Michael Jai White is such a badass in this. This is the story of an ex-con, who's also an expert martial artist, who engages in underground fighting so that he can fulfill his pledge to a dear friend. Basically, it's a modern day Lionheart. The martial arts choreography was great, and the fight scenes were a lot of fun, which is pretty much the entire point. There really isn't much more to the movie, good or bad.
Saw Prince of Persia yesterday w/my friends at the theater and I loved it! That movie is beastly. Disney never disappoints me. I think its a great movie though foreal. Gemma Arterton looked ridiculously hot in this movie. But its worth watching at least once in my opinion. I'll give it
Saw The Karate Kid (1984) last night since the remake is out and I haven't seen any of the old ones so I thought I'd go in order of watching them, and I gotta say, this movie is a classic for sure. Amazing movie! Mr. Miyagi is a monster! Nah but I loved it! I have to give it
That shit deserves a 0.5/10 at most. Terrible terrible movie.
havent seen it, but I loved that comic book as a kid.
As for movies, saw the miniseries Comanche Moon the other day (its a Lonesome Dove prequel). Love the book, the movie wasnt great. Steve Zahn did a passable Augustus McCrae and the chick frm freeks and geeks was pretty good, but they moved the story enough to lose some of the drama.
Still, a decent tv movie. Probably the worst of the 4 lonesome dove miniseries.
I saw a documentary early this morning on the Sundance Channel called Prodigal Sons. It was good, but some really awkward scenes that forced me to change the channel for a few minutes at a time.
The star is the writer and director and she [Kim] is returning home to Montana after a very long hiatus. She is a transgender female with a less than understanding older brother Marc, whom she hasn't talked to in over a decade. He's adopted and apparently the bastard son of Orson Welles. That's no joke. And that whole part is a bit weird and confusing.
Anyways, the documentary was supposed to be mainly about her returning to her hometown for her high school reunion, but it ended up being primarily about her brother Marc and his head injury, which he sustained in a car accident when he was about 25. They removed part of his brain and because of that, he suffers from extreme mood swings which he cannot control.
I won't detail the whole film, but it was great. 74% It was a bit shorter than I would have liked.
