    I thought The Chinese Connectionwas much better as a showcase of Bruce Lees skills then Enter the Dragon.
    Also liked The Seven Samuri.Gave a pretty good accounting of the Samuri society.

    Joel Grey is awesome in Remo Williams. You move like a baboon with two crub feet!

    What about "Undefeatable" which has the best fight scene EVER. Watch to the end if you can, but you'll see some sweet editing within the first 30 seconds. Don't worry, the grunting picks up later.

    The film "Remo Williams the Adventure Begins" is based on a series of books called "The Destroyer" series. There are well over 100 books in the series!

    Much like the Ian Flemming books about James Bond are less campy then the movies the Destroyer series of books is also much less campy.

    Here is a great film clip from Remo Williams-

    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    LOL, I watched BTiLC yesterday, well at least part of it.

    Crap, I'm gonna miss Remo. I am going to buy that on DVD. I have it recorded on VHS somewhere.
