JFD288: Fists/Clan of the White Lotus, Fear City, The Quiet Earth
First up! It's Clan of the White Lotus from 1980! This Shaw Brothers classic is a semi-sequel to Executioners from Shaolin, starring Gordon Liu and Lieh Lo in one of your classic Monk versus Eyebrows matchups. Come for the feminine fighting-fu, stay for the repeated nut kicks.
Up next! Fear City is one of Abel Ferrara's lesser discussed early works, but is that a complete mistake? We'll find out as we discuss this sleazy 1984 Times Square set thriller. Starring Melanie Griffith as a stripper!
Finally! New Zealand delivers a chillingly effective post-apocalyptic thriller in The Quiet Earth from 1985. A single man roams the earth following a disaster. It's sort of like I Am Legend, but with less bullshit.
All this plus witty banter between friends, Nerd News, DVDs, game genie codes for Fallout 4, #bostonstrong, speculation on the weirdness of Matthew Sweetman's boners, Heath from Dallas with a Pumpkin Spice Update, your weekly Vanilla Ice recap, RIP Tom from Adelaide, old dead leather balls, Internet ponzi schemes 3000 (get money), betamax bygones be bygone, absolute confidentiality, a crippling cornucopia of crotch kicking combat, Melanie Griffith's rude titties, a post-apocalyptic kiwi, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!
