It's the third anniversary of the podcast and the Common Craig is STILL not cured! Nicole has chosen a nostalgic favorite, John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China (1986), in hopes of finally escaping the Hell of the Way Too Long Podcasts!
Kurt Russell stars in this 80s box office flop turned cult film sensation, as Jack Burton, a truck driver who uses his swaggering bravado to mask the fact that he is completely inept at pretty much everything. When a stop in San Francisco has him witnessing the kidnapping of his friend's fiancée, the resulting adventures in Chinatown leave Jack feeling completely out of his element. But to be fair, how many people would feel comfortable stumbling into a back alley funeral procession that becomes a war? Or meeting an ancient sorcerer, who must marry and then sacrifice someone with green eyes, to appease the demon who has cursed him? Not to mention the Lords of Death, a gang of toughs, have stolen his truck. It does seem like a lot for one day.
