Returner * + Kung Fu Hustle * * *

Who? Themos, Dimitri, 0.5*Zanos
Where? Culver City

Returner is an incredible attempt to combine all sci-fi movies of the last 20 years into one Japanese film. The story is a combination of ET, Terminator, Alien, Independence Day, Matrix, War of the Worlds, and (yes!) Chicken Little. A young girl returns from he future to kill an alien that will cause a future war between aliens and human, while the alien wants just to go home, while the mother spacecrafts are hovering above the earth preparing the attack. Bahhhh.

Kung Fu Hustle is exactly what I expected having seen Shaolin Soccer. A lot of fun, and the battles get bigger and bigget towards the end. Way to go, Crow!
