    Macross Plus: Ultimate Edition
    Akira
    Metropolis
    X
    Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles
    Titan A.E.

    and not forgetting

    Danger Mouse :)

    Ive got that one and the other street fighter one as well. Storylines were a bit ropey and the R2 is cut to shreds but the animation was good.

    I watched it on Sci Fi so I don't know anything about it being cut. The action and fight scenes were great though...didn't care about the plot :)

    Tekken is very similar to SF2 so watch that if you haven't already seen it.

    How about one of the Urotsukidoji discs ?

    I bought a double DVD (Legend Of The Overfiend/Legend Of The Demon Womb), I watched the Overfiend and found it ummmmm, interesting :D Havent got round to watching the second yet though.

    The Daily Telegraph called it "Deeply Disturbing" :devil:

    I got it here anyway - http://www.playserver2.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=R2&title=92138

    The R2 version is cut to shreds - for obvious reasons, bestiality, rape etc. I tried to get hold of a R1 boxset (5 films I think) but decided not to after a previous thread here. If customs got there paws on it I'd never see it.

    Fist of the north star, LOL. Have you seen the live action version?

    Ok, Urotsukidoji gets a big :thumbsdow

    Must admit that I found it really confusing, it got a decent review on IMDB but there were alot of other users who got lost in the plot - Im presuming the cuts on the R2 didnt help either.

    Cant think of any other films that havent already been mentioned, although I always thought Golgo 13: The Professional sounded quite good, anyone seen it ?

    the Legend Of The Overfiend/Demon Womb are great if you like scenes of extreme cartoon sex and gore:D

    I'd also recommend Ninja Scroll, Wicked City and Devil Man.
