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”.

Larva Island on Netflix

I may be late to the party but I’ve just discovered a Netflix Original animated show, “Larva Island.” I won’t even try to explain it, just watch if you can…. And do it when you’re not drinking milk or you’ll blow it out your nose 🤣

Fututama ! Futurama !

Oh my stars and holy garters !

Mobile game Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will include “new stories from the original writers, cast and animators,” says a producer of the classic cartoon show.

As Professor Farnsworth would say, “Good news, everyone…”

Wait! Don’t turn tail and run! Keep reading — you’re not being tasked with making a delivery to Ebola 9, the virus planet. No, the news is we’ll soon see a new Futurama mobile game, and this time around, none other than show creator Matt Groening will be involved.

Yup that’s the same Groening (“rhymes with complaining”) who masterminded “The Simpsons” (and, for you real oldsters, the classic comic strip “Life in Hell”).

He’ll be joined by Futurama Executive Producer David X. Cohen and, according to a press release out Wednesday from game developers TinyCo and Fox Interactive, “much of the team behind the beloved series.”

It sounds, then, like the game — Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow — may go far beyond last year’s Futurama: Game of Drones, a Candy Crush-like puzzle title.

“I love this game because it feels just like Futurama,” Groening says of Worlds of Tomorrow in the release. “Except now you get to jab the characters in the face.”

Cohen adds in the release that “we’ve got completely new stories from the original writers, cast, and animators,” and in an interview with USA Today he said he and his crew told the developers, “Oh, you guys wanna do a game? That’s fine. But we’re gonna sneak some more Futurama episodes in there on whatever device people are gonna be using.”

The on again, off again cartoon series ran from 1999 to 2003 on Fox. After its cancellation, Comedy Central picked it up in 2008; then cancelled it again in 2013. But you can still catch reruns of “Futurama” on Comedy Central and Netflix.

In the new game, Cohen told USA Today, players will get to “re-create the Futurama universe;” send Fry, Leela and Bender on missions to other planets; and battle Futurama foes. “You’re god of Futurama,” he told the publication.

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow is “coming soon” via Apple’s App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, according to the release.
