    I only remember two HK movies that had the name of "Eastern Invincible"
and both of them were based on Jin Yong's novel. Besides, there's others like
Dragon Gundam Pilot Sai Sici's Shin Ryuusei Kochouken(Real Meteor Butterfly
Arrow) which I believe is taken from the name of Gu Long's Novel(and Movie)
Meteror Butterfly Sword, Which would be Ryuusei Kochouken in japanese, since
the word for Sword and Arrow sounds the same.
