Title says it.
bring'em! Popcorn is ready!
9 & 1/2 Ninjas was bad yet somehow good at the same time.
No Surrender, No Retreat.
Tang Soo Do kid crazy over Bruce Lee is trained by his ghost then beats up Van Damme
the American Ninja series
Enter the Ninja
anything with Chuck Norris
anything with Steven Segal, esp. Exit Wounds *snicker snicker*
anything with Van Dam
I need to ammend the rules a little:
Really good fight scenes but questionable story....
or really cheap productions. The more obscure the better!
From the kiddy section:
3 little ninjas
3 little ninjas kick back.
I recently had the misfortune of paying all of 65 cents for Don Wilson's Futurekick on DVD.
It's worth more like 25 cents.
The original Mortal Kombat. Loved it as a kid and watched it the other day without many expectations but was pretty impressed. Not bad action at all.
Kung Fu Hustle. (just good stuff)
I love seeing these old threads for the first time.
Could anything possibly match....Gymkata?
Brandon lee in both rapid fire and showdown in little Tokyo. Terrible movies, both, but I will still watch them.

Does Barry Gordy's Enter The Dragon count?
Crippled Masters, the name speaks for itself.
I remember one called kung fu mahjongg or something like that.

My vote also has to go with Gymkata, followed closely by most Steven Seagall movies.
Five Fingers of Death. If I remember it correctly, there's a fight scene where a guy gets his eyes gouged out and they showed two ping-pong balls bouncing on the floor.
It's "the Warriors" in a dystopian modern Scotland. Gangs have formed around martial arts styles (really). The guys we're supposed to root for supposedly are TKD stylists. Watch and you tell me how much of that is TKD.
Dominic Monaghan is in it. Yes, that dude from "Lost" and "Lord of the Rings". Also stars Kevin McKidd as the big bad.
I cannot recommend this film highly enough for the general martial arts hijinks that ensue. Really awful, but hilariously so.
You are now all officially required to watch it.
I agree with most everything above: Gymkata, Chuck Norris, Steven Segal, the last dragon, the American Ninja series.. .
A couple I would add:
Jeff Speakman's "The Perfect Weapon"
Cynthia Rothrock's China O'Brien series
and maybe Ernie Reyes Jr's "Surf Ninjas"
Oh, and how could I forget Kurt Russell's "Big Trouble in Little China"
You all saying Steven Seagal are being sacrilegious towards my faith! Anyway, what other man could carry off a ponytail in a pool room with such panache
How about Road House with Patrick Swayze.123
