SBS is getting more and more lovin’. I had a peek at this week’s TV guide and spotted the following kungfu and asian movies:
Monday 11pm – Come Drink With Me – another Shaw Brothers action movie
Tuesday 11pm – The Magic Blade – a Shaw Brothers sword fighting movie
Friday 10pm – Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Friday 12.10am – A Chinese Odyssey – a spoof of other Chinese movies
I’m not sure how many people SBS thinks they’re going to get watching Crouching Tiger when it’s at the same time as the Opening Ceremony and probably in quite a few people’s DVD libraries, but A Chinese Odyssey would be a good way to relax and have a few laughs after the Olympics.
An excellent follow on from last week’s marathon.
A little birdy told me about something on TV this week – keep your eyes glued on SBS every night this week as they are having a load of kungfu/fighting/Asian movies! Must be to replace the Tour de France – I wonder if they think there is some strong intersection between cycling enthusiasts and kungfu movie lovers?
Monday 28th – The 36th Chamber of Shaolin
Tuesday 29th – Beautiful Boxer
Wednesday 30th – The Smashing Machine
Thursday 31st – The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter
Friday 1st – Kung Fu Hustle
Saturday 2nd – New Police Story
I haven’t seen The 36th Chamber of Shaolin yet, but have been wanting to get the DVD for ages. Many people regard it as one of the best kungfu movies of all time! Better make sure there is enough space left on the PVR.
