Debuting last weekend on Netflix, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON: SWORD OF DESTINY has lost original director Ang Lee, but star Michelle Yeoh has returned, along with fight choreographer - and now director - Yuen Woo-Ping. Can they bring the magic back, too? Josh and Adam discuss, and are joined by critic and podcaster Sean Gilman, who shares his Top 5 Wuxia Films.
