As for Bloodsport, I loved it back in the day and also grew up with it and the likes of Kickboxer. But I watched it again by chance recently. Lets just say the years have not been kind, not at all. A proper cheese fest Still some good bits but overall, comical.
Another one I used to love but havent seen for years is No Retreat, No Surrender. Starring Van Damme as a bad guy in one of his early roles. This was poorly done back then, but still great to watch. God knows what it would be like now.
Anyone remember The Last Dragon? Cant remember the plot anymore but it involved the characters glowing while they fought.
Overall, I dont think Enter the Dragon will ever be bettered, it still looks good now, especially compared to the 80's and early 90's stuff. Not bad considering it came out in 1973.

I'll just throw in another few films that i didn't see, both from Donnie Yen.
Mismatched Couples & Flash Point.
Mismatched Couples is one of Donnies earlier efforts and is a bit quirky but if you like 80's Hk Cinema its well worth checking out.
Flash Point is more modern but has great action and a good musical score.
Both worth watch.
I'd be interested to see what you's think.
