Big Trouble In Little China or the film that Confuses Kurt Russell

One of my absolutely favorite films is Big Trouble in Little China, a bit of fantasy cross-cultural weirdness that starred Kurt Russell way back when. Sure, I know that by today’s standards it’s a bit on the culturally insensitive side and that despite any dreams one might have from one’s youth “Chinese girls don’t come with green eyes” . . . well, unless they’re wearing contact lenses, that is.

It’s still a fun film and it’s bizarre vision of Asian beliefs and monsters is well worth the looksee even today (that Eye of the Beholder in a dungeon scene will warm the nerdish D&D playing heart of a fair number of folks today as it did back then).

Here’s a FUN with a capital FUN video that takes all the moments from the film in which Kurt Russell’s manly macho action hero Jack Burton is confused or in the dark . . . which, honestly, is actually most of the movie.

Seriously, this makes me want to break out my copy of the movie and watch it again . . . and again . . . and again.

    This is one of my favorites too! Strange that you bring it up now as I just watched it again a couple of days ago. First time my wife had seen it. 🙂
