...even though you said nothing of the cinematography. Long story short, I know the cinematographer, Patrice Cochet, and while I've yet to see this film, I'm glad you liked it.

Harry, for as much as people trash you as some kind of shill, I delight in your trashing of Sundance. I hope this is true bitterness over the attitudes of some of these MENSA members who produce and criticize this tripe and not just resentment for not being invited to one of their parties. BTW, "Better Luck Tomorrow" sounds intricate and smart. Hope I have the opportunity to see it.

suppose you think every non-american-white film should be racially subtexted and titled? the world is a better place without people like yourself.

I personally must say that I'm rather naive in this issue, though your post came across as another dick of a talkbacker trying to be the funny guy. Simple as that. As I wrote the post, I was thinking "sure, he wasn't being serious or nothen" though then thought "but man I'm sick of these talkback jerks". I too can't stand people who take the whole 'racism' (or even 'sexism' for that matter) issue to extreme levels- ie a classic example was a TV ad from last year set on an island with a couple of Jamaican guys laughing at the poor white dudes rubbing on sunscreen/cream/lotion.... it was banned, though it was all in good fun and in no way did myself or anyone I know of find it offensive. Anyhow, soz if I took it the wrong way- its just hard not to here at AICN!

i thought "chinese boyz-n-the hood" was pretty funny. that wasn't offensive in the slightest. this movie sounds worth watching to me purely from the plot. it is really nice to see an entire cast of asian-american actors in a movie where the theme isn't about identity. not that there isn't a place or even a need for that, it's just asian-americans can do more to show something abt our lives besides struggling tou nderstand our identity as a minority.

www.betterlucktomorrow.com I hope that this film doesn't get hurt by Orange County... another movie based in orange county (obviously)

You've got to be kidding me. I assumed the Talk back order was a glitch in the system. HARRY, IF YOU ARE DOING THIS DELIBERATELY PLEASE STOP. It is impossible to get any coherent line of argument if you can't tell which came after which. Aaaaaaaaaggggghhhh!

Where did the dead guy find a cell phone battery that lasts for 6 months?

K, dude? You would please a whole lot of people, and he says at his test site that it won't be a problem for him to put the system into AICN.

I'm sure other people know this by now, but I was shocked to hear about it. Apparently he was brought to the hospital in full cardiac arrest.

Dear Sirs, I understand the need to advertise and I even forgive the "pop-ups" that frequent this site. But please, this latest one is beyond annoying. Those poor little engineers with nothing better to do than to devise "pop-ups" that can't be closed by any normal means are really pathetic. Please AICN I beg you to ditch these "force fed" ads and grow some respect for your audience. Thanx

"Wasn't aware that I was being particularly racist... Comment: Which is kind of hard to allege in this instance, as I am of the non-white persuasion myself." So what are you saing Christopher? That only white people are racist? C'mon now

...you see Web banners sporting the "for your consideration" tagline! For a second, I could've sworn I was leafing through a copy of Variety or some other trade mag...

Anyone been to see this yet at Sundance...? its not released here in the UK until the 20th of Jan and I'd love to hear a review from someone in the US. It concerns the shooting of 28 people in my home town of Derry in 1972 by the British Army, 14 people died most teenage boys, all innocent... Cheers....

I was able to see better luck tomorrow at a special screening and it is very good. I may be biased being asian but it provides a much needed new look for asians in america. I think many non asians will be surprised and entertained by this filim

Wow! A film Harry called "You've never heard of" that I actually heard of! That's a first. :-) I caught the trailer to it at SPUN and it looks damn good! I'll have to check out this review after I see it for myself. Avoid them spoilers!

parry shen was the asian kid in d.j. qualls band in that smash comedy hit 'the new guy'. i'm glad he's doing bigger and better things. not neccisarily bigger, in this case.

And Bree Turner is HOTTTTT. I'd spend another 5min of my life just to see her again. Nice job guys.

It's refreshing to see that MTV had the guts to pick this film up. Sure MTV hasn't had the biggest and most respectful films in past years, but at least they recognize that their audience in this day and age isn't just white America and black Hip-Hop. As Roger Ebert himself proclaimed at the premiere at Sundance, "Asian Americans in film can be whatever the hell they wanna be." (You can see a clip of that on their betterlucktomorrow website by the way) I never thought I'd have so much respect for that fat bastard.

I guess some people just didn't understand that it was supposed to be bad, making fun of Hollywood-uplifting-movie conventions, etc. Oh, well. DANGEROUS LIVES wasn't bad, either, though certainly not A-list material; a lot better than some of the movies Harry's raved about, though (xXx, anyone?). But RUN, RONNIE, RUN must be released at all costs. Mirimax is only hurting themselves, in terms of credibility, by releasing every vomit-inducing Freddie Prinze, Jr. movie that comes out, while sitting on this certain masterpiece. Fuck you, Weinstein.
