  1. The TRIPLE THREAT photoshopped nunchucks i think came as a suprise to all of us when we saw the artwork..... But yes nunchucks really do play a part in the battle between the Little Dragon & mighty Mark Strange, and the still of Danny is in mid fight!

    When i first arrived in HK, a big eye opener was how so many people smoked and still do, actors, directors, stuntmen etc In HK, China, Korea etc, smoking is still something of a social occasion, and cigarettes are still cheap compared to the west there was also when i arrived cigarette advertising on TV< blatant advertising in moves,how many times have you seen Winston Cigarettes popping up in HK movies? And then Marlbaro and other companies started sponsoring music and movies in the early 90's, Saviour of the Soul, Gameboy Kids etc feature some blatant cigarettes are cool moments!
  4. American martial arts actor/director Kenn Scott the star of SHOWDOWN with Billy Blanks and James Lew, and the Director of the fun rockabilly martial arts action comedy THE ADVENTURES OF JOHNNY TAO, first popped onto the radar playing Raphael in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies and in his new book, Kenn talks about the ups and downs, the highs and lows of becoming a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and working with everyone from Pat Johnson, Ernie Reyes Jnr and the Yuen Clan It's a lot of fun, and has that same kind of sense of fun as Matthew Polly's American Shaolin https://www.amazon.com/Teenage-Ninja-Mutant-Turtle-Becoming-ebook/dp/B07ZBK5HGH/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1572015103&sr=8-1&fbclid=IwAR2XmX8A-Q3KvldB6uO5piAPnsMcMDwQs2N2OyaktWdZh0KEPwfq4MoHJU8

    Prince of the Sun (1990)

    I will always have a soft spot for this film, i got to spend a lot of time on the set during the shoot with Jeff and Cyndy....and it was disorganized to say the least...with Cynthia's time on the movie not being used wisely, we ended up doing an insane final day that began the night before with the fight at the playground and ended in the afternoon with the fight with jeff and cyndy in the park Conan was originally supposed to be the comic relief who thought he could fight and couldn't for the entire film, but when they realized how much time had been wasted, suddenly they decided more action was needed and the Lam Ching-ying possesses him business came about... Welson Chin who directed the Inspector Wears Skirt series wasn't the best director and I know Yuen Tak got lockd out during editing which could explain why the actions not that sharp, not sure why the film is so bad grain wise and everything like its some lost 70's indi.....
  10. I was interviewed amongst some solid Hong Kong talent for this upcoming documentary covering the evolution and intl appeal of the martial arts movie from old school to new school and beyond, it makes its debut at Melbourne International Film Festival had to rock a 36 Styles shirt of course for the interview... was funny as we touched on The Matrix and i was shooting Loveland a sci-fi thriller in Hong Kong with Hugo Weaving at the time....
