When your house in the San Fernando Valley isn't nice enough to rent out for porn shoots, you rent it out for movies like this.

Totally worth it for the "undercover cop" joke.

Was there a time when the vest of a three-piece suit was intentionally that short?

It's almost endearing how clever I'll bet the screenwriter thought that bulletproof vest twist was.

That was like the lead-up to a sword fight between two four-year-olds.

The heavy committing seppeku is actually a pretty bad-ass ending if they had done anything to set it up in the previous 90 minutes.

I had thought this before honestly, but I'm gonna insist in the fall we do Ghost Dog: Way Of The Samurai which is legit, no sarcasm in like my 20 or 30 favorite movies of all-time.

I do agree of course, but yet I think it could lend itself to a good discussion also?

Red Letter Media did an interview with the main actor a few years back and he's pretty cool and self-aware. A lot of background info about the movie if you're still fascinated by what you saw:

That's the thing for me. It's one thing to watch and type if you've seen the movie many times ("Jackie Brown" worked well this way for most, if not all of us in that thread), but it's hard to pull off paying attention to a serious movie and keep up with the thread.

Feel free to bring back the Forrest Whitaker avatar, though.
