My definition of a "superhero" and/or a "Masked Vigilante" is a being that fights evil for the sake of the betterment of mankind; to protect the weak from the wicked; to rid the streets of scum & filth. All the while doing it in a something like a cape, a mask, an armored suit, or anything that hides his or her identity.

"Everybody was Kung-Fu fighting, Those cats were fast as lightning, In fact it was a little bit frightening, But they did it with expert timing..."

In a genre that can be as horrendous as it is pure genius no one can deny that Martial Arts Action Cinema has influenced some of the finest directors of the past 30 years. This is the definitive list of the Top 250 Greatest Martial Arts Movies from The East, to West, And Back Again....

Movies that fall under my "Martial Arts" category and will be considered and included here are as follows: Hand to Hand Combat, (Kung Fu, Hapkido, Filipino Kali, Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai, Karate, Pankration, MMA, Etc...) Samurai, Ninjas, and Anything to do with Weapon Use & Swordplay.

These are My picks of Actors & Actresses (Dead Or Alive) who should play the Live Action Incarnations of the Justice League, the Injustice League & the many love interests aswell as supporting cast of characters in a hypothetical Justice League series of Films...

YES, im well aware both Snyder & Nolan have both gone on record as stating their films are stand alone projects restricted to their own individual universes, but that doesn't necessarily mean a fan cant dream, right?

You see, Bale & Cavill will be this generations Man of Steel & Dark Knight Detective, so ideally it would make sense for them to reprise their roles in a team up flick such as a Justice League Movie, because lets face it, even though were all getting an avengers movie, We all really want to see a JUSTICE LEAGUE film done right. And i can honestly say, i can see that happening, IF and thats a big fat "If" the studios can hire the Right People. Get a GOOD solid storyline, an incredibly hard working and passionate director and cast aswell as crew and taa daa, youve got your next big multi billion dollar cash cow movie series. Especially since Now that Harry Potter has finished.

So yeah WB, Wake the *beep* up! youve been sitting on a goldmine which is the DC Comics stable of characters and i for one am sick of you ignoring this. Wise Up, and give the fan what weve been waiting on for years.

Oh and if youre curious who i would cast for their Television counterparts, check this out:

And it shall be called: "Metropolis."

This will probably NEVER happen and yes, i do realize some of these actors/actresses have appeared on smallville already in different characters, but like alot of the things smallville has done, they were wrong for the role. If i were in charge of the show, i would have stuck closer to Supes's actual mythos, and not royally screw up the timeline, but thats just me. And whats done is done right?

...So hypothetically speaking, this is how i would re imagine a spinoff series of Smallville. Its take place right after the finale, with Welling as the fully fullfilled Man of Steel in all his cape and spandex glory. Using most of the actors from the show who i enjoyed in their roles aswell as fresh new faces i can believe realistically speaking, IF there ever would be a spin-off show that would fit in with the already established cast of young B & C - List actors and actresses... Mostly Actors from other CW shows, since the CW network LOVES to recycle their talents.

Oh and for the record, although i prefer guys like Routh, Reeves, & Cavill as Superman, I have no problem with Welling as the Man of Steel, just NOT for any movie incarnation. Hes the Best Clark Kent on Television and should stay that way.

Oh and if youre curious who i would cast for their Theatrical counterparts, check this out:

When it comes to movies and TV specials, Thanksgiving is like Cinderella. Neglected by her stepsisters Halloween and Christmas, both of which get uglier and uglier each year with commercialization. Every horror movie ever made is perfect for watching on Halloween and god knows there seems to be no end to production of Christmas-related movies and TV shows.

This is my attempt at listing some of the Best Thanksgiving films and Tv specials that i could think of.

These are actually my top 100 Halloween/Horror themed films, specials, and television shows to view around the month of October. Happy Hauntings fellow ghouls.

I LOVE Asian Cinema. Films from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan as well as a few South East Asian features. However, for the past few years Ive been noticing a trend... a lot of the truly GREAT, Original films Asian or Non Asian alike have been coming out of SOUTH Korea. It seems they have been going through a "film renaissance" in the past few years and have been releasing great film after great film after another.

Today their film industry reminds me of how Hollywood used to be, from way back in the 70's BEFORE they started remaking EVERYTHING and adapting every comic book and video game there is (and doing a horrible job mind you), back when the movies that came out were original and superbly directed.

Ive compiled a list of some of the Best South Korean films Ive seen so far. And if you're anything like me, burnt out on crappy Superhero films (not counting the Nolan Batman Trilogy of course.), Pointless Horror Sequels and more mindless Hollywood turds, Feel free to give this list a look through and provide a few suggestions if i missed any notable ones... im always upen to "discover" more gems.

***For those of you asking were you can "obtain" some of the more hard to find films on this list, you can try this:

http://myasiancinema.com/

They've got ALOT of films and TV shows to choose from.***

P.S. - Im Working on a companion "Best Of," lists for Hong Kong/Chinese & Japanese Cinema... Which will take considerably longer to make due to my constant procrastination as well as having to cover over a century of great cinema suppressed & compiled to a list of only 200 titles. :-\

In a genre dominated by testosterone, these ladies have proven to hold their own. And are also extremely just as "Bad Ass" as their male peers.

I recently re-watched the two Live Action Mortal Kombat adaptations from the 90's and it got me thinking. If and WHEN Hollywood decides to remake this film franchise, and you know they will, who should the new cast and crew be? Well Here are my picks:

PS And just to clarify why there are about +30 people on here, its because im sure whatever WB is planning for the reboot, its going to be a series or TRILOGY of films. That way they can make more $$$ and milk the franchise dry.

Saturday Night Live (abbreviated as SNL) is a live American late-night television sketch comedy and variety show developed by Lorne Michaels and Dick Ebersol.

"Heav'n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn'd,
Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn'd."

After recently viewing "Hanna" and "Sucker Punch" i felt the sudden urge to share some of my favorite films that feature some of the most ass kicking femme fatales in Cinema History. What they lack in testosterone, they more than make up with martial arts skills, guns, swords, and attitude.

Think of this list as "The Best Of, Ass-kicking Women in Film." OR The Alternative "Best Of, 'Girl Power' Movies." And i say "Alternative Girl Power", because my definition of "Girl Power" isnt stuff like Erin Brockovich or the Devil Wears Prada, or the Princess Diaries type, my definition involves highly skilled, highly attractive female assassins, Kung Fu Masters, & Outlaws who specialize in Ass Kicking, Revenge, and Torture.... but thats just me. That type of stuff I like to watch. Girl Power!

- I kept it to one or two movie per actress, (With Michelle Yeoh being the only exception due to her awesomness.) many have more than one ass kicking roles, oh and i kept it in the realm of LIVE ACTION, if i were to include animated ass kicking babes, it would be ALOT longer and harder to list.) Now here are the Femme Fatales & the film you should see them in:

When it comes to Organized Crime & the Gangster Genre as a whole, Asian Gangster films are almost always ignored. When people think of "Gangster movies" they often think of the Godfather, Goodfellas, or Scarface.

Well if you're tired of seeing the same old, same old, look East and check out these fine Gangster Flicks coming from Japan, Hong Kong, & Even South Korea.

In the late 80's/early 90's during the height of the Gangsta Rap Movement led by the likes of N.W.A., Ice-T, & Tupac Shakur, a new genre of black/Hispanic film sprang up, referred to as hood movies. Basically, these films are all about the reality of growing up in the ghetto.These tales are often compelling, sometimes comical, and usually end up tragically.

This is IMO the best this particular sub-genre of the Organized Crime/Gangster Genre has to offer.

Witchcraft, in historical, anthropological, religious, and mythological contexts, is the alleged use of supernatural or magical powers.
 
a list of 70 titles
QUALITY Werewolf movies are hard to come-by, They arent as popular as Vampires or Zombies, therefore they arent made as much as the previously mentioned two. And when they are made, it isnt quite up to the standards quality wise such as the Vampires with Let the Right one In, Thirst & Zombies have gems like 28 Days Later & Shaun of the Dead, among numerous others, while us Lycanthrope fans only have the classics and a remake of the Wolfman to look for.

I for one am still waiting for a truly great Werewolf Film for this generation of movie monster fanatics. (And Please NO Fluffy New Moon *beep* either.)

Now while there is absolutely no argument that Hong Kong rules the Action/Martial Arts Genre, The West has also produced some of their own gems as well. Taking cues and inspiration from the East, here are my favorite martial arts films from the West.

Oh and when i say "American Martial Arts Movies." I really mean Marital arts films NOT made by Hong Kong, or any other country from Asia, i mean from America & Europe. They are films made by major American or European Studios starring western and sometimes even eastern actors and actresses.

Oh and im NOT including Boxing films on this list, they deserve a list of their own.

I grew up in the 90's, so even though many of these films & TV shows are complete turds, and yes, ill admit some are, i hold them close to my heart for strictly NOSTALGIC reasons. Whenever i see or hear about these titles they bring me back to a much simpler time, that's the beauty of Cinema.

NOTE: These arent ranked in any particular order, i listed them as they came to mind. (Oh and im NOT including Horror movies, i just dont feel like including them for some reason.)

Before Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, & Golden Harvest made martial arts masterpieces, then proceeded to conquer the west, The Shaw Bros. Studios dominated the Martial Arts Cinema World. Here are some of my favorites from their vast array of Martial Arts Movies.

Besides Martial Arts & Gangster Films, the Spaghetti Western genre is an all time favorite of mine, i know its seems odd, but i prefer these to the ones made in America. Yah the Italians do their genre better than the Americans. Then again the Americans make better Mafia movies than the Italians. The World is an odd place. lulz

Jackie Chan has had a long and prosperous career, he is one of the greatest martial arts ACTION stars & Physical Comedian of all-time (only 2nd to the legendary Bruce Lee in the Martial Arts action star dept.), he is one of the most recognizable names and faces in the world and having appeared in +100 films has had dozens of classics throughout the years, this list is my attempt at ranking his films from his best to worst.

It should be painstakingly obvious by now that i am a massive Bruce Lee Fan, Here is My Lee Siu-Lung (Bruce Lee) Collection. (NOT counting his books of course... Just his films and the many Documentaries & Biopics that's worth a view IMO.)

*NOTE - its listed in chronological order from the latest release to the earliest one i currently have in possession until # 27 onwards, were it shifts into Bruce Lee related upcoming films and my fav. Brandon & Shannon Lee movies.
