    Hollywood finally came in around 1993 and converted the old movie theaters into modern multiplex theaters (which ironically ended up seating less people than the old theaters could.) Plus they launched with Jurassic Park and much as I love Jackie Chan and John Woo, you're competing with fricking dinosaurs. That was the beginning of the end. The handover in 1997 was looming as well so a bunch of talent emigrated to try to make it in the US (with mixed results.) The 97 handover would completely frick over the HK industry but the writing was already on the wall as early as 93

      I've been to old movie theaters. They SUCK. Who cares if the new ones seat less people? The old theaters had small, shitty folding seats, and the layout of the theater was so bad that every row in front of you hindered seeing the movie. Don't even get me started on the overall poor quality of the theater systems either.

        I just mean in terms of spectacle. I'd much rather rewatch Police Story or A Better Tomorrow than Jurassic Park but I'm pretty sure that would've been mindblowing in 1993, especially for an audience that was mostly used to their own movies rather than Hollywood stuff

      I thought most of them realized LA was a hellhole and went back to HK? I see Sammo Hung still making lots of stuff back in China. From what I've heard Chinese censorship is actually more lax than Hollywood as far as the overall content, just no LGBT or criticizing the government.

      I lived in Hong Kong for 10 years and I love that place so much, but 2019 and then the pandemic decimated the city and it's soul. Don't listen to the 1997 meme, HK was great right up until very recently.
      It's been more damaged by local government toadies then anything the central government mandated, and the influx of foreign power interference during the protest just gave Beijing more ammunition to push forward the implementation of the national security laws while local people suffered and it alienated generations of Hong Kongers who felt no other option but to flee to virtue signalling western nations who didn't follow up on their promises of support.

        I was going back and forth between Guangdong and Hong Kong for decades for business right up until COVID. I'm not Chinese or even Asian so what do I know, but I felt very little difference between the two places. They'd even show Hong Kong news on mainland TV, the only odd thing I saw was the way they censored out segments that were critical of the mainland government, would hard cut to families running through fields of flowers in slow-mo. Was eerie at first, but then I realized the censorship in the West is just more polished, the content is cut long before it ever goes to broadcast.

      It's much cheaper to just play banana republic.

      True in a lot of countries, but Hong Kong was a net benefit to Britain and the deal for Hong Kong was specifically only for the New Territories.
      You see Hong Kong is made up of a bunch of Islands then two significant land masses adjacent to China the nearest called The New Territories, then below that is Kowloon, then below that you have Hong Kong Island.
      The British had Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in perpetuity, they conquered it, it was there's but they leased the New Territories for 99 years from the Chinese.
      When the negotiation for the handover of the New Territories began in the 70s, the Chinese premier told the British he wanted it all back to which he was told to frick off, politiely so, but told no. Then the Chinese Premier said, "then we'll turn off the water and blockade Hong Kong so the people starve"
      The New Territories were also deeply intertwined with Kowloon and Hong Kong, the people who lived in the NT's worked in Kowloon and HK Island, rail systems were shared, roads, electricity grids, power systems, bureaucracy, it was all shared as they had been built together. It was seen as so much of a headache to separate the NTs from Kowloon and HK Island the agreement was made to hand all of it to China.
      With a promise and a deal that all legal rights, guaranteeing freedoms e.t.c. would be left the same for 50 years after the handover to which Beijing broke after 15 years of Chinese rule.

          Interesting you say that, because in 2019 was the year the protests against the Chinese government in Hong Kong were reaching a new level of unrest, people were being shot on the street, hundreds of thousands were marching every week, normal people up and down and then all of a sudden Covid and mass restrictions placed on movements, people were locked down, with restrictions in Hong Kong only fully lifting at the end of last year. Of course this killed any and all protests.

      I’ve probably seen 50 JC movies. So many I can’t remember them all sadly 🙁
      I used to get them on DVD by mail. It would be too much effort for me to try and do another JC rewatch. But I enjoyed a lot of it. There is no one else on his level of stunts and entertainment. Tom Cruise and Jason Statham, even Keanu can never measure up to what he did. There likely won’t be anyone close again. He’s a true legend.

        Traditional martial arts are superior to MMA. MMA has restrictions which make wrestling-centric styles superior, but in real life encounters the kung fu practitioner can employ fish-hooking, oil-checking, fine joint manipulation, heart-stopping pressure point applications, eye gouges, groin hammers, and other things which are explicitly illegal in MMA because of athletic regulation boards. Kung fu is as lethal and effective as ever.

    I don't think it's the CCP that's to blame. Hollywood censorship and esg quotas are far worse.
    What made Hong Kong special was because it was a fusion of Western and Eastern traditions. That appealed to broad audience. Whereas now they just make things for the Chinese market. Chinese cinema IMO is too melodramatic and robotic.

      >Hollywood censorship and esg quotas are far worse

      I am starting to think this as well. If you want to do straight up political activism with your movie, yeah Hollywood and China are about the same level of control over what messages are allowed or forbidden, but in Hollywood everything produced is required to be activism and re-enforce the message, whereas in China it feels like you are allowed to color outside the lines if you want to make entertainment not politics. Watched pic related the other day and it was weird to see something that was just genuine entertainment without any activism.
