For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Changchun Friends

a great way to get involved



Movies by Genre!


Winter is upon us and I am considering starting a movie night at World life club in Gui Lin Lu. I have a nice new HDMI TV which I think would be perfect for showing some great movies.

So I need your help, I want to compose a list of movies for each Genre. I think the main thing is that I am looking for the greatest movies ever made in each catergory.

a) Western

b) Sci-Fi

c) Action

d) Romance/Comedy

e) Period/Historic

Thanks for your help, and feel free to add a genre or 2:)

For sci-fi I suggest The man from earth by Richard Schenkman. 

The scenario is fascinating!!

Drama - Shawshank Redemption

Romantic comedy - 50 first dates.

LEON just got the vote at Rise immersion English school!

historic- Forbidden city by Zhang Yimou


Drama- La fille sur le pont by Leconte.

I will have to have a look at those, not seen either Alizee.

Action: Fight Club.

Western - Anything John Wayne (or the Lone Ranger)

Sci-Fi - Alien

Action - Tuxedo

Comedy - Liar, Liar

Historic - Tora, Tora, Tora

Western's for me are pretty dull, but Clint Eastwood is cool.
Adam sandler has produced some great movies recently in the romantic comedy sector. Funny people, grown ups and Just go with it are all really good movies.

Of course, if you want real, side-splitting laughter type comedy, you just absolutely have to play the CCTV 1 evening news.

f) War/ Military

g) Documentary

h) Film Noir

i) Clint Eastwood


P.S. Agree with RR about "Drama" and "Shawshank Redemption"
