Not only does the film bring Jackie Chan together with the legendary director of THE KILLER and HARD BOILED, but it also features fellow Seven Little Fortunes alumni Sammo Hung (who was also the stunt co-ordinator), Yuen Baio and Yuen Wah!

It doesn’t go well. Featuring one of the most out there endings we’ve ever encountered, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Come check it out!

An intense, disturbing, film about two self-destructive Turkish immigrants in Germany who enter a marriage of convenience but end of falling in love makes for often challenging viewing, but is it a FORGOTTEN GEM?

On this episode of The Films of John Singleton we’re doubling up one of his most interesting – and prescient – features with a film from one of the biggest franchises of all time! We start by taking a look at 1995’s HIGHER LEARNING, a sometimes stodgy but ultimately worthwhile look at the various troubles and conflicts that occur among a group of college freshmen. Then we move onto the eye-blistering neon of the big-budget 2003 sequel 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS!

Try to avoid whiplash on this one. Check it out!

Check out John Singleton being interviewed on Charlie Rose in 1995.

Following the failure of NEW FIST OF FURY to launch the career of Jackie Chan, producer Lo Wei took another swing with the Chen Chi-Hwa-directed SHAOLIN WOODEN MEN from 1976. Featuring a story of revenge and intrigue, as well as the titular hallway of chain-operated wooden men, the film – thankfully – strays away from trying to recreate Bruce Lee’s persona and we get something closer to the Jackie Chan roles that would launch him to stardom. Closer… but not quite there. Check it out!
