Delicious!Have yet to see an Asian film artiste who didn't lose their potency or relevance crossing over State-Side. (Ok, I'll grant Ang Lee as the notable exception to this).It took Red Cliff to restore John Woo's cred and The Warlords to wipe the shitty memory of seeing Jet Li getting ass-whupped by Brendan Fraser.And was that Chow Yuen Fatt in the masterful Dragonball:Evolution?Ever since he got his goofy charm obliterated on screen by genuine Celluloid Poison Chris Tucker, Jackie's lost his allure for me and I choose to remember him via nostalgic memories of Snake In The Eagle's Shadow and Drunken Master on crappy video bootlegs.Won't be watching his Miyagi-lite turn as mentor to the Spawn of Smith.
Just wanted to say that Sex in the City II and Prince of Persia seems like the perfect double bill. Something for both genders to be talked down to.
It must be said: Congrats to Walter for landing his acid-bath review at No. 7 among the "9 Most Scathing Critical Responses to Sex and the City 2" over at Movieline. Big ups!
