The Top 50 Hong Kong Movies of the Decade (#40-31)

you_shoot_i_shoot

In case you’ve missed part one, we continue our run down of the top 50 movies from this past decade. So far, no shocking responses, no death threats or fan mail! As stated before;

This list is compiled of the best movies from this decade, not the best movies I’ve seen this decade, so this list will not include Oscar winning classics such as “Who am I?” or “Those handsome riders of those Storm, cloud, cool hair cuts thing. Sequins etc.”

Some notable classics will be missing; obviously I haven’t seen every movie we were graced with for the past decade. If you do have the strong urge to voice your opinion, please leave a comment at the bottom of the page where I will most likely respond and say “UR RONG!!” on a serious note, I would love it if we did get some feedback

The countdown continues; Read the rest of this entry »
