Celestial Pictures and GammaRay today proudly announced to stream a Shaw Brothers movie marathon on Twitch (twitch.tv/gammaray_tv) from February 4 to February 8, 2019 in celebration of Chinese New Year. The marathon will include 44 full-length features from Celestial Pictures' Shaw Brothers extensive library of kung fu titles, including iconic films such as King Boxer, Crippled Avengers, and Five Deadly Venoms. This viewing event will be streamed globally and exclusively on Twitch, the leading service and community for multiplayer entertainment, and marks the first time Twitch has featured kung fu films.

44 Titles will be featured during the Twitch livestream including the following kung fu classics:

  • King Boxer (1972): A student (Lieh Lo) of kung fu meets resistance on his way to a major Chinese tournament.
  • Crippled Avengers (1978): After the death of his wife, warlord Dao Tian-du (Kuan Tai Chen) turns evil and holds a town in thrall to his reign of fear with the help of his sadistic son. Four of the villain's victims -- a blind man, an amputee, a deaf-mute, and an insane fighter -- seek the help of a wise kung fu master as they train to eliminate the tyrant for good.
  • Five Deadly Venoms (1978): A dying master sends his last student to check up on five former pupils, who each know a special style of kung fu.

Let it never be said that ripping off one's testicles isn't kung fu.

Talk about balls of steel.
Synchronous weak point movement must be some kung fu god level skill.

I keep dipping in and out of this marathon and there's some great choreography on show even in the cheesiest of the comedy films.
It's worked on me as i'll probably look for some of the blurays or dvds to buy at some point too.

I'm going out on a limb here but I'm simply assuming the voice actors for the english dub are Chinese and the reason the voices sound like 30s gangsters is due to their accent.
Just my assumption :X
