Rob, does the film have it's own 70's kung-fu-esk score or is it littered with rap/hip-hop throughout?

 I had no idea the director's name was pronounced "Rizza" until this week.  I thought all along it was "R-Z-A".  

Hey Pat, I'd like to buy a vowel, please!

 Then jackwagon, you must not be familiar with the Wu... Wu-Tang that is #betterrecognize

Liked the preview - probably check this out at matinee tomorrow

 I saw it last night. It wasn't that bad. A decent popcorn flick but nothing amazing.  I have a lot of respect for RZA and the rest of the Wu-Tang Clan and wanted to support his first film.

aegrant,

Yes, my whiteness has definitely kept me under a rock when it comes to stuff like Wu Tang Clan.  One of my buddies said a long time ago that if I ever became a rapper, my name would be "2Whyte".

 Not a fan of Kung Fu.  Bewildered by QT low brow obsession.  I always thought he would be the herald for the crime genre.  Oh well, got three good flicks out of the fellow.  His productions are even less impressive.

Saw this tonight and was very disapointed. The martial arts was sub-par. It's fairly obvious Corey Yuen wasn't given enough time for the proper choreographing due to the hectic shooting schedule. The original cut was over 4 hours long so alot of what would constitue a plot was left on the editing room floor. Also this wasn't a QT production he simply lent his name to the film for marketing purposes. I'd give this movie a C minus. Wait for dvd.

 InnerSanctum, QT's low brown obsession is probably a product of nostalgia for his youth.  I'm a few years younger than him and I find myself looking back fondly on all sorts of the more rough hewn pop culture stuff from the 1970's.  I think the reason for throwing in ding and scratches in the film and misspellings is a rebellion (conscious or otherwise) against the fact that, thanks to technological advances, even the relatively cheap stuff today looks slick.
