  2. The Concretes

    Posted Aug 15th 2004, 12:00am by Alister McMillan

    ... Alister McMillan The Concretes The Concretes (Astralwerks) My first attempt to play this debut from the Swedish eight-piece is a blur after track four. Mind wandering, I picked up a book for 30 minutes before realising the album had finished. The novel wasn't particularly good, nor the album bad. Both were no more than pleasant diversions. It took The Concretes 10 years ...

  3. Rugged landscapes of HK in the spotlight

    Posted Jul 08th 2008, 12:00am by Staff Reporter

    ... Carrie Lok Hong Kong is more than just the concrete jungle it is widely seen to be- and rocks, rather than cement, form some of its most stunning features. That is among the messages in 10 books on the countryside to go on sale at the Book Fair next month. 'Hong Kong is not only a concrete jungle,' Association for Geoconservation chairman Young Ng Chun- yeong- author ...

  4. Fallen stars

    Posted Apr 07th 2004, 12:00am by Staff Reporter

    ... There are doubts about how popular the Avenue of Stars- with the handprints of (hopefully, all top) Hong Kong movie stars set in concrete- will be when it opens on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront this month. Its pulling power may depend on related attractions, such as television sets screening the stars' movies. How would you make the avenue more popular? Write to us. ...

    ... Anderson's previous solo efforts. Perhaps the fuller, more concrete sound is a sign that Anderson works best with a partner (like he did back in his Suede heyday), as all but two tracks were ...

  8. Big Blue Lake (Film)

    Posted Nov 18th 2011, 12:00am

    ... Barry C Chung When you think of Hong Kong, 'big' or 'blue' or 'lake' are probably the last things you'll associate with our concrete jungle. So it's ironic that local director Jessey Tsang Tsui-shan's film is named Big Blue Lake. (Spoiler alert: Big Blue Lake- as a lake- does not exist, not in the story nor in Sai Kung's Ho Chung, ...

    ... Barry C Chung OK, think of Hong Kong: big or blue or lake are probably the last things you'll associate with our concrete jungle. So it's ironic that local director Jessey Tsang Tsui-shan's somewhat autobiographical, part-fictional and somewhat-documentary film is named Big Blue Lake. (Spoiler alert: Big Blue Lake- as a lake- does not exist, not in the story nor in Sai ...

  10. Fantastic Mr Fox (DVD)

    Posted Jun 11th 2010, 12:00am by Adrian Wan

    ... Adrian Wan Stop-motion animation is used to great effect in Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr Fox. It gives the characters a concrete edge, making them less cartoony. It fully immerses the audience into the film. The story follows the lives of Mr Fox (voiced by George Clooney), a chicken thief who decides to settle down when his wife (Meryl Streep) falls pregnant. But when their cub ...
