Free kung fu movies!

UPDATE: It’s been a while since this podcast has been updated. You can find similar (and several of the same) films on FilmOn’s Martial Arts channel. Better yet, why not do yourself a favour and watch something of quality? Check out the Korean Film Archive’s YouTube channel, with 70 (and growing) movies from the 1940s right up to the 90s, and all English subtitled. Read a little more about it here

Fancy watching some free kung fu movies? Fancy getting them in an iPod or iPhone friendly format? Not too picky about the quality – whether that happens picture, dubbing or even the actual movie itself?

Well, if you’re using iTunes, just follow the link below to the Cult of Kung Fu podcasts, a special branch of the Cult of UHF who release a lot of ‘public domain’ b-movies. (Still not really sure how these films become public domain in the first place, but there you go…) There you’ll find a growing selection of American dubbed Hong Kong movies, including Shaolin Invincibles and Shadow Ninja. Many of these have been available in some format or another before on low cost video or DVDs (though often not cheap enough considering the dire quailty!)

Entertaining if not brilliant, they coud be just what your daily commute needs…

    You can download via iTunes, or Google ‘Cult of UHF’ to find their homepage, where you can download or watch the films directly.

    You can play back via iTunes, or any decent software media player, such as VLC – available for all platforms.
