Re: Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink)

Basically that list contains two kinds of titles: violent pink and "standard" softcore stuff. There are some cool ones from the former category, like Zoom Up: Rape Site, Woman in the Box 2, Rape! 13th Hour, White Rose Campus and Lolita Vibrator Torture. But it's sad the other genres get i...

Re: Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink)

Then again, I've been told at my face (well, screen) by web users that my recommendation are shit and those films are shitty artistic snooze fests with too little tits and ass. I guess that's the fundamental problem with a brand called Roman Porno that contains both great art (small minority) and l...

Re: Roman Porno Reboot (Sono, Nakata, Shiota, Yukisada, Shiraishi) (2016)

The way Nikkatsu has been pushing these, I'm certain we will see these films released in all major markets eventually. The only question that remains is which version will be made available to international buyers. There's a lot of precedent for licenses only bing offered for the shorter versions, ...

Re: Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink)

The only thing more hilarious than some of those retitelings is the fact that they put that list in their 2017 catalogue. How many of these films will actually be released in 2017? Considering they still haven't released all of the 27 titles of the batch they announced in 2009 I'd say... probably n...

Re: Roman Porno Reboot (Sono, Nakata, Shiota, Yukisada, Shiraishi) (2016)

... i think all of these (bar perhaps 'dawn of the felines') has been certified for HK release. now, considering physical media feels up in the air at the moment, i am not sure how likely they'll be to appear on DVD in subbed editions there.

anyone know what happened to the dvd releases of ishii's films in HK? 'night in nude' came out 18 months ago and is already OOP. i'd quite like to go back and pick up the more recent 'flower and snake' trilogy, which i believe came out in a set of 3 discs (as well as the individual ones) but i can't...

Re: Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink)

even though i can get them for $9 each, i've held off on many of them as those that i've bought haven't been upto much. 'sex apartments' is the only one i'd say was great, everything else pretty mediocre, except, at a push 'eros school' for being pretty outlandish at times. watched 'sex hunter - wet...

"cold fish" Guilty of Romance, not Cold Fish ;) I suppose international audiences would be even more disappointed if they knew they missed seeing Miki Mizuno having sex naked in the shower. Yes, that is the film's first shot in the Japanese version :lol: at least you knew what i meant.

Re: Cine Asia in administration

of course, most J films don't see a western release. one tactic to avoid not being able to cover everything is to try to give the impression you've been representative or selective, and this in turn requires a tactic of keeping quiet about what else might be out there. remember, we're talking about ...

Re: Cine Asia in administration
