I Had No Hope of Ever Naming This Smackdown!!!
(Revisit Round 1, Round 2, the Intermission, and Round 3A)
Despite my dedication to blogging about movies few others care to sit through twice, I occasionally show some love to the really critically acclaimed films as well. In this post, I'm reviewing not one, but two Oscar winners filmed in the Philippines.
But the real difference between today's pairing and that of last week is not quality, but setting. I reviewed Bloodfist and Enter the Ninja not just on the conventional merits, but also on their use of the Philippines as a backdrop. Today's two movies, however, may share the same landscapes and extras, but with the full understanding that these are meant to pass for the scenery and locals of different Southeast Asian countries.
