ThreeStoogesGoUndercover+1984-1-b

Remember when we did our Director’s Series on Nam Nai-choi and there was one movie in his filmography we couldn’t get or get subtitled? Well now we can have finally watched Nam’s 4th movie at Shaw Brothers. The comedy Three Stooges Go Undercover, starring Nat Chan, Kara Hui and Stanley Fung. Kenny B and Tom K-W bid farewell properly to the multi-faceted career of the director/cinematographer in their review.

The Director’s Series 8: Nam Nai-choi FINALE – The Cat

lao-mao-the-cat-1992-movie-poster

The grand finale to our LONG coverage of the unpredictable yet dependent Nam Nai-choi is here! The spotlight on the maker of social dramas, action adventure, gangster action, kangaroo action, rape revenge action, sex action, slime action and splatter action comes to a close as his filmography does as well. And we go out on a bang, hopefully a high as Nam Nai-choi revisits the legend of Wisely, adds b-movie fun, sci-fi, goo, gore and the ultimate battle between a space cat and the super-dog. Are you ready for The Cat from 1992?
