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.

In: Iron Monkey (Erik, you get that nom back)
The Bride With White Hair (Vickie, you get that one back)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

I'll resist the temptation to put in any more automatics (yeah, right).

Five more noms and five more seconds for everyone; total of 15 noms and 10 seconds for anyone joining it now. There are tons of these great films. Go nuts.

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?
