Because watching this gave me a better appreciation for Jackie Chan and his films:

Probably the greatest dick joke told on television.

this is my personal fav fight of all time btw. This is Implacable Man done right. Not some big slow clunky mofo. Guy is as fast as Jet Li despite being so much bigger.
Also note how the tide only turns after he starts hitting the same place over and over.
Although the big guy still would have won I think had he not fallen into the old villain cliche of 'weapon escalation'
He didn't really need that sword.

I like this fight, simply because it's the only one in either Ip Man movie that ends in a draw.

Flash Point Market fight scene.
Has there ever been a more awesome suplex in a movie?

Post what you're reading/listening to.

Currently this is what I'm on. It's a well written book on the medical career of Thomas Mutter, a pioneer in plastic surgery as well as an early champion of the use of anesthetics.

I'm a sucker for medical stories.

I hear bad things about the earliest ones. Color of Magic et al. People who start with book 1 apparently are like "Bluh."

Truth.

Laurel K Hamilton pisses me off on several levels. She has insulted her fanbase once or twice, and pretty much committed several author sins either due to her ego or her laziness.

I started with Color of Magic so obviously I'm biased. But in retrospect they are the Discworld in its infancy.


The first few discworld books are Pratchett first developing the setting. But it sets the stage for the overall theme of the series as a whole, which is transition. The world of Discworld changes throughout the 40 books from a medieval fantasy world to one we'd recognize more as an industrial one, and it does so in a very short period of time. From Color of Magic to the latest one you're looking at a period of about 30-40 years.

So Color of Magic is the Discworld in the thick of medieval fantasy. Its very raw and is focused entirely on parodying a lot of fantasy tropes. Pratchett doesn't start hitting his stride until some say Small Gods, but I think we see the last of it in Guards! Guards!

Also unfortunately, Pratchett announced in 2008 that he was diagnosed with a rare form of early onset Alzheimer's. It begins to really show in his later books to the point that I felt Snuff (39) was a pretty bad book. I'm not even going to buy Raising Steam after reading some of the reviews.

So, I said I'd post my review of Off the Beaten Path. Here it is.

So, who's seen this movie, and what are your thoughts on it?
I was driven to laughing tears on the threesome the first time I watched it.
To me I hold this movie as one of my personal favourites, in that artsy/indie sort of category.
