    30. Breakfast at Tiffany's(1961)
    31. Vicky Cristina Barcelon(2008) loved Penélope and her yelling:lol:
    32. Marnie(1964)
    33. Hannah and her Sisters(1986)

    I downloaded an Audrey Hepburn collection on torrent, it was like 15 of her movies. I've seen just a few.
    Roman Holiday is one film I recommend, its so cute and in a way it isnt so corny. Plus, Gregory Peck is just :wub:

    :lol: I was rethinking this challenge, given that I'll probably make it to 100 before I know it.

    I think that I am going to make it my real movie challenge to watch 50 Asian movies. I'll update with my regular watch list as well, but I think this will be a harder goal for me.

    So far:
    1. A Separation (2011, Iran)
    2. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000, Taiwan)
    3. House (1977, Japan)
    4. The Host (2006, Korea)

    ^Each to their own.

    Considering i have already watched Breakfast At Tiffanys, i decided to watch How To Steal A Million (1966) with Peter O'Toole, it's a typical Audrey movie, filled with charm, and lets not forget the costumes by Hubert de Givenchy, it has a soft comedy aspect to it, like many films from that period, its set in Paris and Audrey's father is a con-man who rips off artists work and passes it off as the real thing and Peter O'Toole's character is there to catch him... in one scene Audrey ends up shooting Peter...

    Blueorchid, I'm doing this as well and I'm all over the place. Of the 71 films I've seen so far this year, only 12 are Asians... most of which are the "mainstream" Chinese films (ie Wong Kar Wai, Zhang Yimou) that I haven't seen because my local video store sells them. There's so much more on my watchlist and it's discouraging that I can't find them online especially Asian film noir.... I'll look into your list as well for recommendations!

    Also, I have a very ignorant question: is Wong Kar Wai's My Blueberry Nights counts as an Asian film? ughsoashamedimactuallyaskingthis :ninja::ninja::ninja:

    I´ve noticed that a lot of people watched Sixteen Candles... I was watching an episode of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" the other day -in which Molly Ringwald plays the mom- and they payed a little homage to the movie: the family forgets their daughter´s 16th birthday and Molly says “Everyone forgot my 16th birthday and it stayed with me my whole life!” :D
    So sweet! it brought back happy memories from when I watched her movies years ago :heart:

    I'm actually not sure, Wikipedia says it was a Hong Kong/Chinese/French production, but they speak English and it was shot in Nevada. :ninja: I probably wouldn't put it on my list, just because of the language.

    Of the ones I've seen so far, A Separation was wonderful (as expected). House was just completely weird. :blink: At first I didn't have a clue what was going on, but I enjoyed it after a while. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was really good and made me regret not seeing it sooner. The Host was good as well, I don't usually like Asian horror, but this one had a really good balance between horror/tension and comedy. It wasn't too silly and goofy, or ridiculously gory.

    Right now I am working on Seven Samurai, which I've put off watching before because of it's length.

    Unless you're a die-hard SW fan or have money to dispose, don't bother to go see it. The 3D effect was so badly done, that many times I took of my glasses and it was exactly the same (I'm still weeping over my 12 euros tbh :doh:).

    Guys, who watched the Artist how was it? Did you like it? I've got an invitation to watch a film tomorrow (feb 14 :innocent:) and I'm not sure what movie should I choose: One for the Money, Man on a Ledge or The Artist, WDYT?

    I'm still making my way through it... been about two weeks now. I really don't get the fuss, (unless the last half is suddenly amazing.) But your other 2 options don't sound that good either, so in that case, I'd probably see The Artist, just because we all know its going to win the Oscar, and its always good to see the nominated films... even if they are completely overhyped.
