Are you sure you are not thinking of Kung Pow? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEQn3eXCmvE

Kung Fun Hustle is way better than Kung Pow btw. Kung Pow is quite awful.

Agreed about Korean movies. They're generally really good. Park Chan Wook is, IMO, one of the best filmmakers in the entire world so he alone elevates Korean cinema.

Yes, that is a very good movie as well. Easily a top 10 foreign movie for me, probably in the 5-7 range.

i've heard WAR OF THE ARROWS (I think that is the title) is the absolute shit. I downloaded it but have not watched it.

There is also and HBO series based on a Korean movie coming out, it's about a guy who is dying unless he gets blood transfusions every few months, and his rare blood type is only shared by a few others, and this woman agrees to help him IF he helps her out. Turns out she is a con artist, and he winds up protecting her from the mob and bailing her out of all her problems. It's a drama / romantic comedy at times.

I understand.

Kung Fu Hustle actually made a big splash in the United States. Heck, Blazer games still use a clip of it after many years (they show the woman start running like a looney toons character when the opponents get called for traveling. I really liked the movie when it came out, but I feel its entertainment value wore off over time (it is sort of a novelty movie, and novelties often wear off).

I watched 13 Assassins last night. It was solid but not great. I enjoyed Red Cliff much more and definitely recommend that one. Watching The Good, The Bad and The Weird now. Seem like some good recommendations in this thread. And luckily half of them are on Netflix so it saves me the trouble of downloading them.
