Big Trouble in Little China
Hilarious. Quirky. And a very fun movie from start to finish.
Yet another superb collaboration between John Carpenter and Kurt Russell, this actually makes good use of special-effects for the time it was released.
A very good lead performance by Kurt Russell who is underrated, and some funny moments.
"It's Jack Burton...ME!"
During a section in the film, Kurt Russell actually got really sick, but had to keep on acting through it. You can see how in that part, he doesn't look as comfortable and at ease as he does in the other parts of the movie
Planet Terror, No Country for Old Men, Milk, Avengers Infinit War, W
They don't make them like thsi anymore. From his look, mannerism and gruff voice, he just has that presence that you only got from back in the 80's.
Would have made a really good older Batman, and has managed to carve out a niche for himself in a different film world that don't really cast his kind in leading roles anymore.
Always a very good addition to a cast.
His father is the very famous James Brolin who was the leading man, heart-throb back in the day.
Beowulf, Back to the Future 1 and 2, Forrest Gump
A very underrated and talented Director, who has made some technical advancements in the films he's made which has gone unnoticed.
Apart from being both a very good writer and director, in Forest Gump, Back to the Future and Beowulf, he is using special effects that were advanced for their time, and does so very well.
Rarely makes a complete dud, and is always a sure hand with his movies.
Had the difficult task of having to let go off of Eric Stolz once they began shooting Back to the Future, realizing he wasn't right for the role. As hard as it was, it turned out to be the right decision.
You shouldn't judge a book by its trailer...except you should, because that is exactly what a trailer is supposed to do. But what we were given for this movie in terms of the promotional stuff, is not what the actual film turned out to be.
Very well directed, a good story, and strong performances by the two leads. Our friend Daniel Kaluuya really does not miss. He has been quality in every film that I have seen him in. And he again does a great job in giving us the humanity and depth of his character in this.
Really recommend this, and the film feels so timely with what is going on in America right now especially. All in all, a surprise as I did not think the film would be what it was based on the trailer that we were given of it. Which again shows how important it is that your promotional and marketing team knows exactly what product they are trying to sell.
