My 'Bruce Almighty'

Have adored him for as long as I can remember. My IRC handle was Bruce Lee :-) People have pictures of their pets and boyfriends and flowers and mom and dad adorning their walls. I have my Bruce Lee sketch. I used to have colorful sketches of Pokemon characters my angel made for me, but they all went missing one by one. Now it's going to be Master Lee here, fist of fury outstretched and nunchucks ready to fly...

What's your favorite Bruce Lee movie?

I liked all his movies but 'The Big Boss' and 'Enter the Dragon' were always my favorites. Now that I'm old and boring, I like the ones I considered a little 'boring' when I was a kid better.

'Way of the Dragon' was and still is amazing to watch. I like that part where Bruce fought a bunch of thugs in the alley behind the restaurant. He knocked one guy down....

'Movement number 4: The dragon seeks path.'

...he said. Kicking some badass's ass...

'HAiiiiieeeeahhhh..'

(Hoodlum fell down)

'The Dragon whips its tail.'

Man! I can watch that scene over and over again.....
Those lines made me do some serious dreaming about being a 'Chinese Kungfu' master. I have a cousin who used to be so caught up with 'Movement Number 4' that everytime he tried to be funny, or scary, or threatening, he'd do Movement Number 4. But sadly, he's all grown up now so I don't get to see Movement Number 4 all that often anymore.

And the fight in the colosseum was awesome. Chuck Norris actually looked kind of handsome in that movie. But OMG you noticed the hair on the guy!?! EWWwwwwwwww IT WAS SO GROSS! It looked like he had little dark thunder clouds hovering around all over his body. Not natural at all.

I liked it when Bruce Lee pulled a tuft of hair off off Chuck Norris's chests, he should've given him a full body waxing.

Then the American fell, and Tang Lung walked away victorious. And it always felt like Tang's victory was my own.

Bruce Lee - A true master. And handsome and charming and funny to boot.

I wish he could've stayed a little longer.

It is not until I watched Bruce's biopic 'Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story', starring Jason Scott Lee (not related to Bruce)that I realised his greatness even in real life...

Claytonia and virgo - seen that movie too. I thing I don't like about it is that it's got Jason Scott Lee in it. I don't have anything against the guy :P but my brother's always teased my lil sis about the guy and I just can't take him seriously anymore.
