Neighbor Number 13

Neighbor Number 13

Neighbor No. 13 (Rinjin 13-gô)  (2005) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0443205/ Directed by Yasuo Inoue Disturbing. That pretty much sums up this tale of duality from Japan where a nice, quiet neighbor has an extremely dark and violent persona that lives within him. He can’t control it and I honestly think he doesn’t want to. This persona takes care of him and makes sure he’s safe and this story explores what happens to the unfortunate few who get to meet the dark side … Read entire article »

Alphaville

Alphaville

Alphaville, une étrange aventure de Lemmy Caution (1965) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058898/ Directed by Jean-Luc Godard ( Masculin féminin: 15 faits précis 1966 ) Godard tries his hand at Dick Tracy-like science fiction in this film about secret agent Lemmy Caution’s exploits in the city of ALPHAVILLE where love and self expression are outlawed. The science fiction side of things leans towards the real and less fantasy,  but is fun to explore with the lead. The narration is provided by a … Read entire article »

The Machine Girl and Machine Girl Lite

The Machine Girl and Machine Girl Lite

Machine Girl (2008) -Kataude mashin gâru- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1050160/ Machine Girl Lite (2009) -The Hajirai Machine Girl- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1319567/ Remember The Road Runner cartoon? Of course you do. Well, MACHINE GIRL and MACHINE GIRL LITE are the live action, Japanese action, deadly schoolgirl versions of the same. These films are candy for the fans of over the top, cartoon style gore and violence. It’s so damn silly that the violence becomes second to the pure comedy goodness of the absolutely silly plot … Read entire article »

There are times when an adult is transported back to a simpler time of childhood wonder and excitement. That excitement fills a person with warmth and makes them feel wonderful for a moment. Those times are not often felt as an adult and they are so nice when you stumble upon them. When TRICK ‘R TREAT was finally released from … Read entire article »

Thirst (Bakjwi)

Thirst (Bakjwi)

Thirst (Bakjwi) 2009  Chan-wook Park http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0762073/ Chan-wook Park takes a break from the world of vengeance to slip wondrously into the surreal and mythic with a take on the vampire mythos that struck home for me. Kang-ho Song (The Host) plays Priest Sang-hyeon – a priest who volunteers to be a guinea pig of sorts to help find a cure for a horrid, 100% fatal disease. He survives…but with some truly horrid side effects. When he returns … Read entire article »

The Sky Crawlers

The Sky Crawlers

Sky Crawlers (2008)    Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1056437/ First, let me say that this is not your usual, giant robot anime. There are no monsters. There are no powerful and magical battles being waged between tall haired tweens. While it does fall into the  fantasy and science fiction genre, it approaches it with a real world flair and concentrates on people more than just amazing flying machines. Enter the world of THE SKY CRAWLERS – an … Read entire article »

FLCL

FLCL Kazuya Tsurumaki http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0279077/ Japanese animation or “anime” (please don’t call it “Japanimation” – dear lord….) is hit or miss.  There are some fantastic sci-fi shows like GHOST IN THE SHELL, some great children’s fair like TOTORO and KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE, and some truly touching stories like GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES that will have your heartstrings tugged so hard it hurts. FLCL or Fooly Cooly is just a crazy science fiction romp that will have you wondering what … Read entire article »

Turn Left, Turn Right

Turn Left, Turn Right

Turn Left, Turn Right (2003)  Johnnie To and Ka-Fai Wai http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367174/ In short, this film will give you insulin shock with how sweet it is. It’s a romantic comedy in the classic Asian tradition. Two people are meant for each other and – time and time again – miss each other by inches. Fate keeps sending them in opposite directions and on a series of near misses. It’s a fairytale and so light it will have you … Read entire article »
