Top Five Movies of Lucy Liu
Sometimes I would rather watch an awful movie than a good one. I don’t have to turn my brain on, I can just let mounds of crap wash over me, I can cringe a little, I can laugh a lot (assuming it isn’t a bad comedy because then there is no laughing at all) and I can blame myself for being masochistic. With a good movie, it engages me and I want to see whatever might happen next and how it happens and why. I can’t look away from a good movie. I want to absorb every moment of minutiae. With a bad movie, I can scream at the screen, laugh my head off, stick my head in a bucket of water or whatever, I won’t care if I miss something, and in some cases, I may even stave off insanity by doing so.
Which brings me to “Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever” starring Lucy Liu. It is the most reviewed movie ever to get a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. That means that 108 critics did not like it one bit. That intrigues me to no end. I will see it someday, oh yes I will. However, I know that not everyone shares my tastes, so instead of giving you that movie, here are five pretty darn good movies that star the delightful Lucy.
After watching this musical, I came to the realization that John C. Reilly could do anything. I’d seen him in “Magnolia,” “Boogie Nights,” “The Good Girl” and “Gangs of New York.” Add on top of that his performance as “Mr. Cellophane” and I’ll go see about any movie of his.
Trust me, at one time Jackie Chan had the ability to amaze me. (If you don’t believe me, check out “The Legend of Drunken Master.”) I’m still a big fan of Owen Wilson if for nothing else than his work with Wes Anderson. Add in Lucy and it’s a pretty cool mismatched buddy film.
Is Lucy’s big scene against the Bride in this part of the movie? No? That’s why it’s number 3 then, but well worth being on any list. I love me some Tarantino and yes, yes, a thousand times yes, I’m looking forward to “Django Unchained.”
Is Lucy’s big scene against the Bride in this part of the movie? Yes? That’s why it’s number 1. The stark white of the snow and Lucy’s gown make the scene stand apart in my memory from the others in the movie.
Agree? Disagree? Which movies would make your Lucy Liu top five?
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
