    Of course though, if your in the mood for some nicely choreographed MA fight scenes, couple with complete and utter fiction, you won't do much better than this:

    Great film, shame it's a load of bollocks though...LOL...

    If they just explain how they filmed XMA, then I'll just skip that. I'll try and watch all the other stuff though. If I can remember. :(

    Its just a shame that they are not re-showing "Way Of The Warrior" or "Conquest: Secret Weapons Of The Ninja" anytime soon. I will keep 'em peeled...

    Ep, that's terrible. Sorry about your economy up there.

    Hey, why don't we tape them and send them on up? You use the same kind of VCR format right? :confused:

    I'd tape em if I got those channels too. Unfortunately, right now I have the choice between a new gi and a few extra cable channels. :(

    Please tape it for me, we all have the same VCR's in North America,
    and I'll pay for the shipping in Canadian Curency.
    1 American $ = 1 Canadian $, I think I got the math right! :D

    You can get a warriors journey on dvd, with a special edition of enter the dragon. :D

    I really wanted to see that XMA thing, especially because I do anatomical science at uni. Does anybody know if it's gonna be re-run in England? I can't find anything on it.

    At first I thought this was going to be another thread promoting some lame teen drama like Black Sash... :D

    I've seen this a few times before. It was actually pretty good (if it's the one I remember). It gets a lot into the physics of MA and MA weapons.

    Most definitely... :love:

    And I liked the fact that they were using Bagua as the MA for the premise. But holy crap, I haven't seen such bad writing since...well since the last teen melodrama that came out...
