While I generally prefer Kung Fu (Bruce Lee ftw) movies, I voted for Samurai as the films of Akira Kurosawa are just superb.

Man... I know it's only 5 votes, but I really thought it was going to be a closer fight.... Oh if you were wondering which side I'm rooting for Takasha Miike is killing it.......... Bias I know coming from my favorite director...

I really don't think they are comparable.

I like both genres, but Ran seals the deal for me.

I voted for Samurai movies.

Samurai movies anyday. Has anyone seen the live action Kenshin movie? Awesome, that it is.

Anything directed by Cheng Cheh is a masterpiece.

Heroes of the East and the 36th Chamber saga were also pretty good

I voted Kung-Fu, Samurai's feel like they bring a stick to a martial arts tournament game.. Although they are cool in their own ways.

Samurai movies are about honor and what it means to be a man. They also touch on some very heavy and dark parts of being a man of honor. While Kung Ku movies are for the most part action movies. It's like trying to compare an over the top action flick and a drama. They just don't mix.

The cinephilia in me rages when I see stuff like this -_-
