    Anyone else notice Jackie Chan is rather kick arse?

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I've never really seen a Jackie Chan movie, but obviously know of him and have seen clips here and there - bloody hell, though! I guess they don't really bother about insurance on film productions over there, eh?

    That one of sliding down the slanted glass roof of that skyscraper? Yeesh!

    Police Story is epic!

    Obviously ideally watch it subtitled, and keep in mind the low(ish) budget and cultural differences in film making.

    But it's a work of art IMHO!
