What is it? I have a certain amount of nostalgia for Sleeping Fist. That kid does some crazy stuff, like at 2:08.
I think it's called the something bronze or the bronze something. I got it at some yard sale as a kid and I remember this scene where a monk has to lift a red hot caldron with nothing but the in side of his arms and the burn leaves a marking symbolizing he passed the test and is some super monk/kug fu guy.
@Dany: thanks, now i have to go watch that movie again......(that clip was sooo good, they dont make them like they used to....)
My all time favourite has to be shaolin soccer or potentially Kung fu hustle.....who am I tho, especially after that clip, is also a possibility.
I'm sure some hardcore kung-fu aficianado who was actually alive to see these movies come out would find my tastes pedestrian, but I really really enjoyed watching Fist of Fury/the Chinese Connection
Game of Death.
When I first saw this movie, I had no idea about its legacy. A lot of "WTF IS THIS SHIT" moments when I watched it that made it a lot of fun. THEY USED FOOTAGE FROM BRUCE LEE'S ACTUAL FUNERAL HOW LOW CAN YOU GET
oh. THAT'S how low.
The Jackie Chan Police Story movies with number 3, Super Cop at the top because it co-stars Michelle Yeoh and the pair do some great stunts. After that Jet Li's The Legend (aka Fong Sai-Yuk) and its sequel. I mention a few more in this relatively recent Screened thread: Go a Martial Arts Itch.
Anything with boobies.
I'm unfamiliar with that type of Kung-Fu movie.
Apparently, you haven't seen enough Japanese female ninja movies.
Jet Li's Fearless is my favorite all time. I think it's his masterpiece.
Big Boss is a great Bruce Lee flick and one of my favorites from the 70s.
Drunken Master is the highlight of Jackie Chan's career I think.
Mine are all the popular ones I guess, but I wasn't big enough into kung fu as a kid to know the more obscure stuff. The Streetfighter movies (no, not that one- the Sonny Chiba ones) were really good, as well as most of the old John Woo flicks but I'm no aficionado on those.
Fist of the White Lotus and The 36th Chamber of Shaolin both starring Gordon Liu are pretty good if you're into Shaw Brothers stuff.
Also most of Jackie Chan's late 80's early 90's films, especially the ones he did with Yuen Biao and Sammo Hung.
@Owlhead: To be honest, I'd never heard of Cinema Snob before now. I used to watch a lot of the movies from BadMovies.org, which I assume predates TheCinemaSnob by quite a bit as I've been visiting that site for close to a decade. I've always loved REALLY GREAT bad movies.
Edit: That being said, I just watched the Cinema Snob episode... Nice...
