Along these lines...Does MaryEllen Moffit ring a bell?  Well, I saw a preview for a documentary during "shark Week"  And the voice over sounded familiar.  Then it all came crashing together.  The story of the documentary was told during the MaryEllen Moffit story.  -I expect SHM to at least know what I'm talking about.

What sort of films are we talking about here. Gritty, action movies like "The Warriors", or just
any good films in general? IMHO, the 70's, in particular, was one of the greatest film decades
of all time.

Nice, new look for the forum btw. What happened to the Warriorsness? Still works tho.

I want to see everything in General,The Gritty to The undiscovered Gems that people forget about,and you can even throw in some Old School Martial Arts Movies to boot,as a matter of fact I was about to check out Smokey and The Bandit,cause I never seen it before,and I know that's not a Grindhouse Film,or is it?.

Five superfighters and Mad monkey kung fu are a couple of old skool Shaw brothers flicks that's worth a watch if you're in the mood. Their version of Fist of fury called Chinese boxer is decent. The same story is told in Legend of a fighter.
Sammo Hung's Enter the fat dragon is a good example of his early work.

"Smokey and the Bandit" was a major release back when, so I wouldn't call it Grindhouse.
Think "The Dukes of Hazard" in a movie form. (Although this is the type of movie that
ultimately inspired that TV show actually). I watched it again about 15 years ago, and
it was hard to watch. The humor was really corny and outdated to me. Still, it IS a classic.

One of my favorite "Kung-Fu Theatre" type flicks from the 70's is "Master of the Flying
Guillotine"! It just dosn't get much better than that.

Also "Enter the Ninja" (from 1980 I think) was one of the first big movie releases to kick
off the 80's "Ninja" craze, and features Sho Kosugi's first major appearance. The first
15 minutes of the film are reason enough to watch.

I watched the ninja trilogy so many times as a kid. We used to think the main character from Enter the ninja was stormshadow from G.I.Joe because he wore a white ninja costume. Ninja 3: Domination, was the best of the trilogy. Topless Lucinda Dickie from Breakin, gets possessed by a dead ninja and takes revenge on the cops who shot him. Proper 80s cheese.

This is so bad...well, it's just BAD.

Dig the desighner headbands, and the "Miami Vice" soundtrack towards the end.

I remember as a kid in school when the Ninja Craze was in full swing,kids in my school,in Brooklyn NY bringing in there nunchucks and Ninja Stars,and talking all this Ninja Magic bullshit with the hand gestures,OMG,Thank you for the laughs and making me remember this little flashback from my youth..thinking back on this now it's too funny,cause they could never get away with this now,Especially if you were to say that "Ninja Magic" Bullshit now,they would think that you were on Drugs now. LOL

To my friends,here put me on to some cool shit LOL

Glad you enjoyed it. This clip is truly a spectacle of cringe-worthy horridness. Funny,
one of the first things I thought of too was "Power Rangers"! LOL

Generally agreed, although I do kind of dig "Crockett's Theme"... :oops:
