I recently stumbled upon some Japanese movies...And well since I have seen every other movies on the english side of the planet, must turn to the other one, but I don't know any. :D


I saw
Azumi 1 and 2 Which was great, a bit ehh, but well funny to me, but awesome movie...
Ran Wasn't that good too serious for me, but a good movie never the less...
Ichi Was good aswell.
Pal, do yourself a favor and watch "Battle Royale"...easy, one of the best movies I ever see. I have many more, but you need to watch this one
I second Battle Royale. What type of movies do you like? Seems like action so perhaps Crows Zero 1/2 and umm Zatoichi?
Umm let's see I can only remember these that I've seen via Film 4 here in the UK...

Kamikaze Girls (2004) - Two very different people come together, a lolita fashion addict and a "yanki" gang member.

Love Exposure (2008) - A very surreal film where a guy who has a strict priest for a father decides he'll have to commit real sins to please his father in confession, he becomes skilled at taking "stealth upskirt shots" and is somehow dragged into contact with a dangerous cult. There are many many more things in the film though, it's 4 hours long (originally 6 hours but they were forced to cut it down :rofl: ).

Umm yeah, memory not too good, If you don't mind other Asian cinema stuff not from Japan though here's a couple directors:

Park Chan-wook's films - Korean
I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK (2006) - Awesome and unique tale set in an asylum with interesting characters. A quirky heartwarming story.
OldBoy (2003) - A very gripping film, but also very brutal... :sweat: A guy is randomly kidnapped and locked in a room for 15 years then let out suddenly without explanation. Whilst desperately trying to find an answer and seek vengeance he's led down a murky trail of conspiracies.

Stephen Chow's films - Chinese
Crazy comedies with wild choreography peppered with special effects. Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle, CJ7 are the ones I've seen. Kung Fu Hustle is my favourite out of them. CJ7 has a different tone.
I really liked "Summer Time Machine Blues". It's a comedy about friends in a college sci-fi club and neighboring photography club who unexpectedly find a time machine in their room.

It's available on Daily Motion with English subs.

I have heard of Battle Royale kinda scared of it seems lame, but yeah I guess I will have to watch it since everyone seem to like it.

I'm kinda action, comedy guy as long as it isn't overly too slow or compleatly stupid like Scary movie ,but then again I have seen The Sunset Limited which is two guys talking in a room...So as long as it is good...
Seven Samurai

You heard terribly bad. Is not that kind of movie.. Is based in a novel from 1999 that shock the entire japanese society. You must watch it and make your own opinion.

If you like the action stuff, Shinobi is an excellent movie, I really like that one. And for comedy, the last one I saw was "Cyborg Girl" (2008) was pretty pretty funny
Watched Battle Royale, Ehh kinda numb and plotless to be fair...Not lame, just numb I can't describe it in any other word. :D
Pppfff...then maybe you need something more basic, try see Naruto or stuffs for kids like that :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
Well I'm not saying it is a bad movie, Just not for me...Do tell me what do you think what makes it good movie for You?
Too tired and too bussy to do that. You just ask for movies and we recommend movies, not to discuss about films and read your comments about it. You must be grateful for the people who reply you and that's all
Whats so bad about discussing movies? Sure thanks about the suggestions, but why so strict?
*sniffs a conflict* :(
Watched Kamikaze Girls (2004) That was rather good movie, I liked it.
