8/27    funny review of new jet li movie
        Problem No. 1: Not enough people get spin-kicked in the head.
        Next to Li's character, Matt Damon in "The Bourne Ultimatum" looks
        like he's remaking "My Dinner With Andre."
        \_ I love this quote: "Advisory: This film contains nudity, adult
           language and violence. There's also a San Francisco police detective
           who lives with his family on a big plot of land, giving the false
           illusion of affordable Bay Area housing for the middle class."
           \_ ... or a corrupted bribe-taking cop. :-)
              \_ Way to give up a plot point, although it doesn't matter
                 in this case since no one should bother seeing this movie.
        \_ Real review: plot twist should have been a lot more interesting
           but was ultimately a failure due to weak/lack of character
5A\sdf     background, tremendous amount of film time spent building up
           background, tremendous amount of film time spent building up
           interest in a character who ultimately wasn't that important,
           fight scenes poorly choreographed and not that interesting.  C-
        \_ I don't know martial arts, but I once read an article in a martial
           arts magazine in a grocery store that said spin-kicking only looks
           good but is not an effective attack move, because the time between
           the start of the move and the impact is too long.  Any superior
           power of impact is offset by the time lag.
           \_ The difference between movie martial arts and real martial arts
              is that the former is all about "looking good." You get a free
              clue point. Spend it wisely.
           \_ I was KIDDING.  obviously Iam not going to 'go past
              the guard' of some dude in a bar fight.  he'll just stick
              a bottle in my eye and i'll die.  everyone knows real martial
              arts and stuff that looks pretty in movies are 2 different
              things.  this does not disprove the writer's assertion
              that Jet Li's new movie could use a few more spinkicks.

8/26    HUMAN WEAPON is totally awesome
        \_ I like the slow-mo CGI models so you can really see what's going
           on.  Nice touch.
           \_ I am totally going to go past the guard and rotate his
              shoulder throw down and punch him in the throat the next
              barfight i get into.
              \_ Worked for me, hope it works out for you, too.  I also watch
                 Dogfights and Ice Road Truckers which means I can now fly a
                 fighter from any era and drive an over loaded 18 wheeler over
                 32" of ice at 40 below.  Ok, no, wait, I can't.  It is just
                 TV and fun to watch, just like HW.
        \_ Seconded. The eskrima episode broke my brane.
