In our ongoing quest to fulfill the IndieGoGo campaign perks, Sean and I tackle The Stranger and the Gunfighter (aka El kárate, el Colt y el impostor, aka Blood Money).

It’s a fusion of spaghetti Western and Shaw Brothers kung fu film that stars Lee Van Cleef and Lieh Lo.

It ought to be awesome, right? Click on the VHS cover or the title above to download our review of the film to find out.

Review in a Nutshell: This movie is bad. Really, really, really bad. Not the good kind of bad. The bad kind of bad.

#1 Fist Under Heaven

Break out the theme from “Ironside”, because 5 Fingers of Death, aka King Boxer,  is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  A carefully balanced blend of drama and martial arts action, 5 Fingers of Death is the film that kick-started the kung fu film craze in America.

This movie contains:

Lieh Lo, Sans Mustache.

Hand Trauma.

The Old DVD release vs the Dragon Dynasty DVD.

Revenge of the Shaolin Pimp Cane.

Just because you’re a Buddhist doesn’t mean you’re not a Master Killer, because

The 36th Chamber of Shaolin is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: This was the break-out role of kung fu legend Gordon Liu.  Look for lots of gimmicky training scenes, and lots of surprisingly happy, accommodating Shaolin monks.

This movie contains:

SHAOLIN PIMP CANE.

Three Section Staff in the Hizzie.

HEADBUTT OF DEATH.

That’s all you get this week.  I’m off to Anime Weekend Atlanta, where I’ll be involved in the

Otaku USA panel as well as my own production, “Nobody loves GUNHED”, a panel with Tim Eldred.

COMING SOON!

“GRR.  ARGH.”
