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
The Mechanic (1972) - underrated Charles Bronson film
Killer Elite (1975) Directed by "Bloody" Sam Peckinpah (too bad The Wild Bunch is 1969)
Superman (1978) - comics geeks as well as any moviegoer saw this and believed Man can fly
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) - this along with Star Wars were huge for SF movies (science fiction)
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
Very nice list. Glad we have another movie enthusiast amongst us.
1970's Hong Kong movies
The Way of the Dragon (1972)
This may be sacrilege, i think this is better than Enter the Dragon!
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
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'
I guess these can/should be mentioned in the martial arts movies thread
How many of you have seen this classic? I bet not many!
And same year as take down.......this was another classic
Oooh, oooh, Mr. Kot-ta!
The more I think about this the more I realise take down and fast break are the clear winners.......all gifts and t shirts and UFC merchandise can be sent to my home address....
Bump for fresh input.
@Stickgrappler got some cool ones I will be checking out soon.
Where can these old movies even be found now?
In my heart.
Maybe not the best but some enjoyable ones that have not been listed...
Thread reeks of pretentiousness and New Jersey.
Are you in a new Jersey Starbucks, per chance?
Why the fuck would I ever go to New Jersey Bruv?
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
Comes out with a Top 10.
Lists 11 movies.
Wait a fucken minute
How did you forget perhaps the greatest movie of all time?
