HEI MING DAN (1972)





A.K.A
BLACK LIST
A.K.A.
NINJA BLACK LIST
A.K.A.
NINJA TERMINATORS
A.K.A.
NINJA HEAT

Yeah, lots of titles aren't there? The last one is the one in my huge 200 title box set I got a little over a year ago. I tried watching them all one after the other and that didn't work for me. Instead, I just grab one from the box and see what wonders await me.
A brother is released from prison after six years for a crime he did not commit. His brother is there waiting for him with the list of the four men who wronged him. He has no desire for vengeance, he wants them to go to the police to confess their crimes.
Of course if they don't then he has no compunctions in killing them. It all leads to the main boss who has married his girlfriend and while he is gone she gave birth to their son. Now it's time to fight the main man no matter what the outcome.
This is such a wonderful movie. Taking place in Hong Kong in the 70's the fashions are outrageous, the fights are pretty good and it has this feel of a classic revenge western. I did find it interesting that each an who died had their death scene intercut with those they loved. It added impact to what could have been a modern Kung Fu flick.
Good movie that made me glad it was a part of this huge box set. It is filled with such wonders.

New Year's Part One

I have tried to make New Year's resolutions year after year only to have them, like many people, fall by the wayside. I'm getting too old for that nonsense.
I did, however, find the perfect thing to face the next year.
This;

The brick walls are not there to keep us out.
The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.
The brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough.
They're there to stop the other people.
- Randy Pausch


I like this.
I will be doing this.
Everyone have an excellent New Year.
Tomorrow I will release my list of best DVDs released in 2014.
You'll like my list.
It only has one entry.

THE BROTHERS DIM/WHO STOLE SHRUNKEN ED? DOUBLE FEATURE

Being an unofficial biographer of Michael Legge has its moments. I always look forward to anything he does. In this case the new release gives us two movies for the price of one.
First up is The Brothers Dim who, if I'm correct had their debut in a short film The Lemon Man A pair of idiots who are 37 months behind in their rent and if they don't pay the landlord, will get evicted from their garage. Lucky for them, the landlord has lost his lucky penny he has had since birth. If they can locate that then they can live in the landlord's garage for the rest of their lives.
Taking the story telling aspect of a bizarre fairy tale, right down to the narrator being a physical person who they are constantly trying to get rid of and a fairy godmother who can grant wishes as long as they say it before her sparkler wand dies out, THE BROTHERS DIM has that absurdist quality of many of Legge's short films. Short and to the point this might not have worked as a feature, but is perfect at this length and makes for a great half of a double feature.


WHO STOLE SHRUNKEN ED? is for those of us who truly love Legge's horror host persona, Dr. Dreck. Over the years he has developed a repertory company of players that make us laugh between the B movies that he usually shows on his program. It also links in the plot from the Dr. Dreck feature film from a few years back for us truly fanatic fiends of THE DUNGEON OF DRECK. He could give us one of these every year in addition to the regular program to keep us in touch with the characters outside of their TV show setting. That would be awesome!
In addition to the two mini features we get a blooper reel that shows how much fun they are having on the set of both features and a short film from the far flung past that shows us that Michael Legge has always been a different kind of film maker. It's called HUMAN INTEREST and is one of the true highlights of the entire DVD. Kind of like unearthing a archaeological, cinematic find.
At this point I will be looking at dissecting this as well as MONOCHROMIA, his last film and the fascinating short film, HUMAN INTEREST for a revised edition of his biography.
Or I might wait. By the time I get that done, he might spring another movie on me.
Who knows?

And if this sounds like your kind of thing go HERE to order your copy today. I warn you though, Michael Legge movies are VERY addictive

THE NEW ISSUE IS DONE!!!

Divine Exploitation #3

I'm at work so this is a pretty tiny image, it will not be this fuzzy on the actual product.
Now here's the scoop;

For some reason, even though I have changed nothing format wise from the previous two issues, the price went up. It is not five bucks it is five-fifty. I am of the opinion that this sucks so here is my solution;

You can PayPal me (Use the gift setting please or your money will be returned to you.) five bucks and where to send it and I will send it to you personally. Because of the inconvenience I will also be glad to sign the issue if you want, let me know in the paypal instructions. I am also famous for sending other things in the envelope like mini comics and the like so it will be a bonus. The five bucks will include shipping.
If you want it for Christmas order early.
Also, this is just for the US. I will be unable to ship overseas. 

Thanks for understanding.

Have a Merry Christmas.

Stay Twisted!
