    I LOVE MA movies! One of the main reasons I go to DragonCon every year is to get my grubby hands on new Asian releases. I owned Ong Bok a long time before it was released in the states. You have to deal with subtitles as they're never dubbed at that point, but I don't mind.

    No particular order (I'd hate to have to pick one particular favorite, but here are some of my favoriteS )

    -Ong Bok (The dude's half frog, got vicious knees and elbows, and he does his own awesome stunts! )

    -Azumi 1 (Cute chics with swords...sigh...nuff said. But if you haven't seen it...the first major scene will really mess with your head.)

    -Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Admit guys...you cried at the end didn't you... )

    -Enter the Dragon (Hey...it's Bruce Lee. And it's got a cool arch villain with a real iron hand...or sometimes it's a claw...or other weapon...that's cool!)

    -The Perfect Weapon (No...the film is not sped up...that is all Jeff Speakman! This movie made me want to learn kenpo.)

    You only asked for 5 so I'll stop there..though it's killing me to do so lol
    There are sooo many more great Martial Arts flix.. =)

    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.

    Remo: Chuin sometimes you are incredible.

    Chuin: No I am better than that.

    I love this movie but consider it to be more of a comedy than martial arts flick.

    I'm stunned that nobody picked "Kung Pao, Enter The Fist".
