Chinese History Through Kung Fu Movies TImeline

So now you can try and check out the unique and interesting periods of Chinese history through kung fu movies. This list was done a couple of years ago but most likely wasn't seen by many recent members. We're also going to try and add to it more as even just the last three in terms of TVB and Shaw releases have been tremendous. Credit first of course.
