Top 10 Shaw Brothers Wuxia Films @ ShawBrothersUniverse.com!

 

How’s it going, Emulsionaires! I teamed up with Matt from Blood Brothers Film Reviews to write up a list of the Top 10 Shaw Brothers Wuxia Films for the official Shaw Brothers site! Check it out here and enjoy! And feel free to let me know what we got wrong in the comments. 😛

7 Years Old!

Alright, here we are again; another year is in the can! Silver Emulsion entered its 7th year about six weeks ago (on April 12th), but I just now had the time and the inclination to write this thing. I think I’ll try to keep this one short and sweet, but who knows… we could have a 2000-word behemoth on our hands by the end of this.

Well, I’ve done pretty well this year, keeping my nose to the grindstone and putting out reviews consistently. The Arnold series was finished off in the last year, including all the cameo roles I had on the list. I’ve also started the Silver Emulsion podcast, and somehow it’s already been nearly a year since I started doing that! I’ve also started writing reviews for the official Shaw Brothers website run by Celestial Pictures!

What’s going on in the next year / Did I predict correctly last year?

  • I predicted I might be close to finishing Jackie, but what’s remaining is still in the double digits. I am well into the 2000s, though, so I will most assuredly finish the series in Year 7… and maybe even before 2017 is over!
  • I just did a count and at my current pace of a new review every other week, I have almost exactly one year of Full Moon reviews left… which is pretty much exactly where I predicted I’d be last year. I must have cheated and counted them out or got a Review Almanac from the future or something. 🙂 But Jackie should finish first, so theoretically this would finish off sooner than one year, too.
  • I’m very happy to have exceeded my conservative Shaw Brothers prediction, ending up almost done with 1975 at this point. At this rate, I should be somewhere around 1977 by next year.
    • Although… with the Jackie and Full Moon series both potentially ending before Emulsion Year 8 begins, I might even be further along! Let’s hope that’s the case, and that I can successfully manage to then bang out two Shaw reviews a week! We’ll see!

Anyway, it’s been a great year for Silver Emulsion and I hope it was a good one for you, too. Here’s to another year of reviews! Thanks to everyone who reads, shares, comments or otherwise contributes to the overall thing that this website is. Hahaha, “the overall thing that this website is,” whatever the hell that means. 🙂

The Kingdom and the Beauty @ ShawBrothersUniverse.com!

Hey there, Emulsionites! My latest post for the official Shaw Brothers site went up yesterday! This time it’s a review of the 1959 Huangmei opera classic, The Kingdom and the Beauty, directed by Li Han-Hsiang! Check it out here and enjoy!

And if you’re looking to watch The Kingdom and the Beauty, your options are a bit limited at the moment. It was released on HK Region 3 DVD and HK Blu-ray, both of which are still available (as of this writing) via my favorite HK import retailer: DDDHouse.

Hello, faithful Emulsionites! Just wanted to post a short note here about my new gig writing for the official Shaw Brothers site run by Celestial Pictures: ShawBrothersUniverse.com.

I’m on a Podcast — Forgotten Filmcast #75: The Satan Bug

vintage-cat-headphones

After almost a year and a half, I’m back on a podcast! That’s how it goes when you don’t actively pursue those kinds of things. Anyway, you can hear me talk with Todd Liebenow of Forgotten Films on the 75th episode of his Forgotten Filmcast! We got together to discuss the 1965 John Sturges film The Satan Bug, a movie far less entertaining than its title. Commune with the pod and enjoy! I’ve embedded it below for quick listening, but if you wanna subscribe to the show or listen on a portable device you can head to iTunes, PodOmatic or Your Listen.

As always, I love feedback, so if you listen to the show let me know what you think! Thanks for listening!
