Actually, you would be wrong. My number one kung fu film is “Young Master,” a film notoriously low on action and with a plot that leans more towards comic set-pieces than anything else.
Mate, I’m not being high brow. I’m giving you my opinion on the genre. What I believe. If you don’t agree, that’s fine. It’s not the end of the world.
I enjoy simplistic, action heavy kung fu films, sure. But I enjoy complex, drama heavy kung fu films too. Do I like one over the other? Yup. But at least I LIKE the other.
That’s my issue. You don’t. You ONLY want simplistic action heavy films. Again, that’s fine. I just think it’s limiting.
Yup, that fight is better than anything in those other films but that wasn’t my point. My point was that “Pedicab Driver” goes against your preferred formula and yet it’s still a very solid film. No?
Again, I’m not saying your opinion is wrong. I’m just saying that I don’t agree. Just as I don’t agree with those that watch kung fu films dubbed because “it’s hilarious.”
I’m just saying that I see more in the genre that novelty. I also want more. High brow has nothing to do with it. Personal preference does.
Dick jokes are funny but I don’t think Judd Apatow should direct every comedy. I like a mixed bag, you know?
Anyway, I apologise if I offended you. That wasn’t my intention. I just don’t like the genre I love being dumbed down whether it’s done by film makers or fellow fans.
