As Lindsay pointed out in last week’s Friday Fight, I love any movie with fighting in it. This is mostly true. Movie fights are great, and it’s surprising how few good ones there are. Hollywood, more fights please. They make any movie better. Think of all the horrible movies that don’t have fights. Pay It Forward? No fights. That’s a current reference that makes sense to use. In Her Shoes? Not a single scissor kick. More like In Her Lame! Anyway, after the jump I have collected my six favorite fight scenes from the past six years. Obviously. This is a totally definitive list that I’ve used science to create, so don’t bother arguing with it, because that would be arguing against science. You know, the thing that KILLED GOD.
6. Batman Begins
5. Kung Fu Hustle
4. 8 Mile
3. The Bourne Ultimatum
2. Ong Bak
1. Tom Yum Goong
Honorable Mention: Spider-Man vs. Venom.
I could have made this whole list just of Tony Jaa clips. It would be every second of all his movies, in no particular order, and it would be my last post because who cares about anything else. I’ll tell you this, Tony Jaa as America’s Vice President would bring peace to the Middle East in the form of a jumping roundhouse elbow to the throat. Just think about it, Presidential Candidates.
