    Black History Month Special: Black Panther, Django Unchained, The Last Dragon

    Black History Month Special: Black Panther, Django Unchained, The Last Dragon

    Happy Black History Month!

    This week, we’re celebrating by breaking down some of our favorite action films that feature Black heroes and action filmmakers! We’re talking Black Panther, Django Unchained, and The Last Dragon!

    Black Panther, Marvel’s action blockbuster featuring the late Chadwick Boseman, has become a cultural icon. We breakdown the incredible casino fight scene, analyze Black Panther's fighting style, air some visual effects grievances, and gush about Michael B Jordan’s performance.

    Django Unchained, Tarantino’s Western action film, boasts a star studded cast and some fantastic fights. We breakdown the Candyland shootout, talk about how violence is treated in the film, and note which gunshots that made us laugh.

    The Last Dragon is an 80’s action film continuing the legacy of Bruce Lee’s filmography. This cult classic is a pioneer of the Black Kung Fu film genre and is chock full of over-the-top characters, set-dressings, and of course, action! We talk about the non-actor star, the quotable lines, and the comedic nature of its action!

    Join us as we celebrate Black History Month!

    Vlad Rimburg Pt 3: Jane Wick & Shaky Cam Secrets

    Reintroducing: Vlad Rimburg, the bad boy from Belarus. Vlad is an action / 2nd unit director, fight coordinator, fight choreographer, editor, and performer. Notable works include Lucifer, Sultan, and Unlucky Stars. You can find much of his work, from professional pre-viz to action short passion projects, on his YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/vjvlad?pbjreload=102.

    In this episode, we go in-depth about Vlad’s work with indie action shorts, discussing how he riffed on John Wick’s fighting style for his female John Wick short “Ballerina” as well as recounting the gnarliest groin grabs and nut shots he’s ever choreographed.

    Also, Vlad reveals the secret to perfect shaky cam, details why The Protector’s one-take fight was ineffective, and reveals which action fight scene made him cry. To top it all off, Vlad gives up-and-coming action filmmakers some good old financial and life advice.

    Garrett Warren Pt 2: Choreographing Logan, Avatar, & Alita: Battle Angel

    Introducing: Garrett Warren. Garrett is the self proclaimed “best one-eyed, balding stunt coordinator / 2nd unit director in all of Hollywood.” His filmography includes Logan, Avatar, and Alita: Battle Angel. He’s also worked with talent such as Hugh Jackman, Mickey Rourke, James Cameron, and Stephen Spielberg, to name a few. Most recently, Garrett has worked on the upcoming two sequels to Avatar.

    We sit down with Garrett to break down Alita: Battle Angel’s incredible bar fight scene and discuss what martial arts influenced Alita’s zero-gravity fighting style. We also talk large-scale battles when reviewing Avatar’s breathtaking final sequence. And, when analyzing Logan’s farmhouse fight, we come upon a script excerpt that Garrett may or may not have printed on his crew’s t-shirts.
