Enter The Dragon, 1973

Welcome back to another installment of Kung Fu February on Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers! This week Dion Baia and J. Blake are going back to the well, covering one of the original ‘tournament‘ films with a motion picture that not only, arguably, introduced the West–and the mainstream in general–to this style of movie, but also became a pillar for an entire genre. The boys are covering a classic and the legend who brought us this film, Bruce Lee and his masterpiece, Enter the Dragon, from 1973.

Blake and Dion also have a real treat in-store for this week, because joining them to discuss all things martial arts is their long-time friend and film school colleague, actor and podcaster, Michael C. Maronna!

So come listen to the trio discuss and analyze all things Bruce Lee and Enter The Dragon, as they explore the incredible journey that martial arts cinema’s greatest legend took to get himself and this movie to the screen–and the lasting legacy it had on the world, that Lee never lived to see.

    Sorry I’m late on this one.It’s funny cause this was a movie I saw WAAAAAAY later in life, but I knew it from the clips shown in the theatre scene in The Last Dragon and in the “Fist Full of Yen” parody. I thought when I eventually did see it, it wouldn’t have the same impact since I’ve seen it parodied time and time again…nope! I ended up enjoying the hell out of it.

    I got a personal kick out of Han talking to Bruce because Keye Luke dubbed Han’s voice, and since he was Kato in the Green Hornet serials, it was like Kato talking to Kato. It made me want to break out the NOW Comics run of The Green Hornet where they tied the serial and tv versions of the characters together in an interesting way.

    Guys, as always keep up the good work. 2018 has been amazing with the episodes and I loved seeing the Youtube link you guys put here for the 40th anniversary. Those are always fun to see.

      Thanks Jose! So glad you liked it AND still frequent the proper website. Ha. We should take a poll to see if anyone actually comes and checks out all the extras, or if it’s exclusive that’s only for you! Ha. And as always, thank you for your love and support. Keep being awesome! -Dion
