As of late I've been expanding my taste in movies out there; we should recognize that Hollywood isn't the only place producing top notch movies.
1. Red Cliff Part I-II 10/10.
This is from Imdb "In the early third century, the land of Wu is invaded by the warlord Cao Cao and his million soldiers. The ruler of Wu, Sun Quan, calls on the rival warlord Liu Bei for help, but their two armies are still badly outnumbered. However, the Wu strategist Zhou Yu sees that Cao Cao's army is unused to battling on the sea, which may just give them a chance if they can exploit this weakness properly".
This is about war in China, one power hungry warlord vs. other warlords who are fighting to protect their land. If they lose not only do they get beheaded but their families will die in the worst way. The bad warlord has an army over 800,000...the other has 100,000. Watch this **** right here, war strategy, gore, and on top of it all beautiful scenes throughout. The story is great too.
