The Karate Dog

Posted by knobbygirl

So this isn't the long lost sequel to The Karate Kid movies?

Pat Morita taught his dog karate...but that's where the similarity ends. No Mr. Miyagi here, he's playing a Chinese dude named Chun Li. (Chun Li? Really???) Cho Cho the dog kicks a lot of ass via bad CGI, but it's more a Matrix rip-off than wax-on/wax-off. Also, the dog talks and his voice sounds a lot like Chevy Chase. It IS Chevy Chase. I guess this is the best he could do before Community brought him back to relevancy.

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist

Posted by knobbygirl

I've had that song "Black Betty" stuck in my head for weeks now.

Non sequitur - I know. But "Black Betty" plays a significant part in this film. I don't think I'll be able to hear "Black Betty" again without thinking of Master Betty - kind of like how every time I hear "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," I think of popcorn. Speaking of Master Betty, isn't that an awesome name for a villain?

Seed of Chucky

Posted by knobbygirl

As we were sitting in the dark, waiting for the previews to begin, I was put in the position of rationalizing why I felt it was necessary to go see Seed of Chucky on opening weekend. I tried to explain what a big deal it was - that it was like Lord of the Rings. My husband said that was the "most asinine thing I have ever heard you say." (Not as big an insult as you would think - he says that to me all the time. What can I say?

The Tuxedo

Posted by knobbygirl

Whose idea was it to match up Jackie Chan with one of the worst actresses to crawl out of the depths Fox's back lot? That individual needs to be dragged out into the street and shot, run over by a ice cream truck and then shot again.

The Matrix Reloaded

Posted by knobbygirl

Wow.

Usually, my first paragraph is much more clever than that, but I am a bit at a loss for words right now. Needless to say, I was more than adequately impressed by The Matrix Reloaded, as was most of the country this past weekend.
