    November 26, 2007 Great voice Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I haven't been following the HK music scene for years, due to the number of samey pretty boy/girl acts. When I first heard Janice, I thought she was something special and not just a pretty face. This album might be covers of Leon classics, but Janice makes them her own with her charms and that unique voice. As far as talent goes, she is more like Western artists. The album isn't perfect, but as far as artistic expression goes, its a great start.

    February 6, 2007 The classic touch Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    A touch of Zen is one of those classic movies that you must see if you a fan of a wuxia, because it sets a certain benchmark. This movie was made back in the days when you didn't have all the flashy wires and slick CGI, but this is what makes it one of the greats. The director made use of timing, music and atmosphere. The movie starts off slow, but slowly pulls you into the story and wanting more. Just as you thought it was all over, comes part two and which is just as gripping as the first half. This movie is a great wuxia epic and deserves more recognition. Sadly, it has only been shed some light as a footnote of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and House of Flying Daggers. But then again Sir Alec Guinness will always be famous for being in Star Wars. King Wu was one of the most talented directors of his generation and one with vision.

    December 16, 2006 Very good TV drama - Buy it! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Yuen Woo Ping brings to this production much of the cast from his Tai-Chi Boxer movie (aka Tai-Chi II) and makes this one of the best kung fu TV series for a long time. Bringing colourful and vibrant kung fu with comedy, moral education and romance together. Wu Jing is an excellent kung fu actor, with charm and humility. The Tai-Chi is real, but it is executed as it would be from the long-hand form and not San-Shou applications. Also note the character "Dong Han-Shing" is a BaGua fighter and the dual between him and Wu Jing's character is a must-see. BaGua is rarer and is worth seeing a contemporary art to Tai-Chi. Please note that this drama is loosely based on the life of Yang Lu-Chan, founder of Yang Style. Few could take Tai-Chi and make it work in a kung fu production, yet Yuen Woo Ping has done so three times. But it, watch it and enjoy it.

    December 5, 2006 When HK cinema was great Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    The 36th Chamber of Shaolin is a classic kung fu movie that everybody who knows and enjoys the genre talks about. Oddly and sadly, not officially available in the UK. Oddly, it must be really good to not be able to find a copy in HK. Having got my copy from Yesasia, I was very pleased to find that the pictures have been restored to a high standard. Very little scratches and only the colour gives it away as an old movie. The fights scenes are good and directer Lau Gar Leung shows us how good he was back then and his brother Gordon Lau proves to be a professional martial artist and actor. This is real martial arts and real action. Considering the technology of the time, this movie has to been seen. The movie appeals on many levels, as it is not just about fighting, but the Buddhist teachings that run throughout the movie. There is a reason for the violence and unlike modern cinema in both East and West, it is not mindless or silly. Moral education and martial arts go hand in hand.

    December 1, 2006 Trip down memory lane Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Ever had a desire to listen to old soundtrack songs from the 80's? Ever wondered if it was possible to find music that old on CD? Too embarrassed to ask? Well this CD is the answer. Whilst it doesn't have everything, it is enough to keep most people happy. Enough to keep my parents quiet in the car. I haven't heard some of these songs since I was a kid, so it is nice to hear them again. It would be nice if they increased the number of CDs and chop off the medly at the end of CD 2. It is the only thing that ruins it. Would be nice if TVB would release something like this, with all their classic from the 70's-80's. This set of CDs is worth every penny...

    November 15, 2006 Beyond The Ultimate Collection Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    There is often a problem with bands that have released a lots of hits and many albums after a number of years. If they release a greatest hits compilation, what should be in it? They are rarely a win-win for all, as what you want might not be there and it probably won't be in their next compilation. I think this 3CD+1DVD set is a winner, they've got enough songs to make spending worthwhile. If only Western acts would release sets like this. BUY IT, you won't regret it.

    November 15, 2006 Patience! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This kung fu movie is not like you average kung fu movie. There isn't that much fighting at all. All but at the end. After all, Tai Chi is not about aggression, violence and hurting people. Patience and tolerance is everything and the protagonist "Ku Ding" demonstrates that. That until the end, when he must kill. That is what Tai Chi is about and what good kung fu schools should preach. Unlike other Tai Chi movies, the Tai Chi is this movie is less about grace and more about practical application. It would have been nice to have Cantonese audio as well as Manderin. This movie was the actor Mr Chen's first and last movie, a movie that should not be forgotten.

    September 8, 2006 Charming and different Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This movie is called "Tai Chi Boxer" in the UK and it is a great movie to watch. Wu Jing is shows us that he is a great martial artist and actor, he has both charm and talent. Whilst the story is a bit weak. The action and fight scenes are not. What is also good is the lack of aggression from the main character, he is a gentleman and has humility, yet strong. This is what Tai Chi is about. This movie has humour, romance as well as action. Wu Jing has grace, whilst Jet Li has power and I look forward to seeing more of his movies.
