Best Movie In A Long Time

OK, I don't care who you are or what you like...you simply MUST SEE Shaolin Soccer. Yes, the name sounds corny...and it is. Start with a kung-fu flick...now hold that thought. In your other hand, pick up any sports film...you know the type: the guy forms a team to try and take the championship, they do great because their style as a team wows everybody, and eventually they must go up against the evil team that has won ever since anyone can remember...the fight is hard, but in the end, they manage to pull off the greatest win of all time. OK, now, slap those two together, as hard as you can. Add in camera-work and choreography that come straight out of 'Crouching Tiger, HIdden Dragon' and 'The Matrix'. Just for kicks (as it were), give a lot of the 'special moves' that the soccer players pull off some effects on them, like some kind of live-action anime. Now, make the whole thing funny, and you're starting to get the idea.

Damn this flick rocked...I cannot begin to compliment it enough. Hell, the cinematography alone was worth it, and the beautifully overdone 'attacks' (burning soccer balls, whirlwinds, light trails, shaock waves) just added to the overall thing. PLease, PLEASE, PLEASE watch this movie.

Seriously, I'm begging. You won't be disappointed.
