Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble in Little China ★★★★½

Rollicking trucksploitation wuxia fantasy adventure: the movie.

So I'm still very sick, even foggier than when I last posted, and was so bad yesterday I couldn't even finish a movie. I think it's the flu (I've taken 2 covid tests now, both negative thankfully) and honestly this is the worst I've felt in years, at least since becoming a dad. It's crazy. Thankfully my four year old is being pretty gentle with me, requested ramen for dinner and just wants to watch some Voltron in a minute here and that's pretty cool. Anyway, that line at the top was saved in my notes app while watching Big Trouble in Little China and I think it sums up exactly why the movie rocks so hard. I really can only emphasize that this was somehow better than I'd been hyped to believe. I'm already a certified Carpenter nerd, so I figured I was going to like it. So many friends have exclaimed "I can't believe you haven't seen it dude" over the years. But still somehow it just all snaps together in such a tight, fun, wildly creative way that I was in awe by the end. Glad I just blind-bought the disc when I saw it on sale.

I hope to feel better soon and get back to movie watching and not feeling like my skeleton is trying to leap out of my body, but at least yesterday seems to have been the low-point! Also, thank you for all the kind messages on my last post, friends. It really means a lot, especially since I can't see anyone irl. I'm gonna chill with my son now. <3
