So Rapeman isn't your ideal date movie?

I probably would have lost interest in the genre if I had nobody to talk kung fu with. I would be one depressed evil mofo if I couldn't talk kung fu. I still ask most everyone I meet if they watch kung fu. I won't give up! :banghead:


Actually since we are human we really do need to have a bit of face-to-face stimuli with people. It actually is healthy for us. Hence the "no substitute" of what I wrote (and I will stand by that.) But I agree that Internet people are a complement for what you wrote. I also know few people who are knowledgeable about the films I am (imagine me talking about my silent movie knowledge with people much less kung fu.) Though this is one reason I tend to branch out quite a bit so I can work movie conversation in with a variety of folks.

Of course when you known for being a movie buff you get the dreaded "you haven't seen that" syndrome which actually drives me a bit much. You can just imagine the movies that people have said this to me. Some I agree with, some I just get a Client Eastwood link twitch and carry on with a different subject.

I agree you do need a bit of face to face with real people, a very little bit. Then when they leave I can watch kf movies :P

I can actually imagine you getting edgy if someone is talking to you too long and you are already zoned out thinking about what next kung fu film you are going to watch.

Sometimes I feel like that when someone speaks to me too long as well, specifically when its a boring conversation that doesnt go anywhere or I dont care about, or takes far too long to get to the point.

Well, it is a romantic drama/comedy, so...

[and yeah, I'm not kidding. It's been a while since I saw it, but if I recall correctly it's about a high school teacher who is helping out his students with their daily problems at daytime, is dating a nice reporter woman after work and righting wrongs by penetrating only evil women at night].

That being said, I still wouldn't recommend it for the first date. Might make the girl a bit cautious... although that's just stupid. I mean, if you take her to see Batman is she gonna think you're some looney who wants to dress up as a bat and have sex with catwoman? :lol:
