The All-star fantasy epic “The Monkey King” is likely to dominate the Chinese film market and beyond during the Spring Festival season. “The Monkey King,” the newest adaption of the Chinese classic ancient novel “Journey to the West,” written by Wu Cheng'en in the Ming Dynasty, will be screened all over China from Jan. 31, the first day of the Chinese lunar New Year. The film is directed by Hong Kong director Cheang Pou-Soi and stars Chinese movie stars Donnie Yen, Chow Yun-fat, Aaron Kwok, Joe Chen, Peter Ho, Kelly Chen, Zhang Zilin and Gigi Leung. “It is not just a film, it is like a big engineering project,” said Wang Haifeng, chairman of the film’s production company, the Filmko Entertainment Group. “I totally agree. We have spent years making it happen and we should be thankful to the thousands of people who worked on the film.” According to Wang, the film is the true blockbuster and cost a total of 500 million yuan (US$82.6 million) to make and promote. About 250 million yuan (US$41.3 million) was spent on the filming and the rest was spent on post-production, distribution and promotion. “Actually, we only spent 70 million yuan (US$11.5 million) on the all-star cast,” he said, “The major expenditure was on the special effects.” The “Monkey King” production team asked Hollywood top-class special effects veterans and companies for help. The film’s 3D design was done by Daniel L. Symmes, who worked on “The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” while the make-up effects were done by Shaun Smith and his team, who worked on “300” and “I Am Legend." The visual effects advisor is David Ebner, who worked on "Alice in Wonderland” and “Spider-Man 3” while the visual effects supervisor Kevin Rafferty, who worked on “Men in Black II” and “Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.” “We lavished more than 200 million yuan on special effects. While Chinese visual effects companies worked on hundreds of scenes, nearly 2,000 scenes were done by international teams in North America, South Korea, India, Thailand and Australia,” Wang said.

The “Monkey King” project was begun in 2008, and the filming started in 2010, when the producers felt that film technology had developed enough to depict the fantasy scenes from “Journey to the West,” after watching “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. At this time, the Chinese film market also started to expand rapidly.

Dancin’ with Myself | Jetpack Monkey | The collected works of Gene Kelly

If watching Gene Kelly dance doesn’t make you happy, I just don’t know what to tell you. If it does, though, this vid will bring you pure joy and delight.

“The Monkey’s Mask” is a terrible movie

The lead is a cute soft butch lesbian detective who has an affair with Kelly McGillis (in smoking hot proto-Silver Fox Mode) playing a university professor who teaches poetry.  Unfortunately, their chemistry together can’t quite make up for the leaden dialogue, uneven acting and a “plot twist” that could be seen from space.

But.

A friend recently sent me a copy (probably not-quite-legit.  Ahem) of the movie dubbed in Italian.  INSTANT improvement, because everything is better in Italian.  Even the title now sounds like that of an art film: La Maschera di Scimmia.

I would post a clip but the recording seems to argue with every DVD-ripping program I’ve tried, so here’s a few stills.  PM me in Chat if you’d like a shareable link to the file - non ve ne pentirete…

LIKE THIS AND I WILL PROBABLY FOLLOW YOU

I have a love hate relationship with photographing myself doing yoga. It’s given me a lot of self-confidence actually being able to see all the awesome things my body is capable of, but it can also cause me to over-analyze and nitpick when something isn’t perfect (and I’ve found it nearly impossible to do a pose perfectly when having to worry about the camera timer).

Today I’m trying to let go of the constant analysis (while still making sure I’m doing the poses correctly and safely) and just love myself regardless of my faults. When I do monkey pose, I just feel so open and carefree. There’s no better feeling.
