Big Trouble in Little China

Everyone has this one movie they like to watch when they feel down or under the weather. Mine is Big Trouble in Little China.

A rough-and-tumble trucker helps rescue his friend’s fiance from an ancient sorcerer in a supernatural battle beneath Chinatown. – IMDb

The movie came out in 1986, I was 10 at that time, we’re 34 years later (this really doesn’t make me feel old ;p), and I still love it as much. While some movies age badly, “Big Trouble in Little China” still looks as great as when I’ve first watched it. A real 80’s classic if you ask me.

Kurt Russell who plays the role of Jack Burton is a true 80’s icon with a killing sense of humour. Here are some of my favourite quotes:

Jack Burton: Okay. You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we’re not back by dawn… call the president.

Jack Burton: Everybody relax, I’m here.

A perfect movie to grab some popcorn and relax because John Carpenter is about to take you on one hell of a ride.
