Didn't know there was a vote going on. Surprised nobody mentioned it here until now.

Many great choices there (Killer Constable, The Victim, Kids from Shaolin, Heart of Dragon, Righting Wrongs)...

... a few duds as expected (The Crazy Companies 2, The Boxer's Omen, We're Going to Eat You, The Truth, Love Massacre).

Thumbs up for My Heart is that Eternal Rose, The Shaolin Temple, Dreadnaught, In the Line of Duty 4, Wild Search, Winners & Sinners, Millionaires' Express, School on Fire, Encounter of the Spooky Kind, My Young Auntie.

Thumbs down for Security Unlimited (not a Hui Bros fan, but even so I felt this was the least enjoyable of their films), Dangerous Encounter - 1st Kind (Unfocused nihilism, Tsui didn't hit his stride until Zu).

Glad Mismatched Couples made it in the list. It's one hella entertaining film.

You know that's sarcasm, right?

I also am not much for Long arm of the Law. I really like the filming of the Kowloon Walled City in the final scene, but apart from that, it always seemed like standard crime fare to me.

This list so far is pretty good, only a handful I haven't seen.
