Ong-Bak: Muay Thai warrior
KE is back from his trip and yesterday we watched a DVD he had brought back from Thailand. Ong-Bak is a typical Thai fighting movie, which to be honest is not normally my cup of tea, but this one was very well done with excellent action scenes and a reasonable story. And it also helped that actor Jaa Panom (Tony Jaa) is cute in his white singlet. Part of the movie is set in Bangkok's Kao San Road where I stayed for a few weeks on my first back packing trip to Asia in 1987. Three more weeks and I will be there again!
