What made you feel disappointed? I havent seen it, but am more curious of reviews from people/fans then the critics.

Now, I havent seen any of the iterations of the novel (I actually saw Cruel Intentions and didnt even know it was a "highschool" version of said novel).

So how would this Asian version fare if there was no other film adaptation?

I wanted to ask, how is this title in "5 collections" already when it's not out for over a month?

I saw that one at yesasia.com. Released on 12/28 for only $23.99, and has English subtitles.

Tempting. Should I cancel my USA Amazon order and get the HK one?

My question to all is, Will the subtitles be better on the USA release?

Ive encountered times where an Asian import will have shoddy subtitles, as if the person doing the translating was fluent in Chinese but not so great with English grammar.

I wonder if that would be the case with the HK version?

Yeah I figure the USA version (Well Go) would have good subtitles being it's being marketed for English speakers.

My main concern was if I import this Hong Kong one. Would the subtitles be as good as Well Go?

Well, I've seen DVDs and Blu-rays with bad subtitles from companies based here in the US for English-language movies. Case in point -- Trespass, directed by Joel Schumacher, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman.

Hopefully nothing serious since the street date is about a month away.

Yeah. Hopefully just a generic generated email for those that pre-order titles this far in advance.

I never pre-ordered this early before, so I plead ignorance.

Got the delivery date from Amazon: Looks like I'll be getting it on Feb 14th (Awww, how romantic. Valentine's Day. I'll watch this Chinese-movie-with-Korean-lead-actor with my Korean wife. She'll dig it)

Lucky for me, I haven't seen any of the other iterations of this film. Maybe that means I'll enjoy this more
Either way, I've been looking forward to this for a year. I just wanna watch this already

For one, all movies intended for distribution in China are supposed to be viewable by all ages, so the movie could not have been as graphic as a Westerner might expect of this kind of story. Also, this movie mimics the tropes and style of melodramas from yesteryear, so yes, the characters do seem to make a "big deal" out of "not much". You have to understand the context of 1930s' social mores."

Default "Dangerous Liasons" and Zhang Ziyi films --

She cries in every film I've seen with her, except "Rush Hour 2" and perhaps "House of Flying Daggers".

She says in interview that she had a difficult time crying, having to hunt for painful memoires -- until "2046," in which she said she "fell into my own pain". In the last scene with Tony Leung, leaning against the wall, she couldn't stop crying after director Wong Kar Wai said, "Cut!"

Her interviews on her experiencing in making that film -- working with Wong Kar Wai, who doesn't tend to provide a complete written script, or give his cast members indications as to who the character is or should be -- especially fascinate. She was confused, frustrated, even self-intimidated to the degree of actually wondering if she could act. Leung, having worked with Kar Wai, explained to her that she had to build her own character, from within, and with that she "got it". (And the result is terrific.)

(Leung had some discussion with Wong Kar Wai about the moustache. As he was to be the same character as in "In the Mood for Love," Kar wai wanted him to essentially be the same. Leung wanted to indicate that the character had to some degree changed, thus the moustache. Leung obviously won the "argument".)

I noticed elsewhere that someone asked if anyone had seen Zhang Yimou's "The Road Home," Zhang Ziyi's first film (not counting a prior TeeVee film in which she plays a ballerina). I have (in fact have at least three copies, as backups), and it's in my top five of all time. Not only is Ziyi adorable and luminous, and the story intimate and unique, but the cinematography (Zhang Yimou began as a cinematographer, but not on this film) is splendid, both in colors (most of it takes place in Autumn) and in framing of shots.

A gorgeous film all around. See the reviews on Amazon, including mine. But be forewarned that the the "spoilers" in those reviews are actually all over the place as to "accuracy"; i.e., they are riddled with errors as to what actually happens in the film.

How good is the film? For those to whom I've showed it, it immediately became an "instant top five". And the two films I most want on blu-ray are "A Man for All Seasons," and "The Road Home".
