Who is the Master? it in you?

Ok, so I borrowed a couple of cliches and strung them together...LOL!!!

I certainly didn't think of myself as the Master but when I watched this movie as a kid---I got extra hyped up. I remember being in my martial arts instructors house asking him if he thought any of those moves were real and he said, "yeah, they're real...real Hollywood." I knew what he meant, but I wanted to think he was wrong so I learned this movie's moves so I could be the next martial arts movie star. It didn't work and I could only do some of them.

In case you forgot what the last scene was like, check it out right here.

What movie did you know all the words and the body movements to? This was but one of mine. What's yours?

Enjoy the clip and the trip down memory lane for the people in my age group. Smile!

Happy Saturday!!

Nice post! I'm like this about "Gone With The Wind," "Lady Sings The Blues," "Mahogany," "When Harry Met Sally," "Swingers," "Pulp Fiction," "Something's Gotta Give," "Now, Voyager"...a bunch.

I'm a movie junkie in the worst and best way. Um, but I suspect you already know this.

Oh yeah, and "All About Eve"!!!

Hey! You've got the glow! hehehe

Maaan..this is one of my favorite movies. But I have to admit, it wasn't because of the martial arts moves (cool as they were). It was because I thought Tymak was HOOOOOOT!

Movie I know all the words & moves to...SCHOOL DAZE! DATS MY SH*T! Especially the homecoming scene...I'm Jane singing lead..."I don't wanna be alone toniiiight...aahhh hhhaa"...slow side step across the stage....hehehe.

Then I was actually in the AUC the following year it came out. Went to school & lived that experience for 3 years That's not just a brings back memories!

I'll holla. I'm going to pop in the VHS now...

Excellent post, homie!

Q: if you were in hip hop biz--would you rather be the artist or the producer?

CreoleInDC said...

Producer. The creative genius is always BEHIND the camera. The person in front is just the puppet. :)
