Besides the cute icons, there are more these days in my life.

The Shanghai International Film Festival

I feel luck to live in Shanghai. The recent SIFF brought about 700 films from many countries to Shanghai. It is a hard job to select the right movies from the long list. Most of the movies are shown only once or twice, and distributed in 19 cinemas around the city.

Wendy and I went to see the Julia Roberts’ Closer this Tuesday. Interesting move, although it is a little bit old – a 2004 movie. Nice movie. People told me this [R] grade movie was abridged for the SIFF already.

I feel a little bit strange for so many people stay in the same cinema. Why? Thanks to the current film restriction system, I cannot imagine a [R] grade movie to be show officially in China.

Two official movies were impacted by the censorship this month. I planned to see the Da Vince Code. I love the book every much, and eager to see the movie. The original show time for the movie is pretty long, but all shows in all cinema was shutdown suddenly on June 9. No explanation was given. This created some chaos. I saw Jifeng Book Store posted apology’s letter in their store, stating “the original buy book, and get ticket for Da Vince Code program has to be stopped, since the show of the movie was stopped. As our customer, you have the right to…” Another movie “Mission Impossible III” was still not clear whether those guys think it is right for the intelligence of the People or not.

Friends Leaving Shanghai for Beijing

Another friend came to see me and said good bye to me. He is leaving Shanghai for Beijing. He started a start-up, and decided Beijing is the right city to get started. (Three “start” in one sentence. :-D)

He is my third friend who moved to Beijing to start or run a company in the last two months. Obviously, Beijing is more attractive for Internet start-ups. I partly agree with this idea. So good luck to them, and good luck to those who still stay in Shanghai.

Rain is Back to Shanghai

It rained. It was pouring this afternoon till night in Shanghai. Did I suggest visitors to bring umbrella? It is not necessary now. I don’t think to have an umbrella or not made any different tonight in the pouring rain.

    Best time to see movies is when it’s pouring rain. Let us know your thoughts after you see the Da Vince Code movie and why you “love” the book. MI3 is a so so movie for us overseas only worth watching the chase scenes shot in Pudong with Tom Cruise jumping off skyscrapers and running along the canals of Zhouzhuang or Wuzheng, didn’t figure out which watertown.

    As to shutting down the 2 movies, it has to do with politics or profits more than anything else …

    Re: Da Vince Code. I am very diappointed with the moive, the book goes into detail to explain the in and out of things which makes it interesting to follow.

    MAXIMS of ALTRUISM:

    1. Abortion, murder, or moolah won’t save thee. Only Jesus Christ;

    2. Life’s FAR too short to go to the abyss of Misery for eternity. But, yet, many people choose exactly that;

    3. Repent and believe! WWIII looms!! Bush’s a puppet for Satan, controlled by the Illuminati;

    4. Only 2 realms after our lifelong demise, our Finite Existence… and 1 of ’em ain’t too cool.

    5. Choose: Our Mighty God vs. your wimpy ego;

    6. Never leave me, Lord Jesus, as I’ll never leave you.

    GOD BLESS!
