Oh boy, I’m pretty excited for this one.
Back in June, I attended PopCon here in Indianapolis, and this guy had a table full of posters of various sizes. He had this stack of lobby posters that he was selling for five bucks each. It’s in this stack that I found a Goldengirl poster to gift to Brad Jones, the Cinema Snob, himself, and I also found one for this movie… Chinese Hercules.
This marks the return of Bolo Yeung, billed in this movie as Yang Sze, who appeared in The Clones of Bruce Lee that I covered back in August. Bolo wasn’t just a martial artist and actor, but he was also a bodybuilder. That probably is why 1) he’s often portrayed as a giant beast and 2) is Chinese Hercules.

Here’s a first for B-Movie Enema… I’ve been personally asked to cover a movie. More on that shortly.
I’m returning to the realm of Bruceploitation with The Clones of Bruce Lee from 1980. Now… I was burned previously, but I have a good feeling about this one. I mean take a look at the trailer! It’s got a whole mess of Bruce Lee wannabes. Heh… Say that out loud – “Bruce Lee wannabe”. It’s fun.
Sigh… I do have fun.
Anyway, I’m getting distracted. Let me get back on track here. Much like all other Bruceploitation flicks, this centers heavily around the tragic, real life death of Bruce Lee in 1973. After he died, science did some stuff and now there’s a trio of Bruces to fuck up the world… because… erm… SCIENCE! Continue reading “The Clones of Bruce Lee (1980)”
12 ASSASSINS FROM HELL WITH ONE OBJECTIVE:
Whoa… Who is Bruce and why is he such an asshole that you need demon assassins from hell to take him out?
Oh boy, that’s question that has answers that is weird and interesting in its own right. Shit, I could write an entire article on the whole idea of “Bruceploitation” alone and never once start this movie. The explanation of why Bruce needs to be killed and what the title even means begins with the greatest martial arts star in the whole world: Bruce Lee. Continue reading “The Dragon Lives Again (aka Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, 1977)”
Okay. Admittedly, last week was a bit of a blunder in my Blue March theme month here at B-Movie Enema. However, can this week’s feature, Oriental Blue, do better? Can it improve upon the cockamamie doody bullfuck that was The Vixens of Kung Fu?
Well… I mean it kinda has to right? Right? Yes, it is made by the same guy, Bill Milling. Yes, it’s Asian-themed. Yes, there seems to be some form of prostitution afoot. But I can say it is a full 15 minutes longer. That has to mean something, right?
Right? Continue reading “Oriental Blue (1975)”
We’ve got two more weeks for Blue March and you know what we need? A vacation. Let’s head out to the mystical Orient to get some eastern eroticism.
We start by first checking in with The Vixens of Kung Fu.
Gee. I wonder why this one appeals to me. Vixens. Kung Fu. Yup, the math checks out. But it’s not only that, but it also has some sweet, sweet revenge. The movie is about a young prostitute getting brutally assaulted. She runs away and finds a secret group of hot ass kung fu masters. They train her and she gets her revenge all in a real tidy 70-minute package. Continue reading “The Vixens of Kung Fu (1975)”
Oh no… I may have pushed this luck with the kung fu and martial arts movies one week too far.
This… is Kung Fu Brother. You know you’re in troubling waters when the following things can be said about your movie:
1. There is a discrepancy in the release date: Amazon says 2016, IMDb says 2014.
2. IMDb’s cumulative score for the movie is a whopping 2.7/10
3. Ron Hall, star of Vampire Assassin, is in your movie. You can find reviews of this here and here.
4. The guy on your DVD cover looks like he just literally lept out of the N64 game Goldeneye and is kicking you with his gross bare foot. Continue reading “Kung Fu Brother (2016)”
Cold Steel on the outside… ALL woman on the inside!
Ooh boy this kinda has my motor running if you know what I mean, fellas. Policewomen is about a lady cop (as pictured on the poster to the left), who has a skirt on, some stockings, and boobs, taking on a gang of lady criminals – they, too, probably in the boob and skirts market. I bet they also like to carry around guns and point them and shit!
HOLY JEEZ, GUYZ! LADIES AND GUNS! WOOHOO!
Ahem… Sorry, everyone. Not sure what got into me there. Anyway, I should also point out that this is another movie featuring some sweet martial arts action. I mean, why not? Let’s turn this month into a balls-to-the-walls kung fu month, eh?!? Continue reading “Policewomen (1974)”
Holy Jesus Fuck, what do we have here?
Why, it’s Warhawk Tanzania starring in Devil’s Express! Where do I start with this one? I mean, everything in the poster looks batshit crazy. There’s a monster guy who has a woman in one hand and a train in the other. We have the not one, but TWO taglines – “50,000 years of Death stalks the subways!!!” and “Take the Express train to TERROR!!!” Both of these are capped with three exclamation points so you know you have to take it seriously.
But no, what I like the most is the kung fu black man on the right side of the poster. Mr. Warhawk Tanzania! That’s a fucking name and a half, ain’t it? Seriously, you can hope for, nay, EXPECT, two things from a name like that – 1) he’s gonna kick ass and 2) he ain’t gonna take no jive from anybody no how. Continue reading “Devil’s Express (1976)”
