He's talking about the bonkers 1997 US buddy comedy/Hong Kong-style action/sci-fi B movie gem with Mark Dacascos (whom we enjoyed kicking ass in John Wick 3), Kadeem Hardison (Dwayne Wayne from A Different World), and Brittany Murphy, doing one of those turns where she transforms a peripheral "the girl" part into something electric and weird. It's a lost delight that ticks a lot of the best B movie nerd boxes. [more inside]

So he transfers his soul into a passed-out hobo, giving him his karate moves. I didn't know it was so easy! Neo's skills in The Matrix don't seem so impressive now. Wait... maybe this is the Matrix, and the robots got their brain files mixed up? Agent Smith is going to have to pull overtime to fix this. You know most of the work the Agents do is going to be dumb gruntwork like that. Anyway, 1996 karate hobo action flick go.
