Thinking this would be a broad question, maybe your asking of a suggestion instead of favorites.

Anyways my favorite would be " Enter the Dragon 1973 "

Suggestions for martial arts films :

All Bruce Lee films are recommended
Ip Man 1 & 2 2010
The Legend is Born Ip Man 2010
Ong Bak 2005
Fist of Legend 1994

These are heavy treats so go check them

Kung Pow!: Enter the Fist  ;D

Seriously, I don't have any favorites but among the martial arts flicks I've seen recently, "Five Deadly Venoms" was rather memorable. (with English dubbing of course, wouldn't watch Kung-Fu any other way)

may napanood ako kagabi sa star movies, title niya CLASH CODENAME: PHOENIX.
Searched it sa google, pero title niya is - Clash (Bay Rong).

Ewan ko kung pasok sa martial arts (genre) pero yung fight scenes niya nagustuhan ko. :D

^ I have also seen the Vietnamese movie Clash (Bay Rong) & I also like the fight scenes. Also check out The Rebel, from the same star (Johnny Nguyen).

Another alternative martial arts movie is the Indonesian Merantau, which features very good hand-to-hand fighting.
