Hey! It's My First Post! So, Enjoy Some Kung Fu!


I should probably use my first post to tell you my life story and pimp the books I've published, but fuck that. If you actually found ToddRigney.com, then you know who I am. And there are links at the top where you can find my bio and my books. So, yeah. Enough of that shit. Oh, and the featured image is from Raw Force, not the movie I'm getting ready to present.

When it comes to movies, I love two things: cheese and violence. And if you can somehow blend these elements into one 90-minute cinematic spectacle, then I'm gonna be a very happy individual. That's why I spend a lot of time watching kung fu movies - the older and cheesier, the better. Thankfully, we live in a world where it's incredibly easy to find these lost gems, which means I spend a lot of time on YouTube watching forgotten kung fu movies from decades ago.

Like an old man. Yeah, I said it. Like an old fucking man.

Whoever runs the Wu Tang Collection on YouTube is a goddamn genius. And a saint. And a helluva swell individual. There are hundreds of Chinese action/kung fu movies on this channel, and they're all free. Sure, the quality isn't the greatest, the subtitles are often cut off due to the movie's hideous full-frame presentation, and the English dubbing is frequently beyond, but that's just part of the charm. Plus, you take what you can get. I've watched more than a few movies on this channel, and I plan to create a section on this site dedicated to the flicks I've consumed. Whether you choose to indulge in these gifts is up to you.

The first movie you should check out is Twins of Kung Fu. The story is garbage and the quality might make those who love 4K have low-resolution nightmares for weeks, but it's a terribly fun flick that doesn't skimp on the bad dubbing or kung fu insanity. I'm not going to spend any time reviewing the flick (what's the point?), so just sit back and dive into Twins of Kung Fu.
