Hey all. Im trying to remember the name of a movie I used to see all the time when i was younger. It had alot of kung fu fighting scenes in it, and it mustve been old around 70s im guessing. I THINK jackie chan stared in it. All i can remember is that at one time in the movie they kicked around this little ball with feathers attached to it like it was some sort of sport, a fight scene on a tile roof, and some sort of fight scene at the end involving his "master" or friend or something getting beaten up i guess.
I really want to see the movie again so I can remember it. I hope someone here can take what I remember and know which movie I'm talking about, thanks.

On the subject of the thread, there's another movie I'd like to find again. It was a US movie from the 70's, circled around some youngsters working at a car wash. One day, they washed a car they found to be stunning. If I remember right it was a red, heavily modified american sportscar, like a Pontiac Firebird or something. They were amazed, but somehow responsible for getting it stolen. So the main theme of the movie is them finding it again. Idea anyone?

Alrighty then... I am going to continue with the theme of not being able to help Cookie, but rather needing help myself ;)

I have been trying search for an "old" movie where they were in cold war Berlin there was some chase scene with (if I remember correctly) a grey Peugeot 405 and Tom Skerrit might have played the other leading role. Not sure about it being Skerrit though as IMDB doesn't seem to have a film by him resembling this description. Skerrit (or whoever) was playing the older exprecienced agent tutoring the young "hot shot" agent etc.

WOW, right after typing my post I re-entered IMDB in frustration being sure that the lead actor must have been Skerritt, despite failing to find it on numerous occations in there.

But for some reason I found it on the first try! Honor Bound (or Red End). YiiHAA. Now all I have to do is find the bloody film somewhere so that I can see it again.

Jet Li - Tai Chi Masters...

At least that is according to a friend of mine. He saw the description and said that immediately.

Edit: Just checked imdb, my friend said it was the 80's, and all of Jet Li's movies from that time are titled in Chinese... so I can't find it directly, I'll re-confirm with my friend later. He speaks Chinese, I don't. Perhaps the descriptions will shed more light on the situation for you, though...

Are you sure it was a car wash? Not a shop class? If it was a shop class then it might be Corvette Summer with Mark Hamill.

And it was...umm...awful. =D

Hm... does it end with Jackie Chan drinking some methylated spirits and got seriously boozed, then proceed to fuck everyone up with his druken attack or something like that???
