    For some reason I have never been able to get into most of Jackie's movies. I liked Drunken Master, I liked Forbidden Kingdom, I liked Big Brawl, but, oddly enough, I would say my two favorites of his would be New Police Story and Around the World in 80 Days.

    I like Jackie. Before him, the big Asian kung fu star was Bruce Lee. Lee was all about kicking ass. If you saw Bruce step into a room of 20 guys, you knew there would be screaming, snapping noises, and people getting their faces kicked in. Jackie was different though- if he stepped into a room of 20 guys, you knew that he was gonna escape their capture through amazing acrobatics, and he would look panicked and flustered instead of Lee's war cry badassery. I always thought that was what made Jackie so likeable- when facing crazy odds, he was flustered and didn't want to fight, but he was so good at it! You might call it "the art of fighting without fighting".

    I like the man.

    Most of his movies suck.

    As do Chuck's.

    As do most others ):

    Are there any, err, adult material martial arts movies? Is there hope?
