My updates will contue to be erratic at best. I had forgotten what a hassles it all is.

Went to see Shanghai Knights last weekend which inspred me to review and old Donnie Yen film, Ballistic Kiss. Oh, and a shorty on Shanghai Knights as well.

Added a teeny bit to my short review of The One.

It has taken me awhile, what with a horrid cold and all, but I have finally completed my review of Black Mask including a comparison of the Hong Kong and American DVD versions.

Of course, that was just in preparation for Black Mask 2: City of Masks, coming soon.

I also noticed an error with the link in 2002 to the picture of Chiu. This has been corrected.

Here's my look back at 2002 with some pretty good films I saw last year.

Now you can read the site and wear the stuff. Visit the new Cafe Press store, please.

Here at NotComingSoon.com we are still trying to come up with a slogan. So far we have:

Obviously, these aren't quite right so we are having a contest. If you have a suggestion that's catchy or funny, please email me at NCS@NotComingSoon.com or use this form. The decision of the judge (that's me) is purely subjective and final. The number of winners will be determined by the judge. Each winner will receive a NotComingSoon.com T-shirt with his winning slogan and the glory of seeing the slogan on this site. Profanity will automatically be disqualified. Remember to include a return e-mail address in case you win. This address will be used solely to contact contest winners and not sold or otherwised used for nefarious purposes. The contest ends when I first open my e-mail on February 4, 2003.


Happy New Year! I am still working on 10 Pretty Good Movies. I need to refresh my memory about some films I saw early in the year.
