Dance you fat fuck. Dance!
Stars for the best scene from Shaolin Soccer in the pre-load.
is that the bus scene? If so it means I need to rent two movies.
No, the bus scene is not in the movie (although similar levels of "super sayan" soccer insanity are).
This is the scene: http://youtu.be/ua1tMm0K0W0
Cool! I really liked God of Cooking and Kung Fu Hustle. If I recall they tried to market it for American audiences with that World Cup Fever where we pretend we care about soccer for a month, and it didn't work. In and out of theatres, at least in my neck of the woods, in less than a week.
I didn't even know God Of Cookery existed. I know what I'm watching tonight.
God of Cookery is just good enough that people who get upset when _other_ people really like Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle can point to God of Cookery as their favourite Stephen Chow movie without having those people complain about it. It's A Fistful of Dollars to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly / Once Upon a Time in the West: an excellent movie in its own rights with a lot of the artist's distinct touches, but more a sign of things to come if you've already seen the masterpieces.
Shaolin Soccer isn't quite on the level of God of Cookery or the earlier Stephen Chow stuff but it's still really good. Make sure to get the original Chinese version, not the USA Mirimax release that's almost half an hour shorter.
The best Stephen Chow movie I've seen is A Chinese Odyssey Part 1 (Part 2 never worked for me, even though they were both shot simultaneously). I've heard God Of Gamblers is even better, though.
I just think the CGI got in the way in Shaolin Soccer. Slapstick and CGI are a poor mix. Everything else about it is great, though.

Haha you weren't joking!
It got voted down when I submitted it (frankly I'm glad I did since I don't really care for Seth Rogen and James Franco) but their new movie about assassinating Kim Jong Un is considered an act of war.
The sad part is, most N Koreans probably don't have internet access, or if they do it's limited, so they probably never would've known. It's like if Obama got angry about this:
It'd have more than 20,000 views, that's for sure (damn he looks a lot like Obama though!)
Goddamn, he really does. He's got moves, too. And the lady looks like Michelle. How the hell does this only have 20,000 views?
Never mind; I looked it up and apparently it got millions of views on Twitter by users in China, many of whom believed it to be the President himself.
I just googled "funny obama video" expecting to find some super-imposed shit show to use as an example, but this was the third one down. At first I didn't read the description and was like "holy shit that's amazing special effects!" before I saw the "Obama Impersonator" part.
I've been told I look like the guy from some band I've never heard of and Scott Baio and it's hard enough being chased around town by cougars yelling "Chotchie" 24/7.. I wonder what this guy's life is like.
Man, I don't feel your pain. If I had cougars chasing me, I'd be a very happy Old People indeed.
As it is, I went on a date in the spring with a chick I met on okcupid. She told me I look like "Brett Dennen", which sounds like a football player or maybe a mountaineer or one of the jock guys from Fox Business News. But oh, no. I googled the motherfucker and he's some little dude who looks like a grandmotherly lesbian (I am 6'1" and athletic, so I can only assume either I have a hideous, hideous face or that the chick is racist against gingers and thinks we all look alike). There was no second date.
Just avoid his haircut at all costs and you'll be fine.
Sound advice. I have a buzzcut, and I'm keeping it that way.
Brett fucking Dennen. Christ.

Given how many things North Korea considers an act of war, and given how their entire foreign policy consists of telling other countries that what they just is an act of war, North Korea's diplomatic relations with the rest of the world are eerily similar to the AI in Civilization V: Denounce everyone, declare war, do absolutely nothing for 50 turns, and refuse to accept peace unless you hand over New York City, 30 Gold per turn, and all your whales.
The comments, especially the top rated one.
If I were God King of North Korea this would be played at the beginning and end of my state TV broadcast day, and I would expect everyone to learn to dance like this so they can dance with me when in my presence.
Of course, I'd feed them too, so obviously I don't get North Korea.
I predict he's going to become acquainted with the term "Streisand Effect" real soon.
