Film Review: Kung Fury

Kung Fury, is a 31-minute, crowd funded 1980's inspired action comedy movie. The film was produced by Swedish studio ,Laser Unicorns. The studio launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the film and  it was able to raise $630,019 from what was originally a goal of just $200,000.

Kung Fury takes place in 1985 Miami but from the very first opening scene, which involves a cop car being flipped over by a skateboard, you can tell that you are going to be in for some physics-defying action and randomness. The main villain of the movie is none other than Adolf Hitler or "Kung F├╝hrer" in the movie because he has mastered the art of Kung Fu and only the chosen one Kung Fury can travel back in time and take him down.

The sound effects and music for the movie are of course something straight out of the 1980's. It sounds like everything was produced from a Yamaha keyboard . The 1980's TV icon, David Hasselhoff, wrote the lead track "True Survivor" and it even has its own music video. The special effects in the movie are actually the biggest break from the 1980's theme as the computer generated special effects and animation goes far beyond the technology they had in the 1980's, but this is not a bad thing.

The acting in the movie was great based on the how low the budget is. Written, directed and starring David Sandberg as the main character "Kung Fury" brings cheesy catch phrases and ultra violent action together into one great short film. The ending leaves open the possibility of a sequel. Overall Kung Fury is a fun movie to watch and might give you a case of nostalgia. The film is available on Netflix but you can also see the film via youtube using the player below.

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
