Your favourite new wave actor actress?

Postby Aka Tek » Sat Aug 08, 2009 5:31 am

Who is your favourite new wave actor or/and actress and why? If youve got a favourite director you can mention him/her also.

Havent got that much knowledge about this part of the asian cinema but got a few new wave movies a while ago and thought I would check out what you guys and girls think about this part of the asian cinema.

I'm so old-school my favourite new wave actors are the old wave guys cropping up in new wave productions.

[Quote=samuraiguy2005]If you haven't seen SPL, Flashpoint, and Ip Man, you have three must watch movies to get.

I like Dragon Tiger Gate, Ballistic Kiss and Seven Swords well enough, but The Empress and the Warriors was disappointing even with Donnie doing, more or less, a scene from a Chang Cheh movie circa 1971.[/Quote]

Thanks for the list sam.

Legend of a wolf then? I watched that movie with Donnie Yen a couple of weeks ago but though it had a bit to much of the fast cutting that some of the new wave movies tend to use. Dont know if a widescreen-print would do it more just but it was an OK movie.

[Quote=rarebastard] itlod 4 fox has released a remastered version that includes the dub. fortunestar has a boxset with iron monkey and itlod 4. i think tiger cage is oop but tc2 was put out in the mainland by WA with the origonal mastered version. there is an origonal copy being sold on ebay its the best looking but the madarin audio and echo effect on the sound is much to be desired. i have tc 1 but i forget what version it is i'll update you later. i think a tc remastered boxset was released in france and it includes tc3(no donnie)[/Quote]

Thanks for that runthrough.

[Quote=J0shuaKane] Tony Jaa. i love Donnie Yen, but Tony Jaa is brutal where Donnie Yen is fancier with prettier fight scenes. i dont mean to speak bad about him but i like the brutal shit better. Ong-Bak 2 did it for me, he is my favorite of all time. (cept for Bruce of course ;) )[/Quote]

Watched Warrior King a couple of weeks ago and it was mean.
