201 : A Film Odyssey

This all started after I read Empire magazine back in March 2006.

Inside was a definitive list of the 201 best films of all time, as voted for by the magazine and it's readers. Included in the list were all kinds of films I would never normally watch. So as a keen film watcher, I thought to myself it might be a good idea to try and watch all the films in order and record my thoughts, and at the end of it, see how close the list was to my 201 best films.

This project will be much better if you could comment on these films and my reviews, so please, please, please get involved, just click on the comments text at the bottom of each review.

197 ... Enter The Dragon

197 ... Enter The Dragon

This was the first kung fu film to be made by a major hollywood studio. I had only seen a couple of short bits of this film years ago, and wasn't really keen - looked very 70s and slow, so not really looking forward to this one.

But it's great ! Story is Bruce Lee's character avenging his sisters death and defeating an evil drug dealing, prostitute selling villain, by entering a martial arts competion !
Really enjoyed it, good action and fighting, good story and some good characters (especially Williams). I did think some parts were a bit James Bond ish in places, but that's not a bad thing.

I would say this is one of the best films so far, and happy I now have it in my collection !

Watched on HD DVD. Picture quality only OK, due to the original film - but best you can get and loads of extras.

AFO (A Film Odyssey) rating 8
TJ (T J Hooker) rating n/a
CK (Captain Kirt) rating n/a
