    WELCOME BACK! Questions & Answers Thread

    Great to be back. I miss 'Godfrey Ho Worshipper' and 'OpiumKungFuCracker' - Hope they show up. OKFC is on facebook so I can let him know. Does anyone have a means of letting GHW we are back in business? Thanks to whoever raised this sunken ship. Question do I upload pictures and you tube clips in the same old way??

    Rendezvous With Death

    (OK Sorry, I know and 3 years too late to this thread) My sentiments exactley BaronK. And no movie of his has characters as morally murky as in his masterpiece 'Deadly Breaking Sword' (Though most would say Avenging Eagle was his masterpiece) In that movie Fu Sheng seems blinded by his lust for money (culminating in throwing a lady down a well) Ti Lung seems blinded by Glory, ego and reputation. These are the characters we expect to root for. Yet Ku Feng the guy we are supposed to view as a villain has loyal followers that he treat with honour and respect.
  8. It's true about triad involvement. The Jet Li stuff was true, but it was mostly his manager involved not Jet personally. Anita Mui's manager was shot dead and she went on the Lam to USA then went into the safe arms of Jackie Chan and his manager upon return to Hong Kong. Wong Jing had his mouth smashed in by Triads for something he said. An actress was even raped by triads (I think it was Carina Lau). In 1993 after the incident involving Anita Mui's manager Jackie Chan along with a load of other Hong Kong celebrities staged a street demo march protesting against triad involvement in the industry. Not all triads but the bad ones (apparently). It is common knowledge that actors such as Chan Wei Man, Jimmy Wang Yu and Alan Tang have been directly involved with triads in the movie industry and Wang Yu famously 'pulling strings' to get Jackie Chan out of his contract with Lo Wei and Chan returning the favour owed by appearing in Fantasy mission force and Island on fire. A lot of celebs were having Willie Chan as a manager because triads would not bother with them as Jackie Chan was 'untouchable' by that time in the industry. But then they got to Willie Chan and he stopped managing them. Many actors were working with the 'Wins' film company to escape pressure from the triads as the owners of wins are former Triads themselves Jimmy Hueng and Charles Hueng http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Heung. There are those who openly have expressed their disapproval with triads. Most famously the former Police comissioner turned actor Phillip Chan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Chan who plays the police chief in hard boiled and winners and sinners and I guess is always type cast. He was in the media before his acting career for solving crime cases including Hong Kongs first ever armed bank robbery in 1974 where 11 hostages were held to ransom (sounds like a movie). I saw a section for a Channel Four show in about 2000/2001 with Emily Booth about Hong Kong movies and there was a brief interview with Danny Lee who expressed his distaste for real life triads as he appears in gangster flicks himself, and while on set of a movie he did something that led to triads being arrested. Director Johnny To clearly portrayed Triads realistically in Election 1 and 2 and to some extent Drug War. There was heavy anti triad and anti mainland corruption messages in the Election movies.

    Look what's coming! (Fallout 4, video game)

    Now edited. Cheers.
  12. This is my favourite Old Skool movie ever that was not produced by shaws or golden harvest. The only let down is that Hwangs trademark kicking was not on display. But I guess the director felt that had all been done before with the secret rivals movies.
  13. Officially announced. And an official trailer has also been released. Fallout 3 is my favourite game of all time, even better than Skyrim, Oblivion and New Vegas. I wish I could play it all over again for the first time. Sadly a time machine has not yet been invented for me to be able to have that experience. I guess the next best thing will be playing Fallout 4 for the first time.
  14. The Black Sheep Affair is below par for me too. And the Chinese propaganda in the movie makes me cringe. The action is pretty decent courtesy of Ching Siu Tung, but it doesn't have anyrthing else going for it. You mean you rate the black sheep affair over the Blade??!!
  15. £24 for those Kung Fu titles is ridiculous. £20.99 for Iron Angels 3 which is a sub par film is just a joke.
