I might as well call this Martial Arts Spring, as the good news is that Samurai Jack has been renewed for a fifth season beginning in March. Until then all of the episodes of the previous seasons are being shown back to back on Adult Swim.
Also, we have a live action version of Blade of the Immortal coming in April. I read this Manga a few years ago, and I’m always up for some ridiculously over the top Samurai action movies:
Also being released this year are:
Brotherhood of the Blades II
Kill Zone II
and the Kingsman sequel, which impressed me as a very dark and ugly movie. I didn’t enjoy watching it at all, and Samuel L Jackson just got on my nerves, which is something that he’s increasingly done in the last couple of years..
Call of Heroes by Benny Chan, which stars Sammo Hung and my future husband, Andy Lau.
And if you havent seen them yet check out
Rise of the Legend (2016) and The Final Master from 2015.
