Erin and Paul review two films about two very different kung fu masters and their rise to greatness. First: THE GRANDMASTER, the much-anticipated new drama from director Womg Kar-Wai, an impressionistic biography starring Tony Leung as the legendary martial artist and teacher Ip Man; then, KUNG FU PANDA, the 2008 computer-animated martial-arts comedy starring Jack Black as a food-loving, unathletic panda bear who undergoes a crash course in kung fu after being identified as the great warrior who is destined to defend his village from a vengeful leopard. A fighter plagued by heartsickness, or a fighter ruled by hunger: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on RIDDICK, GETAWAY, YOU'RE NEXT, THE HEAT, THE CANYONS, and PASSION.
