We were having a discussion on 2013 May 7 about a list of “the 20 most devastating moves in martial arts films.” Here’s what I had to say about that list and some other scenes I’d have added to the list.
If you’ve known me for more than a few days, you’ve probably seen me fiddling around with a piece of paper. I first got into origami because my father was amazing at making paper airplanes. He got me a book (long since lost after a move, sadly) full of these incredible designs, like one that looked like a throwing dart and another that looked like a vampire bat. As a kid, my first thought was, naturally, “How do I make these things fly harder, faster, better, stronger?” Then in high school, the question became, “How can I make these cool things that make me and my pals laugh?”
