Sword of Doom is an incredible "Samurai" film. Not made by Kurosawa, but every bit as masterfully crafted. It's beautifully photographed as well. Toshiro Mifune has a great cameo in it.

It can be hard to find, but a search on the web should find it. Trust me, it's worth finding if you've never seen it.

If you only want a pure demonstration of fighting, see Bruce Lee's final (unfinished) film: The Game of Death. He takes on an escrima master, a Jujitsu master (I may be wrong about that-something with grappling) and finally Kareem Abdul-Jabar doing Jeet Kune Do. [/QUOTE]

Yea the second fighter was a hapkido master.

My favourite films are the old kung fu films...true choreography, brilliant movement and the time spent making these scenes are brilliant.

I like:
Ninja in the dragons den (Hiroyuki sanada)
Fearless Hyena (Jackie Chan)

i'll list the rest later

The American Ninja Series, hoo boy. Anyone else notice the "Secret Ninja Hiding Place" in these flicks? Whenever a ninja is in a bad spot, he inevitably reaches around BEHIND him, in the region of his posterior, and pulls out a weapon of some sort which was previously unseen. Examples include the black guy ninja pulling two butterfly swords from his butt, the white blond ninja pulling a limpet mine from his arse (while wearing only a speedo. shudder), and the bad guy shirtless ninja yanking a sawed off shotgun out of his a-hole. Those ninjas, YEARS of training. RIGOROUS self discipline. GRUELING colon-stretching.

Chris,

You may have found, as I have, when talking to older martial arts practitioners, both here and in Japan, that SUGATA SANSHIRO inspired many practitioners to begin their budo practise.

I still watch this film fairly often. It took me a while before I understood the lesson in sincerity rather than just compassion that Sanshiro receives when the zen priest forces him to have his 'small satori' with the obligatory 'whack'( to borrow an expression from Van De Wetering ).

I really wish that I could see one of the later versions which Kurosawa reworked the script for, but I never came across it in Japan.

Incidentally, the father of a certain Peter, whom we both know in Osaka, was inspired into a lifelong judo practise by this film.

Twilght Samurai. No wires, no bull. It is very close to some parts of Ryoma's life. There are only three fight scenes in the movie.

Nobody seems to have mentioned the three (maybe 4 by now) "Once Upon a Time in China" movies. I loved those, especially the first one. Also, there is an old movie, whose name I cannot remember, in which an American guy ends up cutting off his little finger, at the end of the movie, as an apology to his Japanese friend. It isn't exactly a martial arts movie the way "Enter the Dragon" is, but still an interesting perspective on marital arts.

Anpadh - the movie is "Yakuza" with Robert Mitchum slicing off the digit. It's one of my favourite films ever!
