My slow return from Cannes means I’ve only seen one of this week’s movies: “Kung Fu Panda“, which is surprisingly delightful, given its obnoxious marketing.
It’s very good. You should see it, even if you think the whole Jack Black thing is kinda played out. He makes an excellent panda.
Also opening this week: “The Children of Huang Shi”, “Finn’s Girl”, “The Go-Getter”, “Mongol”, “My Brother is an Only Child” and “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”. I’ll get to them eventually.
