lET'S GO TO 72 TENANTS OF PROSPERITY 2010,this movie is contain many genres such as love, action, horror, comedy, little adult* lol, and romance. In 1970s Hong Kong, rapacious landlords try to evict 72 tenants but sworn brothers Ha Kung (Eric Tsang) and Shek Kin (Jacky Cheung) help the group of 72 defeat the landlord (Lam Ka Tung) and landlady (Charmaine Sheh) and coincidentally rescue Pinky (Anita Yuen) from a planned forced marriage. When both sworn brothers fall for Pinky and propose to her, she flips a coin heads or tails and Ha wins her hand in marriage.At first, is not flipping coin but is WHO CAN PEE THE MOST FAR AND LONG DISTANCE!!..here you totally stunned by them especially they act like "cowboy show"
The sworn brothers become sworn enemies and Sheks hatred fuels intense rivalry against Ha in business dealings ranging from the manufacture of plastic flowers to the selling of stinky bean curd. Even after 40 years they continue to clash and in 2010 they are in keen competition selling electronics appliances in Sai Yeung Choi Street, Mongkok, the busiest street in the city and still home to the 72 tenants.
In fiercely competitive Sai Yeung Choi Street high rents force businessmen to use every means to survive, with electronics shops employing pseudo models in sales promotion campaigns and comic shops offering foot-massage services by Lolita(Nancy Sit), etc.This part is totally u will say OMG!! These ploys are minor compared with the tactics of the landlord (mainland actor) who threatens to close down the shops unless his demands for triple rental are met. Amidst this strife and struggle the street is hit by acid-attacks and in high spirits the 72 tenants unite and pledge to safeguard their home.Then, all tenants have meeting in natalie Chan coffee shop and another hilarious scene explode here again LOl His coffee shop seal by government agent(Dicky CHeung). The agent is like terminator LOL
another part in coffee shop,Eric Tsang want to say Try your best but in the end say 'cha(Grab)your Chest!!(^_^) Actually provoked by Jacky cheung that you shortie low-educated and simple english "try your best' also cannot say properly lol Moreover, Eric Tsang say cha(grab) the girl chest beside Jacky (picture above. Then, she stand fiercely and jacky act coward and act like very high educated and run away from the conflict LOL
Against a background of fear and turmoil, with the old love triangle between Ha and Pinky and Shek still festering, the next generation of the Ha and Shek families embarks on their own heroic love affairs: MJ-style dancer Ha Junior (Bosco Wong) is fascinated by Shek's daughter (Stephy Tang) who is a Japanese AV culture fan; Ha's daughter (Linda Chung), a kung fu maiden act like Ip man( thanks to Donnie Yen movie), is pursued by Shek's love-struck son (Wong Cho Lam), the smart shortie. Affairs of the heart yet to be resolved.The shotrie totally make lot of hilarious scenes such as " I want 10" when shortie and linda prison in the lift...actually not means i want fight ten just like IP Man say to Japanese General.. but he wants linda chung KISS HIM TEN TIMES LOL, another part is my favorite scene, the shortie imitate God Of Singer, Jacky Cheung sing Eternal Love( Oi Si Weng Hang) hahahaha~!
ANYWAY, YOU WILL NO REGRET WATCHING THIS MOVIE CAUSE THIS MOVIE IS THE BEST OF CHINESE NEW YEAR MOVIE 2010.
Another movie that I reviewed was CONFUCIUS, the main actor Confucius will act by Chow Yun Fat(our famous hero FAt Kor-God of gambler and A Better Tomorrow-Taiko/boss) This movie got complaints and controversy that why Chow Yun Fat act in this movie? he is not suitable because he is Taiko or Boss figure. In other way, Confucius is a scholar and great philosopher. Anyway, i feel those people just making wrong perception because The director find Chow because his acting is very good and able bring out different emotion in different situation perfectly.An true actor is able to perform multi-characters. Therefore, the past character of Chow doesn't mean can justify him forever as taiko or mafia boss character.
Well..let's go to the summary of the movie, Conficius is an avid learner and smart. Before he reach aged 30, already mastered 6 skills such as music, archery, literature, drawing and cavalry.So, he already got some fame in his town. But he has low status in society so may not get well-known to everyone. Acient China those days, it is very particular about the status such aristocrat family, royal family and businessman family.Besides, you may always heard "I will play chess with Duke Zhou" means i go take nap or sleep.
Actually this saying is come from Kong Niu(Confucius) because Confucius idol lol is Duke Zhou and always want to dream duke Zhou while sleeping( regent of Zhou dynasty before Spring and autumn era.Frankly, this part didnt show in the movie so i just bring out the background of Confucius if not, you totally don't understand this movie and may get bored to those don't like history. But Confucius movie really give you learn what is "principal", "determination", "Loyalty", "Respect" and "wise".It is very meaningful movie.
In the age of warring Chinese states, during which countless wars were waged to unify kingdoms, the King of Lu gets help from highly influential philosopher Confucius to regain his power. Confucius uses his intelligence and charisma to save the state of Lu from inner conflict and perpetual war. However, the political powerhouses of the state start to feel threatened by the philosopher, fearing that they may lose their control over the puppet king. Confucius goes willingly into exile, wandering from state to state without losing his ideals for peace and harmony.
Above is trailer and themesong of Confucius sing by Faye Wong. Faye sing out very compatible with this movie and I feel faye songs are always unique and nice. No matter whaT don't give up..You will learn this from Confucius movie.
