MAGIC SHOOTER HISASHI MITSUI!
and she is 170m quite tall for a chinese actress.
that pciture was photoshoped by her fans, who is crazy with roch series starring by Yifei Liu and Huang Xiaoming, they think they are the best screen couple and wish they continue that relationship off screen.
She was good in ROCH but then again she didn't have to show much emotion in the begging I haven't seen any other movies with her in them. I heard that she was in DGSD which I am thinking about asking [begging] my parents to buy it but I don't know how good it is. Is it worth buying.
This is off the subject, but how come I am the only kid I ever see reading Wuxia? Is it just because I live in America?
As for this, it could be because you're in America. Or it could be because no one really knows Chinese. Most of the ABCs these days couldn't care any less about Chinese.This is off the subject, but how come I am the only kid I ever see reading Wuxia? Is it just because I live in America?
Thanks for the answer but I only speak English. My real first name is American and my real last name is Danish. I get the translated books. My mom thinks that Wuxia is too violent but I don't think so. Not to brag but I think that another reason I don't see kids in my classes reading Wuxia is because most 6th graders aren't on a high enough reading level to understand some of the words. Also they are too caught up in their stupid books and I mean some of the books that kids read are so stupid!
The first Wuxia book that I ever read was ROCH. It's not my favorite but it got e started on Wuxia. I have read any Jin Yong and almost 2 Gu Long books.
Can anyone recommend any other good authors?
P.S. I am a Jin Yong fanatic!

Rob Minkoff, director of the charming ‘Lion King’ and ‘Stuart Little’ series, applies the same quaint sensibilities to what might have been stronger as an all-out martial-arts genre flick
By Bryant Manning
Beware when a new film insists on reminding you of its “first” onscreen pairing of star actors X and Y. Like Nigerian “investors” e-mailing strangers for their credit card number, it’s the kind of scam that can leave you in the cold.
It’s a clever way to divert your attention away from the other parts of the film that might fizzle and flop. Think of Danny DeVito and Arnie in the subpar comedy Twins, or the Bennifer tag team in the dud Gigli. This year’s edition couples fu fighters Jackie Chan (成龍) and Jet Li (李連杰) in Rob Minkoff’s The Forbidden Kingdom, a promising adventure movie whose potential is sweep-kicked to the curb.
Minkoff has the charming Lion King and Stuart Little series under his belt, but he applies those same quaint sensibilities to what might have been stronger as an all-out martial-arts genre flick. The hokey but whimsical story line (based loosely on a traditional Chinese legend) could’ve been a boon if it weren’t so mired in John Fusco’s unmemorable script.
Michael Angarano (24, Seabiscuit) is Jason, a wimpy South Bostonian who gets pushed around by the neighborhood gang. He’s an avid martial arts DVD collector and finds a hangout in a slummy Chinatown pawnshop. The teen discovers that the store’s aging proprietor, Old Hop (a heavily powdered Jackie Chan), has an ancient sword in the back room with powers untold. When the bullies decide one night to rob the shop, Jason defends himself with the magical instrument. Then at the brink of death, he finds himself transported back to ancient China.
His troubles have only begun. Instead of dopey hoods from South Boston, he’s confronted by the wicked Jade Warlord (Collin Chou, 鄒兆龍), who has turned the all-loving Monkey King (Jet Li, 李連杰) into solid stone. Jason’s mission is to set him free and restore order to civilization, but he first needs a lesson or two in kung fu vernacular.
Chan doubles as the wine-addled Lu Yan, who teaches young Jason those very skills he’s long admired on those bootlegged DVDs. Along the way, they meet the Silent Monk (Jet Li, again) who delivers excitement in his every frame. Unfortunately, the principal female lead (Liu Yifei, 劉亦菲) is subjected to every eye-rolling stereotype as the submissive, grief-stricken Golden Sparrow, who plays sorrowful melodies on her lute-like instrument. Of course she naturally falls for the clumsy American hero.
Kung fu just isn’t as fun to experience when it feels like a synthetic video game. Rather than letting the natural flow of the action take over, extended slow-motion sequences dice it all up. It’s one thing to remind us of the craft’s balletic qualities, but it’s another to impede its driving motion. Which is too bad, since action choreographer Yuen Wo-ping (袁和平) did wonders with The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (臥虎藏龍).
Kingdom falls even harder when it gets the urge to genre hop. In one rare comical scene, Chan tries to conjure up some raindrops in the desert, only to realize that Li is urinating on him. Then there are long, irritating stretches where characters want to wax contemplative and share phony, hoary truths. “Music is the bridge between Earth and heaven,” says the straight-faced Golden Sparrow to Jason. This patchwork mess of slapstick, computer-generated Buddhist fantasy, Eastern epic, etc, doesn’t ever quite allow the viewer to happily abandon to any of them.
