some titles i think eastern eye should consider..

eastern condors
jisatsu circle
wild zero Very Happy
the moment of romance series
eat&run (miyamu! XD)

sorry if any of these have already been mentioned in other threads.

also i'd really like to see madman cinema bring out dellamorte dellamore on dvd but i'm told it was already released here under another the name "of death and love" ..i've never seen a copy of it anywhere though, at all. it's the best zombie movie ever made imo.

I'm sorry to spam these titles on this forum again again, but these deserve a mention:

Lone Wolf and Cub 1: Sword of Vengeance (Lend a Hand, Lend an Arm), 1972
Lone Wolf and Cub 2: Baby Cart at the River Styx, 1972
Lone Wolf and Cub 3: Baby Cart to Hades (Flying on the Winds of Death in a Baby Cart), 1972
Lone Wolf and Cub 4: Baby Cart in Peril (Heart of a Parent, Heart of a Child), 1972
Lone Wolf and Cub 5: Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (Path Between Heaven and Hell), 1973
Lone Wolf and Cub 6: White Heaven in Hell (Diagoro, We're Going to Hell), 1974
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Purgatory, 1979 (TV Release)
Lone Wolf and Cub: Through a Child's Eye, 1985
Lone Wolf and Cub: Final Conflict (Handfull of Sand), 1992


The synopsis is self explanatory: Lots of blood. A rogue Samurai roams the beatiful coutry side with his child.

The Legend of Gingko (Korean)
Another Heaven (Japan)
Wild Zero (Japan)
anything from Takeshi Miike (anything that is that will make it through the censors and arrive uncut).
I also second the nominations of Dellamorte Dellamore (Italian in English)
and Alice (Japan).

My first short list-

Ping Pong- Who needs really "sporty" sport films?
Twins Effect- Apparently the film doesn't quite deliver all that it could, but it still sounds fun. Vampire hunters, Ekin Cheng, Cameo by Jackie Chan.. ^___^
Bangkok Dangerous- a deaf and mute hitman grows out of his hate for the world. It sounds really coo... 1999 and Thai I believe.

Bangkok Dangerous is a great film! It is indeed from Thailand, done by the Pang brothers who later did the supernatural-thriller The Eye. It's just started a run on World Movies if you can catch it.

Bangkok Dangerous is already slated for a mid-2004 DVD release on the Eastern Eye label.

Having read the review (thanks) I take back my request for Perfect Blue. I'd like to replace it with a suggestion for Naked Weapon if that's ok?

Here is a review of the UK HKL release. Maybe I'll even import it based on that review. Smile

- mib

Edit: I'd also like to lodge a complaint against whomever removed the underlines from inline links in the html, AND made the visited links almost the same colour as the regular text. Can we please have a color change so the links actually stand out? (I underlined this one by hand.)

It's never been underlined that's the thing... i don't think i can change that it's not in the options anywhere...and everytime i change the css file manually it doesn't do what i tell it to do. -_-

colour thing I'll change but I thought it'd be nicer so that it stood out a bit more.

mib, you can suggest more then one thing, as far as i know, you can suggest 100 things. I assume madman will be getting what most people ask for, thats why we need more votes for Alice, which everyone does love, they are probably just the people that arn't comming into this thread.

Oh, and Naked weapon already has an R4 rental release out now, so either it's out for sale now in Australia or will be out for sale within the next few months. So you needn't need to ask madman to release something that is or soon to be released in australia anyway Smile

After reading a review for Ping Pong I'd like to cast my vote. When you mean Vampire Hunters do you mean Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters because Columbia Tristar have released that in R4. I unfortunately missed Bangkok Dangerous this month but it sounds promising.
While I already own the Killer Eastern Eye may be interested in releasing the John Woo Collection. It is a 2 disc set featuring the Killer and Hard Boiled. I'm not sure if it still exists but it was available in the US a few years ago from Winstar Video.

Nope. It's part of the Summary for "The Twins Effect" ^_^ Vampire hunting abounds.

"Being on the Shortlist" is a good thing. It's like getting into the semi-finals.

Once more- PLEASE DISCUSS IN OTHER THREADS. This is straight up suggestions. I want this topic to be neat and easy for MM staff to read- not having to surf through. Think seriously about all that you suggest, and don't just list your top 10 films. List a few, and please do SOME research to see if it would be available.

Thankyou.

Waterboys (Japan)

Based on true story I believe: Japanese highschool male syncronized swimming team. Very clever, very funny. Was shown as part of Japanese film festival recently around the place.

Is it possible to see Zhang Yimou's movies out on DVD also?

I'd like to suggest the following if possible (since they fall under the Silk Screen banner):

- The Road Home (personal favourite)
- Raise the Red Lantern
- Hero

More suggestions:

Nuan - China - Recently picked up top honours at the Tokyo Film Festival. Here is some further information.

(From website]In a nutshell, the movie is about how a young man in his early 30s returns to the village where he spent his childhood after living in the city for 10 years. Back in the village, he meets his first love. It's a story somewhat similar to Chinese writer Zhang Chengzhi's classic novel "Hei Junma (The Black Steed, or A Mongolian Tale)."

Akira Kurosawa's Dreams - JAPAN - Click To go To Website

(Comments from Website) A co-production with Steven Spielberg, this collection of eight vignettes, each bringing to life scenarios dreamed by Kurosawa, deals with mankind's relationship with forces beyond human understanding. These beautifully rendered tales, linked only by a solitary observer, carry the viewer away into Kurosawa's mind, where images both fanciful and disturbing dwell. Enchanted foxes, tree spirits, frightful ghosts and Martin Scorcese as Vincent Van Gogh are just a few of the wondrous (and often strange) inhabitants of Kurosawa's dreamworld.

Some more suggestions:

Operation Pink Squad 1986 - Hong Kong (I think...) A very funny movie that resembles Police Academy

Operation Pink Squad 2 1989 - HK The follow up that is just absolutely bizarre. A comedy/horror flick that was shown last night as the Cult Movie. Brilliant stuff, I really couldn't stop laughing at all the sexual innuendos, and just the plot itself. Worth a look.

BTW, Young & Dangerous is a must have

While I wouldn't buy it on DVD I must admit that Operation Pink Squad 2 was hilarious. Two particular highlights included the guy getting beaten up for not using a condom and the parody of John Woo's A Better Tomorrow.

I second that! The reviews on Midnight Eye claim it to be one of Kitano's best thus far (to me that's really saying something, Dolls was incredible).

Also, how about GOZU - Miike Takashi (Japan).
Saw it at MIFF this year and it had me in stitches!

Another good one would be SHAOLIN SOCCER (Hong Kong).

Unfortunately, Miramax (aka Disney) has bought Shaolin Soccer. I think it was late last year or early this year - I remember it being on BBC World News. I think they're re-cutting it, calling it Kung Fu Soccer, and giving it a rap soundtrack (like they did turning Jet Li's Hitman into the gangstaz-friendly Contract Killer). From what I believe, this means it will either be very hard to get licensing or impossible to get it, but I'm not the expert on this.

Miramax also own Hero and all Jet Li films. Sad

In response to other posts - lots of great suggestions! Keep em coming. Cool

I'm not familar with Parasite Eve, Kakuto and Nuan (sounds very "Yimou") - will check into them.

Miramax also own Hero and all Jet Li films.


Miramax should die. They really screwed up Hitman.

Is it possible to see Zhang Yimou's movies out on DVD also?

I'd like to suggest the following if possible (since they fall under the Silk Screen banner):

- The Road Home (personal favourite)
- Raise the Red Lantern
- Hero


I'd like to add my vote to this. I love Zhang Yimou's work. I'd also love to see Farewell My Concubine getting a R4 release.

Apart from Kurosawa's catalog (I see Yojimbo has been announced for future release. MM better get Sanjuro as well! Releasing Yojimbo without following up with Sanjuro is like selling a bicycle that has a wheel missing), I'd really really really like to see Chushingura, the movie of one of Japan's most popular samurai folk stories, The Fourty Seven Ronin.

There's also the three movie series of Musashi Miyamoto: Samurai 1, Musashi Miyamoto, Samurai 2 Duel at Ichijoji Temple, Samurai 3 Duel at Ganryu Island. Musashi is considered one the greatest Japanese swordsmen to have ever lived.

All these Korean films:

No Blood, No Tears
Public Enemy
Tell Me Something
Tube
Attack the Gas Station
My Tutor Friend
Surprise
YMCA Baseball Team
Memento Mori
Whispering Corridors
Save The Green Planet
My Sassy Girl - Director's Cut only!!!
Whispering Corridors



None of them (that I am aware of) have a decent release with either english language extras or english subtitled extras, so would be good if they got a good release.
