    Those aliases are a pain sometimes. I've been tryin to figure out what heroes of the east was until yesterday.

    Treasure Hunters - Is that also "Master of Disaster", at least thats the name on my box.

    Dirty Ho - one of my fav Gordon Liu movies.

    You have to see a movie atleast twice. If I watched a movie just one time, I really can't give it a rating. Especially when you see alot of movies, I mix them up and hardly remember what was in wich movie lol.

    8 diagram - I haven't seen this one in a while, but its always been one of my favorites.

    Perhaps it would have came out better if Fu Sheng didn't die during the filiming of that movie. I wonder how different it would have been with Fu Sheng having a significant role at the end of the movie. I'm sure the plan was for him to regain his sanity and help find his brother and get revenge on the traitor. Would have been interesting...

    definetely. as it stands, i didnt find anything in 8 diagram that i thought he did better than in many of his other films..aside from the violence, which is rare for a lau film. it is sad about fu sheng..im sure it woulda been better if he lived. solid film overall, but its no Dirty Ho or Martial Club or Heroes of the East in my books.

    has anybody seen Buddhist Fist? i rewatched it again the other day, and its definetely one of Yuen Woo Ping's best.

    I saw that movie before, I can't even remember if I own it or not. I think I had the VHS. I actually want to get Buddha Assasinator.

    Buddha Assassinator is underrated as hell...its the same crew who worked on hell's windstaff...Meng Hoi stars in this along with hwang jang lee and chin yuet sang...choreography by my mans Corey Yuen and chin yuet sang...the endfight is unbelievable! great fights in this one...good story...probably the last classic kung fu film ive seen that completely caught me off guard. - 4.5

    Dammit, yeah, I want to pick this movie up. Haven't bought a movie in about 2 months now. Hell's windstaff I liked, i have/had it on vhs, I think its subtitled though. Is there a english dubbed version?

    O, and heres a link to that Kuo Chui interview where he talks about chiang sheng.

    http://www.blackbelttheater.com/kuo-int.html

    I found that link on this Chiang Sheng memorial page....

    http://www.alliancemartialarts.com/C...iangSheng.html

    And heres a Lo Meng interview that is also linked in that memorial page...

    http://changcheh.0catch.com/meng-int.htm

    Old stuff, but still good reads if you never read those interviews. I didn't realize they venoms choreographed (or worked on) that Dru Hill video where they were doin kung fu or somethin. I don't actually remember seeing the video, i'm not into R&B like that, but interesting to know.

    what??? shaolin challenges ninja the weakest gordon liu film???? not a chance...haha to each his own...i still strongly believe its his best film..glad u liked 7 grandmasters..teh weapons fight is the best.

    yeah there is a dubbed version of hells windstaff...its actually been harder for me to find a subbed version ironically...

    dirty ho...directed by Liu Chia Liang starring gordon liu, lo lieh, wang lung wei and wong yue. probably lau kar leung's most 'creative' film...theres 3 or 4 of those "fights in disguise" if u know what i mean. the finale features one of the best tag team kung fu fighting ive ever seen. i dont kno of any alternate titles.

    hey bob99digi, thanx for those links, i hadnt seen the lo meng one b4.

    I love Dirty Ho. The number of KF-flix with a stain of comedy that is actually FUNNY can be counted on one hand. And Dirty Ho is my first finger. Return of 36th actually got it's funny moments too if I remember it correctly.

    Some comments

    Shaolin Challenges Ninja - Great storyline, and great fights, and Liu Chia Hui, of course.. But I can't give it a 5. I think it's because that damn wife of Gordon. OMG I just want to rip her head of sometimes...

    7 grandmasters is great, but the fact that the kid (Lee I-min) becomes stronger than his master (who is the second greatest fighter in the world) just like that... Nah man, I always hate that.

    Iron Monkey - Did you mix them up, or do you really think the new one is better than the -77 version? The one with Chen Kuan Tai is a straight 5 (or 5.5) for me. I love it.

    Enter the dragon - Hugely overrated, just as just about all Bruce Lee movies..

    Elequent - nice list, hopefully i'll write mine down over the weekend and post it up monday. I know what you mean about movies lost, i've lost many of the films I started with, which were mainly the more popular films. Luckily they were all vhs mainly and would be replaced with dvds anyway. Man, just thinking about some of my lost titles (kung fu instructor, wutang vs shaolin, masked avengers, abbot of shaolin, ...... man, on and on.)

    Heres another good link for all buying kung-fu films, this is the master list, the release dates or planned release dates for SB films...

    http://www.asiandvdguide.com/shaw_brothers.html

    Dirty Ho - one of my favorite films. I like films that are just straight blood baths, I like films that have interesting or creative fight scenes, and this has a few of those.

    hopefully uve got the media blasters copy of 7 grand..a gorgeous widescreen print with the english dub adn the mandarin. i truly love that film. i love those yuen woo ping films...hes my #1 fav martial arts director...hes showed more consistency over the years than anybody, includign liu chia liang. heres a few YWP classics (IMO)

    Snake in the Eagles Shadow
    Drunken Master
    Buddhist Fist
    Dance of the Drunk Mantis
    Legend of a Fighter
    Secret Rivals 2 (as action director)
    Born Invincible (as action director)
    Tiger Cage 2
    In the Line of Duty 4
    Iron Monkey
    Once Upon a Time in China 2 (as action director)
    Tai Chi Master
    Wing Chun
    Fist of Legend (as action director)


    "I love Dirty Ho. The number of KF-flix with a stain of comedy that is actually FUNNY can be counted on one hand. And Dirty Ho is my first finger. Return of 36th actually got it's funny moments too if I remember it correctly."

    personally, im not a big fan of liu chia liang's style of comedy..but dirty ho was really good..on all levels. tight plot, characters, comedy, and fights. best scene: gordon liu's "wine tasting fight" with wang lung wei. nearly creamed my pants the first time i saw it lol.

    "Iron Monkey - Did you mix them up, or do you really think the new one is better than the -77 version? The one with Chen Kuan Tai is a straight 5 (or 5.5) for me. I love it."

    i didnt mix them up. i dont really look at them as 'better' or 'worse', cuz of 2 reasons...1/ theyre really 2 completely different films (the new one aint a remake), and 2/ one was made 16 years later. i dont like comparing films from 2 different eras. 3/ iron monkey was the first non bruce lee HK movie i ever saw..its always going to stay close to me. i kno some cats hate wires, but i dont mind them, and that movie is easily the best 'wire-fu' movie out there. donnie yen is ace in that film. i love the 77 version too, but theyre really 2 different experiences. i compare oldskool films with other oldskool films, 80s with 80s and 90s films with 90s. regardless..both films kick ass.

    thanx bob99digi..thanx for that asiandvdguide..itll be useful to all the SB collectors out there.

    after looking at 100proofs list on the first page, i found a bunch of films i forgot to list oh here, maybe i'll go back later and add more to the list.
