30 Amazing Wu Xia Movies To Enjoy

When I think of Wu Xia movies, I immediately think of Shaw Brothers and the many classic they have made over the years. What I love about this genre is many things, the Swordplay, The Characters, Story lines, Setting, Costumes and much more.

Wu Xia, traditionally is a form of literature. But after high demand over the years it’s become involoved in many art forms such as Movies, Opera, Video Games and beyond. This list of 30 Wu Xia movies listed, i hope you’ll like and want to thank my friend Richard Robinson for contributing to the list. If we missed any classics out, its most probably because we honestly forgot at that time or maybe we haven’t seen all the classic Wu Xia movies so far, anyway enjoy the list and let us know what you thought in the commen box at the bottom.

1.Have Sword Will Travel (1969)

100 Great Kung Fu Movies – Part 4 (39-21)

When it comes to making features like this one, i love the idea of coming up with my own personal “100 Great Kung Fu Movies” of all time. It is tough choosing just 100 because you know there are many more great Kung Fu movies that are not on the list.

I have decided that to make the list, a movie must have a few hand to hand moments during fight scenes in the movies chosen. If for example its mainly sword play with one fight scene hand to hand it won’t make the list. Its old school “style” Kung Fu movies, not modern day settings.

I understand everyone will have their own personal favorites and some may not agree with my list and that’s fine because it’s nice to have different opinions on this genre which keeps it fresh and alive when having good debates.

Anyway, thank you

Chinese Film The House That Never Dies Turns Real Haunted Mansion into Tourist Attraction

Plenty of movies here in the States have of course been inspired by allegedly true paranormal events, from The Amityville Horror to The Conjuring.

A sure sign of the success of such films is when the haunted houses at the center of them become tourist attractions in the wake of their release, which is something that's going on big time over in China this weekend.

As reported by The New York Times, this past Thursday night marked the theatrical release of a film called The House That Never Dies (Jingcheng No. 81), which quickly became a smash hit at the Chinese box office. The 3D horror flick has already pulled in $25.7 million, putting it third on the domestic charts.

Like the aforementioned films before it, The House That Never Dies was based on the real-life legend of a mansion in Beijing known as Chaonei No. 81. According to stories, the house was

Even More Recent Horror Movies You Might Have Missed (But Should See)
Although mainstream horror cinema has been slow to churn out titles, and as of late seems to have opted to focus primarily on remaking the classics of yesteryear, there are a vast quantity of low budget and independent horror films coming out every week. Due to limited means and the microscopic marketing budgets associated with independent filmmaking, it’s easy for quality films to slip through the cracks. In response, we created this recurring segment to explore some interesting horror movies that might have flown under your radar. [If you missed out on our previous lists of forgotten gems, follow the links to Parts One, Two, and Three of our series.] Now we present yet another five horror films from the past five years that you may have overlooked... but should definitely see. Dream Home (2010) It’s difficult to describe this multifaceted film, as it functions on so many different levels. On the surface, it’s a slasher, but it’s also a very dark comedy, and it's packed with social commentary. Hong

So Young (2013) Movie Review

So Young” sees Chinese actress Zhao Wei stepping behind the camera to make her directorial debut, backed by veteran producer Stanley Kwan (“Rouge”, “Centre Stage”). For her first outing as helmer, the popular “Red Cliff” and “Painted Skin: The Resurrection” star chose to adapt a novel by Xin Yiwu, which follows a collection of friends as they experience love and loss at college and then again in later life. A surprise smash hit at the domestic box office (and recently having been chosen to screen at the 2013 London Film Festival), the film has a top ensemble cast of appropriately youthful talent, headed by Yang Zishan (“In Case of Love”), Mark Chao (“Caught in the Web”) and singer Han Geng (“My Kingdom”). The film begins in the mid-1990s, with Yang Zishan as Zheng Wei, a small town girl who heads to a big city university with hopes of reuniting with

Title: Drug War Director: Johnnie To Starring: Louis Koo, Sun Honglei, Huang Yi, Li JingBreaking Bad” fans, foreign film cineastes and gangster flick aficionados should all find something worthwhile in Johnnie To’s taut, impeccably staged “Drug War,” an involving, atmospheric cops-and-criminals import. For years, To’s films struggled to find Stateside distribution, while lesser action filmmakers burnished their reputations ripping off his style. That changed by degrees with a stretch of films from 2005 to 2007, including “Triad Election,” “Exiled” and “Triangle,” which did mostly boutique box office in the United States but solid home video business for distributor Tartan. The 58-year-old, Hong Kong-born To (whose name rhymes with “row”) often [ Read More ]

Exclusive: The Goods Get Delivered In Clip From Johnnie To's 'Drug War'

Rarely does a year go by without a new film from the prolific Hong Kong director Johnnie To, and while they may not always make their way stateside, when they do, it's likely worth tracking down. And one to keep on your radar is "Drug War," which is coming to theaters after a festival run last year that saw it hit Toronto, New York, Seattle, London, Rome, Rotterdam and more. Starring Louis Koo, Sun Honglei, Huang Yi and Li Jing, the gritty crime thriller follows a drug manufacturer, who decides to turn informant and help take down the cartel he's been cooking for. But time is of the essence, and the cops only have 72 hours to put the plan in motion, and soon events reach a boiling point. In this exclusive scene, we see the cops and informant beginning to forge their uneasy alliance. It's a solid thriller, one that

Review: Dream Home

Dream Home (Wai dor lei ah yut ho)

Stars: Josie Ho, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Eason Chan, Michelle Ye, Norman Chu | Written by Ho-Cheung Pang, Kwok Cheung Tsang | Directed by Ho-Cheung Pang

Darker than Satan’s pencil case, Dream Home serves up a healthy hammock full of blood, guts and gore. All of which had me laughing, wincing and most importantly, enjoying for the full 96 minute duration.

If you aren’t familiar with Asian cinema then know this. I love it and Dream Home further exacerbated my enthusiasm for it. Directed by Pang Ho-cheung, Dream Home is the story of Cheng Li-sheung who is a young, upwardly mobile professional that is finally ready to invest in her first home. However, when the deal falls through and after years of saving and searching for her ‘dream home’ she is forced to keep her dream alive, even if it means utilising some

GrimmUpNorth 2010: review of Chinese slasher Dream Home

Year: 2010

Directors: Ho-Cheung Pang

Writers: Ho-Cheung Pang

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by:

Rating: 5 out of 10

[Editor's note: so begins projectcyclops' exhaustive coverage of the GrimmUpNorth Film Festival]

The premise of Dream Home is quite inspired. A woman in Hong Kong works two mind numbing jobs, one in a call centre where she has to deal with abusive recipients to cold calls and another in a high class boutique where the wealthy come to spend oodles of cash. Despite her working hours she still cannot find a decent apartment, and recalls a time when her family lived in a pleasant area long since torn down and replaced with luxury high rise blocks the likes of which she can only dream of affording. Her plan is simple, she’ll murder her way to the top. Kill the residents and the price will fall, free space will become available and she can realise her ambition of getting that ocean view. Unfortunately the inspiration ends

UK Trailer, Poster, Stills & Release Details For The Wonderful Dream Home

  • HeyUGuys
One of my favourite films from this year’s Frightfest was the remarkable Hong Kong film Dream Home. In my round up of day three of Frightfest I described Dream Home as follows,

“A well crafted film that blends many genres and weaves a fascinating and engrossing story. Touching on the handover, property markets, the economic crisis, female empowerment and gender roles Dream Home is an intelligent and thoughtful film. It is also very sick and twisted in its set pieces. Jumping from a funny and touching scene between two children to scenes of gory violence Dream Home expects the audience to keep up and if they do they will find a rewarding and fascinating film.” (You can also read my full review of the film here)

The official synopsis of Dream Home is,

Cheng Li-sheung (Josie Ho) is a young, upwardly mobile professional finally ready to invest in her first home.

GrimmFest 2010 Announces Full Line-Up

Manchester’s Grimm Up North Festival 2010 rolls out for its second year and runs from Thursday 28th October to 31st October. This year’s line-up has been announced today at a press launch at Odder Bar (which I once got thrown out of as a drunken student back in the day when it was Odd Bar).

There’s really something for everybody, including the absolutely brilliant giallo homage Amer (my favourite film of the year) and the Josie Ho slasher flick Dream Home – which really is a ‘cutting’ satire!

Also playing is cannibal flick We Are What We Are, a movie that brings a whole new meaning to ‘going for a Mexican’ and a new digital print of Dario Argento’s masterpiece Profondo Rosso (Deep Red).

So if you want to wing your way up to the brilliant city of Manchester for four days of horror cinema deluxe, why not?
