The Bride with White Hair (1993) - Brigitte Lin

Update: The Bride with White Hair (1993) | 白髮魔女傳

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Brigitte Lin Related, Change Log, Movie Reviews

The Bride with White Hair (1993) is a high-fantasy wuxia film, directed by Ronny Yu, and starring Brigitte Lin and Leslie Cheung. I remember watching this movie at home, on VHS with my family, after becoming a huge fan of Brigitte Lin. I remember being absolutely disappointed because I had no idea what was going on, thanks to the heavy censorship on the film (yep, most of Brigitte and Leslie’s scenes in the water? Gore? All gone). Now that I got to watch it 23 years later, I realized how beautiful the film was, and how masterfully Brigitte and Leslie […]

Handsome Siblings

Update: Handsome Siblings (1992) 絕代雙驕 Movie Page

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Brigitte Lin Related, Change Log

Short update: The page for Handsome Siblings (1992) is finally up. I have fond memories of this movie. It isn’t as well-recognized as the other Brigitte Lin wuxia classics, such as Swordsman II, New Dragon Gate Inn, The Bride with White Hair and Ashes of Time, mainly because it is peppered with too many low-level jokes. However, Brigitte is stunning as More, and Andy Lau shows off his funny, charismatic side. Ng Man Tat and Deanie Ip have great chemistry on screen, and Francis Ng gives an outstanding performance as the cowardly but evil Kong Yuk-long. I used to watch […]

Finally, I got the page for Secret Love for Peach Blossom Spring up and running. Please check the link here. After I am done with Handsome Siblings, my Brigitte Lin 1992 collection will be complete! Then I will move on to 1993, and 1994. That’s another 12 movies to go for the 90s…but I will get it done!

Portrait of Lin Ching Hsia

A Portrait of Lin Ching Hsia | 亞視林青霞寫真 (1991)

A couple of days ago a fellow Brigitte Lin fan left a comment on one of my videos in my YouTube channel. He asked if I could post the video of a 1991 documentary of Brigitte Lin by Asia TV, "A Portrait of Lin Ching Hsia" in English subtitles. Well it was a challenge. I do not know of any English subtitled versions of this video. So I thought it would be nice if I could do one, and many non-Chinese speakers could watch and understand more about Brigitte. Here is the video: There is a longer version out there, [...]

Coming up next…

I haven’t updated this site for a while. Have been feeling kind of tired lately with the season changing, and I didn’t want to do a slipshod job. The last thing I did was the music video for “Center Stage”, a favorite movie of mine in the 1990s. I think it was quite well edited, even though I didn’t put in any special effects beyond some transitions. The painful part was actually not being able to include all the great scenes. But the story has to flow so…snip. Last night, I was browsing through some of my old “Favourite” videos […]

Bilibili.com, Brigitte’s old movies and Mumblings, 19/9/2016

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Brigitte Lin Related, Personal Life
For the past couple of days I didn't put anything up. There was a public holiday, and I made full use of the long weekend to settle other personal stuff. I should've done those a long time ago, but kinda held them back due to my excitement about this site. Also I finally got past the crazy questions in order to sign up as a Level 1 member of Bilibili.com. It is a strange Chinese video sharing website that is dominated by anime and vocaloid stuff (what do you call this sub-culture?). But there are no shortages of good quality Brigitte [...]

Site Update 15/9/2016

It’s been almost a week since my last update. Mostly I have been putting up drafts of sections under another main section, wherever inspiration hits me. Now the main page is up, and so are the following sections: About Brigitte Lin About this site My Blog (obviously) Main Page for Movies Sub page for 1992 to 1994 films Sometimes I thought I could fly through with the contents, but actually finding suitable pictures, editing them, compiling them, putting them up, adjusting, etc. could actually take a whole night. I think after I set up the sub pages for Brigitte’s films […]

Update 12/9/2016

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Brigitte Lin Related, Change Log

Setup as of 12/9/2016: Finally managed to set up a temporary landing page, that leads to a video front page, and then to the main page. Currently only the About Brigitte Lin page and About This Site page is up. Looking forward to set up the movie main page as soon as possible. It will then link to the individual movie pages. 100 movies! I wonder how long I will take to finish all. But the journey is more important than the end result, so I’m going to take it slow and steadily.
