How NOT to be a man

jackiechan compiled - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 23:08

Alex Jones is currently challenging Piers Morgan to a boxing match and says he wants to box the hell out of him: http://www.infowars.com/alex-jones-re-issues-challenge-to-box-coward-piers-morgan/ , stating : “You know, Morgan, that I will literally beat the hell out of you!”

 

The reason the 9/11 truth movement is not getting anywhere is because it is dominated by testosterone fuelled raving morons like Alex Jones – that when push comes to shove, turn to cowardly chickens just to do the bidding of the ‘powers that be’.  Alex Jones is clearly just a thug who even threatens to box women, but he only ever does a good job of acting like a raving lunatic clown to discredit the REAL truth movement.  He shills about practically everything – particularly concerning 9/11 truth, and labels people who believe in fake planes on 9/11 as being mental.  So goodbye Alex Jones – as you’ve just killed any little credibility that you ever had, and proved once again to everyone how NOT to be a man, so you can ditch this stupid advert for a start:

The Spy Next Door

jackiechan compiled - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 12:12

I might class this as a science fiction movie because it has a little bit of science and a whole lot of fiction – and because any excuse is good enough to watch and write about Jackie Chan.

The Spy Next Door looks like the kind of movie that would have been intended as a vehicle for Vin Diesel or Arnie back in the day, in which case it would not have been worth a second glance. Tough guy+cute kids=yawnfest.

spy chan pan

Jackie Chan – I can’t cook noodles in these!

But that it’s a Jackie Chan vehicle makes it a lot more interesting. For one thing, Chan is not your stereotypical tough guy. As Chris Tucker repeatedly reminded him in the Rush Hour movies, he’s not tall, or muscle bound. As Chan said himself, he’s cute, like Snoopy. So right there this movie breaks the mold. He looks comfortably nerdish in his Clark Kent disguise, and still moves like a whip when he becomes the master spy.

The next surprise is the kids – usually so unbearable so as to make you throw your popcorn at the screen, this bunch is surprisingly likeable. Sure, they make their stepfather-to-be’s life hell, but there’s a lot more character development than is usual, and these kids are actually lifelike. Madeleine Carroll, Will Shadley and cute little Alina Foley give great performances. You still want to throttle them occasionally, but no more than your own kids.

Wisely, the fiance/mother (Amber Valetta) is swept out of sight on a family mission early in the piece, thereby setting up Jackie just to interact with the kids. Yes, it’s a cliché, but this time it really works. Jackie uses his spy tools to help him cope and there are genuinely funny scenes of him struggling with oatmeal, sitting through an episode of bedtime sugar rush, and dealing with an unwanted boyfriend (who turns out to be far more than he seems).

Another pleasant surprise is Billy Ray Cyrus as Chan’s sidekick. It’s good to see the achey breaky guy making such strides in his acting career. Miley, take a bow, you showed us that your dad is a very good comedy actor.

Billy Ray – not bad, dad

The villains are in a class by themselves. Anyone who doesn’t crack up at the arch villain Poldark’s parade of inappropriate outfits must be made of stone. Magnus Scheving is perfect in the role. Kids will recognise the Icelandic actor as Sportacus in Lazy Town, but adults will be thrilled with his comedic talent in this movie.

spy magnus

 

“How quickly can you get me orange jumpsuit?”

Katherine Boecher as Creel, a Russian terrorist in a fearsome blonde wig is side splitting. But one of the funniest moments may be unintentional, when the CIA mole tells Jackie he has to kill the family because “they’ve seen too much.” What? The whole neighbourhood saw it!

The Chan charm is legendary but doesn’t always work well in a standard Hollywood movie – The Tuxedo is a case in point. However, when it does work, as in The Spy Next Door and Rush Hour, it is irresistible.

JJCC early debut?

jackiechan compiled - Fri, 03/21/2014 - 21:11

JJCC, pronounced Double JC, is a new group that is set to debut any day now. Well they actually debuted on M! Countdown. So i guess they debuted early. I thought they were debuting on Sunday. I guess not. They are managed by Jackie Chan the action star. Who doesn’t love Jackie Chan? I haven’t yet put a names to the faces but one of the teaser video’s does put a name to the face for you. But the members are SimBa, E.co, EDDY, San-Cheong and Prince Mak. The group has released two “official” teasers, a random video and now here is their debut stage. The first teaser video only shows four members because Prince Mak was i guess sick or hurt so he was not able to shoot the teaser and i also wanna say the music video. But he will be with them for their debut performance. The second teaser video is the one that puts a name with the faces. The third video is just a random video. it shows the members in what i would assume is Jackie Chan’s private jet looking comfortable wearing normal clothes and no makeup. Then the last video is their debut stage on M! Countdown. I thought they were making their debut on Inkigayo this coming sunday. Their debut song is called “At First”.

My reaction to their debut is they have nice voices. I know that the vocals sound different in the music video/album and during live performances. Well i can;t wait to see the music video.

Woah woah woah hold up. I thought JJCC was supposed to debut on the 24th? Did I get wrong information or did they just brought up the date? Anyway, I’m not complaining! They had their debut stage on M!Countdown with At First and was smooth as fuck! I still haven’t matched the names to faces. I only know Simba because I fell in love when I heard that deep voice at 1:02 and did some research. They also released their first MV teaser.
I really need to keep up.

Jackie Chan produced K-pop group set to debut this month

jackiechan compiled - Thu, 03/20/2014 - 08:07

RocketNews 24:

 

 

Earlier this year international action star Jackie Chan had been making some unusual appearances in the South Korean media. First, on the red carpet for Police Story 2013 he blurted out “I’m half Korean!” Although it was later revealed to be a metaphorical sentiment lost in translation, the statement ruffled some feathers back in China.

Later that month, Chan appeared on a South Korean variety show where he confessed to having a love affair with a Korean woman for eight years in his younger days of working as a stuntman. So why is Jackie Chan showing so much love for Korea these days?

It was revealed on 10 March that over the past few years Jackie Chan and associates have been hard at work constructing this new group. Chan himself is said to have been very hands-on in all aspects from member selection, training, and album production.

A spokesperson from the upcoming group revealed, “The work towards a formal debut is complete. All the passion and sweat that has been put in over the years has gone into making this a debut that will leave a strong impression in the minds of fans.”

The group’s name is JJCC and is said to consist of five men in their 20s, four of them South Korean and one Chinese. All men are over 180cm (5’11”).

In recent years K-pop has been aggressively targeting an international audience resulting in growing success for the genre. This is clearly a potentially lucrative investment for the 56-year-old martial artist who’s got to be looking for paydays that no longer involve rolling down mountains in a giant plastic ball or getting run over by a hovercraft.

We’ll have to wait and see if Chan’s latest venture pays off when JJCC hits the scene later this month.

Divergent's Maggie Q letter perfect as passive action star With Video

jackiechan compiled - Wed, 03/19/2014 - 22:06

LOS ANGELES — Initially, Maggie Q seems pleasant and playful as she takes her seat in a Beverly Hills, Calif., hotel suite. But you get the feeling Q would be a handful if you messed with her.

Maybe it has something to do with all those episodes in which she portrayed a vengeful assassin in the acclaimed series Nikita.

Certainly, the looming sense of power she exudes makes her perfectly cast to play Tori Wu in the film version of Veronica Roth’s popular sci-fi novel Divergent.

In the Neil Burger-directed movie version of the dystopian book, Tori befriends the protagonist Tris (Shailene Woodley), who is being trained as a Dauntless officer.

If Tris graduates, she becomes a member of the law-and-order brigade in the post-apocalyptic city-state of Chicago.

As things develop, it is obvious Tori and Tris are keeping secrets but there seems to be an unspoken bond shared by the two, who might be doomed to be eliminated in the brave new world.

Actress Maggie Q attends  the Divergent debut in Los Angeles.

Actress Maggie Q attends the Divergent debut in Los Angeles.

Normally that would be a cue for Q to leap into battle halfway through the movie, but fans might have to wait for her kicks and jumps in Insurgent, based on the second novel in the Divergent trilogy, set to start filming later in the year.

It’s a change of pace to see Q in laid-back mode, but the 34-year-old embraced the Divergent challenge of hinting at what is to come.

“The balance was the fine line between what’s felt and what’s expressed,” Q says of her portrayal.

Q was born Margaret Denise Quigley in Honolulu, Hawaii. She did some modelling in Tokyo as a teenager before being discovered by Jackie Chan. Multiple Asian chop-socky flicks followed as well as a co-starring part in Rush Hour 2.

Next she had high-profile roles in Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible III and Bruce Willis’s Live Free or Die Hard, and then the Nikita series beckoned.

Fans are hoping Q will have more to do in the next two films of Roth’s novels.

“I hope so, too,” she says. “Action for me is an expression of who I am.”

In the sci-fi conceit of Divergent, societies exist in five separate factions. In real life, Q is a domineering Dauntless type but she is also bright, which would make her suited for the Erudite clan.

She also has Abnegation qualities; she’s a selfless animal rights activist. Plus she’s a straight talker, which would make her perfect for The Candor category.

Yet when asked what faction she most identifies with in real life, Q doesn’t hesitate: Dauntless all the way for her.

“Who doesn’t want to express that recklessness?” Q says. “I think there is a recklessness inside all of us.”

Next up for Q is the demanding role of Ching Shih in the limited-run series Red Flag.

Set in the early 1800s, the show profiles Shih, a real-life Chinese prostitute who became one of the most feared pirates on the South China Sea.

Q’s already training for the part and will report for active duty soon.

“It’s one of those passion projects I can’t wait to start,” she says.

Top 15 Facts to BLOW YOUR MIND!!!

jackiechan compiled - Wed, 03/19/2014 - 07:09

Announcements

Hello interweb, it’s Nate here.  So there’s been a few videos out there doing the whole “facts to blow your mind” thing, and I really like random facts.  So here is my personal facts list, here we go.

Rulez

  • Must be a fascinating fact
  • Many of these will not need elaborations as the facts may be straight forward
  • No specific order
  • These facts are mostly searched from the internet, and we know how reliable that can be, so if some of these “facts” aren’t accurate, I apologize ahead of time

Don't believe the internet meme

# 15 The rubics cube has 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible combinations

#14 Getting struck by lightning raises skin to over 50,000°F

That’s hotter than the surface of the sun

#13 An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain

#12 The Happy Birthday song is copyrighted

The 120 year old song Happy Birthday is supposedly copyrighted by Warner Chappell Music and the company claims that unauthorized public performances of the song are technically illegal unless royalties are paid to Warner.  So basically, everyone has been breaking the law for every birthday party we’ve gone to, yay!

#11 The average lead pencil can draw a line that reaches 35 miles long

#10 All elephants walks on their tip-toes

This is because the back of their feet is made up of all fat and no bones

#9 A giraffe can go longer without water than a camel can

#8 Whips were the first human invention that creates a sonic boom

This is because the tip of the whip can travel faster that the speed of sound, which explains the loud “CRACK!” you hear when a whip goes off.

#7 Jackie Chan’s father is a spy and his mother is a drug smuggler

In fact (pun unintended), that’s how they met as his father arrested his mother for smuggling illegal drugs

#6 The artificial sweetener: Splenda, was created when a command to “test this chemical” was misheard as “taste this chemical”

#5 Under high enough pressures, peanut butter can be turned into diamonds

#4 Only 8% of the world’s money exists in physical form

92% is in computers

#3 Technically speaking, the brain named itself and a physicist studying atoms is just a bunch of atoms studying themselves

#2 An atom is approximately 99.99% of empty space

This makes the majority of the universe is nothing.  I mean seriously, 99.99% of you is literally nothingness

#1 Clownfish can change there gender

If the female of the group dies, the dominate male of the group becomes a female

End Thoughts/Announcements

Well they say you learn something new everyday and today you just learned 15 somethings!  Unless you knew some of this information a head of time.  I want to give a shout out to mk109 as he has made the first viewer request on this blog!  His request was for me to review Disney’s Lab Rats, so if you like comedy sitcoms, come check that out.  I’m also working on my first song parody, I won’t record it but I will put the lyrics up here when I’m done.  so if you like Pokemon and you liked the movie Tangled, come check that out.  Peace XD

KARATE KID - SM MEGAMALL, MANDALUYONG, PHIL.

jackiechan compiled - Sun, 03/16/2014 - 16:59

DSC01038We usually got bored and the default destination was your nearest mall to stroll around and enjoy that free air-con (specially when summer time comes hehe) until you get hungry but don’t want to eat on the same fast food chain. This always happen to us not until we found the Karate Kid on the 2nd flr. SM Megamall Bldg. A, which help solve our problems on where to dine-in and eat a different kinds of food, not just fries, spaghetti and burgers.

DSC01039Nope it is not a title of a famous movie, nor a superhero in the making, or the son of Will Smith portraying a kid with a great karate skills, KARATE KID is a fast food chain, offers Japanese food with unlimited rice on there menu.

DSC01037The food presentation was very nice, plating expertise was taken seriously by their chef, just looking at it makes you feel hungry, the foods were definitely worth the price. We ordered a Pork Tonkatsu and Ebi Fryudon (Php 115.00 each) with a default red tea drinks they called Kido Punch Tea (bottomless available) you can change it though to soft-drinks or other beverages that you like, the only cons were the serving time, you really have to wait for a while to eat. That’s just two of those food variations that they offer on there menu. The menu was overwhelming, I bet you’ll have a hard time on choosing what to eat and what to order, so for those first timers, I recommend you order and choose from their Katsudon meals.

DSC01040Karate Kid was definitely a must go to place  if you’re craving for Japanese foods. With so many food variations on there menu along with that budget friendly price plus an unlimited rice offering, you can never go wrong on choosing to dine-in on these place.  From noodles to burgers, and rice meals to desserts, they have it all on Karate Kid.  I wonder why this place called Karate Kid? Do they back flip or screaming “hay-yah!!!” while preparing there food? That will be awesome if they do :D nyahahaha.

JJCC, the Stars of Jackie Chan

jackiechan compiled - Sun, 03/16/2014 - 11:46

Wonder what’s up with Jackie Chan these days? Well, he’s now managing a boy band in the K-pop genre called JJCC or something like Jackie ‘join cultures’ Chan as Billboard and Alex Moore of deathandtaxes believed what it meant to be.

image

Hmm… the group’s name sounds good and easy to recall, though the assumed meaning of it as in “join cultures” (okay, good intentions) inserted between his name doesn’t sort of blend well.

image

No, not saying that Jackie’s got a bad rep, but that there is just no rhythm to it. So, JJCC or Double JC is enough.. besides, the members are not simply good-looking (including hair and style that goes well with their appearance) but talented enough to make a big splash on the entertainment scene.

As reported, each one of them could do just about anything you would want from a singer – sing, dance, rap, and write songs – plus, they speak 3 languages as in English, Korean, and Chinese. Oh, that’s good especially for the fans.

image

And yes, made up of 4 Koreans (SimBa, E.co, EDDY, and San-cheong) and a Chinese-Australian in Prince Mak, all in their early 20s.. the group is currently busy preparing for their album debut this March 24.

Boy, can’t wait to see them strut their wares on their promotional tours!

Hong Kong Slice of Life

jackiechan compiled - Sun, 03/16/2014 - 05:09

When I saw the Reggae Kung Fu poster, I asked my friend, a native of Hong Kong, if Jackie Chan was in town. I meant it as a joke. He didn’t laugh. He took me seriously.

“No. Unfortunately, Jackie Chan is not in town.” He said it as if he knew, at all times, where Jackie Chan actually was. And, he seemed disappointed he could not take me to meet Jackie Chan. He didn’t mention any Reggae artists.

Humor, especially with sarcasm, doesn’t translate well, mine, or his. My friend told me how much he loves Jackie Chan, how much the people of Hong Kong love Jackie Chan. But, he said, the movies made in Hong Kong look different than the movies made in the US.

“What’s the difference,” I asked.

“I don’t know,” he said. “They’re just different.”

He tried to show me some examples. Grittier, dirtier, darker, faster, more martial arts. “American movies make Hong Kong look…cleaner.”

“Show me your Hong Kong.”

He tried to. I think. The sites we filmed and photographed were carefully selected. I spent nearly a week in Hong Kong, this time, and I still don’t think I’ve seen the city, the ‘real’ city. After all, I couldn’t give a one sentence description. Big, tall, vibrant, energizing, fast paced, harried, smelly, busy, clean, dirty… I could use a dictionary and never run out of adjectives to describe Hong Kong. It is all of those things, and more. So, bear with me. I photographed the things I could see. Slice of Life? I hope so…

You might even see Jackie Chan.ShopKeeperWhile waiting for customers, a shopkeeper checks her device.After School SnacksThree children snack on the way home from school.School GirlsSchool just let out.

Talking about Can't Stop - CNBLUE

jackiechan compiled - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 07:23

Hey all! Happy friday and Pi Day! :) Today I have another “Talking about”, and this time it’s going to be about Can’t Stop – CNBLUE! Watch it first if you haven’t already! :D I do realize this song is not that recent, but I wanted to talk about it anyways! Better late than never :D So here we gooo!

CNBLUE is a 4 member rock group that debuted in 2009. I’m pretty sure most of you guys know them anyways hehe :3 But can I just talk about how I really like their group name? I feel like it’s actually personal to them as a group, and I think some band don’t necessarily decide that for their names.

Song: I really liked it! I mean, I enjoy this style of songs anyways, and I really don’t have anything bad to say about it. CNBLUE’s songs are usually good, at least to my taste, and this one was too! I thought Yonghwa’s voice sounded very soothing and pretty and….. and… I don’t really know what to say. :S Hahah it was really pretty to me! He definitely has great vocals. Loved the guitar parts too! It’s an overall good song, and I enjoyed it. :D

Music Video: For the music video, I also liked it. :D I thought there were lots of cool bits, like the split screen to show the cheek kiss, the indoor raining cloud, the shadow on the wall saying “Can’t Stop Me Now”, the really pretty girl, the different rooms they’re in and the furniture (is it weird that I noticed it? :o), the use of the mirrors, etc. I liked the sets that they were in, and their classy outfits haha! It fit well with the beautiful song :) And Yonghwa throwing the chair into that barrier thing! You show your badass-ness, Yonghwa. You go. :3

Overall….. Pretty song with a visually appealing, intriguing video! Would I download the song? Why yes, I would! This is one of the types of music I like, and I could see it part of my playlist :D This is a yay for me!

Sorry this post was so short, or at least it feels like it :S I didn’t have much to say because I liked it overall hehe.
