    You've gotta be kidding....

    "Comrades, Almost a Love Story" was only rated as number 28....

    That movie should be in at least the top 10.

    Seeing only 25 out of 103, I should be ashamed of myself.

    But then again some of these movies are rare to find. Besides of all Michael Hui and Fruit Chan movies to represent, they have to choose the ones I didn't see. And another thing...NO Sammo Hung movie in the list!!!!????

    Some that I think should've been in the list:

    A Moment of Romance (Benny Chan)
    Pedicab Driver (Sammo Hung)
    Prodigal Son(Sammo Hung)
    A Nite In Mongkok (Derek Yee)
    All About Ah Long (Johnnie To)
    The Lunatics (Derek Yee)
    Hard-Boiled (John Woo)
    Mr. Vampire (Ricky Lau)
    Young and Dangerous the Prequel (Andrew Lau)
    Chicken and Duck Talk (Michael Hui)
    Bride with White Hair (Ronny Yu)
    Hong Kong 1941 (Leung Po-chi)
    Longest Summer (Fruit Chan)
    Bullets Over Summer (Wilson Yip)
    Jiang Hu the Triad Zone (Dante Lam)

    the titles in the list are mostly award winners and landmark films.

    A Moment of Romance (Benny Chan) - I don't think this film was very landmark
    Pedicab Driver (Sammo Hung) - not landmark or very special
    Prodigal Son(Sammo Hung) - this one really should have been in there
    A Nite In Mongkok (Derek Yee) - too recent
    All About Ah Long (Johnnie To) - I was surprised this one wasn't included
    The Lunatics (Derek Yee) - never heard of it
    Hard-Boiled (John Woo) - not as important as The Killer or ABT
    Mr. Vampire (Ricky Lau) - should have a place in the top 100
    Young and Dangerous the Prequel (Andrew Lau) - probably belongs in the list
    Chicken and Duck Talk (Michael Hui) - never heard of it
    Bride with White Hair (Ronny Yu) - definitely should be in it
    Hong Kong 1941 (Leung Po-chi) - haven't seen it
    Longest Summer (Fruit Chan) - probably not very important
    Bullets Over Summer (Wilson Yip) - never seen it
    Jiang Hu the Triad Zone (Dante Lam) - not really important

    "Comrades, Almost a Love Story" was only rated as number 28....

    That movie should be in at least the top 10.
    I don't think it revolutionized HK cinema in any way. Definitely not top 20 material historically. the top 10 titles are definitely more important.

    i can't believe the movie Hero (yingxiong) is not on this Top 100 list.
    Don't kid yourself. Hero is not very important or very good (it wasn't the 1st artsy wuxia film, and it wasn't the best objectively speaking).

    Pharmacy NOT Chemist.

    Chemist = Who Knows! Who CARES!
