when we moved to portland, i was thrilled to discover that a theater here has a monthly kung fu night. since i was really young, i've loved kung fu movies. they were a regular part of my saturday ritual for years.
i love the bad dubbing and ridiculous costumes. the overwrought acting and the eyebrows. kung fu movies take eyebrows to a whole new level. but really, i love the kung fu itself - the training sequences, the fights... all of it.
so, almost every month since we've been here we've gone to the holly wood theater for kung fu theater. our favorite so far was a movie from a few months ago that included this completely awesome scene:
this week it was a double feature and it was fantastic. the first movie starred a very young jackie chan. the second was something i'd never heard of and it was just crazy kung fu fun.
check out how young jackie chan looks in the intro to the movie:
be like water, friends. be like water.
