    Y'know, one of the great things about the Ip Man series of films are the ancillary masters. These are the sifus who are initially rivals to Ip Man, but eventually become respected allies only for them to be killed or beaten afterwards. Honestly, I really like these characters, maybe moreso than Ip Man himself!

    One of my favorite masters has to be Master Liu from the first Ip Man. The guy is always just a step below Ip Man but always gives one hell of a fight. Though I know how it ends, I always root for Master Liu whenever he goes up against the Northerner in this scene:

    Aw man, I can't pick between some of those early Jet Li/Fong Sai Yuk fight scenes in all those 90's movies.

    Some of those Jackie Chan Drunken Master 2 fight scenes looked incredibly dangerous/painful to pull off. I need to watch those movies again.

    I think the two things I adore most about it are the emotional significance of the fight, and the fact Michelle Yoeh goes through every weapon known to exists to fight Zhang Ziyi. That's just cool (and very informative on how those weapons would be used).

    It's such a fun way to use magic. I have to say, for magic battles I also love Dumbledore vs. Voldemort; it reminded me of the three fairies in Sleep Beauty (1959), how it's not about throwing fire balls, but how you convert energy from one thing into the next.

    Drunken Master 2/Legend of Drunken Master was my jam back in the day. Watched the DVD nearly every Friday night in high school. I liked how Jackie focused on old school Kung Fu in those fights. And yeah, the REAL metal weights and the fire stunts were pretty damn dangerous. So of course Jackie did multiple takes with them. . (I'll be sure to post those later. Just want to mention new material before then.)

    I think one of the YouTube comments on that fight describes how every weapon Michelle used was a counter to the Zhang's straight sword. Lots of thinking went into it.

    Been watching repeatedly this fight scene from Avengers: Infinity War. The Iron Man part of the scene is sweet, but I prefer more the Dr. Strange portion. All of those moments where Strange used his spells, like the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, just came to life on the big screen here.

    Don't know if I did or not, but I'm guessing I stood up and cheered when I saw Cap use mjolnir against Thanos:



    Shades of that classic Infinity Gauntlet scene between the two mixed in with a much needed dose of fanboy correction.

    Kingsman: the Secret Service Colin Firth vs everybody in that church. Definitely the standout scene in that movie.

    My favourite fight scene from Angel - Angel vs Faith in Five By Five

    It's great because of the emotional investment of the audience at that point - there are lots of technically much better fight-scenes in films which still don't hit as hard, because they have failed to make you care about the characters enough. I'd always liked David Boreanaz's Angel, and Elisa Dushku has never had another character to play as interesting as troubled vampire slayer Faith, and she really knocked it out the park with this episode, imo.

    Nice description. It was cool how Angel sought to redeem and forgive Faith, which did pay off eventually. Faith was loyal to Angel especially with the arrival of the Beast.

    Speaking of which, Angel and his crew vs. the Beast was my favorite fight scene in that series. That was when I started to dig Wesley. Because, y'know, shotgun. Great stuff!

    I wish Del Toro and Snipes were still doing movies together. One of the best fight scenes ever.

    This was my favorite of the series, too. His team up with Connor in the series finale is a close second.

    Has anyone mentioned that awesome fight scene in The Live between Rowdy Roddy Piper and Keith David yet? Its pretty great.

    Also, They live as a whole is worth a watch. Classic sci-fi.
