  1. What decade? Is World War 2 the cutoff? Anything post WW 2 isn't a period film anymore? But I'm sure a lot of people would consider Ip Man 2 a period film even though it was the 1950s. Whats your take?
  2. Thumbs up or thumbs down? Im giving it a thumbs up. This one seemed to split the critics and I can see both sides of the argument for this movie. Yes it's too Hollywood and yes what the little Monk was carrying (don't want to spoil) was out of left field but I'm giving this one a pass based on the performances and soundtrack and cinematography. My favorite scene was when Li and Old Diehard went to recruit help. What say you?

    This is all I've seen from this decade

    Well I did watch another last night. "The Final Master (2015)". My list is slowly growing.

    Zhao Wei or Zhang Ziyi?

    Ok maybe legendary is too strong a word. Who was a bigger box office drawl?

    Zhao Wei or Zhang Ziyi?

    So that was true about her prostituting herself? I heard about it but never looked into it so I wasn't sure. wikpedia says Zhao was the most popular actress in China during her peak.
  6. Who's more legendary?

    Oh wait I have seen Legend of the Fist. I figured there were a few I forgot about. No recommendation for The Grandmaster?
  8. 2010: Ip Man 2, True Legend, Reign of Assassins, 14 Blades, Legend of the Fist: Return of Chen Zen 2011: Shaolin, Wu Xia, The Lost Bladesman 2012: 2013: Special ID 2014: Rise of the Legend, Kung Fu Killer, Brotherhood of Blades 2015: Ip Man 3 2016: Call of Heroes, Sword Master 2017: 2018: Should I be banned from this site for not being a true fan and seeing every movie that's released?

  10. This was also the decade where CGI began to take center stage. It began to appear in films that didn't really need it either. Films like "House of Flying Daggers", "Warriors of Heaven and Earth", "True Legend". Then films like "The Promise" and "Zu Warriors" made me realize CGI was the worst thing to ever happen to Asian Cinema.
  11. I'm looking through every year of this decade and there's only a handful of movies that actually stand out. You would think after CTHD a new Golden Age of Kung Fu films would have happened but it just wasn't the case. The 2010s weren't all that amazing either but they were still better than the previous decade.
  12. Both movies are from 83 I think? Watched both for first time this weekend. Neither are insanely popular but seem to have a dedicated following. Which one do you prefer? I'm giving slight edge to The Supreme Swordsman.

    What is the most recent Shaw Brother's film you've seen?

    I just finished a first time viewing of "The Supreme Swordsman" (1984). Decent flick. Would probably just miss my top ten of 80s Shaws.
