I kind of like Alyssa, too. At least I watch 2 of her productions: Yi Tian Tu Long Ji (aka. The Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sabre) and The 100th Bride. The 100th Bride has an interesting plot, a bit off the wall near the end, a bit sad.
Anyway, so did HZGG II, more off the wall - there were a liitle bit of love, a little bit of nutziness (my brother just said: Vicki was totally nuts in this one), a little bit of comedy and a bit of tear.
My personal favorite is still HZGG I. Cousin Ji Xiang has a conflicting story, but I still love to watch AV, just minus most of the cast.
I also like So Close, A Time to Love and the newer movies. Vicki is definitely getting better - with vintage acting.
