FORUM SCHEDULED DOWNTIME

For those unaware, the launch of 36STYLES.COM is coming next week! This means we will be moving the forum to its new home. The new link to the forum will be https://www.36styles.com/kungfufandom ... bookmark it now!

The site as a whole, including the forum, will be down on Monday, March 2. To minimize the forum downtime, I plan on bringing the forum back online, even before implementing the new features, as setting these up will probably take some time. I will send out an email to all registered members once the forum is back up. 

Some exciting times are ahead for KUNG FU FANDOM!

why limit this to just films he directed? Why not any film he had any role in making the movie? Be it director, action choreographer or acting! and for the record Alberts original post didn't say only films directed by LKL

It's not exactly top ten worthy.

I rewatched Drunken Monkey over the weekend, and also Heros of the East, yea, I see what you mean. I forgot how much I loved HotE. Awesome movie, I really liked the Gordon Liu interview included, ..but it put a lump in my throat:sad:, I liked the LKL tribute as well.
