Enter the dragon, Bloodsport, ong bak, way of the dragon, house of the flying daggers and Kickboxer... Always Kickboxer!
I enjoyed watching martial arts films just for the entertainment of it but wasn't much impressed by the choreo of most of them. Remember those 'hup, two, three' type kung-fu movies that came by the hundreds after Bruce Lee, including old Jackie Chan ones, moving up, literally, to the flying (on the string) ones. Then, I was impressed, for the first time, when I watched Jet Lee's Fist of Legend. I thought that it was as good as it can get.. Strange though, after all these years, there's nobody who can beat ol' Bruce. Wonder why. He was a hyper. He had a nerve and a reflex of a cat; maybe that did him in too...
...when some poor folks ask you for help - and there are lots of 'em here - and you get annoyed, thank God it wasn't you who's asking... and you'll give more cheerfully...
Finally watched IP Man 2 and it was also a good film. It was just like Rocky 4 and fighting a boxer at the end was quality especially the young Bruce Lee coming in.
Watched snake and the eagles shadows with my son and he loved it. I had forgotten how brilliant it was. There is funny, comical, and had superb moves. Quality film.
IP man is the bollocks. Only just watched it myself, wicked film
When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough
Not really a martial arts film but watched Warlord with Jet Li in and it was very gory fight scenes.
Watched Chocolate and it was crap, although the end fight scene was good.
Fist of fury 2.
Game of death 2.
There are other flicks I like too, like rapid fire and the crow
Enter The Dragon.
...into karate since kid, even before Bruce became famous, it's hard for me to appreciate martial arts movie these dayz, some of the cinematic tricks and theatrics are too obvious for us... but I liked the scene of 'snake charmer' kung-fu lady (at the Shaolin temple?) in the latest Karate Kid movie... I miss the old school drunken master series a bit though, they were always entertaining...
