Kung Fu Movie Review

Recommended Posts

In order to have something to distract ourselves in these trying times I'm debating with myself about moving this up. But it felt like maybe we all were kind of burnt out a little bit for Ernie Ladd so I'll take your feedback.

I'm up for it. Secret Santo is going well right now so maybe this will too.

I will just say that interest in Ernie Ladd was way down - both in participation and bonus reviews.

Granted circumstances have changed over the last 2 months but I am not sure if that will make it better or worse

I will not participate since I still have to finish my Ernie Ladd review that I have been staring at 1/2 written for a month now because I can't get in the right mindset.

Well, I'm out of work for the foreseeable future....SO LET'S DO IT!!!! 

If we can get a minimum of six people, including myself, then it'll be worthwhile. So we are halfway there.

I'm in. Have to look up what my back up choice was last time.

I doubt I'll do the swordplay theme that I had in mind until this subject is exhausted. So probably never. With that said, this year I'll allow chanbara films though my preference would be that they were bonus reviews instead of picks. I won't take more than two samurai picks.

I'm trying to decide what I will pick, but I am good for that bonus review of Last Hurrah For Chivalry.

Let's go ahead and make this official. We have five that expressed interest so we'll roll with that number. Samurai films for bonus reviews only. Deadline for picks will be a leisurely April 15 but if they are in before that, and it doesn't look like anyone else wants to jump in, we'll start sooner.

My pick will kinda look like a cop-out, but it is a movie that we didn't talk about last time that needs inclusion.

If I get my act together - I might do a bonus review or two (since I had a couple sitting around from last year) but there is no way I want to be responsible for selecting and getting a selection

I'm going to start writing my bonus reviews for next year's  Ernie Ladd soon. Assuming I still have a roof over my head by the time February rolls around.

I hope you're joking about that, man.

I will clean up my bonus review for Last Hurrah in advance of this year's thread.

Mostly. I work for a hotel/casino. We're getting paid through April. It is up in the air after that. But like Gloria Gaynor sang, I will survive.

Plenty of time for anyone to jump into this. If I get all picks in before the April 15th deadline I'll make an announcement and we'll give it another couple of days to see if anyone else wants to join. I have two picks already so we might start well before the cut-off.

What were the prior picks? I'm feeling at a loss with this one. It might end up being a pretty obvious pick, but so be it.

With Sandy on the cusp of turning 2 there is no way I'm getting 5 reviews in again!
