Jaa vs. Bird Witch and Dolph vs. Running : Ong Bak 3 and Skin Trade
Bloody Good Film Podcast
Father time remains undefeated this week, claiming both Dolph Lundgren's knees and Josh and Jesse's time reviewing one of these awful movies. The Bloody Good Film Podcast is Ong back at it again finishing up the third and final installment of the Ong Bak trilogy. We decided to pair our final film in this martial arts franchise with another Tony Jaa action film, where he stars along side some of the biggest names in action, Skin Trade. Join us as we travel back to Thailand to try to figure out a convoluted plot, and watch our first ever meditation montage. We discuss the rise of the Crow/Bird Witch/Bad Guy and count the number of times you can curse someone after you've already been beheaded. Watch as Tony Jaa goes from flying knees to dancing fingers in an effort to save his girlfriend and fix his karma, or at least we think that's it. Oh, we see that statue from the first movie again too...Then stick with us as we discuss how a movie that has Tony Jaa, Michael Jai White, Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, and Robocop can somehow still suck...Most importantly we give you the answer to our weekly question...Are Ong Bak 3 and Skin Trade bloody good films?We encourage everyone to watch along while you listen and make sure to comment and let us know what you think.

In our longest episode yet, we cover both the original Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior, and it's sequel Ong Bak 2: The Beginning. We desperately try to follow along with the plots, while simultaneously trying to figure out how many double elbows to the head it takes for us not to care about them anymore.Join as we take numerous detours about proper pronunciation of names, movies we've already talked about, and the difference between alligators and crocodiles. We take you through every free run, tuk tu chase, elephant punch, double knee, and fire kick that these films have to offer. Also, please help us with our karma or apparently we can't watch the third film?Most importantly we give you the answer to our weekly question...Are Ong Bak 1 and 2 bloody good films?We encourage everyone to watch along while you listen and make sure to comment and let us know what you think.
