Chinese/Hk Films: Your Recommendations?

Post by taders » Jan 26th, '07, 04:08

Hi,
I looked through 15 pages and can't seem to find anything like this topic. I don't really have much knowledge about Chinese/Hong Kong cinema, beside the Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Stephen Chow stuff. So what films do you reccomend, I'm open to anything. Thanks. :salut: :D

Well since there are a lot of movies it would be good to know what u like.

Genre? do u want the newest or also some older movies (pre-2000 for example)?

For Hong Kong films, Rob-B-Hood staring Jackie Chan and Louis Koo
I loved that movie <3

I never was an action fan but I really liked Dog Bite Dog too, staring Edison Chen and Sam Lee.
I thought the movie was really meaningful.

I still have yet to watch A Melody Looking staring those Amusic people.

I like comedies. :D

I've seen ...
Shaoilin Soccer (my fave)
Kung Fu Hustle
Drink Drank Drunk
Most of Jackie Chan films
Most of Jet Lee films
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

(I really like kung fu!) :w00t:

Basically most films avaliable to American media, I want to watch films people in Hong Kong watch. I like the cultured stuff. :thumleft:


Haha I need to update my avi, I don't even remember who that is anymore lol.

Men Suddenly In Black

It's unique and funny.

-Edit-
Oh, I forgot to mention the Infernal Affairs trilogy and Running out of Time. These are really great movies.

IMO, most of the recent high-profile films are CRAP. That includes The Banquet and Curse of the Golden Flower. Even though I'm a huge fan of Initial D manga/anime, the live-action movie sucks. I'm glad no one mentioned it. :roll

I really enjoyed watching Stephen Fung's "Enter the Phoenix" movie. I think he directs better than his acting or singing for that fact. Now I just gotta see some of his magic tricks. :lol Anyway, it's a fun comedy and stars Daniel Wu! :P

Some of the movies I have seen (both China and Hong Kong) are:

-Together
(He Ni Zai Yi Qi - ?????) : one of the best movies I've ever seen. Its musically based - about a young boy who plays the violin.
-Infernal Affairs I, II and III (???)
-Love on a Diet (I thought it was funny, but I'm not a fan of Andy Lau)
-House of Flying Daggers

I really recommend the first and second ones on the list.

If you like Triad/Cops genre anything directed by Johnnie To and you can't wrong. Look him up on IMDB.
