vintage thai ass kicking

reading the coverage at Kaiju Shakedown of Tony Jaa's appearance in NYC at a promo screening of THE PROTECTOR (aka TOM YUM GOONG) and came across this link to one of the early films by Panna Rittikrai, Jaa's fight director. look for this coming out subtitled in up coming weeks. and below is a pic of a handsome white devil and his bodyguards (Panna on the right)

cause its been too damn long

number one excuse - at a cottage for 15 days with dial-up only...

this harks back to one of my original blog postings on the super 8mm digest of THUNDER KICK. someone took their copy, transferred it to video, and scored all the fight scenes with hiphop tracks

and you can't forget the masters of fists and needles, the dudes at Hop Fu. if they ever play near your dojo, check'em!

They Call Him Chop Suey

Since I am taking it easy, trying to beat the heat of Toronto, I guess I should be filing more posts on the blog. Problem is I will be heading to the cottage in the next two days where there is only dial-up! GASP! Whatever will I do? Relax maybe...

This posting goes out to my good friend Romeo who has been sweating in worse climates in the Philippines. He has been working hard on his film THE INHERITANCE which you can read about here, here and even here.

Grabbed this poster for THEY CALL HIM CHOP SUEY, unaware that is was a Filipino flick starring 70s Tagalog kung fu hero Ramon Zamora (DRAGON, LIZARD, BOXER and SNAKE DRAGON CONNECTION) and written by Bobby Suarez who would later go on to direct/produce stellar films like ONE-ARMED EXECUTIONER, CLEOPATRA WONG, and BIONIC BOY 1 & 2 (aka DYNAMITE JOHNSON and TRONIC BOY). Romeo - look these dudes up for for cameos in your martial arts epic!
