  1. I was going to say Flashpoint but yeah, I'm sure SPL 2 was the last one I saw. Decent movie, it just overused wires too much.

    Why are Hollywood martial arts movies so bad?

    I will check it out!
  5. Jojo Part 5 UFC Daredevil (2nd viewing in progress) The Punisher (1st viewing completed a weeks ago. Waiting for season 2!) Baki Season 3 (waiting for Netflix to upload the other 13 episodes. Besides super inconsistent animation, I'm loving this!) Might watch Rizin tonight.

    Heh, I've actually watched every one of those, except Undisputed 3 and Ant-Man And The Wasp.

    City On Fire (1987)

    Made this gif sooner than later, given the recent news of Ringo passing away. I thought this was one of the coolest parts of the entire films.

    Ringo Lam R.I.P

    Thank you. Sucks to hear that Sky on Fire was badly reviewed.

    Ringo Lam R.I.P

    Oh no!!! I just watched City on Fire and that movie has been etched into my heart...Rest in peace, Ringo Lam. Thank you for all the contributions to the film industry you have made. Edit: was reading this http://malaysiadailynews.com/ringo-lam-hong-kong-director-of-city-on-fire-dead-at-63/, saw names like Tsui Hark, Johnnie To and Daniel Wu and I'm wondering, are Triangle and Sky On Fire any good?

    What are your latest DVD/Blu-ray purchases?

    I've honestly only been buying DVDs/Blu-Rays for a year (I believe Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods a few years ago on digital was my first film purchase) so I'll just list them all. Hardcore Henry (Digital and Blu-Ray. My first physical movie purchase. Had to buy it after seeing most of the movie with my bro. Mad Max: Fury Road. I saw this at Wal-Mart...and thought it was Blu-Ray because it was blue. Got my first Blu-Ray player with my PS4 and actually didn't have BR with Hardcore Henry, hence it being also digital. Anyway, massive BR library addition fail here and those cheap bastards at Wal-Mart didn't even give me a DVD with special features...luckily Fury Road is one of the greatest movies ever. Except for maybe The Godfather, this movie has the greatest pacing out of any film I've ever watched. I didn't know this had the original Mad Max director/writer/creator until weeks ago and it shows and then some. Seriously, this movie is even better than even that would imply. Like if Chris Claremont's return actually re-revolutionized the X-Men good. Riddick Trilogy on Blu-Ray. I thought this had the new Riddick film...but it ended up having the animated film instead. I'll skip Chronicles of Riddick, of course. John Carpenter's The Thing. Blu-Ray. My favorite and most watched movie of all time. Like with Pitch Black, I still haven't watched my own copies of the movie after not seeing this for 10+ years lol Master procrastinator.

    Really? Which recent Hollywood movies would you recommend, if you don't mind me asking. Genuine question since I've been behind on films in the last 10 years.
  14. I recommend Colour Of The Truth, Breaking News (Johnnie To), City On Fire, A Better Tomorrow 1 and 2, John Woo's The Killer and Hard-Boiled. Hard-Boiled, The Killer, John Wick 1 and 2 and just for the gunfu, Equilibrium.

    City On Fire (1987)

    I've finally gotten around to watching this on kanopy.com. I really loved the range of Chow Yun-Fat's acting in this. Outside of an American comedy or two, I've only seen him in nothing but serious roles. Well those movies sucked and I got to see Chow in a great multi-faceted performance. I'm also still sad after seeing this movie. It's been like 13 years but I'm definitely now back into crime Hong Kong cinema films like this again.
