On today’s episode, Patsy the Angry Nerd and I discuss a couple of really good ones: 2 Champions of Shaolin from the Shaw Brothers, and the Spaghetti Western, Trinity is Still My Name with Terence Hill and Bud Spencer.
In Champions, Two young warriors from the Ming loyalist Shaolin Clan are engaged in a deadly secret mission that could bring down the Qing empire. The Venoms are back except for Philip Kwok who sat this one out, but helped with the fight choreography.
In Trinity, Bambino tries to teach his brother Trinity how to become an outlaw, but the two wind up saving a pioneer family and breaking up an arms ring instead. This movie is hilarious and a must see!
We also get into some discussion about the Drive-In Super Monster Rama, as well as some correspondence, so check it out!
Trinity is Still My Name is available on Amazon Prime. The DVD of 2 Champions of Shaolin can be found here:
