    Default What's y'all's favorite Hong Kong Movie?

    I became a huge fan of Hong Kong Cinema 9 years ago, since then, I've built up a huge collection of them.
    I wanna know which Hong Kong flick is your favorite?

    In order:

    Bullet In The Head
    Hard Boiled
    Heroic Trio
    Swordsman 2
    Chinese Ghost Story
    Once Upon a Time in China 2

    I had a hard time narrowing it down to just one because of all the sub genres involved: Wuxia, Cop flicks,Triad flicks, Horror and so on....

    Ha, should have plenty since I lived there for so long, but only a few come to mind:

    Drunken Master 2
    Enter the Dragon
    Heroes of the East

    As an aside, if you ever go to Hong Kong, take a stroll a long Avenue of Stars. Tons of hand prints from Hong Kong and China's best movie stars.

    Rumble in the Bronx is considered a HK movie?

    I don't always specifically know what films I've seen that are "Hong Kong" films but of the ones I know my favourite is Infernal Affairs (2002). So much better than the Departed (2006).
    "We are Shakespeare. We are Michelangelo. We are Tchaikovsky. We are Turing. We are Mercury. We are Wilde. We are Lincoln, Lorca, Leonardo da Vinci. We are Alexander the Great. We are Fredrick the Great. We are Rustin. We are Addams. We are Marsha! Marsha Marsha Marsha! We so generous, we DeGeneres. We are Ziggy Stardust hooked to the silver screen. Controversially we are Malcolm X. We are Plato. We are Aristotle. We are RuPaul, god dammit! And yes, we are Woolf."
