LONDON - VOODOO VILLAGE

June 2, 2008, 11:36am

This week the nerds at Voodoo Village focus on film. They spotlight Al Leong, star of 74% of all action flicks from the 1980s. They dig out clips from their favourite offensive movies, their favourite misogynistic movies, and their favourite movie special FX. To wrap it off, they gather all the best Dario Argento films. Your eyes can thank us later.

AL LEONG WILL KICK YOUR BUTT
What do Die Hard, They Live, Lethal Weapon, Big Trouble in Little China, Black Rain, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, The Golden Child and Action Jackson all have in common? They're all great films because of one man - and that man is Al Leong. Although you may not recognise the name, you'd recognize his face straight away. Al was one of the greatest actors of his generation, but was always typecast as the token yellow bad guy with an Uzi.

SPECIAL FX
