For those unaware, the launch of 36STYLES.COM is coming next week! This means we will be moving the forum to its new home. The new link to the forum will be https://www.36styles.com/kungfufandom ... bookmark it now!

The site as a whole, including the forum, will be down on Monday, March 2. To minimize the forum downtime, I plan on bringing the forum back online, even before implementing the new features, as setting these up will probably take some time. I will send out an email to all registered members once the forum is back up. 

Some exciting times are ahead for KUNG FU FANDOM!

  1. I watched this light night and was surprised to not enjoy it all that much. In my eyes, it's distinctly average. I didn't hate it but I certainly didn't love it. It was fine. Everyone - other than Daniel Craig - is fantastic but I found everything a bit slow going and even the twists and turns weren't enough to excite me. My wife loved it so, for me, this could be Parasite all over again. A film everyone else adores and I just don't.
  2. Are you going to do this on every movie thread?
  3. That’s his voice in the trailer, for sure. Just a bit older and a bit more grizzled. I can see him being Candyman but the film being about him possessing Mateen’s character.
  4. Looks great. I like the idea of a new character embodying Candyman and taking over the Tony Todd legacy. It’s a nice spin. I adore the original movie so I’m excited for this one.
  5. A promo trailer can be found here: https://rights.mediawan.com/francophone-catalogue/program/4407# It certainly looks like it delivers the action.
  6. Philip Ng and Andy On star in a film that was made in 2015 and is only now getting a release. Not a good sign. With that said, the trailer makes it look like mildly interesting...

    Undercover Punch and Gun (2019)

    I know he was Dean Shek’ing it up but I honestly liked him. I thought he was a fun little goof and exhibited genuine charisma. My wife thought he was a pain in the arse though.
  8. 88 Films today revealed that Dragons Forever will be a two-disc set.

    Undercover Punch and Gun (2019)

    I enjoyed this one too. There are a lot of things wrong with it but I think it's a fun little nod to the 90's era of kung fu cinema. Phillip Ng handles the choreography well and I think Vanness Wu genuinely shines.
  10. Warriors of the Nation - Have you ever watched a film that’s so mediocre it makes you angry? If you haven’t, this is that film. It’s not offensively bad; it’s just excruciatingly “meh”. Vincent Zhao is almost ten years younger than Donnie Yen and here he is moving half as fast and with half the power. He looks old and bored here. That makes two of us, Vincent. While there are more fights than in the first film - better fighters at that - the choreography is awfully dull. A total amateur hour. It’s a shame really as now and again, something happened that raised my eyebrow. A kick here, a one-on-one there. But for the most part is shitty block, block, punch hyped up with lazy wirework. It’s mildly enjoyable. But mildly just isn’t enough these days. Wait for this to hit Netflix. And even then, wait for a boring, rainy Sunday to watch it. You’re not going to get much out of this one.
  11. This thread might not be everyone's cup of tea but I wanted a place to post any cool behind the scenes photos we stumble across. Martial arts movies only, of course. I'll get the ball rolling... Police Story 3 Fearless Hyena (2?) Once Upon a Time in China The 36th Chamber of Shaolin Righting Wrongs aka Above the Law Outlaw Brothers Fist of Legend

    I mean, come on. If Hollywood made He-Man gay, it wouldn't be that shocking.

    Gangs Of London (2019)

    I was anticipating this show before. The trailer has me extra-excited. This looks like it's going to be fantastic.
  20. I'm on board for a female version of Thor. Very much so. I just don't see Natalie Portman in an action role. But, then again, Alicia Vikander made a surprisingly solid Lara Croft so who am I to judge?
  21. This may be a huuuuuuuge stretch but the internet is buzzing so I thought I'd post it here. Devout Batman fans think the new bat-symbol is made from the gun that killed Bruce Wayne's parents.
  22. That's exactly what it is. While I thoroughly enjoyed the film, the actual Birds of Pretty very much play second fiddle to Harley Quinn. Mary Elizabeth Winstead gets almost nothing to work with.
  23. The Bride with White Hair - A somewhat tepid romance injected with a few action beats. Sadly, said action is marred by annoying slow motion and juddering. It's not a bad film, by all means. but it certainly isn't a classic for me. Ronny Yu should have gone for a longer run time as it all seems a bit rushed. A fine watch with some memorable ultra-violence, but not one I'll revisit on a regular basis.
  24. I loved this. Enjoyable characters, fantastic fight scene... What more do you want? it may not be the best DC movie but it’s up there with the best. I highly recommend supporting this one as it really is comic books done right.
  25. Haha! I’m sure many people do. It’s a wild ride that doesn’t make complete sense but it just didn’t do it for me. I’m itching to see more (good) Bruceploitation flicks as I’ve only just begun dipping my toe in the genre.
