    Hey Guys,
    Doesn't look like you're getting a lot of response here but I'm enjoying quite a few of the links. And they are inspirational and entertaining.

    Hi, mickey:
    I'm wondering if this thread might attract more participation if it was renamed, maybe to something like "Great Movie Fights!" or something like that. This is a fun thread.

    52- Shaolin Plot (Final Fight)- Chen Sing, Casanova Wong, James Tien, Sammo Hung, .... (Side note: Chen Sing was one of the few actors who threw a back thrust kick in choreography. His kicking ability, in my opinion, was greatly underestimated).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wgpd5hJQn2c


    53-Tiger in a Cage 2- One of the more important films for Donnie Yen Fans. It is this film that introduces Donnie's use of the dramatic with his fight scenes. In doing so he introduces aspects to characters that dialogue alone does not justify. He introduces us to the warrior, the killer, the hero, the heartless, the sentimental and so on. And he achieves this through the silences and through the bearing of the characters: not at all out of line with Peking Opera. But Donnie achieves this famously and it is beautiful.

    A new name for this thread, Jimbo? I don't know.

    The name "Kung Fu Espresso" came from an idea that never took root (much like this thread). In NYC there was once a store on 43rd Street between 8th and 9th avenues called "The 43rd Chamber." They sold kung fu movies almost exclusively. People went out of their way to provide them with stuff from their personal collections so they could sell to other collectors and patrons, as well as keep them in business. It had a good run until people started to get greedy. Well, there was always a group of people that was there almost all of the time, taking up space (it was a very small store). I suggested the idea of having a coffee shop that would show kung fu movies continuously. It would have premieres and retrospectives. This was before Starbucks hit the city. The guys did not have the heart to take the pearl I gave them and run with it. This thread is somewhat representative of what it could have been like had they listened.

    Cool, mickey. I was not aware of the meaning this thread's title has for you. That sounds to me like you had a very cool idea.


    54 - Drunken Tai Chi (Donnie Yen vs. Wong Tao & Yuen Hsin-Yi)


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW6uI...eature=related


    Donnie's first movie. Oddly enough, there's seems to be a lot of people who think of Donnie as a "new-school" star, when in reality he's a veteran old-schooler who's been making movies for nearly 30 years (Drunken Tai Chi dates from approximately 1983).

    Welcome, Palmstriker.

    You forgot to number your entry.

    Jimbo,

    You are most welcome to use my idea. Just break me off a chunk every now and then. Considering the spike in views since I posted that idea, somebody is really thinking about it.

    A former colleague of mine, Heidi Runyan, was a fencing champion, and she was one of the extras in By The Sword, in the fencing academy scenes. Though I wasn't able to identify her in any of those shots.

    65 - Billy Jack (Tom Laughlin, actually doubled by Bong Soo Han)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRnra0KRnDk


    66 - Marlowe (James Garner vs. Bruce Lee...well, not technically a "fight," but worth noting, nonetheless)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxfPxZhhkqc


    67 - Yellow-Faced Tiger, a.k.a., Slaughter in San Francisco (Wong Tao vs Chuck Norris...not a great fight, but another curiosity piece; Wong Tao's first movie, and Norris's acting is more expressive here than in most of his own movies, even though the fight itself doesn't 'flow' very well. This movie was one of those 'guilty pleasures,' so awful it's fun to watch).
