Any fans of the KING OF COMEDY, Stephen Chow?



Kung Fu Hustle now on DVD: peep Amazon

Filmography:

http://www.lovehkfilm.com/people/chow_stephen.htm

Man. I've seen all his movies, from his TV shit to now. Dude is an underrated dramatic actor too.


San Miguel CMs - the finest brew in the world :P

one of my favorites...."TRICKY BRAINS"


There are a TONS of Stephen Chow movies I could recommend, comparing them to his recent CGI stuff, they seem real cheesy but that makes them EVEN FUNNIER.

I thought you were going to talk about his movie King of Comedy (which really should be named King of Actor or something)

I bought the DVD of Kung Fu Hustle at the beginning of the year.  Its just now being released in my country in the cinemas this week.  I might go watch it again just to see SC glory on the big screen.  :)

I'm a big fan of his.  Every chance I get, I will make a joke referring to memorable lines from his movies.  Heh, yeah, I'm a dork.  You don't know how many times I recited the lines of "Jeung Bao" from Shaolin Soccer.

As of right now, my favourite movie of his is Hail The Judge.  It may change if any of his future work exceeds the comedy level of that film.

I've only seen Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer, and Fight Back to School. I've been meaning to check out a lot more of his stuff. It kinda sucks though because there used to be a shop that sold a shit load of chinese movies a half an hour from my home, but they suddenly closed down a little while ago.

Just watched All's Well Ends Well, pretty mad stuff there heh.  And Maggie Cheung goodness  :D

But I didn't find Kung Fu Hustle very funny.  He's done way better stuff in the past.

^ I'm kinda iffy on him doing the Special Effects kung fu stuff. His classics was when he was doing like 7 movies a year. So many cheap gags...where to start. Like how about the one with Andy Lau where he cons him to be his long lost brother!??! That was the shit. I gotta seriously dig out soundbites and video clips... :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I loved watching his stuff! He's spoofed nearly everything possible! My mom would give me dirty looks whenever I did coz she thinks that he's mad, but I still watched. :P I've not watch 'Kung Fu Hustle' yet though. It's off-screens now so if I want to I'll have to get the video...

Stephen Chow is indeed a funny man. Shaolin Soccer is definetly one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, and Kung Fu hustle, was eh.

There are a lot of cool Cantonese stuff! You should be proud of being Cantonese ^_^

(I'm not Cantonese, but I do think every country has their good and bad stuff).

There are a TONS of Stephen Chow movies I could recommend esp. the old ones, comparing them to his recent CGI stuff, they seem real cheesy but that makes them EVEN FUNNIER. He was making like over a dozen films A YEAR! the scripts were horrible, but it was the inside jokes u had to get...

Still. His physical humor is worth watching if you don't understand Cantonese. Like Tricky Brains keeps coming to mind. Here he plays this con artist who is hired to play a joke on Andy Lau (aka the Canto pop star and Infernal Affairs dude with no facial hair)

See him pretend he's gay with AIDS, reference his old kiddie show, break out into Canto Opera and vaudeville act....one of his best movies!!



And the fuckin best thing about Stephen Chow is that he hires all his buddies so you can see them throughout his movies. Like Man Tat, who hails from waay back in his TV days and is always like his dad and stuff.



and Lee Kin Yan, the blatant cross dresser that appears EVERYWHERE...even in those San Miguel CMs!! :lmao:
