Welcome to our island, Mr. Roper…

Posted in Welcome on March 23, 2010 by Michael S. Moore

Just as Han welcomed John Saxon in Enter the Dragon, I welcome all of you to my little corner of the world, full of acrobatics, kicks, stunts, and folks who just love to beat the crap out of people with speed and grace. Joy. Just so you know, Kiai (pronounced Key-eye) is what you hear many martial artists yelling right before they hit something, as a way of channeling their concentration. A battle cry, if you will. Either way, they yell, someone gets hurt. I wanted to create a site for those who love martial art films of all kinds. And I mean Martial Arts only, so while I love Chow Yun Fat in Hard Boiled just like many of you, it ain’t (yeah, I used ain’t.) got no place here. I’m a writer of sorts, but this is a first time thing for me, so if you don’t like it, or if you do, let me know. I hope I’ll get better as time goes on.  For all of the movies I’ll review, one set of films you won’t find me reviewing are Steven Seagal films. Nothing against the guy, but a fellow by the name of Vern has done the best reviews of his films you’ll ever see. You can read them at Great stuff.

I’m also starting a Video Store of the Month section, and I also want you folks out there to email me any cool martial art video stores in your area. Spot me an email with their physical address and website, and they’ll get posted at some point. Some readers out there may not know where to find the good stuff, and together we’ll let ’em know.

Starting in April I’ll be posting new reviews each week, probably one a week to start, but I’ll do more as time goes on. First up? It has to be the one and only Bruce Lee-The Big Boss puts his best foot forward April 2nd.
