    Hay Guys :)

    Title tells it. Recently I'm enjoying some good old eastern movies. Can you recommend some authentic, well choreographed movies? Are there even some more recent ones out there I shouldn't miss?

    Greetings :kickass:

    Ip man, Ong bak, bloodsport, lionheart, the redemption, druken master. It´s what I remember now. Ah, a very good one that I saw lately, Undisputed 3.

    Bruce lee filmography is so obvious for martial arts lovers that I didnt even mentioned.

    Thank you :) Yeah I bought the Bruce Lee blu ray collection recently. Those have its naive charme, especially the way of the dragon, but I liked it a lot. Will check out your tipps!

    IP Man's for sure, Ong Back, Fighter In The Wind, The Raid Redemption and Fist of Legend (The Jet Li version) are some of my favourites

    Since you already have Bruce covered I'd add these too

    Legend of Drunken Master (Jackie Chan)
    Hero - Jet Li

    I included original titles too since some English titles are generic or common names. Just to avoid getting the wrong movie :lol:. Some good suggestions here but I'll try to recommend new ones.

    I posted at work but now that I'm at a PC I added some stuff and cleaned this up :p

    Fist of Legend (my favourite Jet Li movie)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110200/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Fearless (aka-Huo Yuanjia) I highly recommend this one, it's one of the better martial art movies I've seen
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0446059/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Iron Monkey - This was one of the first older Martial arts movies I saw, it opened up kung fu movies for me
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108148/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_46

    Legend of The Drunken Master - Jackie Chan in his prime, with lots of humor to keep it interesting.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111512/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Kill Zone SPL (Aka - Saat po long)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478024/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_24

    Fatal contact (aka -Hak Kuan) It's sort of a tournament martial arts flick with some badass and brutal fights
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0813549/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

    Zatoichi - I've only seen the 2003 movie, there are earlier 80's movies too though. It's about a blind swordsman and it's pretty cool.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363226/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Once upon a time in China series - They are a bit outdated now but these launched Jet Li's career. One of the coolest scenes ever in here, a fight that takes place in a room full of ladders.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103285/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Tai Chi Master - A good movie about two students that end up on different sides of a war.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108281/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    New Police Story - Jackie Chan shows some acting chops here
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0386005/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Shinobi - Not related to the Games. I saw it recently on a whim and it turned out to be a really fun movie. Lot's of good scenes and cinematography.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0475723/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    House of Flying Daggers - Thought this is kind of obvious like crouching Tiger or Hero, but just in case since it's good.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0385004/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1


    Honestly most of Jet Li's movies and a lot of Donnie Yen's movies are sure to please.

    Everyone loves Bloodsport (as do I), but Kickboxer is my personal favorite Van Damme movie



    One of my all-time favorite training montages

    It's been a while, but I remember liking Tai-Chi Master and Fong Sai Yuk 1 & 2 (hilarious!).

    Updated my list above. If I think of anything else I'll post it, I'm too lazy to break out my DVD's for more :lol:. I'm actually a little behind on some of the post 2010 movies now maybe I should do a little refresher.

    House of flying daggers and Hero are in my collection, though it seems I have some work to do here...
