Bruce Lee is primarily known as a great martial artist, but we were surprised at just how socially conscious he was- he attempted, and in many cases succeeded, at brining cultures together with Kung Fu. A great philosopher in his own right, Bruce Lee was very artistic by nature and loved to write poetry and direct films. Check out the links below and you’ll get a sense why Bruce Lee is a favorite in the Diabolical Penthouse. The man was truly legendary.
Bloodsport – The Epic 360 Split Spinning Hook Heel Foot Kick
Aside from some of Bruce Lee’s great kicks, there might not be a more iconic kick than the fatal blow Jean-Claude Van Damme delivers in Bloodsport. The name of this kick is about 3 times as long as the actual kick itself, but we love it every time we view it. You just can’t help but be impressed at the epic faces JCVD is able to conjure up… truly majestic and downright amazing. Check the links below to view the kick in all of it’s glory.
Enter the Dragon
Released in 1973, Enter the Dragon is widely considered the best Martial Arts movie of all time. We certainly don’t disagree, in fact, for our money, it ranks up there as one of the best action movies of all time as well. This is the film that made Bruce Lee a star, it’s just unfortunate that he didn’t live to see the adulation and respect he earned from the role. If there’s only one martial arts movie you ever take in, this has got to be it. Marvel at the quickness of Bruce Lee’s kicks and movements… truly remarkable. Check the links below for the epic kick we discussed in this session as well as other great moments from the film.
This week’s diabolical shoutout goes to Esteban Melendez and his work with the crew of the Star Trek: Axanar fan film. Not only is this film getting huge buzz in the Star Trek world, but it has killed it’s current kickstarter funding as well. We are beyond excited to see the finished product and it’s a sure bet you haven’t heard the last of this film in in the Diabolical Penthouse. Check out all the info as well as the great prelude recently released at StarTrekAxanar.com
