I love asian cinema. Infact, I think they produce better stuff then Hollywood does. I decided to base my DVD collection around asian cinema.

films i recommend are - Zatochi boxset, Zatochi, Stormrider Trilogy, Sonatine, Island of Greed, Jackie Chan films (espically Project A), Jet Li Films (see my Jet Li thread to see which ones), Roningai

i soo love asian movies particularly HK Martial Arts movies, particularly early Jackie Chan and Anime which is how i first got into asian movies, and of course i Own Battle Royale SE, no japanophile should be without it (i wanna use Kou Shibasaki's legs as a necklace :D >:) LOL )

which for me is the best action movie i have ever seen excluding HK martial arts movies, this blows any american offering out the water with great ease.

It seems everyone who has replied really likes a "sub set" of Asian cinema. Don't see many shout outs for the likes of Chungking Express' date=' In the mood for love, Shower,Not one less, Beijing Bicycle etc. Ironic how you're pimping Asian films over Hollywood's offerings and then proclaiming love for the most lowbrow bang-bang kick-kick fare the continent puts out.[/quote']

 

feh, don't get so arrogant. Just means "the most lowbrow bang-bang kick-kick fare" they release is better then what Hollywood offers :P

What do you mean by low brow?.

Could it possibly be in the same way as everyone else in the world views wrestling?

Because since this is afterall a forum for people who like to watch men throw fake punches at each other and hit people with steel chairs that was a bold statement.

Aisan films, horror & Action in particular are as good (often better) than hollywood ones. I just seen a case in point a film called 'Save the green planet' about a man who may be mad or may be the saviour of the human race. Basically he thinks there are Aliens living on the world & are about to destroy mankind. If your local cinema is showing this film catch it.

Yeah i know i took me ages to try and get them all but it was Supercop that i was most shocked to find out was one of them since it's Michelle Yeoh that stars in it and not Jackie.

Actually Police Story 5 came out this year it has three different names San ging chaat goo si (2004) .... Insp. Wing

... aka New Police Story (2004) (Hong Kong: English title)

... aka Police Story 5 (2004) (Hong Kong: English title)
