Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: April (24 movies items)

"First viewing - April 16th This is the FOURTH kung fu movie I've watched so far from 1978, which tells you something about the popularity of the genre at that point. It's also the third from Shaw Brothers, and about as good as the other two. Clearly they were on a roll that year. I can't say I'm too familiar with the cast of this one aside from Gordon Liu, but they all do a very good job. The way the story is constructed keeps it interesting & helps us get deeply invested in the main character."
