David Lo Pan Style: Big Trouble in Little China meets PSY

As many of you know, I am of the opinion that John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China may well be the best film ever made.  Okay, that's an exaggeration, but you know the way that some Gen-Xers constantly reference Star Wars or Star Trek in conversation?  I'm that way with BTiLC.  I lost count of how many times I have watched the film a decade ago.

The film combines everything I love from Western genre film, Shaw Brothers over the top acting, and post-Tsui Hark Hong Kong cinematography and action.  In short, it is all things great about film that aren't in Singin' in the Rain.

BTiLC doesn't need a remake, but it does need more awesome fan creations like this.  If only Dennis Dun managed a cameo in the video.



If you don't like this video, you must be monumentally naive or already living in the Hell of Lacking a Sense of Style or Humor.  What can I say?  The Chinese have a lot of hells.

Love BTiLC such a cool movie. We use it as the example for people when trying to explain Shadowfist / Feng SHui RPG.

Grr! Can't see the video. Any chance you could drop a link up too so I can try and watch it elsewhere? I'm a huge fan, and as a kid used to watch it all the time. me and my friends would play act scenes from this film way more than we did Star Wars.

Video embed fixed. Whew.

It is the perfect example of Feng Shui as film.

This is the second greatest thing I've ever seen, with the actual movie being the first.

Indeed!

Watched this video so many times, actually better than the actual music video by Psy.

Also made me go out and buy BTiLC on bluray ^_^
