It’s quiz time again!
Do you know how the special effects like those below were created back in the days of black and white Hong Kong movies, when even the digital calculator did not exist?
The special effects of those days were really a far cry from what you see in today’s movies. Nevertheless, it did not stop us from having a good time at the movies. One particular scene from a Journey To The West (西游记 ) movie remains in my mind after more than 40 years. I remember nothing else about this movie except this one scene. Try to picture it. Wukong （孙悟空）and his master and Piggie are peacefully traveling on a raft on a river. Suddenly, a huge (T-rex size) hand emerges from the water behind them to grab them.
Of course the Chinese action movies those days also had very little bloodshed. The most violent scenes usually involved plunging your sword under the enemy’s armpit!
PS – Going for a break. Here’s wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.
