If you are not familiar with the 2008 film Kung Fu Panda, Wikipedia explains:

Kung Fu Panda is a 2008 American computer-animated action comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures. It was directed by John Wayne Stevenson and Mark Osborne and produced by Melissa Cobb, and stars the voice of Jack Black along with Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, Ian McShane, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, Randall Duk Kim, James Hong, Dan Fogler and Michael Clarke Duncan. Set in a version of ancient China populated by anthropomorphic animals, the plot revolves around a bumbling panda named Po who aspires to be a kung fu master. When an evil kung fu warrior is foretold to escape from prison, Po is unwittingly named the chosen one destined to bring peace to the land, much to the chagrin of the resident kung fu warriors.

Ian McShane is doing well for himself, isn’t he?

I haven’t seen either of the Kung Fu Panda films, although I do believe that the first one contains only half of the awesomeness of the sequel.

You may remember a while ago, I complained about the poor pun employed by Robbie Collin from the News Of The World and used as a pull-quote for the film Thor:

I thorly enjoyed it.

I didn’t think that this was a successful pun, as the word “thorly” was too far removed from the word “thoroughly” to work. This was brought into sharp focus by the deft hyphen use by the people at Yahoo Movies who described the film as “thor-oughly entertaining”:

You can understand how pleased I was, proud even, to see that Robbie Collin from the News Of The World had clearly taken my criticism on board and worked harder when writing his review for Kung Fu Panda 2:

A terrific movie… CHOP DRAWER

This is much better. Well done Robbie. “CHOP DRAWER”. Good work.

When Mark Adams from the Sunday Mirror reviewed Thor he said it was “an epic action-packed fantasy adventure”:

This is almost just a functional description of the type of film Thor is, rather than any kind of recommendation or or critique or expression of opinion or thought but it was enough to make Kenneth Brannagh happy and he included it on his poster without question. Personally, I think the literal descriptive style suits Mark Adams best. Look what happens when he tries to be funny:

Oh Mark.
