(quote) Edward-4511 said: I'm on a bit of a Gianna Jun kick .... she's a South Korean actress. She is best known for the 2001 Korean comedy "My Sassy Girl" (which I have on import DVD).

Monday night I watched a horror movie she starred in a couple of years ago, "Blood: The Last Vampire". If you couldn't guess by the title it's extremely bloody; alas, the plot is a bit thin. I don't recommend it.

This evening I watched the first bit of a movie she made in Amsterdam in 2006, called "Daisy". Haven't gotten into the meat of the film yet but it looks more promising. It's directed by Hong Kong filmmaker Andrew Lau, who was one of two credited directors on the excellent HK crime thriller "Infernal Affairs".
BTW, "Gianna" is an Americanized screen name that she took for the release of "Blood: The Last Vampire", which I believe was the first role where she spoke mainly English for an entire film. Her Korean birth name is Jun Ji-Hyun. (Jun being her surname, which comes first in Korean names.)

Through the first 15 minutes of "Daisy", which was made earlier, she does speak a few words of English, but mainly Korean.

Shatter Island. It was on TV and I'm glad I didn't waste money on it in the movie theater. What a terribly predictable stinker.

Pacific Rim.

Nothing terribly deep, just big ol' robots battling big ol' monsters for two hours. But if that rings your bell, you should enjoy this one.
