The Silver Spleen is creating Reviews of Hong Kong Movies

Honest, opinionated reviews of Hong Kong and other Chinese-language movies... in English.

I review new, recent, and classic movies. New reviews every week!

I also do videos of visits to movie locations, viewing audio from my in-cinema notes, and full-length commentaries with special guests, sometimes the stars and directors of the movies.

Occasionally I appear in a local movie, and I share the experiences in Memories of Making Movies.

I've lived in Hong Kong for more than 10 years. I moved here because of Hong Kong films. 

I previously taught Media, Communication, and Film at a university here. I also researched local cinema. I have a PhD in Intercultural Communication (but you'd never know it from my reviews).

When I dislike a movie, I'll tell you. Sometimes in words longer than four letters.

And when I like a movie, I'll tell you. I promise!

I don't steal movies. You shouldn't either. Pay for the privilege of watching them.

Last but not least, The Silver Spleen motto:
IF WE DON'T SUPPORT THE MOVIES THAT DESERVE IT, WE GET THE MOVIES WE DESERVE.
