I saw that movie in the theater (Kung-Fu Week at the Roxie movie theater in San Francisco) and yeah...they had a character that was very much a copycat of Jackie Chan. He was always drunk in the movie.


I saw it at the Kuo Hwa in San Gabriel. (Think near Pasadena for those not familiar with the region.) It was a great place that run big movie in both theaters. One for Mandarin and the other for Cantonese. Most of the time it was a different feature in each theater. Lots of really wild stuff but it went under after about five years.

My fondest memory was when they first opened they had 'Rumble in the Bronx' in the original that had just opened in Hong Kong a week earlier. My friend and I thought we were the only non-Asians there when I spotted one other guy. I didn't know him but had a suspicion and shouted out, "Hey, Andy!" Sure enough, it was the HK action moving loving reviewer from the LA Reader.

There was a two year period when we went there at least three times a month. Part of the ritual was going to one of the nearby chinese specialty supermarkets and buying snacks we couldn't identify until we actually ingested them.
If I thought I needed to get out in the sunshine I'd play Boktai.

And here I thought jokes were supposed to be funny. :-k

Is there some sort of running gag here, or are you just a total bitch?

No, I'm just a girl who doesn't take the shit that every other guy here seems to want to throw my direction, just because I happen to have two X chromosomes. That's all.

What is Jet Li gonna do about all the wires?!? Jackie Chan doesn't do wires....


I guess you haven'y see some of his new flicks like The Myth and New Police Story. Stunt wise there was plenty of wires but if your talkling about fighting, Li has always been about flashy moves while Chan bases all his moves on real fighting styles.

High Risk was a cool film (one of the few films that I wore out on vhs) that suprising as Wong Jing is a god awful director (even though I think the best parts fall on Corey Yuen's skills).

No, I'm just a girl who doesn't take the shit that every other guy here seems to want to throw my direction, just because I happen to have an extra X chromosome. That's all.

Just a helpful piece of advice: for future reference, you may just want to say "two X chromosomes."

"An extra X chromosome" makes it sound like you're claiming to be mentally retarded.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

Whoa now, fella...that wasn't meant as an insult to her, Google "extra x chromosome" and see what you get.

Fixed, I guess I'm the only one who doesn't fact check everything before I post it. :roll:

I'm still waiting on Nintendo to do an ingame conversation between Zelda and Link where he says that very line... well... if Link actually, you know, ever talked in a Zelda game.

Wasn't going for snark, at least not consciously.

Now Jackie needs to get another project going with Yuen Bao and Sammo Hung. THAT would be frickin' amazing.

You know what movie I actually liked? "The One." Especially the fight scene near the beginning where bad Jet Li takes out all of the guards.

They should make a movie like that.
