    Ok so I rented City of Violence and Seven Samurai and sat down by myself and gave both of the films my complete undivided attention.

    City of Violence was pretty good, but it seemed like they were trying to hard to tie up all the loose ends in a short amount of time. Still a great MA film.

    Seven Samurai is spectacular, not just as an MA film, but as a film in general. Excellent story, excellent characters, excellent acting. Fucking spectacular, it should be, not only a cornerstone of Japanese cinema, but a cornerstone for all cinema. If you haven't seen it, get your ass to the store and rent it immediately.

    i would recommend any of the "Bourne" movies... identity, supremacy, or ultimatuum, and a flick written by Bruce Lee called "Circle of Iron" or it is sometimes called "The Magic Flute"

    You can't go wrong with Seven Samurai.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Okay, I haven't really read through all of the posts, so I'll give you my thoughts on what martial art movies you should get.

    I'm going to have to disagree with Ronin.74 about his movie pick of Circle of Iron. I saw it in the eighties and thought it was cool. I watched it again, recently, and the choreography was terrible. The movie itself didn't hold up. If it was made as Bruce Lee had intended, as I understand it; Circle of Iron would have been a lot like Ricki-Oh: the Story of Ricky.

    Half a Loaf of Kung Fu is still one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies.

    And, not to pick on you Ronin, I was disappointed with City of Violence. I really wanted to like it, really I did. The movie seemed to go for a Quentin Tarantino feel, but it wasn't sure of itself. Lots of cool shots and lots of cool camera work were used to good effect ie: the mass knife fight in the hallway. The MA fights in general were somewhat generic and stereotypical of TKD. Every other kick was a jump kick! Where were the punches? I think there were maybe ten in the whole film. As a whole, City of Violence was as disappointing as the Purifiers.

    If you like stuff like the Seven Samurai, check out Sword of Doom.

    Sword of Doom. Good pick. Never liked Circle of Iron, not to pick on Ronin 74, but it seemed like the ultimate insult to have David Carridine, the guy who took the role Lee had thought of ( or at least his bio claims) on Kung Fu, to also take his role in what was to be a moive that he, Steve McQueen and James Coburn were to star in. Instead, we get Reb Brown (whatever happened to him) and Chrsitopher Lee. Now, if you saw it when you were loaded, it is a decent stoner flick.

    new2bjj: Jeff Cooper( mostly a tv actor from the 60's-80's), not Reb Brown, played Cord. You may remember Reb Brown from such suckfests as the Cage, the Cage 2, Captain America 1, and Captain America 2. Reb was also in Uncommon Valor with Gene Hackman, Fred Ward, Patrick Swayze, and a bunch of other dudes. If you want "classic" Brown though, check out Yor, Hunter from the Future. It is probably one of the most laughingly-bad-but-good films out there.

    Anyone check out any of the Sonny Chiba/ Mas Oyama films? They are: Karate Bull Fighter, Karate Bear Fighter, and Karate for Life. I've said it before and I'll say it again: If these movies are an accurate depiction of Mas Oyama's life, then the dude's a rapist and mass murderer! This is some silly stuff. Check out the Streetfighter, the first movie to recieve an "X" rating for violence. Return of the Streetfighter has a pretty good scene where Sonny Chiba encounters a bullshidoist in a spa; hilarity ensues.

    "Sanshiro Sugata" It is the epitamy of all martial arts films and every director/actor/whatever should strive to be 1/6th of it's greatness.

    This is the Kimura of Martial Arts Movies.

    [EDIT: I just noticed it's been already said, but that doesn't change my feelings about the movie]

    Oh. And on the Drunken Master one here's a fun game for you and the family to enjoy:

    Everytime Jackie takes a drink, you do too! The older (and IMHO better) one will leave you mighty happy be the end and the new one isn't as bad either (tho' not as good for the game)
