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

Samurai movies.

Akira Kurosawa's films are masterpieces.

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

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

Kung-Fu in a rapestomp.

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 -_-
