Kung-fu / Martial Arts & Hong Kong Movies on UK Television

Recommended Posts

Ah right, that's what confused me. It's good that there are so many old school-esque films on at the moment.

But Sammo did also direct the last instalment of the OUATIC series, Once Upon a Time In China and America.

Martial Arts Season on Film4: 

Quote

From Friday 15th January Film4 brings you Martial Arts gold, a season dedicated to kung fu classics from Hong Kong’s legendary Shaw Brothers studio.

Our season begins with The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and continues for the next three Friday nights, with King Boxer (featuring superstar Lieh Lo), Come Drink with Me (directed by martial arts maestro King Hu) and the original One-Armed Swordsman, from director Cheh Chang. A second season – including Five Deadly Venoms and The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter – will follow in March and April. All films are in their original aspect ratio, and original language with English subtitles.

 

Here's the website with a trailer :smile

 Yeah on "Dave" :wink

 

Notice these films are to be the same ones released by Dragon Dynasty DVD. So I am guessing some of these DD/Shaws will be shown at some point:

  • My Young Auntie
  • Heroes of the East
  • Return to the 36th Chamber
  • Return of the One-Armed Swordsman
  • The Return Of The 5 Deadly Venoms AKA Crippled Avengers
  • Shaolin Mantis
  • Disciples of the 36th Chamber
  • Five Shaolin Masters
  • Executioners from Shaolin
  • Mad Monkey Kung Fu
  • Martial Arts of Shaolin
  • Golden Swallow
  • Blood Brothers
  • Killer Clans
  • The Avenging Eagle
  • Flying Guillotine
  • Flying Guillotine II

*Fingers crossed*

They must be showing these in April, as they only have Come Drink With Me & One Armed Swordsman left to screen for the first run of films.

I caught the last 10 mins of the final Master (2015) on sky tv's Propeller Tv channel on sky 189 on Monday 05 th june.

Gutted I missed this one, the alley fight that was posted on the forums back in 2015 looked really good, and the style of choreogrpahy was pretty unique too.

Indeed, thanks for mentioning this @sifu iron perm. It seems their showing both The Raid 1 & 2.

The Raid is being shown on the 9th June (2017) at 00:25-02:25 (BST) on Film4.

And The Raid 2 is being shown at the time you mentioned (9th June 2017 at 22:45-01:40 BST on Film4).

http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-raid-2

I've set both movies to record. Should be interesting to see an Indonesian movie for the 1st time.

Seems the Radio Times magazine gave some good coverage:

(I'll stick these in a scrapbook if I like the movies).

 

And here is 2 overviews from TV:
