    Quote from DjinnNtoniC: “Saw this and thought i would jump in on the fun :D. Heres one from me. youtube.com/watch?v=Pt4YWi25Mhk ” I was kinda diseased for a while, sorry about the delay (Value your health, folks! Hadn't been sick in years, so didn't remember how much it sucks). I'm better now, so better get back into it. I'm glad there isn't 20+ videos waiting for me here. I can do other things this week too. First of all, DjinnNtoniC, welcome! This is indeed fun. Ong Bak 2 was on my list natura…

    FIGHT: Zen against a dojo full of bad guys. MOVIE: Chocolate (2008), director Prachya Pinkaew I swear, my intention was to post one fight a week on Fridays. But I just CAN'T HELP MYSELF. I believe somebody mentioned diversity? Let's get some women on this train! If you love martial arts movies, do yourself a favor and watch this film. The premise is basically that an autistic girl can imitate anything she sees, and she learns to fight by watching martial arts movies. In this scene, she comes aga…

    Just two random bonus animated scenes (again, I was reminded of these while reading Goliathus' post). Very stylized (Gennady Tarkovsky), but I love these: youtube.com/watch?v=mj07qh51zPI youtube.com/watch?v=W19l3rt8HSI

    Quote from Goliathus: “(Have to double post because of the 10,000 characters limit) Now, for my entries: youtube.com/watch?v=0oFBlM_o8zc My favorite Jackie Chan's fight. Awesome display of techniques from both sides - Ken Lo's chain kicks are awesome and the drunken boxing here is the best I have seen on-screen - with good pacing and clear cuts. The only thing I don't like is the finishing. Also, one interesting fact is that Jackie's character went retard in the original un-cut version for drink…

    Quote from Sneydar: “And regarding the theme of this week of fighting: Are fights allowed that are crafted so poorly that they are comical? ” There is no theme. That was just my feeble attempt to be funny. Anyone can post any fight they want at any time. I would really appreciate some explanation why the poster likes the fight scene though. Quote from Goliathus: “- (Trivia)Tony Jaa grew up watching HK action films and thought those are "wireless" and the HK stars are just that good. So, he train…

    FIGHT: Final fight between Chan and Alan in some weird warehouse. MOVIE: Gorgeous (1999), director Vincent Kok This one is for Eraia. Some Jackie Chan goodness. Jackie is clearly not in his prime here anymore, and his opponent actually has more impressive moves, but that doesn't matter one bit. This is still a pretty epic fight, with some funny vintage Jackie Chan situations throughout. This movie is pretty atrocious though. youtube.com/watch?v=c6IucizzQD8 Setting/atmosphere 8 – I have no clue w…

    FIGHT: Turtles against The Foot Clan in a mall. MOVIE: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991), director Michael Pressman I am an unashamed fan of the first two TMNT movies. There is no third one. I want to forget the third one. It was a simpler time, just put dudes in a costume and make them fight. None of this CGI crap of today. These movies are a thousand times better than the new live action ones. It's kinda annoying that the opening credits are over the action here, b…

    Phew... finally got through replying to the fine people who have posted on this thread. My turn. I present to you, Fight of the Week: The Eraia Edition. Only comical fights allowed! FIGHT: Johnny and Charlie Firpo against random bad guys on a yacht. MOVIE: Odds and Evens (originally Pari e dispari [1978]), director Sergio Corbucci I have hazy memories of my dad watching a movie, where two dudes were beating the crap out of random people, and laughing his ass off. I later found out the name of th…

Another one off my list. Equilibrium/Cubic is one of my favorite scifi movies. Gun Kata is seriously one of the coolest ideas ever in a movie. I want an entire movie about that! Also, Tetragramm…

    Quote from Ossuary: “Long takes are a special kind of awesome. The original Oldboy corridor scene is definitely amazing. I know it's not a "real" long take, because they hide some cuts in there when people get knocked off camera, but the "corridor" fight from season 1 of Netflix's Daredevil is pretty spectacular, too. You can really FEEL his weariness as the fight drags on. I have a special affection for fights like that, where the exhaustion is an actual factor. youtube.com/watch?v=B66feInucFY …

    Quote from Sneydar: “A most likely controversial additon to this thread: youtube.com/watch?v=tsPDrhJhmDI It's spoiler territory and the fight starts at 1:13. But why? While I enjoy martial arts and love movie fights, more often than not they feel staged and artificial, which is cool, don't get me wrong, but they don't get a response out of me that goes beyond "uh, nice." - least most of the time. This one is different for me, because it's two people on the brink of collapse because of exhaustion…

    Quote from Vroengard: “youtube.com/watch?v=V2piDs9HMn4 ” This is a great fight. I have watched it many times. So many cool moves in there, like the blocking of an elbow strike by a friend. The music is awesome as well with the intense pumping. It is a bit too dark and sloppily edited though. Technical issues prevent a perfect ten for me. One other thing. Apparently the main baddie can't choke worth of shit, because if you really get the arm under the neck, an arterial choke takes like 5 - 7 seco…

    Quote from Blitzkind: “I would like to petition the commissioner to allow for an "entertainment" category. I would also like to submit the baseline for a perfect 10 in this category. youtube.com/watch?v=zQbnQBCTSiA ” Oh yeah, this. Holy shit, I had completely forgotten about this. Humor is highly subjective, of course, and I still expect a decent fight, even with all the shenanigans, which I don't get here. Too much sped-up moves again as well. Entertainment category is a good point though, and …

    Okay, better start going through these... Quote from Ossuary: “BTW, while I generally tend to enjoy realistic fights more than CGI / jumpcut fests, those types of fights have their merit as well. The restaurant fight in Rise of the Legend, for example, is an absolutely amazing and highly entertaining fight, specifically because of the way it's cut together. The slow mo, the CGI swooshes of air from the weapon swings, the POV shot at the end - it's silly and stupid, but in the best possible way. …

    Quote from Eraia: “I think I'm more of a fan of comic fights because I love prettymuch the entire Jackie Chan movie roster of fights. ” I hear ya. I love comical fights too, and it was always my intention to showcase those as well. I have some stuff right up your alley coming up. My problem is choosing what to post, as I have limited time. I would love to throw a dozen of these in here at a time, but the research, analyzing and finding a good clip takes too much time. I will definitely vary the …

    @Oss I actually watch and enjoy all kinds of fights. Even when people are floating or using fireballs. It's all good. A fight is a fight. I just have my preferences. And I love Kung Fu Hustle. The entire movie is incredible. I have rarely laughed as hard in a theater. It was also on my list for this thread. Now I need to change that. Don't worry, I could do this the rest of my life and not run out of fights.

    Holy hell! This thread is blowing up. I expected maybe one reply and complete apathy. I like this! I will reply to everything, but apparently this will take way more time than I thought, because I also want to watch all the videos when I have plenty of time. I'm on my lunch break from work now, so can't dive into this now. Oh boy, is it hard not to though. Quote from AxelDWater: “Hey! Nice to find another martial arts lover.

    Haha! Welcome to the party, Oss. I love Donnie Yen, but if you think this is a great movie fight, we simply have different tastes. Nothing wrong with that of course, as these things are highly and completely subjective. I can't stand this sped-up crap myself, and the editing is horrible. Flash cuts and a constantly moving, shaky camera. Cartoonish sound effects and needless nigh-comical slow-motion in the beginning. Everything is too hurried, and I can't savor the techniques at all. I have seen …
