Soon-Tek Oh, Voice of Mulan’s Father and Asian-American Theater Pioneer, Dies at 85
Soon-Tek Oh, a pioneering figure in Asian-American theater who voiced Fa Zhou in two “Mulan” films and acted with Roger Moore in “Man with the Golden Gun,” has died. He was 85.

Oh died Wednesday in Los Angeles after a long fight with Alzheimer’s, according to actor Chil Kong. Kong co-founded the Lodestone Theatre Ensemble in Los Angeles under Oh’s guidance.

In addition to his voice credits in “Mulan,” Oh acted in numerous television series throughout his career, beginning in the ’60s with credits on series like “It Takes a Thief” and “I Spy” and spanning through the ’90s with repeat appearances on shows including “Hawaii Five-o,” “M*A*S*H,” and “Charlie’s Angels.” He also acted in “Magnum, P.I.,” “Cagney & Lacey,” and “Hill Street Blues.”

In 1974, Oh appeared as Lieutenant Hip in “Man With the Golden Gun.” In the film, Hip arrests James Bond after Christopher Lee’s Francisco Scaramanga kills a scientist,

James Bond Retrospective: The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)

To mark the 50th Anniversary of one of the most successful movie franchises of all time and with filming well underway on James Bond’s 23rd official outing in Skyfall due for release later this year, I have been tasked with taking a retrospective look at the films that turned author Ian Fleming’s creation into one of the most recognised and iconic characters in film history.

With Roger Moore well and truly established in the lead role after just one film, work began on a follow-up to Live And Let Die almost as soon as it was released into cinemas. Keen to capitalise on the renewed success of the character, producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman chose Fleming’s final Bond novel, The Man With The Golden Gun as their ninth film featuring the British secret agent.

Action Packed Flashback – Missing in Action II: The Beginning

Only one man has ever went toe-to-toe with the legendary Bruce Lee, while living to tell about it and that was Chuck Norris in Return of the Dragon. The always calm and cool Chuck Norris has since become the idealization of a bad-ass thanks to popular culture of Chuck Norris Facts and a few really good commercials, and yet when we quote these:

Chuck Norris was once shot. The bullet died.

When Chuck Norris calls 911 it’s to ask if everything is okay.

Have action fans forgot you don’t get cool by being cool, you earn it, and Chuck Norris officially started to earn his coolness factor in a series of Cannon Films productions during the mid-1980s, namely the Missing in Action series, a deeply personal set of action films for Norris. Killer Film is back with another Action Packed Flashback with director Lance Hool on his Missing in Action II: The Beginning.

Cinematical (Double-o) Seven: Reasons to Love Even the Least of the James Bond Films

A love affair with the James Bond series is like a marriage; it's for life, and it's definitely a "richer or poorer, better or worse" proposition. Some days you get Casino Royale (2006) or Goldfinger (1964), where everything is bliss, but then other days you get Grace Jones or a cameo from Madonna or someone named "Christmas Jones." Some days are Connery and some are Lazenby. Some days your director is Guy Hamilton or Martin Campbell, and some days your director is John Glen or Marc Forster. But, like a diamond, the imperfections are what make it all worthwhile. From among the dregs, then, here are a few of my favorite things: 1. The entire supporting cast in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

I confess it's one of the weakest Roger Moore entries, but come on! Motherf---in' Christopher "Dracula/Dooku/Saruman" Lee is the bad guy! And Hervé Villechaize as his diminutive villainous sidekick!
