They were showing (the new?) Zatoichi in the Sydney Film Festival this year. I thought it was new until I searched and found it was made in 1989. I haven't seen it yet sad

Some of the stunts in Project A with Jackie Chan were the best I've seen, ever. Supercop's fight scenes were just crazy. I think Jackie really shined in that one. The choreography in Legend of the Drunken Master was perfect. For the old school I go for The Streetfighter with Sonny Chiba. Master Killer was a classic and Enter the Dragon is a personal fave. I wish Bruce had a chance to finish Game of Death himself. I think it would have been the best kung-fu movie ever.

I like jackie chans movies, not because the martial arts in them are so deadly, but because the way he does martial arts in his films makes it seem rather hilarious and very inventive.

Jackie has admitted that he was inspired by Buster Keaton and that most of his stunts are always a "must" for his movies. Jackie blends comedy and action perfectly fine. He is just one of a kind!

CTHD, Hero, House of the Flying Daggers and other films like these are Wuxia films, so nothing wrong with all the fighting and scenes against the laws of physics and so on. Very big in China these type of genre films. Very magical to watch, visuals.


Ong Bak was good for the action scenes, but didn't like the editing and the rest of the movie was awful, didn't like that.


Who Am I, my brother worked on effects/action scenes in this Chan movie, met Jackie as well.

Love watching Jet Li, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh and most others mentioned already.

Naturally, I am a martial arts fan big grin

Kung fu movie help

I saw his one Kung fu movie when I was a kid about a construction worker who was working in a Shaolin temple (or some kind of temple where they taught Kung fu). I remember them building scaffolding out of bamboo. The guy wanted to learn Kung fu, but they wouldn’t teach him because he didn’t seem to have any skill with it.

However, by watching the students while he worked, he learned and practiced by adapting it to his construction work. He eventually ends up helping the temple out, as I recall, when bandits or some other kind of “bad guys” started attacking the students and teachers there.

Does anyone happen to know the name of this movie? I’ve only been able to see it one time on television and, because it as so long ago, I can’t rember the name of it. Nor have I been able to find a description of a Kung fu movie that matches what I remember. Any help would be appreciated. I’d love to find this movie and buy it if possible. Thank you.
