We need more Zuey. *stalk* *stalk* *stalk*

We also need more Club Mario references.

When I think of what a real Club Mario would be like, I think of the dance club scene from the Super Mario Bros. movie, that has the terrible, terrible George Clinton version of "Walk The Dinosaur".

I imagine there would have to be goombas as bouncers at such a club.

If only people knew about this...

Ill just quote from Fast Karate:

"Dont worry Rbx, I have known about this movie for 5 or 6 years now, and I even own the thing on DVD too. When the long forgotten Anole Anime store existed near the NC State University, the owner of the store had this in his dollar dvd shelf and I was excited that he had this thing. I told him about it and he just said "I have had this movie for years and never have seen it, so im getting rid of that and other things from my collection."

But I first heard about this film from a forum that belonged to people who were into the Initial D arcade games (this was 2005 or so) and someone mentioned this movie when someone else brought up the Jackie Chan "City Hunter" movie that had the Street Fighter spoof in that. I knew about the LA Street Fighter spoof because an old .mpeg file existed on Kazaa years before that I got a hold of, but never knew anything about this film. I was able to get a Raw of this online at the time and enjoyed the heck out of it. And as stated in my FK quote, I was able to get the thing on DVD.

I guess as suggestions, you could do the live action City Hunter movie, but I think I have listed other things in the past episodes like Reb Brown films and California Crisis (which you guys mentioned when you did your Cosmo Police Justy review). I want to throw in my hat and join in if you ever talk about Lone Wolf McQuade on the podcast, even if that is straight up Paul Chapman / Daryl Surat territory. Till next time...

yeah that one scene in live

yeah that one scene in live action City Hunter is probably the closest we'll ever get to a full, perfect Street Fighter II movie, Future Cops is more like a typical HK movie from the time starting with a ripped off premise and ending up something completely different.

HK movies from this era are the best imo, lots of contemporary settings (can't stand boring period movies ala Jet Li), and a good mix of quick action and good, dumb, goofy comedy. I think I probably saw Future Cops on SBS or on VCD in the '90s at some stage, you made me want to rewatch, I sold all my VCDs years ago, want to track down the LD or DVD now..
