Movie review: Beijing Rocks

Beijing Rocks is a well-made and thoughtful look into the lives of young people in millennial China. On the surface, this type of film may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it strikes enough of a balance between auteuristic and entertaining to give it a potentially wider audience than your usual foreign arthouse fare.

Movie review: Kung Fu Fever

The worlds of Bruceploitation and blaxploitation collide in Kung Fu Fever, which also goes by probably a dozen other names in a dozen other low-budget VHS and DVD releases, such as the version watched for this review, Black Dragon Fever, released from the thinly-veiled bootlegging company Ground Zero.

Movie review: Iceman

After the success of the Ip Man films and a string of successful releases, Donnie Yen has become arguably the world's biggest martial arts star.

Movie review: The Shopaholics

The Shopaholics doesn't deviate too much (if any) from the Lunar New Year release playbook. Namely, it depends on star power and a lot of cameos to buoy a story that is as light and fluffy as a tub of Cool Whip. For what it is, this film does things well enough that it's worth checking out if you like the actors involved.

Kundo set South Korean box office records upon its' release earlier this year. After viewing the new Blu-ray released by Well Go USA, it's easy to see why. This is a very fun movie. In fact, it's probably the best martial arts/western/period piece mashup with a Robin Hood influence that you're likely to come across.

Movie review: Filthy Guy

You would expect that not every one of Sammo Hung's almost two hundred credits is going to be a gem. 1978's Filthy Guy is a case in point. It's certainly not the worst kung fu movie ever created, but one definitely gets the sense that this was a rushed production, with Sammo not able to give his all.
