"House of Flying Daggers"

I don't get Chinese cinema. Even when I like something, I don't necessarily understand it. The Missing Gun, for example. Anyway, House of Flying Daggers is a love story, not a war story, and there's next to no unarmed combat, and even less respect for the laws of physics. The girl's hot, but the guy looks way too Japanese to be working for the Chinese government in China in 829 without any kind of explanation.

Ah well, maybe Elektra will have some decent chick-fu. (An underdeveloped genre, just begging to be exploited.)

For a computer programmer, I have an strong dislike of wires and computer graphics.

In fight scenes, anyway.
