Colecovision fight!

I used to regularly read a kung fu films forum on which so many of the hardcore fans/collectors who posted there would regularly grouse about films of this ilk (e.g., see also Battle Wizard, which I think turned up on here recently).

I never understood why they had such beef with the fun, goofy-ass aspects of some of these flicks.

Anyhow, there's not much Shaw Brothers non-opera stuff that I don't dig. Don't even get me started on Hong Kong Playboys, in which Alexander Fu Sheng blasts around town in a Lamborghini. Eighties fucking gold.

This is a classic fanboy gripe. If something isn't EXACTLY LIKE THE ONES YOU LIKED AS A KID then it fucking sucks.

It's a rule: The hardest of the hardcore fanboys actually always have terrible taste in whatever they specialise in. This applies to everything - comics, animu, genre fiction, genre music, videogames, cars, computers etc. etc. They at useless at everything, even fandom.

The funny thing is that Hong Kong was producing this kind of wuxia flicks since the early 60s, same magic rays and everything. Fantastic and over-the-top flicks have always beeing something common in Hong Kong cinema. Wuxia "serious" nerds are indeed, like any other "serious hardcore" fandom, a bunch of boring silly people with no actual connection with the media they love, just in love with this image they build themselves of being know-it all douches.

Shades of Anakin.

Hmm, Lucas would NEVER lift his ideas from other source material!

Is their power level over 9000?

"Oh, hey, I have a real sword!"

*stab*

A bit of context: that guy betrayed the guy that he stabbed.

Battle Wizard is indeed up on poetv.

Good job here by the way. I haven't actually seen this one (my Shaw-fu is weak).


Riskbreaker - 2009-10-12

You should, there's a flying dragon pet, more magic ray battles, it has Lo Lieh, Kara Hui and a bunch of more crazy rad stuff.

I am so buying every Shaw Brothers movie I can get my hands on from now on.

This is what I imagine Incredible Drugs must be like.
