Wishing There Was More to Talk About

Blech. Have I mentioned that I hate waiting?

On the plus side, I was reminded once again of a movie that would be VERY HIGH on my top 10, Big Trouble in Little China. Wonderful quotes, and one of the first Kim Cattrall sightings (my best friend in highschool had a BIG Kim Cattrall thing).

Egg Shen: Can see things no one else can see. Do things no one else can do.
Jack Burton: Real things?
Egg Shen: As real as Lo Pan!
Jack Burton: Hey, what more can a guy ask for?
Egg Shen: Oh, a six-demon bag!
Jack Burton: Terrific, a six-demon bag. Sensational. What's in it, Egg?
Egg Shen: Wind, fire, all that kind of thing!

Jack Burton: That is not water.
Egg Shen: Black blood of the Earth.
Jack Burton: Whatcha mean? Oil?
Egg Shen: I mean, black blood of the Earth.

Jack Burton: When some wild 8 foot tall maniac grabs your neck, backs the back of your favorite head against a bar room wall and looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if you've paid your dues, well you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye and you remember what old Jack Burton always does at a time like that. Have you paid your dues Jack? Yes sir, The check is in the mail"

You don't get dialog like that anymore...

Got the Spec-Ed DVD if anyone feels so inclined to refresh themselves with unadulterated, pure, B-Grade John Carpenter entertainment. Pay special attention to John Carpenter's end title song he sang himself, and how Hollywood Kung-Fu scenes were before Jackie and The Matrix showed us all the tricks of Hong Kong cinema.

But I couldn't look past the green-eyed Asian (Mao-Yin?) girl to join your fixation on Kim C. :)

Not my fixation, Sean Burke's. Bring the DVD to soccer on thursday and I'll bring your jerseys.
