I have yet to watch brave archer 2 and 3. I've had them for some time now.

Wu Master Killer - have you seen "shaolin martial arts"? You might like that.

IMDB - i agree its not that great of a site to look up kung fu movies. Its good to look up filmography. I like "hkflix" I think it is, or "hkcinema".

hkcinemagic - is the best way to go for researching kung fu flix. hkflix is a site for buying films...but it does feature some useful info.

theres also the HKMDB which is most useful, but i think u have to sign up for it or something..

next movie i'm watching is "pedicab driver". I"m gonna try to watch it this week.

Tai Chi Master (not Jet Li one) - I want to watch this one too. Anyone see this yet? I tried watchin it and it looked cheap. I just read up on it a bit, and apparently is was a tv show in china, so that explains the "soap opera" look of the movie. Its supposed to be good and have some really good fights. Any thoughts, opinions, reviews?

"next movie i'm watching is "pedicab driver". I"m gonna try to watch it this week. "

ur in for a treat...just be warned, theres plenty of plot in this one..but what action there is is tops.

"Tai Chi Master (not Jet Li one) - I want to watch this one too. Anyone see this yet? I tried watchin it and it looked cheap. I just read up on it a bit, and apparently is was a tv show in china, so that explains the "soap opera" look of the movie. Its supposed to be good and have some really good fights. Any thoughts, opinions, reviews?"

this tv series is absolutely amazing. the tv series (actually titled Master of Tai Chi) was directed and action directed by Yuen Woo Ping and his bro Yuen Cheung Yan..so that should already get u excited. the fights are honestly better than 95% of the 90s kung fu fights in film...and this is tv!! the dvd condenses 25 or so episodes into 2 1/2 hours, so u'll notice that some parts of the story leave u wondering..and some questions are never answered. however, most of the fights are left in tact, and they are ace. Wu Jing (SPL) is top notch in this one. the series came out in 97. if u know u can get it cheap, do it, u wont be disappointed. there are fights galore, the tai chi choreography is ace. based on straight fights, this is easily Yuen Woo Ping's best tai chi action...definetely better than Tai Chi Master and Tai Chi 2 in fights.

i goota aks is jackie in any shaolin based movies
haha?

Yes sir he does. Some of his older joints are shaolin based. One of my favorite Chan movies to this day is still......

"Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin" - Film was made in 1978, so it was before he was heavy on the comedy. Story is there was a meeting of the shaolin masters, and somehow they all get killed, and I believe the kung fu manual or kung fu secrets are lost/missing.

Other Chan movies I like are "Snake in the Eagles Shadow", "Dragon Fist", and "Fearless Hyena I & II".

I haven't seen any of these in quite some time. I don't even know if I own any of them anymore.

thanks, you just convinced me to download it. it's supposed to come out in august by the way:

http://my.opera.com/VegaTheTerrible/homes/blog/273665.jpg

The legendary fighter, Huo Yuanjia, was born a feeble child but he has never been short of fighting spirit. Twenty years later, Yuanjia now runs his family’s martial arts school. As a teacher, the most important lesson Yuanjia teaches his students is the one that rules his life: All actions must uphold his family’s reputation. As a fighter, he yearns to become the Champion of Tianjin. Only one man stands in his way - a ruthless fighter called Qin Lei. One day, Yuanjia returns from a trip to find his apprentice brutally maimed by Qin Lei. Blind rage fills Yuanjia’s body as he issues a hostile challenge to Qin - a fight to the death. When the fight brings devastating tragedy, Yuanjia finds that he must abandon everything he once believed to be true. Escaping deep into the heart of China, Yuanjia discovers the real meaning of martial arts. What he does not know is that soon, he must face a battle that’s going to demand more spirit and courage than any he has ever known.

my ban is up!
yay!

ima cop this movie

i got these films today:
young master
magnificent butcher
world of drunken master (by joseph kuo, lookin forward to this the most)

watched snake in the eagles shadow (5/5) this week
i thought it topped drunken master, but theyre both classics
ima need more yuen siu tien joints
hes the funniest guy ever!

Elaquent
06-08-2006, 12:24 AM
haha, glad to hear that man

"i got these films today:
young master
magnificent butcher
world of drunken master (by joseph kuo, lookin forward to this the most)"

out of those 3, world of drunken master is actually the weakest one. its not a bad film...but the story is pretty dull at times and quite confusing..but the fights are solid. not quite a classic, but a film worth seeing and owning i think. young master is a great film, Jackie's 3rd best oldskool film IMO, but which version did u get? if ur version features the old school english dub, just know that its HEAVILY cut...ie like 15 minutes cut. if u can, track down the Fox/Fortune Star dvd, its uncut. all of the fights have been cut in the oldskool english dub version..make sure u get the Fox disc if u dont already. Magnificent Butcher is easily the best of the 3 IMO...this is Sammo Hung's best film in terms of showcasing his skills...that man is agile like u wouldnt believe, and can do just about anything jackie and yuen biao can do..in addition to him and a stellar cast, its directed and co-choreographed by my man Yuen Woo Ping, so u can expect top notch fight scenes. i really liked the story too. ur definetely in for a treat with Young Master and Magnificent Butcher. World of Drunken Master is a fine film, i'd give it maybe 3.5...Young Master gets a 4.5 or a 5 from me, and Magnificent Butcher gets a 5.5 from me.

personally i liked Drunken Master more than Snake in the Eagles Shadow...for a number of reasons, but theyre both certifiable classics..both 5.5 films. Simon Yuen Siu Tien is real cool...if u liked him in Drunken Master..check out Dance of the Drunk Mantis..directed by his son, Yuen Woo Ping, starring his other son, Yuen Shun Yi, and it also features Hwang Jang Lee in an awesome villain role, Corey Yuen Kwai in a rare acting role, and Yen Shi Kwan. fight scenes top Drunken Master, and i think its a fantastic film..one of my fav YWP joints. no jackie tho...its actually Yuen Woo Ping's Drunken Master sequel...but no Jackie/Wong Fei Hung this time around.

anyways, for more Yuen Siu Tien, check out Dance of the Drunk Mantis and Sleeping Fist (starring Leung Kar Yan).

World Of Drunken Master - 4/5
i thought it was great, the cast of mystery of chessboxing including Ghostfaced Killer, some dope, but standard fighting
and a decent plot about 2 kung fu masters avenging their master 30 years after his death
joseph kuo is a legend

also, i was surprised that its sampled on one of my favorite songs KMD's 'Sweet Premium Wine'
anyone into KMD?

bells of death
7 man army
death chamber..aka shaolin temple
dragon fight...jet li


update....dragon fight

the last in my jet collection now i have all

it was a good flick
2 langs..eng and chinese
story was ok ...the presnt time in the movie was the 80's...some good fight sceans. a real young jet li fighting ..the fights were pretty good reminded me of shalion temple the jet li version

meltdown aka = High Risk

Wong Jing directed it, so be warned....the fight scenes are pretty good (choreographed by Corey Yuen), but there are too few of them. be warned, this really is more of a Jackie Cheung film...this film is actually Wong Jing's cheapshot/jab at Jackie Chan after the two had a falling out on the set of City Hunter. they make fun of Jackie quite a bit in the film. gets no higher than a 3/5 from me. i dont think its as bad as Dr. Wai, but its one of his weaker films for sure.

Sleeping Fist is a good flick...very Drunken Master inspired. Leung Kar Yan is awesome as usual.

i'd give World of Drunken Master a 4...but ig ets MAD slow in the middle of the movie...almost fell asleep a few times. otherwise, its solid. because of that, im droppin the score to 3.5

Dragon Fight is solid...probably one of the last time in Jet Li did his own stunts in his career b4 he fucked up his back and started using stunt doubles for everything. good 80s kickboxing film.

7 man army is a solid WW2 flick, and shaolin temple is pretty good if u like 5 shaolin masters. i hear bells of death is an amazing late 60s/early 70s wuxia flick.

Young Master gets 3.5/5 i respect that jackie put the whole film together hisself, but choreography wasn't great imo, story was aiight, some parts were very funny, certainly not as good as drunken master or snake in the eagles shadow

Magnificent Butcher - 4.5/5
in relation to Prodigal Son, its not as good
its better than kung fu master tho, and overall a very nice film with some fun training scenes and bits of humorous dialogue
the fighting was classic shit
def one to watch again

did u see the uncut version? if u did, then u should know that ALL the fights are butchered quite a bit...im talkin minutes chopped off..especially the finale. if ur copy features the oldskool english dub..its heavily cut. i think that its not quite as good as his films with YWP (SITES and DM), but its almost there. the choreography is brilliant IMO, on par with the best of the best at the time.

to answer ur question, i post in the audio board sometimes...and a few topics in the movie board if ive seen them..i guess i should post around more often, but i guess i luv discussing kung fu films the most.

update: bells of death

pretty dope flick..its a sword flick
some limbs falling off here and thier
the story is good..and the sword fights are good

wish it was a lil longer to show the training but never showd any tranning
....

its about a guy who comes home after work and finds his fam dead and one sister is kidnaped
so he go's out to find them but ends up finding a old guy killing off some guys and follows him to be his student
so it skips the training and go's strait to him finding the 3 guys who killed his fam....
in the act of finding the first guy he also revenges the death of this girls father who he just saved from a brothle,....witch killed her father ...
so she follows him throue out the flick
ends up killing the other guy in the next town
with a sword fight were a candle tip is ballenced on th sword

first to drop it throws down his sword,,,,haha

good guy wins ...

so he go's to another town finding the last guy but is clever cuz the guy is in jail so he kills 4 guys he over heard talking about the guy he is looking for is going to break out of jail so he kills them and ends up in jail with this guy
pretends to be his friend and excapes with him..at his place him and his sister meet but dont say any thing she runs off crying ..and now the bad guy knows somethings upo

so after killing about 100 guys he finaly kills his man but in the act the bad guy kills is remaining fam meber his sister
so now the good guy and the chick he saved run off and have a happy life


i giv this a 4.5

def a shaw brother feel to it
as it is a shaw flick made in the 60's

i thought Mar's Villa was alright..i'd give it a 3.5...but thats biased, cuz im a HUGE john liu fan.

just watched Enter the Fat Dragon and Tower of Death, easily the 2 best bruceploitation films of all. Enter the Fat Dragon features Sammo's genious in this early film...the plot is fairly interesting...the comedy was actually hilarious IMO..i was laughin my nuts off quite a few times..the fights are very bruce lee-ish, but entertaining nonetheless...the finale is classic Shapes tho with my man Leung Kar Yan. 4/5 from me

Tower of Death aka Game of Death 2 was tops as well...mainly cuz of Yuen Woo Ping's fight choreography. its a silly ass film, with the annoying stock bruce lee footage editing (a la game of death, but not as bad), but the fight scenes are no laughing matter...theyre ILL!! the finale is just straight crazy, that Bruce Lee impersonator (Tang Lung) is tops! story was decent enough, altho kinda silly and Hwang Jang Lee made a badass villain...the finale is one of the best ive seen in a while. 4.3/5 based on entertainment...3/5 if u dont like a little sillyness in ur kung fu. Game of Death 2/Tower of Death > Game of Death > Enter the Dragon...yeah i sed it haha

the challenger = 5.5
same cast and crew as one of my alltime favs, The Loot, its no surprise this film is of equal quality. Phillip Ko really stole the show in the The Loot, this time Norman Tsui Siu Keung steals the show...Phillip Ko is still on fire on this one, as is David Chiang. great plot and even better fights. mos def a classic

showdown at the cotton mill = 3.5
found this one to be average overall. the story was decent, but i must admit, much of the rating is due to the print...the imbedded subtitles were near impossible to read at times. fights were good overall, but i was kinda disappointed at the limited time Tan Tao Liang got on screen, and the finale wasnt as good as i was expecting. be that as it may, Tan and Chi Kuan Chun bust out some nice moves. slightly above average in my book.

Yo I just watched Kid With The Golden Arms that shit was good as hell. I don't watch many old kung fu movies, but out of the ones I've seen this one had the best fight scenes. Definitely some very impressive and talented fighting going on in this flick. The story was pretty good too. Now I know where 100proof got his sig from. I don't get why it was named after Golden Arms instead of Hai Tou; it was more about him. He was definitely a gangsta character. Overall, dope movie! I agree with your 5.5 rating.

I'm leaving for China this Saturday and I'll stay there for two weeks. More information on it in General Chat tomorrow, but it should be a great trip. I'm going to the Shaolin Temples too! I'll take pictures for ya'll. Peace.

hey bob99digi/100proof, i watched Bullet in the Head last night.

Bullet in the Head = John Woo's best all around movie. Tony Leung and Simon Yam are cool as ice in this one...some sick gunplay and even a bit of basic MA too. story is really engaging about 3 friends who got dreams of makin it rich...until greed consumes one of them. wont give it away. direction is super slick as expected from woo..hardboiled has better action, but the acting, story, etc are all a step above. 5.5 for sure.

100proof, when i get a copy of it burned i'll msg u for ur address.

dammit, i was hoping you would say its garbage so I wouldn't be mad that I don't have the movie, lol.

Hard Boiled still my fav Woo flick. The killer is my movie too, like it a lot. I haven't even seen any of the better tomorrows though, which is strange due to all the movies i've watched and seen.

Have you seen "City on Fire"? John Woo joint. I think you said you did?

Once a Thief - damn i recently (6 months ago) bought this and watched it. I can't really even remember it right now, but my impression left in my head is that it was ok, not my favorite Woo flick, but not bad either, more like an average Woo flick. I'll throw it in and jog my memory.

Any of y'all watched the "Swordsman" movies??? There's three of'm.
First one stars Jackie Cheung, second jet Li and Brigitte Lin, third Brigitte Lin and Eddy Ko.

Sick ass trilogy, great swordplay, and funny aswell.
The third wasn't funny no more tho.

And...to be honest I liked the second one the most (and normally I don't like sequels that much), but Swordsman II is just...great.

City on Fire = not a John Woo flick. its directed by Ringo Lam. if u like Reservoir Dogs (Tarantino) you'll like this film. Chow Yun Fat is cool as always.

"Any of y'all watched the "Swordsman" movies???"

ive only seen the 2nd one...like 100proof im a huge Jet fan so it really swayed my opinion of it, but i swordplay flix really arent my style. not a film i would watch twice. its ok tho. but great if ur a swordplay/wuxia fan.

yeah i was very impressed with bullet in the head, all john woo fans owe it to themselves to see it. hardboiled is still my fav john woo film tho.

8 masters is by joseph kuo, its like a prequel to 18 bronzemen, with carter wong in a different role, theres a similar story, but 18 bronzemen has a pretty linear plot, in comparison so it gets 3/5
8 masters is a lot better for story, fights everything
hopefully return of the 18 bronzemen is better

Master of the Flying Guillotine is a certified classic. top notch film on all counts. if ur a big fan of that movie, i recommend checking out One-Armed Boxer..which is a prequel that came out in 73 i think (3 years before Master of the Flying Guillotine). remember that one scene in master of the flying guillotine where it goes into a flashback of Jimmy Wang Yu killing those two lamas (which turn out to be the blind man's students)? well that footage is from One Armed Boxer.

just watched a couple of punch and block/basher flicks last night

Hapkido aka Lady Kung Fu (1972 or 1973) stars Angela Mao Ying, Carter Wong and Sammo Hung...this flick is awesome. if u liked When Tae Kwon Do Strikes aka Sting of the Dragon Master, theres no reason y u wouldnt like Hapkido. lots of familiar faces in there, the fights, for the time, were exceptional...even in the early days, Sammo's fight choreography was still tight. good, simple plot regarding school rivalries..this one gets a 4.5 from me

Bloody Fists stars Chen Sing, Chen Kuan Tai, and Henry Yu Yung this 1972 basher directed by Ng See Yuen. the plot is solid, altho some parts of the film drag on quite a bit. the fight choreography, courtesy of the legendary Yuen Woo Ping (his 2nd official credit as fight director) is pretty good, altho hes outdone himself on other films during this period. chen kuan tai is a badass villain, but sadly doesnt get to fight until the very end. good story, and good fights (theres actually a fight which includes Yuen Woo Ping himself!!) make this a pretty good flick. i'd give it a 3.8 or maybe a 4.

return of the 18 bronzemen - 3.5/5
the bronzemen trilogy is very disapointing
this is better than the 2nd film, the fights are good, but the story is stupid
the main character is not easy to like
carter wongs a manchu who learns at shaolin
they find out hes a emperor or sumthin and he gets kicked out
then at the end he orders attack on shaolin!
i never seen a film where the bad guy is centre to the film and is dislikable like that
i need some more recomendations

Elaquent
06-29-2006, 06:37 PM
hey wu masta killa...check out The Heroes aka Wu Tang Clan...the film is centered around Ti Lung as hes the main protagonist...AND antagonist..he plays a manchu who burns down the shaolin temple and imprisons all of the students there...really really interesting twist...which some kickass Robert Tai choreography.

i saw one of the 18 bronzemen films a long time ago, but i dont remember it very well...i remmber thinking that it was solid.



on a side note, Kung Pow licks balls IMO and is an insult to classic martial arts cinema. for whoevers interested, check out Savage Killers aka Tiger and Crane (i think thats the aka name) starring Jimmy Wang Yu and Lau Kar Wing. this is the original film which Kung Pow borrowed footage from to use in Kung Pow...its a solid film.

Sleeping Fist is dope...good old Sam Seed/Yuen Siu Tien stars in it too as, surprise, surprise, a bum lol. fights are a little more creative..story and acting are essentially the same, since it stars pretty much the same cast and crew and director.

warriors two coming in? ur mos def in for a treat, that film, even tho i still believe is overrated, is still a great flick and mos def a classic. prodigal son is actually a loose prequel to this film..its sammo's first Wing Chun movie. the finale is ace, Casanova Wong is real dope. as usual, Sammo Hung himself steals the show. Leung Kar Yan's acting is ace, as he plays Leung Tsan. 4.5/5.5 for me.

7 man army is alright. like 100p sed, its more story based..but a good film nonetheless.

as for sonny chiba..if u take his films for what they are, and remember than they are japanese karate movies and NOT chinese kung fu flix, then theres no reason y shouldnt enjoy them. the fight choreography is really rugged and sloppy (most of his most popular films came out 1973-76), and they are really gory...for its time. trivia tidbit...Sonny Chiba's The Street Fighter was the first film in the US to get an X rating for violence alone! tame by todays standards, but damn fun to watch. crazy gore and blood. Street Fighter is extremely easy to find, and inexpensive, so u should try the first one out and see if u enjoy it. theyre lots of fun.

For anybody interested (and i'm not sure if this was mentioned before) in picking up some cheap kung fu movies, Wal-Mart has been selling these $1.00 DVDs on a rack in their stores. I sifted through the racks and found a SHITLOAD of Kung Fu flicks. I got a bunch of Sonny Chiba, Bruce Lee, Bruce Li, Jackie Chan, Jimmy Wang Yu, Jet Li, etc...The DVD's usually have 2 movies on them each, sometimes only one. My only problem with these DVDs is they are just the english dubbed versions. You don't get the option of listening to them in Cantonese/Japanese and reading the subtitles, but they are still fun to watch.

For only a dollar, i'd go pick up a bunch and check out some old school kung fu shit. Not all of the titles are really good, but there were quite a few that I have enjoyed. I bought like 30 of them when I was there, and I will probably go back and see if they have any more I didn't get while looking through the racks.

Kung Fu flicks are usually cheap anywhere you go. I've got a ton at Pawn Shops for real cheap as well.

The latest movie I watched was Blood Of The Dragon with Jimmy Wang Yu and I enjoyed it alot. Very dope movie for what it is, and the year it was made.

And for the person who asked if we had gotten into Kung Fu movies because of the Wu-Tang Clan, personally I can say no. I was watching Bruce Lee flicks back in the later 80s and early 90s and have loved Kung Fu movies since I was a little kid. I can't speak for everyone on the forum though, but that's just me.

blade of fury didnt do it for me...enjoy pedicab, theres not much action, but the action there is unbelievable ie Sammo Hung vs the legendary Lau Kar Leung. finale is great too. crouching tiger is great..one of the few wuxia movies i really like.

kagemusha...sed to be better than Seven Samurai? may have to check this out.

review update: just got these films:
Dragon Fight
Wing Chun
Shaolin Mantis
Plook 1 (old school thai flick)
Hero (Corey Yuen, not the Zhang Yimou)

dragon fight was good...the action was solid...a bit disappointing, i was expecting more....needs a bit more action, but the finale was good. id give it a 3.8..Wing Chun is a wire-fu classic in the tradition of Iron Monkey...great fights and entertaining story. that gets a 4.3 from me..Shaolin Mantis is better than i remembered...unique twist on a typical storyline, but the ending was wtf?! im a big David Chiang fan, so maybe its a little biased. great fights as expected from LKL, but highly fictional in its legend of mantis fist. i give it a 4
Plook 1 is an awesome flick from Panna Rittikrai (choreographer of Ong Bak, Tom Yum Goong), made at around 1981 im guessing...no subtitles, so i cant tell yall about the plot, but the action is tops...AMAZING stuntwork for the time and good choreography. i'd watch it over ong bak anyday. 4.5 for me..

finally checked out Hero starring Yuen Biao and some japanese dude..(1998), its actually produced by Shaw Brothers in 1998, and its also a remake of Chang Cheh's classic Boxer from Shantung. Corey Yuen's remake is very faithful, and entertaining to watch. the action really caught me offguard, im a big fan of Corey's action, but this film really impressed me. great fights with a great plot. this film kinda went under the radar. gets a solid 4 from me. also stars Yuen Wah (KF Hustle)

the "official" sequel to Drunken Master is actually Dance of the Drunk Mantis (1979). directed by Yuen Woo Ping, starring Yuen Shun Yi, Yuen Siu Tien, Corey Yuen Kwai, and Hwang Jang Lee. basically the same cast and crew from Drunken Master 1 minus Jackie. however this sequel is every bit as good as the original..better action, better than avg story, etc. Drunken Master 2 (94) is a very loose sequel, in the fact that the 2 films do not relate story-wise, and like u sed, they take place in 2 completely different settings. the only thing in common is Jackie Chan, and if u watch closely, many of the drunken techniques are the same ones as in the original.

in any event, Drunken Master 2 is a certifiable classic film, and one of the best films of the 90s, and one of the best kf flix of all time. that films an easy 5.5. personally i prefer the original one more, but theres some bias there. make sure u check out Dance of the Drunk Mantis if u havent already done so.

Elaquent
07-30-2006, 02:15 PM
Fist of Fury aka Chinese Connection is easily IMO, Bruce Lee's best all around movie. good plot and acting, great fights. Enter the Dragon is a very overrated film IMO. there are 2 really good fights to look forward to in the film...the finale sux, and the pacing is slowww..plot is full of loopholes, i just dont enjoy that movie. Fist of Fury is my fav, and 2nd place is a toss up between Big Boss and Way of the Dragon..i think im leaning towards Big Boss...but i love both films. Game of Death is entertaining...to say the least..

i rate Heroes of the East higher than 36 chambers for many reasons. at its heart, 36th Chamber is just like every other Manchu/Qing Dynasty film out there...: hero is oppressed by manchus...learnes kung fu from shaolin..comes back and gets his revenge. the only difference between 36th and the other films is that the fights take a back seat to the training. having that sed, 36th is still a great film...but heroes of the east had a much more interesting story, better fights, more fights, while retaining that martial way theme that i love. its a mad educational film too...i learned a lot about chinese and japanese martial arts. to me, 36th chamber is a 5.5...just cuz its essential viewing...but my real rating of the film is a 4..maybe 4.5. heroes is a definete 5.5 from me. but thats just me.

review:
rewatched Rebellious Reign very recently, this flick is a hidden gem for sure. the fight choreography is absolutely sublime, but this is a more story driven film. word is, that the film was actually intended for Bruce Lee to star in, but when he died, they shelved the film...but they made it anyways in 1980 with Lung Fong instead of Bruce. dont get the wrong idea, no bruceploitation there, lung fong doesnt try to be like bruce. defientely the most political kf film ive seen...it takes the ming/qing storyline and takes it a lot deeper. great all around film. 4.5 for me for sure.

i thought 36 chambers had real emotional weight to it, liu chia hui is really a very gifted actor as well as a martial artist
that film is classic to me
heroes of the east is great though, i might have to watch it again to fully appreciate it, the fights were really at the forefront in it, where 36 chambers is more about the atmosphere and acting

i agree, 36th was emotionally driven, and is definetely a classic. Heroes of the east was more story driven..well the first half at least. the action def took the backseat till about 3/4 thru. but i was more interested in the plot and the development of gordon liu and his wife's characters moreso than the action, which is VERY VERY rare in an oldskool kf flick! that flick will always stay close to me. but i respect ur opinion, im not belittling 36th in any way.

"never seen game of death, i said i seen all his shit, but i kind of ignored that one, it was made 5 years after he died, i thought it sounded a bit dodgy
but you say its the least of his films right?"

well, depending on how u approach the film, it can be one of bruce's best films..or his worst. best due to the amazing finale that contains real bruce footage. the rest of the filim was shot with a double and bruce lee inserts from other bruce movies. in one scene, they even cut out his face and paste it on the double's! get Warriors Journey instead.

5 Superfighters - havent seen, but same cast and crew of Stroke of Death, minus Ching Siu Tung.

ok, here are a few recommendations of some good SB flix..

Stroke of Death aka Monkey Kung Fu - underrated ass movie starring future legendary director Ching Siu Tung

The Duel - classic Chang Cheh iron triangle film, starring Ti Lung and David Chiang

Five Fingers of Death - classic SB basher starring lo lieh in a rare hero role

Naval Commandos - havent seen it, but i hear its really good...if u like 7 man army, u should like naval commandos (so i hear)

5 Superfighters - havent seen, but same cast and crew of Stroke of Death, minus Ching Siu Tung.

Bastard Swordsman - im REALLY not a fan of wuxia, but this is quite a renowned swordplay flick...fights are pretty interesting.

just off the top of my head...
props ive got 5 fingers of death but havent watched it yet

just watched 5 super fighters today, good story about 3 students getting revenge for their master against "the specialist" who goes around challenging lesser skilled fighters
the fights and choreography were surprisingly good, although some of it is sped up
imo its 3.5/5 not amazing but you wont regret watching it

cool, glad uve got it now...its really an excellent film. u may not need to get a region free player. look on google to see if u can region-hack ur dvd player. its easy to do...just type in the exact model of ur dvd player, and also type 'region hack'. otherwise, get a Cyberhome dvd player, theyre like 40 bux and apparently theyre the easiest to hack.

"sonny chiba 4 pack street fighters....
the buddhist fist
dreadnaught....yuen biao"

very good batch...ur in for quite a treat..especially with Buddhist Fist, thats a classic.

nice man, let me kno what u think of all those flix...legend of a fighter and wheels on meals are classics.

just watched Dragon Tiger Gate (2006)..its been out in HK theatres for about 2 or so weeks. its a solid slightly above avg film..plot is really underdeveloped and i didnt care for any of the characters...the fight scenes are good, with only a few standout moments...didnt justify the hype. i expect more from donnie yen and wilson yip. 3/5 from me.

08-09-2006, 12:20 AM
btw, Street Fighters Last Revenge is a very entertaining flick. not as good as the first 2, because theres more exploitive violence, and sonny chiba is more of an all around badass in them...but SFLR is still worth checking out.

that depends on how much find it for...if u can get it the 4 flix for like 5 bux or somethin go for it, for sure, but if the price is like 20 bux or somethin, then i'd say no, look around for a single copy. generally u can find these films really cheap.

Tiger on Beat is NOT directed by john woo, its directed by SB legend Lau Kar Leung. also stars Conan Lee (from ninja in the dragons den). the Tiger on Beat movies are pretty love-it-or-hate-it among most fans...personally, i didnt like them. i dont think Lau Kar Leung is cut out for modern settings. so i guess its a toss up to u.

ive seen Holy Robe and Hardboiled. Hardboiled is my fav john woo flick..gun battles are absolutely ridiculous. good story too. if u watch carefully, u can catch Venom Phillip Kwok/Kuo Chui in a role in there. Tony Leung and Chow Yun Fat are cool as ice in this movie. a definete 5.5 from me.
Holy Robe of Shaolin is a cool mainland chinese kung fu flick. the fights overall are pretty solid, and the locations are interesting, however the main problem with this film is that some parts are very very slowwwww. it stars the Iron Monkey (93 version) himself, Yu Rong Guang in an early role. directed, choreographed and possibly written by Tsui Siu Ming (the monk from Buddhist Fist). overall its a good flick, i give it a 3.8

Enter The Dragon - 5/5
this film is sick!
plotline is simple (no surprise here), but its so damn cool, i think its the best fight scenes out of all bruce lee films
truly incredible shit
why do you think its overated elaquent? id say its on the same level, maybe better than his other flicks
yall know anything about john saxon and jim kelly?
i kinda feel like seeing some more of their shit

wow, my 2000th post, and im not makin a lame thread about it either

"why do you think its overated elaquent? id say its on the same level, maybe better than his other flicks

glad u asked that. let me break it down for u..plot was uninteresting and corny to me..tried to rip of james bond or something. theres no emotional element to the film, i didnt care about any character in that movie aside from bruce...and its only cuz its bruce. the fights dont compare to his HK films, and the only fight i liked is his fight wiht bob wall (ohara). and the underground fight. everything else was crap. but it was cool seeing bruce having a sparring match with sammo hung in the beginning. pacing is slow as shit, and i fell asleep like 3x b4 watching the first real fight scene. lost count of the amount of plot holes, and the endfight just sucked. i did like jim kelly's one liners tho. bottom line, enter the dragon's legacy only lies in the fact that its Bruce Lee IMO...substitute bruce lee with, lets say, Jack Long or anybody else, and i guarantee u nobody would give a shit. i dont think its a bad film, its ok at best...but when ppl call this the "greatest kf movie of all time" it just confuses me. Fist of Fury aka Chinese Connection had a much tighter story, better acting, and the fights were more interesting to me at least. it was bruces best all around film. Way of the Dragon had a simple, but effective story, and easily the best action out of all of Bruce's movies. big boss had a better than avg plot, and bruce was just cool as ice in it. for a movie which is supposed to be the 'best in the genre', it was very disappointing to me. sorry for the rant haha

john saxon didnt do many martial arts films as far as i kno...i kno he did some other b movies. if he did more kung fu flix, i dont kno about them. as for jim kelly, he did a few...check out Tattoo connection, co starring Tan tao liang. its a decent film, but its cool seeing him in an asian film. he was also in a movie called black samurai i think...i dont remember it much, but i remember it being a fun film...he did some blaxploitation i believe.

ShaDynasty
08-11-2006, 06:00 AM
hahaha
i think enter the dragon is great, a true classic
its true that it wasnt a very emotional film, but its a showcase for bruce lee really
i enjoyed it a lot, maybe not more than chinese connection though
i definetly thought it was better than way of the dragon

ive ordered game of death now so my bruce lee collection will be complete

hahaha i just checked imdb apparently john saxons in dusk til dawn and beverly hills cop 3!
jim kelly had some films i might check out, black belt jones and 3 the hard way

Elaquent
08-11-2006, 11:10 AM
"i definetly thought it was better than way of the dragon"

no way! way of the dragon was easily bruce's best film action wise...the nunchaku fight in Way of the Dragon > everything in Enter the Dragon. for a film with such a rubbish story, theres surprisingly little 'quality' action in it. haha to each his own, but nobody is going to convince me the film is any better than 'ok'.

Boxer From The Temple - 3/5
billed as a sequel to 5 Super Fighters
actually has nothing to do with that film but one of the same actors
choreography is quite good
story is pretty unimaginative:
student leaves shaolin temple, marries then his wife gets killed, he goes after the cats behind it, kills them etc
this film is aiight pretty silly though
sample dialogue:
(dude works in a restaurant and a group of bandits won't pay)
dude:if you dont pay, we can't pay our staff, then we'll have to close down, does that make sense?
bandit1:are you insulting me?
bandit2:yes he is

Shaolin Martial Arts - 4.5/5
very good film, somewhat similar to 'invincible shaolin'
great cast, i really mean great........fu sheng, gordon liu, szu shih, wang lung wei and even yuen siu tien makes an appearance as a stubborn kung fu master
the story is standard, but there are great training scenes, really good fight choreography (especially for 1974), and good acting
i would give it the full 5/5 but it was about 10 minutes too long and the love interests either should have played a fuller role or not been there at all
overall i really recomend this flick
