I liked it but Windstruck is hella sad. it's not as funny as the first one at all.

My Sassy Girl was a much better movie than its spiritual successor Windstruck I thought.. Windstruck seemed too unoriginal and contrived at times, like it was trying to recapture the feeling of Sass..

There is going to be an AMERICAN remake of alot of the Asian movies.

INFERNAL AFFAIRS - supposedly it was going to be brad pitt and matt damien.

Either way, I wouldn't watch any of the American versions because I feel the flavor would just be lost through the process of re-making it. Even the movie version of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon lost alot of meaning, it was a remake of a soap series.

"My Sassy Girl" - is a pretty cool movie, interesting twist just like alot of the korean movies.

noooooooo not Infernal Affairs.. everyone realized what a crappy trilogy it was a couple months after its 3 incredibly-overhyped releases. not sure how Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock will do trying to recapture the feeling behind My Sassy Girl; at its heart, the movie is still about teenage/20-year old insecurities..

BTW I'm not sure if most people are familiar with this, but in Chinese/HK cinema, a lot of times popular actors were chosen for the cast of a certain movie simply because of their status as a musical pop icon. For example, in Infernal Affairs, Kelly Chen, Leon Lai, and Edison Chen were all music stars before their entrance onto the big screen- the fact that there were so many musical celebrities on the Infernal Affairs cast is part of what made it so big

I don't know what you don't like about it, but I actually found the trilogy pretty darn awesome, well the third one wasn't all that great, but the 2nd one was my favorite. Then again, I like all mafia movies. From Godfather, to Young and Dangerous all 12 of them (that includes the background stories of each characters.)

I think in general all the chinese actors first were music artist first. A chinese celeb requirement seems to must have both musical and acting talent.

Some Korean movies that I like were: Shiri, Taeguki, and My Wife is Gangster 1 and 2.
French Movie: Taxi 1-3 (fixed up Peugot, evos in the 3rd one)
Chinese: Hero, Flying Daggers were very artistic. Young and Dangerous series. The old Jet Li HK movies.
Brazil: City of God - that is CRAZY movie....don't know how to describe but it was awesome.
