I have got to look into these movies before I watch them! Yet again, I had this one all wrong.
It is a must watch, honestly, it’s great… in a ridiculous, over the top, total nonsense kind of way. Very entertaining and funny. It’s almost like it’s taking the piss the entire way through.
Directed by John Carpenter (he’s a big deal, done lots of stuff, look him up) it has this ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ and ‘Ghostbusters’ kind of feel to it. Damsel in distress, cocky typical American guy and the weird old magic Asian just come together to make a fun movie with terribly awesome costume designs and one liners.
Here’s a spot of trivia for you gaming nerds:
Apparently Raidens’ (Mortal Kombat) appearance is taken from the lightning character in BTLC.. don’t hold me to that, it’s just what I’ve read.
WoW players may know what the Six Demon Bag is, a trinket with which the tooltip says “Blast enemies with the power of wind, fire, that kind of thing!”… a direct quote from one of the characters about his six demon bag.
So there you have it, fun for the whole family!! Get watching 🙂
