    Default Your favorite Asian movies to date?

    Just saw The Monkey King 2. It was awesome. If I have to make a list of the best Asian movies of all time, it would be:

    1. The Monkey King 2 (2016) Trailer
    2. Mojin: The Lost Legend (2015) Trailer
    3. Kung Fu Cult Master (1993) Watch full HD movie on Youtube

    My list is highly biased towards fantasy/sci-fi stuff. I do like a lot of action and authentic kung fu (mostly non-wire stunts) movies, btw, but not as much as the former...



    Honorable mentions:

    Monkey King: Hero is Back (2015) Clip with song
    Monster Hunt (2015) Trailer
    The Assassin (2015) Trailer
    Jet Li's Hero (2002)
    Cyborg Girl (2008)
    Monkey Magic (2007)
    Karas OVA (2005-2007)

    New addition. Before, I had not a clue who or what Doraemon is, but this movie has won me over:

    #4. Doraemon - Stand by Me (2014). Trailer



    Why I like it: Execution is top notch. The Japanese have proven once again that they are masters of visual appearances. I've never seen such hyper-realistic environments in a CGI cartoon before!

    Btw, the version I watched was 1080p non-YT (non-streaming). If you can find it, it looks the best on a large TV screen...

    I would choose Kung Fu Cult Master (1993). It is really one of my favorite Hong kong film. I find it a great movie. I also like the many humorous scenes.

    My favourite movie series would be "Once Upon A Time in China" series. I disliked the 6th installment, but it is still better than the action movies that we get today. The Wong Fei Hung theme was reinvented where it brought in different themes that were really thought-provoking, but it also had some funny scenes. And the action choreography was superb and most importantly, without CGI.
