I’m very glad IP-man was a succes in the states. Now because of it western theaters are slowly getting another wave of martial art films. I’m not sure why westerners go through phases were they will see films like this and then dissappear forgeting about them. Anyway, Yuen-woo-ping the master behind Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, the Matrix,and Kill Bill who hasn’t done much in while as released his new movie True Legend. Jump on the bandwagon and try to support these movies if your a fan now, because you never when Hollywood forgets about them again.


Coming attractions!

Capcom’s CGI moive Resident Evil: Degeneration was everything the live actions should have been. It was another example of how good things can be if it stays true to the source materiel.

Ninja Assassin was a successful attempt to combine the west and the east in a martial art movie. This movie looks like it favors more on the east side where it counts, the visual flair. This film is giving you something rarely seen, samurai and cowboys.

There is nothing else like the movie Tron. It has a visual appeal that looks groundbreaking even for today. Tron is finally getting a sequel. I for one don’t really think this movie needed to be made and since one of the things that made Tron special was the computer world and with this looking just like a typical action flick I’m a little worried. Hey, its freaking Tron so we should all give it a chance anyway right?

A remake to not just one of the best westerns ever , but its one of the best movies in any genre. This is looking like a great update. Jeff Bridges has big shoes filling in the role for the great John Wayne.

More Jack Blackness

Yeah I know me and maybe three other people in the US are looking forward to this, but the first Ultraman Zero movie was a hugely successful in Japan and pretty damn good to boot so I’m pumped that there is a sequel coming out. Don’t Judge Me! <_>

Jackie Chan can’t do some of the things he used to, but he still has that comic touch. His latest Hong Kong film (which are normally always good) has been out in the UK and should be coming over to the U.S. soon

Lots of crazy things happen in this trailer. Not sure whats going on, but it looks stylish and its done by the director who did Dawn of the Dead, 300, and watchmen so expectations are high.

A modern update to the Shakespeare play Tempest is looking good too. Even if that idiot Russell Brand is in it.

I don’t really like horror or scary movies, but I love psychological thrillers. Black Swan looks like it might get too weird, but it has promise. This film already has huge buzz around it and if the film the wrestler couldn’t get director Darren Aronofsky more recognition hopefully this film will.

I just read that Jackie Chan is going to make a third armor of the Gods movie, known as operations condor to the west. The Operation Condor movies are Jackie Chan’s take on the James Bond films. Its Chan at his best. So after leaving you with a lot to chew on I leave you with this.

Oh! Scott Pilgrim vs the world is out on DVD and Blu ray now so you have no excuse! Rent or pick up a copy!

The master behind ong-bak and chocolate has recently released a new film. I known he always had a nack for finding great young talent, but this is pretty surprising. His new film showcases the talents of five really really young action stars. I will be shocked if this comes over state side with all the child labor laws. Sure, there was three ninja’s kick back movies, but that was obviously fake kung fu, not real action fighting like theses kids. Still pretty amazing stuff kids or not.

Now showing!

I think I’m going to start posting about movies that come out that might be under most people’s radar that I think deserve special attention. I can’t think of any better two movies to start with. One a intelligent independent sci-fi. The other a rare, sure to be a classic, 2-D animation. So please give these films a shot, otherwise don’t complain that Hollywood never makes original movies anymore.

From the acclaimed animation master Miyazaki, Ponyo is a stylish story of a young fish princess who falls in love with a young boy. Think little mermaid, but in the master hands of the man of Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. With America only making cg movies now, Japan is the only place now for classic 2-D animation. In most ways this makes it easier to tell more creative and more mature stories. Even if you don’t even now what anime means this is a must see. Be prepared for it to blow anything the states have done over a decade out of the water.

District 9 is from first time director Neill Blomkamp. Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson was so impressed by his short films that he decided to produce one of them into a feature length film. This movie is filled with great cinematography and just oozes style. District 9 was screened at comic con with huge positive reaction. Not only does it have out of this world special effects with a tight budget, but it has a deep thought provoking undertone. This movie is more Blade Runner than Transformers.
