This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

The Legend of the Swordsman

I saw a fairly freaky Chinese fantasy movie, The Legend of the Swordsman, with Jet Li. It's one of those supernatural movies we've all come to know and love. You know the kind: people flying through the air, voice sorcery, phaser-type destruction via hand motion. As kung-fu fantasies go, this was probably one of the better ones. When you boil this thing down, it reduces to a guy(Jet Li) has the hots for a woman who used to be a man who magically transformed into a woman to confuse and confound his enemies, not to mention the viewers. Oh, and the newly-minted woman is out to conquer all of China. Figures. “What man would want to ?” Jet Li's character asks. Indeed. There's also revenge in this movie, and instructions on how to let it drive you completely insane.

Kiddo(actually, a girl): “I can't believe you left me down there!”
Ling(Jet Li): “Why? You know how to fly.”

Kung-fu dude, speaking of Kiddo: “Hey, she's actually starting to behave like a woman.”

Silly movie, but better than Kung Pow.

WTH? The two movies aren't even remotely comparable.

True Legend was good, KP was bad.
