    "Drunken Master" and "Drunken Master II" are good picks. "Master of the Flying Guillotine" is also a lot of fun. And don't forget "Enter the Dragon!"

    "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin" is really good, as well. I also have a soft spot for "Miracle Fighters," which combines martial arts and wizardry.

    Anything with Donnie Yen is going to be pretty good. Are you looking for out of the way stuff? Look up Chin Siu Ho- he was the senior student in Fist of Legend, and he made some great B flicks. IF you want to see women kick ass, get Naked Killer or "Angel". If you want old school Shaw Hung gar, it's hard to go wrong with Shaolin Temple or Shaolin 5 masters. Go to Beijingvideo.com- that guy has a whole history of stuff, and his website is a labor of love. You can get some rare stuff their. If you want a good, little seen in the U.S. Chow Yung Fat movie on the level of Better Tomorrow, try and get a copy of "Tragic Hero". Anything by Johnny To, well almost anything, is good. Try and find a copy of "Gunman".-no kung fu, really, but tons of heroic bloodshed. Also, if you want old school, Seasonal Films asskickery, every collection should have Hot, Cool and Vicious- TKD , Hung Gar and Preying Mantis in a big kick ass mix. ****, I could go on all night, but I have to eat dinner and pretend to myself that i am not an utter geek.

    That would be pretty much my selection.

    Also if you don't mind goofy plots Six String Samurai is a fun movie.

    I could never stand Steven Seagal movies. Too much arm flailing that could never pass for actual fighting. It was only later that I realized he does aikido. :P

    Fist of Legend is my all-time favorite movie, and solid proof that Jet Li actually put out good movies once upon a time. Hero was great, too.

    Zatoichi!

    And any Jackie Chan movie, I think.

    Equilibrium, too, if that counts.

    You could see all those on Cable, except Fihter in the Wind. Every few months comcast has Six String Samurai available ON DEMAND. I wouldn't buy those flicks, just because you can see them for free, or rent them at blockbuster. I only say that because the OP was going to throw down some hard earned cash- better to get something you'll have trouble finding, like a good copy of Eastern Condors (though they do show that on Encore, or did, a few years ago). Go to
    Yesasia.com and get the latest Donnie Yen Flashpoint on VCD US version for $ 7.99! I'm sure it's going to kick ass.
