Best Asian Movies

The Top Ten
1 Seven Samurai

I have seen some other good ones like Spirited Away, Akira, A Silent Voice, Hero, and Ran but Seven Samurai is just superior. Unbelievably good movie.

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

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

2 Oldboy

The fight scene alone (all choreographed and no cg or bs camerawork) sets this film apart. Adaptations of manga (generalize that to all of literature) onto the screen can all learn from this film. Overall a cult classic, highly underrated when taking into account how little known it is internationally.

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.

3 Inang Yaya

.. Aside from the noble story, the inspiring story really touches hearts of Filipino and anyone else who knows how to love a beloved one.. By appreciation...

One of the greatest Philippine Movies.
Maricel Soriano ,the lead actress is one or I should say the greatest actress of her generation.

Nice Characters. Many can relate with the movie. It is one of my best movie ever seen. Superb. Very Good.

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.

6 Kung-Fu Hustle

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!

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

7 Late Spring
8 Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
9 Tokyo Story
10 Akira

Hands down, BEST Anime film of all time and likely the most influential. This movie broke Anime to the U.S. and is the main reason we enjoy it so much today!

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.

The Contenders
11 Princess Mononoke

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

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

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 Grave of the Fireflies

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

15 Love Exposure
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 The Life of Oharu
19 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.

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

An all-time favorite. A beautifully made work of art.

20 Sepet
21 Sholay

The greatest movie ever seen in Bollywood. Also Sharukh khan stared Dil wale dulhaniya le jayenge is another greatest movie in India.

22 The Sentimental Swordsman
23 Ugetsu
24 3 Idiots

One of the greatest movie I've ever watched. This movie moved me most, and also the Amir Khan's production, "every child is special."

Best ever movie in the history of Indian cinema... Hats off to Amir khan..

25 Himalaya

A must watch movie... This movie will change the way you look at this world in a very wonderful way. An epic movie that unfortunately did not receive Oscar. However, I am not sad it did not because I undoubtly believe tat this movie just goes beyond Oscars. Amazing movie. Great soundtracks. A very amazing fact about the movie is tat the main character in the movie did not even know he was actually being shot for a movie as he was a just a simple illiterate old villager.
