Ok, I've waited long enough, I've got to find out how much love is out there for my favourite ever 80's flick, the brilliant BTILC...
Jack Burton is still the best and funniest hero in movie history. I grew up with this movie and still can't get enough. It is so awesome. I'd love to hear wht you guys think of it!!!

"You know what ole Jack Burton always says at a time like this?"

Who?

"Big Trouble in Little China" is a quirky 80's classic. My fav 80's Kurt Russell character will always be Snake Plissken, but ole Jack Burton might just be able to give him a lightening bolt or two on occasion.

Just remember what ole Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ole storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

Alas no, but I still hold out hope for one. Never happen, although they may do a remake which would be awful. There is no improving on this movie. And yeah, have a look at it, if you like what you see, you gimme a holler honey!! [Wink]

All right...I just started a new list of "must see" movies, and it is at the top. I am interested in it, because of all the Love being displayed here for it. Plus...it's not like I find it hard to look at Kurt Russell for any length of time.

Jack...welcome to the Rewind....I am not 100% sure, but you might be the first lad from Ireland that posted much on here. [Wink]

Hmmm...I never thought that about the Irish, I always think happy thoughts...like 4 leaf clovers, Shamrock Shakes, and Irish Spring soap.
All good stuff.

It's good, mindless fun. The ending was kind of lame though. The whole Jack/Kim Catrall thing turned into a joke.

I will do that. I am excited to have a new movie to look forward to watching.

I have been making a new list tonight....I also just bought Fandango-I had never heard of it either.

It is really cool when you find movies that you didn't know were out there.

I love that I haven't seen every movie of the 80's, and that there are so many still left out there to discover. That is what is amazing to me about the 80's, is how much stuff happened in 10 years.

I didn't even know Kim Catrall was in it.

It's like the other night when I saw Christine on TV , Kelly Preston was in that movie...she looked like she had just walked off the set of Mischief and walked in to Christine by accident, it was so weird to see her.

I know exactly what you mean!! I too have dozens of 80's movies I've yet to see, and working my way through them is so much fun!! Although this movie is my favourite, I'm so nervous now, what if you don't like it??
