Opinion – RIP Run Run Shaw

Back in the 1970’s I spent some time in the Philippines. There was a love there for martial arts that still continues today. In the years I was living there I was able to see many great Kung Fu films, but the very best were made by Shaw Brothers, the Hong Kong studio built by Run Run Shaw. He brought the popularity of Kung Fu to the world. Like Hammer Films always made the very best Horror Films, Shaw Brothers at the start of a film always meant it was a good martial arts film. Run Run Shaw was 107 years old. What a classy guy!

In another brief note. If you’re planning on heading out to see Paranormal Activity:The Marked Ones, you may want to stop and reconsider. I saw it last night, and my review will be coming up very soon, perhaps tomorrow, but I can warn you that it’s the worst film I’ve seen in a movie theater in a long, long, long, long time.
