I’ve added these films to my Appendix N page.

Brotherhood of Blades (2014)
Another Chinese martial arts drama-tragedy. Three assassins are setup by the head of the Secret Police. They’re “dead men walking,” and each tries to square away his respective backstory before the plot catches up with them. Oh and uh, everyone dies? That shouldn’t really be a spoiler.

Moral of the story: “being an assassin sucks.”

Kundo: Age of the Rampant (2014)
I just watched this one. It’s crazy. I want to call it, “Korean Quentin Tarantino.” It’s a serial revenge flick, with lots and lots and lots of killing. And like, crazy Western guitar music. Not for the faint of heart.

Pirates (2014)
Seriously, this borrows so much character, plot, and cinematography from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise that I want to call it: “Korean Pirates of the Caribbean.” It’s enjoyable enough, but skip-able.

The Tsunami Warrior (2008)
This one is “Thai Star Wars.” There are some wicked twists that I love, like the Force automatically includes Light and Dark sides (and lets you command fish). Obi-wan is also the Emperor (and the father of Darth Vader). And there are three princesses. And Han Solo is a bodyguard with gnarly facial scars.

Oh, it’s fantasy not science fiction. Star Wars isn’t really sci-fi anyway.

The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom (2014)
This one is uh, complicated. It’s a martial arts drama with some cool subplots. I recommend watching the whole thing through but be warned that its ending is crack-tastic. You know the lovers are doomed, so just ignore the acid sequence love song at the end. It detracts from the rest of the movie.
