Megashare Shaolin Invincible Sticks (1981)
he white-haired Liu Ta Yeh (Chang Yi) is an evil master of the Zu Wu stick, who seeks to eradicate fellow masters of stick fighting so no one will be able to stand against him. Liu Ta Yeh invades the House of Chan, where the late Lord Chan established a successful school for stick fighters. Lord Chanís brothers oversee the day-to-day activities of the school and guard Lord Chanís own sacred fighting staff, which is to be passed down to his son, Ku Yung Chan (Wang Dao) when the young man is deemed worthy. The problem is Ku Yung Chan is a cocky and overconfident fighter, with a chip on his shoulder. When Liu Ta Yehís henchmen invade the House of Chan, Ku Yung Chanís uncles put him through a test of combat, which he quickly fails. His uncles banish him from the clan, but in reality they are saving their nephew from Liu Ta Yeh, who was Lord Chanís chief rival. Ku Yung Chan takes to the streets where he runs into warrior-monk Tai Li Leh (Kam Kong). After Ku Yung Chan defeats Tai Li Leh, the monk begs Ku Yung Chan to train him. Ku Yung Chan agrees, and accompanies his new friend to his current master, a skinny old man with a drinking problem.

Megashare Bi xie jian (1981)
a convoluted tale of the martial world adapted by screenwriter Ni Kuang from a novel by Louis Cha (Jin Yong) that has been adapted for film and TV both before and since. There was a film version called SWIFT SWORD (1980) done a year earlier, also at Shaw Bros.; a TV series done in 1985; and a wire-fu version starring Yuen Biao made in 1993. It's evident from this film that a lot of plot has been condensed and packed into 104 minutes. Things move fast and there's an awful lot of detail to take in, much of it complicated by frequent flashbacks. It has less action and more talk than usual. Until the big fight finale, most of the fights tend to be short bouts, either friendly ones or tests of opponents' skills.

Megashare Raggedy Man (1981)
It's 1944 in the small town of Gregory, Texas. Divorcée Nita Longley has been brought into the town by the telephone company to work as its switchboard operator, a job which requires her to be at the switchboard day and night. She was originally told by her boss Mr. Rigby that this job would only be a stepping-stone to a more lucrative job with regular working hours, which Mr. Rigby seems to be reneging on since he has now told her that her position is frozen due to the war. As such, Nita feels trapped by this situation. Nita lives in the telephone switchboard office building with her two sons, adolescent Harry and infant Henry. Because of her marital status, many of the townsfolk, especially the men, view Nita either with contempt or as a loose woman. One evening, Teddy Roebuck, a sailor on a four day furlough who is hitchhiking back to his home in Ardmore, Oklahoma, stops by to make a telephone call. When he learns that the reason for his trip home no longer exists, Teddy decides to stay in Gregory instead. Teddy strikes up a friendship with Nita and her two boys, which blossoms into love. The appearance of this stranger does not sit well with locals Calvin and Arnold, who had plans of having their way with loose Nita, who earlier rebuked their advances. The town's unidentified disfigured man, who Nita fears, may ultimately provide her with the ability to move on with her life.
