So what are some of your favorites, from this awesome and at times over the top genre? Samurai, Ninja, Kung Fu. of Japanese, Chinese or American origin don't matter all are included in my eyes. I will keep it simple with using only American titles due to a lot of these films having multiple names.

I will start.... no special order

NINJA

- Revenge Of The Ninja
- Ninja III - Domination
- Pray For Death
- American Ninja
- Ninja Wars
- Chinese Super Ninjas
- Seventeen Ninja
- Red Shadow (60's version)
- Ninja Hunt (60's version and the re-make)
- Castle of Owls
- Third Ninja

SAMURAI & KUNG FU

- Enter The Dragon
- Game Of Death
- Fist Of Fury
- Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story
- Lady Kung Fu
- Deadly China Doll
- Broken Oath
- Lady Snowblood I & II
- 5 Deadly Venoms
- Shogun Assassin
- Most Shaw Bros. really
- Versus

Master of the 36th Chamber
Master of the Flying Guillotine
Heroes 2 (or 2 heroes, I think the translation was a bit off)
Ricky-Oh (not really kung-fu, but still awesome)
Shaolin Soccer
Kung-Fu Hustle
House of the Flying Daggers

what can I say I am a bit of a kung-fu n00b

Not to sound lame and pretentious but KungFu films are fun, but nothing more, compared to the great Ninja, Chambara, Jidaigeki films out there, that are serious, and a lot of them state real happenings (period dramas) in the times of Feudal Japan, with of course at times there own twist on ideas and events as well as characters added into the story/plot, some very classic films dating back to the 50's.

If one wants to delve that far into the culture beyond your average chop socky Hong Kong films!

Just take a look at Criterion's Samurai films for starters!

Not that I "don't" like them, I do, just have to be in the mood, I guess if I look at the genre as a whole, I do tend to like the serious films out of the bunch better.
