                              Good thing RZA wasn't into spaghetti westerns. His band and bandmate names, samples and themes would've been a whole different ballpark. But "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" would have made for some great sampling. I bet something like that is already out there...

                                I would expect that most HK people in their 50's or 60's knows only about 50% or 60% of the film's mentioned. Other generations would know even less.

                                                              I wonder if the whole Wu tang clan was into kung fu flicks before RZA or were they influenced by RZA when they linked up.

I tried to keep it going for a few months after I had graduated but it just wasn't the same... So many good flicks, so many.. about half the time I did it by myself, the other half of the time I had a few friends join for the event.. I think I liked it better by myself, I could get high and really get into the movies... Lol, I never rented any because of what the title said so I remember almost zero of the names, I rented off the cover of the vhs box.. if it looked good and called me I grabbed it.. sometimes the secretary of the school who was pretty cool would call to see if I was "sick".. but she would just say, hi, you watching Kung Fu and eating pizza again?.. I'd say yup, and she'd say, ok I'll mark it down as a sick day..
