows Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu), two brothers who are inducted into a Chinese street gang at a very early age. »

Review: Martin Scorsese Produced, Andrew Lau Co-Directed 'Revenge Of The Green Dragons' Is A Total Mess

21 October 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“There’s a storm coming detective, and I don’t know of any umbrellas that will keep this city dry,” says the protagonist of “The Revenge Of The Green Dragons” at one point. It’s spoken with a sincerity that had us scratching our heads in bewilderment, a statement that’s not exactly directed at this ludicrous, over-the-top mess of a movie, but at Martin Scorsese, who will have his name forever attached to it. Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo team up for directing duties (Lau’s “Infernal Affairs” gives you hope) with Scorsese executive producing. On paper, the film looked like it could be a boatload of extravagant, gun-toting fun. Little did we know that, in reality, reading “Martin Scorsese Presents” in the opening credits would be the closest this movie comes to being great. Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) are two Chinese-American brothers, who grew up in late-80s Queens, »

Dragon Seed: Lau & Loo’s Dissatisfying NYC Chinese Gang Saga

Martin Scorsese appears as executive producer on Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo’s Revenge of the Green Dragons, which is no surprise considering he famously remade Lau’s 2002 film Infernal Affairs as The Departed (2006). Featuring a gritty period portrait of gangland warfare in New Your City, it’s clearly the sort of material that Scorsese seems to be attracted to, and thematically, one could even say there are influences of titles like Mean Streets (1973) or Goodfellas (1990) in the mix, with slight homages here and there. But the similiarites are only skin deep. This saga, which is actually based on fact, feels too zany and forthright, any realistic human elements crushed beneath its predilection for exaggerated, dramatic performances and hyperviolence.

Justin Chon Loves These 5 Gang-Related Movies & TV Shows

15 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You might know Justin Chon as the star of the raunchy comedy "21 & Over," but this fall, the actor gets serious in the bloody crime film "Revenge of the Green Dragons."

Set in 1989 New York, the action movie follows two immigrant brothers who join the ranks of a Chinatown gang to survive the impoverished city. Before long, the brothers draw the unwanted attention of New York's hard-boiled cops. "Revenge of the Green Dragons" also unites crime film veteran Martin Scorsese (Executive Producer) with Hong Kong-born director Andrew Lau. As you may remember, Scorsese famously adapted Lau's "Infernal Affairs" (2004) into the Oscar-winning "The Departed" (2006).

Chon recently revealed his five favorite gangster movies and TV shows to Moviefone. He had us at "Cool Hand Luke."

"Revenge of the Green Dragons" is available on DirecTV now and hits theaters October 24. »

58th BFI London Film Festival – Black Coal, Thin Ice (2014)

26 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Coal, Thin Ice, 2014.

Directed by Yi’nan Diao.

Starring Fan Liao, Lun Mei Gwei, Xuebing Wang, Jinchun Wang and Ailei Yu.

Synopsis:

An ex cop and his ex partner decide to follow up on investigation of a series of murders that ended their careers and shamed them, when identical murders begin again.

Winner of this year’s coveted Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, Black Coal, Thin Ice comes upon a huge wave of both expectation and critical acclaim. Lauded with such positivity increases the pressure on the film to truly deliver, but despite its technical brilliance and flashes of greatness, Black Coal is ultimately a huge disappointment.

Beginning in 1999 in the Chinese suburbs, Black Coal follows Zhang Zhili (Silver Bear winner Fan Liao) a young police detective who is thrust into a case against a serial killer who is a fan of decapitating his victims and then dumping the parts into coalmines. »

Toronto Showcases Wide Range of Asian Films

7 September 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

More than any festival outside the Asian region, Toronto serves up the widest range of contemporary Asian cinema each year.

The festival can perhaps thank the city’s multi-cultural makeup: Toronto has significant Indian and East Asian populations. And the festival can be grateful for its large scale, which allows it more room to cover the diversity of the world’s most prolific filmmaking region than smaller events.

But credit also should go to Asian programmer Giovanna Fulvi and Tiff’s chief selector Cameron Bailey, who makes several trips per year to the region and is personally responsible for the selection

of Indian films.

Bailey has been credited with popularizing the term “Hindie,” short for “Hindi indie.” It reflects the trend for internationally aware and financially savvy Indian filmmakers to break ranks with the country’s traditional film financing sources (and some Bollywood stereotypes), and instead use co-productions and private »

'Revenge of the Green Dragons' (2014) Movie Review

7 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"There's a storm coming, and I don't know of any umbrella that can keep the city dry." This is an actual quote from Revenge of the Green Dragons, an awful movie if I've ever seen one and a baffling one at that as Martin Scorsese has attached his name to the picture as an executive producer, presumably as a nod to co-writer and co-director Andy Lau going back to when Scorsese adapted Infernal Affairs into the Oscar winner The Departed. Fair enough, but Lau makes more than enough films and Scorsese didn't need to come within a mile of this one and tarnish his reputation. Then again, perhaps this 94-minute cut isn't the only cut of the film out there. The trailer certainly includes shots that aren't in the film and the characters are so poorly established there has to be more than what I saw. Of course, that won't »

‘Brick Mansions’ Blu-ray Review

6 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Gouchy Boy, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa, Carlo Rota, Andreas Apergis, Richard Zeman, Robert Maillet, Bruce Ramsay | Written by Luc Besson, Bibi Naceri | Directed by Camille Delamarre

Hollywood remaking a foreign film is far from a new phenomenon, and adaption in this manner has yielded some truly great films. We have seen such successes like Seven Samurai  transformed into The Magnificent Seven, and Infernal Affairs  altered into The Departed.

On the other hand, there are movies like Brick Mansions. This remake of the Luc Besson / Pierre Morel French parkour action fest District B13  has much in common with the original including plot structure, action sequences, and even shares one of the co-leads. What it lacks is energy, craftsmanship, and originality.  Fans of the original have little reason to examine this new take, and those coming in fresh will also find it difficult enjoy this tired dud of an action movie. »
