    My life is both a comedy and a drama, so I watch action movies to escape.

    I'll mention some I don't think were mentioned yet:


    The Yakuza (1974) - great story, great iconic performances from Takakura Ken and Robert Mitchum (at his sardonic best) - one of my favorite movies

    [​IMG]

    The Mechanic (1972) - underrated Charles Bronson film

    [​IMG]



    Killer Elite (1975) Directed by "Bloody" Sam Peckinpah (too bad The Wild Bunch is 1969)

    [​IMG]


    Superman (1978) - comics geeks as well as any moviegoer saw this and believed Man can fly

    [​IMG]

    Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) - this along with Star Wars were huge for SF movies (science fiction)

    [​IMG]


    Off the top of my head and i don't recall seeing these mentioned from H'wood movies -- i didn't even start on HK movies lol

    1970's Hong Kong movies

    The Way of the Dragon (1972)

    This may be sacrilege, i think this is better than Enter the Dragon!

    [​IMG]


    Heroes of the East (1978) aka Shaolin vs Ninja aka Shaolin Challenges Ninja

    My most favorite Martial Arts movie - yes IMO even better than 36th Chamber of Shaolin aka Master Killer and Five Deadly Venoms - directed by the great Lau Kau Leung, no one dies in this, it was a big misunderstanding, showcased many many styles using the plot device of Chinese MA vs Japanese MA

    [​IMG]


    Invincible Shaolin (1978) aka Unbeatable Dragon - my most fave "5 venoms" movie

    Great training sequences featuring real CMA like WCK and Southern Praying Mantis - Lo Meng aka Lo Mang was a student of Chu Gar SPM - Lo Meng is better known as 'Toad'

    [​IMG]



    I guess these can/should be mentioned in the martial arts movies thread

    To touch on this, I work on a closed site, it's only accessible by a pass. There is a Starbucks tho, it's conveniently located at the white collar part of site. Sometimes I go there with my workmate and just want to punch every cunt in line in the face for being fucking idiots and designing shit that is bad.

    I'm gonna touch on a brief thing, over the past week I have wasted 10 hours of my life looking into a fault, my underling has too, 4 specialists have tried thier hand, and yesterday 2 super turbo smart engineers finally convinced me that I don't actually have a fault. It's working wrong but right and my spec is wrong but my drawing is right. Fun times
