  Zu Chongzhi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zu Chongzhi (祖冲之, pinyin Zǔ Chōngzhī, Wade-Giles Tsu Ch'ung-chih) (429-500) was a Chinese mathematician and astronomer during the Song and Qi Dynasties (of the Southern Dynasties).
To flee from the ravages of war, Zu Chongzhi's grandfather Zu Chang moved from Hebei, in north China, to south of the Yangtze River, as part of the massive population movement during the Eastern Jin Dynasty.
Zu Chang at one point held the position of "Minister of Great Works" (Dàjiàngqīn) within the Song Dynasty (420-479) and was in charge of government construction projects.

 Zu_Chongzhi   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Zu family handed their mathematical and astronomical skills down from father to son and, indeed, this was one of the main ways that such skills were transmitted.
Zu, however, had an opponent at the court as far as his calendar was concerned.
Zu's calculations of the length of the year were well within the range that allowed him to differentiate between the tropical and sidereal year.

 SoundStage! Equipment Review - Zu Cable Druid Loudspeakers (9/2002)
Zu Cable turned to their own Wax speaker cable for interface with the amplifier, and the company’s B3 connection scheme is a very new wrinkle as it utilizes the unique locking Neutrik connector.
Zu Cable included with the speakers a pair of Wax cables terminated with spade lugs on one end and the BC3 interface on the other ($650 for a 10' pair).
Zu Cable makes much of the Druid’s dynamics, and this aspect of the speaker’s sound is something to behold.

 Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain (1983)
Ti Ming Chi (Yuen Biao) is a young Zu warrior, who becomes disaffected with the futile fighting of the different Zu factions.
Made in 1983, ZU is the brainchild, or I should say, the unbridled frenzied freak of a child of Tsui Hark's demented cinematic vision.
For fans of Brigitte Lin, ZU is a must-see, for it is one of the rare instances, where the great actress appears wholly female.

 [KFCC] Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain Review
In addition to its great strategic value many myth and legends were born in the valley and peaks around Zu, a runaway soldier gets lost and by accidentally encounters a legendary swordsmen.
Zu is a very important movie in the Fantasy Kung Fu genre, because of this movie and its success it gave the chance for other movies in the genre to be made.
Zu in itself is a good movie and a classic but its far from being the best in the genre a lot of progress has been made since then.

 Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Zu is widely noted as Tsui Hark's first major film and one of the first modern Hong Kong movies to garner international intention (Evil Dead director Sam Raimi has noted in interviews that Zu was a major influence on his work).
Zu especially stands out in the world of Hong Kong films, where most characters are composed of shades of gray.
Note: after the HK premiere of Zu, Tsui found that the script was changed without his permission and omitted some 50 shots he originally intended.

 Zu Warriors   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The film is a bit aged in that the special effects seem cheesy compared to what is done now, but the imagination and story still make it special.
Yuen Biao is a common foot soldier who becomes disgusted with an endless war between two factions from Zu (watch for his "fight" with Sammo Hung) and so jumps over a cliff to find refuge and peace.
Zu could have been a much better film.

 [KFCC] Legend of Zu Review
Poetic and beautiful in creation, Zu carries the burden of having a never ending war rage along her steeps and hills and among her clouds.
If anything, "The Legend of Zu" is an updated version of "Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain." Almost twenty years later does Hark revisit his masterpiece reinventing everything known before into a more precise world filled with colorful landscapes and even more intriguing characters.
Just like the original, "Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain," breaking all the rules and giving us a spectacle, transcending the mere genre of a fantasy film, "The Legend of Zu" will perhaps be considered twenty years from now, one of the most impressive and grand films of its time.

 The Legend of Zu (2001)
Review: In 1983, Tsui Hark wrote and directed Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain, an unrestrained effort of visually stunning proportions that revolutionized fantasy in Hong Kong film, a genre that had gone out of fashion years before.
Unfortunately for Western audiences, this film assumes the viewer is familiar with Chinese mythology and the series of written stories on which this film was based, dispensing with explanations after a short introduction.
Sammo Hung is likewise in a throwaway role who, sort of reprises his role in Zu: Warriors as the white-bearded sage.

Alfred, Prince zu Windischgrätz (grandson of the Windischgrätz who seized Prague in 1848), sought to win the support of parliament by forming a cabinet in which the clerical conservatives, the Poles, and the German liberals were represented.
A general disgust with conservative domestic policies, an urge for more freedoms and greater popular participation in government, rising nationalism, social problems brought on by the Industrial Revolution, and increasing hunger caused by harvest failures in the mid-1840s all contributed to growing unrest, which the Habsburg...

 Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain (1983)
In 2001, Tsui Hark essentially remade this film into Legend of Zu, employing the latest digital effects although it failed to improve on the original.
The draw of really good kung fu movies are the richly devious villains that milk our loathing and admiration for their skills.
But in the case of Zu, the antagonist is evil incarnate which fuels the wars of man, a concept that works well in literature but rarely translates well on screen.
