Lost in action somewhere in a long forgotten jungle hell...

Alright, maybe not actually lost in action but I'm sure you've noticed the absence of my presence anyhow. I've been doing blogs for the past 6 years and before that print fanzines for much longer - and I feel a bit tired. So it's time to take a break. No need to worry, mate, this isn't the end but as I said a break. I've already shut down my other blogs and this here is the last one to go on stand-by. Do people even read blogs any more? There was certainly more interaction in the early days. But then again I never did When the Vietnam War Raged... in the Philippines for the sake of interaction but simply to cover a category of films that hardly nobody covered. Anyhoo, thanks to everyone who's helped me along the way. Be seeing you.

  1. Well, it's too bad. Your writing was great. Your interest in forgotten action cinema directly corresponded to mine and you turned me onto a lot of good stuff. So thankyou.

  4. Have you ever heard of a movie called "Savage" from 1973? It was shot in the Philippines. You might consider it interesting.

  5. Yes, I have heard about it, and I also posted a short documentary video about the film a while back. It seems I forgot to put the link up on the page, but you can check the doc here:

    Thanks for your suggestion, Angelo. It was one of the films that Shout Factory were going to put out on a restored dvd but they decided to cancel it in the end. Too bad. I have it on vhs.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
