i noticed there was a thread for most annoying MA movie..so i figured there should be a thread where ppl name your favorite MA movies
My favorite as for now:
SPL (HK, came out 2005, has Sammo Hung in it)
Reason: besides good old choroegraphy w/ kickboxing/kungfu in it, they happened to incorporate BJJ in it...and actually make it look exciting onscreen. And there's a really nice weapon fight before it too

But for real, I haven't really seen a movie made outside of the US since... EVER, and as unrealistic as the matrix was i'm still going to kiss its ass. Ong Bak just annoyed me. I know, I lack diversity - I'm sure the MA-movie world doesn't end at Tony Jaa and Keanu Reeves

Any Jackie Chan movie made in HK.
The Jackie Chan Stunt team can make that **** look really really real. Painful even.

Enter the Dragon and Fearless Hyena are two of my favorites.

I was watching Enter the Dragon on TV the other day and was getting really bored.
I guess I watched it one too many times. I did however just buy 'Fists of Fury' on DVD for ten bucks, and will probably watch it tonight.

I found "The Crippled Masters" at Meijer for $1.99 after searching for it for about 5 years. My favorite part is their fillings.
But favorite MA movie? Maybe Mortal Kombat. I still remember how some of the commercials for it declared: "Finally, a martial art movie that doesn't suck."

The 'Karate Bullfighter' trillogy and 'The Street Fighter' were some of my faves.
Actually, come to think of it, Sonny Chiba was a pretty underrated MA actor.

Too bad it did. Anyone see annihilation? Gawd. Gag me with a front-end loader.
Phoenix, I found a four-disc Sonny Chiba collection at wal-mart for 9 bucks. The street fighter, return of the street fighter, and two other's i don't think i've watched yet. Some of them are pretty bad. Sonny Chiba however, uses d34dly krotty to remove a fat man's testicles with his bare hands. so cool.
edit: In 'the street fighter' doesn't he rip out a dude's throat? Awesome.
I haven't seen 'the Karate Bullfighter' trilogy. Is that also Mr. Chiba? Sounds like it's about Mr. Oyama!
