The Bruce Lee films are a given of course:

ENTER THE DRAGON
THE CHINESE CONNECTION
FISTS OF FURY
GAME OF DEATH

Also really like some of the Bruce Li films, cheesy as they often are:

BLIND FIST OF BRUCE
IMAGE OF BRUCE LEE
FIST of FURY III
BRUCE LI THE INVINCIBLE


Great and fun Jackie Chan pics:

TO KILL WITH INTRIGUE (1977)
THE DRUNKEN MASTER (1978)
FANTASY MISSION FORCE (1982)
POLICE STORY (1985)
ARMOUR OF GOD (1987)
POLICE STORY 2 (1988)
ARMOUR OF GOD II (1991)
POLICE STORY III (1992)
THE LEGEND OF THE DRUNKEN MASTER (1994)
RUMBLE IN THE BRONX (1995)
MR. NICE GUY (1997)
WHO AM I? (1998)

Also really enjoy the following most of which are terrific dubbed chop-socky primo grade cheese and most actually have darn good Kung Fu fighting to boot.

SHAOLIN CHASTITY KUNG FU (1981)
SECRET OF THE SHAOLIN POLES (1977)
KILLER PRIEST (1977)
THE SHAOLIN INVINCIBLES (1977)
INCREDIBLE KUNG FU MISSION (1982)

Just a great film:

ZATOICHI (1964)

   Ahh.  A thread I can sink my teeth into.
   I got REALLY bored with American cinema recently and decided to try some of the newer Asian films that were coming out at the time.
   I found Shinobi: Heart Under Blade (the live action adaptation to an anime of the same title) to be entertaining.
   Then I discovered Bey Logan's Dragon Dynasty Collection.
   This collection has either introduced or reintroduced me to some of the finest cinematic efforts to hit any screen from all areas of the "Oriental" region of Asia.  Korean films, Thai films (Born to Fight and The Protector being my favorites from there).  A ton of Chinese films, Japanese films, Basically anywhere with an "accepted" form of martial art.
  From classic films of the Shaw Brother's age such as 36th Chamber of Shaolin and Come Drink With Me, to newer films like Hard Boiled and The Protector.
   Over all, I think that Asian cinema has vast, untapped potential. 
   The actors seem to genuinely believe in the project and role before them.  The crew is almost fanatically dedicated, and the stunt men, especially in the new Thai films are clinically insane.  For proof of that, watch the fight scene in the fiend command center between the hero and the #1 henchman in Born to Fight.
   As for a list of favorites?  Wow.  The prerequisites have already been named.  Any of Master Bruce's films and the 5 Deadly Venoms, along with the classic Shaw Brothers films, but as for the new stuff...It's got to be Seven Swords, Fatal Contact, and City of Violence
   Thai Chi Master with Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh has some awesome fight scenes and some great comedy, but the editing was somewhat lacking because there are times when the wires are plainly visible.
   Kill Zone with Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung showcases an amazing array of MMA and Wu Shu from the three characters involved, and aside from an ending that made me go "Man, thats f@@ked up", was a great film.
   I mentioned in another thread, a film called Dog Bite Dog.  For sheer ferocity of fighting, I don't think this film has many competitors.  The creators draw upon current political conflicts of the region, as well as the standard good guy bad guy thing.  Also with a f@@ked up ending, I don't think it's that different from most American films in content.
   I could go on forever on this topic, but I think I made my point.

The 36 Chambers a.k.a. Master Killer is a fantastic movie about the training of monks. It gets a little supernatural at times but it mostly focuses on intense training sequences. It's title was used as the title of the 1993 Wu Tang Clan album "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)" The 80's Jackie Chan films are among the best, both as martial arts films but also as standalone films. Project A and Project A2 are outstanding. The 5 Deadly Venoms has been mentioned already and it is good

On a side note the first kung fu film I ever watched was 18 Weapons of Kung Fu. Has anybody else seen it?

My favorite martial arts movies are the cinematic masterpieces The Crippled Masters (1979), Black Belt Jones (1974), and Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (1991).

I should mention one of my favorite youtube channels, if you're a fan of bad dubbing, Chop-Sucky

Iron Flag, a great Venoms flick, with the classic "but still" dubbing

Actually, I grew up watching alot of the Bruceploitation films starring Bruce Li. I actually liked alot of them, especially Bruce Lee: the Man, the Myth. But I will agree with alot of the other mentions as well. Master of the Flying Guillotine was big for me when I was a boy.

I have to agree here. Many of these Brucespoitation films remain my favorites today, along with of course the Master and creator of the genre, Bruce Lee himself.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
