pof157

Jimmy Wang Yu was heading away from the eye of Chang Cheh’s by making his own, now classic kung-fu movie The Chinese Boxer and Chang Cheh had found new talents and vision at the end of the 70s that would lead to an impact in global popular culture through his 1978 classic The Five Venoms. The impact of the two works is discussed and dissected by Kenny B, Dr. David Lam and Tom K-W but not before the doctor shares what filth he watched last.
