    Most Canadian movie ever?

    Was gonna go 3.5 stars until that final sequence.

    The Buddhist Fist

    ★★★½

    Gets off to a pretty slow start, but once it gets going you got chopstick fight, chess fight, fortune teller fight, sleeping style vs drunken style, crazy hunchback poisoner joint-cracking... well ok, I don't really know what that last one is, but that's part of the fun.

    Return of the Jedi

    ★★★★½

    Deliberately pulpy, sometimes a bit goofy, but almost never cheesy. It's a fine balance, and one that allows the operatic stuff to work really well. That's really all the shading I need in my Star Wars.

    P.S. Dear Mr. Lucas, please remove Hayden Christensen and the Jar-Jars from the end of this movie at your earliest possible convenience. Thanks.

    A tedious family of wealthy idiots gets what is coming to it at the hands of a woman who isn't afraid to use her ankles to get what she wants.

    It's a little too stiff-necked and self-consciously archetypal for the melodrama to work in my eyes. It sort of works as a horror, with the femme fatale (vampire) exerting an pull over her victim so strong as to be inexplicable.

    And that's sort of a problem - we never really…
