WONG FEI-HUNG KUNG FU MOVIE REVIEW pre-thread


Recommended Posts

Someone asked if we're doing this so let's see if we have enough interest. I'll post the rules and link the previous threads sometime tonight.

And just in case the video wasn't already indicative, Samurai films are eligible this year....except for Seven Samurai and Yojimbo. Too easy to pick and millions of words have already been written about them. Dig a little deeper.

I'm gonna be too busy this month with packing and moving so I'm gonna have to pass. 

If you find the time and want to toss a bonus review my way, your contributions are always appreciated.

Going through Year 1 again - my review of Royal Warriors is one of my favorite things I ever wrote

Thank you, Sir. I'm at work and it probably would be at least another eight hours before I'd have been able to find the time to do that. Usual rules apply. Say you're in, pick a film and pm me, wait to receive yours. I'll wait until a few more people jump in before I set a deadline for picks.

It's one of my favorite reviews for WFH.

I'm in.  I'll have to come up with a pick that is fairly accessible.

I still cannot believe I actually watched Kill Or Be Killed and Kill and Kill Again in one afternoon.

In honor of John, I will try to track down and review The Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires.

Reading that and watching the trailer again, I might just do a bonus of it. Not only did you say they set off a grenade in a plane and it doesn't crash, there's an exploding car in the trailer that a person is running TOWARDS. 😄

I can not begin to properly explain how fucking entertaining that movie is

Amazon.com: The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires [Blu-ray]: Peter Cushing, David Chiang, Julie Ege, Roy Ward Baker, Cheh Chang: Movies & TV

FYI if you guys have a Roku, the Midnight Pulp app has a good amount of kung fu/martial arts on it.  HBO Max has samurai movies in the TCM section.

Well, we have the minimum six that I required. Shout out to @jaedmc, @AxB, @Raziel, @nate, @driver and anyone I may have forgotten to see if anyone else who has participated in the past wants to join the party. Already have two picks. I'll make the deadline for those 5/14.

What do we all think is the best fight scene ever, and why is it the Kitchen Fight from The Raid 2?

 

I'm in.

I'm reviewing my recent work schedule.  I'm hoping I can participate, but lately my life has been days of work-sleep, work-sleep, etc.

Thanks for tagging me, though, @Execproducer.

Ken Lo vs. Jackie Chan in Legend of the Drunken Master and Donnie Yen vs. Colin Chou in Flashpoint both say "Hey!" 

I am also fond of the Zhang Ziyi vs. Michelle Yeoh weapons free for all in CTHD and the rooftop fight scene from Who Am I?

We'll get to all of this in the actual movie review thread and yeah, I haven't seen a fight in Raid or Raid 2 that I didn't like.  The hallway fight in The Raid where Rama is wrecking dudes with a tonfa and a knife is just mindblowing and Mad Dog should be a household name.

Iko Uwais is a babyfaced killer!
