Xan’s Experience at the Kung Fu & Titties Premire in Brooklyn, New York

So Xan had an adventure on Feb 13th 2013. After a long day at work, he took a drive down to a small film theater in the middle of  a scary part of Brooklyn in order to see if one Joseph "Odie" McConnell would make due on his promise, to show titties on the big Screen. Yes, after years of Spiraken hyping it and taking about it, it had finally happened. Kung Fu and Titties had its film debut


At this theater, where they had a fully stocked bar (a little over priced but still fully stocked), Xan joined several cast members and fans in a small theater room to  finally to see the film that we have talked about for months on end.

The premise is simple,Richard Titties ( Sean Molnar) an out-of-shape martial arts wannabe  is shot into an alternate dimension after his girlfriend Cynthia (Seregon O'Dassey) is kidnapped  by Zeefros ( John Archer Lungren), Titty obsessed Ruler of a parallel dimesnion . Richard joins up with his sister Raine Brown, a Gorilla ( Mike Marino) and a gaggle of other strange characters, in order to save his girlfriend. He must search inside, overcome his futile martial arts skills, and find the kung fu fighter within if he is to save himself and all those that dwell in the alternate world

Kung Fu & Titties  is a film that has a lot of heart, inventive scenary, and a plot twist that is completely unexpected. From large scale battles between Croations and invisible armies to thought provoking discussions with a wise Native American (played by Bronson Pinchot), this film is imaginative and creative in a way that only Odie can bring to the screen. The big drive of this film is the massive amount of bare breasts on display. There are tons of tits and sexy poses throughout this film and if that is why you want to watch this film, then you will not be disappointed.

All of the actors give it their all in this film but the most memorable  is John Archer Lungren as the Evil Zeefros. One part fatherly figure  and one part Insane Overlord, this titty obsessed villain is one that you won't forget.

Overall it is a picasso-esque jumble of line and color that at first glance seem simplistic but on further thought has a deeper esthetic that is captivating and whimsical.
