  1. I have a zine column devote to these cut and paste "wonders". I'm really loving this thread...
  2. I hate myself for forgetting it, but what was the name of that sci fi film that Shaw Bros. produced in the 80s? It was posted once on Facebook (including the trailer) and not mentioned again.
  3. It's about as much of a martiial arts pic as a mid 80s Super Sentai series. But it's fun, so I vote to keep it in.

    your top ten Jimmy Wang Yu movies.

    Tiger Boy... kidding... One Armed Boxer tops it for me. After that in no particular order: Return of the One Armed Swordsman Zatoichi Meets the One Armed Swordsman The Magnificent Chivalry The Brave and the Evil Furious Slaughter Beach of the War Gods Four Real Friends Master of the Flying Guillotine Fantasy Mission Force Haven't seen every single one of Jimmy's films, but I've seen most of them.

    Abbot White 2 aka Deadly Finger Kung Fu

    Bigrogie has it: http://www.ioffer.com/i/kung-fu-deadly-fingers-meng-fei-david-chiang-dvd-1982-491247238
  6. Excluding the obvious Sammo/Jackie stuff, which films do you consider to contain the hardest hitting and most realistic kung fu combat? By this I mean battles where in addition to displays of various shapes, it looks at least somewhat like the combatants are genuinely beating the stuffing out of each other.
  7. Thanks for the feedback, some good stuff in here. Of the ones mentioned, I haven't yet caught up with The Handcuff (but intend to soon) and don't think I ever heard of Successor. The clip above looks kind of awesome, is the rest of it any good?
  8. I preferred The Fearless Hyenna over either of them, personally.

    Runtime of the uncut Big Boss... potentially...

    Keep checking those old pd vhs tapes; one of them does contain some extra gore (the table saw going through the body early on, Bruce's discovery of his slain cousins). I rented it back in the early 80s and it nearly made me lose my lunch as I was unprepared for it. God how I wish I kept (stole) that rental or at least, made a dupe of it back then. Been searching for it ever since with zero luck (as you'd imagine).
  10. In my ever expanding search for new stuff, I found myself looking up the Alexander Lo Rei film, "21 Red List". In doing so, I came accross another Lo Rei film from the same year, "Revanchist" that also looks pretty cool. Has anybody seen "Revanchist" and for that matter, how does it compare to "21 Red List"? Me needs to know...
  11. This is one of those films that I never upgraded from an old vhs dupe that I've had since around 1990. It recently ran on TV and I noticed that even though it was edited, it included more than my tape did. Still haven't gone Blu (extreme budgetary reasons) and I was curious that out of the several dvd releases, which was the most complete (or more accurately, least incomplete)?
  12. I'll 2nd this and I'm not even a Stephen Chow fan. Very inventive film and for once, the man made me laugh... hard. THAT'S MONEY starring Yukari Oshima and Kara Hui is another that deserves more attention. Funny, sexy (kind of) and features plentiful fights; some of the best in either ladies' careers.
  13. Scariest film I ever saw was and still is Night of the Living Dead (original). I get creeped out just thinking about it. No other film has ever done that to me. Most disturbing is a tossup between Eraserhead and Cannibal Holocaust, for different reasons.

    WELCOME BACK! Questions & Answers Thread

    A little late to the table here, but I'm really digging the new look and am relieved that the old info has been recovered. Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway) a great big thanks to those responsible... and stuff

    Crippled Avengers review by the Cinema Snob

    That guy's a riot. Even when he's dissing a film I love (which isn't often the case), I can't help but laugh.

    My Top 10 Movie Car Chase Scenes

    Oh yeah, they're as good and intense as anything Hollywood was putting out at the time ('70s). The Italian Connection (La Mala Ordina) is a good one to start with as it's just a great overall film.

    My Top 10 Movie Car Chase Scenes

    The mid-film car chase in Aces Go Places 2 is Top 10 worthy, me thinks.
  18. So, I dragged my feet about getting this one and of course, it's now no longer available. If anyone out there is looking to get rid of theirs or has an extra copy they wish to sell, please PM me. Thanks!
  19. Been eyeing the German dvd for a while now, but am wondering just how much better looking it is vs the British release from Showbox Home Entertainment (which is available for far cheaper). Can anybody here compare and contrast the two and/or is there an even better print out there? Believe it or not, I STILL haven't upgraded it in my collection from the vhs print.
  20. Thanks for the info! Glad I waited. Just ordered it on Amazon.comGermany. For some reason, the postage rates dropped dramatically from Germany to the U.S. and it was suddenly affordable.
  21. Thanks Killer Meteor. Well, i can get it used for US $5 including postage so what the hell. I can always double down for the German print later. Just glad to hear it's in widescreen.
  22. Found a trailer for a Japanese movie called "Judo vs Karate". Looks like it was made in the '60s. Can anybody shed any light on this film? Very unusual to see a mostly empty hand martial arts film from this period! Pj1Hbct8UP0
  23. Legendary Weapons of China is pretty tough to beat. King Boxer is as "in your face" as it gets.
