@ What are the movies that deeply touched you? Why?

Who are the actors and actresses you admire the most?  Why do they attract you?

Now  there are more and more animation movies such as "A BUG'S LIFE" and "THE PRINCE OF EGYPT" which gradually become popular.  Do you like to see them in theaters? Or do you think it is a waste of money to see such " cartoons"?

Making soundtracks for movies has become a fashion.  Have you listened to some great songs or music from soundtracks and want to recommend?

Why are the movies made in Taiwan  in crisis?  Why  do people prefer to see foreign films rather than Taiwanese productions?  Do you have any idea about how to improve this situation?

  According to the list of the nomination, the nominees of "actors in a leading role" are Roberto Benigni in LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, Tom Hanks in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, Ian McKellen in GODS AND MONSTERS, Nick Nolte in AFFLICTION and  Edward Norton in AMERICAN HISTORY X.  Do you agree with the nomination?  Are there other good actors you think having good performances in movies?
