also, don't be BOB and recommend movies that everyone already knows.
If anyone here is interested in Asian films:
Once upon a time in China - Jet Li
Once upon a time in China 2 - Jet Li and Donnie Yen with the two fighting each other at the end. Nothing like the lame fight scene in Hero either.
Tai Chi Master - Jet Li
The Legend - Jet Li
Iron Monkey - Donnie Yen, probably his best film before Ip Man
Ip Man - Donnie Yen, best martial arts film to date
Dragon Tiger Gate - Donnie Yen: just slightly over the top, but good
Fist of Fury - Donnie Yen: TV series of Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury
Snake in the Eagles Shadow - old school Jackie Chan
Shaolin vs. Lama - old school kung fu flick
Ninja in the Deadly Traps - what could be cooler than Ninjas attacking the Chinese army?
The Great Jang-Geum - Korean TV series: Broke all records in asia when it came to TV ratings and awards.
