    Return of the Dragon

    The Octagon

    The Dragon Lives Again is my favourite Brucesploitation movie, not because it's really that good, but because the level of insanity in that movie.

    Fascinating.  I had Enter the Dragon as #1 for like 25 years.  And it is still in top ten of favorite movies of all time.

    Recently, having watched Ip Man 4, and a huge fan of 1,2,and3 , this must be the new #1.  Why? The fight scenes of course,.... but the character development is so full, and real.  Beautiful cinematography and set design.  I mean, who wasn’t in tears when Ip man wife died?  

    So, technically, must place Ip Man 1,2,3,4 as number 1.

    Kill bill vol 1 and 2 is #3

    You pretty much nailed it but I would have put IP Man higher on the list. Along With the Gods would have made it onto my list even though it's more fighting than martial arts. 

    I am just disappointed with you. Now I have to compare your list to my 2,000+ title movie library. Did you really have to include so many? Do you realize how much work you just created for me? I have to figure out if they're worth my time, where I have to buy it from, wait for it to download, enter it into a database to be categorized. 

    Actually,nope, I have all of those. Pretty mainstream list. Just a few to check. Thanks for the list.
