My favourite one is called "Ong Bak", it's not Kong Fu but it's Thai Boxing, but they are nearly the same.

have you seen the last movie with Tony Jaa (I think it's the name of the hero in Ong Bak...)? I think the name is something like the honor of the dragon... taht' the tittle here in France. But in French.. Wink i didn't see it, cause I don't want to see an Ong Bak ll .. tell me about it!!

and what does everybody think about Jackie Chan?
I like him, he is funny, but his movies are more for younger people... i think to like kung-fu (for French people), you start watching Jackie Chan, and you finish by Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Tony Jaa, etc but my favorite jackie Chan movies are Rush Hour l & ll ...

I know Ong Bak! A good movie!

Pommezani are you doing kickboxing, too? I know a french guy who do it too, and I have heard from him that kickboxing is popular in Paris.

The actors you listed up, Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Tony Jaa are all very good martial artists, I like them, too!

yes!! they are very very good!! but I don't do kickboxing... the thing is that I'm not able to do those sports when you have to win a battle.. cause I don't really care about winning, and the person that I have to battle with really wants to win.. and I'm a very nice person, so I let them win, cause they're happy then!! that's the truth, i'm not lying... So kickboxing is not a sport for me.. but yes, it's really popular in Paris, and in some parks, during lunch, you can see them practizing etc.. very cool..

I'm practizing Qi-Gong... it's the kung-fu movments, but slower and that's better for me: I'm not a doing-things-quickly person... Laughing I'm kidding but Qi-Gong is very great, I love it, and it's really helpful for a lot of things..

so what about the new movie of Tony Jaa?
I really liked the new movie of Jet Li, when he is Huo Yuanjia ! really great movie.

I like the "Kung Fu Hustle".
It's a comedy with Chinese Kung Fu.
And,Kung Fu Hustle is a humorous parody and mockery of the wuxia genre, played and directed by Stephen Chow.
I like the director's funny style.
So, I recommend the good film.
Whe I feel boring, I can choose to watch it. Very Happy
By the way,it introduced many Chinese Kung Fu,ex:Lion's roar , Eight Trigram Staff ,practices Hung family Iron Wire kung fu and 12 Kicks of the Tam School in film,it's so inconceivable!!!
And this a Kung Fu Hustle poster

I like Steven Chow! I don't think Chang Yimou is good at directing Kongfu movies. Hero and The House of Flying Daggers sack!
