top ten favourite movies

yoshi-the-navy-beast  asked:

Do you have a top ten favourite martial arts movie list? Also a top ten martial artist? I'm asking because my friend just got into martial arts cinema and he doesn't like my choices. I showed him 5 deadly venoms, Tai Chi master, The Raid, Wheels on Meals, and Iron Monkey. He only liked 2... 😑 please help me educate this horrible person. Any must see suggestions are welcome as well

To be honest, there’s not much that can be done for your friend. You’ve shown him an EXCELLENT selection of kung fu films. And a varied selection at that. Perhaps he just isn’t meant to like the genre.
I don’t exactly have a top ten, but a few I’d recommend he watch would be:

Drunken Master 2
The Young Master
Kung Fu Jungle
Ip Man
The 36th Chamber of Shaolin
Martial Club
Once Upon a Time in China
Fist of Legend
The Raid 2
Armour of God
Duel to the Death
Eastern Condors
Odd Couple
Shanghai Express

If he doesn’t like any of these, he’s a lost cause.


↳ 8: Iron Man 2, 2010

“I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one. To turn over the Iron Man suit would be to turn over myself, which is tantamount to indentured servitude or prostitution, depending on what state you’re in. You can’t have it.”


↳ 7: Lord of the Rings, the Return of the King, 2003

“ Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!”
