for you because i feel like you’d care imdb.com/title/t…
A new Peter Hyams/JCVD jam? You bet I care.
Time for two whole days off.
"Maybe try the B-side, m’lord."
So this movie has a dream sequence where a snake priestess and another woman wrestle each other in flight attendant uniforms while Hugh Grant simulates an erection with a green marker,
In other words, it’s goofy as shit but fun as hell.
I live for Ken Russell hallucination sequences.
Which cut did you watch?
riseofthecommonwoodpile replied to your post “So in short, The Grandmaster whooped my ass. And my heart.”
how do you feel about people considering it a lesser film of his (also have you seen Ip Man?)
This was my fourth movie of his I’ve seen (after Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love and Ashes of Time), so I’m not an expert or anything, but I call bullshit. The Grandmaster fits nicely alongside the movies of his that I’ve seen as far as visual motifs and mood are concerned. My one gripe would be that he tends to break up the fights a bit too much, but that serves a very specific aesthetic purpose: to place special attention on the precision and grace in the fighting, vs. straight-up athleticism/kineticism. But that fits Wong’s mood-vs.-structure aesthetic as a whole anyways, so I can’t really complain.
So yeah, I call bullshit.
And I’ve had Ip Man in my queue forever now.
