When Rumble in the Bronx came to the states- I saw it in the theaters like 37 times- no joke. I took a bus downtown and watched it from morning to the very last show- didn’t leave knew it word for word. Jackie is incredible and the stunts he pulled of in this movie were mind boggling.
PS. I forgot about On Bak muay thai warrior (sorry)
9. Comet Sword Butterfly
I got this in the 90’s in the Bronx and I didn’t even care that they spoke no English at all. this one blew me away. They did some amazing stuff in this Movie.
GO Donnie Yen!
8. 5 Fingers of Death
gruesomely awesome. This first eye snatch I ever saw, I freaked out when I was a kid.
7. Bells of Death
Classic! This one has got that badass western movie feel to it. Plus the dude throws a video gameish projectile leaf attack “out of the blue”.
6. Tai Chi Master
There are so many great Jet Li films but the fight scenes in this one make it the best.
ps. How did Michelle Yeoh get on my list like 20 times more than any one else??? man... she is one of the best.
5. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
4. Shaolin Prince
This is Classic Style Kung Fu Movie stuff right here! It has it all! and more! a definite must see- I feel like this was the biggest (production wise) Kung Fu movie ever. oh, and you see that little image at the bottom? yeah these monks really form Voltron, just like that first boss on Strider- human centipede.
3. (TIE)Chinese Super Ninjas + The Heroic Ones
The Heroic Ones… wow! one scene a dude is trying to save his king from enemy territory, so he sneaks into their castle and gets the kings and ends up fighting his way back to his camp and this fight lasts one whole day!!! He kills like 624 people it’s like J. Brookinz favorite game Dynasty Warriors (sike) more like mine…
Chinese Super Ninjas like many other great Shaw Brothers movies striped the basic formula of I must take revenge but first I must “Learn how to fight” completely away- which I love! These dudes just go to war!
2. Shogun Assassin
This movie (unlike many other films like it) was directed beautifully, the imagery and the minimal use of effects make this one stand out in a league of its own. ps. they made more than one of these films and they are all good- check’em out. ps. I know this is not really a kung fu movie.
1. Five Deadly Venoms
This is NUMBER 1 for so many reasons: Cast, Set, Fight Scenes, etc. but especially the Plot. This is not your average you killed my master and I want revenge movie at all. The story will keep even the most anti kung fu movie watched locked in, a mad dash to find a lost family treasure, a corrupt governmental court system, a city of hidden heroes and villains, and a "who done it" type murder mystery. ps. J. Brookinz and I got a chance to see it at the theater one year hopefully that theater will do that again.
Gordon Liu had to be on the list! And, this is the film to see. My thoughts are he was typecast in this mild-Monk has to get mad way to often. I would have liked to seen him play different roles, like he did later in Kill Bill (Gordon Liu played to characters in those movies unlike any characters he had ever played before)

About the mix:
If you say you understand Ali Disco B that means you don't understand Ali Disco B. Multipraktik Recordings is really proud to present this monstrous one hour long mash-up of recent music history through the eyes, ears and brain of the endlessly talented producer/DJ Ali Disco B. If we would try to describe this mix in detail, it would take us a small printed 100 page long manual along with photos and instructions. Even the tracklist doesn't include all the material used in the mix.
42 songs ranging from Ali Disco B originals, cult club songs, classic rock monsters to some surprising samples mixed, blended and destroyed in the finest, top notch spirit of the mash-up age. A true gem full of humorous and memorable moments.
You should also check out Ali Disco B's more tougher sounding side-project TERs and their killer EP "Rathbone-Maybe Notch", released on Multipraktik Recordings in June.

The hype surrounding this game is CRAZY! I mean, people still play the first Modern Warfare to this day (like it's the ONLY FPS in the world)Here's a first look at what made the first game even worth playing---the Multiplayer!!! I see custom kill streak bonuses. So instead of just getting radar after 3 kills you can get an air strike...hmmmm...I can't wait to see that in action. This looks like it's going to give Killzone 2 multiplayer a run for it's money. I can't wait to get this game. You'd better get this game when it comes out BTAM, ROCCO, and GREY!!!!
I just found out about this group from a friend. I went to their MySpace and was amazed. They're jamming pretty hard. And they are produced by Omar Rodriguez Lopez (At the Drive In, The Mars Volta) so they have to be good! The show is Aug. 4 at the Vollrath (118 E. Palmer St. Indy,In 46225) Be there! Show starts at 8:00PM.

"Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. The official trailer can be seen above, recently premiering at the San Diego Comic Con. With Daft Punk creating the sound track for this movie, TRON Legacy will be a movie not to miss out on."
Starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wild, Bruce Boxleitner. Directed by Joseph Kosinski.

Unlike most other vinyl figures, the Kid Dragon is made up of 3 pieces creating the illusion of the dragon floating through the clouds. Manufactured by The Loyal Subjects, the 10” tall figure has vibrant gradient blends and comes housed in a double-sided window box with a scenic insert card. Jonathan Cathey, founder of The Loyal Subjects states,
Honestly, working in this industry for almost 10 years now as a designer, creator and MFG, the Kid Dragon has to be one of the more innovative, captivating, alluring and eloquent designs that I have come across in the world of collectibles and artist series collectibles. Truly a remarkable concept and design by Sam Flores. This will definitely be a classic.
Limited to 200 units, the Kid Dragon Upper Playground color way is slated to release in late September but is available for presale beginning Wednesday, July 22nd, on the Upper Playground web store.
