        Seen the first 3 and like 'em all. Will probably get 'em on DVD or (with Chamber) Blu-ray.

          Fatal Flying Guillotine (1977)

          "Old bastard, I pretended to respect you, you stupid old fool! Ha ha ha!"

          Confusingly (to me) this is neither a sequel to the Shaw Brothers' Flying Guillotine nor the Thai One-Armed Boxer series (aka Master of the Flying Guillotine), which is what I thought I had at first.

          It was alright. The titular weapon looks pretty good here. The fights are decent.

            Does Jet Li's HERO count? Because that's one of my favorite movies of all time. Its just so damn beautiful. I've always liked his films. Obviously the popular Chan movies like Drunken Master are on my list but something about Li's movies just sung to me.

              We were talking a little about wushu (which some derogatorily refer to as "wire fu") somewhere below.

              I love Hero and have it on DVD. The color schemes alone are amazing. I also love the bits where thousands of arrows rain down.

                Speaking of Zhang Yimou (he directed Hero and House of Flying Daggers), he's in the news today:

                China probes reports of film director Zhang Yimou's seven children

                BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese authorities have begun investigating reports that Zhang Yimou, one of China's best-known movie directors, has seven children in violation of strict family planning rules, which could result in a fine of 160 million yuan ($26.05 million), state media said on Thursday...

                  He needs to appear on Maury...just to be sure. Then him and Maury can fight wire fu style in a duel of death

                    this has actually become a cinematic "thing" (like the Matrix's "bullet time" -effect)now; Id never seen that "sky darkened with arrows" -bit in any film before, but ever since that movie Ive seen it popup here & there.

                    and speaking of Li's flixx, a good one that didnt get any real billing on these shores was Warlords. I recommend catching it to anyone who hasnt done so yet.........

                      In the new Injustice game, Ares does it for his special move (right before he squishes you like a bug).




                      (Sorry, I can't find a capture for the arrows in air.)

                          I have this on DVD as well, but remember being somewhat disappointed. I'll have to watch this again.

                            Yo.

                            prolly cuz Hero wasnt an ma-flick in the strictest sense; it was more of a subtle revolution/conspiracy tale with romantic-oriented wire-fu mixed in; much like House of Flying Daggers.

                            a good Li ma-flick would easily be Fearless; good fighting performances, decent historical adaptation of a real folk hero, and a VERY well-done ending to seal the deal.

                              Speaking of "Wire-Fu," how do you guys feel about that? I thought it worked in a few flicks (CTHD), but when they started incorporating it into everything martial arts, it just detracts from how good the sparring sequences are and tip toes into the realm of fantasy. All martial arts flicks don't need to have characters flying from rooftops and tree branches to be visually stimulating.
