        • VENGEANCE OF A SNOW GIRL - Dir. Lo Wei (1970)

          Lo Wei's last feature for SB before he flew the coop for Golden Harvest & helped launch Bruce Lee's career with THE BIG BOSS & FIST OF FURY. "Baby Queen" Li Ching was the cutest & most charming actress in SB's stable IMHO and she really lives up to that billing here with a peculiar mix of coy charms and a ruthless, almost sadistic vengeful streak. Li Ching's sympathetic portrayal as the obstinate crippled daughter of slain martial arts parents who is hellbent on seeking revenge on her parents' killers at all costs is what elevates this flick above the usual wuxia revenge story.

          • BIG BAD SIS - Dir. Sun Chung (1976)

            SB take on pinky violence & what's not to like? T&A plus girls kicking ass is always a winner. Shaw Yin-Yin riding a bicycle in her birthday suit & Chong Lee (one of the cuter actresses of that era with her big doe eyes but alas, she didn't have a long career in the biz) showing boobies are the highlights. :up:

            • A Stranger in Paradise. A cheap as hell shot in Thailand Action-Thriller dealing with international finance with a script written by someone who has obviously never even made a pension savings account as his/her bank. At least Gary Daniels is in it playing a bodyguard to one of the totally unknown leads.

                only saw three pyun flicks so far:

                cyborg - yeah!
                captain america - wtf is this sh*t? the "car sickness" trick is the most retarded move in an action movie ever.
                vicious lips - punchy punchy, punch punch!
                NEMESIS and RAVENHAWK are good.

                The NEMESIS sequels and SPITFIRE are garbage.

                  A film with this intro can never be considered bad:

                  • WICKED PRIEST 2: Ballad of Murder - Dir. Takashi Harada (1968)

                    I've seen all the films in the series except this one but finally the 'lost' ep is now available with fan subs. :woot: I really enjoyed this series as a whole & while on the surface it merely appears to be Wakayama's attempt to cash in on the success of Zatoichi; it actually acquits itself quite well as worthy in its own right. Wakayama actually one ups his brother in the violence department in this one as his character metes out some serious punishment to some well deserving Yakuza scum including his trademark fingers to the eye socket move!

                    • BOUNTY HUNTER 2: FORT OF DEATH - Dir. Kudo Eiichi (1968)

                      Finally got a chance to see this one since a newly remastered version with fan subs has recently been made available. This one is my favorite in the trilogy of BOUNTY HUNTER flicks starring the irrepressible Tomisaburo Wakayama. The director, Kudo is known for his realistic swordplay scenes but he goes with the flow of the series here since Wakayama uses a mixture of Western firearms & traditional samurai weapons. Therefore, expect a lot of arterial blood sprays whether from sword or gun, hacked off limbs, decapitations, exploding bodies & the like for your viewing pleasure. I actually prefer the grittier & more lifelike violence in this series as opposed to the 'cartoonish' quality in the LW&C flicks. The entire series is cool but this one is my fave for its simple Seven Samurai storyline & the modified gatling gun that Wakayama employs to mow down rows of charging attackers.

                      There was also a TV series too & that one is highly entertaining as well. It also has the added bonus of featuring native Taiwanese actress, Judy Ongg in the role of his loyal female sidekick & Iga ninja, Kagero. The movie version features, Tomoko Mayama in the role & she's probably best known in the West for her role alongside Wakayama in LW&C: Sword of Vengeance (she played the prostitute who was going to bite off her tongue rather than 'soil' the honor of Itto by having forced sex with him in front of the group of brigands who takeover a local onsen)...she's good as Kagero but no Judy Ongg IMHO.

                      • The first and hopefully only time I'll stream a film on the computer as its the only way to see it. While I fully support the DIY style of distribution, he could have at least had some DVD's pressed and sold them himself.

                        • NAKED SEVEN aka SENGOKU ROCK - Dir. Yasuharu Hasebe (1974)

                          Basically STRAY CAT ROCK meets SEVEN SAMURAI within the roman porno genre. I'm a huge fan of Hasebe but this one was rather lackluster. Yes there is plenty of wanton nudity and the usual pink film excess but it's quite boring in parts and failed to grab my attention as great as the premise of a 'sexualized' parody of the classic Kurosawa movie initially sounds.

                          • THE REBEL INTRUDERS aka KILLER ARMY - Dir. Chang Cheh (1980)

                            Saw this again after many years & it still holds up as one of my top 3 Venoms flicks. A lot of kick ass action & worth it alone just for Philip Kwok's fight scene at the restaurant in the beginning.



                            A LIVELY GEISHA - Dir. Kosaku Yamashita (1968)

                            Man, this shit started out slow & got progressively more boring & I thought I made a mistake deciding to watch this ninkyo eiga because Junko Fujii doesn't even have any fight scenes. What's a Junko Fujii flick without any swordplay? But glad I stuck with it because the last 10 mins certainly make up for it with Bunta Sugawara going into a frenzied SWORD OF DOOM type rage! He really loses it & so do his foes -- they literally lose their heads, limbs & their lives! The prelude to this bloodlust was director Yamashita doing some artsy fartsy visual tricks while Fujii does a traditional geisha dance & it totally caught me off guard to the savage carnage about to be displayed onscreen.

                            • The fith estate, the wikileaks Movie. Was ok. Good actors all around but the story isn't as engaging as it should be. 3 out of 5 toasters.

                              • TWO CHAMPIONS OF SHAOLIN - Dir. Chang Cheh (1980)

                                Having watched KILLER ARMY earlier, it made me want to re-watch another Venoms classic & I chose 2 Champions. Some parts are rather middling & the original revenge story veers off into some convoluted plot line around the middle of the film but the fight scenes & choreo more than make up for it. The gory & inventive deaths are cool too. Testicles ripped clean off, brain and spinal fluid squirting like a geyser out of an open head wound, & the hilarious human pretzel death of Lu Feng are all top notch. :up: Also, Candy Man Suet Yee is very cute & winsome in this one.
