ip man kung fu master trailer

There have been more than a few movies based on the life of Ip Man, the grandmaster of the martial art Wing Chun who counted Bruce Lee among his students. The films are meant to be biographical, but like most movies based on real-life figures, they play fast and loose with the truth. That’s fine. I doubt at this point anyone is coming into an Ip Man movie looking for facts. The latest entry is Ip Man: Kung Fu Master, which goes back to Ip’s early days during the Communist Revolution of 1949. Watch the Ip Man: Kung Fu Master trailer below. Read More »

If, like me, you got excited at the very idea of seeing footage from a new Wong Kar Wai film, then dial it down a bit. Because while, yes, this is a brief teaser for the great director’s new film The Grandmasters — his own take on the same story told in the film Ip Man — there isn’t actually any film footage here. But fans will want to check it out anyway, and we’ve also got images of Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi as they appear in the film, as a consolation prize. Read More »

Paul Verhoeven has enough trouble finding love from critics as it is, so it’s no wonder that a filmmaker emulating Verhoeven would have an even harder time. Repo Men was ripped apart by critics when it hit theaters, and its box office performance did little to compensate. On DVD though, it stands to shine. Those who love Verhoeven’s absurdist mix of grotesquely over-the-top violence and cynical satire will likely be able to overlook many of the film’s shortcomings, such as its trite romance and repellant characters. I can see why a lot of people would hate the film, but there’s a trashy weirdness to it that kept me interested—enough, anyway, to suggest considering it for a rental.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Both rated and unrated cuts of the film will be included, as well as deleted scenes, The Union Commericals, an Inside the Visual Effects featurette.
