Posted by: | Comments (0)

To ease ourselves back into the Shaw Brothers universe we make a quick detour into Golden Harvest territory to cover 1972’s ONE ARMED BOXER, the movie that will then allow us to watch MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE.

The Shaolin temple gets wrecked, its master is killed, and its students are sent packing. Lots of time passes. People put on plays. They get married. Kids are produced. Every so often, revenge is attempted.

BMFcast372 – A*P*E – Col. GD Davis

Posted by: | Comments (0)

A*P*E (1976) continues APEril in grand tradition with a Korean King Kong knockoff with an incredibly low budget. Can abysmal editing, Joanna Kerns’ screaming, and one very annoyed colonel make everything better? (What do you think!?)

In the second half we give our thoughts on the first few episodes of Netflix’s Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (2017), BJ finally sees John Wick (2014), and we discuss a new entry in a franchise we’ve mentioned in passing a few times in the past, The Fate of the Furious (2017). (F8! Get it!?) Enjoy!

The Mighty Peking Man (1977) begins a brand new APE-ril in Shaw Bros fashion! It may be yet another remake of King Kong, but it’s certainly got that Shaw Bros touch, with random love montages, monster trucks battling a giant ape, and of course, large-scale city destruction. Will all this add up to Jox?

After the break we talk some TV with the recently-concluded Big Little Lies and Review, while talk of Gareth Edwards’ Monsters (2010) leads to e-mails and discussions on Rogue One (2016) and everything Star Wars under the sun. Or galaxy. Or something. Enjoy!

Time for another one of the “big guns”. The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (aka Master Killer) is one of the Shaw Brothers’ biggest hits. When you watch it, you can see why. Harlo and Chuck are here to break down all the action.

BMFcast Extra 020 – Dirty Ho

Yes, it has an unfortunately misleading title… unfortunate because otherwise this movie is AWESOME. Billed as a comedy, this one has some of the best fight scenes we’ve ever witnessed. Pure martial arts genius at work in this one. Come listen to us rave about it.

We needed a baseline for our Shaw Brothers project, so we dipped a couple years into the past to check out one of the more famous of the studio’s martial arts flicks, 1978’s Five Deadly Venoms. Enjoy!
