For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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:)

Comedy - My Cousin Vinny,

Sci-Fi - Fantastic Planet (Animation),

Musical - The Wizard Of Oz (The most referenced movie ever!)

Romantic Comedy - Victor/Victoria (not sure if the Chinese crowd will like it, very touchy subject)

Sports - Slapshot

Drama - 12 Angry Men


Sorry if there are repeats, I didn't read all the other posts

For western/sci-fi, I just watched Cowboys & Aliens 7.5 out of 10

I love My cousin Vinny!

Enjoyed Moneyball recently.

Another genre- Superhero! The Avengers is pretty awesome and the Dark Knight too.
