Default The Martial Arts Movie Thread

What's good with martial Arts movies right now? Or just let's talk about any martial arts movies you wanna talk about?

After the recent talk I went and rewatched Kiss of the Dragon and it's way dumber and ****tier than I remember. The good fight scenes aren't as good and the plot is super dumb like James Bond for idiots but the captain save a ho bull**** is just as charming so I still liked it and the end still slaps.

Just fyi that Jet Li movie I recc'd is Fist of Legend, not Fist of Fury. It's a remake of Fist of Fury by Bruce Lee. You should also watch Fist of Fury.

I have a huge collection of the Shaw Brothers Studio stuff and also a bunch of stuff from the more obscure Taiwanese Studios.

I've seen all the classics and many of the more rare films. My main interest is from the mid 60's through the early 80's. I don't collect anything beyond those years.

I'm gonna go by favorite actors/actresses instead of films cuz favorite films would take forever haha. There's several hundred of those!

Some favorite actors:

Ti Lung
David Chiang
Chang Yi
Chen Kuan Tai
Johnny Wang Yu
Lo Lieh
Yueh Hua
Tien Peng

Some actresses:

Lily Ho
Li Ching
Polly Kuan
Judy Lee
Cheng Pei Pei
Shi Szu
Doris Lung
Chin Ping
