Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon by far. For its stunning backdrops and magical fighting sequences. Ip Man is a close second!
Manuela's DVD 700 Club
You gotta go back old school. It's all about Kung Fu Theatre on a Saturday afternoon watching the "The Five Deadly Venoms". How can anyone forget the Centipede, Snake, Scorpion, Lizard, and Toad? But don't under estimate the teacher's last pupil. IT'S SO GOOD!!! If you love martial arts, then you will LOVE this movie. Guaranteed.
Definitely Shaolin Soccer, extremely fun to watch and just plain eye candy!
I have to say that Mortal Combat was my favorite one so far. Yes, it is cheesy and full of inconsistencies, but I loved it. Cool fights, great martial artists portraying the characters (well, some of the characters) and amazing fight venues. Let Mortal Combat begin!
The 36th Chamber of Shaolin =)
Enter The Dragon.
In addition to the visceral realism of the fighting itself, the film is rivaled by few other pure martial arts films for force of impact around the world. And also teaches you should shave your chest before fighting shirtless, if I am not mistaken.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Tough Call-I'm going with Sukiyaki Western Django-great story and very stylishly told. fantastic cast and very funny as well.
Enter the Dragon without question. Bruce Lee was the best!
3 Ninjas. It's kind of lame, but it's just solid fun and I loved watching it as a kid.
Kung Fu Panda because I like computer animated comedies.
I thought Ong Bak 2 was a great one. It offered rarely seen martial arts from Thailand. Action all the way. Good storyline with a sequel due out January 2011.
Way of the Dragon I mean come one Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris!!!!! How can you beat that? Not to mention it was the only movie Brue Lee worte and directed entirely
Kill Bill was phenomenal. I found Uma Thurman's performance to anchor that movie in a "believable" way, and I could identify with her character!
I would have to go with the Kill Bill series. I love the fact that it is some serious old school fighting but with the new school editing and special effects!
It's gots to be Jet Li's "Fist of Legend" ....It starts out your classic tale of a student bent on getting revenge to honor his teacher, but then they also through in the race card (you know racism, Jap's vs. *****'s) to spice up the soup and they top the whole thing off with your side order of romance. Yup this ones got it all! If you're the hard to please, only happy when your hairs on fire type of adrenaline junkie then this is a must for you. All true martial arts movie fans gots to have this one Yo.
I enjoy all of Jackie Chan's early martial arts films, but Mr. Nice Guy is probably my favorite. I just love the action scenes during the mall chase!
I select a Martial Arts Classic titled "The Flying Guillotine" as my choice. Of course there many other films that are just as deserving.
Tough call. There's been so many changes in the style. I'd have to split the call old school/ new school and say "36th Chamber of Shao-Lin (or "Master Killer")" then and "Tai-Chi Master" now (sort-of now).
The Protector, Awesome Martial art Scenes
The Five Deadly Venoms is my favorite and an all time classic!
Bruce Lee ---Return of the Dragon ..The whole Movie but especially The Fight scene with Chuck Norris
The Five Deadly Venoms: Classic. I may be only 20, but even I know you cant have a complete martial arts movie collection without it. I've got a new tv, and 5 deadly venoms along with the Bruce Lee 5-Movie Dvd. Once I get a ps3 its the first thing i'm sliding in!
Jet Li's Fearless. It has great action scenes and a story of redemption and learning that martial arts aren't just for sport, but a way of life to preserve peace.
Once Upon a Time in China 1,2,and 3 my favorite scene being that of the Iron Belly dude ripping out the throat. another one that is much more recent is Ip Man with Donnie Yen. if you haven't seen this one you must pick it up. Ip Man was a teacher to Bruce Lee.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
