[trailer] Tai Chi Zero

Looks funny and terrible all at the same time.

Is the movie supposed to be funny? I'm not sure if that trailer being so self-aware is hurting or helping.

I'm sold.

"I wish there were a kung fu version of the Scott Pilgrim movie."

Oh hell yes!

2004 says "H-WHAT? H-WHAT? YEAH! OKAAAY!"

Is this by the guy that did Kung Fu Hustle? Certainly seems like his style of film. I never knew there was hard style Tai Chi I'm sold.

No, but I can totally see where you're coming from.

No, I was making a joke--Kung Fu Hustle already was Scott Pilgrim.

Trailer at hand, the only thing I didn't like was the VO, which I imagine won't be a problem with the film itself.

That trailer is the most tryhard, contrived, awful thing.

Tryhard 2: Tryharder

Sorry.

This reminds me that I need to watch Kung Fu Hustle again.

And shaolin soccer.

I might need to watch one of them this evening.

It's worth watching the original cut from the DVD. The US release of Shaolin Soccer (dunno about Kung Fu Hustle) was edited horribly.

I actually liked the US cut better.

That being said, I don't see the terrible in that trailer. Looks awesome!

Bolo Yeung, the big body builder looking dude in couple of Bruce Lee movies and in Bloodsport i think did a form of Tai Chi.

I actually used to be really into Tai Chi, which is why I made the joke. Still am, I suppose, though I won't have much time to practice again until the kids are a bit older. Since having them, any attempt to do the routine has meant kids holding my legs within about 30 seconds of starting. The best film about Tai Chi I've ever seen is called Pushing Hands, but it's really more of a drama than a martial arts film.

thats a a damn good film! But i'm sucker for just about anything along those lines.

So, i just saw this trailer

And noticed that it's coming to DVD in a few days.
Did anyone actually see it in theaters? Did it ever go to theaters?
was it as entertaining as the trailer?

Anyways, a few more days.

That looks bonkers.

I think I may have found my new calling in life as a result of that. Re-scoring classic 70s kung-fu films with dubstep soundtracks.

Kung fu -- check
Robots -- check
Explosions -- check

What about oogaba?

The robots have boobs that explode when punched.
