Dead Beat Film Society

We are the Dead Beat Film Society. Every meeting someone picks an important film. We all watch the film then meet back up to discuss it. Along with a discussion of why the film is important, we analyze the film making, acting, directing, and discuss our personal thoughts and opinions.

Maybe the 36th chamber was the friends we made along the way!
Join the Dead Beat Film Society as we discuss the Master Killer, the history of Hong Kong kung fu films, the rise and fall of the Shaw Brothers, Gordon Liu, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Wu-Tang Clan, genre films and why we love them, Asian masculinity on screen, comedy sequels, our favorite chambers, fighting oppressive governments, the true story behind the film, the real Shaolin Temple, no Rotten Tomatoes score(!), the martial arts lineage of this film, the famously bad dubbing, and how these movies struck a chord with black America in the 70's and 80's.
So start training now for an in depth The 36th Chamber of Shaolin film analysis!
