    Enter the Dragon enters the Library of Congress

    Check it out. There are now 400 titles and what an unusual collection. EtD is the first MA film I could see, but I haven't seen all of those films, so maybe one got by me. Chan is Missing was a prior film with an asian lead, but I think that's the only one... if anyone else sees other priors on the list, I'd be interested in knowing. I only skimmed it quickly.

    I think your right that ETD is the first MA flick on that list, of course I dont know the names of all the Chuck Norris flix but I dont think hes on there, luckily, Bruce made it first. Jet or Jackie will be next. Maybe in the same year.

    Chuck Norris will make the next cut with his classic film "Breaker, Breaker."

    Enter the Dragon

    I just saw an awesome film called "Enter the Dragon". It stars Bruce Lee who was an actor in 1970s. It is about a man on an island and loads of WICKED fights. Bruce Lee practises a martial art called Gung Fu (different to Kung Fu btw) and wastes loads of people.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has seen it or any other Bruce Lee films and could reccomend me to watch more films.

    I'm thinking of making some martial arts films myself actually with my mates Andy and Steve so if you have any advice that would be good.

    I think he is serious. The thing is he isn't out of double digits age wise.

    double digits, so you're into triple digits are you? 100 years old on kung fu forum? Impressive.

    I actually know someone aged 200 so he's better than you.

    So just to see just how much you really know, exactly what is "Gung Fu" and how does it differ from "Kung Fu?"

    And please do not say the Gung Fu derives from Judo!

    I was not allowed to see "Enter the Dragon" when it first came out. My parents said there is too much violence with glasses and metal hook hand.

    Too much blood.

    OOPS.

    I was allowed to see Kung Fu. But it was banned in Taiwan.

    Only after sometime, did I get to see the series.

    A lot of talks and memory flashbacks, it was in the Shaolin temple and then the cowboy town in the west. Walking in the desert under the bright sun.

    And fighting is short and gone. So my brothers and I waited for a long time for the fight scenes. Sometime, I had to go to the bathroom. My brothers would yell and com'on you miss the fight.

    A great sigh.

    I'm curious spj, do you remember why it was banned?

    Is it because a squinting white guy just doesn't cop it as a chinese?
    Kung Fu is good for you.
