House of Flying Daggers was a pretty solid movie. The storyline was relatively weak, but the film itself was more of a cross between kung fu and cinema as art. Both the fight sequences and visual aspect of the film (colors, settings, etc.) were phenominal.
To hijack the thread a bit - I just saw Team America last night. That had to have been one of the funniest movies Ive seen in a while. Absolutely hilarious. I never realized Stone and Parkers animosity towards actors before watching Team America (Did anyone watch the special features from the DVD? Check out the introduction to Team America - its the interview with Stone and Parker - they absolutely shred actors in it - hillarious). Once again they establish themselves as comic geniuses.
