Back to Jackie Chan. I’m not sure why I like his movies so much but I do. It’s pretty weird.

Anyway, a funny thing with his movies is that they get released in different ways so the naming is all screwy. For example, Operation Condor was actually a sequel to a movie called Armour of God. But it was released in the U.S. before the prequel. So the prequel’s name in the U.S. is Operation Condor 2: The Armour of Gods. But the sequel’s name I think in Hong Kong is called Armour of God II: Operation Condor. That’s confusing.

There are other confusing things also. Like, Supercop I think was actually the third movie in the Police Story series. But then there’s a sequel to this, which is called in some places Supercop 2. But in other places it’s called Police Story 4, or, absurdly, Police Story 3 Part 2. Even more confusing – I think some places call this movie Police Story 5. Because there’s a later movie, called First Strike, which is called in some places Police Story 4.

Anyway, it’s confusing and it makes it hard to figure out which movie is which, and what I have and haven’t seen. Because I want to see them all.
