Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do

Does anyone remember watching kung fu theatre? Or how about all the old school kung fu movies. I forgot alot of the titles but many where in chinese and the words didnt match the movement of there mouths. Most of the movies were about revenging there fathers/teachers deaths.

"Shaolin Soccer"

I don't know how great the kung-fu is in this, but for sure this is a great comedy!!!

Anyone remember Uncommon Valor.  One of the few times you see "The Great Patrick Swayze" lose a fight. And to Randall "Tex" Cobb.  One of my favorite quotes of all time are from that movie.

Brotherhood of the Wolf

A french film imported into the US with Mark Dacascos doing some amazing staff work (half it looks strikingly familiar to the WHKD staff form he developed...)

James Cagney filmed one of the first martial arts
movies in Western flick-dom...  "Rue de Madeleine"
(1946) as a spy for the Resistance.  Jujitsu techniques--
throws, chokes, shutos, and some (killer kaj) elbow strikes.

Can't remember the name of the movies, but Sonny Chiba was a pretty physical dude.  I liked some of the Jim Kelly and BKF moves but movie quality not that great.  I think I  was addicted to Kung fu theartre as I watched it every day for about two years.  Every Friday as kids we would go to the drive in to see Bruce Lee movies and then kick the stuff out of eachother after.

Good times

Ong-Bak, Thai Warrior


Got a copy of Ong Bok II last weekend. (In Chinese with Thai subtitles.)
Just as good as the first one.
