Down in the Dojo, Episode 01: A Review of "Come Drink With Me"

Salutations, and welcome to the official home of Down in the Dojo!

When at the lowest point in my life, grasping for direction, I encountered a Craigslist ad that changed everything:

"Teacher seeks pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person."

Realizing that sounded way too hard, I opted for the next one:

"Sifu seeks disciple. Must have an earnest desire to learn kung fu through film. Apply by email."

Now that sounded perfect! Thus did Sifu, my new kung fu master, dub me Boushi-san and charge me with reviewing martial arts movies. Once I've accumulated enough reviews under my belt, I'm sure the ancient arts of kicking butt and taking names with flying kicks will leap into my mind and body like a raging dragon. So he assures me. Sifu wouldn't lie, right?

So with that introduction out of the way, I present the first episode of Down in the Dojo, where I don my new martial arts robe and  examine the King Hu epic "Come Drink With Me" (1966).

For now, I'll be using Veoh as my distribution channel primarily. I'll upload to Youtube when certain matters of "fair use" are ironed out. I'll also be apply to Blip in hopes of furthering this project and making Sifu proud! So like, share, and discuss! If the movie appeals to you, track it down and tell me what you thought in the comments.
