|"Han" & "Trish"|
Initially, I sent out a very sweet request to my fellow Narrative authors for one of them - as in not Moi - to do a post honoring this film before this decade let out. Ain't none of those wenches hit me back...*shakes fist*...treacherous hussies.
But I digress.
If we're going to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Ninja Assassin, then we can't overlook the ten-year anniversary of Romeo Must Die. After all, we respect our elders here at the Narrative.
That's right, Narrators...it's been ten whole years since Jet Li and Aaliyah (*sniff*) gave the Blasian presence a jolt in mainstream media. They've kept peeps talking a full decade since, and though there was no kiss in the film, they still made a lasting impression.
By the way, shortly after this film came out, Aaliyah did an interview with Seventeen magazine (I think) in which she discussed the kiss which was filmed, but then cut out. She said she decided to play a prank on Jet by kissing while wearing false teeth. I remember reading, she said he was so intensely focused on kissing her he didn't even notice*.
We at the Narrative raise our eyebrow to that.
*I'm not hallucinating; someone else read that interview too. But they left out the good stuff. *sniff*
