Bad Taste & Brain Dead - Before Peter Jackson got famous and funny as hell.

Dead Mans Shoes - Low budget English film.  Absolutely brilliant, one of my favorites.
Advice worth what you just paid for it.

_tom_: there aren't many modern hollywood classics anymore - i agree that fight club is one of them.

You beat me to it, Wez!  Infernal Affairs is much better - doesn't have the silly plot contrivances and it's much more ambiguous about who's good and who's bad.  Plus no ridiculous Jack Nicholson showboating.

Ten Tigers Of Kwantung
Challenge Of The Masters
Instructors Of Death
Shaolin Master Killer
Return of the Shaolin Master Killer
8 Diagram Pole Fighter
Shaolin Challenges Ninja

Quote from: 7thSon


Before the Devil Knows You're Dead - Not too bad actually
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - Great recomendation, want to see it
Rescue Dawn - Christian Bale? good long tale I believe
No Country For Old Men - Preeetty nice
There Will Be Blood - already commented :P
Sunshine - yawns...
The Fountain - clever story!
Eagle vs Shark - Lol, sorry, just didn't enjoy it
This is England - odd story, but good still



You have a lot of good ones in there, shall try and check out the rest of them,  I am fine with straying away from the scene, but as long as it doesn't take too long with low seeds. And aXXo for example gives regular updates, so I am happy with it.
I think you have listed some of the best recent films there anyway!

Also on Hong Kong front, a man cannot possibly go wrong with anything that involves the names Chow Yun-Fat and John Woo on the same DVD case.

ToneMonkey is also correct. Three copper-bottomed classics right there.

As for a few more...

Breaker Morant
He Died With a Felafel in his Hand
Me, You and Marley
Boondock Saints/Overnight (good seperately, dynamite together)
Haute Tension.
Evil, Evil, Evil...

Hard Boiled
God of Gamblers
God of Gamblers 2

Those are my favourite Woo/Fat films.

And if you're a pure Chow Yun Fat fan, and don't mind subtitles, definitely watch All About of Ah Long about a motorcycle racer (Cantonese title is A Lang De Gu Shi).
