I love it--I'm starting to do a mental catalog of all the films I've seen that feature the Taj. I'm looking forward to the rest of the posts. (Also glad to her "1911" was good, if dense.)

Given my love for the Taj Mahal, I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do this sooner. :-)

Reviews for 1911 have been kind of...well...dreadful. I have to say, you have to be a determined history buff to make it through it, but I found that kind of fascinating. Also fascinating to me was thinking about the message it sends -- it's been accused of being pure propaganda, but the 1911 revolution is one that's still celebrated by the current Chinese regime. I'd rather think about that and what it says and how that fits into Jackie Chan's career than condemn it for it. But I do think that limits the appeal and sits at the heart of the lousy reviews for it.

It's also a film that shows that Indian films aren't the only ones to suffer from really bad Western actors, because there were some doozies in 1911.
