Botankus you are absolutely right, it is from the band Pro-Pain, I'm a huge fan of them, I have actually hung out with them several times and they are very cool guys.....

I see you are from NC to, what part? I'm from Rock Hill SC about 20 minutes south of Charlotte NC....

As mention earlier the best way to get into Kung Fu films is to watch the Shaw Brothers movies. Then check out movies from Golden Harvest studios. I started watching the Martial arts genre since I was little. I would watch Kung Fu theather every weekend until it went off the air. Ever since then I been addicted to Kung fu films.

Unfortunally most of the best classics have not been transfer to DVD yet. And some are still on VHS and very hard to find. Others were only aired in America maybe a few times but never released on VHS. The Best bet is too do searches in video stores bins or orden them online.

Some excellent titles have been already mention, but here is a few of personal favorites:

Shaolin Master Killer
Thundering Manthis
Eagle's Claw
Master of The Flying Guillotine
Master with Cracked fingers
The Kid with the Golden Arm
Five Fingers of Death

Anyone hear of the Blind Swordsman? Its pretty a old movie but its just so cool how a blind guy can kick the crap outta guys that can see...LOL. Theres a new one out thats supposed to be really good and Im also looking forward to "Hero".

The One: Horrible

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Boring but a beautiful film, I felt like the movie was pointless at the end

The Seven Samurai (Epic or Drama or Martial Arts?): Great film, LLLLOOONNNGG but if you if you have enough patience it pays off, directed by Akira Kurosawa

I dont know much about Bruce Lee except that when filming the guy moved so fast the film had to be slowed down, which is off the scale considering that in old martial art movies the film was sped up, overrated or not, its crazy he was that fast

yeah, brandon lee was real promising, 'cept that he had to live in the shadow of his Dragon dad...anyone seen Showdown in Little Tokyo (with Dolph Lundgren...)? and he had the moves in RAPID FIRE...

Absolutely yes! I love the Zatoichi movie series! I got my collection of his more recent movies. Currently I'm try to get most of his early movies. Is a shame that Katsu died he was a great actor and he was the original Zatoichi.

The Zatoichi character kicks ass! A blind man who loves to gamble and gives massages to his victims and later kills them. That's super cool. big grin

Zatoichi is my favorite martial arts character of all time, the few movies Ive seen with him in it I liked a lot. Takeshi Kitano wrote, directed and played as Zatoichi in the new film hopefully he doesnt mess up the character. Shintaro Katsu was perfect for the roll in the earlier movies he acts so completely blind its hard to tell whether he is or not.

Not the biggest fan...

But I'd say I get a kick out of em'. I just bought HERO, ONG BAK: MUAY THAI WARRIOR, and ZATOICHI: THE BLIND SWORDSMAN.

I have all the Bruce Lee Movies, about 9 Jackie Chan Films, and 7 Jet Li Films (not including his western material).
