Martial arts movies

I've recently started taking courses in a film school and I plan to make some short movies on my own. Freddie has talked a lot about the media and how martial arts is misrepresented in the popular culture. So my question is.... Let's say I wanted to make martial arts movies while trying to represent them in the right way, what your advice would be? What kind of movie would you like to see? I believe that movies can be the best platform to promote martial arts, like Bruce Lee did, but it's been done so poorly after him, with a few exceptions. What's your take on this subject?

  2. Well, I've seen some modern movies of martial arts, that revolve more around the topic of how martial arts can help someone become a better person.

    Like a TKD movie called spin kick, or like the forbidden kingdom or even the new karate kid, and a film that a reader on the blog shared called once upon a time in highschool which kinda are movies of guys that haven't had any training in martial arts, and end up becoming better as they progress in the film. I kinda like that idea of martial arts film. And you don't necessarily need a big budget for that kind of concept.

  3. Make a movie with martial arts women
