I've gotta get this!

Mistake in the review:

Those old archival pieces of footage are the best of quality, but the new interviews looks very good.

I "think" it's supposed too be:

Shouldn't this movie be called "I was Bruce Lee"?

I don't think he ever said that.

The present tense doesn't sit well with me, he has been dead for around 40 years.

The idea is that he lives on in our hearts and memories. It's not literal.

Good sounding review. Haven't seen this yet. Enjoy watching documentaries and might end up blind buying this since Netflix still has an unknown availability date for it.

I certainly wouldn't go that far.

Bruce Lee had criticised traditional martial arts tournements and referred to them as "organised despair" so as a result he became an actor. (because movies are real.)

His acting was terrible. That is why John Saxon was his supporting actor in Enter The Dragon.

He was a good martial artist, but I don't see much point as it ultimately lead to a premature death at 32. I personally would prefer to live longer.

You clearly have a bone to pick. Let's walk in your shoes:

You're from Scotland. So every time you watch Braveheart, you have a problem
with Mel Gibson saying, "I'm William Wallace, I can shoot lighting bolts from my
arse!"?

Because he should be saying it in past tense?! Because Wallace is definitely
dead for much more than 40 years.

"He was a good martial artist, but I don't see much point as it ultimately lead to
a premature death at 32. I personally would prefer to live longer."

So that's the false dichotomy fallacy you reason with? Either be a good martial
artist and die young, or be a long-living bone-picker about the tense of film titles.

"I personally would prefer" you go on a campaign to get Died Hard, Star Trekked,
and Bravedhearted.

-----

Did you post in other film threads of icons that died young with your keen insight?

Doors:
Jim Morrison was a good front man, but I don't see much point... I prefer to live
longer.

La Bamba:
Richie Valens was a good singer-songwriter, but I don't see much point... I prefer
to live longer.

The Holy Bible:
Jesus was a good miracle worker, but I don't see much point... I prefer to live
longer.

-----

And that's how a punch from Bruce Lee probably feels like (I meant "felt like").
