Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Ang Lee) ***1/2 - It's been a long while since I've seen this film. It looks awesome on Blu-Ray, must say.
It's the Holy Week so what better time to share in the suffering and death of Jesus Christ than to torture myself with dismally bad movies:
Date Movie (Aaron Seltzer) * -
This is said to be the best of their work. That's like saying it's the

Jennifer Coolidge who provides the only actual laugh in the entire film
with her Barbra Streisand-character impression. It's otherwise unfunny
Epic Movie (Jason Friedberg/Aaron Seltzer) 1/2 - Even more painful than Date Movie.

star (generous) film. It would be fun to see this with an audience, I
