cortandfatboy don't know how they've managed to run their Midnight Movies for six years without it occurring to them that they've never shown a kung-fu flick before. They've shown pretty much every style, every genre, and somehow, the martial arts have escaped us. They've shown action, drama, comedy, and musical, but they've never put on a legitimate ballet of brutality, flurries of fists and feet whistling across the screen like a hurricane of pain.
So if they're gonna show a martial arts movie? They're gonna show the martial arts movie: ENTER THE DRAGON.
Watch Jim Kelly create an instant legend. Watch John Saxon smarm his way into America's heart. But most importantly, watch BRUCE LEE wreck what seems like three million human beings (including Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan, who appear as stuntmen in the film) in three million different ways. But he's not all sneering death and destruction. The man was a teacher, and there is much to learn from ENTER THE DRAGON.
So on March 2nd? Be like water. Pour yourself into the Bagdad Theater, and focus, or you will miss all that heavenly glory playing out on the big screen, the way it was meant to be seen.
