The Chinese Cinema

The home for the project is here at The Chinese Cinema. Here is the Introduction. If you want to know why I picked that title, you can read about my reasoning here.

This began as a loosely ranked list of the Chinese-language movies I'd seen since November of 2013. Then I added the ones I watched during the Summer of Sammo (May 24 - Sep 8, 2013) and everything I could find that I watched before then. It should now be a reasonably comprehensive catalogue of all the Chinese-language movies I have ever seen.

Also included are English-language films by primarily Chinese directors (John Woo, Tsui Hark, Corey Yuen, for example).
