    Default Gong Li

    Hmm...looks like there's no Gong Li thread. So, what do you all think of her? I first saw her in Memoirs of a Geisha, and then I went on to see some of her earlier films. I think that she definitely got a lot less negative publicity on MOAG than Zhang Ziyi.

    Then I went to see Miami Vice in theatres...she's been pretty successful lately. I definitely think she looks very nice for her age. Her acting is pretty good, but overall she isn't the type of actress that WOWs me. However, still wanted to make a thread on her to get more opinions.

    I thought so. Both are mainland Chinese actresses and both played Japanese geisha. Both had love scenes with Japanese actors. But Zhang Ziyi remains everyone's favorite whipping board.

    Still, I love Gong Li to death! She's one of my favorite actresses.

    Well Zhang Ziyi wasn't as good as Gong Li in Memoirs of a Geisha...That might be why, and that she is more popular now. But then again, Gong Li is getting pretty popular in the US.

    Mod failed to put a link to the old Gong Li thread so now it's lost somewhere.

    She was great in 'Hannibal Rising' and Dr. Lector was pretty charming himself in a twisted way. Love the movie!

    I think that Gong Li has the perfect body that curves like an hourglass with perfect proportions. I would love to have a body like hers

    I like her older shows There is one show of her where she acted two different roles in a ancient series' show.There are 3 ladies who are siblings and there is someone called Xiao Yao Zi in the show if I'm not wrong.She acted out as both twins.They three had some kind of special powers and I thought the plot ws interesting.

    She's DEFINITELY better than Zhang Ziyi She had the dominant figure and cool look which is

    Well, actually it's quite unfair to compare Gong Li to Zhang Ziyi . Zhang Ziyi has a long way ahead of her. It's like comparing Empress Phoenix to the shit-I-did-my-own-brother Chan the palace maid. I am in no way a fan of Zhang Ziyi, in fact, I would at most avoid her movies (maybe due to the fact she carry this same facial expression in most of her roles? ), but still, to compare a junior to a senior is quite unfair. Perhaps if we give her another ten years, when she's been thru the ups and downs of the industry, then it would be a somewhat fair comparison.




    I've only seen a few of Gong Li's movies, but that's enough to say that i'm beginning to lean into her fanclub....

    I think Hollywood is starting to prefer Gong Li over Zhang Ziyi as well...not to mention that Gong Li has more than Zhang Ziyi to offer in a man's favourite department.

    However, I agree with ghostdarTeal'c (which I managed to type out) that you can't compare Gong Li to Zhang Ziyi, or really to most actresses in the industry now. She's just so much more experienced. I haven't seen many of Gong Li's early movies though, so I have no idea how she started out. Any big Gong Li fan want to comment on her early works?
