Top 50 Hong Kong Films of the Decade list republished at

Happy New Year! I’m still putting together a full list of titles voted on for the Top 50 Hong Kong Movies of the Decade, and it should hopefully be ready soon.

Just an FYI to those who participated: the full list of the Top 52 plus all the write-ups has been republished over at You can find the article over here.

This came about for a number of reasons. For one thing, it makes sense because it might help people who surf YesAsia to find decent titles outside of the usual promoted ones. Also, it’s an easy shortcut if anyone wants to see if certain titles are still available.

More important, however, I do work at YesAsia and they’re the primary reason that I now live in Hong Kong and am able to see first-run Hong Kong movies reasonably soon. They recruited me to work in their Hong Kong office five years back, and much of the site’s progression in the last few years can indirectly be attributed to them.

So, occasionally providing YesAsia with relevant content - like the numerous reviews that get cross-posted over there - seems the least that can do for them. I’m not sure that I’ll share any other Top 50 lists from this site in the future. It definitely won’t happen if we do a poll for the Worst 50 Hong Kong Films of the Decade.

Back in a day or so with the full list!

    I hope I get to see your personal pick of top 50. Your opinion to me is more important than the majority.

    My impression was that the synopses accompanying the Top 50 movies were more unambiguously enthusiastic than the full reviews of these same movies on this site. How come (if I’m not mistaken, that is)?

    @laicheukpan, I’ll publish it within this month, but I’m having some connectivity problems that make putting up lots of content (images, etc.) a bit problematic. As is, the full list of all voted on movies will likely be one large text piece.

    @viktor, your impression is not incorrect. Writing those little blurbs was tough for me, but I did it try a different sort of writing than the site’s usual reviews. Given the way that I write reviews nowadays (i.e., look at both the good and bad, evaluate them from an audience perspective), they’re not that effusive.

    The blurbs allowed me to simply write about the movies good points, and have fun with them. Actually, I’m lucky in that I genuinely like or enjoy all 52 of the voted-in films, even if the reviews were mixed on the site. If, for example, BUTTERFLY LOVERS had been voted in I would have had a tough time writing anything about it.
