Old Boy (Korea, 2003), which has also found it's way over here to America and Europe. It has insane amounts of violence and an awesome, confusing and dark story, and that combined with a rather open ending makes it one of my favourite movies, asian or not.

Il Mare is a really good Korean film. You might know it as the inferior Western remake titled The Lakehouse.

16 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-10-27 06:38 ID:gbk2vbHa

Just saw love and honor the non related trilogy to hidden blade and twilight samurai and thought it was as good as the others. The series centers around lower level samurai life.

"Infernal Affairs". The Hong Kong original of "The Departed".
Trilogy btw.

20 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-11-10 09:53 ID:Q8ROdj+x

Oh and "Shinobi" as my Japanese film.
Plot kind of falters in the second half of the movie, but it's still damn cool.

21 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-11-26 21:15 ID:gZ9cXnus

Cave of the Yellow Dog features a Mongolian Nomadic family with a cute little girl who wants to keep a stray dog against her father's wishes. Nothing horrible happens. She is really cute. It is my favourite film right now. Did I mention she is cute?

some of my recent favorites:

"Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" - if you like badass korean girls, lots of gore, directed by the cat who did Oldboy, so you know its really nuts.

Just watched Koi no Mon, absurd, but hilarious.

Also, watched death note 1 & 2 a couple of nights ago (havent read any of the manga, so I actually really enjoyed the films)

Watch Vital, it's kinda weird but I really liked it.

Lust Caution was so-so. Felt like they put in too much unneeded scenes.

Try Muay Thai (the recently rls'd one). There's a custom eng sub on ADC. It'll definitely change the way you think of Thai movies.

The Sympathy Trilogy: Sympathy for Mr Vengeance, Oldboy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. Awesome movies.

I'll tell you what NOT to watch-- Jisatsu Sa-kuru, Suicide Club.

I watched that tonight and it was AWFUL. There were a few scenes that were done extremely well, but the movie as a whole was terrible.

Pornostar: Not actually about a pornostar. It's about a guy who seems to have no emotions outside of cold rage getting involved with some yakuza. Contains one of the most startling scenes of violence I've ever seen.

Devils on the Doorstep: Absolutely fucking awesome Chinese black comedy/anti-war film. Set in Japanese occupied China at the end of WWII, it's about some villagers who are made to look after two prisoners - a Japanese soldier and a Chinese interpreter. Really stylised, so maybe not for everybody.

I watched Vengeance is Mine a couple of days ago. The main character was not the kind of character I'd expected him to be, and was much more interesting for it. Great film, with a different kind of feel to it than any other film about a serial killer I've seen.

Also, there was a korean movie I once watched, it was called 9 iron or 12 iron or something simliar. I couldn't find anything about it so I'm probably getting the name wrong. ( '・ω・)

My Sassy Girl, I am surprise this has not been optioned for an American remake. I would love to see someone like Seth Rogan in this hilarious romantic comedy.

I haven't bothered watching it, because i don't want to be blasphemous to the true sassy girl and ruin the memories i have of watching it
