The Grandmaster (Movie)

Categories Entertainment, Personal

I thought I posted about this already, but it seems I haven’t yet. It’s nothing new, but I can’t wait for The Grandmaster to open in the US. Directed by Wong Kar Wai, starring Tony Leung, Zhang Ziyi, and Cung Le.

Here’s the trailer and also an extremely interesting mini-documentary “The Road to The Grandmaster” (both Chinese only). Wow, the director thought about making this film back in 1996. Such a long journey (like Lincoln). Was fun to watch Tony Leung practice.

All this time, the spotlight has been on Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li and his beautiful moves. Ten years ago, nobody was talking about anything REMOTELY related 詠春.

I need to do a marathon of all the Ip Man movies to get myself ready. I just hope the action shots aren’t just a bunch of close-ups where you can’t really see what’s going on.

Talk to me, Goose.
