The Greatest Movie Stunts of All Time

View a larger version on our Facebook Page to fully enjoy the bone-crunching action!

We've picked the greatest stunts in movie history and put them all together in one death-defying, jaw-dropping video for you to enjoy! If you have a favorite that we didn't show, leave a comment! Chances are we wanted to include it but had to narrow our list down.

This compilation doesn't showcase complicated fight choreography or movements, but celebrates big, single-event, one-take gags, car stunts and falls. For instance, Tony Jaa doing a spinning leg kick isn't on the list, but Tony Jaa doing a spinning leg kick with his legs set on fire is definitely on the list!

We avoided any CGI and steered clear of scenes with a lot of edits, camera trickery, excessive wirework and any effects-enhanced stunts. We gave extra points to stunts that further a story or have some emotional resonance in the movie – like Toshiro Mifune's horse stunt in Hidden Fortress. It might not be as spectacularly death defying as the other stunts, but it is an incredible moment in the film and you can see that it is actually Mifune performing the stunt himself.

P.S. It's amazing how clever the Roger Moore era Bond films were in devising show-stopping stunts, and of course Jackie Chan's creative stunts are legend.

Seven Spies from Hong Kong

SEVEN SPIES FROM HONG KONG – not an actual movie, but a new t-shirt design from Shelf Life. If it was a movie, it would probably look something like this:

This is actually an older design that we distressed a little more and printed on the brand new Gildan 100% ringspun cotton tee - It's a great, soft tee with the American Apparel feel but a much better fit - not as long, and not as tapered. We'll be printing on these a lot more in future!

Lebron James is Witless

These aren't Shelf Life Tees, but I had to post them here due to my lingering disgust with the way Lebron James treated Cleveland and pretty much the entire viewing public with his narcissistic "Decision."


(that's a stock market listing showing LBJ down 100% where the Nike swoosh would be)
