    Pondering about a good theme, I remembered that earlier this year, "Parasite" was the first Asian movie to win the Oscar for Best Film.
    So, I thought, let's celebrate the cinematic features of Asia.

    There's obviously a lot to choose from, so to make some restrictions, let's exclude SciFi and Fantasy. Repeat: No SF/Fantasy. And, because those would make a good theme on their own, let's exclude animated films, as well. Other than that, any other movie produced on the Asian continent and had a theatrical release (even if only in its home country) qualifies; Martial Arts movies, Samurai features, dramas, comedies, biopics, go wild.

    Still, there are the usual rules. Entries can not be larger than 200x200 pixels and/or 1 Mb data, and also keep those entries clean, folks.

    Let's have three entries per user.

    Oldboy, 2003, South Korea. Possibly the most disturbing film I've ever seen in my life.

    Someone is watching this guy scraping bird droppings of a large plastic bird...
    if you want to know who and why, and also wouldn't mind a lighthearted and warm story,
    then you should watch the South Korean movie "Castaway on the Moon".

    Sorry... I've watched a number of Asian films, but they've all been SF&F. :shrug:

    I think most of the ones I've watched lean that way too.

    Alright, while turnout wasn't as big as I'd wanted, I think we have a good number of entries. So, this is the LAST CALL! If you wish to enter, get to it, I'll put the poll up in 1-2 days.
