" Date: 2/3/2021 Viewed: Netflix Re-Watch Note: The Shaw Brothers have made many amazing movies and it's hard to pick just one to watch. I end up watching The Five Venoms aka The Five Deadly Venoms (I like that title better BTW) instead because it was on Netflix. This movie is still awesome from beginning to end. Chang Cheh (the director) knows how to make top-notch wuxia action movies in my opinion. The action sequences are well done and I always love the characters in the movie. What I also "

I did find the concept of this one to be interesting and I was honestly surprised by how brutal it got by the second half. "

"First viewing - April 1st This month will have plenty of Shaw Brothers films, which is cool because I've been wanting to do a run through them for a while now. Thanks to Netflix I'm able to without making a dozen trips to my local video store, which is pleasantly convenient.
