it's rated so high because white people are still new to these kinds of movies...and it amazes them :P

ie crouching tiger hidden dragon...shaolin soccer...house of flying daggers...

they all did well at the box office cuz it's still a relatively new thing for them but it's not new to chinese people...that's why we dont think they are so great :P

You'tr completely missing the point then. Stephen Chow's movies are completely unique, and actually satire/pay tribute to all the kung fu movies that have been popular both in asia and north america. Of course it is to a lesser extent here, but it's not like north americans never knew about kung fu movies before now.

And movies like crouching tiger and flying daggers.. well they sort of fit into their own category as well, because until now, you have likely never seen such a wonderfully produced and directed movie. With these movies, I think it just 'happens to be' a kung fu movie.

So like ulic said, bruce lee was hugely popular here before you or I were even born.

Belive me, north americans aren't new to chinese or kung fu movies. And jaded chinese people don't (or shouldn't) find shaolin soccer or kung fu hussle to be 'more of the same'. Both movies were HUGELY popular in hong kong. In fact, they have been some of the most successful movies in HK in the past 10 years!

I think you are totally misunderstanding these movies, and what makes them popular. Maybe CBC's fit into their own category in this regard?

for me

stephen chow = comedy

so its big difference now with his new movies... they just arent as funny as his old stuff... u gotta admit to that. i guess he is trying out new roles... i myself would not mind him making a comedy like in the old days...

house of frying faggots was ok. the story line wasnt that bad, same with hero (same director i believe)... but to be honest, i saw it cuz it was the new movie out, and zhang zi yi was in it...

I agree, his older movies are nothing like the new ones. But you have to appreciate a director trying new angles (let alone ones that are totally unique to ALL movies). Especially when it comes to chinese movie-makers, who tend to stick with the same formula over and over.

haha, but i kinda like the old rebels vs the corrupt government stories. ive probably seen a good 100 movies all centralized around the same plot. and never seem to get tired of them.

its just gonna take a while to adjust stephen chows new rolls. he was typecasted as the king of asian comedy.

i think for the people that didn't find the movie to be good is because they don't have a good understanding of old hk movies. Most of the movie was an tribute to the old movies that made hk movies the way we love them. He takes the bunch of movies and adds new elements to it.
I personally enjoyed it, just had a good time trying to see what movie they were referencing.
