My Pale Lover (1993) haiuken.com 2.5/5
I found an uncut copy. That was subtitled even!
Here's what I figure why: The opening scene has two Thai girls dancing on stage, touching each other. Then they take off the panties, and I guess the cameraman got carried away because one girl gives us a pretty good gynecological exam (see photo below). They also pop balloons with straws blowing darts from their coochies and the bartender opens a beer using one of the girl's vagina.
It's all tame of course, but for 1993 China, people's heads were probably exploding. And I found it kinda funny, in a mostly unintentional way, but also sometimes because it was so goofy (and sometimes inappropriate). 邢小路 Ying Siu-Liu character's name translates to Miss Cunt.
Lots of nudity and sex (and I mean a lot), and Chinese men acting goofy over it - goes on almost non-stop for the first 30+ minutes and then turns into a love story, I guess, and eventually Yvonne Yung Hung has a very NON revealing sex scene near the end. The second half isn't all a waste if you can appreciate a 5-minute lesbian sex scene with hot wax and an all-out orgy.
Somewhat entertaining, in a lurid, comical way.

Sex and the Emperor (1994) Haiuken 3.5/5
The young Emperor (Sung Boon-Chung) falls in love with a chambermaid (Yvonne Yung Hung), who of course he can't marry, and an evil nemesis has her sent away....
At the same time, the narrator of the story is the Emperor's eunuch, who is only half castrated and is banging the hot little Chin Gwan, but the Emperor's nemesis finds out and...
All the elements are here to make a great movie, and it does look good- lots of attractive naked people throughout, but... in the hands of Wong Jing the ending feels a little unsatisfying. A LOT unsatisfying. Like the premise, like the story, like the characters.... hate the ending, which doesn't do enough to endure the bad that happens throughout the movie.
Sexy, humorous, and actually filmed well, it's not as popular with critics as it was with me.

The Bedeviled (1975, Hong Kong) Haiuken 1.5/5
Reiko Ike late in her short career made a movie in Hong Kong about the rich rigging the system against a poor family in old China. Reiko plays the wife of the poor bastard that gets beheaded, in what is actually a pretty good scene in an otherwise slow and boring movie.
Reiko, of course, has a couple of nude scenes and looks great, but this is not a very entertaining movie.

Agreed. It's just about the most boring film you could possibly get with the Ike + Golden Harvest + Horror combination.

The Devil's Treasure (1973, Hong Kong) Haiuken 1/5
Wang Chun, played by O Chun Hung (the magistrate who gets haunted in the Bedevilled) plays an ass-kicking ocean diver that goes after sunken treasure for the mob. All hell breaks loose and he ends up running off with the treasure to his wife (Nora Miao).
Fast forward six or seven years later (they have a young daughter) and they're living a life of luxury in South Korea. Until the mobsters, with a young Sammo Hung (wearing a horrible fake mustache and eyebrows) show up and want the gold back. This happens at about the halfway point of the movie, which is a constant chase scene/gold search from then until the end. And I mean that in a bad way.
Sammo and O Chun Hung have a fight scene in the finale, which may seem even better than it is, because of how boring the rest of the movie is.
Not even worth it.

Clan of Intrigue (1977, Hong Kong) Haiuken.com 3.5/5
Three masters are killed with 'Magic Water' and Chu Liu Hsiang (the always great Ti Lung) is framed for it. A somewhat complicated plot that moves along at a nice pace, has some good fight scenes, with each scenario adding to the mystery and giving us clues. The conclusion is satisfying and for the time this was made, in some ways surprising.
Nora Miao as Kung Nan Yen, Ling Yun as the mysterious Invisible Sword ('cause it's fast), Betty Ti as Princess Yin Chi, Li Ching as Black Pearl.
Really enjoyed this.

Obviously a cut version because of some weird jumps, I did find this picture online to give the Nora Miao 'lesbian kiss' theories some fire, but like most everything to do with Nora Miao in her movie career... not much fire behind that 'kiss'. There's also a hint that her 'kisser', Betty Pei Ti, had a little more revealing of a scene in the movie but that was cut as well I guess.
Maybe someday I'll find a copy....

Ancient Chinese Whorehouse (1994) youtube 1.5/5
Man, when they get on a kick with something, they have no fear of overdoing it, do they? The jokes are getting thinner, the torture less fun, and the nudity fewer and farther between. And I can't even blame it on Wong Jing this time.
Some of the usual suspects are back - Yvonne Yung Hung, this time AS the madam (and giving us a beautiful full view from behind of her naked); Kent 'Fatty' Cheng with more of his usual shenanigans, King Yuen and more of HER usual shenanigans, and even a cameo from Elvis Tsui, in an ugly rape scene.
Newcomer (at the time) Ching Suet-Aan is sexy and naked a few times, to try and keep things interesting, but this is already an old idea that's been done so much better elsewhere.

Celestial Pictures used a censored master for Clans of Intrigue.

I think the only way to see it uncut now would be an old 35mm print, unless Celestial can be persuaded to do a new version for HD.

Romance of the Vampires (1994) xvideos 2/5
The story revolves around a vampire couple (Mondi Yau and Ben Lam) who come to Hong Kong, and a goofy escort agency that acts as a supplier of fresh meat for them.
Yvonne Yung Hung plays a blind girl, not a bad affliction to have for some of her movie roles, who is also a hooker for the agency. She's in the process of getting raped a second time in the first 30 minutes (this time a gang rape ordered by her ex, played by perennial bad guy Billy Chow), but she gets saved by the male vampire.
Of course she immediately ends up sleeping with him.
He wants to turn her into a vampire because she looks like his long lost love, and of course this makes his female vampire lover very jealous.
The nudity isn't as abundant as most Cat III's and they actually try to make the love scenes more erotic than sleazy, but it's just too silly at times to be taken seriously.

A Fake Pretty Woman (1995) internet 0.5/5
Yvonne Yung Hung plays a waitress who is unhappy in life and unhappy with her looks and decides to get plastic surgery after talking to a 'sex bomb' that all the guys at her restaurant are gaga over.
They actually go through what feels like the entire consultation process! (Some of the translation is funny - "The second way is to go underneath the tits."). Her morals are immediately compromised once she has her new boobs and 'look', giving her celebrity fame, but at what price? And a big message of learning is sent to us all. :roll:
There's drama, of course, the plastic surgeon's perfect marriage is compromised, someone is burned in a fire and NEEDS plastic surgery, Yung Hung is in a car accident (hilariously comical).... but in the end, the plastic surgeon saves the day. Oh brother.
Lawrence Ng plays a sleazy director and King Yuen, who seems to be in every one of Yung Hung's movies, is a nurse's assistant and plays her part straightforward. No room for comedy in THIS serious drama!
The Cat III rating isn't for sex; there are few boobies here and there, Yung Hung examining her new breasts is mostly the only highlight here, but we do get REAL scenes of surgery. They are long and graphic scenes of real surgery. Ugh!
A real turd.

All Of A Sudden (1996) internet 3.5/5
After all of the drek I'd been watching lately, this is like a gem.
The always enjoyable Simon Yam stars as a man who kidnaps a woman (Irene Wan) whose husband was sleeping with his wife before she killed herself. Or was she murdered?
Suspicions abound and information slowly surfaces leading up to a good ending.
At the time, the love scenes by Irene Wan were a big deal, as she was a successful TV star before this movie.
How this is a Cat II movie is beyond me, as it has plenty of nudity/sex, gruesome violence, and a scene with an infant that just dropped my jaw.
A great cast that also includes Dayo Wong playing a quirky detective who just can't keep snooping, and Alfred Cheung as the businessman husband.

Crazy Love aka The Fruit Is Ripe (1993, Hong Kong) internet 3/5
For a movie with no real story that looks like an excuse to have Loletta Lee run around naked half the movie, I'd still rate this higher than most of the movies I've watched over the last few days.
A lot of people remember Loletta from the Happy Ghost series when she was 18, but my earliest encounter with her was as the rather cute, but plain ghost from the early Amy Yip film Jailhouse Eros two years later. Where'd she get boobies from?
Granted, the highlight of the movie is her opening full-frontal nude shower scene - it never gets better than that as far as HER, but the movie has it's funny moments as she 'discovers' herself and love or whatever.
I gave it a bonus half point because it's one of the few Asian movies I've ever watched where she fucks up her attackers BEFORE they can rape her, in what is the only serious scene in the movie.
Fluff, but attractive fluff.

Exodus From Afar (1998, Hong Kong/Thailand) youtube 0.5/5
Holy smokes, I figured with Yvonne Yung Hung and Elvis Tsui in it, that it would at least look like a respectable movie, regardless of how stupid the story is. Boy was I wrong. This makes Fantasy Mission Force look like a masterpiece. Filmed on what looks like a budget of $100 this is the biggest waste of time ever. Tons of attractive nudity in it, but geez, you can find that anywhere.
Filmed in Thailand, it IS cool to see parts of Bangkok from 20 years ago (like Victory Monument), but it's not enough to keep me interested for the 83 minutes. It actually had a 6-minute sex scene with Elvis Tsui and two Thai girls set to some be-bop Jazz score that was more interesting than anything else in the movie. And I'm not sure it even had much to do with the story.
A complete mess.

33D Invader aka The Fruit is Ripe 33D! (2011, Hong Kong) Haiuken 3/5
I decided to have a look at how well the 'Chinese sex comedy' has improved since the 90's and chose this little masterpiece on the Haiuken site. From what I've read it's a sequel in NAME only to the Loletta Lee 'The Fruit is Ripe' movie.
In the year 2046, 99% of men have been rendered sterile by aliens called 'xuckers'. So the humans send a girl named 'future' into the past (2011) to have sex with men and bring back their essence. The aliens are chasing her though, and 'Once she is raped by us, humans on earth will be extinct'. Ok.
In 2011, we meet four hot roommate girls in college - Jeana, who wants to be a lawyer fighting for women's rights (LOL, you chose the wrong movie!), Cici the slutty one with the biggest breasts (in red), Jane the quick-witted one (in yellow), and Mia, the petite virgin (far right). Everyone on the beach is oogling them, including four guys who live in the apartment next to them.
Image

Of course, it's all just an excuse to have sex, but then again, so is life!
Akiho Yoshizawa (Jeana) is the 'star' here, she came from a porn background, you can see her stuff online if you google her name, but both first and only time film actresses' Chen Chih-Ying (Cici, the slutty one with big breasts, apparently a Tawaiin model) and the really cute Lee Ko-Chu (Mia the petite virgin, no other info) provide some superior full frontal naked sexcapades that are more than worthy.
NSFW - Lee Ko-Chu
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AzeK72c7c7Q/ ... %2B002.png

In fact, other than Jane (Monna Lam Yi-Chi), every female in this gets naked, including the female 'terminator', and 'Future' from the future.
It's not a masterpiece, of course, and there were times I was thinking, "Why can't they make porn like this?", but it's a lot of fun and better than 95% of Wong Jing's silly overused, and under exposed ideas.

Naked Ambition 2 (2014, Hong Kong/Japan) Haiuken 2/5
Well... I noticed that Akiho Yoshizawa had one other mainstream movie to her credit, and it was ABOUT the Japanese porn industry - a sort of take-up on it or whatever and...
To me, the one funny thing about this movie, and it did HK $16million, so obviously Chinese audiences thought it was funny, but to me the ONE thing about this movie that made me chuckle was that the director ends up being an unwilling participant in his own movies, and because the women have to practically MAKE him have sex, as he bumbles and snivels, that domination forced upon him, makes him an overnight sensation. LOL.
Other than that, I apparently can't tell the difference between Akiho Yoshizawa and Yui Tatsumi - one of them appeared in the first 'porn' scene.
I matched up the onscreen Japanese spelling of the names for Nozomi Aso and L-cup actress Anri Okita, and managed to figure out who Tsukasa Aoi was, but honestly, if you watch this movie for the sex, it's a disappointment. I mean... why be coy with the porn stars? 3D Intruder was much better.
And the story's isn't all that great either. I can't wait for the day SOMEONE makes an honest, dark comedy about either the U.S. or Japanese porn industry. There's a story there that's humorous, ugly, real, and insightful, but odds are we'll never see it.
Oh, and Wong Jing and Sandra Ng have cameos in it.
Harmless fun, but I was underwhelmed.

Spike Drink Gang (1995, Hong Kong) yoututbe 2.5/5
Some bad guys are spiking drinks at a local convenience store and then following the girls to mug and rob them, and in some cases sexually assault or rape them.
You'd think that'd be a serious topic for a decent crime thriller, but there are far too many attempts at comedy to do anything other than laugh or groan at it. Which isn't all that bad.
Yvonne Yung Hung is her usual victim, and Evlis Tsui is actually pretty hilarious as her crazy husband, furious of the embarrassment of her rape.
Watchable, but not great. Entertaining a lot of times, but stupid. I didn't dislike it, but I still am not exactly recommending it.

Shaolin Soccer (2001, Hong Kong) Haiuken 3.5/5
I love soccer (football), I love Kung Fu and I think Stephen Chow is funny, so this movie will always have a soft spot in my heart, despite its flaws and very dated CGI. Still, three days before the World Cup and I was in the mood to see it.
A Warner Brothers cartoon come to life, it's like the Bad News Bears on crack, but for all of the flaws that it has, they're overcome by a tried and true story: the underdog with a heart of gold vs the evil nemesis.
Hard to believe it's 17 years old.

That's an impressive review treak you've got going on there. Keep em coming!

Scorpion: Double Venom 2 (サソリ 殺す天使) (Japan, 1998) - 1.5/5
This is a continuation of the story that begun in the previous film, with Nami still played by Chiharu Komatsu. Both films were released theatrically on the same day. It's a marginally better film than the first, for reasons I cannot recall anymore two weeks after the viewing (which probably says something about the movie). It might have had something to do with the general ridiculousness of the picture, especially the ending which is so dumb it's almost genius.

Daredevil Drivers (マッハ'78) (Japan, 1978) [Hulu] - 2.5/5
A minor carsploitation classic with nonexistent artistic achievements partly out-weighted by some of the most insane car stunts ever committed to film. The storyline is about Japanese and American stuntmen competing each other in a tournament in USA where they perform death defying car and crash stunts. What's interesting is that while the story is fictional, the film essentially plays out as a documentary since the stunts are real, often shot in a single take, even showing the real medical personnel pulling the poor driver out of the wreck. Nearly all cast members are stuntmen and it's difficult to believe many of the outcomes could've been scripted. Some of the stunts are impossible to witness without going all "holy shit!" Cinematically the film is amateurish with a ridiculously thin romantic side story (with "Hollywood Star" Linda Stayer who appeared in a total of two films!) and dull sequences documenting a real car museum and race event. Nevertheless, with achievements like "word record car jump" (158 metres) and "359 demolished vehicles" the film found relatively wide international distribution in the early 80, mainly on video, and still manages to astonish in places.

Sasori in U.S.A. (Scorpion's Revenge) (Japan, 1997) - 2/5
Another restart film, this time a theatrical release although I suspect this was produced for the video market and only given minimal theatrical run. In any case, it's a bit better than you'd expect, a passable b-film with some nudity, one explosion (yes, this actually has production values, minor they may be), a bit of action, and shot in USA. There are quite a few American actors as well, giving typical b-film performances that some people might describe as "bad". Nami (uncharismatic but passable TV star Yoko Saito, daring to show her boobs here) is this time a woman living in the US, falsely accused of murdering her husband and sent behind the bars. If you don't think of it as a Female Prisoner Scorpion film but rather a normal WiP flick it's quite watchable, and would be up another half star if the ending wasn't such a letdown with some very underwhelming action and car chase. The director is Daisuke Goto, better known for some watchable pink films (A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn, Blind Love).

I'm almost positive I never saw this, despite the Asian Cinema magazine's I was reading at the time promoting the hell out of it. Always thought the cover looked good.

Forgot to mention another of the few good things about this movie is the sexy 錢軍 Chin Gwan from Sex and the Emperor - she was the one with the hot body that the Emperor's eunuch was seeing in secret. She has a sex scene (drugged sex scene, i.e. rape), with a quick glimpse of full frontal. For those who are, ya know, interested in those things.)

Undercover Girls (1999, Hong Kong) internet 1/5
There's a scene in this movie where the two bumbling good guys, get into the hotel where Yvonne Yung Hung's character is being held captive by two triad members, key into the room posing as 'cleaning the room', throw the blankets over their them (they're laying on the bed), and proceed to beat on them until they're unable to get up and follow. Yung Hung even throws in a few punches of her own and they look about as week as the two bumbling heroes.
It's that stupid of a movie.
Throw in three overly long love scenes that have absolutely nothing to do with the story and you have another bland, Yvonne Yung Hung Cat III movie. She's fully dressed throughout.
She's the daughter of a rich businessman who gets in trouble with the triads, and the bumbling idiots have to save her. Lots of scenes of them being goofy. Yawn.
