Kung Fu Hustle on Netflix !

“In a time of social unrest and disorder the gangs run amok. The most feared is the Axe Gang. Only in the poorest districts, which hold no interest for the gangs, can people live in peace. ”

If you love Chinese Kung Fu movies, twisted humor, great special affects, incredible action, weird and wonderful directing with love and inner strength triumphing over all.. Then this is the film for you.

Why is it one of my all time favorite flicks ? Because I find it unique and because it mashes together all the fun of the old Kung Fu movies with plot themes of Chinese mythology. The characters are surprising and weird. The choreography of fight scenes is done from unusual camera angles.

Written, directed and acted by Stephen Chow, you can see the best version… In the original Canton with English subtitles.

Yes, yes.. It is violent, and I usually avoid violence in my movies, but it is done with a purpose, much like the Kill Bill films.

Am I biased because this movie’s plot weaves around a humorous take on Buddhist martial arts.. Definitely !

So, if you get Netflix, I highly recommend this movie. You can also find it available on other platforms.

Come back and tell me what you think after you’ve watched “Kung Fu Hustle”.

My Amazon Movie Choices For November

Here’s My November Watch List On Amazon Prime (in no particular order) :

🎬 BECKET

Why ? Peter O’Toole paired with Richard Burton make for some of the finest acting ever captured in film, and you might just learn some history too.

🎬 EVERYTHING AND NOTHING : THE AMAZING SCIENCE OF EMPTY SPACE

Learn a bit of real science. You’ll have to use some brain cells to grasp some of the concepts but I have faith in you. After you’ve digested what you’ve just learned you can apply that knowledge to this next film choice…

🎬 THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE EIGHTH DIMENSION

Why ? Peter Weller as our hero, John Lithgow as one heck of a wacked out space alien.

🎬 LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

Why ? Great cast (like Steve Martin as a biker dentist), great songs and the giant, people eating plant.

🎬 GALAXY QUEST

Why ? You don’t need a reason to watch this movie over and over. It’s so funny on so many levels and, as usual, Tony Shalhoub runs away with the show.

🎬 LEGEND

Why ? Tom Cruise (before the Scientologists made him crazy) and Tim Curry as a massive demon… with style.

🎬 A FISH CALLED WANDA

Why ? Because you need a movie that’s histericaly clever all the way through and keeps you guessing until the end. Oh, and the humor is provided by a great cast including John Cleese and Michael Palin.

🎬 THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING

This is by far one of my favorite all time movies because of the unusual story along with Sean Connery and Michael Caine bringing Kipling’s wonderful characters to life.

And Finally…

🎬 PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE

Why ? If you haven’t heard how mixed up this movie is by now then you need to catch up. The plot makes no sense, the actors aren’t sure what the plan is and it’s one of those movies that’s so bad it’s good. A great addition to your Saturday night sci-fi marathon.

Well, that’s it for now. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member you can probably borrow some of these films from your public library. I hope you’ll discover a few you haven’t seen before.

Enjoy !
