Thanks to all who responded to my plea for help making my way through the Jackie Chan oeuvre.
Dave makes a good point: “I think you have stumbled on to one of those questions that Buddhists use to clear the mind of thought for meditation. How can you judge whether a Jackie Chan movie is bad?”
Chan’s made 90 films. Therefore the fact that four of the six people who emailed me with their favorites mentioned Drunken Master and Police Story suggests we’ve moved beyond statistical fluke into the realm of consensus. They’re going into the Netflix queue.
Amazon-style, we also got a note suggesteing Buster Keaton. Good call, DW.
