For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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

Steve Mellow went to Thailand and he left me (Murin) his amazing collection of his DVDs and put me in charge of the Film Society. We will be holding regular meetings twice a month (on Wednesdays) at Grandpa's to watch movies. Everyone is invited to give his proposition. What movie would you like to show? Why? Which movie would you like to see? Don't worry we will see them all ;)

This is fun for all Star Wars fans

10 films that influenced Star Wars

Tim Robey charts 10 films that influenced George Lucas's space saga

1. Flash Gordon (1936)

George Lucas’s first inkling wasn’t a world of his own devising, but a remake. Alex Raymond’s comic-strip hero first appeared in print in 1934, and within a couple of years had been filmed as a serial, starring the Olympic swimming champion Buster Crabbe (who also played Buck Rogers). Lucas couldn’t get the rights, and so the project transmogrified into Star Wars. Add a dose of the writer and theorist Joseph Campbell (especially his 1949 work The Hero with a Thousand Faces) and a new modern myth was created, but many elements of the Flash Gordon serials remained: Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back, soft wipes between scenes, the conflict between rebels and imperial forces, manta-ray-shaped craft, and even the legendary title crawl. Lucas has acknowledged that the characters in Star Wars are more “tributes” than original creations........
