    There are times when I wonder if you have any sense of humour by the way you write.

    You seem a likeable enough chap and I read your posts, but "never seen a good Asian movie" and "can't name a decent Asian actor" just seems to be too bloody stupid for a guy who is not that bloody stupid. Maybe I'm reading to much into it.

    Most movies really do blow. There are just too many variables involved in movies. Too many variables that can fail.

    Exactly. I'm beginning to think that why is a mentally challenged troll. It wouldn't even be funny in DT. Hero is a great movie, House of Flying Daggers is at least decent.

    Because you use GData, you need to remove &feature=youtube_gdata_player from your links. So instead of , you need to write .

    Then it works.

    PS: That movie sounds awesome.

    I've heard Kung Pow! is really funny from some people, but others have said it's really stupid humor. I usually don't like satires, so I'm not sure about it. Maybe I'll watch it sometime.

    That Mother movie looks like a pretty standard Hollywood thriller except with Asian actors and subtitles. So what's the point? There are still plenty of thrillers -- all probably better -- that I still haven't seen. Is there anything different about it, or does it warrant more approbation because it's foreign?

    I think it's a general problem that when I watch Asian movies they always feel like really cheap and fake imitations of Hollywood.

    Aren't they both martial arts movies? Isn't the movie you recommended also a martial arts movie?

    Also, the tagline 'A Tale of Beauty and Passion' seems pretty suspect for an Asian movie.
