    ★★★

    This had me giddy over Bruce Lee in a way that The Big Boss did not.  The story is better (but still not very good), the fight scenes are way better, and Bruce Lee is just on another level here.  He kicks all sorts of ass and you don’t doubt for a second that he couldn’t take on twenty dudes at once.  In fact, it’s hard to imagine anyone even giving him a challenge - and they really don’t.  I…

    I have a pretty distinct memory of watching Candyman for the first time when I was in 7th grade, which is a bit odd…
