Green Room. I had WAY too much fun with that film not to have it be my favorite. Kinda like Whiplash last year.

The Crow - Hadn't seen it in over 10 years. Such a cool freaking movie. Sad that we didn't get to see where Brandon would have gone with his acting.

Sicario - Gets better with each viewing. One of my fave pictures of the last few years.

I'm a sucker for cheesy action movies as much as I am serious cinema. I just picked up a Jean Claude Van Damme and Jackie Chan set, so I've been guilty pleasuring it up to:

Sudden Death
The Quest
Timecop
Hard Target
Lionheart
Supercop
Rumble in the Bronx
Project A
Project A2
Operation Condor
Operation Condor 2

I'm on the hunt for Jackie Chan's older pre-Hollywood breakout Hong Kong movies. Those are tough to find.

Only one I've seen is Drunken Master and it is superior to anything he's done in America.

Drunken Master is a definite classic. The ones I mentioned above (Supercop, Rumble in the Bronx, the Project A movies, and the Operation Condor movies) are right around when he broke into the Hollywood mainstream (Rumble in the Bronx was made specifically for that purpose), but they are still Honk Kong action flicks, so they are worth your time. Supercop especially...it's technically Police Story 3, but the US only got the third one so it's known as Supercop here. Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh are an insane stuntperson match made in heaven. All the Police Stories are also worth your time. Others HK Jackie Chan movies worth your time that are easy enough to find stateside:

Master with Cracked Fingers
Dragon Fist
The Legend of Drunken Master (it's a "sequel" to Drunken Master)
Crime Story
The Protector

As you can tell, I'm a big Jackie Chan fan.

Oh yeah, I always forget Rumble in the Bronx, Police Story, and Operation Condor were Chinese. They're better than a lot of his later stuff, but I still prefer my kung fu movies not to be quite so Americanized. That's one big reason I'm actually not such a big Chan fan. That and him constantly doing stunts while fighting peons is not as interesting and fun to me as him fighting one guy who can actually fight back.

His American movies are still generally better than Jet Li's though. Woof. Some of those are just atrocious, though I do have a soft spot for Kiss of the Dragon.

Yeah, he uses his opponents as a set up for crazy stunts that also utilize the props and scenery, which I think makes him unique. He is also one of the few kung fu actors to show that he feels pain, which helps humanize him while he's doing these insane stunts. It all depends on my mood. When I want kung fu where it's good guy vs. the big baddie, I go for Bruce Lee.

And I agree on Jet Li - that guy wants to be Jackie Chan. It's never going to happen, though.

Yeah, Jet Li isn't unlikeable or anything, but he's really just a pair of really fast feet. I ****ing love his Chinese movies though. Once Upon a Time in China and that Bruce Lee remake he did are fantastic.

I need to go look up Tony Jaa again. Ong-Bak 1 and The Protector were two of the best modern martial arts movies I've seen.
