Have you guys seen Tom Yung Goong?
It is the second movie Tony Jaa (Ong Bak) made, and there is this mindblowing, vicious sequence at the end. For context, all of the bad guys killed Tony's elephant. Dude loves elephants.


Yeah. I love this movie and that bone breaking and muscle cutting stuff in this video smile.gif

Cool.. I will watch this clip ! smile.gif I don't know if any of you guys have heard of a film called 'Ip Man' ? It's based on the real life Ip Man, who was a well known Kung Fu Master, he taught Bruce Lee among others. It was on TV last night and I recorded it so will watch it at a later time. It's supposed to be really good smile.gif

My friends recommended me Ip Man. They liked it very much. I'm thinking about watching it too.

Yeh, I really liked Ip Man. Although I was a little bummed out to hear in real life he was apparently an opium addict.
I actually got Ip Man 2 the other day, which deals with him moving to Hong Kong and teaching one Mr Bruce Lee (among others). I will let you guys know how it is when I watch it smile.gif

My mother is Hong Kong Chinese so I saw a lot of Cantonese martial arts films when I was younger. Some of my favourites were those that fused martial arts with horror like Mr Vampire. Here's another good one, Ghost Story though there's no martial arts in this clip.

Just watched Ip Man.. the fight scenes are some of the best I've seen (in my opinion of course) and they're really inspiring.. makes you want to be as butt kicking as he is ! biggrin.gif

Matrix is a classic, and it's one of those films that you watch many times and every time you find more about it. Specially when you look at it from the spiritual point of view. But I'll that to you for when you watch it.

The Karate Kid. The phrase, "Wax on, wax off" was born from this movie. This is the conclusion of the movie. So epic. We watched the movie from Netflix.

Classic!

I don't know if there are any UFC or mixed martial arts fans here, but a guy called Lyoto Machida won a fight recently using the crane kick smile.gif
It was vs Randy Couture if you're interested.

I'm glad you like Ip man too Ben. You should definitely check out the first Matrix movie. It is a little dated now, but still cool. Kung fu hustle and Shaolin soccer are great too. All Stephen Chow movies I've seen are cool actually.

I know Zen watches MMA so he may have seen it. I seen some footage of Steven Seagal ofering 'advice' to Machida based around performing a front kick to Couture when he charged at him.. I think this basic tactic would be something Machida was well aware of but I think it was more of a publicity stunt than anything. But I didn't know that the butterfly kick made an appearance ! laugh.gif

Yeah I will.. I'm quite lucky because I can approach the Matrix trilogy with fresh eyes but without having to wait until the next part comes out in the cinema !

Yea, Love MMA. It's funny that this is mentioned. There are various aspects of different martial arts still to be incorporated in this game. Every art has somethin to offer and a whole lot of bullshit too. That front kick was great. I'm sure a lot of fighters will start training that.

I agree the steven segal thing has to be a stunt. But there are videos of him showing Anderson SIlva the same kick and some other crazy moves. Silva knocked out Belfort with the same sortta kick. I'm sure these guys were big steven seagal fans while growing up and are just star struck at the chance of spending time with their childhood idol. But Segal is a legitimate Aikido grandmaster. But Hollywood has injected somethin into him that I dont like.

What I do like is that this game continues to evolve and nothing is certain in any fight smile.gif
