Fast Sell:

It’s Raiders Of The Lost Ark Jackie Chan-style, with a dash of Bollywood, as the unstoppable film legend hunts for treasure in this flat-out fun, all-action, globe-trotting comedy caper.

Synopsis:

World-renowned archaeology professor Jack and his
team are on a grand quest to locate a lost ancient
Indian treasure, when they are ambushed by a team of mercenaries and left for dead. Using his vast knowledge of history and kung fu, Jack leads his team on a race around the world to beat the mercenaries to the treasure, and to save an ancient culture.

We like it because:

Move over Kung Fu Panda, it’s time for KUNG FU YOGA! Don’t worry, it’s not some kind of new-fangled exercise fad, but irrepressible martial arts superstar Jackie Chan’s latest, that sees him reuniting with Supercop and Rumble

In The Bronx director Stanley Tong, for this all out action caper, featuring superb fight scenes, motorcycle chases, ice caves, hidden treasures and a Bollywood-style set piece finale. As the Los Angeles Times says, ‘good luck trying to stop that goofy smile from spreading across your face’.

KUNG FU YOGA is family friendly fun, a mix of Bollywood exoticism and action comedy antics, showcasing veteran movie legend Chan’s incredible martial arts skills and impeccable comic timing. Filmed in China, Dubai, India and Iceland, this is a must for fans of the National Treasure films and Chan’s Around the World In 80 Days and Shanghai Knights.

“A family-friendly reminder that Master Chan still has a trick or two up his sleeve” Screen Anarchy

“As the leading man, Chan keeps the ball rolling with an assortment of neat acrobatic tricks and martial arts sparring” Variety

Refusing to go he gets tempted by the smell of the barbeque and heads to the barbeque. The barbeque has an alternative motive to announce Ned is leaving his job to open a Left-Handed Shop.

Marge also becomes concerned the Bart is watching too much television but ends up seeing an advert to learn karate, this gives Homer an excuse to go to the mall to check on the store which isn’t going well.

2017 Watched List – Part 14

2017 Movie Watched List

Movie Watched list are always interesting to read to see what order people watch films in, over the past two years I have started doing watched lists with two different styles to talk about the over 1000 movies I had seen. This year I decided to mix it up once more. This time I will be listing the films in 10 like before and then picking just my favourites on a couple of subject’s I am picking favourites over best because sometimes the best films are difficult re-watches which is why I like the term favourite.

Here is 131 – 140

1.    The Great Wall

2.    Beauty and the Beast 2017

3.    Backdraft

4.    The Appearing

5.    Groundhog Day

6.    Metropolis

7.    The Fast and the Furious

8.    2 Fast 2 Furious

9.    The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

10.  Fast & Furious

 

Favourite Film
Metropolis

I have picked this as my favourite because it is iconic, you can see how influential it was to modern cinema and is truly something special.

Worst Film
The Appearing

This was dull and awful throughout.

Favourite Character
Gaston – Beauty and the Beast

How fun can a villain be, well this is the most entertaining part of the film and a villain that is easily the highlight of the film.

Worst Character
Matt Damon – The Great Wall

This character was so plain and averagely boring for a leading man in an action film I can’t even remember his name.

Star Performance
Luke Evans – Beauty and the Beast

To steal the show it always hard but to be a villain against a Disney Princess is all the harder, this is his best performance of his career to date.

Any other question you would like to know about the selection feel free to leave a comment and I will answer or maybe even add to future Watched Lists.
