100 Great Kung Fu Movies – Part 3 (59-40)

When it comes to making features like this one, i love the idea of coming up with my own personal “100 Great Kung Fu Movies” of all time. It is tough choosing just 100 because you know there are many more great Kung Fu movies that are not on the list.

I have decided that to make the list, a movie must have a few hand to hand moments during fight scenes in the movies chosen. If for example its mainly sword play with one fight scene hand to hand it won’t make the list. Its old school “style” Kung Fu movies, not modern day settings.

I understand everyone will have their own personal favorites and some may not agree with my list and that’s fine because it’s nice to have different opinions on this genre which keeps it fresh and alive when having good debates.

Anyway, thank you

Here's the Movie That Gave Us Quentin Tarantino's Career

Read More: 5 Must-See Asian Films From the New York Asian Film Festival In 1987, up-and-coming Hong Kong filmmaker Ringo Lam directed a squalid crime film rife with violence and nebulous morality. "City on Fire," which is screening as part of the New York Asian Film Festival's special tribute to Lam, stars Chow Yun-fat and Danny Lee as an undercover cop and murderous thief who get chummy during the planning, execution, and fallout of a botched heist during which Chow kills an innocent person. In the end, Chow tells Lee the truth, and Lee shoots Chow in the head. (Moral of the story: don't be honest.) Two years later, John Woo released "The Killer," a milestone of Hong Kong cinema that reinvented action movies and introduced the world to a new way of rendering violence — with almost loving intimacy, without dulling the impact. Woo became an international sensation, Lam helmed a Jean-Claude Van Damme film that bombed,

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1987

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...

Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.

What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction

Top 10 “One Last Job” Scenes

With November Man out, excitement for Pierce Bosnan’s return to spying is at an all-time high for many James Bond fans. November Man, based on the seventh installment of Bill Granger’s book series called There Are No Spies, is about ex- CIA agent Peter Devereaux (Pierce Bosnan). While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives. From a retiree’s last gig, to the bad-boy-gone-good-and-then-bad-again mission, to the revenge premise, mythology of the ex-professional can surely delight and excite us to champion our heroes for one last fight. Here are scenes from ten incredible “one last job” films,

10 Films Titles That Had Nothing To Do With The Plot

When it comes to producing a movie, it goes without saying that the title is one of the most important pieces of the project. It is what sells the film feature, the name that it will be forever remembered with. It is the buzzword that can make said project a household name or even an iconic saying.

With that bearing on its shoulders, a movie title also has to capture the essence of the movie in one single word or string of words. It’s even tighter than a logline or a quick plot summary. It doesn’t have to say everything about the movie. Not at all. A good title should capture the spirit of the movie, while giving potential audience members taste of the main attraction and enticing them for more. Whether it is the name of the protagonist or an all encompassing phrase that gives a general idea of the movie,

‘Battle Wizard’ is like magic: it’s fun though nonsensical

Battle Wizard

Written by Ni Kuang

Directed by Pao Hsueh-Li

Hong Kong, 1977

Articulating one’s thoughts and emotional response to a film can be an unexpectedly challenging task. If a movie’s thematic and emotional texture is deeply layered, ambiguous or produces conflicting reactions then the redacting process poses a problem. Other instances present an entirely different obstacle insofar as the reviewer is wrestling with why they responded positively or negatively. Such is the predicament with this week’s movie, Battle Wizard from 1977.

To summarize the plot of Battle Wizard would be a disservice to the picture’s cacophony of sounds, epileptic barrage of sights and ludicrous misadventures the cardboard cutout characters find themselves mixed up in. There are so many twists and turns it becomes genuinely difficult to guess what might happen next, less so thanks to intricate and well devised screenwriting and more because of the nonsensical sequence of events in the story,

The Dark Knight, 2008

As a land of shiny steel and glass, Hong Kong has recently become catnip for Hollywood productions looking for an extra dimension to their power buildings. In 2008, the Batman film The Dark Knight came to Hk to film a scene in which the caped crusader captures mob accountant Lau. The building in question is Two International Financial Centre, over 400m tall and at the time the tallest in the city (it has since been overtaken by the International Commerce Centre in Kowloon).
