Anyone watch Asian foreign films?
« on: June 21, 2005, 11:49:13 AM »
Besides watching anime, I like to watch films- being either films that come out in theatres or films I have to rent or d/l which are foregn films.
So far the foreign films I have watched are
Tale of Two Sisters (Korean horror/thriller)
Ong-bak (Thai action movie)
House of flying daggers (Chinese [Cantonese/Mandarine] twisted love story)
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Chinese [Cantonese/Mandarine] action love story)
Koma (Chinese [Cantonese] twisted thriller)
The Eye (Chinese thriller)
Inner Senses (Chinese [Cantonese] thriller)
Old Boy ( Korean twisted thriller)
Six Strong Guys (Chinese (Cantonese) comedy)
And thats all I can remember of now.
If you have watched any of these movies or other foriegn movvies, ,or would like to recomend any and tell about it- feel free  ;D (I'll glagly take suggestions for new foreign movies)

Taegukgi and Chingoo are two to get. Both Korean, both good. The subtitle for Taegukgi is The Brotherhood of War, and the translated title for Chingoo is Friend.

And Oldboy is mega badass.

Chingoo

Such a great movie...

And if you liked Ong Bak, you should see Born to Fight and the upcoming Tom Yum Goong...

There are just way too many good movies to list, but I would start watching some older classics and just start reading reviews as well... like say anything by Akira Kurosawa.

Also, one of my favorite Korean films is Attack the Gas Station... just plain awesome. Also, Sex is Zero, Shiri, and My Sassy Girl... just plain awesome.

Considering the movies you listed, I'm surprised you did not mention Ringu or Juon... but then again, you could have just forgot a few.

Oh, just some Japanese movies I'd look into... Ichi the Killer, Battle Royale (the sequel as well, although it pales in comparison by a long shot), and Suicide Club...

Honestly, just go to Blockbuster, they have probably 40-50 fucking awesome asian movies I would highly reccomend to anyone. Or maybe that's just my Blockbuster, I don't know.

oh thanks for the recomendations.
I dunno but my Blockbuster here is EMPTY with foreign films. They only have 3/4 of a row. Thats only like 25-30 movies! Most of them I've seen. But since they aren't Asian I dont watch all of them. ( I have nothing against otehr foreign films that arent Asian. ITs just that right now Im trying to watch all the Asian movies I can before I watch any other movies that are foriegn.... if that made sense...) Lucky for you, you got plenty. So thats why most of my foreign movies are bootleg. Although I wish they werent.

If you dig Ichi, you should check out Audition, also directed by Takashi Miike.

Audition was kinda lame :-\

Try to watch as many Japanese horrors as you can. Even if you don't like horror watch them. Now. Now. Now. Now.
As the universe expands, I contemplate whether it was God or the Big Bang that made man...

It's not Chinese. It's by the same director as Ichi the Killer, Takashi Miike.

It's also not "scary" per se.

I watch whatever asian films come on AZN Channel. Then of course I watch this one show called Popcorn Zen that shows film shorts. Very interesting films.

I did see Crouching Tiger. I don't know anyone who hasn't seen that movie. I loved it.

Temp sig set from a long time ago, only until I get around to making a new one. Been ages.
