You know, I always wondered when someone was going to use "bullet-time" technology for something really worthwhile.... But, until that happens, there's "Shaolin Soccer." Being in the U.S., this is the first I've heard of the movie, even though it's been available through Asian distributors for awhile now. I guess Miramax plans to release it in U.S. theaters (or at least to video stores) next spring. Stephen Chow(?) is a kung-fu comedy guy, and he wrote and stars in the movie. Pulled-off-the-street soccer players who learn the ancient ways and powers of the Shaolin monks/priests to defeat an evil team-owner and win a soccer championship. Plenty of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-type flying, soccer balls kicked so hard they develop flames behind them and create whirlwinds on the ground, etc. I just finished watching it without subtitles, and even not understanding half of what was going on it was still funny. The Bruce Lee-ish goalie is great stuff. Just thought I'd post a heads-up for anyone who likes this kind of off-the-wall stuff and hadn't heard of it before. It's definitely... different. And fun.
