Chinese movies are good. Chinese movies with women are even better. Chinese movies with fighting are even better than better. And Chinese movies with women fighting are the best of all. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was amazing: the camera work, the wire work, the top-down shots of the fights, the costumes, the props, the plot. You name it, it's got it. Far and away my favorite movie of the year, hands down. Stop reading this site and go see it now! Really. (Oh, I forgot about Best in Show, which was also good, but still, this is certainly my second-favorite movie of the year, absolutely.)
And it reminds me, I'm going to learn how to fight so I can kick ass like the chicks did in CTHD. Here's an (old) taste of what I'm capable of. Be scared, be very very scared.
