Bei pan shi men (1980)
Shaw Bros meets kung fu comedy
THE MASTER is a very entertaining kung fu comedy from the last days of the Shaw Brothers. After the success of Drunken Master and Snake in the eagle shadow, the studio release this one, showing the great capacities of Chen Kuan Tai as "the master". The humor is a bit irritating but there are some good gags and the action is fast-paced. Kung fu choregraphies are good, like in the Jackie Chan movies of this era. This movies is not a masterpiece but it's really fun to watch: the plot is simple, there is a slightly erotic sequence, some violence and plenty of fights. If you like shaw brothers movies that go straight in your face like Monkey Kung Fu or Crippled Avenger, you will surly like this one! Worth catching for all kung fu fan, like the other Tony Liu movies, especially the crazy Holy Flame of the Martial World.
Yes, it's worse than Plan Nine...but it's fun !
This movie is as bad as you want it ! Worse than "Plan Nine From Outer Space"...Worse than "Alien On Earth"...even worse than "Indepandence Day" ( yes, it's true )...But more funny than these three movies, too. There are lot of killer stuff in this one : a lot of gay scientist in pink uniform, some very fat dancing queen ( remember Divine ? ), some very gorgeous but silly female alien in platform boots, some incredibly bad acting, and, of course, a giant MOUSAKA ! Yes, a MOUSAKA. It's a kind of parody of the Blob but you can never tell if the director wants to make a normal serious thing or not. Some dialogues :"This moonlight looks like a sunrise" ; "The Z-Movies strikes back" or the explanations of the origins of the monsters ( with some words you only heard in "Star Trek" ) are really devastating. The theater was totally FULL ( with 30 minutes of queue ! )when I saw it. You laugh almost all the time ( only the end is a bit too much ! ) but it's something that must be seen to be true !
