RZA Reflects on ‘The 36th Chamber of Shaolin’ and Wu-Tang Clan at Lacma

24 September 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcoming producer, rapper, director and Wu-Tang Clan founder the RZA to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Tuesday night, the Film Independent at Lacma series scored an excellent 35mm print of Liu Chia-Liang’s 1978 kung-fu classic “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin,” presented in its original Mandarin language. In fact, it might have even been too pristine for the occasion.

As he explained in a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell, the RZA’s formative experiences with the Gordon Liu-starrer came in its dubbed, heavily expurgated form. Yet the film not only provided the Wu-Tang with its debut album title and a plethora of memorable (English language) dialogue samples, it also influenced the group’s guiding philosophy.

“I saw it when I was nine years old on Channel 5, and then again when I was 13 or 14 on 42nd St.,” RZA said, noting that the film’s story of the struggle between »

Panna Rittikrai Has Sadly Passed Away – R.I.P (1961-2014)

20 July 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Panna Rittikrai, the action choreographer who brought us Tony Jaa and Jeejaa Yanin has sadly passed away at the age of 53. It was said Panna was suffering from a long illness, which he sadly did not come through. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this sad time.

Panna had some great movies under his belt as choreographer, he brought the world Tony Jaa (Ong Bak movies) and more recently Tom Yum Goong 2. Also we seen Jeeja Yanin come through in the movie Chocolate and Dan Chupong (Born To Fight).

Panna started off by forming his own 20 man stunt team and was driven by watching movies from Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. In an interview he once said “When the audience realises that the stunt-work is real — that they’re not special effects — they’ll regard it not only as spectacle but as something more high-impact, »

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Thomas’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Boyhood, Schmoyhood. While some of my more distinguished film nerd compatriots may be waiting with rapt attention for Fantasia’s more ‘conventional’ offerings, my attention is fixed on the more unconventional fare: the anime, the kung fu, the movies that avoid classification all together. Fantasia isn’t Fantasia unless you’re watching something you almost certainly couldn’t see at most other festivals, and this year’s installment looks to have that in spades. Here some of my top picks from Fantasia 2014′s stellar line-up.

The Demon of the Lute

Directed by Lung Yat Sing

Hong Kong, 1983

As I learned during 2012′s screening of the Shaw Brothers classic Fist of the White Lotus, very few things in this world rock quite as hard as classic kung fu movies in glorious 35mm on a big screen. Digital projection may be well and good, but as old-school movie buffs know, the feeling of watching an aged, »

‘The Legend of Drunken Master’ is an exuberant display of Jackie Chan’s physical and comedic chops

24 May 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Legend of Drunken Master (aka Drunken Master II)

Written by Eric Tsang, Edward Tang and Barbie Tung

Directed by Lau Kar-leung

Hong Kong, 1994

Unofficially a sequel to the 1978 hit Drunken Master, The Legend of Drunken Master (the original Cantonese title being Drunken Master II even though the film does not follow up on the storyline of the first one) opens in mainland China at the turn of the 20th century. Wong Fei Hung (Jackie Chan), one of the great proponents of the misunderstood drunken boxing, returns home via train with his renowned doctor father Wong Kei Ying (Ti Lung) and family servant (Cheung Chi-Gwong). Whilst trying to smuggle himself into the first-class compartment, Fei Hung notices a man, a former army colonel named Master Fu Wen-Chi (director Lau Kar-leung), stealing a precious box, prompting Fei Hung to give chase. When his skirmish with the elder man concludes and Fei »

The Noteworthy: Orson Welles & "Othello", "Black Sabbeth", Crave

30 April 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: the new poster for Orson Welles' newly restored Othello, screening at the Film Forum. Occasioned by the restoration, Richard Brody writes on the film for The Front Row:

"Welles’s fundamental and lifelong story is that of a big man who gets his comeuppance. He himself was a big man who, in repeatedly filming his own downfall, displayed a kind of emotional masochism, a delight in his own humiliation, that he veritably trumpets in Othello. He films the entire play as a flashback, starting the movie with his own face in closeup: Othello, dead and being borne off for burial. The shock of self-destruction is matched only by the howl of self-pity, albeit a well-earned one—for Welles himself, soon after the world-historical artistic eruption of Citizen Kane, found his own strong and stubborn temperament fiercely countered by the plotters and the potentates of his field."

New York! Prepare Thy Selves For Old School Kung Fu Fest!

21 March 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Attention fans of classic kung fu cinema! Subway Cinema and Anthology Film Archives are putting together a weekend to celebrate classic martial arts films from April 18th through 20th. As well, there will be a tribute to one of kung fu cinema's legendary figures, Lau Kar-leung.The first director to treat kung fu realistically, pitting style against style (Northern Fist vs. Southern Leg! Monkey Boxing vs. Drunken Boxing!), he made movies where martial arts were a philosophy, where training elevated the soul, virtue was more important than survival, and invincible enemies were stabbed in the eardrums. Lau Kar-leung passed away last year at 78 years old, so we're unleashing five of his greatest movies (including Lau's masterpiece Dirty Ho, and the legendary 36th Chamber Of Shaolin, both on 35mm!) plus his show-stopping...

Shaw Brothers Founder Run Run Shaw Passes Away Aged 106

6 January 2014 7:46 PM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

We recently found out that Shaw Brothers founder and legend Run Run Shaw has sadly passed away at his home aged 106. It is a very big loss to the whole of Asian cinema, one incredible man who created a company so that he could make it into one of the biggest in movie history.

It is said, he was surrounded by his family at his home when he passed away and i hope in spirit, he meets back up with other fallen legends such as Lau Kar Leung and Fu Sheng.

While still a teenager, Run Run Shaw joined his elder brothers in Shanghai in their pioneering efforts to build an overseas distribution market for Chinese films. By 1939, they owned 139 cinemas across the region.

The post-war years proved even more successful for the Shaws and in 1959 Run Run moved to Hong Kong where he set up what was to become »
