[vadisworld - my way, my world] The Sparkle of Your Eyes





The sparkle of your eyes
is brighter than diamonds
Oh so beautiful a sight
warmth to my frozen heart

Oh Lord help me
keep the sparkle alive
Though it's not mine to have
I'll lit the sparkle 'till I die

If tears hide the sparkle away
And anger fire sets the eyes ablaze
Let the warmest day
wipe the tears away
And the coolest night
soothe the flaming heart

"Oh, wish I can see that sparkle again..."

Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer

Rating:★★★★
Category:Movies
Genre: Action & Adventure
Source Link: Flixster
http://www.flixster.com/movie/fantastic-four-rise-of-the-silver-surfer

Plot: The enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel...( read more ) the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.

Note from a Flixster Reviewer: (I had to agree with him, though! - BJ Vadis)
First thing I have to say is that people that don't read comic books won't really get full value of the movie. If you do know, then you would fully understand what happens at the end of the whole movie. I personally found this movie to be better than the first. The storyline was alright, and the special effects were done really well. The special effects, the Silver Surfer and Jessica Alba are probably the only things saving the movie from flopping. Speaking of the Silver Surfer, they portrayed him pretty well in the movie even though there are some things they changed from the comics. For those that want a quick synopsis of what the movie is about. The Silver Surfer comes to Earth to help scope out if the planet is worthy for his master, Galactus, to devour. While on Earth, the Silver Surfer's cosmic powers affect the planet which catches the awareness of the Fantastic Four. From there, they encounter the Silver Surfer, and with the help from Dr. Doom (which has been revived due to the Surfer) defeats the Surfer. From there, the team then has to defeat Dr. Doom and the arrival of Galactus. I won't spoil the ending for you guys, but if you do want to know without watching the movie, feel free to send me an e-mail. Overall the movie is alright, but could have been better. One of the thing that many fans would be complaining about would be the physical appearance of Galactus. In this movie he is portrayed as a giant cloud that basically covers the planet and devours it by sticking cloud tentacles into the planet and sucking it dry. Many might have dislike the fact that he wasn't a giant purple tights wearing freak chomping on the planet. What i felt they should have done was to have him as a gas cloud, but make the cloud shaped as Galactus portrayed in the comics. This would have been best for the movie, but what is done and done and we got to live with it. Once again, the movie is alright, and I guess watch it if you enjoy the Fantastic Four.

Cantonese: Ley5 Lin4 Git6

Jet Li (born Li Lianjie)is a Chinese martial artist, actor and action star. He is one of the most recognized and famous actors and martial artists in Asia and one of the few actors from China that has gained wider fame outside of Asia.


Biography

Li's father died when he was just two, and his mother, who was very protective, sent him to the wushu academy at the age of eight. Li did not know he had a stepbrother by the name Brandon Soo, who had also been sent to the wushu training academy for martial arts training, and they grew up not knowing each other. Finally at the age of 21 Brandon and Jet begun tournament training and had competed against each other. Whilst Brandon had more experience, Jet won. Through this experience, they figured out a way of fighting using less mobility with more strength and power together; this became the art of tingjao.
As an athleteJet Li participated in the sport of wushu in the non-sparring event. He began his wushu career as a member of the Beijing Wushu team, an athletic group organized to perform martial arts forms during the All China Games. As a member of the team, he received wushu training and went on to win fifteen gold medals and one silver medal in Chinese wushu championships:
1974 — Youth National Athletic Competition: broadsword form gold medal, optional empty-hand form gold medal, all-round gold medal;
1975 — Third Chinese Wushu Championships: long fist form gold medal, spear form silver medal;
1977 — National Wushu Competition: long-fist form gold medal, broadsword form gold medal;
1978 — National Wushu Competition: long-fist form gold medal, optional empty-hand form gold medal, broadsword form gold medal, all-round gold medal;
1979 — Fourth Chinese Wushu Championships: long-fist form gold medal, optional empty-hand form gold medal, broadsword form gold medal, sparring form gold medal, all-round gold medal. All his optional empty-hand form medals were won with a form called fanzi yingzhuaquan (翻子鷹爪拳, Fanzi eagle claw). His success led to the PRC declaring Jet Li to be a "National Treasure".
As an actor

The fame gained by his sports winnings led to a career as a martial arts film star, beginning in mainland China and then continuing into Hong Kong. After his success in Hong Kong, and establishing a cult following in the U.S., Jet Li established a presence in American films, beginning with role as the lead villain in Lethal Weapon 4, which also marked the first time he has ever played a villain in a movie. His first leading role in a Hollywood movie was in Romeo Must Die. Some of his more famous Chinese films include:
The Shaolin Temple series (1, 2 and 3), which are considered to be the films which sparked the rebirth of the real Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng, China;
The Once Upon a Time in China series (Chinese title: Wong Fei Hung), about the legendary Chinese folk hero;
Fist of Legend (Chinese title: Jing Wu Ying Xiong), a remake of Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury (Jing Wu Men in Chinese, named after the martial arts school);
The Fong Sai-Yuk films, about another Chinese folk hero. As one might expect from a martial artist of his caliber, he performs most of his own stunts.

Jet Li starred in the 1995 movie, Shu dan long wei, known in English as "Courage of a Mouse and Power of a Dragon". The movie, known in the US as either High Risk or Meltdown, portrays Jet Li as a cop who becomes disillusioned after his wife is murdered by crimelords. Along the way, he pairs up with a wacky sell-out actor, Frankie (played by Jacky Cheung), and proceeds to engage in a series of violent battles in a high-rise building. The setting is similar to that of Die Hard (which interestingly, is known in China as Fo Dan Wei Long, or "Courage of a tiger and power of a dragon"). In July 2001, Jet Li and Jackie Chan agreed to produce and star in an action movie which was to be released in 2002 or 2003, but no further news of their collaboration surfaced until 2006. In 2002, the film Hero was released in the Chinese market. This film was both a commercial and critical success. Li departed from his usual martial arts actions films with the 2005 drama, Unleashed (a.k.a. Danny the Dog) where he portrays an adult with the mentality of a child who has been raised like an animal. Although his martial arts skills are indeed utilized, it is a somber film with more depth than had been previously seen in Li's films, and co-starred dramatic actors, Bob Hoskins and Morgan Freeman. His latest martial arts film epic is Fearless. Although he will continue to make movies, Fearless is his last martial arts epic. In Fearless, he is known as Huo Yuanjia, the real-life founder of Chin Woo Athletic Association, who reportedly defeated foreign boxers and Japanese martial artists in publicized events at a time when China's power was seen as eroding. Together with the film Fist of Legend, Li has portrayed both Chen Zhen, the fictional student and avenger of Huo Yuanjia, as well as Huo Yuanjia himself. Fearless was released on September 22, 2006 in the United States where it reached second place in its first weekend.

I stepped into the martial arts movie market when I was only 16. I think I have proved my ability in this field and it won't make sense for me to continue for another five or 10 years. Huo Yuanjia is a conclusion to my life as a martial arts star.
Jet Li has stated in an interview with the Shenzhen Daily newspaper that this will be his last martial arts epic, which is also stated in the movie's television promotions. However, he plans to continue his film career in other genres. (To Clarify, he said that Fearless would be his final Kung-Fu film. A kung-Fu film is an epic film that deals more with religious and philosophical issues, like Fearless and Hero, but plans to contiune action and martial arts films.) Li's latest film, Rogue, began principal photography in the spring of 2006, re-teaming Jet Li with actor Jason Statham and action choreographer Corey Yuen. In May 2006, there was an official announcement that Jackie Chan and Jet Li would be making a movie together and are both working on a script at the moment. The film is rumored to be based on characters and storylines from the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West. The film is scheduled to start filming in early 2007, after Chan completes filming on Rush Hour 3.
Personal lifeIn 1987 Jet Li married Beijing Wushu Team member and Shaolin Temple series co-star Huang Qiuyan, with whom he had two children. They divorced in 1990. Since 1999, he has been married to Nina Li Chi (born Li Zhi), a Shanghai-born, Hong Kong-based actress. He has two children with her as well, Jane (born 2000) and Jada (born circa 2002). 1999 Step brother Brandon Soo was introduced into the movie scene. Jet Li was in the Maldives when the tsunami hit during the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Although it was widely reported at the time that he had died during the disaster,[citation needed] he only suffered a minor foot injury, caused by a piece of floating furniture, while he was guiding his daughter to safety.[1]

Trivia
Once, as a child, when the Chinese National Wushu Team went to perform for President Richard Nixon in the United States, Jet Li was asked by Nixon to be his personal bodyguard, to which Li replied, "I don't want to protect any individual. When I grow up, I want to defend my one billion Chinese countrymen!" which earned him much respect in his homeland.http://www.jetli.com/jet/index.php?s=life&ss=essays&p=7
He turned down Chow Yun-Fat's role in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because he promised his wife that he would not make any movies during her pregnancy.[citation needed]

Agreed to do Lethal Weapon 4 after the producer promised to give him leading role in his next movie..which was 'Romeo Must Die'
