    Poll #14: Who should play "The Girl" in a HK version of My Sassy Girl? - Posted November 22nd, 2002

  • My Sister (13) 5%
  • Ruby Lin (12) 5%
  • Joey Yung (7) 3%
  • Rain Li (5) 2%
Commentary: To be honest, I feel that Cecilia Cheung would be the top - and most obvious - choice for the role of "The Girl." She really does have the requisite emotional range, though it'd be hard for anyone to top Jeon Ji-Hyun. Shu Qi and Charlene Choi wouldn't be bad, either. However, five years ago I would have immediately chosen Charlie Young for the role. And thanks to everyone who voted for my sister.

    Poll #13: Which young actress will have the longest career? - Posted November 22nd, 2002

  • Charlene Choi (Twin #1) (17) 8%

  • Jo Koo (Visible Secret 2) (3) 1%
  • Rain Li (If U Care...) (3) 1%
  • Cathy Tsui (The Saving Hands) (1) 0%

Commentary: In truth, I think Angelica Lee has the most talent out of everyone on the above poll, Winona Ryder and my sister included. I would rank Karena Lam, Charlene Choi, Candy Lo and Jo Koo right below her. Still, it's amazing that so many people chose Karena Lam; I expected this poll to have a much more evenly distributed turnout. However, Cathy Tsui getting only one vote is fine by me.

    Poll #12: What should Hong Kong do to improve their films? - Posted November 15th, 2002
Total votes: 195
  • Send young filmmakers to school in other countries. (11) 6%
  • Import talent from other countries. (7) 4%
  • Have Johnnie To direct everything. (10) 5%
  • Start a serious film school program in Hong Kong. (37) 19%
  • Have filmmakers apprentice in countries with thriving film industries, like the United States, Korea or India. (8) 4%
  • Educate the average filmgoer to appreciate and support film as a medium. (15) 8%
  • Make scriptwriting a required course for gradeschoolers. (11) 6%
  • Ban the following people: Wong Jing, Michael Wong and Ekin Cheng. (17) 9%
  • All of the above. (31) 16%
  • There's nothing wrong with Hong Kong film. (48) 25%

Commentary: A quarter of the people who voted suggested that there was nothing wrong with Hong Kong film. While I would like to agree, I simply can't. This year has been the weakest Hong Kong Cinema year in a while, and last year was pretty bad. The top films were probably A Chinese Odyssey 2002, The Eye, and Three: Going Home, and after that there's a substantial drop-off in quality. Granted, I have yet to see Hero, Infernal Affairs, Just One Look or Hollywood Hong Kong, but a Top 10 list this year would still likely include My Left Eye Sees Ghosts and Love Undercover, which wouldn't crack the Top 20 in other years. Hopefully something can be done, and banning Wong Jing, Michael Wong and Ekin Cheng is really not the solution.

    Poll #11: Who is your favorite action director? - Posted November 4th, 2002

  • Jackie Chan (44) 21%
  • Yuen Woo-Ping (42) 20%
  • Ekin Cheng (35) 17%

  • Ching Siu-Tung (21) 10%

  • Phillip Kwok (4) 2%
  • Jean-Claude Van Damme (3) 1%
  • Stephen Tung Wai (2) 1%
  • Ma Yuk-Sing (0) 0%

Commentary: Nobody voted for Ma Yuk-Sing; poor guy. Not surprisingly, Jackie Chan took first, though I fully expected Yuen Woo-Ping to win thanks to The Matrix. EKIN CHENG IN THIRD PLACE??? What is this world coming to? Ekin Cheng is not an action director. It's even debatable whether or not he's an actor. I'm sure he's a nice guy, but how can he be a better action director than Sammo Hung? On another note, I assume the three people who voted for Jean-Claude Van Damme have already reserved their spots in Hell.

Poll #6: Some readers have requested having ratings or grades in addition to the copious text on each film review. Should each review have a rating/grade? - Posted July 1st, 2002
Total votes: 110

  • Yes, a rating or grade would be good. (59) 54%
  • No. The "skinny" on each review is enough. (37) 34%
  • Who cares? I only look at the pictures. (9) 8%
  • Yes, but I prefer the Roger Ebert "thumb" method. (3) 3%
  • I only like text reviews. Get rid of everything else. (2) 2%

Commentary: This poll wasn't much of a mystery. As expected, the whole ratings thing won out, and my response to that can be found in this edition of Life with Kozo. However, I would like to thank all those who voted for the "skinny" on each review is enough (37 votes). I assume this means that literacy is not an antiquated concept.

Poll #5: Why the heck do you keep watching Hong Kong movies? - Posted June 24th, 2002
Total votes: 449

  • Hong Kong movies rock! (61) 14%
  • I love action! (52) 12%
  • The girls are hot! (52) 12%
  • While HK films are not as good as they used to be,
    I will support them in the hope that they will
    improve. (46) 10%
  • Sammi Cheng and/or Miriam Yeung (39) 9%
  • American films have been disappointing. (39) 9%
  • The guys are hot! (30) 7%
  • The sappy melodrama wins me over. (28) 6%
  • Wong Kar-Wai. (27) 6%
  • Two words: Ekin Cheng. (23) 5%
  • Wong Jing's comedy stylings are quite beguiling. (22) 5%
  • The wondrous existentialism. (19) 4%
  • I have no other choice. (5) 1%
  • None of the above. (4) 1%
  • My roommate only rents HK flicks and I'm too cheap to rent my own movies. (2) 0%

Commentary: If anything can be learned from this wacky reader poll, it's this: more men read this site than women. 52 votes state that the women are hot, whereas 30 claim the guys are hot. That's assuming that all voters are heterosexual, which would be bad form. In that case this poll teaches us nothing, except that Sammi Cheng and Miriam Yeung rule the roost, and Ekin Cheng is the midst of a serious career backslide. Also, action is still tops though very few action films are made anymore. And are there really two people out there who are too cheap to rent their own movies, and only watch HK flicks because their roomates do? My condolences.

Poll #4: What would you like to see on LoveHKFilm.com? - Posted June 17th, 2002

  • More jokes (16) 9%
  • An online store (11) 6%
  • Giveaways (10) 5%
  • Less jokes (0) 0%

Commentary: This is probably the most serious poll we've run yet, only because changes to the site are something we'd like to see. So...More Reviews (19%) came in first. Yay. Despite that winning, I (and my fellow reviewers) can only write so much. Who cares as long as it's free (14%): an unsurprisingly popular choice. Rest assured, that is the current plan. A Forum (14%): easily the most desirable choice for the Webmaster. And one that will definitely happen - should this site hang around. More Screen Captures (13%): when there's more web space. More pictures of the Twins (10%): here and done! Online chat with Ekin Cheng (9%): uh...love to, but I don't know him. And besides, he'd probably want to beat me up. More Jokes (9%): even if this choice had received zero votes, more snarky stuff would still be in the offing. Know this: LoveHKFilm.com = jokes. And Hong Kong Cinema. An online store (6%): in all likelihood, no. That is, unless someone tenders an offer I simply cannot refuse. Giveaways (5%): A surprisingly low turnout, which is great because I don't have the necessary support. Yet. Less Jokes (0%): I will readily bow to the popular demand of the readers.

Commentary: No surprise here. The US and its fellow North American territories won out big. If they hadn't I would have been seriously puzzled. Special credit goes to the three Hong Kong readers and the single one from South America. Thanks for visiting! I must buy you tea sometime. Of course, the biggest revelation in this poll is the number of votes. Ninety-six? Apparently nobody visits this site, which would make it more successful than my former job's web site.

  • I catch them at a friend's house. (2) 2%
  • I only watch Miramax releases. (0) 0%

Commentary: As expected, DVDs won big time. What's surprising is that Bootleg VCDs came in third. Was everyone who voted for that option joking? If not, I have this to say: what are you people thinking? If Hong Kong films continue to be watched through only pirated means, then sooner or later the only bootleg VCDs you'll be able to get will be for Star Wars Episode 2. And who the hell wants to watch that movie? Thankfully, nobody said that they only watched Miramax releases.

Poll #2: What type of Hong Kong movies do you like best? - Posted June 3rd, 2002
Total votes: 281

  • Crazy Hong Kong comedies (54) 19%
  • Three words: Martial arts movies (52) 19%
  • Urban romantic comedies (47) 17%
  • Crime action dramas (34) 12%
  • I like everything! (30) 11%
  • Anything with Ekin Cheng (19) 7%
  • Existential art films (15) 5%
  • Category III schlock (14) 5%
  • Horror films (14) 5%
  • I prefer the fine work of Jerry Bruckheimer (2) 1%

Analysis: Martial Arts (19%) was predictably in the Top 2, with Hong Kong's current fave - Urban Romantic Comedies (17%) - ending up at the Number 3 slot. Which leaves this question: how did Crazy Hong Kong Comedies (19%, 2 more votes than Martial Arts) end up in Number One? Either Wong Jing has lots of fans, or Crazy Comedy has tickled everyone out there at one time or another. What's disappointing is the poor showing for Existential Art Films (7%), which bodes ill for Wong Kar-Wai. Jerry Bruckheimer is right where he belongs, but how did two people vote for him? I take it those two people were waiting in line for Bad Company this past weekend.
