    RIP Chen Sing

    Damn...I just found out. Chen Sing was an unforgettable and intimidating figure in kung fu cinema whether as hero or villain. With his rugged Bronson-esque looks and a well developed and muscular upper body, he stood out among his peers in kung fu films with his intense performances and exuded power and ferocity whenever he flexed his martial arts skill. He will always be remembered as one of kung fu cinema's well-known and beloved, "tough guys". RIP Chen Sing

    Brandon Lee - The Crow

    Wow, this is another blast from the past. I bought this issue back in high school. I so miss the days when magazines were less than $6...

    Loved Ones Lost

    My deepest condolences to you and your family for recent your losses. You know that I lost my father back in May and like your father, he was a Vietnam Veteran and he suffered from diabetes and other maladies as well, due in part to Agent Orange exposure. I'm not going to lie to you, I am still struggling every day trying to cope with my father's passing but having the support of my mom, my brother and other close friends has helped considerably. I know that processing grief and living with the pain takes time but I wish you comfort and wellness on this most difficult journey...

    Marathon Man (USA, 1976)

    Great movie. Sir Laurence Olivier was pure evil as Nazi doctor Christian Szell. This is one of the few movies that I liked better than the original novel.

    My Father...

    Thank you everyone. You have no idea how much I appreciate all the positive wishes, condolences, and your personal stories. I don't have many places on the web that I would call, "home" but this place to me is. For those who don't know I'm a holdover from back in the Kung Fu Cinema days when the late great Linn Hayes was there and before that I was part of the KFSS (Kung Fu Super Stars) Yahoo group. I never really was the most prominent poster but I was always so impressed with the wealth of knowledge and love of martial arts movies possessed by all of the wonderful people whom frequent here and I've learned so much from all of you. I'm trying to take it one day at a time and hopefully with time the pain will lessen and I just wanted to let you all know from the bottom of my heart, that I appreciate everything said here. Again, thank you...

    My Father...

    Early this morning, my father passed away at home... My father's health has declined considerably over the past 4 years and much of my time has been spent taking care of him and although I've been trying to mentally prepare myself for this inevitable conclusion, it seems you can't really prepare to lose a loved one. He meant everything to me and he was there for me my entire life. I'm trying my best to be strong for my family as they will need me to be but my heart is truly broken. I've mentioned it here a few times but for those who don't know, it is because of my father that I love martial arts movies. He enjoyed them and I enjoyed watching many of them with him for years, from those early days when we rented them on VHS at the video store, watching them on Saturday and Sunday afternoons on TV, to buying DVDs and it was one of the many things that we bonded over. He was a big fan of Bruce Lee, Sonny Chiba, Hwang Jang Lee, and although he wasn't the biggest fan of Shaw Bros stuff, he loved 5 Element Ninjas. Many of my favorite memories are of watching martial arts movies with my father. I'm not a religious man or very spiritual but I welcome all prayers, well wishes, alpha waves, and positive thoughts. The road ahead is going to be a very difficult one and I'm not sure what the future holds but I hope to find and maintain the strength to move on with my life without my father in it, whom I will miss forever...

    Find the Garfield phone!

    That is pretty freaky about the Garfield phones... Yes! The Golden Ninja Warrior is the ultimate prize! I would love to have it sitting on my desk...

    Bruce Lee's The Big Boss (Appreciation Thread)

    This bastard...Boss Mi's manager of the ice factory. I always hated that he didn't get a taste of Cheng Chao An's Fists Of Fury! He should've gone down like the rest of his goons...
