#14 - “The Last Dragon” (1985) with Ron West

#14 - “The Last Dragon” (1985) with Ron West

As the brainchild of an up-and-coming screenwriter, an established movie director, and the mastermind behind Motown Records, Barry Gordy, a low-budget niche film mixed martial arts, heavily synthesized pop songs, supernatural adventure, Bruce Lee, and over-the-top comedy that has surprised and entertained audiences for decades after its initial box office release. The chart-topping soundtrack was just as much a part of the film as the main characters, but far from being a flimsy visual vehicle to hang some songs on, it found a way to use stylish silliness and insightful martial arts concepts to become a story of hope and purpose. If you can’t answer with confidence, “Who’s the Master?”, then prepare to “Kiss the Converse” as Ron West and I discuss “Barry Gordy’s The Last Dragon” from 1985.

Just like "The Last Dragon" has no deleted scenes, we have no additional trivia deleted from this full episode.
