    Default Kung Fu Movies.

    How many DYRers are fans of the classic 70s & 80s kung fu films ? a.k.a. Chop Socky flicks.
    Obviously the Bruce Lee classics and early Jackie Chan movies,
    But also the movies of Samo Hung, Leung Kar Lan, Gordon Liu, Hwang Jang Lee, Ti Lung, The Yuen clan, Alexander Fu Sheng, Bolo Yeung, John Liu, The Venoms and all the amazing Shaw Brothers films from directors like Lau Kar Leung & Chang Cheh.
    Plus other studios such as Golden Harvest.
    Personally I can't get enough of 'em.
    Anyone with me on this ?

    have you ever heard of sonny chiba mate.
    he has done loads of martial arts kung fu films.
    he starred in a series of films 4 films with the following names.


    Enter the streetfigter.
    return of the streetfighter
    sister streetfighter
    streetfighters last revenge.





    sonny chiba was a Pivotal figure in the 1970s explosion of martial arts cinema as lethal "fists for hire" trouble shooter, Takuma (Terry) Tsurugi, starring in the phenomenally popular and ultra violent "The Street Fighter" series of action films. Sonny Chiba wasn't a graceful, fluid fighter like bruce lee but rather he was a ferocious machine that mowed down his opponents with his fists and feet, always with a menacing grimace on his face!

    Chiba was born Sadao Maeda in Fukuoka, Japan in 1939 and shared a house along with four other siblings to a father who was a military test pilot. As a youth, he was keen on both theatre and gymnastics, and was a talented enough athlete to score a position in the Japanese Olympic Team, until a chronic back injury finished his gymnastic aspirations. However, whilst at university he took a strong interest in karate under the guidance of the legendary "Mas Oyama", and soon earned his first black belt. However, his life took another turn, when in 1960 he was discovered during a talent search by Toei Studios, and he soon began his screen career under the name of "Shinichi Chiba", appearing as "Space Chief" in _Uchu Kaisoku-ken (1961)_ (aka "Invasion of the Neptune Men). Over the next decade, Chiba busied himself with many appearances in Japanese crime thrillers and steadily built a reputation for playing hard men of few words and direct actions.


    he has starred in ovwer 1 hundred and 40 films up to the present day.

    check him out sonny chiba.

    oh hell yeah, can't get enough of old school martial arts movies, especially Jackie Chan's old stuff, Police Story (the first one) blew my mind.

    can't beat a bit of Bruce Lee either, but any martial arts films from that era are great though

    everytime i watch it i just feel a surge of adrenaline when Jackie starts to run after the double decker bus and the awesome theme song kicks in, love it.

    then the fight in the shopping mall at the end with people going through countless panes of glass is just simply amazing.

    You simply wont get better than this. It's like someone crossed Father Ted, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and the worst action films you've ever seen. NSFW, has language, partial nudity and obviously violence. If you could call it that.

    Kung Fu series starring the late David Carradine.

    Bruce Lee films - Enter The Dragon, Game of Death and Fist of Fury (he made these strange noises as he attacked the enemy)
