So what do you like better? Sick move busting martial arts or super violent intense gun fights? I would say Martial arts, cause i am a martial artist. Your opinions? In movies.

If it's something like an Ong-Bak movie, you know Muay Thai kinda stuff then yeah. If it's a mexican-standoff then sure.

Just saw Hard Boiled. It had both in spades. But overall, guns akimbo is awesome...especially combined with motorcycles and explosions.

well put it this way...me beyond arms reach and being proficient with firearms, I could destroy you before you even got to me...if it was a one on one fight I could only pray my scrappy dirty fighting tricks could keep me alive...though it depends on what you're asking, as far as what looks coolest in movies? it can go either way, both can be rediculously retarded or the most awesome thing ever filmed...in real life, guns win, that's why they were invented

Fighting, it's just a lot more entertaining to me. Like Jet Li's movies that aren't in English, or some older Jackie Chan movies. Nothing like Crouching Tiger though, Jesus that was terrible. =\

Gun fights, by a LONG way. I'd much rather see exploding skulls, brains flying through the air, blood spraying from holes in throats and intestines spilling out onto the floor from a blast of lead from an MG42 than some Chinese people kicking each other.

Definitely martial arts. It just looks cooler. And it seems like it's more skillfull.

It is kinda unnerving actually.

On topic, i can't really decide, a majority of good shoot out movies kina suck in the martial arts section, the martial arts parts in films should have a different vibe to shoot outs.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Ninjas with machine guns = epic win

lol. Samuria+machine guns= no more ninja

True about the Protector...the uncut 4 minute fighting sequence is non-paralleled.

And what's unnerving about my name? Is it the alliteration?
Quote by keiron_d

True love exists in UG. Can you feel it?

I totally forgot about that movie. Good goddamn. Haven't seen that in years.

Wasn't that about cocaine deals or something? Anyway, I like that one and Drunken Master a lot. Though the random others like Half A Loaf of Kung Fu is like...weird.

(believable) martial arts easily win over gun fights. There just are more nuances and momentum while the other targets quick amazement.
#22
Yeah martial arts.Especially my martial arts skills

I've taken numerous karate lessons, so I'm pretty good at martial arts. But I also play airsoft, and therefore rock at shooting people and not getting shot as well.


Unfortunately, I'm not great at guitar...

Guns, in many forms.

Guns in war:
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=WMRhZF3FaNs One of the classic battlescenes, with a beautiful and quiet score in the background.

Guns and gangsters:
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=UPjeNb3yd08 Great, over the top shootout with an iconis ending.

Guns and Chinese people (dubbed in English):
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=SowHoPQwWmM JOHN FOOKIN' WOO!

Guns and - the master - Dirty fucking Harry:

Martial arts. It's fascinating, makes you wonder if the actor can bend like that somewhere else.

A mix of the two.

If you can only have one, it really depends on my mood and the situation.

i'd take clever dialog over both, but if i am forced to choose between these two...martial arts scene.

I like watching Martial arts more than gunfights but I do enjoy both.
I guess it comes with being an actual martial artist.

I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...

Quote by aaron6890
anyone remember that sick gunfight in raiders of the lost arc? the one when he took on that guy with the sword?


1. wasent so much a fight as it was....a shot
2. If have always looked back on that scene and wondered what if that guy was a normal everyday street preformer just in the wrong place at the wrong time, you know hes doing his act and some tourist gets the wrong idea and pops him one.....

Well, I think gun fights tend to be more extciting because they have guns and explosions, etc., but kung-fu fights can be cool. Not really as exciting, but still really fun to watch.


I was actually discussing this with a friend, whether he liked WWII movies or kung-fu movies better, and we both decided on WWII movies.

Actually I'd like to see a nuclear fire fight. You know a full-scale nuclear war on all fronts until nothing's left, not even single-cell organisms left for the winter.

Not much room for variation, besides an indefinite amount of mushroom clouds and never-ending blinding-ass light.
