    House of Flying Daggers and Hero are two of the best action movies ever(especially HOFD). :up:

    Ringu and The Eye are pretty effective horror films.

    Ichi the Killer was...unique. I haven't seen Battle Royal yet but I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

    Hmmmm....I have to recommend The Stormriders. It's this purely fantasy fighter film that has some pretty interesting CGI FX in it. One of the highlight's of the movie is when one of the fighters who can control water and all sorts of other liquids rips his broken arm from it's socket and uses his own blood to fight the bad guy. But don't worry. Our hero gets himself an arm transplant from a poor peasant with a spunky daughter later on. Like I said, it's purely insane, fantasy.

    I recommend GMK a little more. GMK is the pinnacle of the Millenium movies.

    Korean swordsman flick, if my memory serves me.

    Don't know how many of you have heard of the movie "The Truth About Jane and Sam". It's one of the best asian movies for me.

    A Korean wuxia fick. It's one of the best things ever. It's like Romeo and Juliet with swordfighting, set in Mongol occupied china, with amazing costumes and visuals and really strong emotion. It's got enough plot for a trilogy, so you have to watch it twice to get everything (I've watched it looooooas of times, and I still pick up new details). It's also based on a comicbook, which explains a lot.

    I prefer it to Hero. Admittedly the swordfighting is no way near as skillful, but it is more exciting. Main character Jinha is one of the coolest movie swordsmen of all time. And he leads the coolest band of ninjas of all time.

    Basically, Bichunmoo is so cool I think I'm going to be sick everywhere.

    I recently got Survive Style 5+ on DVD. Its a great japanese movie directed by a Japanese Commercial Director (so you know it has to be weird). Some reviews have called it Japan's Pulp Fiction.

    Edit: oh yeah, it also stars Tadanobu Asano(Kakihara from Ichi the Killer), Vinnie Jones(He's going to be in X3 as Juggernaught and was in a bunch of Guy Ritchie's movies), and Sonny Chiba(Kill Bill and the Street Fighter) has a funny cameo.

    So, tonight I watched Friend. It's incredible, this movie. I'm really surprised it hasn't garnered more buzz, here in the states. This is such a great film; you've all gotta check it out. Acting, story, characters, drama, everything - it's just so fantastic.
