Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

It's just doesn't have the same thrill as the first movie. What I say was almost the exact same events in the plot as the first film. The visual effects of the ninjas defying gravity and physics like when scaling the buildings or doing other things looked fake.

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

I never thought the first one was very good.

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

I think I am the only person on the whole entire planet who still hasn't even seen the First Movie.

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

I bet you watched both Kill Bill films?

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Definitely!

The First "KILL BILL" Movie is My Favorite.

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

You watched them because of the blonde ninja played by Uma or because it is Quentin Tarantino directed?

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

LOL!

No, I watched them because I heard a heck of a lot of good things about them and so when they were both finally out on DVD (I know that some time passed before the 2nd Movie came out and then again after it came out and then went to DVD), I then watched them.

By the way, "KILL BILL VOL. 1" is actually the First Quentin Tarantino Movie that I have seen.

Before that, I had only seen bits and pieces of both "PULP FICTION" and "JACKIE BROWN".

Of course, I have seen both of those Movies now (I like both Movies but I do think that "PULP FICTION" is Better than "JACKIE BROWN").

That being said….As of today, My own Number 1 Favorite Quentin Tarantino Movie is actually "THE HATEFUL EIGHT".

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Oh that's nice to hear.

If you like martial arts genre, you'll love Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It was nominated for an Oscar. It's one of the best modern martial arts movies ever made. The famous quote originating from the movie is

kill or be killed

Later on Demi Moore character in Charlie's Angel Full Throttle used the quote in one of her character's memorable fight sequences.


YouTube a scene from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I absolutely fell in love with the movie although I watched it on the big screen in the theaters which felt like an truly exhiliaring feeling. It's a beautiful story with amazing martial arts fighting. Espionage, romance, ninja assassins. It feature women in martial arts just like in the Kill Bill movies. And it was the film that introduced me to Michelle Yeoh. After that, I saw she was also a Bond girl in Tomorrow Never Dies.



Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

I have seen "TOMORROW NEVER DIES".

It's not exactly 1 of My Favorite James Bond Movies but I do think that it has it's moments.

Re: Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Wow you just talk all around my point, around Michelle Yeoh. You don't have to watch the movie. The purpose of my thread was to discuss this movie series with those who've seen it. I'm not promoting it. These are old movies.
