    Yes and No. They started with good movies and moved into quantity. I mean some of the bigger movies now are rips from old Shaw Brothers.

    Out of curiosity, care to post an example from that movie?
    I'll see if I can find any.

    **** that movie was so badass. I don't wanna spoil it, but it has a Psychopath on a Kung Fu Killing Spree.
    That movie is a massive kungfulicious orgasmic WIN. And what was with the soundtrack???

    It's def. one of my favorite high-flying ones. 10/10 on the must see Bullshidickter scale.

    Just you mentioning it, makes you my favorite poster today.

    I don't know about you guys, but there's something about the type of hokeyness in kung fu movies that I just absolutely love. Sure it's painful to watch, but it adds something intangible to the experience.

    It's almost like...hey, If I had a case of beer, and a few thousand bucks, I could make one of those. That's how I feel, anyway.

    I'm pretty sure it could be done for under $1000

    But.... more beer than that.

    Agreed. One of the things I love about KF movies is the ridiculous American accents in the some of dubbing. You're watching a movie about the temple and one of the monks sounds like a factory worker from Detroit and the other sounds like he went to boarding school in the south of france.

    You never hear accents from the deep south though. That would be a great laugh.

    A lot of MA movies shun competition don't they.

    Not strictly a martial arts movie, but in Game of Thrones Stark is all "I don't compete so people won't know what I'm capable of."
