First of all... THE DUBBING. Jackie Chan talking with a goofy london accent. "awroight, granfauthur"
It was good to see the teacher from Drunken Master make an appearance as the creepy coffin dealer. The repetition of characters was neat too. It's obviously Jackie's lil world. Ironhead is in this one as well as Drunken Master. And last night I was thinking Bear was a repetition, but it wasn't Bear it was GORILLA (played by the very scary Bolo Yeung, he of the bouncy chest muscles).
If you have no idea what the hell I'm talking about, you need to watch more Kung Fu, dammit.
The bit of dubbing that just DID IT for me. After they've been the first guy, the bouncer for the brothel... the swordsman in white steps out of the school and asks which one of them just beat the guy.
His voice makes Jeremy Irons sound butch.
He makes the guys from Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert come off like the cast of the Full Monty.
Granted, the actor was a young pretty boy weilding a sword, but it wasn't a FLAMING sword.
He literally *lisped*
I laughed, I teared up, I rewound it about 30 times.
and ya know.. the synopsis blurbs on the front page of imdb.
If it's there, I'll read it unless I'm being ever vigilant. I just read the synopsis thing for Igby Goes Down, a movie I wanted to see anyway... now I'm sort of annoyed at myself.
I need to pick up a check today. It's nearly *cold* down here today and I absolutely love that. Probablem is, all my wintery clothes are packed away somewhere and the new sweater thing I bought the other day needs to be washed and dried once before it'll fit right.
I got undressed for the shower the other day and ended up taking pictures of my hip from above. Just for me and my edification. The conclusion was that, if nothing else, I've got some damned nice hips.
