|Armour of God: The predecessor to Operation Condor (not sequel, as American labelling would have us believe), this is essentially Indiana Chan, and probably my second favourite Chan movie.
|what is raven's favorite chan flick?|
|Drunken Master (not Legend Of).|
|that's a great one.|
an almost completly non-related question: have you seen ghost dog?
worth watching if you havent, its very well done.
|Mm, Ghost Dog was quite good. Bit slow for my taste. Bit serious. Nice ending, though.|
|was a tad slow, but intentionally. I appreciated how layed the film actually was, as every little scene had thoughtful significance.|
Its one of those great films that hacks away at our society, flawed only by the fact that it is too meaningful for the general public to digest.
Jarmusch has another great film, 'dead man' which is also a bit serious and a bit slow, but beautiful and quite good. Probably the most masterful piece of symbolism by an american director.
|I liked Dead Man better than Ghost Dog. Enough to buy it. Less serious, and more atmospheric than Ghost Dog.|
|hmm, for the sake of clarity, in my eariler comment 'layed' was in fact supposed to be 'layered'.|
