The Wong Fei-hung Kung Fu Movie Review pre-thread

Recommended Posts

See to me - that's a perfect movie for this

EDIT - to be clear, perfect movie for someone else. Lord would I be irritated if I got that.

Now that I think about, The Machine Girl, RoboGeisha or Mutant Girls Squad would be fun for this. Hell most Iguchi films would be a blast for this... well maybe not Zombie Ass or Dead Sushi

If I could get away with reviewing the first 6 minutes of Super Sentai 199 Great Battle I would!

Hey! Are any of us brave enough to sit through Firepower, that movie with Warrior in it?

I watched it when it PREMIERED on HBO (they hyped the heck out of it). I remember watching it and muttering to myself "thatr can't be UltimateWarrior, he isn't THAT jacked"

Count me in if you don’t mind. I promise not to pick Story of Riki. 

I was on a Shaw Bros. binge in the summer and fall. I was uploading my favorite fight sequences to Instagram too.

My only thought when thinking back on that movie is "poor Chris Penn..."

You know what? I think the only Shaw Bros movie I've ever seen all the way through is Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires.

Which is one weird ass motherfucking movie.

I can't believe El Rey has never showed that. AND I've still never seen it.

It was a co-production with Hammer, right? Did El Rey ever play any Hammer?

We have six picks in so far. All rock solid but nothing I'd consider a curve ball. That is about half of those declared, so I look forward to the next batch.

To the first, yes. An attempt to revive their horror franchise by injecting it with the new cult craze. It... Didn't work.

As for the second, I have no idea. But a Hammer/Shaw Kung Fu Vampire movie sounds like exactly the kind of thing a station partially programmed by Robert Rodriguez would play.

I had El Rey briefly and I would say that a station partially programmed by Robert Rodriguez played about 1% of what I would have expected. Licensing is probably a bitch  major pain.

Speaking of bonus reviews, if anyone is thinking about it but doesn't want to tackle two features, there is plenty of TV stuff to go through. Just off the top of my head: Daredevil, Iron Fist, Green Hornet, Kung Fu, Martial Law, Ultraman, Jackie Chan Adventures, Hong Kong Phooey, Power Rangers, Sidekicks, etc etc. Also plenty of other shows that had martial arts themed episodes. CHiPs, Happy Days, Fantasy Island. and on and on.

I was planning on some TV stuff on that list.

oh if we're doing TV shows then I'm going to have my VHS copies of Ta-Mo: Originator of Kung-Fu!

Possibly the most batshit insane TV series I've ever watched

I just saw this.

I'm in the middle of a move, so I don't know when I'll be able to settle down and watch much.  One minute, the loan is approved, the next they need something else, so I have to spend two or three days getting that from the right person, to call the right person, to get it to the right person.  All the while packing a box here, a box there.

It's some bullshit.

I remember one episode of CHiPs that seemed like a pilot for a show about ninjas.

Still have over a week to make a pick and it is going to be roughly the end of May before it starts.

Yeah, there was an episode literally titled Karate that featured Danny Bonaduce. It had a sequel the following season.
