I was floating around on YouTube the other day, mostly stream-of-consciousness searching and viewing. I stumbled upon the scene below from The Karate Kid, arguably one of the finest movies ever made. (Move over Orson.) A tale of triumph in the face of overwhelming hardship. Well, maybe not “overwhelming.” But it’s still an awesome movie.
Of course, I couldn’t stop there. So I included the last scene from Blood Sport and a scene from The Transporter. One could never write a post about awesome fight scenes in movie history without including Van Damage. And Jason Statham? I just threw him in for good measure. Enjoy.
The power of the Bowie. What has Labrynith just taught us? That goblins ask a lot of damn questions and David Bowie should skip to the point. This is one of my favorite movies. It still gives me a good dose of the creeps (creepy in a good way though, not creepy-creepy like HBO’s Carnivale. Pause while we mourn the loss of Carnivale).
And I think I will forever be disturbed by David Bowie’s gray leggings and codpiece in this film.
I love when he throws the baby up in the air at the end.
I’m a little weirded out. I’m watching the Flipping Out reunion show and Jenni, Jeff Lewis’ loyal assistant, just rapped. Like on Miss Rap Surpreme except she’s not a rapper from the streets, she a personal assistant to a house flipper–a neurotic, arrogant, crazed house flipper. She just freestyled. I feel like I’ve entered an alternate universe. Here’s a clip from the first season of the show. It’s what got me hooked on Flipping Out.
