Asian Movie Fight Off! Vote for your favourite now! 1st day's results in!

What if there were a Battle Royale between as many Asian Films as you could think of?

Well that is kind of what I have tried to create... I've called it the Asian Movie Fight Off.

What is it? Well the following link takes you to the site I've put up...

hongkongmovies.freewebspace.com

But read first if you want.

Basically all the films I could find, thanks to Shingster's excellent polls, have been listed, and the films paired off.

Each pair will then become a poll on which people (YOU) will vote for which film they like better. After about a day of voting, the winner will progress to the next round.

There will be 15 matches running simultaneously a day.

So far there are 610 films in the first round, so this will be a long, and hopefully fun, competition!

More is explained on the site, and I hope as many of you vote as possible!

There is a list of all the films currently entered on the site, but if there are any that I've missed, that REALLY should be there, post their names here, and I'll be sure to add them into the mix.

Now GO! VOTE! It will only take a few minutes!

Thanks in advance to all who support this!



UPDATE! 1 results in!

The results are in for the 1st day. And for me there were a couple of surprises... The Chinese Feast is out... The percentages are of the total vote, for the particular film. The 'missing' %ages are for the 'Tie' and 'Haven't seen either' options.

Phantom Lover, The 34.38% Vs. Ghost Fever 6.25%
Legend of Speed, The 18.75% Vs. Hitman 59.38%
First Mission, The (aka Heart of Dragon) 28.13% Vs. Young & Dangerous 2 46.88%
92 Legendary La Rose Noire 18.75% Vs. Boxer From Shangtung 6.25%
Island of Fire 50.00% Vs. Wonder 7 18.75%
City Cops 7.41% Vs. Magic Cop 29.63%
Full Alert 59.26% Vs. Raped By An Angel 3 3.70%
Armour of God 74.07% Vs. Soong Sisters 14.81%
Rape After, The 7.41% Vs. Temptation of a Monk 25.93% Naked Killer 44.44% Vs. Expect the Unexpected 33.33%
2002 54.55% Vs. Days of Being Wild 27.27%
Black Sheep Affair, The 50.00% Vs. Chinese Feast, The 36.36%
Sixty Million Dollar Man 59.09% Vs. 3:00 a.m. 4.55%
Fatal Love 18.18% Vs. Angel 3 13.64%
Escape from Coral Cove 13.64% Vs. Mr. Wai-Go (AKA: Mr Viagra) 9.09%

Hell yeah, this is fun. Just have to remember to come back everyday....

Maybe a moderator could do a sticky for this, until it's over...

Can't wait to see what film wins....

I stickied things like this in the past but there are just too many up there now and the consensus seemed to be that the helpful ones - i.e. all the ones there now - should stay. That said, I just noticed that codefree's lists are not there at the moment.... (perhaps he is updating?)

Most posts stay on page one for a day or two. If people want to pop into this thread and add that they have voted and a few thoughts on the matter then the details will remain visible.

I'm a little skeptical about this "new member" trying to generate traffic to his advertisement heavy website. I visit and get pop-ups for casinos and free magazine subscriptions. Bah... Plus, this whole 'battle of the asian' movies thing just seems kinda pointless to me. Sorry if I just hurt anyone's feelings, but that's the way I feel.

re: website

The pop up ads are annoying, but I can only get rid of them if I pay for the site - which I am not willing to do.

As for generating traffic, that is what the goal is... if I didn't post a link to it on forums like there, then no one will no about it so I'll be the only one voting...

As for the idea being pointless, fair enough that's your opinion. I'm just doing it for fun. It is not as if the results are going to be used for anything major. Just something to do for fun.

Fair enough... I did say 'sorry' in advance. It just seemed motivated to me... There's plenty of free webspace to be had without pop-up ads and the 'battle' seems (to me) to be poorly thought out and quickly done so I thought it was just a way to generate traffic to your site so you could make a few bucks off the advertising or whatever. I don't know of a webspace provider that forces you to put casino ads and such all over every page... maybe at the worst a banner ad at the top and at the bottom, but usually just a banner ad at the top. If you're just doing it for kicks, then carry on - I'll abstain from participating simply because I don't see how the results can mean anything the way it's set up, but I'm all for experimentation and I suppose it'll mean something to somebody. If you're just doing it to generate traffic to your site so you can get ad revenue, then you can still carry on but I'll just continue to think it's a bit shady. I really don't know how much money one could make from website advertisements, so I'm not qualified to make wild accusations in any case.

Come to think of it....

.... joining just to plug a site, however worthy, is against the forum rules: plenty of people have been banned for this rule infringement before.

Assuming that you are interested in sticking aorund and contributing, degeneration, in genuine on-topic posts feel free to include a link in your sig to your poll.

I'm closing this thread now, however, for the sake of consistency.
