    My favourites:

    Bichnumoo - Warrior of Virtue (I love this film!)
    So Close (imagine if Charlie's Angels was made into a really cool movie)
    Returner (incredibly watchable)
    Shaolin Soccer (hysterically funny)
    The Ring (most influential horror movie for the 2000s, I know it was made in the 90's)
    Casshern (incredible)
    Azumi (not very good actually)
    Battle Royale (thrilling)
    Princess Blade (like Azumi should be)
    Musa the Warrior (an epic to put Hollywood to shame)

    And two to avoid...
    Volcano High (a dull collection of CGI and attempted comedy)
    Naked Weapon (really, really poor)

    In the climax, the heroine balances on the bad guy's head. While he's standing up.

    !!!! :confused: :mad:

    :up: Duel to the Death. From the early 80's, but some of the best sword fights you will ever see.

    Shaving is the least of the problems...atleast for the one I saw. *shudders*

    I forgot about So Close, a friend told me to check it out a long time ago and I never got around to it. I need to hunt it down.

    I remember I had to watch Shaolin Soccer without it being Subed or Dubbed. I just found out they were all brothers. :(

    I used to like it dubbed, but they sometimes do a pretty horrible job. Volcano High for example, maybe other people liked it, but I just can't handle lil' john coming out of an asian guys body. Its just wrong. For me, its like how you said you feel satisified after watching an asian movie. Well I get the same feeling when I watch it Subbed.
