  1. A thread to discuss all things Ti Lung...films, characters, etc. English interview: and the interview from the Water Margin http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x28ny7u_elegant-trails-ti-lung_creation A nice Facebook fan club https://www.facebook.com/TiLung.Fans also a tumblr by the same person http://naomiriam.tumblr.com Ti snuck up on me, it's his acting as much as his martial ability. And yes he's very handsome, but that to me is the icing on the cake. I can watch him in pretty much anything.
  2. Why not? I love these guys (especially Lu Feng, Lo Mang and Kuo Chui.) I'll start with Lo Mang. In an effort to try and track down the Lo Mang appearances I inquired about yesterday, I found an Asian piece which includes a photo of a http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/supplement/culture/art/20071107/10387078 13 year old Lo and pictures of the Lifetime Achievement Award he was given in Phily. There are some other great images too including a 'drag' moment. I wish I would have known about the Philly appearance I would have gone. Lo Mang appeals to me not just because of his awesome mantis skills but I love that he always throws himself into a role 100%. Sure he can be over the top (Crippled Avengers is a wonderful example), but when given a chance to be more serious he'll run with it. In fact, he wound up being my favorite character in Human Lanterns and Secret Service of the Imperial Court. And he makes Brave Archer 2 and 3 even more fun/understandable for me. It's pretty cool that Ti Lung gave Lo the inspiration to leave numbers behind and get in front of the camera. I am glad Lo is still active today.

  3. Woohoo! So glad he is in this... Official cast photo below. http://www.insidethemagic.net/2015/08/d23-expo-2015-star-wars-news-episode-ix-director-rogue-one-cast-star-wars-stories/

    February Mutual Review Thread

    yup CS is the older of the 2 young priests. I was very confused by which Venom was which for awhile (for me it was Sun and Kuo) and I still miss a lot of folks I know already too.

    Nope, Secret you were right. Ricky Chien is the mustached priest leading the army of gyonsis into the temple in the opening scene. He is subsequently bit by Lu. Chiang Sheng with his droopier mustache is Chien's student and more experienced of the two younger priests who try to come to Ricky's aid. Lu also does double duty as the Tong Gai-looking priest who wants the baby gyonsi for his own nefarious means. and yes the human kids were annoying as all get out in this...

    Daredevils (1979)

    Can't confirm it, my IVL has English subs don't know about the Thai version. If this was me, I'd email YesAsia directly. The only Thai Shaws I have is The Kung Fu Instructor which has English subs, not a dub.
  7. Thanks, I'll check youtube to see if someone posted it online.

    Thanks for the update, I don't have left / right options on my home mouse.

    Positioning an image within a post

    Dear Abbot and friends, I've been using the wonderful drag and drop feature to insert photos into my posts. Is there a way to specifically position a photo within a post (such as above or below certain text?) I edit posts and will sometimes add an image later on. Is the drag and drop the only way to insert images? Thanks!

    That was cute. The cat gets some good kicks in...

    Lu's Taoist priest reminded of Tong Gai! How nice of him to give the little baby gynosi clothes, but there's a reason for that. Bad Lu Feng emerges (would we expect anything less?) Bummed to see Ricky Chien's priest bite it so soon. He was fun. This was an enjoyable, thanks for the review. If you want a good and much funnier follow up, Fight Among the Supers (which Lu steals from Chiang Sheng.)

    Conan the Conqueror (2017)

    Maybe this isn't a good time to admit, I like Grace Jones (she absolutely stole the Eddie Murphy movie "Boomarang") - And yet I don't remember Conan The Destroyer...but after James Earl Jones as Thulsa Doom why would you want to remember anything beyond that first film.

    Yes, my enjoyment of schlocky films knows no bounds. I'm trying to picture Lu as a gyonsi and cracking up sight unseen. BTW, Ricky Chien is also the lead in Five Elements Ninjas too.

    I nearly melted when I came across that last night. He was adorable right out of the gate.

    Positioning an image within a post

    Thanks, Master. Appreciate the response but it's not what I'm looking for. I do not have access to image hosting space now and would rather upload images here directly. In that sense, I see no code within yours which allows for specific positioning within a post. From experience I know that takes a bit more under the hood mao shan hoodoo (Sorry Abbot!)

    Many thanks for the great review, Secret. Sounds like a wonky movie. I will have to bookmark that link to watch this when I get home, it doesn't sound like Lu tops his hilarious performance in Fight Among The Supers (1985), but dang it, Lu as a gyonsi is just too delightful to ignore. Looking forward to this one, but now I better get back to work, lest some little kid kicks my butt.

    Pffft...somewhere in the world it already was (that's what I told myself anyway!) With a great review like the pne you posted, why worry, sir?
  18. So you figured out my secret love of schlock! Good heavens (ducks under computer desk)... This forum is amazingly amazing and I appreciate the info, reviews you and so many others here provide. For someone who was seriously rusty with her Shaws and knew very little of the many wonderful old school indies and performers, I've learned a lot in the past 9 months. I agree with you and Pops' about martial competitions and I love made up styles as much as I do real ones. I know very few real styles or performers, but if the person can sell me on their character and skills, I'm in. I also love satire/humor and slapstick (I was weaned on British comedy and Peter Sellers so I veer toward smart, silly and painful.) I realize some of Sammo's humor might be lost on me due to cultural differences (although hopping gyonsi never fail to make me chuckle), so I need a very obvious visual for his humor. I think if the film left out the quasi-serious and nasty elements (you can do gore and be hilarious - hi Evil Dead 2!), I'd probably be cheerleading it and Peter all over the place (despite my wizard snob.)
  19. @AlbertV Thanks for the heads up on the Kumite. I've glanced at that film sideways a lot due to the not so nice reviews, but if it means seeing Ti Lung doling out more Wing Chun, I'll definitely give it a look.

    What is the most recent Shaw Brother's film you've seen?

    @Tex Killer I think Wang Lung Wei was another Shaws vet who came in with no formal martial arts skills, but I could be wrong. I think the doubles record was broken for Ching Li in Brave Archer 3; but since she isn't a martial artist or trained and I didn't like her character, it didn't bother me as much as Ku Feng in The Avenging Eagle. Started watching Five Shaolin Masters again and was happily surprised to see... Leung Kar Yan.
  21. Yes sir. LOL. That's priceless. And my quarter-ass photoshop skills are so rusty, that's why I use Pixelmator now. @Secret Executioner Of course we need Ti Lung smilies and emoticons (a la Bruce Lee here.) These are great. Oh, LOL. That black and white shot I posted last night, Ti's wearing a smiley necklace LOLOLOL. It's a sign.

    The Revenger 金劍 (1980)

    I wouldn't mind a complete copy, mine goes kaput shortly after the 60 minute mark. Thanks for the images / info @teako170
  24. Digging through what I've gleaned on the internet, I've found some hilariously cheesy ones, but I like that shot you found (nicking it.)

    Something else they never get credit for Doomsdaypinic's page of Clan Feuds gifs and their Kung Fu Instructor batch and Pursuit of Vengeance (who knew footsie was big back then too?)
