crouching tiger, hiding writer

Finally saw Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Good flick. By no means a grrrrrr-reat flick, but it held my attention in an acceptable manner. I must say that the fight scenes were beautifully done, and has a pleasing fluidity to them.. They lacked the obnoxious ostenacity of the average American fight scene… for some reason, the movie Blade strikes me as a perfect example. Fights that require no talent on the actors’ part, merely that they look big and rugged… and shout mindless taunts… and dammit, I just wrote myself into a corner.

I did something cool today but it was illegal and I’m not gonna tell you about it.
