Simply Gorgeous


In my opinion, this is probably one of the best fighting scenes during the late 90s. Jackie Chan is widely known for his spectacular and unique martial arts choreography throughout his career. Through the influences of the late comedic actor Buster Keaton and Chinese Opera combat and acrobatics, Jackie has created something martial artists and non-martial artist would enjoy filled humor and finesse! Majority of his main scenes provide a particular message. In this scene from the romantic film, Gorgeous, Jackie was an out of shape business defeated from an outdoor boxing match from the opponent (Bradley James Allen) shown in the video. Due to his defeat, he seek to train more frequently (not for competition, but for himself). His dedication for training showed us how much we need to always sharpen our skills so we can ready at all times.

The opponent offers him a rematch which he accepts. The choreography displayed beautiful striking and aerial kicking while complimented the individual fighting styles. Eventually, Jackie recognized he must alter his fighting style to overcome his opponent. Naturally, the alternate style was more fluid and “bespoken” to him. Sometimes, it takes a few hits for us to wake up and change our current position to outweigh those particular outcomes.  I love the contrast on the stylish minimal black and white ensembles as it reflect the yin-yang concept throughout the match! This is one of my favorite fighting scenes ever!

Fist of Fury: Dojo Fight


I am not gonna lie back in the day, Me and my little brother always wanted to go to other people’s martial arts schools imitating from this scene.  That was a childish yet arrogant stage, but who doesn’t live moment they see in the movies lol! Bruce Lee took care of business with the karate school in Shanghai in Fist of Fury. Talk about a one man army! By the way, were those real people he was swinging? Comedy I tell ya!

 

 

 

“Iron Will”

Jackie Chan Vs Benny the Jet


THis is a classic fighting scene from Meals on Wheels! Old school Jackie is always the best in my opinion!! The beauty of the fight was not from the choreography. It was more from Jackie realizing the only way he can conquer his fight is to doing what he does best! In life, we should look at all of our confrontations as such!

Scorpion vs. Sub-Zero


This is one of the recent episodes of Mortal Kombat Legacy. One thing for is to provide an episode whereas Scorpion and Sub Zero battle it out! Fire and Ice always cancel each other out, but one of them is about to get canceled like Nino Brown. 

 With the remake of the franchise, I am questioning the true ultimate outcome which made the two as ultimate enemies. Those who have not played the game, I shall not give any spoilers. Hopefully Warner Bros. will get that right!

So much for the “so called realism” ! That statement was a joke because you can only take it so far without extracting the essentials which makes Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat lol!

The fighting scenes were alright. I was not ultimately impressed for the most part. One thing about the fighting scene is way beyond the kick and punch. The fighting scenes should always be cohesive with the story/script. There wasn’t any feeling regards that matter. however I was please to see some Boxcutters ( that was the twist kick followed up with the hook kick in the air) and inverted tricks in the sequence!

Fighting scene of the week: Game of Death


This fighting scene is beyond a classic! Bruce Lee and Dan Insanto going at it in Game of Death. This fighting scene was not all about flare, but the intellectual aspect of martial arts. Like sports, martial arts is more brain than brawn.

Although striking your opponent is the objective, manipulating an opponent’s rhythm and pattern requires great skill. Eskrimas and Bruce’s fencing inspired moves were great!

worst fighting scenes of all time #1


to provide the balance, I have to throw some bashing every once in a while. Take this fighting scene for instance from mortal kombat conquest. when I was a kid it was coo, but growing up you see somethings from a different perspective. Clearly this shit sucks ass. There was no realism in the choreography at all! it was very cheesy, but the problem was trying to convert mortal kombat as a family (epic fail). Be the judge of yourselves
