    Agree with LKL having the bet fight choreography at Shaws hands down. That said, his films aside from the action tended to be hit or miss, with a increasing reliance on comedy. In my own perfect world, I would've had LKL choreograph the films of Sun Chung. Despite his lower output, Sun Chung made better FILMS, all around. The only area he was lacking was in the intricacy of his fight scenes. Not taking away anything from Chung's go to fight man, Tang Chia, but I think no one would argue that his specialty were weapons, not the hand-to-hand stuff. Imagine LKL teaming up with his old partner on stuff like Avenging Eagle, Kung Fu Instructor, TKAM, etc? It would've made those classics even more enduring IMO.

    Shaw Brother BD's from T.V.P.

    Haven't been on here in a long while so first thing I needed to address is Bob's amazing work on the Delightful Forest cover! Brilliant!!

    List of Celestial SB movies on iTunes

    I know that there were issues with the dubs to Martial Club & Black Magic 2 - hence the fan supplied dubs for earlier DVD releases - but there's really no excuse for not including the dub for Kid With a Tattoo. It was screened with the dub in South Africa within the last several years. Too bad. Was really looking forward to that one. Oh well. At least the original mono soundtrack is there. I honestly don't know how anyone could've sat through those "remixed" 5.1 jobs with the newly added fx & music. Now that proper versions are finally trickling out here and there via BluRay & iTunes, etc., those "remixed" versions should all be rounded up and burned or tossed into the sea.

    Thank you!!!

    Rendezvous With Death

    You could always tell that Sun Chung put a little extra time and care into making his films. Perhaps that's why he made so few compared to some of his contemporaries. I agree that the final fight in Rendezvous was lacking. Other than that, great fun. Need to revisit Proud Youth soon.

    I used the actual track names from the original library records. "Guerrilla" was part of a military-themed LP which had many other tracks used in these films. Thanks for the kind words, people!

    SHAWS on itunes

    It says on iTunes that the English dub is included. It's also played in English on the El Rey network - along with several other once rare dubs.

    SHAWS on itunes

    Yes. Ditto that. Thanks for these updates Chemical Lemon. Just wish Celestial themselves would be more on the ball with this stuff. The fact that they're not - after all these years - is sadly indicative of a lot of what's been wrong with the marketing of these movies in the west from the very beginning. Double sigh.

    The Alexander Fu Sheng Thread

    Always wondered if it was the same white Porsche that he drives in Hong Kong Playboys.

    Good news! I believe all of those have been on El Rey with the exception of Buddha's Palm. Will be interested to it dubbed.

    Thai Posters for Shaw Movies

    Nice collection of posters! I like how some cast members of a film might be more prominently featured depending on the market, etc. One example: Simon Yuen's image on the 1 sheet for Heroes of the East is blown up and thrown back on there a couple of times - and he's barely in the film! On another note, I noticed that Heroes of the East is referred to on the poster by another English title - "Chinese Boxer Part II". Same retitle on my original HK poster too. I wonder what the deal was with that? Any ideas?

    The Teako-Shaw Signature Collection grows!

    Glad to be of help kind sir! Loving the Thai Venoms poster. I think we've probably talked about this before but I always loved the illustrations on the Thai posters. Now if only I could stomach their written language. I hate how their characters look! lol Wondering if you hid that part of the one sheet on purpose! And what's up with cheap stock on Thai posters?? Anyway, all that said, I'll still take it off your hands if you ever get tired of it.
