Sideways and Kung Fu Hustle

Sideways has Lowell from Wings and that other guy who's usually the annoying hostage who gets shot. Well... at least in the Negotiator. This movie has some amusingly funny moments but it's really a very soul searchingly depressing movie that shines some hope on all those severely depressed people who think that their lives are absolutely horrible. But like all other movies like this, it's all about "taking that first step." Whatever that means. It also makes me want to go out and buy some Pinot.

Stephen Chow made a movie almost exactly like all his other movies except with better special effects. There's a really funny Bruce Lee movie reference that makes you want to see Chuck Norris get his ass kicked. Again.
