Speaking of Ramen, did anyone see Kung Fu Hustle yet?

I saw it on Sunday, planning on seeing it again tomorrow. Great movie.

A bunch of my friends went to see it while I was at work or something. I hadn't heard anything about it before that. They said it was good. What's it about, generally speaking?

Subtitled, silly kung fu movie with a little love story somewhere in there.

Very creative fighting themes, I thought, alot of things you don't usually see.

(My favorite part is right at the beginning, with a bag guy dancing with his shotgun after he shoots this one person.)

GO SEE IT.

Sin City was awesome (saw it twice) and I want to (and will) go see Kung Fu Hussel.

Your description of "Kung Fu Hustle" reminds me of "Kung Pow"

Haha, me and this friend of mine know so many quotes from that movie.

"Do you know where i could find some silver, metal pyramids roughly and inch and a half in diameter?"

"Right here in my hand."

Not the funniest quote of the movie but it was the first that came to mind.

Man. I remember sitting down to watch the moving thinking it was going to be utterly lame. And it really was, except I laughed my ass off, died, and then went to heaven.

"What do you get when you cross an owl with a bungee chord? My ass. Nyah, haha, haha, haha, ENOUGH."

Yeah, I can't remember any quotes. I just remember laughing. I should rent that movie again.

I saw like 4 minutes of that movie and didn't really enjoy it.

I was worried Kung Fu Hussel would be just like it so I was skeptical about seeing it, buy my brother and friend said it was nothing like Kung Pow or whatever it's called and that it was really good.

Oh, Kung Pow definitely had its annoying moments, but I laughed for all the other parts. Now I really want to see Kung Fu Hustle.

I saw Kung Pow back when it came out. It was alright. Meh.

Kung Fu Hustle was practically made entirely by Stephen Chow, wrote and directed by him and such. He's also the main character. Most people don't know who Stephen Chow is, but reguardless he is a god of a film maker in China. Trust me, this is nothing like whatever Kung Pow was about. Although it is a good comedy, it does well as an actual kung fu movie, and in some scenes maintains its ability to be a love story. I don't think anyone will be dissapointed by this one.

(Secretly: The part where he gets pee'd on was alittle wierd, esspecially when they showed it again)

My brother wants me to see Kung Fu Hustle so he made me watch Shaolin Soccer yesterday as a prerequisite (for some reason).

Shaolin Soccer? Is it anywhere near as good as it sounds?

It's...well, it's worth watching.

He wants you to see it on account that they're both made by the same director. Or something. And it was funny in some parts. I cracked up when he called her ET...

He's been in a few movies.

(Also, he made some)

I'm not sure if someone was lost in the subtitle translation, or if in the original language (whichever one it is, as "Chinese" isn't really a language) they were really so clearly defined as the "Evil Team".

I also found it funny that they thought "American drugs" gave them superpowers. Seriously, drugged up Americans have small penes and hang around their porch laughing at everyday things.

I think that all depends on the drug, really.

AND, 'Chinese' is just an easy way to refer to the laguages spoken in China. Even Chinese people claim they speak Chinese.

You people better have seen Ong Bak, that movie was the best cheesey, stunt focused kung-fu flick made in a long time.
So very cheesey.
