Things I Like: Around the World in 80 Days (2004 Film)

Around the World in 80 Days is not a movie I remember coming out around 2004. It’s one of several adaptations of the Jules Verne’s novel of the same name. The only person in the cast I seemed to care about was Jackie Chan, though I later saw Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mark Addy (who laterContinue reading “Things I Like: Around the World in 80 Days (2004 Film)”

Things I Like: Shanghai Knights (2003 Film)

I wasn’t terribly excited to see Shanghai Knights, but I figured I’d give it a try. I didn’t know much about the story except it being in England instead of the Old West.

Like his niece Jade who actually was a decent character. I really liked his crazy old uncle. So funny. Tohru wasContinue reading “Things I Like: Jackie Chan Adventures (TV Series)”

The Forbidden Kingdom (2008 Film) Review

I’ve never been into old Chinese kung-fu movies or films from China in general, but I have seen a select few ones. Such as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Hero. With neither of the films impressing me too much. I do like Jackie Chan and I have enjoyed most of the American films he’s joinedContinue reading “The Forbidden Kingdom (2008 Film) Review”
