The 4DK Monthly Movie Shout Down: Can you prove it didn't happen?

Years from now, people will talk about the participants in the first 4DK Monthly Movie Shout Down as if they were gods, the mythical creators of a mysterious and hallowed tradition. But let the record reflect that we were just humans -- humans who probably should have had something better to do than wile away our time on the internet making snarky comments about an obscure Taiwanese fantasy martial arts film. That record of course being this Storified transcript of the proceedings.

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank those who contributed the most to last night's hilarity: Carol of the Cultural Gutter, whose lightning fast screen capping reflexes provided the many illustrations that accompany the above linked transcript, Andrew Nahem of the Internet, who continues to maintain his aura of refinement in the face of the web's crassest indignities, and Miranda of the fine Filmi-Contrast blog, who not only provided pithy commentary but also turned out to be our lone contest winner of the night.

And now with our inaugural journey behind us, all there is to do is look forward to the next 4DK Monthly Movie Shout Down, which will take place on Tuesday, April 8th. A preview of our feature:

Thanks for inviting me to participate, Todd. Fury of the Silver Fox was a film of wonders indeed and has inspired me to search ravines and crevasses near my home to see if I can find any angry old hermits to teach me their idiosyncratic kung fu.

You'll do great, as long as you've got a high tolerance for having caustic substances rubbed in your eyes and drinking toxic, mushroom based concoctions. That is what kung fu is all about, after all.
