I happen to like old kung fu films the worse the better. Everything from the Master of the Flying Guillotine to Elton Chong. The worse, the better. I have seen a lot of Elton Chong's films Fist of the Golden Monkey, Deadly Shaolin Kung Fu, Gravedigger King Fu, and Shaolin Drunk Monkey. These films are so awful that they are almost good.

Any old school recommendations.

I've always meant to watch more bad kung-fu movies... but I can't help you here.

Why the movie threads all of a sudden? We just need an über-colossal, gi-normous cinematographic smackdown of a super-thread!

Wow, no interest. Well how about some decent titles by Chang Cheh of the Shaw Brothers Studio like Five Deadly Venoms, The One Armed Swordsman, or Eight Diagram Pole Fighter.

Well, of course you have the Bruce Lee movies. Then there are the Lee knock-offs (find an actor that looks like him--> you fill in the blanks). Especially the second set are great. I think Fists of Fury is wonderful.

Did they ever find out what Bruce Lee's cause of death was?

Officially, swelling of the brain, possibly related to an allergic reaction to a painkiller.

I've seen Enter the Dragon, it was kind of comical.

Has anyone else seen Ong Bak? It's got an alrite storyline, but it's a cheap Thai movie that made quite a bit of money, I think because of the main character in the movie actually being able to sideflip through 2 panels of glass two feet wide.

Ong Bak was good from the standpoint he did all his own stunts and showed what the human body is capable of.

Ong Bak might be fun. I think I'm going to try Kung Fu Hustle by the same person who did Shaolin Soccer.

How about a bad American parody of kung fu movies like Big Showdown in Little China? Although I do like the Bruce Lee movies, I've forgotten the titles of all the late night movies I watched in college.

I saw two films recently both kung fu comedies both are good light entertainment Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer, both are worth a good laugh. Shaolin Soccer was the highest grossing domestic film in Hong Kong history.

Kung Fu Hustle was great. I also like Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. It's insane.

Just finished seeing Kill Bill 1 and Kill Bill 2. How incredible awful, stupid, and highly entertaining with ridiculous implausible super bloody super sexy fights. Worth seeing for the ridiculous factor, not to mention Uma Thurman the bomb in action sexy foolishness.
