Why yes, this was just an excuse to draw Ellen and Nanase in various outfits.
I think between Shanghai Noon and Knights, I preferred Knights. It had awesome sword fighting, and it really emphasized the friendship between Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan. Yeah, that's not what their character names were, but I can't remember them. I need to watch those movies again, darn it.
I also vote "no" to the college party comedy. When I was in high school, I had an interest in those movies because of the potential for certain, um, "visuals". These days, I think I'd probably spend most of my time watching the movie loathing each and every character present.
I guess the jungle movie is a reference to Tarzan? I think I just wanted to draw Ellen in that outfit.
