Now, these were the movies every boy in class would run to borrow in the video lib. They were filled with so much action and fighting...that we all tried to emulate the heros. We were filled with psyche that we too could be as tough as nails. Yeah right. They entertained! They made us laugh! They gave us stories for break-time/lunch-time/home-time heck they even made it to our blogs decades later!
Way before the likes of Matrix...before the Crouching Tiger type of martial art there were these...
I wonder if i'll ever watch them again? Cause I am sure i would not really enjoy them as such!
Death Before Dishonor
Who even knew what Dishonor meant...but by golly that movie was a must!
THE LAST DRAGON
Who's the master? I am! Classic of course if it was in these day in aga the line who'd be...Who's ma bitch? I am!
Older James Bond Series
We all watched JAMES BOND didn't we. Loved them Loved them...I'm still recovering from Pierce not being Bond but i did that post em days so we shall not go there but...these were some great flicks.
Now if you loved action with a serious sense of humor with an all star cast-awesome. I mean where do u get off with Roger Moore acting as a British Wanna-be who thinks he is Roger Moore?
Police Academy Series

Jackie Chan Flicks
Jackie Chan sure had his flicks...obviously with voice overs butthis is a good film I remember.
Karate Kid Series
Cammon we all remember that signature flying kickthat will forever remain a classic. Wax off, Wax in. Mr Miyagi Sir. The sequel wasn't that bad either but them drums that you beat by twisting them kinda spooked me. ha.
I used to give out Karate lessons in Primo aremd with the knowledge i had from this film. I'd challenge guys to attack and would defend successfully..well it didn't work on my cousin who beat the crap out of me and had me pinned down with a twisted arm borderline tears!
Best of the Best Series
