You see, prior to Twilight, I had a thing for Kung Fu movies. And not exactly Bruce Lee kung-fu movies but only because the overdubs made me insane and slightly stabby. After awhile, I couldn't even watch the action because I was too focused on the fact that their lips weren't moving in sync with what they were saying.
Once Upon a Time in China, The Seven Samurai, Legend of the Drunken Master, Akira and even Crouching Tiger, Pooping Dragon - I love 'em all. Oh, can't forget Kill Bill, either. Both volumes.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is shaping up to look pretty fucking amazing. There is martial arts, awesome looking special effects and all around potential for death and destruction.
Plus, it has the extra added bonus of Jackson Rathbone as Sokka, a member of the Water Tribe. Even better, he's not wearing a ridiculous fugly wig AND he doesn't look like he needs to take a shit. Badly.
Here's the trailer, in case you missed it.[note from STY - had to replace this since the original one was pulled from YouTube]
The Last Airbender is actually a movie based on a television show on Nickelodeon a while back. I know, I know - I'm waaaay to old to be watching a cartoon series. Bite me. It wouldn't be the first time I went gaga over something totally age inappropriate, after all.
Now, M. Night Shamamamamlam's last few movies have been utterly disappointing but I'm holding out that he can pull this one off. Fingers crossed.
Since this is Super Bowl Sunday and I couldn't be bothered to muster up a whit of excitement about it, I was just going to say fuck it to the whole thing and go read some Twilight porn or something.
Until I found this, which is supposed to air tonight during the game:
Obsessed with Twilight? Think you're too old for this? You've come to the right place!
We are a bunch of over-thirty *cough*andforty*cough* chicks who never really meant to fall in love with Twilight... but somehow we did. Hard. Inexplicably, we've still got a lot to say about it. And other stuff. Join us!
