Hey I am from St. Louis Missouri, USA, been a fan since I was a baby in the late 70s, what's funny is that I thought those Martial Arts films I was watching on Black Belt Theater were decades old, I would of never known they were brand stanking new. Anyway I started collecting in 2000 when I sought to revisit my childhood, I came across 5 deadly Venoms and Return of the 5 Venoms (Crippled Avengers) at Blockbuster of all places and that set me off on collecting craze that still continues 6 years later.

Name: SDP

Location: Pacific Northwest

First Kung fu movie: Half a Loaf of Kung Fu - Jackie Chan

Favorite Kung Fu: Dirty Kung Fu, Crippled Avengers, Taoism Drunkard, anything with Elton Chong, HJL, Gordon Liu, any campy type of movie, or Kung Fu horror.

Favorite non Kung Fu: Seven Samurai, Braveheart, LOTR trilogy, Conan the Barbarian, Barefoot Gen, Young Frankenstien, etc...

Been collecting since 1988, thats when my uncle went to prison for a 25 year stretch and left me with his collection, a mix of about 300 tapes and laser discs. In 1995 I joined the military and my collection totaled about 600 movies.

When i finally came home 7 years later, i found out that the best friend i entrusted my movies with, had sold all but 10 movies. Over the years i built on those 10 movies untill i had about 70, found this forum 2 years ago... and now i have 830 movies.

I practiced Tae Kwon Do for 15 years until i broke my back this past year in an ATV accident. My collection came in handy when i was stuck in a bed with nothing to do.

Guest sikmao

Howdy y'all, Sikmao here,

my 1st flick to see was 5 Fingers of Death. (i didn't really like this one tho', & i passed over it, when it was re-released.)

i've been into KF flix since the late 70's. i think it was "Rendezvous of Death" that really got me started!!! & when the "Venoms" came on the scene, it was all over!!! (my innocence, that is!)

i've got about 300+ DVD's & way too many VHS to count!

i've been doing MA, for over 30yrs now! (yet, i'm only 25!!!;) hahahaha!) i practice HUNG FUT Kuen & CHEN style TaiJi.

i live in Frisco, Cali now, but grew up in NYC.

i really LOVE this forum & being able to read & discuss all these wonderful topics! mostly, i get stuff from CD-Wow, lately. occasionally i'll go to Chinatown to see if there's anything i've missed.

word.

Peace everyone! I just joined the forum but have been checking it out since 04'. I'm from Brooklyn NY and have been watching Kung Fu movies for over 25 yrs. I used to go to the Rugby, Granada and Kennmore theaters back in the late 70's and early 80's in East Flatbush (for those who know what I'm talking about) ,"The Duece" and Chinatown. I used to collect VHS when that started fading out, some of the places I would get tapes are: Karate Center, 43rd Chamber (who before that were on 42 st). My favorite are Shaw Brothers, but I also love many of the independent flix. I took a hiatus from collecting in 97' but when they started to remaster the Shaw collection I jumped back in with both feet. Over the years I have accumulated over 350 vhs and about 600 dvd. I love this forum, it is the only place I can come and feel normal about this obsession we all here seem to have!!!:rollin

Guest the dirty tiger

I am in england, first film I saw was Project A when it was on British tv around abouts 1990 I guess, then forgot about it for a few years. In 1994 I borrowed some Jackie Chan / Lo Wei films from my sisters friends boyfriend ( thanks Keith ! ) and saw his awful bootleg of Eastern Condors. The first films I bought were Dragon Fist, Operation Condor,Police Story 2 and 3 - still love Operation Condor and the whole PS series and Eastern Condors is one of the best ever !!!! Been a mad collector since then. Have around 2500 or more films, many many posters, many many many lobbies, hundreds of magazines, a shelf full of books as well as other nicknacks. Published 5 issues of my own short lived mag around 2002 - 03. Bought very little lately as planning to move to Asia soon. Might sell off a lot of my odd bits soon so I have less to move.....If I knew back then what I know now then I wouldnt have bought half the old VHS, VCD and LD I have, you young 'uns dont know how easy you have it since the advent of DVD and the second 'boom' brought about by Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon....Not that I am complaining, it is great that so many rares are becoming not rare any more, just annoyed at the money I wasted before... :D

Kung fu 750, for years I thought I was the only collector in Kansas. Anyway, looks like I have the biggest collection in the state. I've got around 250-300 movies, been into kung fu movies since 2001 I think.

I got into this when a friend gave me Ric Meyer's book after hearing I liked Jackie Chan. First old school movie I remember getting is Legendary Weapons.

I host Kung Fu Fridays here in Kansas every Saturday night at my apartment.

I get my movies from DDDhouse, Hkflix, occasionally from Yesasia, Sensasian, Deepdiscount, Suncoast, and from dollar bins at grocery stores.

Hello everyone my profile is long overdue, i have been a member since 03 and have been into kung fu flicks most of my life. I grew up going to the movies and drive in theaters with my father to see these ficks as a child during the late 70's. (i remember one of the films we went to see was infra-man) During the 80's I taped everything I could off of black belt theater (channel 69 in Atlanta) and later I bought washed out tapes of shaws, independents from anyone I could. After watching these films as a child, teenager and a grown man I got burned out. Im a fan of world cinema and my interest expanded into spaghetti westerns, samurai films, galli, cult you name it but eventually I came back to my old love kung fu flicks. Im just getting back in the game and im in the process of rebuilding my collection btw my favorite film is The Hot, The Cool and The Vicious

Hello, kung fu filmfans, i've been collecting since around 1981, my first two films were VHS copies of Fist of Fury, and The Big Boss, by a company i no longer remember the name, however, these tapes were good quality, and the films were cut. I then found a store here in Chicago, where i live and this guy had 1000's of Martial Arts films on VHS! I 've been collecting every since then. In '98 i started on DVD's and currently have over 600 DVD's and 500 VHS. The Shaws remasters have been a gem, and with home theater Dolby Digital audio has really improved the experience, though many complained about the 5.1 remixed audios and the company stopped including the tracks on the releases in the last twelve months. That was a drag for me but the film quality has never looked better.

Let's talk Kung Fu.....!!!!!!!!

I went to see Five Fingers of Death the first week it opened.proceded to see every KungFu movie that came in it's wake. Back then the films were all rated R, being 12, I worked a deal with the theater usher at the local grind house in New Haven, Connecticut. He would let me in the back door of the theater for two bucks every Saturday. Most of the movies that played were bashers, I still love basher flicks to this day. In 1988, I stumbled onto a wall of Ocean Shores videos at the local shop, and there was "Karado the Hong Kong Cat" I was back in heaven and have been collecting ever since.This is the best community on the web for Kung Fu movies. Keep up the good work.

It has been noticed that some members have not been posting for a while and we don't know if they made it public that they'll be taking time out or perhaps it had something to do with unexpected circumstances preventing them from doing so.We know some have changed their user names and avatars and are still with us but in any case we are concerned that all is well with those who have been absent for a while.However if they are ok but choose to browse anonymously it will be good for them to give a nod to this thread just so we know that all is ok.Also if anyone knows about the situation of some members who are out of reach we would be grateful if you could shed light on their well being.The few names (please forgive the misspelling of usernames) that come to mind at the moment are:

More names to come.Cheers.

Wasn't it The Big Rascal who posted that he'd lost all interest in the genre, to the extent of even wanting to sell off his whole collection?

Isfahani still posts occasionally, I think a good hopping vamp, or of ilk, thread usually tempts him out.

Even old Sevenhooks seems to have bolted somewhat.

If I was a regular at a forum and planning on leaving for even a while - let alone permanently - I would make a post saying so. Saves anyone asking or being concerned about me. I'm so considerate aren't I? :b

I ran across a recent post of his over @ IMDb, so he's still out there.

Traded emails with him several times last week. He's been over in China working on The Mummy 3.

I saw a post of his here about a week ago.

Ditto.

Always a great contributor. Been wondering where he got to.
