    The Legend of Drunken Master

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Our story begins with a Jade stamp. It may not be terribly unique, and it may not be terribly important, but it is a part of the people's culture. The adventures of the stamp take Wong through a tumultuous series of fights that put him in a state of humiliation. We seem to be following the plot of the original Drunken Master, but we aren't.

    "This is just one stamp, don't we have hundreds of these?" Wong Fei-hung asks Fu…

    The most pathetic, useless, irrelevant, pointless, worthless kind of cinema. This inbred capitalist motherfucker has the fucking confidence to release something starring his useless rump in it. For the uninitiated, this movie is like if Jeff Bezos put himself in a hundred million dollar blockbuster posing as a benevolent scientist who cared about the people of America. This guy, this discarded plastic doll looking, child's dismembered plaything looking ugly mug thought his face would be fine to put in a…

    Shoutout to Jordan Peele for somehow finding a title that will attract the most insufferably terrible jokes
