This movie is amazing.

When I first saw it, I willingly endured one of the worst migraines of my life because I couldn’t stop watching it. Even watching it for the umpteenth time, I still can’t stop. It’s about the Battle of Red Cliffs/the Battle of Chibi - one of, if not the, most epic battles during the Three Kingdoms era of China…which I admit I became highly interested in after becoming fan of the Dynasty Warriors video game series.

(Side point: Video games can most definitely be educational. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.)

But anyway, I saw a photo set of Takeshi Kaneshiro on my dash and I just had to throw this up there. He plays Zhuge Liang and Tony Leung appears as Zhou Yu. I still can’t get my hands on a copy of Romance of the Three Kingdoms book(s), but someday…

Just… so amazing. I’m watching it this weekend. Again. Oh, and if you do ever choose to see it, do the full 5 and a half hours or so. None of this cut-down-2.5 hour-US-release crap.
