Review: The Man With The Iron Fist

On the hunt for a fabled treasure of gold, a band of warriors, assassins, and a rogue British soldier descend upon a village in feudal China, where a humble blacksmith looks to defend himself and his fellow villagers.

You have to love the excessiveness of this movie, its like one of those typical Kung Fu movies from the 80s but with a ridiculous character line up and the Quintin Tarantino flare. RZA from the Wu Tang Clan, is all over this movie, he one of the main characters, the director, the screenplay writer, and pretty much everything else in the movie. Overall, the movie is just a fun flick to see on the weekend. Lots of blood, decapitation, fun martial arts, subliminal dirty jokes, sarcastic humor, special effects, and a unique, urban take on the classic Kung Fu films we’ve learn to love over the years. This is not a movie you waste your time dissecting. You either love it or you hate. I took the movie for what it was and I loved every minute of it. It had everything an action flick should have, great action, great costumes, great weapons, solid plot and good actors. If you love martial arts movies then you have to watch this one, as usual its fun and over the top.

Quentin Tarantino Commercial in SoftBank Ads

I don’t know what to make of this ad, looks like some sort of dog speaker ad. Quentin Tarantino is talking in Japanese and listening to the commands of dog, with a white woman on the other end. I knew Japan had some crazy ads, but this one has Quentin Tarantino so it has to be product that people must have. Also there is a cool looking talking dog, I would mind having a dog like that.

Inglourious Basterds

In German-occupied France, Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema. Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as “The Basterds,” Raine’s squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reic

This is the new movie from Quentin Tarantino and I really can’t wait to see it. Looks like this movie is going to be funny and bloody, just the usually you expect from Tarantino. A bunch of Jewish soldiers going on a rampage in Germany and scaring the hell out of the German military.
