[NEWS] 141009 Yeon Jung Hoon To Join Jackie Chan's New Movie 'Skiptrace'

Yeon Jung hoon has been set to star in Jackie Chan’s new movie entitled ‘Skiptrace’. The movie is based on a story by Jackie Chan and will be directed by director Renny Harlin, who is known for movies like ‘Die Hard 2′, ‘Cliffhanger’ and ‘The Long Kiss Goodnight’. Jackie Chan himself will be starring in this movie alongside Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing and American actor Johnny Knoxville.

‘Skiptrace’ tells a story about a Hong Kong detective (Jackie Chan) who strikes up an unusual partnership with an American gambler (Johnny Knoxville) to take down a crime syndicate that he has been tracking for years. Fan Bing Bing will play for the role as  Jackie Chan’s niece while Yeon Jung Hoon will take the role named Willy; the right-arm man of the crime boss.

Yeon Jung Hoon has been preparing himself by analyzing the English script immaculately as a way to adapt into the role he’ll be playing in the movie. According to the representative of Yeon Jung Hoon’s China agent; CNFT, Yeon Jung Hoon received  a love call from director Renny Harlin after the director impressed with him just by a video audition that he send only, beating many other Asian competitor actors who also have been eyeing for a role in that movie.

‘Skiptrace’ is set to be shoot in Beijing, Guangxi, Hong Kong and Macau among many other locations until mid December. Yeon Jung Hoon himself has already left Korea for his first shooting for the movie in Beijing on October 9th this morning.

** I consider this as a good news after the bad news that we heard a few weeks ago about his wife’s miscarriage. To be honest, I was torn whether to put unfortunate things such as that as a news here on my blog. I feel so sorry for him and his wife that I had no heart to update anything. I wish to hear more news regarding ‘Sweet Speeding’ and ‘Road King’. But I’m totally okay with his participation in this Hong Kong-Hollywood movie. Though we might have to wait until 2016 for its release! But still.. a happy news indeed!

‘Rush Hour’ TV series in the works at CBS with pilot production commitment

jackiechan compiled - Thu, 10/09/2014 - 19:27


Deadline: 

CBS is hitting Rush Hour traffic, landing the high-profile series adaptation of the blockbuster movie franchise with a pilot production commitment. The hourlong action comedy, written/executive produced by Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick and executive produced by the movies’ director Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian, was taken out to the broadcast networks this week by Warner Bros. TV.

CBS pursued it aggressively just as it recently did with another big WBTV package,Supergirl, which received a series commitment.

The show will stay close to the movies’ premise, which paired a by-the-book Hong Kong cop with a cocky black LAPD officer who want nothing to do with each other. I am fairly certain the movies’ original stars, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, will not have anything to do with the show. Written by Cougar Town co-creator Lawrence and the series’ executive producer/showrunner McCormick, Rush Hour is staying close to the premise of the original movie, with a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police officer (played in the features by Jackie Chan) assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky black LAPD officer *originally played by Chris Tucker) who has no interest in a partner. WBTV and Lawrence’s studio-based Dooxer are producing, with Lawrence, McCormick, Sarkissian and Ratner exec producing alongside Doozer’s Jeff Ingold.

Hrithik’s back with the “Not so impressive” Bang Bang

jackiechan compiled - Thu, 10/09/2014 - 18:46

Movie lovers especially of the dance and action genre would like that Hrithik Roshan would do far more movies than he does. Sometimes the movie’s he selects doesn’t do justice to his acting skills. He picks a rare movie here and there and appears on the silver screen after a damn big gap even as people start forgetting that there is someone as good as him.

Bang Bang for all the hype it had created as the comeback movie for Hrithik – before its release was supposed to kick off the sensation and anticipations of the movie goers with a BANG. It did good business before my article gets published…crossing Rupees 100 crore grossing and crossing trend to be declared a big hit…and in quick time too. It would still be one of the big hits in terms of making big money at the box office…rest of the things doesn’t matter.

High voltage revenge drama of Manmohan Desai movies of the olden Bollywood goldies + Quick action scenes from Jackie Chan movies + Romantic Action in exotic landscapes amidst mind blowing visuals of James bond movies + Dance items tailor made for Indian Michael Jackson – Jr Roshan makes up the not so delicious salad for Bang Bang.

Bang Bang is an old wine in a new bottle with a Hrithik-Karina touch. The movie is well supported by beautiful heroine who doesn’t know where exactly she fits into the script Miss Katrina Kaif as this is nothing new to her, a tried and tested Baddie – Danny Denzongpa who appears every now and then on the silver screen in a rotation basis after all the baddies have been used up to saturation a cop who is loyal to the goons – Pawan Malhotra this time, a lonely home with a Dad and Mom of 2 mysterious sons who are dedicated to the tricolour waiting for them to return (learning that one is dead and one might just followed his brother), a Kohinoor diamond, bikes, guns, chases and of course fast rhythmic tracks by Vishal-Shekhar the sum of which makes you tell “BANG BANG” after coming from the theatres.

It is not that the movie is so bad, it is that the movie is not as good as you would expect from a Hrithik movie. Siddharth Anand, the director has tried his best in making an Indian version of Knight and Day but I would definitely not compare both because Bang Bang needed to have an Indian touch to be appealing for Indian masses and it does have.

Plot:

Army officer Viren Nanda (Jimmy Shergill) gets killed by terrorist Omar Zafar (Danny Denzongpa) and his cabinet of goons. To hold up a new extradition treaty between India and England, Omar announces an award of 5 million dollars for an Indian thief who would abduct the precious Koh-i-Noor diamond from the Tower of London. An Indian Robinhood Rajveer (Hrithik Roshan) accomplishes the rob-job much to the surprise of Omar’s men. His goons track Rajveer down to Shimla for a deal. Rajveer plays cat and mouse with the Omar’s men, jumps over the roof tops damaging half of Shimla and meets a confused receptionist Harleen (Katrina Kaif) in a restaurant waiting for a date with an unseen person who was registered to meet her through a web site. She has mistaken identity with him and learns dancing skills from Indian MJ. The Indian police too are behind him now and Harleen gets entangled in his heroic deeds missing death by flickers while running all around with Rajveer. She anyhow gets a couple of dances, a kiss, hugs here and there and visits to foreign countries (has always been her dream), the art of running and firing guns from Rajveer…free of cost. We will get to hear her annoying hindi in return.

After a lot of confusions at Prague (where the later part of story takes place) and a couple of mind blowing stunts on land and in water, Harleen falls prey for Omar Zafar. She is kidnapped within the sight of Rajveer and interrogated about the Koh-i-Noor. Rajveer returns with a  bang and by now you would know that you need to vacate your places for the others waiting outside for their turn of Bang Bang…yeah the climax is on. Rajveer confesses that he is Jai Nanda, the brother of Viren Nanda who was killed by Omar. Omar now recollects all the climaxes of a Manmohan Desai movie before Rajveer kills everyone from the boss to the chailas amidst silly jokes from Harleen. All is well that ends well…Rajveer goes back to his snow house at Shimla to give a sigh of relief to his parents…of course with Harleen who had done all the deeds of a 007 girl to him.

Credentials:

You can watch the movie for its action scenes which are well picturised especially the water chase. You would not miss Jackie Chan, Arnold or James Bond while seeing Hrithik. He also gives you a bonus with a MJ feat. Music and dance are loud with exceptions but come as a relief. Picturisation and exotic locations at places are catchy.

Negativities:

  • Dialogues which are not catchy
  • Story line which is very sluggish, rather none
  • Predictable story with the soul of the movie missing with lack of connectivity between characters and story. Every character and part of story looks like picturised by different people at different places at different times and assembled into a movie.
  • Hrithik Roshan not in his full flow
  • Katrina Kaif’s language

Recommendations:

Kids would love the movie, the old folks might wait for the movie to finish if they have paid for it or would prefer an evening walk with their toothless buddies instead of seeing a movie online or in television and the middle aged folks might just tolerate in bits while trying to enjoy some parts because you need to justify that you have not wasted your time and money on it.

You can go to this movie:

  • If you are planning entertainment for kids
  • If you are a hard core Hrithik fan
  • If you do not have anything better to do at weekends
  • If you are not sure where to spend money this week
  • If you are a fan of mindless entertainment
  • If you are a fan of action and dance
  • If you do not mind a movie which doesn’t have a story which is catchy
  • If you are a movie freak
  • If you have not seen Knight and Day

Still in spite of all these things I recommend a one time watch for bollywood movie lovers…because with that portfolio you would not complain…and neither those selling tickets, coke and popcorn……..

How to Live A: Long, Healthy, Happy and Peaceful Life.

jackiechan compiled - Wed, 10/08/2014 - 21:17

The way to live a long, healthy, happy and peaceful life is through kung Fu/Martial Arts. And here is how you do that:

In a short paragraph the Blog you’re about to read is about Philosophy, health, kindness, equality; becoming a free and liberated human being, becoming  a united race on this big rock that we all share, that we all call home, that also happens to be our only home together as one big family. It’s about finding yourself, and how become totally and truly respectful, happy, loving and peaceful. All of these are to be found through the expression of the human body, that is kung Fu/Martial arts which shall also guide you to self-discovery in short: Kung Fu/Martial arts is life. (without getting too eastern or philosophical, i’m sorry if I’ve already lost you, please do bare with me, it is worth it indeed!.) To put it simply and directly this is a guide to not only health, happiness, and peace but also philosophy, science, new ways of thinking and doing, passiveness and activeness, righteousness, Yin and Yang: Balance of mind and body, to be both humanistic and animalistic, is that not human life it’s self. The unison and harmony of everything.

“Martial arts is the harmonized combination of everything.”

It is my belief that a total of three things make up the art of living; Kung Fu, Philosophy, and kindness. And all of these you shall see within this Blog which i’m writing to you now, but more importantly, more incredibly, i’m not giving you anything new, i’m not teaching you anything you don’t already know, these three things needed for “The Art of Living” (A term i just coined) You’ll find them within yourself, you already have it, it’s already there, i’m simply helping you find it, helping you bring it to the surface and helping you use it. This in which i’m writing to you now is merely stepping stones in which you’ll find yourself, i’m not going to tell you anything that you’re not already capable of doing or knowing, this capability lies within us all already but sadly sometimes we’re easily misled, misguided, and simply become lost, i hope this can help you find your way, and help you to stay on the right path.

Before i tell you why you should practice Kung Fu/Martial Arts, why you should be healthy and work on your body, take pride in your body and health why everybody in the world should do this. I will start by putting it into prospective for you to understand and care about: A Kung Fu man will die healthy at the age of 90, meanwhile an avenge ill-eating, lazy, man will die weak at the age of 70-80 and if you’re very unhealthy in your life style and food in-take maybe you’ll only live to 70 or less if any peril issue’s come up along the way due to ill-eating and unhealthy living which is rather common might i add, you could be looking at a life span of 70 or maybe 60 years when the human life span is 80 and changeable to 90 through martial arts and that’s the crazy truth, what we think is healthy, what we think is the correct age to die is in fact not correct at all, the fact of the human life span being 80 and in most places in the world much lower is simply based on lack of healthiness, its no wonder Japan has the highest death of death at 80 since they have the most amount of healthy people, they have the healthiest living, the problem is we the western world are simply not nearly as healthy as we should be due to our Technological age and society that keeps us sat inside and lazy watching TV and eating take-aways, sadly we’ve lost our way, we had Bruce Lee, we had Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the 70’s and 80’s we loved Kung Fu and fitness but not anymore, and that’s wrong, it shouldn’t be acceptable we shouldn’t have stopped looking after ourselves or loving the healthy life, in fact due to our Technology, our science, our machines, our medicine. We should be fitter than ever before, we should be working out every day, there is a gym in every town, we have all the foods and machines and medicine we need, but no, we’re still not being as active as we should be, not eating what we should be, the life span of a martial artist is upwards of 80 and strong, but due to our lack of activity and our horrible eating habits we’re just as ill as we ever have been, we have everything we need to survive and prosper, yet we don’t do anything about it, its no wonder Japan and China have the oldest healthiest humans on earth, they’re simply filled with good food, with martial arts, with wisdom, we the western world need to take a leaf or two out of their book of life, we need to become healthier, happier, wiser, kinder, and peaceful minded and we can do this through the art of expressing the human body, in combative form that is Kung Fu/martial arts, through the understanding and respecting of our bodies, what it needs, what we need to eat what we really need to do, rather than what we make our selves need and want, what we make our selves eat and do, we need to take some culture and philosophy and knowledge from the east and make ourselves and everybody else united as one race, as one family, and the only way we can reach such goals together, without others we’re but one lonely man, but with others  we’re powerful, strong, happy, kind, and liberated human beings, we’re liberated from all that traps us, all that forces us, all that binds and blinds us. You are to be set-free from this system that keeps you unhappy at your job, in your fancy house, or maybe not even that, maybe the opposite, maybe the system and world around you keeps you unhappy at a poor job, in a poor house, but you can be liberated from all of this, you can be healthy, happy and peaceful, simply through Kung Fu. And i’m going to tell you the steps in which to take to get to such places, how to become the best you can be.

What does Kung Fu/Martials Arts mean?
To me Kung Fu/Martial Arts is the unison and balance of everything.  It’s health, body, mind, soul, and spirit all bound together to create the being that you call “You” It’s science, Philosophy, love, natural instinct, and natural body machines all in harmony together to create art. Thus Martial arts, some people say Kung Fu is like ballet, i say it’s far older than ballet Kung Fu dates back over 4,000 years, it’s the first ballet and it’s far more natural and beautiful than ballet. Simply it’s our way of decoding the nature of the human being for us to understand and compose into thought and action, it’s how we lead our lives and how we treat people. Kung Fu/Martial Arts is our natural instinct combined in harmony with our  consciousness and free will.

Now we’ve got some mindsets, concepts, and philosophies out of the way, i’ll do my best to put “The Art of Living”  Into five stages for you to easily understand and apply to your daily life and therefore your whole life:

Stage One. Health- Deit
Stage Two. Body- Stretching
Stage Three. Mind- Studying
Stage Four. Soul- Philosophy
Stage Five. Spirit- Kung Fu/Martial Arts

STAGE ONE:
Stage One. Diet; Eating the correct food is at the top of the list for health and growth, in the western world we have horrible food in-take on a daily basic, we have horrible food shops on every single street, we’re forced into fast foods, processed foods every day we become unhealthy, obsess, addicted and you may think we need to go far away to some magical land to find a real shop but the funny thing is, you actually don’t need to go very far at all to eat correctly and healthfully, in fact you don’t even need a different shop, any super market will do, instead of getting crisps, chocolate, fizzy drinks, processed meats, you should rather get fruit, rice, potatoes, fish, fresh meat, and water. And it’s so simple but  hard for many people to do, you must start with this, so just slowly get rid of the bad food habbits and change them with better food which you also love, you can do it. When i started eating healthy i said to myself, I’ve made up my mind, i want to do better, be better, i want to become a Martial Artist, and therefore i did just that, that very same day, i changed my diet, i no longer ate bad foods, i no longer drank fizzy drinks, i no longer ate crisps and chocolate and processed meats or take-aways, i set a new diet and i stuck to it, and it did not even bother me, i did not miss the bad foods at all in fact i felt even better, healthy foods are far better for your brain, far better for you both mentally and physically and its much faster to cook and cheaper to buy that’s the funny thing, i just hope you put an end to these bad foods that we so willing to eat even though it is but nothing, it is but fat and sugar, it is not real food at all, i hope you change your shopping lists and routines right now and you shall see just how better you feel mentally and physically.  Look after your body, your insides, you can’t see them but they’re there, and they do hurt and fail upon poor in-takes, look after yourself is the first step to any line of work, any Martial Art, and there are some really nice foods out there too, i love some good old apples, Chinese food, healthy cereal, find what you like and eat it, put down the bad foods and pick up the good ones.

STAGE TWO:
Stage Two. Stretch; Stretching is so important to any fitness and/or Martial Art, Kung Fu/Martial Arts asks speed, it asks for reflex just like and to gain speed and reflex you must work the tendons, you must stretch daily, not only will this make you much healthier and safer from any bodily issues you shall find a simple 30-60 minutes a day is enough, and you’ll find it’s rather therapeutic, stress releasing, spirit lifting, confidence building, daily stretching will make you feel much better mentally and physically. It will be your down-time, your time away from your busy lives, your break from life, if you can you should stretch in the morning and in the evening, you will also learn what it takes to stick to something every day, you will learn will power, dedication, mindsets, and what it is to give to gain, after all, you are giving your time and body to gain flexibility and although it’s a simple thing, it is beautiful, and it is most important, and this simple practice, will make you appreciate what it is to give and to gain, you will be very proud of yourself, and much healthier and safer and happier, and will be flexible which is always cool to show-case and a Martial Artist without flexibility is not a Martial Artists. While stretching it shouldn’t hurt, you should just feel it, go to the point of pain and bring it back a bit this way you stretch the tendons rather than hurting them, you should never be in pain, this is a daily practice you’re slowly working your body bit by bit, soon enough you shall see results and be proud and a better person because of it and so stretch as much as you can, stretch all day long, stretch in the bath, stretch in the car, stretch at work, and stretch whilst drinking tea, always stretch whilst drinking tea. And don’t forget to drink lots of tea!

STAGE THREE:
Stage Three. Study; To study is to gain knowledge and as we all know knowledge is everything, so you must learn as much as you can, in the words of Bruce Lee: “Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” Now that is as true for Martial Arts as it is for learning it’s self, in any line of work, you must absorb everything you can, and anything that’s incorrect, anything that is bad, harmful or hateful, anything that goes against nature is simply wrong and in that case you must reject it, and anything else well, that  is useful and so you should learn everything you can, knowledge is very important in Kung Fu/Martial Arts and in life it’s self. Without knowledge we’re but animals without thought, we would not be utilizing our human abilities if we didn’t learn as much as we can, study your art, study what your interested in without care of what others think or do, you shouldn’t care what they’re doing, you should care about what you’re doing and what you want to do, what you want to learn, in the words of Alan Watts: “Somebody is interested in everything, and anything you can be interested in you’ll find others will.” And so learn away, learn it all, the more you know the better, famously Bruce Lee loved to read, he knew it all, he had over 2,000 books on Philosophy, Martial Arts, self-help, science, fighting, will power, and much more, everything that mattered to him, and to his daily life, everything important in life, everything that matters to you as a human being and to your daily life is found within books and studies and so study it all my friends, and reject the useless, and always add yourself to it, make it your own, become your study.

STAGE FOUR:
Stage Four. Philosophy; Philosophy is key to Martial Arts and frankly your every day life, it is the frame work for life within your mind, it is the morals, the mindsets, the rights and wrongs, the friendships, the will power, the knowledge, the respect, the culture and the history of yourself and the world, Philosophy helps you to understand yourself and the world around you, it is the understanding of the world through thought, it is the natural science. Philosophy is with you everyday, everyday when you think of something in a different way, everyday when you see something from a new point of view, everyday when you find a new mindset, in the simplest of terms, Philosophy is the sign posts that guide us down the right path, and it’s so important to be on the right path in life, so very important,  so study as much Philosophy as you can, who knows you may even find a new you somewhere in there, we’re not just two sided, we have many sides and you can seek, accept and expand on all of these sides through Philosophy, to me philosophy is the mindsets, point of views, morals and beliefs of your daily life, it is the helping hand to your daily life, how you feel, how you think, how you act, how to treat yourself and others, and the world around you that is Philosophy. Philosophy is not the argument and conversational debate to the unanswered and unanswerable questions, that is a huge misconception of Philosophy in my opinion, the beautiful thing is we’re all Philosophers in our own little way.

STAGE FIVE:
Stage Five. Kung Fu/Martial Art; I put Kung Fu/Martial Art last in the set of stages so i could focus on all the others things you need such as looking after your health through diet, looking after your body through stretching, looking after your mind through studying, looking after your soul through Philosophy, you now come to looking after your spirit through practicing your Kung Fu/Martial Art, let it be Tai-Chi, Japanese Martial Arts, Chinese Martial Arts, Animal Kung Fu, Aikido, Kyudo, Kendo, Jeet Kune Do, Judo, Jujutsu, Hapkido, Taekwondo, Fenching. Or maybe your Kung Fu is not Martial Arts at all, maybe it’s Yoga, Painting, Running, Snowboarding, or Cooking, it doesn’t matter what it is, the concepts and mindsets behind Kung Fu/Martial Arts, are the care-takers of your body and mind if you will, they increase your health, life and knowledge and they’re applicable to every line of work and every man, woman and, child to make you healthier and happier in everything you do, you should be just as happy doing one thing as doing another, this is the aim of having a totally calm, peaceful  happy mind. One thing can not be greater than another since they’re all apart of your life and daily life, you can not enjoy being better than another person more than doing a simple daily job, you can not live with ego or hate, this is the way of being completely kind and peaceful, partly the way the Tao if you will, you must be at one with it, you must love it, you must take pride in everything you do, to be completely liberated from the world and its boxes that are constantly forming around you. And so,  this stage, the stage of the practice it’s self is the most important of all, although all of the stages are just as important as the each other, you need all of them in total harmony both Yin and Yang, it’s not called Yin or Yang it’s called Yin and Yang, the harmonization of everything.

You see you go from outside to inside, you go from the outer layers of your body to the very deepest, so deep you cant explain, so deep you can’t see it, so deep it’s your whole body, your whole being, it’s everything, it’s life it’s self. From your health, to your body, to your mind, to your soul and to your spirit. That is your whole being, and your spirit is your Kung Fu. “Kung Fu is in everything.” – Jackie Chan

Its called the spirit of fighting, not the spirit of sport, not the spirit of Boxing or Yoga, but the spirit of fighting, the spirit of Kung Fu. All of the five stages above in unison and harmony is to find out the meaning of life in the realist form you can, i believe the only way you can, because through Kung Fu it leads you to everything else good in the world, it branches you out to everything else, it opens your eyes to the world around you like you’ve never seen it before.

Where to start?
Start by setting a goal, set a goal to eat a x amount of food, or whatever it may be, but you must always set a goal, a goal is a good way to start focus on what you want to gain, it’s a good motivator, although keep in mind in the words of Bruce Lee: “A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.” Set goals on food, waking up at said time, going for a run, a daily, weekly routine. Set goals in your stretching  such as to be able to fully extend your leg on a short table, and then a chair, and then a desk, move up higher and higher on anything you can, in house or out, at home or at the gym, so you can see your process, see your results, it keeps you going, you say: “Okay i want to be able to lift my leg to my head fully extended.” But you must first start at Level One, and work your way up, the thing that matters is to stay motivated all the way, everyday. So always set yourself goals, always have daily and weekly routines. And then put the five stages into action, mold and shape yourself around it, into it, become it, don’t let it be just something you make yourself do, make it something you want to do!

Kung Fu Morning routine.
1,000 punches
1,000 kicks
30 minutes/One hour stretching

Kung Fu Afternoon/Eveing routine.
1,000 punches
1,000 kicks
30 minutes/One hour stretching
One/Two hours practice of the art

Total hours per day: 2-4. – Start by a simple 30 minutes of stretching every day, and 30 minutes of Kung Fu that’s all you need! One Hour a day, every day, 7 hours a week is far greater than just 7 hours in one day, once a week. It’s about amount of days you put in, not the amount of hours at any one time, it’s a step-by-step progression: “It’s a process of continuing growth.”- Bruce Lee.

Now, my chosen Kung Fu/Martial Art is Wing Chun Kung Fu from southern China from 300 years ago. To me it’s one of the most effective and graceful styles/arts there is.

The basic Wing Chun concepts.
Conservation of energy. (Never over committing, never wasting movements, only use power/force when it is needed)
Minimum movement. (deflection rather than total evasion)
Working on short range attacks (explosive energy), often described as ‘being able to fight in a telephone box.
Straight line punches. (this being the shortest route between you and your opponent)
Relaxation. (Enabling you to react faster with out the muscle mass which can slow you down)

No pointless movements are made and no movement is ever wasted in Wing Chun, just like energy, energy is never wasted energy never leaves, never dies, it only ever changes it only ever moves just like you should always be changing, always be moving.
“Running water never grows staleso you gotta just keep on flowing.” – Bruce Lee

Wing Chun is made up of the Crane and Snake animal Kung Fu.
The concepts of the Crane and Snake:

CRANE
1. Avoid any damage or chance of damage
2. Focus the attacker on what you want them to see and expect
3. Do not anticipate, be ready for everything
4. Use the strength and movement of the attacker for your own purpose
5. Seek not to win but to help your opponent to defeat themselves.

SNAKE
Order –is the key to all success; it is the building block of co-existence, cooperation, civilization and Enlightenment. Order is the absence of Surprise, the absence of chaos and the absence of mischief. Without order there would be chaos and anarchy and thus no civilization and no style.

Knowledge –is the key to all success; knowing what is possible and what not; knowing what works best and how, knowing the weakness of your attacker and the strength of your skills; knowing how to maximize effect for minimum effort; simply knowing how to succeed. Without knowledge no action can be truly successful.

Skill–is the key to translating knowledge into successful action; being able to achieve that absolutely right movement, at the right time to the right spot in the right way. Without Skill there is only Theory and Words.

Accuracy & Timing –is based on Order, leading to knowledge and together with skill, is the ability to translate this into appropriate action, at the right time, in the right place in the most effective way.

Patience –is the ability to wait for the time to be…. just right!

“There are really only two requirements for Wing Chun training one is that you do it. The other is that you continue to do it.” – Yip Man

Practice your Kung Fu daily my brothers and sisters, expand, grow, become learned filled with knowledge and know-how, become the best you can be, you’re already great, you just need to find that level of greatness, respect and grace within yourself, from your Kung Fu. And remember to be completely and honestly yourself, always.

“To me, the extraordinary aspect of martial arts lies in its simplicity. The easy way is also the right way, and martial arts is nothing at all special; the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is.” – Bruce Lee

‘Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.’ – Bruce lee

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” – Bruce lee

“Use your Martial Art for good.” – Yip Man

Start your Kung Fu today, and Tomorrow you’ll be a wiser, stronger, healthier, person than you was Yesterday. (Kung Fu can go hand in hand, with your other hobby/hobbies, these the philosophies and mindsets of it for everything else in your life. Just add Kung Fu into your daily life, and you’ll be all the better for it!)

My legacy is the global practice of Kung Fu.

Rush Hour: From Film Franchise to... TV Series?

jackiechan compiled - Wed, 10/08/2014 - 19:30

It seems that two sequels weren’t enough — now, Rush Hour may just become a television series. Or at the very least, it’ll be getting a pilot.

According to Deadline, CBS have agreed to a pilot production commitment for the adaptation to be written/executive produced by Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick and executive produced by the movies’ director Brett Ratner.

It will stay close to the plot of the original film, which follows a Hong Kong police officer (played by Jackie Chan in the films) who is assigned to a case — and a partner (Chris Tucker) — in Los Angeles.

Now, while I enjoyed the Rush Hour films, I’m having a difficult time trying to imagine it working as a television show. And aside from a possible cameo, I don’t have my hopes up for Jackie and Chris reprising their roles. And Rush Hour without Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker just isn’t Rush Hour to me. But at least there’s potential for another Asian actor in a leading role on primetime television — and I’ll take that as a win.

What are your thoughts on this Rush Hour pilot? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or tweet us @theasianlist!

A Love Letter to Shanghai Noon

jackiechan compiled - Mon, 10/06/2014 - 20:16

I often joke that Shanghai Noon is the greatest movie ever made, and while I usually say this with a certain amount of irony, I really do love the balls off Shanghai Noon. I have seen it so many times that by now I should really be sick to death of it, but it remains a dear favourite of mine. I really shouldn’t love it, but I just can’t get enough.

My love for it starts with the title, a gloriously cringe-worthy pun on the phrasehigh noon”. The film begins in the Forbidden City in China, in 1887, where Jackie Chan’s clumsy guard Chon Wang witnesses Princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu) fleeing the city to seek a better life in America. It’s a trap, of course; a Chinese deserter (whom we know is evil because he is bald and has a goatee) has kidnapped hundreds of immigrants and put them to work building railroads in Nevada. He also utters a nonsensical line when his colleague demands more pay: “One thing you should learn about the Chinese…” – he stabs the guy in the throat – “…we do not renegotiate”. Ha! I love this movie.

Jackie Chan goes to America to get the princess back, and the whole movie changes. The colour scheme goes from washed-out blue to the bright orange of the Nevade desert. The music changes from an imposing, Asian-influenced score to a rousing, upbeat melody that was totally ripped off from Blazing Saddles, but I don’t even care. One of the best things about this movie is that its theme of “East meets West” embodies more than the two main characters. This is a Western (a classically American genre) and a martial arts film (a classic genre in Asian cinema). This is the cinematic equivalent of a music mashup. Jackie Chan uses a sheriff’s badge as a throwing star. It’s just that kind of movie.

Owen Wilson does the Woody Allen thing of basically playing himself. He doesn’t even try to be a convincing cowboy, but that’s just fine. You don’t hire Owen Wilson to play a cowboy, you hire him to play Owen Wilson, because that’s what he’s good at. And this is his Owen Wilsonest performance. His character – Roy O’Bannon – is a terrible cowboy who thinks he’s a great cowboy. His survival hinges entirely on his luck and invulnerability. He cannot die. He actually figures it out at the end of the film, and becomes convinced that God protects him from harm. I’m not sure that any other actor could have pulled this off in a believable way, but Owen Wilson’s bewildered sincerity sells the moment.

The film is not concerned with selling the time period accurately. The barfight is accompanied by ZZ Top’s “La Grange”. Owen Wilson tells Jackie Chan that he should change his name from Chon Wang to John Wayne. It is implied that he is THE John Wayne, especially in the second one, where he announces that he will become a movie star. John Wayne was not born at the time the movie is set. Get it together, movie!

The fight scenes are as fun and slapsticky as you can expect from Jackie Chan. When Jackie throws tomahawks at attacking “injuns”, they catch them effortlessly and Jackie makes that funny face he always makes. He uses mounted moose antlers as a weapon. Owen Wilson gets thrown around like a rag doll. It’s awesome.

The two stars have excellent chemistry, as is evident from the drinking game scene. I don’t think it can be described in words, so here is it.

I could talk about this movie all day. Even the bad bits make me happy. I love it to bits. Hopefully this clumsy love letter will convince someone at Disney to close out the trilogy and answer all my burning questions about the Shanghai universe.

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was presented with the Global Diversity Award 2014 for his outstanding achievements in the field of cinema and his involvement in philanthropic endeavours.

Receiving the coveted award from Speaker of Britain’s House of Commons, the Rt Hon John Bercow at a special ceremony held in the House of Commons last night, the 48-year-old actor described it as a “big honour.”

“This is a special day for me and I am very humbled to receive the award instituted by Rainbow Foundation,” Shah Rukh said.

Noting that he came from a humble background, the actor said he has been working for the last 33 years. “My first visit to England was when I was 27 in connection with the first film Baazigar. I have got lot more than I deserved.”

He said the award would inspire him to work a lot more for the community, particularly the neglected community. “I will try to do in a small away, whatever I can,” he said. Rt Hon Keith Vaz, Founder of the Rainbow Foundation, said, “Shah Rukh Khan is regarded as one of the most famous actors on planet earth.”

“He has already featured in several films and won 14 Filmfare awards out of 30 he was nominated including eight best actor awards. He is also active in the fields of charity, particularly helping women who have suffered acid attacks,” Bercow said.

Rush Hour TV Series Potentially On The Way

jackiechan compiled - Mon, 10/06/2014 - 05:10

TV News - Rush Hour Could Become A TV SeriesIt looks like we ain’t going to be getting a Rush Hour 4, as Deadline reports that the CBS network are moving forward with a pilot of a series adaptation of the move franchise. Brett Ratner, who directed the trilogy, is on board as executive producer, working along with Bill Lawrence (Spin City, Scrubs, Cougar Town) as executive producer/writer, Blake McCormick and Arthur Sarkissian. Looks like CBS is making some moves to increase their viewership for the following year, after nabbing the DC property of Supergirl, committing that to a series slot. The aim is to make Rush Hour for a series adaptation an hourlong action comedy, sticking with the premise of the films, a by-the-book Hong Kong police officer assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky black LAPD officer, who has no interest in a partner. WBTV and Lawrence’s studio-based Dooxer are producing, with Lawrence, McCormick, Sarkissian and Ratner exec producing alongside Doozer’s Jeff Ingold.

 

The film trilogy has grossed around $845 million worldwide, with the third film took a long time to become a reality (6 years apart from Rush Hour 2), there had been talks of a fourth film, with Chan inciting that he was interested in doing a fourth, but now that looks set to be benched as this property could become a series adaptation. Granted, this is only a pilot commitment, this attempt on Rush Hour could follow the same route as the Beverley Hills Cop pilot that could’ve been (which CBS had back in 2013), so a series commitment is not a 100% certainty. It’ll be interesting see who will be cast in the leads.

Yet another deserved international recognition and esteemed feather in the cap of this global superstar.

Top Ten: Martial arts movies.

jackiechan compiled - Sat, 10/04/2014 - 23:08

My Top Ten martial arts movies. (Chinese/Japanese/Asian martial arts only.)

No.10 – The One. Jet Li, Jason Statham – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0267804/
No.9 – Ninja Assassin. Rain, Rick Yune – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1186367/
No.8 – Ninja. Scott Adkins, Ihara Tsuyoshi – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1182921/
No.7 – Ong-Bak. Tony Jaa – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAYUv9wjV48
No.6 – Wing Chun. Michelle Yeoh, Donnie Yen – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUG0sVzs57I
No.5 – Hero. Jet Li, Tony Leung, Donnie Yen, Zhang Ziyi. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0299977/
No.4 – The Forbidden Kingdom. Jackie Chan, Jet Li. – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0865556/
No.3 – Enter the Dragon. Bruce Lee, John Saxon, Jim Kelly, Robert Wall. – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070034/
No.2  – Ip Man. Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung, Yu-Hang To, Ip Chun. –   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1220719/
No.1 – Fearless. Jet Li, Shidô Nakamura. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42NWMluhlfk

Honourable Mentions: Kung Fu Wing Chun, Once Upon a Time in China, Unleashed, Kiss of the Dragon, Man of Tai Chi, War, Fist of Legend, The Defender, Tai Chi Master, The Legend, The Master, The Way of the Dragon, The Big Boss, The Protector, Drunken Master, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Police Story, House of Flying Daggers, The Kick, Best of the Best, Above the Law, Hard to Kill, Under Siege,The Blade. (I’m sure i’ve missed a few.)

My No.1 “Fearless” Is also my Favorite film of all time, to me it’s not only the greatest martial arts movie ever made, but one of the greatest movies ever made as well. It’s based upon the life of Huo Yuanjia he was a Chinese martial artist and a co-founder of the Chin Woo Athletic Association. He’s considered a hero in China for defeating foreign fighters in highly publicised matches at a time when Chinese sovereignty was being eroded by colonisation, foreign concessions and spheres of influence. He died just aged 42, from arsenic poisoning (He’s shown to be poisoned by the enemy in the movie, however arsenic poisoning is natural.  So, it’s unclear to me if he died naturally or was indeed murdered) – I hope everybody has seen the movie by now, but if anyone has not, then please do!

- Thank You.

Cloudinary URL doesn't create Cloud url, via SASS

jackiechan compiled - Sat, 10/04/2014 - 07:20

So in my:

application.css.scss file I have the following line:

background-image: cloudinary-url('billie-piper-reading-book', $width: '100%');

In development environment it loads with this asset pipeline:

http://localhost:3000/assets/billie-piper-reading-book

Which results in:

GET http://localhost:3000/assets/billie-piper-reading-book 404 (Not Found)

I would assume, that cloudinary-url should genereate something like http://ift.tt/1rHhZvf

Any reason?
