A New Best Of The Best Movie?! - ManlyMovie

A New Best Of The Best Movie?!


Who remembers The Best of the Best series?  It’s been a while since we’ve seen a movie from that franchise.

Actor, martial artist and producer Phillip Rhee says plans are afoot to bring back the rejig movie franchise. “We’re going to reboot the whole franchise with a new cast. I have things … I’m going to bring in elements that nobody has ever seen before. I will produce the picture.”

Rhee starred in four of the previous movies.  He recently shot his first movie in 17 years (Underdog Kids).  The Best of the Best reboot will go the direct to video/video on demand route.

No word yet on when things get started.  I wonder if it’ll be one of those movies where Michael Jai White shows up?

    that’s a tough one. the original was good for the time it came out, by todays standards – best of the best hasn’t aged as well. It’s a very good but flawed movie, but the chemistry between phillip rhee and eric roberts carried the film.

    but sadly – every sequel that followed got worse and worse..

    So, doing a reboot and adding more depth and realism to the film will be cool. hey night rider keep us updated.

    do you think u can get an interview with Phillip Rhree? maybe get him to answer some questions. You got scott adkins and joey ansah, why not phillip rhee?

    if possible try to get him to talk to. i would think that Manly could be a great way to promote things.

      Interviews are very hit and miss. Some people are harder to reach than others. E.g. two (supposedly) upcoming interviews should be Trish Stratus and Steven E. deSouza, who is scheduled to field answers for us in video format. But sometimes informal scheduled interviews like that are just not… followed through on.

      Another guy that’s hard to reach is Jean Claude Van Damme, basically because he has a rabid fanboy handle such things and basically you’re at the mercy of whether or not that guy likes you, and he hates anyone who hasn’t got a brick shrine for Van Damme built in their garden.

      Another problem is that if you review movies honestly, you build a readership but at the same time you close doors. I know for a fact certain people are ignoring us simply because we didn’t give their (crap, very crap) movies highly embellished scores.

      Same thing from studios. Expect less review copies if you call it down the middle.

        yeah. its understandable. very understandable. well. you guys are honest. Sometimes you guys are harsh and critical, but you are honest, which i think its important. but yeah. i hear you. maybe you should network with other websites? kung-fu kingdom is a good example. but, i think some people out there appreciate honesty. i would think that some of the retired legends would love to chat. Michael Jai white is filming “never back down 3” – and it looks like a legit stv action flick.
