    Imperial Tomb Raiders found!

    I can't look up the box office, but this may have cost some money and tanked, so there might not be the interest in putting it out. Most of what comes out is either with the 5 Shaolin Masters, Lau Kar Liang stuff and way too many of the Venoms, so a lot of these do not get the proper treatment. Just glad we found it.
  2. I saw this one at the Lux, and he gets killed by someone he technically outclasses (and he has some gal helping) I want to say Chen Sing, who looked very stiff but somehow comes out on top while Tan throws kicks that most 4th degree black belts could only dream of at the time. Not a good flick, I think the scene was at a beach.

    Imperial Tomb Raiders found!

    I've been looking for this one for years. Always a fan of those lost treasure movies, and now it is back. Just did the sub timings, and my friend is going to translate for me. Lee Tso Nam was assistant director, for a bit of trivia. Fights are good, gun fu, arrow fu. Ear rolls...LOL! Anyway, can't wait to get this subbed!

    Thunderclap Remaster

    Somebody creative could grab it and fix a lot of that, including the bars. That being said, they will probably release it at some point. They are probably testing the waters for interest. The black bars are so you want to buy the bluray or VOD.

    Thunderclap Remaster

    It has been remastered but no English subs. On YouTube for free.
  7. Honestly looks like the Philippines. Phillippino's really like martial arts, even before the kung fu craze. Lots of Kempo and Kajukenbo practitioners were Phillipino's from Hawaii, etc. Quite a few really cheap movies were made over there for both the Asian and overseas markets. Production costs were low.

    Angry Rant: You Know What's Bullshit? Blu Ray Encryption

    I'm telling you, companies are owned by the same people. Sony makes movies and Blu Ray players. Why let anyone own anything? Just force them to rent, well everything.
  9. Well he was a Tae Kwon Do competitor in the USA in college. On the other hand, he said Tan and Liu were obviously better kickers, hence the southern fist parts. My old Tae Kwon Do instructor saw Hot Cool and Vicious and had met Wong when he did a stunt for Yellow Faced Tiger and remarked "That guy was a Tae Kwon Do guy!" !
  10. It's worse, and there's a lot of reasons why. One is the PRC's nationalism makes most of the stuff hard to take, add the CGI to it and it can get really excruciating. What made these films popular (compared to say, Samurai films) is that these guys and gals were the underdogs, taking it to the man. Now films are full of revisionist history as if the 100 years of shame never happened and all the "heroes" are elites. At the same time, stuff like this is happening. A LOT.

    Angry Rant: You Know What's Bullshit? Blu Ray Encryption

    I got the Oppo second hand on craigs list for $30 from some Russian fellow that wanted to start reading again.

    Slickers VS Killers at long last!

    I don't know about Pantyhose hero/killers. That is not showing up on VOD so far. Could be ownership issues, etc. Lots of Sammo stuff getting remastered, but so far, not this one. Touch and Go was pretty good. All I see on VOD Pantyhose is that awful worn out print from VHS.

    Slickers VS Killers at long last!

    The thing is giving me grief to transition into a DVD9 or Blu Ray. I will figure it out with a little help from my friends. Plays fine as an MKV.

    Angry Rant: You Know What's Bullshit? Blu Ray Encryption

    Saving to a hard drive and an Oppo player connected to the TV? All these blu rays and regions are so people can't share things. Now, the goal is to not even have DVD's, blu rays or whatever and just have to pay a bunch of subscriptions to see movies and shows.The goal of our corporate overlords is that we rent everything. Even home ownership is designed so that most people in the USA "buy" a house, pay a bunch of interest and have to sell it again so they can pay their medical bills. Anyway, rant over. Good luck. My Sony only plays certain things, I just use the Oppo now.
