Hong Kong Cinema on Your TV


One of my guilty pleasures of late has been taping Super Cinema Night on OMNI.2, every Saturday at 9pm. The period dramas about Ming Dynasty warlords that I remember flipping past in years gone by have been replaced by more contemporary (and watchable) fare.

Two gems in the past couple of weeks have been Running on Karma, a bizarre take on M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, and My Left Eye Sees Ghosts a parody of the Pang Brothers’ horror The Eye.

If either you or your VCR have nothing better to do on a Saturday night, check it out!

    On a related note, if you haven’t seen Shaolin Soccer yet, check it out. It’s a hilarious parody of martial arts movies, with wire-fu, CGI, and great, old-fashioned acrobatics. It’s playing the Festival Cinema circuit around town. Apparently, this movie has set box office records in Hong Kong for domestic-made movies.
