Big Trouble In Little China

Quite simply one of the finest films in cinema history.

A lot of people don't "get it". It's supposed to be a campy comic book film. Carpenter himself, on the DVD commentary, says that there was supposed to be a sequel, but it never happened because 80's audiences didn't get the campiness, and therefore the studio axed the sequel. Not sure how I feel about that, as I think the film is perfect as a standalone, and I wouldn't want to see a sub-par sequel cheapen it (Hello, Matrix trilogy). But seeing Jack Burton (a personal hero) in action again WOULD be pretty outstanding.

Anyone else adore this film as much as I do?

(sorry there's no cut for all these videos. My html skillz don't allow me to do fancy things like that)
