    Super Sentai Series/Power Rangers Thread

    From the Shout! Factory Twitter account - July 11, 2019 - from Shout! Factory - "We have no Sentai releases in the works currently [for DVD release]. We'll make a huge announcement if that changes. Stay tuned!" and someone speculated "I think Hasbro told them to stop for just now and I think the reason is because Hasbro need to sort out the paperwork then I think we'll eventually [hear] about the next release which originally was planned to be Fiveman."
  2. I found a very nice poster for Skylin3s on Yayan Ruhian's Facebook page, posted November 7, 2019 - - along with "aka SKYLINES aka SKYLINE 3 aka BEYOND SKYLINE 2 aka THE CHRONICLES OF ROSE CORLEY coming Christmas 2020." The IMDB page is https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9387250/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt What I couldn't find out is if Yayan Ruhian is in the cast of this one.
  3. https://cityonfire.com/kung-fu-jungle-helmer-teddy-chen-is-back-with-double-world/ Cityonfire.com recently posted the news about the latest martial arts movie Teddy Chen (Bodyguards and Assassins) has directed.

    First Love (2019) - Takashi Miike's Latest

    Well Go USA gives First Love a North American Blu-ray release on February 11, 2020. Info at https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/First-Love-Blu-ray/246842/ Also at https://cityonfire.com/takashi-miike-to-direct-yakuza-cop-triad-actioner-first-love/
  7. The animated White Snake (Bai She Yuan Qi) is getting a U.S. Blu-ray + DVD release from Shout Factory on February 4, 2020. Info at https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/White-Snake-Blu-ray/256894/
  8. Two more movies with martial arts fights and sci-fi elements: Bumblebee - When Bumblebee is fighting the two evil Decepticons at the end of the movie, to keep them from transmitting a message off-world to summon a Decepticon army, the combatants are using robot martial arts. In the earlier battles, Bumblebee, being so much smaller, keeps getting beat up by the Decepticons. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw - As with Bumblebee, the cyber-enhanced Brixton (Idris Elba) beats the crap out of Hobbs and Shaw in their earlier encounters, but in the final fight, they figure out how to defeat him by fighting as a martial arts team. Reboot looks like it fits the definition as well, with Vin Diesel playing a nanotech warrior. He fights some guy who has extra robotic arms, like Doc Ock. It's gotta be better than Upgrade, a real chore to sit through (watching on HBO).
  9. How about starting with a search for "Wu Dang" or "wu dang" with the two words enclosed in quotation marks?
  10. Movie Review of The Mystery of Dragon Seal at https://asianfilmstrike.com/2019/10/08/the-mystery-of-dragon-seal-aka-viy-2-aka-journey-to-china-the-mystery-of-iron-mask-2019-review/ "Who could have imagined that two of the most iconic movie stars in the world, Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, would one day share the screen not in a Hollywood buddy movie, but in a Russian-Chinese fantasy swashbuckling adventure vaguely derived from Nikolai Gogol, in which Arnie would play a British warden, and the two would have a swordfight?... The Mystery of Dragon Seal is obviously modeled on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise: same merging of fantasy with swashbuckling tropes, same structure of parallel adventures all joining in one place for a grand finale, same multi-cultural cast with a fake British anchoring... Long Story Short: Come for Jackie and Arnie, stay for Jacie and Arnie. The rest has some inspired production design and action, but is derivative, abstruse and occasionally cheap."
