「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

人類自以為自己必能勝天,自從識破基因 DNA 的一少部分密碼,就開始基因改造植物,更夢想創出新的生物,定要勝過天,而 cloning 是其中之一。連奧巴馬總統上任後,都推翻了布殊仔的禁令,批准研究 stem cell 幹細胞。

記得有網友都有提過一部電影 Species,講的都是人類加外星生物,而孕育出變種生物,但我沒有看過,不贅。

週末上網,發覺今次據講是有法國資本,效法荷里活的模式,在加拿大多倫多拍攝的 SpliceTrailers & Clips ,將於六月四日在北美上映。 登上香港雅虎網電影網頁,尚未見在香港排期上映,顧此不知道有冇中文譯名,還未知香港有冇得睇,因為香港片商,也要看北美的成績。

Sarah Polley Elsa, Adrien Brody Clive
Vincenzo Natali

在雅虎網上的 Splice 電影 劇照 Movie Stills 或可看看 Trailers & Clips


《Yahoo Movies》Clive and Elsa are a pair of brilliant scientists whose cutting-edge experiments in genetic engineering make them superstars in their field.

As devoted to their careers as they are to one another, they start conducting unauthorized experiments with new animal species that show great promise.

Drunk with their god-like powers, they introduce human DNA into one of their creations, producing a creature that is greater than the sum of its parts: a rapidly developing animal/human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder.

While this female creature inspires maternal feelings in Elsa, she evokes something far-from-paternal in Clive, something that poses a threat to them all.

Then, when this seemingly perfect organism makes a final, shocking metamorphosis, it is mankind itself that is threatened.


《Wikipedia》Young scientists Clive(Brody) and Elsa(Polley) achieve fame by successfully splicing together the DNA of different animals, creating new species.

In the pursuit of even greater scientific discovery, they secretly blend human DNA with their creations, ignoring their society's ethical and legal boundaries. The scientists name their creature "Dren".

Now they must come to terms with their decision as the thing quickly develops into a beautiful, yet deadly, winged creature-chimera.

這一隻人獸合成的雌性動物叫作 Dren,其實是由 Nerd 反轉來串成的,根據《Wikipedia》: Nerd is a term, often bearing a derogatory connotation or stereotype, that refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual activities, technical or scientific endeavours, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests that are unusual for one's age, rather than engaging in more social or popular activities. The nerd may be awkward, shy and unattractive. Therefore, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by peers, or will tend to associate with like-minded people.

而從 Nerd 翻轉過來的 Dren,當然不是 A Nerd,而是與 Nerd 完全相反,Dren 長成後將是人類的惡夢。雅虎 和 維基百科,都沒有寫下結局,但相信也不離是幾經辛苦,主角們殺死了怪物,但百密一疏,留下了孽種,方便若全球票房收入可觀,可以拍多幾集賺返多幾筆。

那麼你又有沒有發覺 Dennis,其實反過來串,就是 Sinned 呢?

All the nerds I know are making good money in this economy, so don't knock it. Nerds are cool.

Ha, most of the French movies that make it to the U.S are romantic comedies. It will be a breath of fresh air to watch a sci/fi made by the French. I don't know why but I am kind of thinking they are going to screw it up.

一pat pat咁,

我有睇 Species, 唔錯吖, 幾好睇噃, 故事好簡單, 係外星dna加上人類dna孕育出一個小女孩, 她成長很快, 擁有超能力, 然後四出找尋男性來交配, 遇到阻礙她的人就會殺.

呢類戲拍極都唔會完, 因為我們總對外太空感到好奇嘛.

嗰套係 "the fly"喎

hahaha I am the early bird this morning but do/did not get the worms!

Exile, yes Nerds are more attractive to the opposite sex these days their ability(ies) to earn big money guaranteed their success. So Nerds are cool not bore!

We shall not see "Splice" in here at Hong Kong on June 4th, in case you run out of more DVD viewing and seen this move please give us some feedback or movie critics.

Space :)

新鮮兄:我都記得“蒼蠅混合體” 個套叫“the fly” 港譯:變形人魔。 我一向怕怕這些電影,曾經租借過驚慄片的經典,很久很舊的“驅魔人”來看,毛骨聳然,已甚少選看這類電影。


the inner space said...

Macy 姐:聽來,你是驚慄片的愛好者,那就要耐心等等,Splice 有冇機會在香港上畫了。

furthermore 咁你有冇睇過“驅魔人”呢?

新鮮人 said...

space, macy,
不過嗰套"the fly"都係講哩類嘢架,
我唔怕睇滑突 (都會掩住半邊臉睇的),

macy said...


係吖! 我好喜歡睇驚慄片及鬼片.
“驅魔人”梗有睇過, 我記得係細個時, 係舅父家睇, 仲係用一餅卷片放映出黎睇, 拉晒窗簾, 相當好氣氛呢!

the inner space said...

ah! Macy 姐,原來是驚慄片大行家,Splice 不知在香港有冇得睇,到時等讀你評論。
