    uh, ok I'll start .. here are ten that I like for whatever reason:

    * Enter The Dragon - the duel in white
    * Rumble In The Bronx - the refrigerator fight scene
    * Police Story - the mall scene
    * Miracle - the rope factory scene
    * Wheels On Meals - Jackie fights Benny the Jet
    * The Seven Samurai - Iaijutsu duel
    * The Matrix - Agent Smith vs Neo
    * Hitman In The Hand of Bhudda - Hwang Jang Lee against 3 thugs
    * Drunken Master 2 - end fight
    * Terminator 2 - biker bar scene :P


    I also saw the end of Lethal Weapon last night, Mel Gibson vs Gary Bussey using BJJ stuff back in the 80s. Pretty cool.

          X2? WTF? Are you thinking about the Deathstryke vs. Wolverine scene? Dude, that was more like "ninja flipping out and killing everyone" than "martial art fight scene".

              Always like Drunken Master 2 the one fight scene that hes trying to beat up people as his mom throws him drinks.

                    haha tru, i guess x2 isnt really a martial arts movie, but its "martial artsy" in that american way and it was pretty exciting, so i put it up there.

                        I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I really like Jean Claude Van Damme's "The Quest".

                        Not because of the story and definelty not because of Van Damme. I loved the other fights and fighters that were "inferior" to JCVD and his final opponent. I don't know who did the fight scripting, but I'd be suprized if JCVD had anytihg to do with it because it was generally so good. Most of the fights and outcomes seemed follow my schools basic fighting theory and I'll sometimes even use clips to outline certain points.

                        As far as the my vote on the best MA movie never made, Game of Death. I never get tried of my documentary DVD, that takes the original footage and arranges it in accordance with Bruce's notes. It's awesome.
