Q: Anyone care about the BIFF?

So apparently the 3rd Beijing International Film Festival is being held this week.  Anyone actually care? Heard anything about it?

  Haven't heard a thing, no; but war films, kung fu flicks and historical dramas.............? Can't get enough of them myself. I heard there are high hopes for a film which was sold as being a historical drama, set during the second world war, about a guy who does kung fu. Can't wait.

The only Chinese films worthy of awards are those which get banned by the "3 Inch" Party (thanks crimo). For real, though, the banned ones tend to be pretty good, especially if the director gets forbidden from making films for a couple years.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
