    Those with a good memory will remember last year's Top 10 Asian Movie Vote.

    It's that time again! If you post your 10 favourite Asian films (or Top 5), I'll collate the votes and come up with a list.

    Rather than go with a point scoring system in Round 1, just let me know your Top 10. Once I have enough movies, we'll fine tune things in Round 2.

    To start the ball rolling, my Top 10 (at this moment in time) is as follows:


    Evil Dead Trap
    Audition
    Ichi The Killer
    Battle Royale
    Ju-On: The Grudge
    Ju-On: The Grudge 2
    Ring
    Uzumaki
    The Eye
    Tell Me Something


    What's your Top 10 Asian Horror?
    Let the voting begin!

    Round 2 begins in, say, 2 weeks time!

    This is harder than hell, as I adore many, many Asian horror films. They're my favorite type of genre films these days. Anyway, the first two are pretty interchangeable, as I love them pretty much equally.

    Uzumaki
    Kairo
    Onibaba
    Audition
    Evil Dead Trap
    Suicide Club
    Cure
    Dark Water
    Save the Green Planet
    Ju-on: The Curse

    Guys, I'd originally intended it for Top 10 Asian Horror but the forum's open to "other pleasures" as I know that there's a lot of interest in anime, action, etc.

    If anybody wishes to edit their entries to add some "other" asian movies before the closing date - there's about 2 weeks left before I close this thread and we move onto Round 2 - that's fine.

    I may decide to have 2 categories in Round 2:

    Asian Horror
    Asian Non-Horror

    What do you think? I think we need a guide to the definitive Asian horror movies and it would be a shame to have some gems knocked out by The Killer, etc.

    A mix of horror, suspense and action all recent a few I saw in Japan last week.

    ONG BAK: Muay Thai Warrior: Tony Ja, who may be the best martial artist out there. Full contact with no wire work. If this guy lives through the filming of his next movie... I'll be surprised. Trailer can be viewed at http://www.apple.com/jp/quicktime/trailers/gaga/mach_large.html

    KOMA: Great lovers revenge film out of Hong Kong. Good story and acting with some above average twists.

    OLDBOY: I can't say enough about this film. At this point in time my best film of 2004.

    AZUMI: Another manga inspired film that turns out to be a great action/adventure/samurai film. Will worth the price of the Japan disc, but I believe a more reasonable R3 version is available now.

    HYPNOSIS: Another great one out of Japan with some above average death scenes.

    GOJOE: Samurai looks for an acient demon that is roaming Japan chopping of the heads of everyone. Look for the 139 minute full version of the film.

    GOZU: A film all PETA members must see. Miike's yakuza world gone wild yet again.

    FULL METAL YAKUZA: Robocop done Miike style. What else needs to be said!


    As an extra some of my films to be avoided at all costs.

    Battlefield Baseball
    The Princess Blade
    Battle Royale II
    Aragami

    These may not be necessarily horror, but close enough to count...

    Woman In The Dunes
    Tetsuo
    Uzumaki
    Untold Story
    Oldboy
    Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance
    Hypnotist
    Kwaidan
    Suicide Club
    Human Pork Chop


    Tough...I don't know...
