shaolin soccer is fucking genious. way better than kung-fu hustle. i never saw the dub except for on trailors and even that made me cringe. i heard they cut things out of the dub release too... odd.

nobody's mentioned God of Cookery!! that has got to be near the top of my list for stephen chow movies!! anyways.. quick summary.. stephen chow is like the god of the cooking world, [hence the title] but he actually cant cook and uses gangster relations and money to buy out the other chefs.. but then he is betrayed by his partner [ng man tat] and becomes a poor man living in the red light district of hon kong. there he meets some gangsters and they invent a new product called pissing meat ball by combining the pissing shrimp and the meatball.. it sells very well and he earns the right to compete for the god of cookery title. but first he goes to china to find a cooking school which turns out to be a shaolin temple.. there he learns kung fu and cooking and wins the competition.

anyone with screencaps or other stuff please post since i have none..

Good Of Cookery is the shit! It's at least as good if not better than Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer. The scenes with the Shaolin bronzemen were hilarious :lol:

Hmm... I wonder if I still have that movie.

hmm another one is god of gamblers 2.. which also features andy lau and ng man tat.. andy and stephen made a great comedy combo but ndy has moved on into "serious" acting :doh:

the story is on stephen and his uncle [ng man tat] and how stephen has a special power that allows him to see through things and to change things.. so his uncle tries tog et him to enter the gambling world by becoming the apprentice of the GOD of gamblers [chow yun fat] *although he doesnt appear in the movie* and they try to reach him by talking to god of gamblers disciple, gambling warrior? [andy lau] and many funny moments ensue but these gansters who want revenge and try to use gambling warriors name to trick money of rich people on a gambling boat and so stephen and andy must try and stop them by winning against them although the gansters have set up the boat with cameras and mircophones :P

eheh this is a really good movie and id reccoment it to all stephen chow fans.. theres also:

god of gamblers [starring andy lau and chow yun fat] it has no stephen chow so i wont talk about it in this thread

saint of gamblers [starring stephen chow and ng man tat] this explains the history of how stpehn got into gambling]

saint of gambling 2 [stephen chow gets transported into the past and meets people from a tv show]

ye.. all i can remember atm.. there are numerous spoof movies that use the god of gamblers name so look wisely!! :evil:

Stephan Chow is truly the King of Comedy, i had been watching his movies since I was a kid with my parents.  They love his movies.  They call him the master of "no sense" comedy because sometimes in the movies he does thing that makes no sense, but still hilariously funny.  Kung Fu Hustle is one of my favorites.  I also like the Royal Tramp 1 and 2 very much.  Also the Chinese Odessey pt 1 and 2.  the Fight Back to School trilogy was cool, but i liked the first one best. God of Gamblers 3: Back to Shanghai was a very good one for me, But check out the other god of gamblers as well, even the one without Stephan Chow because they're that good.

well. it was one of his earlier movies i think? but yeh.. not as good as per say.. the fight back to school ones.. but then agian.. i dont think kung fu hustle and shaolin soccer are THAT great.. i liked traditional stpehn chow without all the special affects and stuff.. cuz the comedy was more real? but in this age.. every movie needs some FX i guess..

Sure! He is the king of comedy. Luckily, I live in Hong Kong. So, I have watched almost all of his movies. They can still make me laugh when I watch them again after 10 years. Does you guy know he perform in a kid programme when he began his career?

I just hope the next generation will be able to appreciate his work as much as we do currently.  It'll be tough though cause some of the younger kids might not understand the cultural references he makes or may not have seen the movies he parodies.
