The horror...The horror...
I must have blocked it from memory. I think I saw the film on cable in the mid-eighties.
Great, now I'm gonna have nightmares..
Woah! So there are other film delights than blue movies available in Canberra then?
There are also a lot of more recent CGI-heavy HK films that have great trailers and then turn out to be giant snore-fests. "A Man Called Hero", anyone?
Well actually I got the movies from Amazon, so I guess porn is still the capital's great contribution.
I know what you mean about "A Man Called Hero". It was boring and didn't make sense, like half the film had been left out. The big film before it, "Stormriders" is much better as is the one that followed it, "The Duel".
AS to the movie pack, I would say that about forty of the films are really bad, especially the ninja ones, except "Ninja Death" parts I, II, and III. Chinese films about ninja, a grandmaster ninja who dresses in all gold and uses two Chinese maces as weapons. Oh Yeah! Its so bad its beautiful.
I liked Chinese Hercules.
Before she properly understood what the martial arts entailed, my missus bought me several 'Ninja' DVD's.
They looked universally bad just from the covers but after a while I decided that I had better watch one just in case there was something worthwhile there.
I watched "Golden Ninja Warrior" ... oh ... my ... god! It was terrribull! I managed to stomach about half an hour of it - there didn't seem to be any martial arts in it but plenty of misogyny.
It got switched off, the other three films didn't even get taken out of the cellophane wrappers and, after I explained to the missus, all of them ended up being donated to the charity shop (with a warning about the dubious (cinematically and morally) content).
All the Karate Kid flicks and Master of The Flying Guillotine, haven't seen it in years, but from what I can remember it was a classic bad flick!
I LIKED the first Karate Kid
