Honestly, I'm a big movie fan and collect dvd's but I never really watched any kung-fu movies. Anyone have any suggestions for some good kung-fu movies for someone who is just starting off? I'm leaning towards The 5 Deadly Venoms or Wu-Tang vs Shaolin.

Ong Bak is boring

DAmn this is tough to pick only one kung-fu movie! I have about 1000 so its hard to pick just one. I have EVERY kung-fu movie that WTC has sampled. I even made a list that was posted here on one of the older versions of the site.

My favorite shaw brothers film is: Monkey kung-fu aka stroke of death. At least that is my fav right now. :cool:

Yo I Just started buying kung fu flicks and i have 10 so far theyre all good. buy any ones, theyre all good, but not if you count 'the tuxedo'

03-19-2006, 08:16 PM
but not if you count 'the tuxedo'

U can't 8) And not Ong-Bak..

This is a tip that goes for all of yall. After have watched the three 36th Chamber-movies, watch 2 Champions of Shaolin. In that order.

And remember that there are 2 different 'Iron Monkey'-flix, that has nothing to do with each other. Both are nice, but I would recomend the first one, from -77 with Chen Kuan Tai, a straight 10/10.

But there are SO MANY!! Most of the movies in my old-school collection are great (a few suck though :P) But to give you some inspiration:

2 Champions of Shaolin
