鄭秀文其實可以好犀利


並非要說鄭秀文的唱功有多厲害,或是跳舞有多好看。所謂的犀利,是她下了決定的事,她就會堅持朝著目標去做到最好。

最近一次被紀錄的帶病演唱是填詞人黃偉文的作品展,她盡最大努力唱完了三首歌,當中包括蕩氣迴腸的《如何掉眼淚》,聽得出不是平時的水準,但還可以接受。今天的《Touch Mi 2 鄭秀文世界巡迴演唱會》,相信她的病情比那次更為嚴重。開場大概是音樂太強勁,加上底聲較重和快歌比較易處理,並未察覺到不妥,但唱罷《煞科》,一開口說話大家就知道情況不妙,接下來唱《親密關係》時大家更知道這並非只是打一、兩個噴嚏的傷風感冒。

以住鄭秀文有一股天后的霸氣,偶爾唱錯歌詞,或是唱得不好時,你都不會在她臉上找到尷尬的表情,但在這次演唱會上,這股天后的霸氣偷偷溜走了。她在台上頻頻搖頭,皺著眉流著淚,臉上是「完蛋了」的表情。她很難過,我們很痛心。已分不清楚哪一把是她的聲音,哪一把是和音,哪一把是現場觀眾幫忙的聲音。

《Touch Mi 2》屬「Touch Mi」系列的最終站,除了新衣服外,過去兩年在其他地方的演出都沒有很大的改動,但在這次香港的最終站卻改頭換面,加入了新歌《犀利》、《Fabulous》(我討厭陳詠謙的歌詞),以及一些歌迷們很想聽的side tracks,包括從來沒有在演唱會唱過的《最後一次》和《你愛我愛不起》,很久沒有唱的《如何掉眼淚》和《愛的輓歌》等等。單看曲目就知道下了不少心思,雖然病菌令她未能唱好這些令人驚喜的歌曲,但她仍拚了老命嘗試唱好每一個字,眼見她如此努力,真的又感動又痛心,但誰又可以在喉嚨發炎時唱好《薩拉熱窩的羅密歐與茱麗葉》呢...

病情如此嚴重,大概都曾經糾纏在取消與硬著頭皮繼續這條選擇題之中。最後,她用意志和毅力完成了第一場。女人有時真的很飄忽,過往有些時候,她堅持不唱就不會唱,只顧跳舞完全甩掉歌詞,她不要做的話誰都管不了;今天她堅持要完成演出,就真的毫不留力認認真真的去做。

相信在最尾一部份唱《不要驚動愛情》時的一句「對不起」,比今晚任何一首慘情歌叫人心酸。看得出她已用盡全力去做到她今天能力範圍以內的水準,這份誠意已值回票價。希望鄭天后明天一覺醒來狀態大勇,能順利地完成餘下七場演唱會。

2015年度最愛電影排行榜

上年睇過乜:
2014年度最愛電影排行榜 上半場 / 下半場


喺Facebook充斥住一大堆以「今年真係發生咗好多事」開頭,「新一年一定會過得更好!」作結(其實啲人係咪用同一個template打架?)嘅2015年回顧嘅同時,我決定一路食朱古力豆,一路同大家回顧一下2015年睇過嘅十二套電影。

今年繼續用運氣買戲飛,打頭陣有糖衣陷阱《戀愛魔法》。我知道日劇又長氣又悶,禮拜六、日電視播日劇我都只係一路晾衫一路睇,但因為相葉雅紀,我第一次入戲院睇日本電影。結果當然係不堪設想,簡直係悶到想界櫈(但冇帶界刀),下次再有made in Japan嘅真係唔駛預我...

戀愛魔法
★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆

While We're Young (玩轉4字頭)
★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆

Tomorrowland (明日世界)
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

Poltergeist (鬼驅人)
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

正所謂希望越大,失望越大,《I Kissed a Girl》同《The Gift》係兩個好好嘅例子。前者講述靚仔基佬男主角喺準備同男朋友結婚之際,竟然同一個女人發生一夜情。天真嘅我以為個故事會高潮迭起,但故事平淡不特止,仲要有一個我都幾唔鍾意嘅結局,所以扣咗好多分。後者個trailer睇到我好心寒,香港未上我已經bookmark住,一定要去睇,點知成套戲氣氛唔夠懸疑兼唔夠驚嚇,同想像中出入都幾大。慶幸成個concept夠變態,有啲位雖然估到下一步會發生咩事,但都不失心寒嘅感覺。

I Kissed a Girl (Toute Première Fois / 攣情告急)
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

The Gift (不能拆的禮密)
★★★★★★★☆☆☆

《Spy》好評如潮,但我覺得《Vacation》比《Spy》來得更輕鬆同贏得更多笑聲(我笑到拍手)。本以為《Vacation》會係一套類似賀歲片咁令人皮笑肉不笑嘅無聊戲,點知原來係一套more than「哈哈」兩聲嘅溫情片。係咸濕,但啲gag咸濕得嚟有質素,完場諗番起都仲會自己喺條街度笑;係玩屎,但核突得嚟又真係好好笑。我喺戲院睇咗一次,喺飛機睇咗一半(坐我前幾行個外國佬笑到郁晒),最後買埋DVD平安夜開P成班人笑第三次!

Spy (凸務Madam)
★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Vacation (親子樂膠遊)
★★★★★★★☆☆☆



A Royal Night Out (皇家公主出走記)
★★★★★★★☆☆☆

The End of the Tour (當旅程結束時)
★★★★★★★☆☆☆

《Kingsman: The Secret Service》同《The Walk》兩個故事非常緊湊,好有驚喜。我自己入場前都估唔到呢兩套戲會攞到我嘅八粒星!

Kingsman: The Secret Service (皇家特工:間諜密令)
★★★★★★★★☆☆

The Walk (命懸一線)
★★★★★★★★☆☆



最後想補充一句:香港地區嘅中文譯名已經進入無藥可救嘅地步,所以我先盡量避免喺文中使用中文譯名。

最遙遠的演唱會(下)

上集:最遙遠的演唱會(上)


去到2012年,多得Facebook,我知道Sergey Lazarev將會喺2013年3月舉行大型演唱會,知道嘅一刻我竟然嘗試經網上買飛!

但係手續好麻煩,我身在香港根本咩都做唔到。好感激我表弟幫我搵到朋友幫手買飛,造就咗我2013年嘅第一個莫斯科之旅。

上次探完路,今次可以大搖大擺咁喺2015年一個人第二次再去莫斯科欣賞偶像嘅演唱會,連Crocus City Hall嘅職員都一臉愕然,奇怪點解會有個外國人喺度。呢個特徵亦為我帶嚟特別嘅待遇-首先,門口賣紀念品個女仔好主動咁話我知應該由邊個入口入場;第二,個個職員都笑容滿面,我完全係有一種賓至如歸嘅感覺;最後就係個職員應該知我唔識睇張飛,唔知坐邊行,佢帶我帶到埋去位側邊!

《Talk to Me》帶畀我讀書嘅回憶,《Heartbeat》會令我諗起某個舊情人,《Take It Off》令我諗起上一次莫斯科之旅...演唱會非常精彩,即使有幾首我鍾意嘅英文歌都唱咗俄文版,但係聽住熟悉嘅旋律,一樣可以搵到共鳴,一樣可以好hyper,印象深刻到有幾首歌直到今日都仲喺我個腦入面loop緊。

能夠再次喺現場欣賞一個以往只能夠喺電腦螢幕睇嘅演出,喺一個距離自己住嘅地方十個鐘機程嘅國家聽番呢十幾年陪住自己嘅歌,呢種感覺非筆墨能夠形容。而作為全場唯一一個亞洲人(我相信我真係),個感覺其實都幾特別。

我可以而家訂定下次演唱會嘅飛嗎?

The Farthest Concert (Part 2)

Until 2012, thanks to Facebook, I knew that Sergey Lazarev was gonna held a concert in March 2013, at that time, I actually tried to but a ticket online!

But the procedure was really complicated, there's nothing I could do in Hong Kong. Really appreciate my cousin's help on finding his friend to buy a ticket for me, accomplishing my first trip to Moscow in 2013.

After last time's exploring, I could boldly go to Moscow to watch Sergey's concert this time in 2015, the staff in Crocus City was shocked, wondering why there was a foreigner there. And this characteristic brought me priviledges - Firstly, the lady selling souvenirs was telling me which enterence I should go even I didn't ask; secondly, it was a plesent experience that all staff was smiling at me all the time; and the last thing was that the staff must knew that I didn't know where my seat was, she walked me to my own seat!

“Talk to Me” brought back memories in school, “Heartbeat” made me think about my ex, “Take It Off” reminded me about my last trip there... The concert was awesome, even he sang some of my English favorites in Russian, with the familiar melodies, they are still touching and I still felt hyper listening to them, the concert was so impressive that some of the songs keep looping in my head until this minute after the concert.

It is hard to describe the feeling of watching a performance in real which I could only watch in front of the computer, and listening to songs that I have been listening in the past 10 years in a country with 10-hour flight. And the feeling of being the only Asian (I think I really was) in the concert hall is actually special.

Can I make an early reservation now for the next concert?

最遙遠的演唱會(上)


因為2004年暑假喺HMV買嘅一張唱片,今年我已經第二次踏足俄羅斯。

Smash!!係一隊俄羅斯組合,當年以「t.A.T.u.師弟」嘅名義嚟香港宣傳。我已經唔太記得點解當日會揀佢哋嘅唱片,只知道聽完之後就即刻畀其中一個成員Sergey Lazarev嘅聲線吸引住。後來Smash!!宣佈解散,Sergey開始獨立發展。而我今次去莫斯科睇嘅《Concert THE BEST》正正就係慶祝佢獨立發展十周年嘅演唱會。

講番十年前,Smash!!解散之後,俄羅斯嘅音樂似乎同香港完全絕緣。堅持買唱片嘅我後來經Amazon買到Sergey第一張個人大碟《Don’t be Fake》,之後就開始走火入魔,情歌正正就係需要呢一把咁磁性嘅聲線(加埋甜到漏嘅露齒笑容)去演繹先至打動到人!隨後嘅幾隻唱片都係喺網上面買,有時又會喺YouTube睇下佢嘅現場演出或者MV,呢個男人嘅音樂開始成為我生活嘅一部份。

嗰陣我時不時都會喺度諗,唔知我會唔會有機會去現場睇佢表演呢?我唔係嗰啲要握手,要抱抱,記得偶像咩血型嘅超級忠實歌迷,但能夠親身去感受現場嘅氣氛,或者真係我一直以來嘅願望。可惜,莫斯科嘅娛樂事業同香港根本扯唔上關係,偶像開演唱會唔會有人話畀我知,要買飛就更加係無從入手...

The Farthest Concert (Part 1)

Because of a CD I bought at HMV in 2004, this is my second time been to Russia.

Smash!! was a Russian band, they claimed themselves as “junior fellow of t.A.T.u.” when they came to Hong Kong promoting their album. I don't quite remember why I chose their album, I only know I am attracted by Sergey Lazarev's voice after listening to the album. Afterwards, Smash!! split up, Sergey then started his solo career. Concert THE BEST that I went to was actually a concert celebrating the 10th anniversary of his solo career.

Going back to 10 years ago, after the split up of Smash!!, Hong Kong seemed isolated from Russian music. Me, who is insisting buying CDs, bought Sergey's first album “Don't be Fake” through Amazon, after that, I am mad about him, we need such beautiful and touching voice (plus that sweetest smile showing his teeth) for love songs! I bought his other ablums online and sometimes I watched his performances and music videos on YouTube, this man's music became part of my life.

Sometimes I was thinking, would there be a chance for me to watch his performance in real? I am not the kind of fan that wants to shake hands, wants to hug or remembers the blood type of celebrities, but maybe it is true that watching Sergey's performance and experiencing its atmosphere in real is my dream. However, entertainment in Moscow is nothing related to Hong Kong, no one will notify me when Sergey is gonna hold a concert, and it is even harder to find somebody to get a single ticket for me...
