PostPosted: Fri Dec 02, 2011 3:48 pm    Post subject: Your "Must See" Japanese Movies Reply with quote
Last week we released the first part of our Japanese Movies podcast where we tossed out 10 movies that we thought you should see, and in a couple days the wrap-up episode will be released where we give you our top 4 choices - our aim was to toss out ideas for movies that are interesting for one reason or another, and we avoided the biggest and well known classics, because everyone has already seen them.

So what are YOUR recommendations for interesting Japanese movies that everyone should watch (again, no need to mention anything by Kurosawa, everyone's already seen 'em)?

Any movies we mentioned in the podcast that you hate and can't figure out why we'd even bring it up? Did you agree with any of our recommendations? And most importantly, did you go out and see any of the movies we recommended, and if so, was it worth it?

Let's hear it!

2.Sinsengumi! (Dorama)

3.Harakiri

4.Genroku Chushingura (1928)

5.Onmyoji I and II

7.Samurai Assassin

8.When the last sword is drawn

#3 I'm sure anyone who watches Japanese movies will have already seen it, and #7 I'd bet a majority has. #5, haven't there been millions of these? Which ones are you talking about? I saw the one that came out in the early 2000's, and I thought it was terribly dull. I agree with #8, although it suffered from critically overdone and overboard melodrama and sentimentality at the end.

Anyone else? And anyone have any comments on the movies we presented in Part 1 of our movies podcast? http://samuraiarchives.podbean.com/2011/11/25/ep28-14-japanese-movies-you-should-see-part-1/
