movies of 2009
Siu lam juk kau, or Shaolin Soccer

One of the guys at work loaned me the DVD of this, after a discussion of martial arts movies, and me telling him how bonkersly wondeful Kung Fu Hustle is. Both films star Steven Chow, who is ace!

IMDb's summary of Shaolin Soccer:
A young Shaolin follower reunites with his discouraged brothers to form a soccer team using their martial art skills to their advantage.

They're forgetting the laughs, the singing and the love story.

And Team Evil!


This film is a riot. If you like daft martial arts movies, check it out. Then get Kung Fu Hustle.

I love Shaolin Soccer! Some day I need to actually see it in English.

I was presented with a Cantonese/English option, so plumped immediately for the Cantonese. The dubbing on films is usually terrible, and I'm a fast reader and *much* prefer to hear the actual actors speak.

Plus, I *love* listening to stuff in Foreign. :-)

For whatever reason, the subtitles and the dubbing didn't work on the version we were watching, so we watched it in Cantonese while two friends who had seen it before narrated for us.
