The first Jackie Chan movie I saw was Rumble in the Bronx. I went with some friends who were more familiar with him and saw it on the big screen. It was fun, but what sold me 100% was the bloopers at the end. The idea that this guy did his own insanely wonderful stunts blew me away! I was hooked from that day forward!

Now, I think I've seen nearly every Jackie Chan movie (even that Karate Kid remake, ugh), read his autobiography, and played the role my friends did for me, many times over...introducing Jackie Chan to the poor unfortunate souls who don't yet know his genius.

Wow Tim, I can't claim such fandom. You excited for The Foreigner? I saw the trailer the same week I was editing the episode, so it was too late to have mentioned it on the podcast.

What are your very favorite Jackie films?
