Strong roles for women in Hong Kong movies

Chung Bik-ha as Blackie in The Blade who doesn’t take any shit from nobody, even the bullies who cut the sole of her foot.

Brigitte Lin as Lien Ni-Chang and it goes without saying when she becomes the White Witch she is unmatched.

Michelle Yeoh as Sister Ko in Butterfly and Sword.

Maggie Cheung as Qiao Li in Comrades, Almost a Love Story in one of my top 10 favourite Hong Kong movies.

Maggie Cheung as Lingyu Ruan in Centre Stage.

Joey Wong as the ghost in a Chinese Ghost Story.

Karen Mok as Bak Jing-jing and Athena Chu as Zixia in A Chinese Odyssey Part 1 – Pandora’s Box, I like the scene where they keep setting Stephen Chow’s crotch on fire.

Xu Jiao as Dicky in CJ7, yes another role where a young girl plays a young boy but she is good at it.

Michelle Yeoh as Yu Shu Lien, Ziyi Zhang as Jen and Cheng Pei-Pei as Jade Fox in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Kei Gwong Hung as little Ding Dong (girl playing a boy again), Kara Hui Ying-Hung as Rainbow Sword in Demon of the Lute.

Bingbing Li as Shangguan Jing’er in Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame.

Brigitte Lin playing twins in Dragon Chronicles: Maidens of Heavenly Mountain.

Cheng Pei-pei as Chin-erh in Dragon Swamp.

Brigitte Lin as Mo-Yan and Maggie Cheung as Jade King in Dragon Inn.

Joyce Godenzi as the Cambodian guerrilla leader in Eastern Condors especially the vicious stabbing she gives to one of the baddies during the ammo cache fight scene.

Brigitte Lin as Master Asia Invincible in East is Red. She even manages to overshadow the ninja submarine in this movie and also has a bald albino ninja wearing a nappy who has carrier pigeons in his mouth.

Pop duo Twins playing the Chopstick Sisters in the movie Fantasia. You would think it would just be stupid but it is quite fun.

Zhou Xun as Ling Yanqiu and Gwei Lun-mei as Zhang Xiao Wen in Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. I liked the bandit leader more than the main hero, they wore like Ancient Chinese punks.

Josephine Siao as Miu Chui-fa in Fong Sai Yuk. “It’s shit to be chased by the dogs!” is still my favourite line from this movie.

Carina Lau as Kar ling in Forbidden City Cop, the best on-screen wife for Stephen Chow in any of his movies.

Karen Mok as Sister Turkey in God of Cookery, her character manages to bring humour and pathos to the role and she has a big heart.

Anita Mui as Wonder Woman, Maggie Cheung as Thief-Catcher Chat, Michelle Yeoh as Invisble Girl. The top of the heap for good roles for women in Hong Kong movies. There has been no better trio.

Anita Yuen as Wing in He’s a Woman, She’s a Man. A sex-change comedy but it is very sweet and honest.

Maggie Cheung as Mrs Chan in In the Mood for Love do I really need to say why?

Lily Ho as Ainu has delicious revenge against brothel madame Lady Chu played by Betty Pei Ti in the movie Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan, I have not seen a more satisfying revenge movie in a long time.

Sandra Ng as Sophie Yam the triad boss’ wife in her “hungry tigress” stage and the line “My baby has no anus” not even the most weird thing in Jiang hu: The Triad Zone which also includes Anthony Wong as a life sized household god statue.

Shu Qi as Bai Gu Jing with a dirty face in Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. Yes, I know Stephen Chow told her to “not look so pretty” in the role, but I like her roles more where she does not get naked. I did an entire page of her making funny faces http://hkmovies.timchuma.com/jttwctd_funnyface.htm

Anita Mui as Madam Sung in Justice, My Foot! where she plays the wife of Stephen Chow’s character. She has to rescue him at one point.

I love Ai Kago and Shum Ying in Kung Fu Chefs so much even though the movie is a bit bleh, she kicks arse! She reminds me of a friend who is a professional dancer and is tiny.

“Women are cunning!” is one of the main things to take away from Kung Fu Cult Master, Sharla Cheung as Chao Min, Gigi Lai as Chow Chi-yu and Chingmy Yau as Tsu Chu all do well.

Yuen Qui as the Landlady in Kung Fu Hustle steals the show, my favourite scene is when she non-verbally threatens the gang boss in the back of his car.

Yuen Qui somehow ended up in Kung Fu Mahjong by Wong Jing after the success of Kung Fu Hustle, pretty much playing the same role but in the modern day.

Hui Ying-hung as Mei-ling in the movie the Lady is the Boss takes over a kung fu school and introduces “gay dancing” and fights baddies while riding a BMX “I like it!”.

Maggie Cheung as Maggie Cheung in the movie Irma Vep is great, especially since I can’t tell what parts were made up and which were real. Her reaction when someone asks her if she is a lesbian seems pretty geunine.

Anita Mui as Yuet and Maggie Cheung as Hsien in the movie Moon Warriors that also includes the main character riding a killer whale.

Anita Mui in Yang Luming in Mr Canton and Lady Rose as she is very classy.

Karen Mok does an excellent piss take of Natalie Portman’s character from Leon the Professional in Out of the Dark. The movie is a bit dark for a comedy.

Maggie Cheung being the butt of many jokes in the Police Story movies and also getting injured by explosives in Police Story 2 🙁

Michelle Yeoh jumping a real motorbike onto a real moving train in Police Story 3.

Michelle Yeoh’s performance in general in the movie Project S.

Michelle Yeoh as Michelle in Royal Warriors.

Maggie Cheung as single mum Ellen in the movie Sausalito, yes I used to watch everything that screened at my local Chinatown Cinema.

Chen Jiajia as Kualo in the movie Seven Swords. She’s Kualo! Do I even need to say a reason? If I made a movie it would be her backstory.

Cheng Pei-pei as Miss Yang who ends up being a whipping avenger in the movie the Shadow Whip. I am sure I saw her use someone’s leg to hit himself in one scene using the whip.

Shu Qi as Lyn, Zhao Wei as Sue, Karen Mok as Officer Hung in the film So Close and “almost, but not quite” movie but it is still fun in parts. They only hint at a possible lesbian relationship which is an opportunity wasted.

Terry Lau Wai-Yue as Demon Mom in the movie Super Inframan chowing down on scenery.

Brigitte Lin as Invincible Asia in Swordsman II.

Michelle Yeoh as Inspector Ng and Cynthia Rothrock in Yes Madam. I do not need a reason.

Sylvia Chang as Superintendent Nancy Ho in Aces Go Places.

Kara Hui as Dai-Nan in My Young Auntie who seems to hate fun.

Anita Mui as Fleur in Rouge, this movie was very sad.

Memories of the Greyhound Hotel

I was going to write a whole long screed about the Greyhound Hotel
finally closing (again) but going through my photos and other reports of
gigs I had already written I thought I would just quote from them as it
would be better.

The Starliners & Cabana Smoothie Karaoke

26/5/01

Fred Negro and Steve Prictor were
hosting, which was great as Fred
is probably one of the most entertaining musicians I’ve seen perform
(it has nothing to do do with his singing I can tell you.) Steve had a
few good tricks also, like trying to do a trombone solo during one
of the acts and stuffing himself.

(First record of a gig I can find at this establishment)

 

Twits Karaoke

9/9/2001

http://twitsgivemetheshits.timchuma.com/twitskaraoke.htm

The first time I had seen the Twits, they were banned from the venue for
three years after the gig.

Karaoke 2002ish

Sticks a 100 year old cantankerous old fart
who gets around with two walking sticks – having his sticks taken off
him and Fred using them to have
a wank, then Fred and Steve setting them on fire and losing them, which
led to them trying to replace them with a horsey on a stick and a
retractable light saber.

Jesse Bates’ Birthday

Sunday night, Monday morning early

Steve at Jesse Bate's place
Steve Prictor

As I was leaving the X gig at the
Greyhound on Friday night, I ran into Jesse Bates who invited me to his
birthday that Sunday. I have seen him in quite a few bands around the
place so I decided to go after the Karaoke Oscars.
There were heaps of people there by the time I arrived and Jesse and co
were playing up a storm in the lounge room. People from several of the
bands that he drummed in played and other people joined in as they felt
like it.
Steve Prictor kissed my cheek, yuk! It was very hot in the main room so
I went out to the back yard occasionally and talked to one of the bar
staff from my local and his friends.
I left a bit after 1am, but I am sure the party went on late until the
night or at least until the police came. It was great to get the chance
to go and I will try to get to more of Jesse’s gigs in the future.

Kamikaze…BY CHRIST! I’ve photographed
over 600 bands and other performers in my five years of going to see
bands. Kamikaze, while not the worst band I have seen, are getting
pretty close. Far too much fucking around for my liking including two of
the members asking for drugs from the audience while they were meant to
be playing. I did see them in Adelaide and they were a lot better then.
Far too loud as I was sick the next day just from the noise. I had to
bugger off outside during the middle of the set.

On walking outside “YEP!
They are definitely banned!”

“Are you going to ban
them?”

“WHY BOTHER!”

THIS SHIT

introduction to Imperial Leatherman during their sound check, better get
drunk I thought. Thankfully they turned out to be fairly good and
something I wouldn’t go to see normally. Certainly not a band you would
expect at the Greyhound as they hardly ever have instrumental bands play
in the front bar.

Supposedly the karaoke was meant to go
until 1am, but the licence application hadn’t been approved so they had
to cut it off and kick everyone out at 12am. “Free Beer at the Prince!”
was the cry and everyone went outside. The last I saw of Johnny Kicks
was his arse hanging out the cab window.
