16 Comments

The 23rd Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) will commemorate Bruce Lee, the king of Asian action movies, with a showing of selected movies as part of the festival's Winds of Asia Middle-East section.

This special tribute entitled "The 70th Anniversary: Bruce Lee to the Future," will screen Bruce Lee’s most successful film "Enter the Dragon," and his last film, "Game of Death" (the rare version that was distributed in Japan in 1978), as well as exciting Asian films that pay homage to Bruce Lee, who continues to inspire filmmakers around the world more than 30 years after his death.

The 23rd TIFF will be held from Oct 23-31 at Roppongi Hills and other venues in Tokyo.

I'm a bit confused on what the actual anniversary that is being celebrated. I assume it would have been his 70th birthday if he were still alive today. Whatever the case Bruce "ahooooyaaa" Lee is still the man!

First Elvis, now Bruce Lee... What's up with old school entertainment in the news? I need my daily dosage of Kumi Koda & Aki Hoshino talking about their latest sell-out endorsements, hinting at titilating romance, and flashing the obligatory cleavage!

Wish I could be there and see him on the big screen again. The best. Jackie is fun, but Bruce, different league.

How much do you want to bet that Fist of Fury is not one of the movies selected? Still, good on TIFF for honoring someone who truly deserves it.

"Boards don't hit back"...

Is my favorite Bruce Lee phrase. It was so cool the way he said it (Enter the Dragon)...

I always liked: "It's like a finger pointing to them moon. Don't concentrate on the finger, or you'll miss all that heavenly glory."

Interesting fact you may not know: Bruce Lee was actually 1/4 caucasian. His mother was half...(British colony and stuff).
