  1. I think Mike Tyson being in part 3 left a bad taste in some people. That aside I think part 3 was a nice change from the nationalism that was all over in the previous two parts, and got to culminate Yip Man's relationship with his wife in a way that was shown little before and brought the movie to another level emotionally. It's a bit of a slow start in the beginning yes but as the story progresses, you get to see and understand what Yip and wife are going through and how the wife's suffering affects him and his overall priorities in life. All that, along with Max Zhang's subplot, is what makes the movie (action aside) great. Apart from making a statement of traditional MA in a modernized society with modern combat styles, I'm sot sure what Donnie/team will tell us this time but it's interesting to find out. And of course, watching the action. So I'm in.

  3. I can live with that. If I want quality nudity, I just turn to any of the usual porn sites on the net for free 😜😁
  4. If you're talking about Hong Kong, then yes. It dried out in the mid 90s when CGI and wirework took over. But in general, no. There's still quality movies being made. Just not in great numbers or quality.
  5. Donnie and Vincent never had any feud (not exactly anyway) at all... The real feud was between Vincent and the studio execs that financed the movie. Donnie was just a co-producer and he was actually the one who recommended Vincent to the investors, who on the other hand didn't want Vincent involved. When that went through however, the studio execs did everything in their power to reduce Vincent's screen time by changing the script and violating the clauses of his contract. That resulted in Vincent dropping out of the project. He later on held a press conference where he blamed the studio execs for poor treatment on-set, and tried to sue them to no success. To get back at them he, along with director Tan Bing (who claimed he was the one who wrote the script and that his ideas were stolen by the execs), came up with something to decrease box-office income upon release after completion of the movie: Making up accusations on the movie's biggest asset: Donnie. And hence, the accusations merely on Donnie where the studio execs were never mentioned again. As a result, Donnie sued Tan Bing and won the lawsuit. Both Vincent and Tan moved on and has since not been commenting anything. As for Vincent as a MA actor, he's great in his own right but never got roles to distinguish himself from his peers. He's always played roles made famous by other MA actors.
  6. Phenomenal artwork!!! That's creativity 😎👏
  7. Eastern Condors and Iron-Fisted Monk were greatly treated, with very few badly-timed subbed lines on the former movie. Otherwise, perfect releases!!! Now on to The Magnificent Butcher...
  8. Another teaser poster with Nicholas Tse.

  10. Interview with Donnie, conducted by Prestige. https://www.prestigeonline.com/hk/people-events/donnie-yen-is-the-man-of-action/
  11. Best way to describe this movie: Taxi Driver x The King of Comedy x DC Comics. Loved everything, especially Phoenix's performance. He's now top 3 Joker actors if all time imo, along with Ledger and Nicholson.
  12. Got my copy a few days ago. Checked out The Magnificent Butcher and Eastern Condors and I'm very impressed overall!
