Earlier today I watched Green Hornet on IMAX!!! And I have to say this is really Jay Chou‘s movie!!!
I’m a big fan of the TV series. I used to watch it when I was in elementary school. Our classes were in the afternoon, and on Wednesdays, it would be shown on TV. However, the film adaptation isn’t the same as the one i saw on TV. The Green Hornet didn’t do any butt kicking (pardon the word), instead it was all Kato who was doing it. But I think it’s a good thing that happened, for this is Jay Chou’s big break in HOLLYWOOD!!! And this movie screamed Kato all throughout!!! Go Kato!!!
Jay Chou is not new to movies, in fact he acted and even directed movies like Secret. This is probably my favorite Jay Chou movie! Oh and this is the one he directed. And mind you, this is his other job.. the other being a singer song-writer. He composes and writes most of the songs in his albums! This is guy is a genius!!!
Not long ago, I posted a video of his song Dao Xiang (Fragrance of Rice). That remains to be my favorite Jay Chou song. But today, I had to look for one that sounds pretty good, and one you could appreciate even without understanding it. And I decided on Back to the Past.
This is a bit of an old song, and as you see on the video, Jay looks a bit different from the way he looks now. But remember, this song was released in 2002 — so of course he looks different! This song was composed by himself, though the words was done by someone else. It’s a nice song… and it reminds me of the taiwanese songs from 5 years ago.. most of it sounds like this. Don’t get me wrong, I first fell in love with Mandarin songs before I did Kpop and Jpop.
I think Jay looks better now, compared to before. He was skinny. But at that time skinny guys and long haired guys were the trend. The actress in the video looks familiar.. just couldn’t place her.. if you knew then leave a comment to enlighten me ^_^
Hope we can see more of him on the Hollywood scene!
Go Jay Chou!!! kk ^_^
