    I'm just as big a fan of martial artsy fartsy fight scenes like Jet Li and Martix type movie fighting. Well, ok, maybe I'm not, but I still enjoy them yet I watch them knowing I'm enjoying something on the realism level of DBZ. Also, having insight into sword fighting, I abhor the clang-clang-clang, you attack my sword and then I attack your sword (totally ignoring the human target behind the sword) kind of sword fighting you get from films.

    Perhaps I don't watch enough movies/TV but my eyes were instantly opened to what movie fights scenes could be like when I watched the Bourne Identity. Yeah, I know you're all huge Matt Damon fans and that you're thrilled when I talk about liking a fight scene that he's in, but hear me out.

    It was the first time I'd seen fight scenes in movies that look like they had a shred of realism. They were close in, quick and while they didn't have grappling like in take-downs they did have the whole grabbing and manipulating thing going on. The fights were fantastic, like any movie wants to be, but they weren't wholy unrealistic. My fave part was when a pen was used as a weapon.

    Tell what you thought and please fill me in if there are more movies out there like this.

    Back in the old days (70s, 80s) before wires and martial arts in fight scenes they used to just do the whole rolling around on the floor thing and trading punches. This is actually more realistic than the modern day fight scenes.

    Heh, that was before every hero/villian knew kung fu.

    I guess fights like was Fight Club had would be the most realistic, but then again, they weren't that exciting to watch.

    I think flying in the air doing jump kicks and using a ladder for a weapon is realistic fighting style! ALL BOW DOWN TO MY JACKIE CHAN FIGHTING SKILLZ! You better beware I've seen rush hour 4 times and The young Master 5 times!

    If you could manage to sit through the movie, then you might be mildly entertained by the muppet-fu. But that's a big "if".

    **The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Yoda shouldn't have to move, that bugged me. Anyway, the Olsen twins could kick Hayden Christensen's ass. And somebody SHOULD have kicked George Lucas' before he made these godawful POS.
