fat dragon

A kuenfist project about which he says: Hello friends of the fu. Today i bring you my new custom DVD of “Enter the Fat Dragon”. This time uncut … the german Bootleg was still cut in one scene because they used the Crash Cinema DVD for the most parts for the picture and the fight with the kickboxer is cut in one scene here it is uncut. A few weeks ago a friend of mine gave me his prestine german first release VHS tape from 1982 to make a copy. The tape was in such a good shape i can’t belief it. I remaster the picture ( no NeatVideo where used so no lose of details and not washed out picture ) and the crash cinema DVD for the inserts ( 13 minutes where taken from the crash DVD ). The inserts where converted careful to PAL without jerking. I encoded the movie to anamorph progressiv 50p. For the english dub i used a copy from the old UK VHS with the nunchak fight intact !!! The chinese track comes from the crash DVD. And the german from my VHSrip. Now we have a almost complete english dub only 2 parts in chinese but there are english hardsubs ( inserts from crash) and one sentence in german. The missing parts in the german dub are now in english, only the same 2 scenes as in the english track are chinese.

Flames of Blood

flames

A lordretsudo project.

“This is Tai Kato’s penultimate work (and essentially his last work), an all-star jidaigeki and a full-fledged work in terms of style. The film is based on a story of Koichi Iiboshi and, IMHO, a masterpiece. The story is set in Bakumatsu and revolves around the Bunta Sugawara character, a yakuza (of course but instead of a modern yakuza/gangster, he’s a gambler/bakuto). After he kills someone and gets wound, is saved by a blind woman (Mitsuko Baishô), who took care of him. They has a happy time under the protection of the Tomisaburo Wakayama character, an oybun. But of course, happy time doesn’t last long. The story is also related to Okada Izo and the Shinsengumi (w/ Kondo Isami played by Makoto Sato) In his later works, 45 degree, 90 degree and 180 degree cuts become the intrinsic norm, as a result, there are many frontal shots and the space representation is often (momentarily) ambiguous. Camera movements are rare and only used in specific scenes. So the expressiveness of his cinema replies largely on editing. Still in this film there are quite some interesting long takes.”

woman unt

A LuigiBastardo project.

“In what could only be described as Eddie Romero’s version of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, the 1973 sleazefest THE WOMAN HUNT finds our Filipino auteur assembling a bevy of beauties boasting big boobies by a really not-at-all-nice guy in order to hunt them down in the jungles. And who’s that there ready to save the day? Why naturally, it’s John Ashley, kids – during the midst of his co-producing/starring role ride with Romero – and he’s joined here by veteran character actor Sid Haig. Also starring the busty talents of Pat Woodell, Charlene Jones, Laurie Rose, and Lisa Todd. Ken Metcalfe and Eddie Garcia also star. Jack Hill co-wrote the story, Roger Corman served as co-executive producer and his New World Pictures banner distributed the title in the US.” LB

boss

A lordretsudo project.

“When two Girl Bosses fight each other over territory, their enmity is difficult to solve – they are equals in looks, strength, determination, and power of their respective girl gangs. So, the way is open to a mischievous Yakuza Boss who invites them for a peaceful way to decide their feud: a sexual challenge for him to decide who is the better Girl Boss. Trapped, both are subject to the man’s lust and sadistic assaults. They escape by joining forces against the yakuza gang, though it costs one of the young women her life – when she was friends already with her former enemy.”

casa

A luigibastardo project.

“Casimiro, night watchman at a wax museum of horrors, is even more sleepy than his usual laziness makes him – because his boss, the Professor, is secretly draining blood from him while he dozes to use in experiments in raising the dead. These haven’t worked so far, and the bodies have been waxened and placed on display in the museum to cover his crimes. His big chance seems to come, however, when he learns that the mummified body of a modern man has been found in an Egyptian sarcophagus. The professor and his two henchmen steal the body and take it back to his lab – where the experiment flops again. Or it seems to. While the villains are out of the lab, and Casimiro sleeps on duty, a bolt of lightning gives the electrical boost which the Professor’s machinery has needed, and the body comes back to life. Then the clouds part, the full moon shines through, and the resurrected one becomes a were- wolf. When Casimiro sees it wandering the museum, no one will believe him, not even Paquita, his girlfriend. But the professor finds his subject alive and soon witnesses a transformation. Eventually, the creature escapes him and makes off into the night, terrorizing the city and ending up at Paquita’s apartment…” ~imdb

bruce

A kuenfist project about which he says: First i wanted to use the french print (thanks to JohnLiu who upped it on ADC) but it was also as the ocean shore VCD 1.66:1 and more than the VCD badly cropped. The VCD was squeezed 1.66:1 fullscreen i reencoded it back to anamorph widescreen for the inserts to make the german version uncut (the german version is 9 minutes cut). The german VHSrip was not in the best condition (got this in a trade some years ago ), in first place the audio that is why i did not DUB my version with the german track, and i was not able to get the VHS to make a own rip. The german VHS is very rare. But with some AviSynthfilters everything went fine and now we have a uncut version anamorphic widescreen with a acceptable picture. For the DUB i used the Tracks from the Ocean Shore VCD. The Dub was not so difficult only the chinese part took me some time.
