SPIRITUAL KUNG FU Available on Blu-ray & DVD from 88 Films (UK / 26 October)

Made during Jackie Chan’s early apprenticeship to director Lo Wei – the man who made Bruce Lee a star – Spiritual Kung Fu sees Chan as a novice at the Shaolin Temple, who learns martial arts from a very unusual set of masters: the ghosts who haunt the temple. Under their spectral tutelage, he gains the skills he needs to defend Shaolin during its darkest hour… The Shaolin Masters of 88 Films are proud to present this classic slice of vintage chop-socky on beautiful Blu-ray (remastered on 2K) and DVD.

“The Five Style Fists has been lost for centuries.”

Mortal (2020, Norway / USA / UK) Review

Mortal (2020, Norway / USA / UK) Review

A grubby and disheveled young man wanders through the Norwegian countryside. He’s clearly distressed and disoriented. He sticks to lonely places and avoids people, but everyone has to eat and eventually he ventures close to town. Trying again to escape into the woods, he is harassed by a gang of youths. The encounter is one he attempts to evade, but it ends up being far more disastrous for the bullies, than for him. In Mortal, director André Øvredal again delves into Scandinavian mythology as his did in Trollhunter.

“He’s been in the woods all this time?”

Dragonheart Vengeance (2020, USA) Review

Dragonheart Vengeance (2020, USA) Review

The latest Dragonheart was only released this year, but continuity wise it takes place between Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse and Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire. This is a standalone film however, and the only mention to a previous film in the series occurs during the opening minutes, when it explained that this story focuses on one of dragons born from the dragon eggs in Dragonheart 3.

Dragonheart Vengeance is a film of Dragonheart firsts in many regards, and I wonder if this will be a new direction for the franchise.

“I’m out to avenge the death of my mother and father.”

Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire (2017, USA) Review

Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire (2017, USA)

Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire is a sequel to the third film, Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse, but you don’t need to see the earlier film to understand the plot. Battle for the Heartfire begins during the last moments of King Gareth, the once young knight from Dragonheart 3 (now played by Valeriu Bazu), and focuses on potential rival rulers. The dragon in this story is still Drago from the previous film, but he is now voiced by Patrick Stewart; whose voice is on par with Sean Connery as Draco from the original Dragonheart.

“Boy king! You ready for a man’s death?”
