HK movie vote poll. Please read and vote

No flaming from you good folks at the Internation forum Having gotten sick of constantly getting people asking for recommendations at The DVD Forums this was considered...
The moment you've all been waiting for: The Kung Fu Film Poll!!!!!
Yup, you've probably been perplexed by these stupid HK film list threads floating around, so I'll just fill you in one what's been going on:

A couple of weeks ago a few of us HK fans decided that we could eliminate most of the "What HK film should I get?" or "What HKL title is worth buying?" threads by sorting out a definitive list of HK films. We decided to go all out & list a stupid number of titles so that no-one will be after a rating for a film that isn't on the list. So far, so good, but there's a shedload of HK films out there, so we've had to split the list up into categories. The first category that we have made for you to vote on is Traditional Kung Fu Films

It's took us a week, but we've come up with a list of titles that is guaranteed to perplex & freak out 90% of the people of the forums. Don't ask me for information on these titles, I've never heard of most of them!!!!

But don't ignore this list please as EVERY vote counts!!! Just copy the list to a text document on your hard drive & put a rating beside the films that you've seen. It doesn't matter if you've only seen 1 film on that list (Drunken Master no doubt), WE STILL WANT YOUR VOTES PLEASE!!!!

How do you rate the titles? Well, think IMDB. Just put a rating out of 10 next to the titles that you have seen & then E-mail the list to me at: [email protected]. Please, only post your results on this thread if you can't send me an e-mail, we don't want to use up the Forum's Bandwidth!

I will then take your results & find the average result for each film, just like the IMDB do. So please please help us out & vote on the list. Thanks!!!!!!!

Here's a brief Mark Breakdown Scheme:
1-2 = Crap!
3-5 = Average
6-7 = Good
8-9 = Very Good
10 = Excellent

I will leave this poll open for One Week, & next Monday I will post a new list for a new genre!

If we get a good response to this poll, then we will send the results to HKL, so maybe The DVD Forums could influence their future releases!!!

This list is so huge thanks to the knowledge of Tpr007 & DaveR so you can thank (or blame) them!!!!
Also this wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the brainwork of: Cirrus888, Kanedaa, JimmyBoy, Mr Vampire & Vinyl Pants Thanks again.

Also Mods, could you do us a favour & make this a sticky? Thanks.
Hopefully people will be happy to help, even if you've only seen a few of the titles, each vote counts to make a more accurate score (and also it would mean those late nights discussing the titles over and over will be wort the effort ).

And please send the vote via E-mail. I don't want the mods complaining that we're using up the bandwidth with the continuation of tedious lists. And thank in advance folks for reading this far
Heheheh. I wan't Shingster to be inundated with votes so he wont keep me up til 5 in the mornig when lessons are at 9.

Although this relates to an off-forum matter, I think it has some relevance and that the results will work their way across to this site. As a result I'm making this sticky for just a few days.

thanks Benedict

And as a thought, we at the #dragonsden irc chat considered that we should make a webpage to host these results which in turn would be added to our signatures as we're unsure whether the DVD Forums would sticky the post (they haven't).

And an additional reason why I posted here was I know there are people here that are more familiar with these films than I and people over there.

Well, this one had its few days of glory atop the board and can now fall gracefully down the page
