  1. Looks fun I guess? Ironically what I'm most looking forward to is just the character interactions, which was the best part of Homecoming by far IMO

    Baumer's 36 best films of 2018 (top 3 has been revealed)

    Nice top! You have most of my favorite movies of the year in your top, which is great! Upgrade rocks indeed. Avengers: Infinity War is also the best comic book movie of the year IMO Surprised I missed this, probably haven't looked at the stickied topics this week.
  3. Clark Gregg alone will bring in $100M dom mark my words
  4. The movie just got a gorgeous 4k restoration which is why they're re-releasing it, along with its sequel. https://www.polygon.com/2018/12/27/18157761/jackie-chan-police-story-4k-restoration-trailer-best-action-movie Police Story and Police Story 2 will be screening in weeklong engagements at the Alamo Drafthouse (Downtown Brooklyn), the Alamo New Mission (San Francisco), and the Music Box (Chicago) beginning Feb. 1, as well as at the Los Angeles NuArt (March 8-14), the Coolidge Corner Cinema (Boston, Feb. 1-2), Landmark’s Ken (San Dieg, Feb 1-2), the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz (Austin, Feb 2-3), the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers (Feb. 4), the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton (Denver, Feb 6), SIFF Cinema (Seattle, Feb 8), the Hollywood (Portland, Feb. 16-23), the Alamo Drafthouse LaCenterra (Katy, Feb. 19), the Charles (Baltimore, Feb. 28), and the DIA (Detroit, May 26-28). Absolutely worth a watch, Jackie Chan and his crew at the time were completely crazy. If you haven't seen this movie please do so, the stunts are just out of this world. The final mall sequence is one truly unforgettable action setpiece. Not sure if it's his best movie overall but in terms of pure action and stunts quality... I think it is. That or Police Story 3 Happy watching! I hope it will post some good numbers! Rare are the opportunities to catch those movies in theater in proper format.

    Amy holding her own, but Scott is like 2 sizes bigger, not much chance to begin with Accident Man is a fun movie, if you like Scott Adkins and British humor, be sure not to miss that one!

    Dax's movie fight showcase thread

    Might as well showcase the sequences I left out of the top for being redundant Going back a couple decades, we're back in Hong Kong for this one. Police Story 4: First Strike (1996) Directed by: Stanley Tong Fight Choreography: Stanley Tong, Vic Wilson Starring: Jackie Chan, Jackson Lou, Annie Wu Worldwide Box office: $21,890,845 ($15,318,863 domestic) My rating for this movie: ★★★ Synopsis: This installment of Chan's Police Story film franchise has our hero trying to locate a missing nuclear warhead. Interestingly enough, the Hong Kong version of this movie is quite hard to find, especially in good quality, and this sequence is longer in it which is part of the reason why people are still looking for it. The international release (including USA release) is much shorter. Jackie Chan fights with a ladder. Need I say more? A classic!

    The fights are way too one-sided in Kickboxer but they're still enjoyable, especially when they ramp up the brutality. And JCVD, well... it's JCVD! Perfect form.

    Dax's movie fight showcase thread

    I'm gonna kick this off with a recent movie, and a hilarious fight scene! Upgrade (2018) Directed by: Leigh Whannell Fight Choreography: Chris Weir, Michael M Foster Starring: Logan Marshall-Green, Melanie Vallejo, Steve Danielsen Box office: $14,316,615 worldwide ($11,916,615 domestic) My rating for this movie: ★★★★ Synopsis: Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when Grey, a self-identified technophobe, has his world turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant called Stem. I love this fight scene because it uses cinematic techniques to further give a soul and aesthetic to the fight. It's not just about framing and cutting in expert fashion to give gravitas to the scene, but to do it in a way that helps understand the perspective of the character doing the fighting. The camera moves are excessive but at the same time, they're meaningful. Obviously not everyone likes that kind of cinematography but for what's it's trying to be and make us feel, I loved it. It sets itself apart quite nicely. By the end of the movie it does become a bit convoluted but I think this scene and the next in the bar encompass the best of what it has to offer. A wonderful fight from a movie that's not so well-known, I recommend it. It's on google play. NSFW - very violent
  12. Sometimes I just wanna share some cool fights with you guys. And discuss or offer some insight into them. Every time I'd just... not do it. No more! Since my top is now closed for further replies, I figured I'd just create a new, different thread. So let this be a repository for cool movie fight sequences. Anybody can join in on the discussion and fun! Format: You're welcome to follow my format but really... just do whatever you want Except -- try your best to find at least some box office data on the movie. Sometimes it's impossible but this is, after all, a box office website. Happy watching people kick the shit out of each other!
  13. Ironically enough, Jackson was in charge of The Hobbit, and Lucas was also in charge of the prequels. So it may be true but the opposite is true as well.
