Subject: Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

Observers: John Pavlich, Tysto

Record Date: November 13, 2011, 08:54 PM

Plot Summary: An All-American trucker gets dragged into a centuries-old, mystical battle in Chinatown.

Note: John Carpenter's cult favorite, underappreciated at the time (as if there was one) gets the Sofa Dogs treatment (whatever that's worth). Tysto and I discuss the East-meets-West sensibility of the screenplay, the subversion of the "protagonist" and the dynamic duo of Carpenter and Kurt Russell.
