    Also, I think it would behoove Dana White to get into the MMA (Multi-Marble Arts) biz with his own league, "Ultimate Marble Championships." Pretty soon playgrounds across the country will be brimming with UMC nutriders, who will develop a habit of referring to the sport as "Ultimate Marbles" instead of "Multi-Marble Arts."

      I would like to point out that none of David Mammet's movies have ever gone straight to video.

          More importantly, why the fuck is it called "Redbelt"?

            I've been wondering that myself and I can't seem to figure it out. The only two scenarios I could think of were either the main character has attained grandmaster status (which would be retarded) or he's actually a white belt who was in many "Bloodsport" style kumites (which would also be retarded). It's pretty much a lose-lose for the title, but I'm not going to get hung up on that.

                    I was a bit shocked at all the people who think this could be good, because it looks like a piece of excrement. Maybe you guys are hoping for a good movie and projecting those feelings on to this marble movie, I don't know, but just wtf.

                          Those Youtube clips are an eye-opener. After The Spanish Prisoner I imagined David Mamet as Woody Allen. It looks like he just got out of prision for stealing Woody Allen's car so he could get a pack of menthols.

                          Sadly enough, the real clincher on this movie is Ricky Jay's appearance. He's been in a lot of cool movies, hangs with Penn and Teller and can stick a playing card into a watermelon at 10 paces, that's not shabby.

                            I LOVE the first movie:

                            admin edit: for the love of god people, stop using youtube's embed code. Just put in the URL and it autoembeds
                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZLAlceZ2qo
                            Can't wait to see the second.

                            Hmmm.... I think after the movie ends, they will have only one way to dispose of the marbles:

                            VS.

                            [IMG]http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9G_bF55LbZHHoAAeHyjzbkF/SIG=12f6le2kn/EXP=1203207929/**http%3A//www.energyessentials.org/images/photo_ashida_kim.jpg[/IMG]

                            I think the marbles would win.

                            Also, want to know something sad? This is where I got the Ashida pic.

                              Sounds like the typical honorable master - thuggish MMA-fighter bullshit. However, the movie has interesting components: the business aspects, the idea with the handicaps and Randy Couture. Plus it might offer the chance to set my MMA-ignorant friends straight.

                                It's a David Mamet picture. Damn near all the movies he directs are a step above stage play. That's just his thing.

                                Mamet said he wanted to do the movie like a Kurosawa picture so I'm guessing it's a reference to the Kurosawa picture, Red Beard.
