  1. Does anyone know anything about this dvd label called Vengeance Video in UK? I surprisingly saw quite a few kung fu movies from the classic period that they have released, but i read a comment somewhere that their dvds is just like watching the VHS

    Chia Yung Liu

    I just saw Tigress of Shaolin and this guy (Chia Yung Liu) caught my attention, cos he's got that onscreen fun guy persona similar to guys like Fu Sheng. I was thinking why havent I heard of this guy before so I looked on internet and saw he's only featured in about 10 films, which is damn strange for someone with his family background, skills and likeable character. Does anyone know anything more about him or why he's only done so few films?

    Riots in London

    I see it's spread to other parts, nice to see ppl using death of someone as excuse to loot. People all over the world riot for their rights, their freedom, for their futures, and here there's riots to loot stuff
  4. Just bought: Along come a Tiger (rarescope) Killzone (cine-asia)
  5. Watched 3 seasons of Sons of Anarchy, and then comedy anime in the form of Beelzebub and gintama

    Action Comedies

    Dragons forever is prob my favourite, but Pantyhose Hero with Sammo Hung is hilarious
  7. After a LONG time i decided to check play.com and maybe buy some DVDs, and I got amazingly excited when I saw dead HKL titles for sale under cine-asia label, so excited that I came back here lol I'm now armed with a credit card too

    PC monitor as TV screen?

    When i didnt have DVD player in my room...i used to play DVDs on my computer, so if you have a DVD drive you can do that also
  10. simalirities seem to stem from aesthetics more than anything, and with that im not surprised. There is nothing between the two that can be compared...different eras...different sports...different everything.
  11. Theres quite a few (for me anyway), but i cant remember exactly. It's usually scenes where guy is killed and you wonder how is he dead. Dragon on Fire - final scene, Dragon Lee i think is running to help his brother who doesnt look like he needs it, they cut to Dragon Lee sprinting down the hill to reach the fight and his brother is somehow dead lool when 10 seconds ago he was kickin ass

  14. Welcome to the boards, nice first post compared to those damn bots It's a kool list, lot of shaw brothers and golden harvest titles. I'm sure theres guys on here who would probably have lists with lot of non-show or GH titles as well
  15. I had a strong feeling this film would be bullshit wen they announced it, and decided to never watch it whether i had to pay or otherwise, your review has solidified my view of not going to watch sh!t like this

  17. dnt wry he'll get put in a nice cushy low security prison
  18. Was actually pretty interesting tidbits of info there, especially that appreciation of Pakistan consulate

    Fifa World Cup

    Germany's football was nearly always straight to the point, they would play 10/11 men behind the ball when opposition have possession and as soon as they break it down they would counter attack straight away to score. Best counter attacking football from any team in long while. Only times it didnt work was against Serbia and Spain. But Spain were the better team, they control matches with their passing. Only criticism of Spain is that they try to walk the ball into the net. When there's a shooting opportunity they decide to pass, at times when there isnt a window to shoot and pass would be better option they take the shot

    Fifa World Cup

    Spain will win I think, and i hope they do, they by far play better football than spain. If Holland can stop the spanish midfield players doing their passing triangles then they will have a chance, but Holland have looked suspect at the back. If Uruguay had Suarez in that match I think they may have won as there were lots of gaps appearing in dutch defense and i think together with Forlan they would have exploited that or at the very least given the dutch lot more problems
  21. You would think this list would include movies that display exemplary martial arts not just any movie that has a bit of martial arts fighting, seems your right in saying the author has tried to put in a bit of everything. Blade in the top 10? Big Trouble in Little China in top 20? Come off it. They're good films but not cos they include some martial arts
  22. Forgot to put mine down. These are the guys who first got me into mainstream of kung fu films, so they will always be my favourites: Bruce Lee Jackie Chan Sammo Hung Jet Li Then after getting more into the kung fu film genre these guys are additional favourites: Yuen Biao Stephen Tung Wei Fu Sheng
  23. I did not know that about flouride, how i love the things industry are allowed to do with their waste products (*sarcasm*) and for once studying chemistry in A level paid off as i understood everything you said lol
  24. lol dnt worry bout it, this forum does have discussion topics on all martial arts, its just this one was particular to kung fu.
  25. Nice share easternfreak and happy birthday!
