COMMENT DU JOUR
Adapting "Guardians" -a screenwriting interview

I especially like that part about how boundaries can be a good thing. Knowing where the plot points have to hit always stops me from wandering aimlessly in my writing. Some may see those thing as cookie cutter but I've always found them inspiring.❞ -Daniel

Happy (Belated) 50th to Tony Leung Chiu Wai

I can't believe I forgot yesterday. He's only one of the world's best movie stars. He celebrated without me with a tiny balloon and modest cake.

How do you say "I love you Tony!" in Cantonese and/or Mandarin?

The hottest 50 year old man I know of. Especially in Happy Together.

Is anyone really a big movie star in the world if they're not famous in America?

June 28, 2012 | Unregistered Commenter4rtful

4rtful -- um, yes. Ever heard of Bollywood?also: The Asian markets in particular definitely have massive stars that aren't famous here.

June 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNathaniel R

In Cantonese: Aww Oye Lay, Chiu Wai!
In Mandarin: Wo I Ni, Chao Wei!

I love this man

HAPPY BIRTHDAY =D

June 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCarl

He looks adorable in that picture, which is surprisingly dissimilar from his almost gentlemanly-yet-manly image/persona. Birthdays rule!

June 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaolo

Hmm, and I thought you said Happy Birthday to Tony Leung sort of like "Hmm, mmmm, oh, mmmm, yeah!" Snerk.

lol,In Mandarin you can say: Wa I ni, chao wait

You also totally missed Streep's b'day on the 20th

I would love it if he can get an Oscar nomination. Shouldn't he have several by now?

June 28, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterkin

Thanks Ric -- i'll use it if i meet him ;)

I cant believed he's turned 50 and an international star. I watched him for like 20 something years back in the days ( 80s)when he was a nobody staring in numerous hong kong tv series.

loved him like crazy in Lust Caution, ITMFL and Hero. i just saw Happy Together for the first time a few months ago, and I'm thinking that I should put a few more Wong Kar Wai/Tony Leung collaborations in my movie queue this summer.
