I consider myself somewhat of a movie snob as I have previously mentioned in numerous posts.
Tuesday I went and bought the Shall We Dance DVD as I said I was going to, but while John and I were at Best Buy we spotted the “bargain bin” DVD’s for 5.99. I’m such a sucker for bargains.
I have this love and hate relationship with Jackie Chan movies. Or basically I have come to the conclusion that he’s sold out (or has gotten too old to be able to make good movies).
I think it all spurs back to his roots of doing good, clean kung-fu movies. While inherently funny due to the slapstick comedy that is worked into the fight scenes. I do not see him as a “comedian” in the sense of movies such as Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Shanghai Noon and Knights, or even Around the World in 80 days.
Can the American public recognize him for his work in movies such as Police Story 1, 2, Rumble in the Bronx, Project A, First Strike, Who Am I?, Mr. Nice Guy, and who can’t love a movie that is called
HALF A LOAF OF KUNG FU.
So people be willing to allow your horizons to expand and watch some good Jackie Chan movies that you may not have heard of. Especially if you agree with the statement “I love Kung Fu“
