Kung Faux

Just watched the latest in a series of exploitAsian films...the mummy curse of the dragon empereor

The movie, of course, was dumb but enjoyable...more interesting, though, was how Hollywood's current love affair with all things Eastern had even infiltrated their take on an Egyptian mythology.

The 70's had blaxploitation, and our counterpart in the ots is not Shaft but Dragonball Z and the Furious Five.

Watch for more white girls in kimonos and california surfers to weild bo staffs in the just-beginning-to-catch-a-ride-on-the-jade-dragon money train

Coming soon to a Mann Theatre near you
