    What film is being discussed? Am I in the wrong thread?

    In any case, I'm sure I didn't like it, except for the director's scene in the middle at the end. And I loved the beginning!

    The black and white served as an exquisite juxtaposition to the vibrantly colored costumes. You just don't see that anymore.

    Couple friends have seen this and loved it. Probably check it out when it hits DVD.

    I watched it a few weeks ago, and it's fucking awesome! One of the best docs on 'genre' films I've seen. Highly recommended!

    I saw this a while ago. Very entertaining. I especially liked the part near the end where everyone was saying how Jimmy Wang Yu was a major asshole.

    Thanks! That actually sounds like a cool movie. And thank god it has nothing to do with those shiftless Australians (no offense to anyone, beautiful country and all, but I mean really)

    Saw this Monday in a theater in D.C.,loved it.Anybody who loves the likes of MAD MAX,THE MAN FROM HONG KONG,FELICITY,TURKEY SHOOT or RAZORBACK will certainly get a kick out of it.Loads of interviews and behind the scenes stuff.A real treat for Ozsploitation fans.
