  1. It’s true, Annabelle Creation is much more interesting. I thought The Nun was pretty decent too,
  2. I also want to point out that this is directed by Star Trek alumni Roxann Dawson. She’s directed a lot of television and is very talented. I hope this opens up more opportunities for her to do more movies. I haven’t seen it yet, but I certainly plan to. Oh yeah, I forgot Luke Cage was in this. Nice.

    Star Trek: Picard

    Yup. Hate to have to subscribe to CBS All Access to watch new Star Trek content, but Picard looks like it going in a good direction. I really hope they don’t screw it up....
  4. Not a classic by any means, but I’ll admit I like this film. I love Sammo’s, as you say, cigar chomping veteran character. I also liked the team vs team set up it had going for a while. Bad guys were well cast, you almost want to root for them if not for Sammo. The only real bummer for this movie is some bad editing choices and those unnecessary b/w cutaways. Also, in regard to Sammo’s fight with Heo Jun-Ho; yeah there’s some quick cuts and darkly lit shots but it’s still a really good fight overall. Pretty fun way to spend 110 minutes IMO.
  5. Why did so many Shaw actresses commit suicide during this period? I feel like this has been discussed before, but I don’t remember what was discovered.
  6. This film rocks my face off. The action is excellent and it’s pretty much non-stop. The two hour runtime just flies by. The early fight involving Roger Yuan and Tiger Chen set the bar so high I didn’t know how the movie would sustain it for two hours. But then Halle Berry and her dogs show up in an amazing second act and have another incredible action scene with Reeves. The final act is when Mr. Dacascos and Mad Dog get involved. The Mad dog (plus another dude I can’t recall) fight with Wick isn’t as strong as I’d hoped, but by then I might have been so exhausted myself that I could be misjudging it. I just wanted his fight to have more a different style to it. Dacascos gets in some great moves in his fight with Wick and it was nice to see him in a big movie like this. In short, this film is amazing. Everyone involved should be proud of the amount of work that went into this. Just wow.

    What are your latest DVD/Blu-ray purchases?

    dddhouse had a good deal on this so I couldn’t resist. Currently have the old R1 DVD (with Chan’s enjoyable audio commentary), so this uncut BD will be a great upgrade.

    Chor Yuen / Gu Long movies

    I’m glad this thread has come back. I’m very interested in watching all these films in the recommended order by panku now.

    Martial Law on DVD from Visual Entertainment Inc.

    Season 2 has good episodes and the new line up grows on you. Just takes a little time. I still think it’s a miracle that we got 44 episodes of Sammo on network television. I love this series for him alone.
  10. I LOOOOVE Shaolin Prince. Top Shaw film for me.

    The Eureka! Kung-Fu Cinema Blu-ray Thread

    Hey, Markgway’s back! Great news!
  13. Completed a transaction with @cooksandkungfoodle and it was very smooth. He even went out of his way to correct an issue with a missing disc and was very understanding about some PayPal stuff that I was unaware of. He’s got some more good stuff available too if anyone else wants to give him a try!
