Kung Fu Hustle

That just has to be the weirdest movie i have ever seen (saw it with preeti, prashanth and iswar of evam)!! Seriously. If you ever wanna see a "comic book + cartoon + video games + circus + Kung Fu + fantasy" movie....this has got to be the movie. I enjoyed it to the core. Some cool special effects, fast kung fu moves, lots of clowning around, a little of "indian" type masala here and there and you have a great 2 hrs of entertainment served on a plate.
I am thinking of leaving StudentConcepts in the able hands of students and take up a 5-year diploma or something in Kung fu in the Shaolin temples of China. Iam serious.
