  1. Didn't see a Sammo thread so had to make one. He is my favorute director, actor and choreographer. To me Bruce Lee and Sammo hung are the two legends, I'd say Sammo was the natural sucessor to Bruce Lee at GH, always being innovative. Some of my Sammo favorites include: Prodigal Son (all-time fave) Pedicab Driver The Victim Knockabout Eastern Condors Shanghai Express My Lucky Stars Encounters of the Spooky Kind The list goes on and on and on. I'm glad he is still working today as both an actor and a choreographer and he seems to be on good terms with both Yuen Biao and Jackie Chan so i am hoping for a project that features all three of them someday soon (There is always hope). Sadly Sammo (and probably many filmmakers in HK today in general) doesn't have the same influence that he once used to back in the Golden Harvest days, where he could just gather up an allstar cast and create fun big budget experiences complete with excellent action, impressive sets and location shooting. We might not get a film in the classic Sammo "Lunar new Year" film style anymore, or movies like Prodigal Son where the cast and crew spend a whole year on perfecting a martial arts film, but we still get to see Sammo delivering solid performances and excellent choreography. As happy as I am that Donnie Yen and Yuen Woo Ping are abck together, I really would ahve wanted Sammo to handle the action in Yip Man 3 as Sammo is the guy for Wing Chun choreography IMHO.
  2. I would love to know what some of your faves are regardless of country or subgenres. Some of my faves are: Halloween The thing A nightmare on elm street The innocents Last house on the left The others Dark water Alien Just to name a few!

    This is definitely my cup of tea. Thanks for starting this thread!
  7. I saw this movie yesterday. Let me know if you wanna know anything about it!
  8. If story of Ricky counts I would say it wins. Any others that come to mind?
  9. Earlier tonight I saw my favorite Bruce Lee film in the movie theater. I went with five of my friends (most of which had not seen the film previously) they all enjoy it. Sadly the version we watched was dubbed into English which did detract from the overall experience (I prefer the cantonese version). We all had fun seeing the movie and I hope the screening of classic martial arts films is something that will happen more often in Sweden.
  10. I'm gonna try to see it opening night too. It actually premieres on April 24th in Sweden so I'll see it a couple days before the US release I promise no spoilers though

    Chow Yun Fat Continues Filming Despite Head Wound

    A genuine legend of HK cinema. Such work ethic. A shame about the injury though, they need better safety on set!

    Happy international womens day

    To all the women of the forums and around the world ! Remember to show appreciation for the great women in your life,not just today but every day. Note: I realize it may not be March 8th yet for everyone but in my timezone it is!
  13. Nic Tse and Donnie Yen sounds cool. I think Nic Tse is like the DiCaprio of HK, a guy that always looks young and is a good actor.
  14. The only film Bruce Lee ever directed is coming to Swedish cinemas on April second. Martial arts classics on the big screen is unusual in Sweden so this is exciting news. If you live in Sweden go out and see it to show Sweden's largest (and only) cinema chain you want more of this stuff.

    Films about Sasaki Kojiro

    I find him just as interesting as Musashi but I cant seem to find any films centered on him as a character. Any recommendations,sites to get DVDs or anything else Kojiro related is appreciated. Thanks!

    Yamada Matabei sounds very interesting too! I have seen and own the Toshiro Mifune Musashi trilogy and Kojiro is naturally a major part of Duel at Ganry Island.

    Thank you! Sorry I didn't get a notification that anyone posted in this thread.
  22. Stephen Chow has said Kung Fu Hustle 2 is coming. What are your Hope's and/or concerns for this film? I personally want to see Ng Man Tat and Stephen Chow share the screen. I would also like Sammo as action choreographer though sadly that isn't likely.

    Happiest of birthdays to you both. @ShawAngela and @AgriWuxia
  24. Sammo Hungs grandmother was a famous actress and appeared in numerous films such as In The Mood For Love. She was also in early swordplay and martial arts films. Her name was Chin Tsi Ang. The following is from her wikipedia page: "when Chin was an infant a fortune-teller told her parents that to avoid an early death, she would have to be brought up as a boy. As a result, she was permitted to engage in activities usually reserved for males, although sometimes with her gender disguised. Chin began martial arts training at the age of eight,[4] later going on to perform all her own stunts as well as choreograph scenes"

    The Almighty Godzilla - King Of The Monsters!

    Thank you for sharing your opinion. I personally am not a fan of the Anime films and as for the 98 godzilla or Zilla as it is now known: I think it is an entertaining monster movie but a disappointing Godzilla film. I have nothing against seeing Zilla make brief appearances in Godzilla films like Final Wars either. Oh BTW, besides the 1954 film my favourite Godzilla film is Godzilla VS The Sea Monster AKA Ebirah:Horror Of The Deep, and I quite enjoy Godzilla VS Spacegodzilla, so my tastes might be a bit different from most G fans out there (I also dislike the Legendary Pictures Godzilla) :D
