Assault on Precinct 13 is one of my personal favourite Carpenter flicks, its very simple/ minimalist and has a great atmosphere. The acting, writing, directing are all a bit hit and miss, but the atmosphere and pacing are spot on.

Big Trouble in Little China is just cheap tongue in cheek fun and as long as you don't take it too seriously its decent enough, but its not particularly good. Its become a bit of a cult classic, mostly for Kurt Russell's hammy, over the top comedic performance, which fits in perfectly with the cheesy, off beat tone of the movie.
