Johnny To's 1998 triad ballad to downtrodden mob employees and the perils of having poor workers compensation entitlements. Starring a super charasmatic snakeskin wearing Sean Lau and ice cool Leon Lai, this is tragicomic bro-mance at its finest. It doesn't always hit where it aims but it will still maim you.

Blood Brothers/Bloody Dynasty

The Pedicab Driver
1:05:17Sammo Hung’s self-directed and self-starring 1989 tragi-ballad, Pedicab Driver, mixes young love and heartbreak with the biggest bone crunching Hong Kong action choreography on film. Featuring Sammo’s trademark all-star ensemble cast, this is as good as old school action cinema gets.
1:05:15The crew watch the 1977 cult psychedelic horror comedy House, directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi. Not a huge amount of action in this one, barring some crazy stuff pulled off by best girl Kung Fu. But it's Halloween and it's a goddamned classic that a number of us hadn't seen. New time we will be back to the usual fisticuffs.
57:13The AAC crew take a trip through space and time via 1992's The Cat. One of the many "Wisely" films based on the writings of Hong Kong novelist Ni Kuang. Waise Lee stars as our hero 'Wisely' (naturally!) who befriends the mysterious Alien played by mega idol Gloria Yip. Are black cats bad luck? Can the 'aliens' find their way back home? Do dogs know kung fu? How many people die in this movie? Join us and find out!
1:00:22Jet Li and Jackie Cheung turn up the heat in a High Risk game of cat and mouse with a devious mastermind, in a desperate move to avoid total Meltdown. Wong Jing’s 1995 blockbuster thinly veiled Die-Hard clone and Jackie Chan critique is pure octane!
The Street Fighter/Gekitotsu! Satsujin ken
1:02:32Takuma Tsurugi - a name of infamy that strikes both fear and spontaneous arousal in whoever he touches and leaves you wanting more. In honour of the enigmatic and irrepressable Shinichi Sonny Chiba we salute his memory. Forever preserved in Shigergiro Ozawa's 1974 masterpiece, The Street Fighter. Clash! Killer Fist!
Rurouni Kenshin: Final Chapter Part 2 The Beginning
1:07:18We watch the Battousai rise become a legend of the Meji Restoration, fall in love, grow a Daikon, then fight a bunch of ninjas. The last movie in live action adaptations of Rurouni Kenshin it’s also a prequel, so a good place to start if you want to get into the series. Directed by Keishi Ōtomo and starring Takeru Satoh.
1:00:23This 2020 Teddy Chan directed fantasy flick stars Henry Lau and Peter Ho. A hero on an epic quest, with action and drama!
Heroes of the East
1:05:59Lau Kar Leung and Gordon Liu bring you this 1978 Shaw Brothers Classic...Heroes of the East. Some couple arguments can lead to broken crockery - but this couple's arguments leads to international battle of Shaolin vs. Ninja's!
