Kung Fu Fridays in March 2012

Tonight, a Shaw Brothers flick called The Avenging Eagle, but March is coming up fast and there are five Fridays in there! What's on tap for my local Kung Fu Film Club...

Kung Fu Dunk - KFF member Furn Sai Yuk is bringing this one in because he knows it's crap, and he'll have to bring his Blu-Ray player too, because it's HIGH DEF crap. I'll soon regret the day I said they should do a whole series of Shaolin Soccers with every sport ever like, you know, that rockin' franchise, Air Bud.

Bodyguards and Assassins - Donnie Yen, Nicholas Tse, Tony Leung Ka-fai, Leon Lai, Wang Xueqi, Simon Yam, Hu Jun, Eric Tsang and Fan Bingbing? Yes, please! This 2009 epic takes place in 1905 as the Quing dynasty crumbles. Let the Revolution begin!

The Duel - Another Chang Cheh film from Shaw Brothers Studios, and it promises to be one of his most blood-soaked. Ti Lung stars as a dude who wants to kill some evil bureaucrats. I'm all for that.

Kung Fu Panda - The fictional action star featured on this month's poster, the panda is a Chinese national icon, kung fu is the national pride, and Jack Black is... an awesome lunatic. BY POPULAR DEMAND!

Hot Potato - Speaking of popular demand... On the same disc as Black Belt Jones is Hot Potato, which also stars the Blaxploitation star/character, and when my KFF crowd saw the poster for it, they did request I show it sooner than later. I mean, it looks like Indiana Jones is sharing the screen with Jim Kelly, and well, it's called "Hot Potato"! A perfect early evening of comic heckling before we all head out to a friend's house-warming party.

A pretty varied menu. My inner circle's got their seats reserved. The rest can read all about it on Each Week in Geek!
