Episode 204 - Blind Fury

On this week's episode, the gang has nothing but love for 1989's incredible White Guy Karate masterpiece, Blind Fury! Why do all movies with blind characters have other characters "test" them to see if they're actually blind? How lame is this terrible wimp of a villain, MacCready? And how is Chris not impressed by a blind guy chopping a flying squash in half? PLUS: How many Academy Award-winning films have ripped this movie off? Answer: At least two.

Blind Fury stars Rutger Hauer, Terry O'Quinn, Brandon Call, Noble Willingham, Randall 'Tex' Cobb, Nick Cassavetes Meg Foser, and Shô Kosugi; directed by Phillip Noyce.

This was frustrating to listen to just because all the things you guys thought were cool ... well, this was an homage to "Zatoichi", which is like a huge series of movies about a blind samurai. Do your research, god damnit.

Chris, we mention that at the start of the episode.

Chris Preciado said...

Well, then I feel like a big dummy. I heard it near the end, but have you guys seen any Zatoichi? I'm surprised you didn't mention it more, or talk about your buddy BEAT Takeshi in the remake!

Chris,

I've seen a couple scattered throughout the series, but yeah, haven't caught them all. I was actually making my summer screening list (now that most TV I watch is over/ended forever) and thanks in part to this episode, I added the entire series to my watch this. Are you a big fan? I've also seen the Beat remake!

I realize now my comment sounds really dickish. I meant the "god damnit" to be in a Brimley voice.
Honestly I don't think the *whole* series is worth watching, but it was pretty cool that he met Yojimbo! That's like Alien vs. Predator or something.

I think the preferred Brimlification of goddammit people use is "gawdamoot!"

Also, I thought the same thing when I noticed he met Yojimbo last night.

Man, we will never escape the cultural milestone that was AVP...

This film has some excellent choreographed fights.

I knew it had to be this movie or Surviving the Game. I actually liked this movie when I was younger for whatever reason. I was a little disappointed it wasn't Surviving the Game, though. Please do that one sometime.

Tector and Lyle Gorch were played by Ben Johnson and Warren Oates in The Wild Bunch. The original characters were super filthy, depraved and homicidal, but on the other hand, they didn't shoot each other to death.

I knew it was going to be Blind Fury. Thank God it was. I haven't seen this in years, but my favourite line was always when the shit-eating kid says before they get on the bus "I get the window seat, you don't need it you're blind" and Rutger Hauer just says "you got me there you little shit". Thanks to you lot I'm forced FORCED I say to rewatch Blind Fury.

Haven't seen the movie yet (but listened to your ep). Do you prefer the Rutger Hauer who has "seen things you people wouldn't believe" or do you prefer blind Rutger Hauer?
