    A tourney for kung-fu/martial arts movies.

    Everyone gets 10 nominations and 5 seconds. No thirds needed. Sixty-four movies sounds about right, depending on the response. Personally, I'd keep things like The Matrix out, but we'll let the 2nd-ing process work the bugs out.

    If this has been done already, let me know. I hope there are enough folks who enjoy these films around here to pull this off.

    I'd be abstaining a lot, but I own about 75 Hong Kong/Chinese films, so I might get lucky. Then again, I haven't seen any of the films already mentioned.

    The master list is updated, and the nominated films are now listed.

    ErikG gets another nomination: "bloodsport" was already in the tourney.

    Note: Police Story 3 is Supercop. Police Story 4 is First Strike.

    I'm going to stay out of this one because all I know is Jackie Chan and very few others. But enjoy!

    And Supercop 2 is aka Police Story 3 Part 2, aka Police Story 4: Project S, aka Police Story V.

    Maybe we ought to refer to Jackie's films by their Cantonese names?
