I saw "Twilight Samurai" (Tasogare Seibei) the other day.
It was great! The film has integrity and beauty. Not a single scene was wasted.
It had a very good review on news paper in Australia. 👍

My favorite Japanese movies are:
1- Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (A masterpiece)
2- A Scene at the Sea
3- The Summer of Kikujiro (Kikujiro no Natsu)
4- Chicken Heart
and also I love Shogun since my childhood. But it is really hard to find specific DVDs of Japanese movies here in Turkey so the ones I wrote above are pirated DivXs which I have :( I am sorry.

[Off topic ps: please do not offer me to order from Amazon or etc. because I need Turkish subtitled DVDs = region 2 :.( ]

Hey Daft, do you remember the scene in Versus when the crazy guy slaps the living crap out of the short dude with the endless supply of guns? That scene was hilarious! Speaking of guys, did you notice that the last gun the scaredy cat guy pulled out had a price tag on it?

In addtion to Versus, I adore Princess Blade and So Close.

No it is the part of the song Endless rain from X japan. It was japanese rock band. Strongly recommended to listen to their music. They have beautiful ballads. 😊 😊

Throne of Blood
Zatoichi
Audition
SharkSkin Man and Peachhip Girl
HIgh and Low
Seven Samurai
Battle Royale


Personally yawned through JU-On nothing scary about a long haired girl crawling down the stairs...sorry guys.
Rungu didn;t do it for me either.
The Ring was ok, but neither version had me jumping out of my skin....all were ok at best.

Off topic a little, I loved the Korean movie, Tale of Two Sisters, at least there were some scary moments in it and the DTS is sweet.

Lots to choose from out there.... :)

I don't like Japanese horrors, because I'm afraid. Really xDD
I like Japanese dramas, action movies, samurai movies (esp. Kurosawa movies).

So far one of my favourite Japanese movies is called Gozu. It was recommended to me by a fellow member named Yukio Michael. It was a strange, quirky, almost David Lynch's Mulholland Drive-type movie. Alot of surrealism. I was quite entertained.
