It is summer, I is home for the holidays with nothing to do. I is really really bored.

Sooo, after watching all my movies and playing all my games I need to look for new things to entertain me. Martial arts movies are my movie of choice, along with shooty things that go bang and hot girls. These aren't mutually exclusive all the time =p

But after watching Fearless, Hero, Fist of Legend and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, I realised I didn't have that many lying around and need some more. Alas most of the ones down the movie store are excremental and I needs some recommendations.

I usually prefer the lighter Jackie Chan films. Project A2 is a good classic Jackie Chan film. Rush Hour 3 isn't bad either.

Generally, most any Chan film other than the Medallion, and The Tuxedo.

Well, I've always been partial to Enter The Dragon. Classic Bruce Lee. :)

For Chan, my fav is still Rumble in the Bronx.

If you want a "good" martial art flick, the actors you need to look into are Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee, Tony Jaa, Donny Yen, Chow Yun Fat, Stephen Chow, or any of the old Hong Kong vets. Your not gonna find too many god American made movies in the "Martial Arts" genre, most are slow and awkward fighting. Hong Kong really perfected the art and you cant go wrong with any of the actors I mentioned above....

Yimou Zhang is (currently) the director to check if you like martial arts(IMO). If you liked Hero, a DEFINITE watch is House of Flying Daggers and The Curse of the Golden Flower. Furthermore, The Banquet has some seriously nice scenes, though it's kind of a martial arts/arthouse combination (with less action, more story). Those three (in this order) are a serious recommendation if you like martial arts.

If you want instead of wire-fu / wushu (the 'style' of martial arts used in e.g. Hero) something more of 'real' fighting; rent/buy/'obtain' the movie Ong Bak. The Protector which Sorgo mentioned is with the same star, and is Ong Bak's follow up.
