    Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing?

    ★★

    Ya hate to be disappointed by a film that you went in thinking you had reasonable expectations set for.

    Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing? is one of those "big" films that leaves behind a legacy that's more ephemeral than anything else as time goes by. I hesitate to call it an "awards bait" film because its acclaim stems from it being a cultural milestone; amongst other reasons, this was the first film to include the Taiwanese Hokkien dialect ever…

    Enter the Dragon

    ★★★★½

    Finally checked a big one off the list, and in cinemas too. Enter the Dragon sits at this really unique crossroads in relationship to martial arts cinema and Asian-American cinema, being leagues ahead of anything in terms from Hollywood at the time. I'd hesitate to say that it stands shoulder-to-shoulder among what Hong Kong was doing by themselves—the non-fighting scenes were a mix of serviceable and dry as hell, Jim Kelly was cool tho—but for the most part, the action scenes were truly visceral when they needed to be, so I can't knock it too much.
