Stephen Chow gained international fans with his last two movies, namely Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle – especially teenage fans and people in their twenties. CJ7 is his attempt to gain access to a even younger audience, as it really is a children movie – what a pity! To be brutally honest, CJ7 is Chow’s more crazy interpretation of Disney’s Blubber or Flubber or whatever the name of that Robin Williams comedy was. Of course CJ7 features a more asian humor, but it’s way more family-friendly than his previous works. Chow plays a poor construction site worker named Ti, alone with his son. To provide a better future for his child, he spends every cent earned for an expensive private school for him. No money is left for toys, but lucky Ti finds a big gum ball on a trash site while searching for goods in the middle of the night. This ‘toy’ eventually finds his way into the hands of his boy, who is even able to ‘activate’ it into an cute alien being – chaos and fun start. The biggest problem this movie has is it’s running time: Just when the movie is about to find it’s […]
周星驰获得国际歌迷与他的上两部影片，分别是少林足球和功夫-尤其是十几岁的歌迷和人民在二十多岁。 cj7是他企图获得更年轻的观众，因为它的确是一个儿童电影-真是非常可惜！ 被残酷地诚实， cj7是议员的更加疯狂的解释，迪士尼的blubber或flubber或其他任何名义表示，罗宾威廉斯喜剧是。 当然cj7具有更多的亚洲幽默，但它的方式更加关爱家庭，比他以往的作品。 周扮演一个贫穷的地盘工人，命名为钛，单独与他的儿子。 为了提供一个更美好的将来，他的孩子，他所花的每一分钱都获得了一个昂贵的私人学校为他的。 没有钱，是留给玩具，但幸运的钛认定一个大胶球上的垃圾站点，同时寻找物品，在半夜时分。 这’玩具’ ，最终认定其进入交给他的男孩，更是无法’激活’ ，它成为一个可爱的外星人正-混沌与乐趣的开始。 最大的问题，这部电影已是它的运行时间：当电影是找到它的正确发展步伐和速度，它已经结束了。 需时太久，为cj7终于出现活着，并脚踢在屏幕上，和周令太少，使用的，可爱的东西，在不同的场景。 有可能是三个开玩笑说，让你笑出来，但大多只需将以此嘲笑这里有丝毫动摇。 这有点搞笑，看看周引述他自己的旧电影，每一次在一时，但，是不是也有点太早是什么？ 在2010年，功夫二是能得到释放-届时，我们大多数人已经忘记了c j7… 结论：时间太短了，太幼稚好玩。 **走出*****.

When Ben commented to my last post about the pictures from the movie John Rabe, I just headed over to YouTube to see if anything had been released there – officially or not. Sadly, I found no trailer – but a little report! DW, Deutsche Welle, was on the set reporting and seemed to have been allowed to capture some stuff with their cameras. Now the bad side: The video is almost half an hour long and over 60 megabyte big. But I watched through it and the John Rabe part is right at the beginning! So just watch it until the report of John Rabe is finished, the rest has nothing to with it anymore. Here we go: […]
Most of my friends know what I’ve been doing during the last three months: working with the VFX team on the german movie John Rabe.

So here you go, a little something to feed your appetite in regards to this movie. 8 pictures! Dr. Georg Rosen (Daniel Brühl), employee of the german embassy, tries to handle the threat in regard of the chinese civilians in diplomatic ways.
