DVD - Kung Fu Hustle

A very funny movie about the residents of an run down alley somewhere in a large Chinese city. Surprisingly when the alley is invaded by gangsters several of its occupants turn out to be Kung Fu masters. Much hilarity, and some fighting ensue.

The movie reminded me more of early film comedies like the Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello than of more modern kung fu comedies.

This is an interesting site that is also a gadget. It lets you format your own personal PocketMod - a single page pocket organiser - that you then print out and fold in a very cunning manner so that it resembles a book.

It is worth checking out but I'm a bit unsure about what they are planning to patent.
