TuesdayIn a delicately orchestrated political maneuver, Dali Lama will visit Taiwan, to pray and bless the recent typhoon's victims.

It is the most expensive Asian-financed film to date and movie producers can stop worrying so much about not being profitable because of the illegal pirated DVD's. It also proved that Mainland Chinese are changing, more affluent and willing to pay...
