Hi!

I created another kewl thread for you guyz. I'll post here the titles of the, in my view, best Asian moviez ever (mainly Chinese, HK, Taiwnese and the like moviez, only a few Japanese and Korean movies (I think you already saw them- and I somehow like the others more(though, I love JP moviez))).
I think they all are "must have seen" moviez; you won't regret to have rent them from your favorite DVD/tapes store.

I'll later edit the posts again to add stuff like production year, actors, information's and pics to them. I'll also add in which language you should watch them (like HK moviez: "Should I watch them in Mandarin or Cantonese, huh"?)
EDIT: You should always buy the Original Hong Kong/Chinese DVD'S of the movies if possible. Hong Kong DVD are mostly region-free DVD's, and Chinese DVD are Region 3 DVD's. All of them should have at least English subtitles.

BEST ASIAN MOVIEZ EVER (I still work on the list- be patience)

CHUNKING EXPRESS [Chong qing sen lin](Hong Kong (HK, 1994))
Directed by: Kar Wai Wong
Starring: Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Brigitte Lin, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Faye Wong, Valerie Chow, Jen Jinquan

One of the best moviez of the world. If you haven't seen it yet, you must have lived in a cave for the last 10years. Go and rent it!

FALLEN ANGELS [Dou luo tian shi] (HK, 1995)

Oh man, this movie is awesome. The actors had no script so everything what they say is REAL- no stupid text, all real. It's bloody, sad, kewl, erotic, funny, have kewl songs and GREAT actors- one of the best moviez ever, I tell ya. By the way, it's the 3rd episode of the the love stories of his other movie, Chunking Express.

For a few months now, I fill myself with buncha korean movies (I advice you to take a look at this site http://www.calorifix...eil/accueil.php which offer a incredible mass of quality subtitles but also link for movie reviews, I'm logged as a translator but haven't make a translation yet... it should come up in a while).
I'm not very learned in chines and HK movies but I loved wong kar wai's In the mood for love.

NICE ASIAN MOVIEZ (not as good as the moviez from the 1st list, but worth a look if you're interessted in Asian moviez):

A MAN CALLED HERO (HK, 1999)
Presented by: Raymond Chow, John Chu
Origin story by: Ma Wing Shing
Directed by: Andrew Lau
Starring: Ekin Cheng, Shu Qi, Kristy Yang, Nicholas Tse
Story: Wait till I edited the posts.
Original lang.: Cantonese

You should get the Hong Kong "Special Cut" version of this movie, it has some deleted scenes and stuff like that. And it's a 'region free' DVD. The original language of this movie is Cantonese- be sure to watch it in this language.

Download here the recorded opening theme of the movie (MP3, 1,47Mb)- I'll delete this after 2days from the server (I've deleted the Dawn of War Intro movie for that).
If you want to see a movie of the (kewl) Intro, just ask for it and I'll record one.
EDIT: Translation of the 1st two sentences you hear: "I were born under the star of death. I'm destined to be alone forever."

Ha ha. However, it's a nice movie, worth a look. The Special Cut version is little longer as the version they rated.

However, you're right. In my view, it's a nice movie, but not as good as "THE STORM RIDERS". Some people like the movie, other's don't.
But I'll delete it from the list.... but you should rent it anyway. The end of the movie is simply awesome- they destroy the WHOLE Statue of Liberty while they fight to it's feet, in it, and ON it. Really kewl. And the music is often really nice too. I like it, but it has many parts which I don't like too (the second fight with the Japanese peeps is just boring...).
If you want to check the other moviez, sure, go straight ahead. You'll see that they r the best ya can find (as I said, except A man called Hero).
