At least there still some ok Tony Jaa and Donnie Yen movies.

Oh yeah, goes without saying that the Chinese films are much much better. Once Upon A Time, Fist of Legend, Bodyguard from Beijing, Tai-chi Master, Hero... good times.

In no particular order:
Hero
Fearless
Unleashed
Kiss of the Dragon
The One
The Warlords
Romeo Must Die
Once Upon a Time in China
Fist of Legend

Except for The Warlords, all are classic action films.

I like him far more than jackie chen

Needs moar Tai-chi Master. Also Evil Cult if you want to see Jet Li flying through the air shooting lasers with the power of kung-fu, which you definitely do.

You forgot capeshit panders to the Reddit and Tumblr crowd with odd interactions and "lol so randumb xDDD" and "le epic may-mays" humor, whereas films like 'The One' were just action/sci-fi films without any of the pandering to a millennial audience.
>>
>>64550552
just you wait for Iron Fist
>>
>>64551308
you're talking about one direction taken by one company. not all capeshit is the MCU. shit even in the MCU, Daredevil was basically a crime drama with martial arts and ninjas

They pandered to the audience at the time. the matrix audience.

Also, with the rise of the internet in popularity it became easier to pin-point specific markets and what they want. This has always been going on, films only get made if people think other people will pay to see it. Except back in the day the market research was cruder and restricted to test audiences and whatnot.

Just be mad at people for liking may-mays and quips, because capeshit is only responding to the market in an intelligent and admirable way.

It doesn't help that modern blockbusters like capeshit are basically all solid movies. You can be mad if marvel made bad superhero films, but they don't.
>>
>>64551362
Daredevil was pre Ironman. Post Ironman, all capeshit is the same. Le witty one-liners are even spreading outside of capeshit, there was one five minutes into the new Star Wars film that felt like it was straight outta Marvel.

>Netflix is releasing a Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon sequel next month

Not Jet Li, but intredasting. I hadn't noticed. Hope the trailer music isn't actually from the show.

yeah, what 80s/90s action hero every did witty one liners? preposterous!
>>
>>64551453

wow who chose this fucking song cover for the trailer, fucking fire them.
>>
>>64551500
I thought you meant the weird movie
>>64551542
I'd say there's a difference between impaling someone with a pipe and telling them to let off some steam and then just making quirky/witty comments constantly in place of actual dialogue.
>>
>>64551432
Fuck off back to Plebbit, shill.
>>
>>64551610
but no one watched those movies for the dialogue, they watch commando for the action and cheesy one-liners. what i'm saying is, people like you seem to hate on "capeshit" because you dislike a portion of it's fandom. yes, reddit and tumblr indeed love those movies, because MOST people love those movies and redditors are a part of humanity. you think redditors don't like demolition man or con air or die hard? capeshit is actually very versatible, it can be anything from horror to sci-fi to drama to comedy.
>>
>>64551542
The difference was that those one-liners in 80s/90s films tended to be cheesy, even for back then, and were very general humor.

Nowadays, almost the entire dialogue of hero films is someone speaking in a faux British accent while uttering "quirky" memes that makes Tumblrinas and Redditors squeal with delight and say "LOLOL DID U GET THE REFERENCE? I DID BECAUSE I'M A L33T HAX4 WHO'S 'IN' MEME CULTURE XD"

It's just plain cancer.
At least the cheesiness is an actual legitimate attempt at trying to be funny, unlike... well, straight up and un-subtle pandering.

>They pandered to the audience at the time. the matrix audience.

Obviously... which makes it much better than capeshit.

It's cheesy in a cool way, not smug ass shitty reddit humor.
>>
>>64551890
if you look at eighties and nineties action movies, superhero movies have more in common with them than modern action movies who are all serious and thrillery(Bourne, Jack Reacher, even some of the new Bonds). action movies today take themselves seriously, while superhero movies have more of the old action movie spirit

I'm just being rational.

You guys act like capeshit movies are made just to torture you.

If it bothers you so much, grab a camera and make a movie.

Regular people hardly care about capeshit. They watch it at movie theaters because it's the only thing there is to do, but then afterwards. forget about and never really bring it up unless asked what movies they've watched.

Tumblrinas, on the other hand, will obsess over shipping characters together and 'quirky awkward guys in it x)))" and Redditors will obsess about how "gritty and epic it was"
