author topic: Favorite David Carradine movies?

I loved his performance in Kill Bill (his favorite role to date), what are some other David Carradine movies you like? Death Race 2000 is a fun movie, as is Q: The Winged Serpent, Walter Hill's The Long Riders is a pretty good western you don't hear about much (why the hell does it have an average rating of 4? I gave it an 8 to balance things out a little), Carradine has a great knife fight scene with James Remar in that film (brother Keith Carradine, who played Wild Bill Hickock on Deadwood made what I think was his first of several collaborations with Walter Hill on The Long Riders).

There are plenty of his movies that I haven't seen, I wanted to see the rather weird-sounding Circle of Iron (based on a story by James Coburn and Bruce Lee!) before seeing Kill Bill V2, but I couldn't find a copy anwhere. Looking at Carradine's IMDB entry, there's also lots of stuff that sounds fairly awful, hopefully Kill Bill will end up giving him a good career boost (I wouldn't mind seeing the careers of Sonny Chiba or Gordon Liu getting a shot in the arm either).

Other than the avidly watched Kung Fu TV series, the most memorable David Carridine film to date, at least for me, is Bound for Glory. It's also the best shot thanks to Haskell Wexler.

Don't you think that this subject could just as easily fit into the Kill Bill Vol. 2 thread?

You could open it up to the entire Carradine family. What's your favorite John Carradine movie? Keith Carradine? Robert Carradine?

Does anybody have a favorite Robert Carradine movie?

John Carradine was good in The Grapes of Wrath.

Correction, John Carradine was bloody marvelous in The Grapes of Wrath.

Btw, Chiba's career is very much alive and well.

Revenge of the Nerds, of course. What else?

Oh, Revenge of the Nerds, natch.

I was having trouble thinking of a favorite Keith Carradine movie, and then I remembered The Duellists.

Yeah, a check of Chiba's IMDB entry proves you right (Gordon Liu also seems to be doing ok), I just haven't really seen Sonny Chiba in too many recent movies (There was the fairly recent Hong Kong movie The Stormriders), of course, several probably haven't been released in the US. I haven't seen Battle Royale II yet, Chiba has some kind of role in that film, but it's probably a pretty small one.

>Does anybody have a favorite Robert Carradine movie?

If I had to pick, it would probably be Samuel Fuller's The Big Red One. I think Robert Carradine was also in Samuel Fuller's final film, Street of No Return. I haven't seen it, but it's on my queue.

No, wait, it was Keith (When are we going to get an edit function on these boards?)

Not to mention *our* interview with him, published last week.

Btw, I had forgotten Robert was in The Big Red One -- certainly a better film than Revenge of the Nerds, though I like them both!

Keith was in Southern Comfort, which I have on my GC request list right now.

Surprisingly, no one has yet mentioned that Keith Carradine acted and sang in Robert Altman's Nashville.

Not a movie but David Carradine did play a martial arts teacher in an episode of Lizzie McGuire, the series in which Robert Carradine plays the father.

Yeah, but I got the déjà vu blues again. It's weird when that happens. My mouse trigger finger must be a little itchy today...

All three DVDs in the set are at the top of my queue and I have nothing checked out now so it looks as if I'm gonna start with discs 2 and 3.

Peccato!

Too bad that everyone can't satiate their David Carradine thirst by renting Lone Wolf McQuade from Greencine...
