Blade vs Nomak should be on there, but I voted Kong vs The V-Rex's, awesome, awesome scene.
 
I voted for Luke vs. Vader in Empire.


Eastern Promises, Viggo vs. the two big slugs in the sauna thing.

Oh hells yeah! Fighting two armed russian thugs nekkid! That fight kicked so much ass!:wow:
 
Spider-Man 2 contains the definitive superhero fight. No other movie has felt more like a comic book than that scene.

Agreed.
 
No Hector VS Achilles?
 
Me too. It was too much. Too accurate. I like the original movies sabre fights. The cool part of the Anakin-Obi Wan fight is that they were practically parallel in their fight. I still think the end of the fight was so anti-climactic. They should have spoke to eachother alot about what was happening and what was going on like Luke and Vader did in Episode 5 and 6.


As OsGom wrote the Obi Wan and Darth Maul and Qui Gon fight was better.

They talked enough. You can only do so much when your now Sith apprentice is trying to kill you, you know.

I just loved the symbolism. Send Anakin to hell now that he's made a pact with the devil. Mustafar represents what going on with him internally, so you show that. Becuase along with that we are about to witness his damnation.

Pride leads to downfall. Which shows his arrogance. Pride burns him both literally and figurativally.
 
How is it possible that "Fight club" is not mentioned in this thread ?? Particularly Ed Norton´s fight against his fist !!!!

:cmad:


Polux
 
Anything from Crouching Tiger.

I liked Jet Li and Jackie Can's fight in Forbidden Kingdom as well.
 
spiderman 2 the clock tower to the overhead train was simply incredible action. TDK may have pushed SM2 to the number two spot on my all time superhero movies but for sheer action nothing in the TDK tops the spidey doc ock fight (imho).

the fight was like literally taking a comic book fight and putting it on the big screeen. kudos raimi, kudos.

I disagree but I understand that some younger generations saw these movies first and love CG and action more than the story itself. You are intitled to your opinion and I respect that. So here it goes...The new movies and overdone CG and fights were terrible to me.

In the old movies Luke was persistent with Vader and trying to prove the emperor and him wrong in the Episode 6. They had full on conversations with Vader saying that his sister was next and that he can't fight his feelings of betrayal. Better dialogue as well.

The last thing you said I completely agree with but how the movie played that theme out was nauseating.
 
I think people don't get episode 6 and i do. Darth VADER knew as Obi Wan did that they would fight each other. I think it was more clear for Luke too be a Jedi in Vaders mind when he took a long breath as Luke was being taken away. Vader knew Luke had to fight him and he was making Luke do it and his sisters was the knife twist Vader needed and Obi Wans failure was a nice jab too

I think everyone gets that...

Here's a question for George Lucas...so which prophecy is true. A Skywalker will bring balance to the force. Though Luke saved his father by not killing him and showing his compassion. In the end Vader chose to change back and save his son from impending doom and killed the Emperor. So who brought balance to the force? Luke/Vader/or both?


Okay, best movie fight...Helms Deep in Two Towers. More Viggo Mortensen a$$ beaten!
 
Best fight: Superman vs. nobody in Superman Returns

Well i'm not exactly the younger generation (i'm 32) and i respectfully disagree with u :oldrazz: personally, i enjoyed the faster fights and the CG, and it makes sense they were more intense because we were watching jedi in their prime, properly trained, something we didnt have in the OT. Just because i appreciate this doesnt mean i dont care for the story :cwink:

I think for the Vader/Obi-Wan duel in ROTS not much could have been said between these two. Right before it starts u see (or at least it seemed obvious to me) that they saw things differently and neither one was gonna change their mind. And Kenobi realized this. I found the amount of talking in the ROTS duel apropiate to the intensity of the moment.

Weapon: i think it was Anakin all along.
 
I voted Other. I wasn't even partially compelled to vote for any of the given options...

The Bourne Ultimatum - Jason Bourne vs. Desh

Kill Bill Vol. 1 - The Bride vs. The Crazy 88

V for Vendetta - V vs. Creedy's gang

Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade - Indiana Jones vs. Nazis in Desert

Kill Bill Vol. 2 - Beatrix Kiddo vs. Ellie Driver

Wasn't speaking to you. I was speaking in general.


Not much could have been said? :huh: They were best friends. Obi trained him. Obi was almost a father figure. Anakin wife was dying. It was dyer times. Theres alot to be said.

As for Anakin being the chosen one...and bringing balance. I agree.
 
There does't really need to be words said. I thought there was plenty. All those years between the two of them spoke for itself. In a way when they were fighting, those were their words, the whole fight. Their history lends to that also.

Yeah, Anakin all along was the chosen one. His transformation into Vader was just part of that cycle. I don't think he could of avoided that. It was destiny. That was mapped out from the beginning I think. He had to become what he was against to accomplish that. That's one of the tradgedies of Anakin. It's so well done. Say what you want about it, but the ironies and the parallels in all six films lend to that so well.

Yeah, I was one of those younger generation seeing the prequels. I was 7 when I saw TPM and 13 when I saw ROTS. I'm 16 now, and CG effects over story is the last thing I care about. I care about story, I disect films, look for symbolism, metaphors. I think I could be one of the few teens that do that. The action scenes in TDK were my least favorite parts, as good as they were, I wanted to get back to the characters.

I do agree, The prequels, in a way were like, "Oh, look what we can do" unlike the OT. But there is still that story there. It's just a little lost in the CG and the (not directed at you) blindness and disapointment of fanboys that were let down. They're too busy bashing Lucas for the usual that we've heard a million times and don't look at these films in the story. It's still there.
