3 Thumbs Up

movies 2Well so much for latest releases. I went and rented a couple older movies, covered the last couple decades…

Untouchables (1987). A Classic. Pretty much anything with Robert De Niro in my book is worth watching at least three times. I love a good gangster movie, plus it doesn’t hurt to have such an incredible cast: Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Charles Martin Smith, and Andy Garcia.

Jet Li’s Fearless (2006). I love me a good kung fu movie, especially when Jet Li makes an appearance. If I wasn’t a pastor, I think I’d like to be a kung fu master. This one has all the trimmings of a great fung fu movie, fights with all kinds of crazy Chinese weapons, (check out this list of 100 weapons) hand to hand, and while there’s no “Crouching Tiger” flying, there are some very cool moves. Surprisingly, there is a very good story line “This film tells the story of Chinese Martial Arts Master Huo Yuanjia (1869-1910). Huo Yuanjia was the founder and spiritual guru of the Jin Wu Sports Federation“. Check out this quote:

Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself makes you fearless. – Lao Tzu

An American Tale (1991). Alright I know most of you remember this one, you cried. And I know you remember “Somewhere Out There” sung by James Ingram and Linda Ronstadt. We got this one for Miles as a “feel good” movie. He’s been watching too much Sonic X and Power Rangers lately, we wanted to soften him up a little.

    dude, we just watched American Tale with our girls (7 and 2) for the first time this weekend as well. That was one of my fav. movies when i was kid. Most of my “fav movies as a kid” turned out to be really cheesey when i show them to my daughters but this one is still classic…

    and Untouchables is overrated.
