Taiwan Noir 7: Golden Queen’s Commando & Pink Force Commando

postimage

Take a bunch of good looking, iconic girls, plant them in movie reality courtesy of die hard movie nerd Chu Yen-Ping and you get products that probably outrages most rather than delights but that’s ok. It sparks conversation if it’s an homage or not to steal so many scenes from other movies and their music for your own. For this episode of Taiwan Noir therefore you have to imagine a paralell movie world where everything is possible. We got 80s pop star haircuts, a wild west town with 80s style grafitti, Chinese Nazis, the Ku Klux Clan and a lot is set to Ennio Morricone’s music. It’s of course a double bill of Taiwanese reefer madness in the form of Golden Queen’s Commando and Pink Force Commando! In Last Taiwanese Movies Watched, there’s challenges in devil areas and Joey Wong in a boobie flick that is equally short and long.

Fist Of Legend (1994)

Genre: Martial Arts/Historical

Cast: Jet Li, Chin Sui-Ho, Shinobu Nakayama

For those of you who aren’t in the know about this already. I shall tell you. Fist of Legend is a politically correct remake of Fist of Fury. Only main difference being that some of the Japanese characters aren’t evil and there is a bit more of a story to it. Read the rest of this entry »
