Movie Trailer of the Day

The Man With The Iron Fists is an over-the-top kung fu flick starring Lucy Liu. What more needs to be said?

Fine -- here's the plot, as if it matters: In feudal China, a blacksmith who makes weapons for a small village is put in the position where he must defend himself and his fellow villagers.

Produced by Quentin Tarantino, RZA's directorial debut also stars Russell Crowe. Out October 26.

(Not Safe For Work -- red band.)

This guy was on the receiving end of a taser and an all-around police beatdown and obviously lost. When the case went to trial, the Portland city attorney, representing the arresting officer, tried using the reasoning that the suspect owned a kung-fu movie collection, so the brutality was justified. The jury wasn't convinced and now the city is paying out $250,000, which should buy some decent self-defense lessons in addition to new kung-fu DVDs.
