It certainly seems to us you are the rubbish you are talking about here.

A piece of rubbish in yo ...

Bruce Lee ... born in San Francisco, in 1940, so that makes him American. Died in Hong Kong in 1973, and buried in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, Washington. First role was an American TV show, called "The Green Hornet". He played the bodyguard, Kato. Movies he made were produced in Hong Kong, a British Colony, and not part of China until 1997. James Coburn, Steve McQueen, and Dan Inosanto were three of his pallbearers because they were close personal friends, not because they were "tough guys".

Therefore, Bruce Lee's movies were NOT "Chinese" movies. The discussion is in reference to movies produced and directed in Mainland China.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

The western world will start watching more Chinese movies just as soon as you make them more worthy to watch. Until then? Too bad, so sad.

Another twist from the Great Twister; the discussion here IS about movies made by Chinese,  and Bruce Lee is one; it's not about nationality but race!

That's their job, twist all the way...

   “Wolf Warrior 2,” which made a massive $874 million in China alone — the second-highest gross in a single market of all time after “The Force Awakens.”...

  Since the late 2000s, the cinemas of mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan have become increasingly intertwined, largely as a result of the exponential economic growth of the People’s Republic, which has led it to become the world’s second largest film market.

Second largest? It might have been the first largest now.

So why bother with the US market? It's Hollywood that has to woo cinemagoers in China.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Poor conversations in the Chinese movies which often go in low pace with little humor sense!
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!

"In some respects, Trump thinks more like a right-leaning Colonel Blimp living in China; he doesn' ...

  Man, you must have mistaken the tea-party movement, which was sponsored by a California-based group supportive of the Republican party  back to 2009, for the alt-right movement, which also began in 2009 and has gained traction among altra-conservatives ever since then. It's not the same.

  The first group consists of populists who inveigh against excessive taxation and government intervention in the private sector while supporting stronger immigration controls; however, it would be wrong to call them white supremacists  largely because most of them are not receptive to the idea that  it's time for America to outgrow cultural diversity.

  The alt-right movement's  white leaders, say, Richard Spencer and Steve Bannon,  are  foam-flecked anti-Semite sorts who are inclined to utter in-your-face remarks against other races, using social media to agitate for White supremacy, just like the KKK did.

  The alt-right movement has unmoored scores of British and American bright minds, who are apprehensive that America runs the risk of being snookered into plumping for nativism or even  ostracism, as opposed to pluralism.

   In a sense, Trump is not a blithering racist  compared with some supporters of the alt-right movement: Trump's family also came to America from Germany and his current wife was not born in America as well. Plus, he wouldn't  have decided to eject Steve Bannon from the white house if he had chosen to   schmear the niminy-piminy  leaders of the alt-right movement up.
