Big Fun in "Little China"

The classic 80's flick "Big Trouble In Little China" returned to the big screen for one night only to celebrate its 25th anniversary at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood courtesy of the American Cinemateque. Despite having the seen the movie countless times over the years on DVD and originally in the cinema, it was great to relive the film once again in a theater atmosphere with lots of people. Plus the added bonus of having director John Carpenter speak following the film. Kurt Russell gives a great performance as Jack Burton, truck driver of the Pork Chop Express who gets in over his head in San Francisco's Chinatown where he encounters a whole lot of unexplainable phenomenon regarding Chinese lore and a crazy man named David Lo Pan. James Hong is excellent as Lo Pan and the supporting cast includes a young Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, Victor Wong, and Kate Burton. This movie did not succeed when it hit theaters, but it is a classic fun film that everyone should view.

My childhood...

My dad saw this movie in the theatres and loved it. He bought the movie and showed it to me when I was 7, since then it has grown to be my FAVORITIE movie. I can watch this movie on mute and say the lines exactly, thats how many times I've seen this film. The thing with this movie is that either you've seen it and you've loved it or you never heard of it. I find that people who get this film are really nice people. You can tell a person's sense of humor simply by asking then if they liked this movie. Hilarious lines such as: Jack: Hey Wang what's that say? (points to chinese letters) Wang: Hu mon sing, Hell of boiling oil... Jack: Your kidding... Wang: Yah I am it says keep out. I dont want to give anything away but please watch this movie it is greatest comedy action film I have ever seen. Please check this movie out you wont be disappointed.
