Thursday Night Kung Fu Theater

   “Shaolin vs. Wu Tang (1983)“!   In a plot to make himself the master of both disciplines, a jealous Qing leader [Wang Lung‑wei] forces two friends from rival martial arts schools [Gordon Liu & Adam Cheng] to fight each other. That sums it up. It’s a pretty simple flick but the opening credits are visually… Continue reading Thursday Night Kung Fu Theater

Why Indiana Jones 4 was Actually Awesome

   Do you think Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucked? Then this may just change your mind like it did mine.    First we need to talk about our attitudes.

Let’s Go, Voltron…

   Voltron: Legendary Defender, was released on June 10th. I cannot recommend this new show enough. I was 15 when Voltron: Defender of the Universe was released in North America from a retooled Beast King: Go Lion.

Future Quest Shows Us the Future of Great Comics

  Like many, today, I was treated to an excellent tale. Future Quest has been a book that I’ve been waiting for ever since it was announced. Today was the payoff.

That Time Wonder Woman Was Blonde (1974)

   I remember watching this TV movie in the late 70’s but that was the last time. Currently, I am attempting to get a copy to watch and pseudo-review. There are copies on Amazon, honestly they don’t seem like they are worth the price. I would rather rent or pay the price for a digital… Continue reading That Time Wonder Woman Was Blonde (1974)
