Bruce Lee: The Legacy Collection

Never forget.


Rod Lott

It seems like it was just three months ago that Shout! Factory reissued the four core Bruce Lee flicks that aren't Enter the Dragon … because it was!

The Big Bus

Get on the 'Bus,' Gus


Rod Lott
Beating Airplane! to the punch — but not to pop-culture relevance — by four years was the 1976 disaster spoof, The Big Bus. Only two of the four Airport adventures had taken off at the time and were quite popular, so it's possible audiences at the time didn't have the sense of humor about it as they would today.

The Big Gundown

A spaghetti feast


Rod Lott
Italian-made yet America-set, The Big Gundown is the second spaghetti Western in a row I've seen in which a man is silenced by having a soapy shaving brush shoved into his mouth. For the record, the first was the recently re-released My Name Is Nobody, a 1973 film as fine as this 1966 one.
