    It's a low-budget Shaolin ripoff of Karate Kid, but IMO it's more entertaining than KK. It's one of those 'so bad it's good' types of movies (like all of those American Seasonal Film productions). ...

    It's actually quite funny, regarding Hellboy producer Christa Campbell's remarks. Since it's primarily Asian-Americans complaining about whitewashing a definitely Asian character, she's essentially...

    I'm not really a fan of the show. I've seen episodes here and there over the years, and always found Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park to be far more...

    I don't know about that, mickey. Hollywood is not alienating Asians in Asia by stereotyping and/or excluding Asian-American actors. Westerners tend to lump Asians and Asian-Americans together, when...
