Hello 2009

Already in 2009, what's next...Chinese New Year just around the corner. Time really flies when your occupied. The thing is there isn't much CNY films from Hong Kong releasing lately. We use to have Jackie Chan, Stephen Chow, Andy Lau and a whole bunch more coming up with great CNY blockbusters. But however, the past few years have been quite quiet. 

Is it because of the piracy plague which have somehow crippled the financial risk of releasing more films or the pool of Hong Kong stars are getting very limited and are struggling to find new talents to fill the gaps of the veterans. 

Well, let's hope in 2009 onwards we could see more positive support from government and the public to take responsible in reviving the film industry.
