Best Asian Movies

The Top Ten

1 Seven Samurai

This is one of the greatest movies ever! A total epic and should be #1 and much higher on greatest of all time list!

One of the best movies from Akira Kurosawa

Toshiro Mifune is a complete tour-de-force as Kikuchiyo in one of the best movies ever made.

2 Oldboy

So powerful it will haunt you - nomercyz182

Engaging from start to finish. There is no other movie like it. Great acting, great story, and great directing.

No film has actually surpassed this film from South Korea in terms of technicality and story. Deserves a 10/10.

Best movie of all time

4 Ikiru

Watanabe here reminded me of my grandfather.

5 Battle Royale

The best thing about this film is not the daring, unflinching, unapologetic, raw brutality or the courage it took to make. The best thing is that this film forces you to ask yourself what you would do if you had to kill (perhaps some of those closest to you) to survive. Would you cower in fear? Would you trust in others? Or would you forsake everyone and carve a path of carnage through them? That question and the way each member of the ensemble cast answers it make this an incredibly important film.

Battle Royale is a Japanese film that needs no remake, because director Kinji Fukasaku made it so realistic that after watching the movie you will imagine yourself part of the battle... "Life is a Game"

Great movie with awesome characters. The movie is very violent and twisted, but it's nothing that bothers me. Definitely a must-watch, especially if you've read the manga or novel! - sockersoppa

A modern classic... It neither perverts the novel nor eclipses it; the two are equally thrilling versions of the same basic premise, but with very different themes. The Hunger Games sucks compared to this.

6 Kung-Fu Hustle

It makes me happy whenever I watch this movie.. I love stephen chow

The great Stephen Chow, like watching exaggerated live anime but it doesn't look cheap. LAugh trip

A great comedy with eye catching computer works!

Not chow's bet movie, but his best known movies

7 Late Spring
8 Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

its a household name and a great movie - Okami

9 Akira

Maybe the best animated movie of all time, and way a head for its time. Wicked picture, story and soundtrack! Just an all time great movie.

10 Tokyo Story

The Contenders

11 Princess Mononoke

Miyazaki's film... Its all I can say

Should be closer to one, better than most of these annoying kung fu flicks. I love everything Miyazaki (also like Spirited Away and Nausicaa)

12 Rashomon

Directed by the great Akira Kurosawa, this may be the first movie to tell a story by showing different versions of the same event, as different characters saw it.

Only intelligent people choosing this. Maybe that's why it so less

13 Enter the Dragon

All time classic movie featuring the legend Bruce Lee.

14 Love Exposure

4 hours of awesome scenes, I love that it has every slice of life, Love,Comedy.Religion,Friendship,Family and Lust.

15 Grave of the Fireflies

This is the must watch movie, I would rate it 9/10.

One of the best film animation I have ever seen

One of the saddest anti war movies ever made

16 Hero

Great film starring Zang Ziyi. If you loved the famous trilogy of Zhang Yimou you're gonna love this.

17 The Human Condition III: A Soldier's Prayer
18 House of Flying Daggers

It is strikingly beautiful; the bamboo forest is by far the most outstanding viewing in the movie. The actors are very interesting as is the culture.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Visually pleasant to watch

Intense and beautiful. I love visually striking movies and this is one of the best I've ever seen. Ziyi Zhyang is always stunning!
