On Bulletproof Monk:
For my birthday, my wife and I went with one of our friends to have dinner at Bahama Breeze (a Caribbean-themed chain of restaurants) and then met up with a few friends to see Bulletproof Monk. I honestly remember very little of the comic, but I was pleased with the movie. It's cheesy as hell, and the villains are about as camped up as anything you'll see outside a Joel Schumacher film, but Chow Yun-Fat is funny for the first time I can remember seeing him, both Sean William Scott and Jamie King are likable and have decent enough chemistry together and the action sequences are nifty, even if the CGI is a bit weak and easy to spot. This is a cheesy action movie, and I don't think the filmmakers intended all of the humor that I got out of it, but it was a lot of fun.
