Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble in Little China ★★★★★

John Carpenter is like catnip for that kind of 1980s-obsessed cinephile. You know the ones. The ones who champion genre movies the most, thinks CGI ruined filmmaking, and LOVES R-rated violence.

I don't mean that to be insulting, just a funny observation of a certain type I've seen around the internet since the 2000s. I can imagine them also feeling frustrated at younger generations not "getting" movies like this, since "you had to be there at the right age man!"

But even though I didn't grow up in the 80s, that doesn't mean I can't appreciate and love a film like Big Trouble in Little China, which kicks ASS!
