Ridiculous martial arts movies!
Some of my favorite martial arts movies of late are remakes of American films, or Asian westerns. Here are a few of my favorites:
The Good, the Bad, and the Weird
Always wear a diving bell for protection in an gunfight!
A Thai Western with some amazing fight scenes and fireworks as the ultimate sidekick.
Tears of the Black Tiger
Freakishly technicolor with some very emo cowboys and a mean love interest. The first fight scene is brilliant!
Sars Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis
Full of campy gags, obvious (American) pop culture ripoffs, and a crazy wire-fu love scene.
Curse of the Golden Flower
This movie is kind of awful, but I'm including it because of the technicolor styrofoam props.
Hilarious modern Blaxploitation film set in the 1970s. Please do not interrupt this man's Kung Fu.
