In a way they are all one movie, Lee is one of those Asian directors who made movies like an old master from the beginning of his career, however I voted Crouching Tiger, since it applies his talent to an over the top B genre and it works beautifully, it is way better than the other imports from the 00's

I voted Brokeback Mountain. Crouching Tiger... is the most overrated film I've ever seen.

Have to go with Hulk. Besides Hulk & Crouching Tiger, I've never seen any of his movies. Haven't even heard of some of the ones listed. I hated Crouching Tiger so Hulk by default. No matter how boring the Banner parts of the movie were, once he Hulks out, the movie got pretty cool for those scenes.

i voted for Crouching Tiger, but I really loved Sense and Sensibility as well. one of the best Jane Austen movies ever, ranks up there with both versions of Pride & Prejudice for me

Hulk needs to replace Chosen on this list without a doubt.

The Wedding Banquet, a very smart comedy. When I saw it in the movie theater, I was pleasantly surprised at how funny it was and laughed a lot. More people need to see it as I'm sure it hasn't gotten the recognition it deserves.

Hands down...Hulk.

Just kidding. That movie sucked. I'd have to go with either Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or The Ice Storm.

The Ice Storm, with Lust, Caution being the only other film on there I'd watch again.

The Ice Storm, not even a question really. Although CTHD is going to win this one hand's down, because that and HULK are the majority of what most people have seen... unfortunately.

As much as I love The Wedding Banquet, I had to go with Brokeback.
