Kung Fu Hustle on Netflix !

“In a time of social unrest and disorder the gangs run amok. The most feared is the Axe Gang. Only in the poorest districts, which hold no interest for the gangs, can people live in peace. ”

If you love Chinese Kung Fu movies, twisted humor, great special affects, incredible action, weird and wonderful directing with love and inner strength triumphing over all.. Then this is the film for you.

Why is it one of my all time favorite flicks ? Because I find it unique and because it mashes together all the fun of the old Kung Fu movies with plot themes of Chinese mythology. The characters are surprising and weird. The choreography of fight scenes is done from unusual camera angles.

Written, directed and acted by Stephen Chow, you can see the best version… In the original Canton with English subtitles.

Yes, yes.. It is violent, and I usually avoid violence in my movies, but it is done with a purpose, much like the Kill Bill films.

Am I biased because this movie’s plot weaves around a humorous take on Buddhist martial arts.. Definitely !

So, if you get Netflix, I highly recommend this movie. You can also find it available on other platforms.

Come back and tell me what you think after you’ve watched “Kung Fu Hustle”.

Coleus Poisonous to Cats

Whew ! I brought my “Kong” coleus into the house to overwinter. My cat was immediately drawn to it but I’d forgotten to check if it was poisonous first. We had to get the plant out of the house immediately. Here’s the deets :

WHAT IS COLEUS POISONING? The coleus plant can be poisonous to your cat, even if it simply brushes up against the leaves or flowers. Coleus contains an essential oil toxic to cats and dogs, which can cause skin irritations and burns if not diagnosed and treated right away.

Additionally, if your cat eats any part of this plant, it will also develop gastrointestinal symptoms. The poisonous oils from this plant can also cause respiratory depression or slowed breathing, which can be potentially fatal to your pet. 


The essential oils in a coleus plant are quickly absorbed into your cat’s system, allowing it to become very sick very quickly: Loss of appetite or anorexia Vomiting (may be bloody) Diarrhea (may also be bloody) Drooling, Pawing at the skin of the face and mouth.

Skin redness is visible underneath cat’s fur. Burns on facial skin, tongue and gums. Depression, Cat is physically weak, Body tremors, Cat walks with difficulty, Lethargy and physical weakness, Hypothermia (low body temperature) after ingestion of a large amount of coleus) Breathing difficulty.

Types : “Coleus” is an umbrella name for several plant varieties, including:

Spanish thyme

Country borage

Bread and butter plant

Stinging thyme

Indian borage

East Indian thyme

All of these varieties can be poisonous for your cat, so be zealous in making it difficult for your pet to get access to them. With some cats, this may not be possible.
