Yeah. I think Bluefin are just doing toys for now. Belts and such. Shinichirô Shirakura (one of the producers of Kamen Rider and he's director of Planning and Production at Toei) is active on Twitter and for better or worse, has interacted with english-speaking fans (I say "worse" after the time someone asked him about Zi-O Trinity form when it leaked and we weren't supposed to know about it yet. Kinda soured him on the western fanbase for a while).

They have to know. Fansubs have been a thing for well over a decade at this point. People outside of Japan want to see these shows, and repurposing footage into Power Rangers doesn't always cut it.

Mal, just watched "Furie" last night. It's a great Vietnamese revenge movie about a mother's efforts to recover her kidnapped daughter. It's an Asian "Taken". Excellent fight scenes!

The backdrop village scenery was fun to see and very real.

Took a while to find it but I found it. There's a couple different movies all with the same title it turns out.

Looks interesting though, maybe it should be the movie of the week...



Movies like these make me think I must be racist. Because I see a trailer like this and it's a white girl and I'm like, "Please, no skinny little white girl is whupping peoples asses like that", but I see the same trailer and it's a little Asian woman and I'm like, "looks legit!"

:laugh2:


A Happy 74th Birthday to an absolute legend, Hiroshi Fujioka:



Awesome. Happy birthday to the #1 Henshin Hero!

Absolutely! I'd watch it again.

The movie is in Vietnamese with English subtitles. Yet my wife kept asking me what they were saying as she couldn't understand the Saigon accent. :rofl: :rofl:

The intensity of the heroine (Van Ngo) is off the dial. And the fight scenes feel real, not FX type stuff.

So far there are only 8 episodes of The Mandalorian (Season One, no episodes for Season two yet) and 4 of Picard, though a 5th might be out.

Outstanding, Mal! It will be interesting to see the bonus features. The directing of this movie is incredable. Far beyond anything I expected from the small Vietnamese movie industry. Thank you! My wife is visiting her sister and niece tonight for an overnight, so I'm on my own.

I'll be amp building and watching the movie. What sucks about it is that I have to read the subtitles so it makes it difficult to work on amps.

No I was going to watch it tonight or this weekend. It looks good and I don't think I ever watched a Vietnamese movie so I'm curious.

This one is in English! After watching this try it in Vietnamese as there's so much more emotion in the dialog.

Options good Sir, there are options.

You can watch it as you like.

Ah! I suggest watching in Vietnamese. The dubbed English seriously takes away from the mood. It breaks the entire vibe of the movie.

thanks for putting up 7 Samurai. That's the best digital rendering I've ever seen on that flick. Plus it had the intermission with the kabuki intermezzo intact. Big bonus!

Do you have Cobra Kai? I watched the first episode on YT and it looks really good. I might see if you can throw that one up when we get closer to Korea and possibly China when I can actually download stuff. (I still need to grab Mando 6-8 and the new SW, too....:))
