What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Almost Totally Excellent

Kung Fury Is the Writhing Core at the Heart of All ’80s Action Films


Look, I’m not going to try to explain or excuse the ’80s other than to say that they produced me, so let that stand in their favor. This was a Kickstarter, FYI.

    I’m a proud backer of “Kung Fury”. I’m sorry he didn’t get his $1 million to convert it to a feature film, but I hope he finds financing to do so. I can’t wait for the final product.

    In a similar vein, you should check out “Manborg”. http://youtu.be/mBHau4HeTZY

    The T-Rex was a 90′s T-Rex, though. In the 80′s, before Jurassic Park, pop culture still thought they stood upright and dragged their tails on the ground.

    11 year old me just had an o****m.
    PS – The 80′s produced me, too.

    This…this is…AWESOME!
    That first scene, and then “Is that Johnny Depp!? NO? Who cares?!” and then the hacking and then – everything!!!
    And finally: SWEDISH!??

    Dammit – I hope they find more funding!

    That was so 80′s I started wearing dress shoes without socks.

    wait…how does producing you qualify as something in their favor? :p

    I see no reason that they cannot import future paleontology into their time-traveling movie. As much as I can hate the phrase, timey wimey.
