「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

wall-e 真係實至名歸~~

Wall-e 我都有睇過,主題正確,畫工精細,可能 target 是年幼一代,故事比較單薄。去年的得獎者 Ratatouille 講美食是要令人喚起美麗回憶,比較適合成年觀眾,畫工同樣超一流。

兩片都好睇,故先後贏出Oscar,實至名歸!

No doubt Slumpdog Millionaire is a popular and entertaining movie. It has generated a bit of controversies as I mentioned in my blog. However, I do not see the 2009 Best Picture as a golden classic like Casablanca or Citizen Kane that most people will still want to see many years from now.

Hari 兄:
Slumpdog Millionaire 已在本港上映優先場,到周四才正式上映,港譯:一百萬零一夜,好似同英文名唔多喇哽。
聞說片主初時,沒有想過,在北美作公開放映,而是直接製成DVD在市場售賣,卻意外成為話題,賺到盤滿缽滿,不知是否事實,還望兄臺代為查證。
不過我沒有意欲想入戲院睇 slumdog millionaire 可能留返睇DVD,因為它根本只是 DVD貨式罷了。
