God of Gamblers I

We have this DVD collection of Chow Yun-fat.My husband told me that I should watch the GOD OF GAMBLERS at first I was not into it by  by later part of the movie I noticed my self laughing and amazed how the story was about. Hahaha...As soon I finished the part I. I continued the second part ..It was really good too.

plays Ko Chun, an extremely talented and well known gambler. On the eve of a big confrontation with a famous Singaporean gambler, Ko walks into a trap set by Knife, an avid but a so-so gambler (Andy Lau), meant for an Indian servant. Struck on the head, Ko suffers from amnesia and regresses to a child-like state. Knife, not knowing who Ko is, takes him in and gives him a name, Chocolate, since Ko now has an over-obsessive love for a specific chocolate (French/Belgium Feodora brand),. As soon as he recognizes Ko's talents begins to exploit his abilities. This invites further trouble and trauma for Ko leading up to a big finale. Ko's bodyguard Dragon arrives after tracking him down to protect him from thugs who tried to kill him. After a fierce gun-battle in which Ko killed all his enemies, he became horrified and ran out into the street where he was struck by a vehicle. Moments later at the hospital, Knife came to visit him only to learn Ko has no memory of him and was thrown out by security to his dismay. Meanwhile, Ko Chun's cousin, Ko Yee helps the Singaporean gambler by giving him glasses that can see dots on cards (which tells him if it is a King, Queen, Jack, or Ace). During the big showdown, Ko Chun loses 2 rounds and during the last round, fools the Singaporean gambler thus winning all of the money. Then, the Singaporean gambler is sent to jail because he accidentally shot Ko Yee. In the end, Ko Chun remembers Knife and takes him to Las Vegas to gamble.

I really recommend that you watch this movie.I promise that You will not be bored watching it although it's kinda old but surely you will like this.

The Movie that makes me cry...

A Moment to Remember  is a 2004 South Korean film based on a 2001 Japanese television drama Pure Soul broadcast by Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation. It stars Son Ye-jin andJung Woo-sungA Moment to Remember follows the theme of discovery in a relationship and the burdens of loss caused by Alzheimer's disease. The movie was officially released on November 5, 2004 in South Korea.

The first segment of the film, staged in romantic comedy style, introduces the protagonists, a woman named Su Jin and a man named Chul Soo. The movie highlights their accidental meeting in a convenience store and confusion over a can of soda, followed by their subsequent courting despite the social standings that should have kept them apart.
The second segment follows the couple now settling into married life. Su-Jin learns to be a housewife as her husband cares for her. But as the segment progresses, Su-jin begins to display forgetfulness, including an incident in which a fire breaks out because of a forgotten stove. While Chul Soo caught the fire in time, the seriousness of the incident and others draw them to seek medical help.
The third segment involves the revelation of Alzheimer's disease and the couple's consequent response to it. Su Jin is heavily burdened by the knowledge that she will forget her husband and hides it from him at first until he seeks advice from the doctor himself. Despite the disease, they make the commitment to stay together and as the disease progresses, the trials the couple go through increase because of Su Jin's forgetfulness.
The fourth segment reveals Su-jin in the final stages of the disease and the grief Chul Soo experiences because of it. Yet he remains beside her, despite her lost memory, hiding his eyes behind sunglasses when he visits her so she can't see his tears.
The end of the movie finishes off with Chul Soo replaying the first time they met in the convenience store with all her friends and family in the store. In the final scene, Su-jin is riding beside her husband in the car in the sunset, and he can finally tell her, "I love you."
