    Meh. It was clearly leading and going to win before I even voted. There was no need to be enigmatic.

    I was fairly confident this one would win because I figured most of our participants hadn't seen it before. It's a trip.

    Now be advised, this is the film titled Chocolate that was made in 2008/9. It's Thai, and it was directed by the same guy that directed Ong Bak. It's not the Indian one, British one, Nepali one, or other one.

    Edit: Its alternate title is not Magnolia, but it was released by Magnolia Pictures. Thanks youtube.

    Where did you read this?

    On wiki it says the alternate title is Zen, Warrior Within. That's a fucking awful title. As far as I can gather the original title is the Thai word for chocolate.

    Youtube.

    Although upon future review, the Magnolia in its title is actually the indicator that it was released by Magnolia Pictures.

    It's the Thai film with the ass-kicking female protagonist.

    So we where *this* close to getting The Bride with White Hair into the Sherdog Movie Club? I'm honestly a bit sad that that didn't happen.

    If you're going to feauture Kill Bill then you might as well feuture the film that inspired it, Lady Snowblood.

    I already have something planned but in all fairness if someone posts a theme that I think is better than mine I'll consider it.

    Hmm, I'll have to consider that. Strangely, one of the movies I'm considering contains an unreliable narrator. I'll do what almost never happens, I'll give you the sneak peak at the theme I'm considering. I won't say the movies, just the theme.

    Movies based on a true story.

    When it comes out on DVD, if no one else has gotten to it by then, I'll nominate this and make some sort of a "return to old picks" thing out of it, where we hit The Room first and then this.

    The theme for that could be "films that followed one of our picks" - not just sequels, but remakes, spiritual successors, spinoffs, influences, etc.
