Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble in Little China ★★★

Carpenter was pretty fun in the 80s. This was kind of bizarre, but entertaining from start to finish. It flirted between being a campy martial arts movie and being a parody of one. Some of the effects were impressive and others were total garbage, seemingly on purpose. Kurt Russell was hilarious as our surprisingly ineffective hero. I'd rather watch The Thing or Escape From New York, but this is still a great time.
