  1. Ah, one of my favs... "Pops" is just a joy to watch in action. I would have loved to have seen him in a modern movies with cinematography like the first Matrix or and RAID movie. Yes Drunken Monk, just listening to him teach is almost as good as his action scenes.

    Rejected Avatars

    The ones I could have used were worthy enough... I just have a love for my fav character Ryu Hayabusa more. Some others I would have used:

    What's the most amount of movies you've watched in a single day?

    I got about 3-4 in on a Sat one time... Now, if we talking "self-advancing" to the "important scenes", then maybe 6-7 lol.

    The Bolo Yeung Documentary: Release Date TBA

    Will have to peep this. .....
  5. Ok, we all here love our MA genre and all things related. So I was thinking the other day about certain aspects I love in my MA films. One of my many favorites is the "I gotta check your ***" scenes. Now, these scenes may be serious or playful, but they are meant to relay to us when a character has to be respected, no matter how you feel about them. They are the reason that makes me replay a sequence 1000x of times because of the intensity, the crispness, the humiliation, the embarrassment or the just outstanding display of "Boy... You must not know bout me" < / Beyonce > confidence(lol) a male or female protagonist or antagonist will show in that brief moment of "testing". They usually happen early on in a movie, or when someone needs to set the tone for the plot. And when they are done right, they make you think, "OMG, he/she/that Was. Just. Bad. Ass!!!" With that being said, I'll start off with both a "serious" and a "light" moment - to give the first example: Serious - Shaolin vs Lama (1983), Grandmaster Pu Chi-eh vs his former student Yao Feng-lin ...Best line from the movie was said by the villain Yao Feng-lin, Light - The Prodigal Son (1981), Lam Ching-ying(Leung Yee Tai) vs Yuen Biao(Leung Chang) at the opera So many films that I know ya'll can touch on with a moment in them like that... I can go on forever with little scenes that dance through my head when I reminisce/think about awesome fight scenes. :-) How bout you guys? What are some of your most loved, "check your ***" scenes?
  6. I gotta find the store where DY buys his bottles of "youthful drinks" lol.

    Kung Fu Sound F/X you grew up loving and now hate?

    I've always hated that excessive smokey & mystical "appear suddenly" from thin air sound effect(that boing sound) in those spiritual-types of MA films... Which, outside of a few joints with exceptional choreographed fight moves/sequences(like say, in Legendary Weapons Of China), I can't stand. ...Almost makes me turn them off the moment I hear it(unless I'm captivated by the action contained therein).

    Steven Seagal caught up in the sex fiasco

    That Seagal goatee of his has "old Russian pornstar" written all over it.

    Donnie Yen = Sylvester Stallone

    Sly was very good in Creed, I thought. Enjoyed his supporting performance.

    Physical, Digital, or Both: What Are Your Thoughts?

    This. Speaking as a man with a 65" LG OLEDE7P 4k HDR WebOS Smart tv, I'm "ok" with streaming in general, but for certain movies where visuals are a premium, I want that ~36Mbp/s(sometimes as high as 90Mbp/s!), minimum bitrate of UHD Blu-rays that my Oppo 4k UHD blu-ray player delivers in resolution to my monitor that Netflix & other streaming sites w/lower, compressed bitrates simply cannot atm... Outside of say, Google fiber or FIOS, for example. "Streaming" 4k content starts around ~20Mbp/s, and over time this will rise with the UHD codecs(like VP9) getting better. You can see the improvement when it's lossless indeed. ...But bottom line, I want physical media for the flawless resolution achieved watching those few "classic" films that I love.
