    Agreed. She said it better than anybody else could have.

    As for QT, I still believe he is an excellent director. He makes good movies (well, most of them, anyway). Including Once Upon A Time in...

    Very true, Gene, I had heard of the Hwarang Warriors before.

    That said, today’s K-Pop groups are not a warrior society, and that feminine image does affect how Asian males are perceived by many...

    Yeah, Paper Tigers sounds like a good one to see.

    Nobody counts Dwayne Johnson as Asian, and I highly doubt that he himself does. Many Pacific Islanders I’ve seen addressing the issue seem...

    One of the BIGGEST sources of the emasculation of Asian men today actually comes from Asia. Look at the male K-Pop groups, as well as similar trends in other Asian countries (for one example, in...

    The funny thing about the onscreen Bruce Lee vs Cliff Booth fight is that IIRC, Mike Moh or someone else said that the fight was actually a draw. No it wasn’t. The Bruce Lee character was losing...

    I got to see this, and IMO the movie itself is good. Overall, QT did a good job capturing the spirit and feel of 1969 L.A. but IMO, you probably had to have been alive at that time to some degree,...

    Bruce Lee was an interesting person, no doubt. He was critical of karate tournaments, yet he attended a lot of them. He also said that he would NOT have wanted to face karate fighter/judoka Jim...

    I've been aware of the Gene LeBell/Bruce Lee story for years, and yes, I believe it. LeBell himself mentioned it, and I highly doubt he would lie about that. I have doubts that QT was aware of it,...

    I also read about Bruce Lee saying he could beat Muhammad Ali...then revealing that he was joking by saying (and I'm paraphrasing), "Of course I couldn't beat Muhammad Ali; look at his hands and look...

    Walter Chaw's article brings up some very thoughtful points, which I agree with.

    However, towards the end of it, he seems to be rationalizing, as I've seen a number of Asian-Americans do when it...

    I wouldn't be surprised if people in Wong Jack Man's lineage would be happy with seeing BL portrayed as a blowhard who gets humiliated. I can understand it, if that's how they feel.

    Still, I...

    Much of the stuff in QT's films is derived from Asian cinema; he even acts like he respects someone like Sonny Chiba. But by the way Asians are presented (or just spoken about) in his films, he's...

    Well, kinda. QT has a tendency to appropriate stuff. Recall that QT originally wanted to play the monk Pai Mei himself, before deciding on bringing in Gordon Liu. Which was the wise thing to do,...

    Yeah, I find that interesting, too, but not unexpected. Supposedly, BL is one of the many actors whose movies 'inspired' QT, but the very few Asian characters presented in QT movies have mostly been...

    I hope Tarantino gives the Bruce Lee character a bit of the depth of his actual personality, rather than making him a charicature of BL's movie characters. Which means havin him thumbing his nose,...
