Kung Fu Fridays in February 2012

Tonight, my KFF crew goes for an extreme change of pace with Norwegian Ninja, but February is already around the corner, and the next poster is out. The currently ubiquitous Nicholas Tse (he seems to be in everything, these days) is poster boy, heralding the following films to be shown at my home every Friday next month:

Iron Bodyguard - The 1973 Chang Cheh film proposes the director's usual brand of homo-eroticism and bloodshed, and it even advertises "male bonding" on the DVD case. It also says on there that Iron Bodyguard began the trend of real martial arts and furious action. Can it stand up to the hype?

Little Big Soldier - Jackie Chan stars in this recent comic adventure set in the Chinese Warlords period. It's a buddy movie too, with Leehom Wang playing Felix to Jackie's Oscar. Or perhaps the opposite.

The Stool Pigeon - How much betrayal can one person handle? Nicholas Tse can't very well be on the poster and not be in one of the films, in this case, on of those gritty crime tragedies Hong Kong is so good at.

The Avenging Eagle - Ti Lung actually won Asian Film Award for his role in this 1979 Shaw Brothers' wuxia epic. Looks to have some decent cinematography as well. Let the Clan warfare begin!

And that's what's on tap. Anyone excited?
