A Woman Called Abe Sada

lust... caution

(Edit) 02/03/2010

Having seen the Realm of the senses (in which both films get their original true story line) this film I feel is better and easier to watch, this seems more real than 'senses', however this may not be as lavish in production as the other.

Having said that this is a short gorgeous/sad/romantic movie... showing how the lust can bring a man and woman together (more so than the love behind the lust).

A perfect addition to the Pinky Cinema that Japan is in part so famous for!

Surviving Evil

decent horror

(Edit) 02/03/2010

Ok I maybe a little one sided with this one... but Im going to give this film credit for setting the movie in the Philippines (however it was filmed in South Africa) having friends out in this country, I find it hard to get movies with a Filipino theme in the UK.

The story is based on Filipino folk lore, mixed with some history of when the Japanese made their mark on the country. The movie is similar to any horror where the characters get lost in the woods (well Island/Rainforest) and eventually meet their end!!!

Even though the film isnt the best horror out there, its still more watchable than most

The Shinjuku Incident

a real crime story!!!

(Edit) 02/03/2010

when first heard about it - banned in china is what one magazine said - dont know if this is true, but easy to see why. Jackie chan disrobe's his 'mr nice guy' image for something more gritty and in some respects shocking, to see the Jackie go against type casting... and its all the more better for it.

the film hasnt much of the action you may find in most of his films, but it does rack up a lot of tension. Film fans may see the movie may magpie from other movies (casino/carlitto's way/scarface) the film in some respect reminded me of Nick Bloomfields amazing doc 'ghosts' which also deals with the subject of Immegration.

All in all, a brave move from Jackie, maybe even braver than some of the stunts he has done in lesser years... to be cast in such a ''dark'' role.

Fans may not enjoy the fact that some of the action trade marks arnt in the script, but I for one was happy to see Jackie cast along side other great actors... than arnt just Chris Tucker!!

very impressive indeed
