Absurd!


You don't throw around poisons like "Lord of Lies" and then NOT go into detail!

Like I said, this is all my opinion, though of course, I view my opinion as the most valid. :eplus2:

You've made THAT perfectly clear. :)

Well before painting me as an opinionated jerk, consider this: Who DOESN'T think their opinion is the best?

Yeah.... there really should be a sarcasm font. It should be huuuuge letters, purple and green.

Or, maybe I am a jerk. Either way, I'm stopping just short of caring here.

This is a martial arts movie thread, let's talk about some martial arts movies already! Some REAL martial arts movies, that is.

Yeah, I have a feeling both of our posts would've been dripping in said font.

And you're absolutely right. Let's talk about some REAL martial arts movies. I'm thinking...Beverly Hills Ninja.

3 Ninjas: Surfs Up?

Haha. Best ninja movie ever? Shinobi no Mono? Owl's Castle? No! It's Surf Ninjas! Hahaha. I used to love that movie as a kid.

That dude Keno from Ninja Turtles II was cool in Surf Ninjas.

Ernie Reyes Junior. Too bad he hasn't really done anything noteable other than Donatello's stuntwork in the first Ninja Turtles movie. His last movie, "Ultimate Fight" was a piece of ****, to put it bluntly, and putting his padre in it only made it stink worse than 9 pounds of rotting meat in the afternoon.

I watched Shaolin soccer the other day. It was...interesting.

I think it's hysterical, but unless you're familiar with Chow's previous work, you're not as apt to appreciate the humor (kind of like Takeshi Miike's films, except not the same kind of humor). A lot of is either in-jokes from previous films or Cantonese humor that doesn't translate unless you speak the language.

For those of you who are thinking of going to see Kung Fu Hustle, please do. It's magically delicious.

It did rule. :)

I love all the fight scenes were 20-40 year old martial arts stuntmen have to job to 12 year olds.

HAHAHAHa!!! Oh man, that movie kicked so much ass! "I went into a knife shop one day. I laid out $500 and asked if I could buy a knife. You know what the guy said to me: Money can't buy knives". Rob Schneider was just soo great in that movie. Oh, and Ernie Reyes Jr. kicks ass as well! Watch him in "The Rundown".

Let's not forget "The Rundown"....

I'm actually seeing the midnight screening for that movie. I loved Shaolin Soccer, and after watching that, I went to find some more movies by Stephen Chow. He's an awesome director.

Finally!!! You've mentioned Shaolin Soccer!! That movie was excellent and it was pretty hiliarous. Original version was so much better than crappy edited version.

Oh yeah. When I first saw it, I chose the original, because I don't like it when we have to cut down movies(like they did w/ Ong Bak).

Believe it or not, Reyes was doubled for several moves during that fight (what part of "butterfly twist" don't you understand, Ernie?), but I think that fight was pretty lame anyway. I'm not a big fan of fights that feature "trickbusting" predominately (I mean... it's not fighting!), so this really didn't do it for me.

Ong Bak was cut down in America? Damn, good thing I've got a Thai DVD rip of it. And a Chinese DVD version of Shaolin Soccer and Hero.
