  4. I only started this topic to find out about you. You really surprise me, as I feel you are the single worst member of this forum. I don't know why you are the way you are, but it's beyond my understanding. You appear to be a fan of Kung Fu films, yet are always so against them. I would have a better chance of finding out the theory of everything than trying to understand you. There's no need for this topic to continue... my theory has been proven wrong. Even real fans can end up putting down the genre. You've bothered watching all those films, but don't even like Born Invincible!? That's really pissed me off... I'm done with this forum. Good-bye!
  5. Hey KFS, I'm willing to bet money that you haven't seen all 10 of those films. BTW, Super Ninjas is on there.
  6. I am not responding to anyone unless they've passed the test, otherwise you are too low level to be taking up any of my time: http://www.kungfucinema.com/forums/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=10759
  7. Has Jackie Chan seen Massacre Survivor yet?
  8. Address: The Old Classic Cinema, 211 Clapham Road, SW9 OQH - opposite Stockwell Tube Station. Doors open 6pm till Midnight showing Fists, The Kicks and the Evils + Massacre Survivor so bring your horns cause it's going to be a road block. Pass on the good news!.
  9. I feel my shapes level is quite high, though I'm below people like rdenn and DESCENDENT to name a few; those guys have really studied shapes more than anyone I know.

    Question about Massacre Survivor print

    As the reels were playing back, there was obviously a physical problem with that part of the film and hardware used to play it back. The whole process from start to finish was entirely documented in the Massacre Survivor topic, including scans from the 35mm, and the other topic about how it was restored.. It was transferred and restored in a very short space of time. It went from reels straight to 2 DVDs in about 4 separate recordings. This was then edited together and colour corrected, etc.
  11. I'm noticing something very peculiar about this forum. Whenever I talk about how good Classic Kung Fu Movies are, I get a lot of negative replies by certain posters being condescending and even putting down movies like Born Invincible, which are considered classics by the real fans. Something isn't right, yet I've experienced a similar problem in music forums; people who seemingly have no passion about the subject will come along to chat about off-topic issues or use the forum as a general trolling ground. I know Kung Fu Movies are a very specialised form of entertainment, and that this is the best place to discuss them, but how many members who visit this forum are genuine Kung Fu fans? Perhaps you mainly watch modern films, but pop in here to have a vent? I know a way to find out... if all you've seen is a handful of Kung Fu films then there's certainly no valid reason to spend your time here. However, if you've made it your business to seek out at least the classics of the genre then you deserve to be here. This doesn't include members who sign up and make but a single post for a film ID then disappear. Have you watched ALL 10 of these classic movies? Yes or no? 1) Born Invincible 2) Super Ninjas 3) Enter The Dragon 4) 7 Grandmasters 5) Invincible Armour 6) Snake In The Eagle's Shadow 7) Way Of The Dragon 8) The Last Fist Of Fury / Real Bruce Lee 9) The Secret Rivals 10) Shaolin Vs. Lama
  12. Mark, you cannot understand why Born Invincible is such a high level movie in spite of the undercranking and framecuts. For that reason, I would place you on a lower level to shapes and silver hermit, etc. I feel that you would fall somewhere between the range of 30-40.
  13. I might not have tested Massacre Survivor out on a 100 people, but when a lot of complex and unusual routines are being observed at very high speed, is it really so absurd to think this might demand a certain level/kind of intelligence coupled with some additional knowledge in order to understand and appreciate? What is so controversial about this? There is certainly nothing past the mid-80s that could be described as complicated/nutty, unless a person is so thick that it might push them to the next level (level 2) where a shapes appreciator is on level 50. What shapes level are you at do you think?
  14. Guys, I've simply put forward my hypothesis about Kung, and yet everyone is acting inferior. It's got nothing to do with me being better/worse than you or vice versa; it's about finding out the truth behind the understanding of shapes. This is exactly what happened to galileo. He came out with a sound theory, but instead of trying to disprove it or look more at what he was saying, they simply took it out on the man himself. I'm not on a pedestal or trying to be superior. What I am saying is proven... I've already tested Massacre on first time observers, and they do not understand. I wish they did! Again, this has nothing whatsoever to do with me vs. you (and who is better out of us). Why can't we have a civilised discussion? Here's my last response; I would encourage everyone to continue the discussion, but leave out personal attacks against me if that's not too much to ask?
  15. Kung Fu Movies are some of the most high speed and complex visuals you are ever likely to come across... it ain't for simple minds! I am willing to go further and say that the more simple a fight scene is, the more popular the movie probably is. The shapes period of the late 70s was the peak of Kung Fu Movies, yet ones of the early 70s and mid-80s were more popular because they are easier to follow. I bet if I showed Massacre Survivor to an autistic bloke, he would love it first time!
