I would like to add
Hana and Alice from the director Shunji Iwai( love letter) and starring
Ann Suzuki, Yu Aoi.
Theres an excellent review at dvdanswers.
The korean dvds seem the choice, with better video and cover art.

The story of Qui Ju theres an Mei Ah out there but I would like to have the SBS subs.

My Sassy Girl a classic Korean flick.

All About Lily Chou-Chou. Mr. Green Mr. Green

from the sbs website;

MOVIE - DRAMA - ALL ABOUT LILY CHOU-CHOU (RIRII SHUSHU NO SUBETE)
Yuichi Hasumi (Hayato Ichihara) is in year 7 and is obsessed with the singer Lily Chou-Chou, running a cyber fan club chatroom about her, under an alias. One day a fellow fan, ‘Blue Cat' joins the chatroom and they become friends. At school Yuchi is bossed around by the school bully Shunsuke (Shugo Oshinari) and is reluctantly drawn into crime and violence because he fears Shunsuke. During the summer break where their group takes a trip to Okinawa, Shunsuke's character becomes worse and he turns into a cruel gang leader. Yuichi is drawn further and further into what started as petty crime and escalated to serious, cruel and violent offences. A Lily Chou-Chou concert reveals more than both Yuichi and Shunsuke can handle. (In Japanese, English subtitles) (2001) MA (V,L,A) (Rpt) WS

a quick glance over the previous posts raised some good choices;

First and Foremost...TAKASHI MIIKE!!! as many of his films as you guys can get your hands on. everyhting from shinjuku triad society onwards especially.

Second, more Hong Kong films. really big market for these i think. HK legends have got all the kung fu/action films covered (or at least big name ones) but theres thousands of underrated gems out there.

Third, Korean films are the way of the future...biggest growing asian film market, if you could get some Chan wook park apart from JSA thatd be great.

Tomu Uchida's 5 film Musashi series which hasn't been releases with English subtitles anywhere... In my opinion it's much better than Hiroshi Inagaki's trilogy because it stays way closer to Yoshikawa's novel.

One for the Director's Suite...the films of Luis Bunuel. Maybe the earlier L'Âge d'or or An Andalusian Dog (together most likely), though I'm pining to see The Exterminating Angel again. A certain episode of Buffy reminded me of that very film, whether or not it was an intentional reference Cool

Here's some stuff I'd buy (sorry for any spelling mistakes)

Sabu's films...
Drive
Monday


Shimotsuma Momotagari (I think its being released as Kamikaze Girls in the US)

Seijun Suzuki's films, in particular...
Branded to Kill
Pistol Opera


Any and all Beat Takeshi films

Early John Woo and Chow Yun Fat up to the Hard Boiled Era

Swordsman 1 and 2

Fong Sai Yuk 1 and 2 - these are my fave HK flicks from the early 90s, much better than Once Upon a Time in China IMO

Miike films, in particular
Dead or Alive
Happiness of the Katakuris


Keep releasing the Kurosawa stuff!

On the non-Asian film front I'd love to see Weekend by Godard and Solaris by Tarkovsky

Thanks for the suggestions. Out of these Nobody Knows is already taken. We just released Stray Dog already. Rasen and Tokyo Story we're releasing in November.

I believe Arita only exists within Jam Films. Need to check out the new animated Jam Films S too.

After another year at MIFF I have the following to recommend for EE:
SPIDER FOREST
THREE EXTREMES
A BLOODY SPEAR AT MOUNT FUJI
PRINCESS RACCOON
KUNG FU HUSTLE


A shame that so many of the other Asian titles were complete let downs. Saw around 30 films all up and many of the ones I thought would be winners were middleground at best (ie: Casshern, Blood & Bones, Godzilla Final Wars, President's Last Bang, The Big Swindle, Cafe Lumiere, Spying Cam, Izo, One Night In Mongkok, A World Without Thieves and Election). Kim Ki-Duk's 3-Iron was good but not quite worthy of purchase IMO.

I'm also a big fan of the spotlight directors - Uchida Tomu & Fruit Chan after seeing their retrospectives so anything from those quarters would be great, particularly A Bloody Spear At Mount Fuji, Chikamatsu's Love In Osaka, Made In Hong Kong and Dumplings.

The Take - Is Madman Films going to pick this up? If not, COME ON! It's just having a limited cinema release here, opening today .. I think.

Dying to see it.

Also, if it is possible; Turtles Can Fly.

ULTRAMAN NEXUS (URUTORAMAN NEKUSASU), TV 2004-2005, Japan
http://hicbc.com/tv/nexus/

Not sure if you'd cater for TV series. ULTRAMAN was first created by Eiji Tsuburaya (famed SPFX director of GODZILLA) for his company Tsuburaya Productions in 1966. NEXUS is the 18th show in the series, and was created as part of the Ultra N Project (involving the NEXUS series, a new motion picture, and live stage shows). It's a much darker and serious approach than most previous ULTRAMAN shows, and has been generally very well recieved by fans. Its' an extremely well written and acted show, with a very good character-based story arc that follows from start to finish. ULTRAMAN is a being of "light" which merges with human hosts to survive on Earth. Like GODZILLA, he regularly fights other monsters, but here to protect the humanity. There were 37 broadcast episodes (approx. 22-24mins each), with an extra one and an extended directors cut (both around 45mins) available on the Japanese DVDs. I personally think fans of GODZILLA would enjoy this show a lot. There are also lots of similarities to EVANGELION.

Nexus!? I remember that show when I was in Japan. Woah that show was... just amazing! I remember seeing the original Ultraman show but I mean this one, it was just so much more mature. It would be awesome if you guys release that show!

Thanks for reminding me of that show James!

The Man From Hong Kong - the current Australian DVD is cropped from 2.35:1 to 1.85:1 despite a new Digital Beta being made at the same time in the correct ratio? Any chance that Eastern Eye can handle this classic HK/Aussie crossover?

Thanks for going to the trouble of providing links - it makes it easier getting more info if needed. Smile

Your list certainly has some great films in there. At least one I can see is already released (The Last Blood) but I believe it's English dub only (according to EzyDVD). We're currently looking at Asian comedy as a market and romance might be a possibility in the future.

As for J-dramas... Asian TV drama is still a completely untested market in Australia. In my opinion I feel out of those, probably we'd look into K-dramas before J-dramas. Do you have any particular J-drama recommendations that might have broad market appeal?

Thanks to everyone who has put in suggestions. Keep em coming. Smile

Done. Loved this movie, but he is my favourite Korean director after all. Smile

For the people who recommended getting some Kiyoshi Kurosawa, we have acquired KAIRO (Pulse) for release, and it will be out next year.

Wow, Jim brought up the same series I was going to add.


Ultraman Nexus is an incredible show that has already proven itself amongst fans of Japanese Scifi all across the internet and otherwise. It'd be absolutely awesome if Madman picked it up.

I'm really hoping for a re-release of The Last Blood. I saw it on SBS and absolutely loved it. I knew it was available on DVD but when I went to buy it, I realized it was a Force brand AND it was in English. Not only do English dubs suck, but even if it was in Cantonese, the subtitles are always horrible on Force DVD's.

I don't really have any suggestions as to what would appeal to people. As you said, it's still an untested market so you don't really know what would do well but it'd be great to see some K-Dramas too.

I also thought of another title I'd love to see on DVD. Chinese Odyssey

The Man From Hong Kong was released on DVD in 2002 by Screensound Australia. Its listing at HMV claims to be 2.35:1 but I have it on good authority that its' been cropped to 1.85:1

Electric Dragon 80,000 volts
Kind of a more light hearted Tetsuo, with it's tongue in it's cheek about 2 men with supernatural electrical powers. Saw this at the Leeds film festival a year ago.
Cutey Honey
Live action addaption of the anime/manga of the same name, fun colourful film. Saw this one just before Electric Dragon last year.

Overtime
Tokyo Love Story (東京ラブストーリー)
Star Struck (スタアの恋)

I especially like Star Struck. The story is almost flawless and has a really great story line. It's similar to Notting Hill, but much better.

On another note, another Japanese movie MM should get:

Himitsu starring Hirosue Ryoko

A really good movie with a twist.

As for J-dramas... Asian TV drama is still a completely untested market in Australia. In my opinion I feel out of those, probably we'd look into K-dramas before J-dramas. Do you have any particular J-drama recommendations that might have broad market appeal?

Thanks to everyone who has put in suggestions. Keep em coming. Smile

some Kdrama suggestions
Emperor of the Sea
Jewel in the Palace
Hotelier
and the usual fluff
Full house DC
Misa
Winter Sonata
