  1. Seemed like something out a movie, didn't it? When I read it, I thought to myself "Poison darts? Who does that?" But when you consider the person behind it, why not? It's more subtle than a knife or gun and easier to hide. I hope they get them both.... Laura

    New Year's Resolutions?

    I can sympathize with that...I have generalized anxiety, social phobia and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Debating about staying with my meds as I'm not sure how much it helps as opposed to harms. Stinks..... I've been overweight since I started with my employers more than three years ago. I'd like to lose weight and get down from 133 to 120....and get back into martial arts. Laura

    Train to Busan (2016) - Korean Zombie Movie!

    I found it a little hard to watch - doesn't seem well thought out enough and zombies don't fit what previous films have done...I'll pass. Laura
  6. I haven't watched his films in years...the fact that he doesn't bother to keep in shape is a reflection of the poor quality films he makes too. Laura

    Unpopular opinion thread

    I think Bruce Lee was a better fighter than an actor. Jackie Chan needs to retire. I've seen the same fight choreography in nearly all his films and I think he's out of ideas... Sammo is God... Brigitte Lin needs to come out of retirement, as does Ruby Wong (Where a Good Man Goes)....Carina Lau needs a kickass role because she's a kickass actress... Zhang Ziyi really stinks as an actor - and tired of directors using her over better actresses that can actually carry a role....Edit to add "Hero" was epic, I absolutely loved that film, especially the fight scene between Jet and Donnie. Laura
  13. As far as the entertainment community goes (and frankly in business as well), men prefer beauty over talent and the younger the better. Obviously that doesn't inspire a lot of bonding with women as it creates a cut throat environment when women work together. Maggie clearly has the talent...I always thought Zhang just had youth on her side. Her acting is absolutely wooden and I can honestly say the she ruins every film for me that she appears in.... Laura

    Piper (2015) - New Korean Horror

    I'd like to see it at Netflix or Amazon Prime. I think Amazon actually does a better job of adding Korean films...but both are slow at adding new titles. Laura
