The Blu-ray reissue of the 1979 martial arts film Monkey Kung Fu is a Hong Kong cult classic from the Shaw Brothers. Weirdly wonderful, it involves gangs, a one-eyed criminal, mysticism, non-stop action – everything except actual monkeys as kung fu masters. The Blu-Ray of Shaolin Mantis is another amusing action gem.
This awesome clip from The Hood Internet rewinds time 40 years to one of the most notable moments in the history of music, combining 50 of the biggest songs of 1979 into one monster mashup. The year was was one of transition, as disco’s glimmer started to fade, giving way to new wave, punk, rap, and a rock resurgence.
