The Magic braid ...

Postby Athena » Sat Oct 30, 2010 7:25 pm

Swordsman At Double Towntown Flag is a classic !!
I will add another one I like a lot too !

THE MAGIC BRAID (1986) !
[img]http://content9.flixster.com/movie/10/65/09/10650999_pro.jpg[/img]
It stars :
Yawei Wang as Sha'er ( This guy is fantastics !!!!)
Baoguo as Bolihua
Shouli Xui as Yun Yuhua
Yan Zhang as Yin Zixian
Xin Cheng as Fourth Uncle Liu ( great old time supporting actor we all know !!)
Yuen Qiu as Hu Ma

Gust appearance by some odd looking westerners not named !!
Directed & written by esteemed & multi talented (IMO) Zien Zhang!!

Great story... Exzelent fairly down to earth Wush/Kung fu !

& I love the ending ,it is a HAPPY one (Can you believe it ?? !) !! A bit of political propaganda squeezed in too before the fade out to the end credits !! ;D

I have many more favorite Mainland movies but I will wait to the "Masters Two" have spoken !

Good point Chi !!

[Quote=Chi Liu San] not seen this one yet Athena, thanks for the recommendation, will have to get hold of this and investigate.|:o[/Quote]
Hello Chi !

Yes they are both definetly worth a look !
But you are pinpointing a very valid issue here, most mainland movies are not so easy to get a hold of ..
(I don't mean the very new stuff, we can usually get that even if it means no English subs, but they are improving on the English sub deal !!)

This is just too bad ! Any one who can recommend good sources for us to get more of the mainland stuff PLEASE DO SO ?? Thank you !

for "where to buy" question, we wrote sth here:
[url]http://mainlandoldschoolmovies.blogspot.com/2010/10/where-to-buy.html[/url]

about Story of Book and Sword ,any further info? dunno, sth like cast or director ^^

as far as we are concerned one of the best kung fu movie so far from China is Wu Dang. Just outstanding. Here the link:

about Magic Braid,it's indeed a great movie although sometime it can be boring (especially during the last battle, too long). Here the link of our trailer/comment:

We also have the original poster ;)

the amazon looks very promising !

& I already use Sensasian for SOME things too ...

Re : Wu dang yes it is an outstanding movie ( but I only have the bootleg ;(...) But it is not my absolute top choice ..But I love the performers & off course the strong Female Heroine ..She is far beyond outstanding IMO !!! Another big plus is the real life (no glamour what so ever ) "look"of the movie ..

But it is just my personal opinion , maybe I should get the legit one if you mean it is a lot better ??

Magic Braid is cool. Swordsman From Double Flag town is an amazing film. I like Undaunted Wudang, Prides Deadly Fury, South Shaolin Master, Arhats in Fury. There are a bunch that I have to get english titles of.

Arhats in Fury was just to depressing for me ...
The cutting of his ligaments ...The birds & the Blood thing ... BUT it is a HIGH quality film no doubt !! [img]http://www.mybroadwayvideo.info/catalog/images/arhats_in_fury.jpg[/img]

Well the official mainland dvd for WuDang doenst carry any subs but we actually don't care,you know we prefer legit released if they are available. In our opinion ,since u already know the plot I suggest you to buy the original release too
You know, my brother and i love flicks where there is a strong female heroine,so thats why we like WuDang even more ;)

About amazon.cn .. yeah the website is packed with every legit mainland products, the only thing you have to know is some chinese ^^, we ll suggest u to visit buyoyo as well :)

Anyway since there is much talk about magic , check "[url link=http://mainlandoldschoolmovies.blogspot.com/2010/10/magic-legs-1988.html]The Magic Legs (无敌鸳鸯腿)(1988)[/url]" [click the name if you want to see the trailer we made]; it has something wrong, like most of the soundtrack and the background for the last battle (u ll understand if u watch the movie or read our comment).. still it's worth you time, also thx to the priceless female heroine hehe

i dunno the year luv but its up on hkmdb as 1987 with this still.

and Pete jr has the part 2 on Flk. I have this flick in part 1 but never watched it.

Story of Book and Sword Part 2
aka The Romance Of Book & Swoard Part 2

[/Quote]

is it possible that the movie is inspired by the 1987 tvseries of the same title?

here some stills from the 1987 tvb:

[img]http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/5514/img227681151.jpg[/img]

both if them are inspired by the novel "The Book and the Sword"..

anyway..since today is halloween..on our blog we posted a mainland movie called Strange Love of a Ghost (1992)..for further details, [url link=http://mainlandoldschoolmovies.blogspot.com/2010/10/strange-love-of-ghost-1992.html]click me[/url] ; the movie might not be as good as "A chinese ghost story & co." but still something really rare from the red land.
