    Kung Fu Flicks by Style

    Hi! First time posting here. Been practicing Kung Fu for a while now, also a big fan of Shaw Brothers and other old-school kung fu flicks. I was wondering if we could start some kind of reference list of Kung Fu flicks organized by the styles they feature. Could be kinda interesting, especially in regards to some of the rarer ones. Any interest?

    Hi. Does even a brief appearance of a style in a movie warrant mention? Or does it have to be a main feature in a movie?

    For this post, I'm going to assume that the style at least appears in the movie. If the style is important to the film, I'll put a * next to it.

    Choy Lee Fut

    Along Comes the Tiger (1977)
    Choi Lee Fat Kung Fu (1979)*
    Drunken Master II (1994)*
    Duel of the 7 Tigers 1979)*
    Knockabout (1979)
    New Shaolin Boxers (1976)*
    Tiger Over Wall (1979)
    The Young Master (1979)* (Jackie and Wei Pai's characters' kung fu school is a CLF school)

    Hung Kuen/Hung Gar This will be next to impossible, as HK was THE single-most featured style in old-school KF films. So I'll just list some of them. Even after having watched KF films for over the last 40 years, trying to think of and list all of the movies that HK has appeared in (and in alphabetical order) would be far too monumental a task for me. So I'm only listing some of the movies, off the top of my head, in which HK plays an important role in the movie.

    Challenge of the Masters (1976)*
    Disciples of Shaolin (1975)*
    Disciples of the 36th Chamber (1984)*
    The Drug Addict (1974)*
    Drunken Master (1978)*
    Duel of the 7 Tigers (1979)*
    Executioner from Shaolin (1977)*
    Fist of the White Lotus (a.k.a., Clan of the White Lotus, 1979)*
    Fearless Duo (1979)*
    Five Shaolin Masters (1974)*
    He Has Nothing But Kung Fu (1977)*
    The Heroes (1979; a.k.a., The Unforgiven of Shaolin)*
    Heroes Two (1973)*
    The Lady is the Boss (1983)*
    The Magnificent Butcher (1979)*
    Martial Club (1981)*
    Men from the Monastery (1974)*
    My Young Auntie (1981)*
    Return to the 36th Chamber (1980)*
    Secret Rivals (1976)*
    Secret Rivals II (1977)*
    Shaolin Avengers (1976)*
    Shaolin Martial Arts (1974)*
    Shaolin Temple (a.k.a., Death Chamber, 1976)*
    The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978)*
    Tiger and Crane Fists (1976)*

    Monkey style Here are some additions to your list above:

    Five Superfighters (1979)* (Note: This is sometimes listed as a 1978 production)
    Knockabout (1979)*
    The Loot (1979)*
    Monkey Kung Fu (a.k.a., Stroke of Death, 1979)*
    Two Champions of Shaolin (1979)*

    I have been watching kung fu movies lately on You tube, on my smart TV. A ton of movies from shaw brothers to new releases. Most are dubbed in English, some are not your mileage may vary.

    Yesterday, i watched Joe Rogan, and crew trying to get Eddie Bravo to understand the world is not flat as he believes......
