I hated Stormriders and A Man Called Hero, but I really enjoyed this

Anyone else catch Il Mare on Tuesday? Wonderful!

Ahh...The Duel. An absolute must see for fans of Stormriders, AMCH or Ekin fans (eg. all the girls i know, lol). This movie is very much in the same style as Stormriders and AMCH, even some of the same actors. I think I might go and watch it again... LOL, Dragon 9 is the best! 8, 8 and a half, 8, 8 and a half, 8 and a half, 8 and a half, 8! LOL

Well... I just happen to like looking at him- I don't like seeing him act or try to fight. In that sense, I actually preferred him in Storm Riders- his hair was so cool! It made him so gwaa worthy!

I recently saw the Korean thriller Tell me Something. It's basically about a killer who disects people but mixes up their body parts. The only connection is that the victims were former boyfriends of this woman who refuses to delve into the past. The film has gory scenes and good cinematography but the plot is as confusing as hell. I found who the killer was but what their motive was is beyond me.

I don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but it seems appropriate.

I just caught a promo on World Movies (and if you have cable but not this channel, you need your head checked) that mentioned that Amelie and Ring 2 will be screening on the channel later this year.

There was another film too, but I've completely forgotten its title...

Anyone catch Another Heaven last night? It's a great Japanese horror, clearly influenced by one of the best 80s US films, The Hidden.

It's got all the good stuff - action, gore, hot women, more gore, sex and a score by Taro Iwashiro (Rurouni Kenshin movie) - like I said, it's great

Some people slam the film for being misogynistic/homophobic, and with good cause, but if you're willing to overlook these aspects chances are you'll enjoy it. I sure did.

I loved Another Heaven. Lupin was right on the money when he said it's got all the good stuff. I especially loved it when that lady doctor made her entrance. She is one beautiful woman.

Yukiko Okamoto, who plays the brain cooking Chizuru, ain't too shabby either

But most definately the standout is Yasuko Matsuyuki, who plays the doctor. She has appeared in over a dozen TV dramas but only a few movies.

For those who didn't see the movie and want to know who we're talking about, below is a photo taken late last year on the set of Mayonaka no Ame (Midnight Rain) with Yuji Oda. Ok, so it's not the greatest picture in the world but it's the best I could find

You didn't miss much. Just the opening credits and this Bible quote:

Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down upon you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time

And after that so begins the movie, with the detectives poking around the first victim's home and finding the cooked brain.

I taped ANOTHER HEAVEN. Will get back to you once I've watched it.

Also got a friend to tape me LILY CHOU CHOU, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE and AKIRA KUROSAWA'S DREAMS off World Movies (wish I had cable just for this channel), so I look forward to seeing these also.

.

Who knows what's on SBS in June?

Who knows what's on SBS in June?




This Saturday the HK fantasy flick The Duel premieres.

Mon 9th Jun @ 10:50pm - Be There Or Be Square

Wed 11th Jun @ 12:00am - Face

Wed 18th Jun @ 10:00pm - The Road Home

Sun 29th Jun @ 10:35pm - Vengeance Is Mine

Face was only on a few weeks ago and definately worth seeing if you missed it last time. The slow pace will turn some off but this is one of the best "triumph of the spirit" movies I've seen - and probably the only one that involves murder, rape and yakuza.

The Road Home is an enjoyable romance drama. Doesn't overstay it's welcome at 90 minutes and Zhang Ziyi is very cute

Vengeance Is Mine may be unpleasant viewing for some, but it's excellent, one of Shohei Imamura's best. And Ken Ogata turns in one of his finest performances in the lead role of serial killer.

I'd like to know what you think of ITMFL, Lily and Dreams when you see them.

I saw ITMFL when it opened in theatres down here a couple of years ago - with Tony Leung in attendance! Yay! He walked right passed my seat, I could've reached out and touched him but his bodyguard probably would've snapped my arm Erm, anyway, I love the movie.

Lily was shot on DV and looks absolutely stunning! The acting & music is superb. It's also very depressing, left me feeling like crap for ages. Director Shunji Iwai's Love Letter, April Story and Swallowtail Butterfly have a lot more replay value for me.

Lupin with the goods!!
Thanks.

Will let you know about those flicks once I watch them. In relation to Wong-Kar Wai, I have only seen FALLEN ANGELS so far, which had some great moving shots and obscure camera angles, but I felt as a story it fell somewhat short of the mark. Not to mention the cheesy music - it killed me! Plan to hire out CHUNG KING EXPRESS soon and watch IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE, so I guess I'll have a better idea of his work after that.

I've been trying to hunt down a copy of SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLY (which you recommended some time ago), but no luck on that front. ALL ABOUT LILY CHOU CHOU will be the only Shunji Iwai film I've seen.

Currently have Takashi Miike's DEAD OR ALIVE (UNRATED EDITION) on order from the US and ICHI THE KILLER (COLLECTOR'S EDITION) on order from the UK, which will be great to add to the collection - extreme comic madness!!

Re: Swallowtail Butterfly, you're in luck. It's getting a priced down re-issue in Japan:

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=PCBG-50404

Very nice price of 2500 yen ($32 Australian - I paid $100 for it a couple of years ago). It has english subs and a very good transfer.

The UK DVD of Ichi The Killer is cut by over three minutes! The best release of Ichi is the Dutch one, which can be bought either from here:

http://www.dvdasian.com/cgi-bin/dvdasian/14836.html?id=N23awzNu

or here:

http://www.xploitedcinema.com/dvds/dvds.asp?title=698

Btw, I think Fallen Angels is WKW's best

Thanks for the sites, some great stuff on there (although damn those Japanese DVD's for being so expensive!). Will have a good look when I get some more time.

Me thinks I've ordered the wrong version of ICHI THE KILLER though..... damn. Unfortunately it shipped earlier this week. I did however get it at a pretty good price: 2 Disc set for around $35 AUD, albeit cut by three minutes.

I read though that even without this three minutes, it's still extremely graphic. Have you seen both versions Lupin? Are these three minutes really neccesary? I'm all for splatter violence, etc, but gratitious rape I could probably do without anyway. If you've seen both versions, would be very interested to know what was actually cut?

Yeah, they totally drain my wallet. I've got over $400 worth of Japanese DVDs coming my way over the next couple of months. Can't buy anything else until I get the money together for them...

Anyway, Ichi. I haven't seen the UK release sorry. Just the uncut version and the utterly useless HK release (cut by a massive 15 minutes!)

But knowing the BBFC it's not hard to guess what they'll cut out...

Violence against men = OK!
Violence against women = Not OK!

Rest assured you'll still be getting a fair bit of gore but the nastiest stuff committed against the female cast members, such as the infamous "nipple slice", will be gone.

Interestingly enough the BBFC passed the French film Irreversible uncut, and that has a brutal nine minute rape scene! Much more prolonged than anything Ichi has to offer...

He he.... ah the call of the avid DVD collector! I feel your pain. Currently have three titles on order from the UK (Ichi The Killer, La Haine, Funny Games), four from the US (Dead Or Alive Unrated & a few Coen Bros films), and another five R4 (mostly Anime) to buy this month. I've known for a while that May/June is a big release time for titles I'm after though so saved up in advance. But it still hurts the wallet.

Regarding the $400 of Japanese discs.... what do you get for that? 4, maybe 5 DVD's? Very expensive! I did however find some stuff on the CDJapan site you gave me I'm very keen on, even a couple of US films that have been released over there but not anywhere else - which is a little strange, considering they are US films! David Cronenberg's seminal sci-fi classic - THE FLY - in a single disc release (to have part 2 is an embarrassment to the collection) and another Cronenberg flick, NAKED LUNCH, which has not been released here, in the UK or the US. Obviously there's also a great selection of Japanese cinema (though unfortunately a lot of it is not subtitled) and unreleased Anime. Thanks again for the site!

SBS - SAT 24TH JUNE 12:30 - LOVE LETTER

So that's another Shunji Iwai film I'll get to see

This is what I have ordered...

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=AEBD-10006 (pay no attention to their info, it's the film that has subs, not the extras)

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=FXBA-24879

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=KWDV-25 (more Miike madness)

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=FLBF-8043

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=DSTD-2102

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=DSTD-2186

So six for somewhere around $400. Expensive and all but one of those don't have english subs.

There are a suprising amount of non-Japanese films to be found on DVD in Japan that haven't been released elsewhere. Stuff like the Italian nature-gone-awry horror films Killer Crocodile 1&2 and The Great Alligator, the uncut version of Scream, the German thriller Tattoo...and I'm very excited about the upcoming release of Sam Peckinpah's Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia.

Once I get the six above payed off I'll (probably very slowly) make my way through the following...

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=GSTN-29081

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=TDV-2735D

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=HSB-10

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=KIBF-5077

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=PIBD-1229

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=VWDZ-8026

You know, I went through every day in June on SBS's site and didn't even notice Love Letter was being repeated. Glad someone out there is awake.

And in case you haven't heard, Tartan have recently released two more Miike films in the UK: Shinjuku Triad Society and Rainy Dog. Both are uncut (suprising in the case of STS, as it's one mean piece of work) but being Tartan DVDs I wouldn't expect much in the way of quality (though at least they've seemingly left the days of burnt-in subtitles behind them).

Watched ANOTHER HEAVEN last night. Very enjoyable, not as gruesome as I was expecting... I think Mr. Miike has completely de-sensitised me! A cool-as-**** concept, some hilarious moments ("Mmm that smells great!", not to mention the older detective's encounter with the young crime addict!), some decent special effects and a strong character-driven storyline make it a winner, although it loses marks for numerous plot holes and its somewhat cheesy last quarter. 6/10.

Oh, I wish I were fluent in Japanese. I've been learning since June 2001 so I'm never 100% lost when watching something without subs. More like 70%

But there are so many movies that will never see the light of day outside Japan so a lot of the time it's either "go without subs or go without altogether".

I don't think I have that many DVDs. Would you consider somewhere between 250 and 300 a decent size collection? I do keep everything I order, thankfully I've yet to buy something I hate

Well- YRD has given me the heads up- on SBS Wed 18th (this Wed) at 7.30 is a Doco about Trash Video. It used to be in Fortitude Valley and has now shifted to West End.

I might actually be an extra in this- as I *think* they were shooting at a couple of the video nights that myself and a friend went to. It might also have a little bit about the film that Andrew/Trash Video was making "Lesbo-A-GoGo" which may also have a few glimpses of myself and same friend mucking around before they got into the actual filming (we were in about 2 shots and had to go- was getting too late and we both had work the next morning)

So yes- Watch! You may see me!

I'm seriously kicking myself for missing Love Letter. I hated myself for not taping it last time.

Did anyone tape it? Anyone? Email me please



Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope...


Edit: On another note, The Road Home was great

I'd actually call the Protector more of an action film than a drama. It's got Jackie Chan after all but having seen it I can tell you the action isn't very good. People should see it though if they want to hear people of all walks of life speaking fluent Cantonese.

For Japanese.. I HIGHLY recommend "Japanese for Busy People" it's easy to read through and the structure is exceptionally good. Get the text book (Kana version so you can read as well as speak) and see if you can get the tapes/cds. There are a lot of Japanese tutorials online too. Check them out for extra study. Watch Anime and Japanese films in Japanese and listen hard, it's ok if it's subtitled. Try listening to Japanese music too- It's good listening practise (ShakkaZombie is awesome btw- I listen to it and understand like.. the counting -_-") I also highly recommend if you can find it- "A Guide To Reading and Writing Japanese" it's full of the most essential Kanji. It's brilliant actually.

Thanks for the heads up on the Jackie doco. You will need to upload your avatar to a reliable web host and post the url in your profile. The webhost has to allow direct linking of images as well.

Young and Dangerous 6 isn't worth watching?!?! Twisted Evil What?! Young and Dangerous 6 is a very good movie in my opinion, and I've seen movies 1-3 and 5.
Anyway, I thought I'd post the dates of movies this month:

August 4, 10:50pm - Girls Night Out (Korean)
August 8. 12:45am - Another Heaven (Japanese)
August 9, 10pm - Godzilla Versus Destoroyah (Japanese)
August 13, 11:45pm - Durian, Durian (Chinese)
August 14, 11:35pm - Face (Japanese)
August 16, 10pm - Perfect Blue (Anime)
August 22, 12:50am - Nowhere to Hide (Korean)

And that's it...Well, so far. SBS isn't displaying the rest August's schedule for some wierd reason. Hopefully this isn't already posted somewhere else, but if it is...then ignore this one. Laughing Wink

And I just wanted to mention, belated as it is, that the person who is learning Japanese atm should also obtain a Japanese to English and English to Japanese dictionary (of course) as well as a book containing all Kanji, their stroke orders, kunyomi and onyomi, etc.

Well, I think that's enough from me for the night.... Razz

Yes, I know. SBS wasn't showing the TV schedule for quite a few days when I made that list - Monday the 11th's schedule was one of them. I don't know why they weren't displayed: it seemed that it was completely random.
