Damn this release is loaded. Watched the interview with the actress and it was pretty fun. Spent at least 20-30 minutes reading the manga they included which is a pretty good chunk of it and it's great to see how closely the movie followed it. Got thru a little bit of the J-Taro interview.He comes o...

I'm a bit skeptical on these tokyo shock productions ever since Death Trance.

The only thing you can tell for sure their getting right in stuff TGP and The Machine Girl from the trailers is the gore since it makes up 75% of them.

Yes izo thank you very much for the info. Kinda suprised to be honest because I was actually not very impressed by the first episode particularly the choreography. Even though the second episode told a story I had already seen in the movie version I thought it was alot more polished. Here's waiting ...

Hungfist, I have a request. I picked up Lone Wolf & Cub TV volume 1. Apparently Teruo Ishii directs one or more of the episodes on the disc but Media Blasters fails to inform us which one. Any chance you can figure out for me which of the five episodes he directed? Watched the first two episodes...

Reika was just criminally cute.

The August lineup is sick.

Hopefully Exploitation Digital or Discotek nabs a few of those.


Which Fury Bancho is that vhs coverart piece from?

Taifu Club, yes, but don't say another word of it in this thread. That kind of purity should not even be mentioned in a thread that features Nikkatsu reviews... :lol: Anyways better late then never. Little warm up for synapse to release this hopefully sometime this year. If you like Kazuhiko Yamagu...

Looking forward to those caps. Reiko in bikini was hot, yeah. I also loved the car scene. Okay, I'm gonna go watch Red Peony Gambler 3 now :D Nice! I have a hard time picking a favorite out of the series. I love 1,2,3,5 and enjoyed 4 and 6 but felt they paled a little in comparison. I do remember t...

I thought the first film was good but not anything amazing. From your review it looks like i'm gonna have to order the second one and could probably live with skipping the third.

Abashiri is great! I was use to seeing Takakura as the strong silent type in the Red Peony films but in Abashiri he is a complete 180 and just as good if not better. Lots of Toei regulars and a damn well made film. Definately a "per quota" film raised above that stature by how great it is....

I watched Blossoming Night Dreams last night. It of course does not top the ending of Worthless to Confess(What ever will?). The overall movie leading up to this I enjoyed quite a bit more then W2C though. Reika Oshida is just adorable in this movie from beginning to end, to a degree I can't even fo...

Rica 3 (Konketsuji Rika: Hamagure komoriuta) (1973) In fact, the one remarkable black character the film has - God forgive me if I’m wrong – doesn’t even seem like she was born black... I thought the same thing.One doesn't wanna go assuming something but if you see her in that one screenshot you po...

Seems like I did build you up too much for Rica 2. :lol: I finally finished watching it and although I think I enjoyed it a bit more then you did I will agree it was not as good as the first. I'm actually really glad they went the route they did and didn't try to top the first because it probably wo...

Not meaning to diss Classique's opinions but I don't feel 701 and Zero Woman would be the best films for Brad to start with. 701 and Zero Woman were the first pinky violence films I saw myself. Back then I wasn't an exploitation fan yet, and neither of those films could turn me into one. I liked bo...

1.Female Prisoner 701:Scorpion
2.Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter
3.Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs
4.Female Prisoner 701: Jailhouse 41
5.School of the Holy Beast

Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter does not have any rape though some foreigners do try to force themselves on the girl gang before Meiko shows up to save the day.Don't think anything actually happened intercourse wise. The irony of that whole film is Meiko Kaji is the character 'hunting sex' so to speak bu...

I wouldn't know about the reviews. I haven't read any of them. Didn't really care for Female Yakuza Tale to be honest. You're weird :D How about Tokugawa irezumi-shi: Seme jigoku? I just thought FYT was a bit too much of a mess overall. I actually liked Sex & Fury more but I still ended up sell...

Panorama's Triple Cross dvd really does look bad: http://10kbullets.com/?p=993 While I don't agree with the film review I find it very surprising he doesn't mention the car chase sequences. Triple Cross is probably one of the three most remarkable car chase films of the 90's. R2J caps here (not the...

Classique, I hope I didn't disencourage you to write reviews. I could really use some help with movie introductions and reviews, in case you any have interest for it. I'll see if I can get Tokugawa onna keizu, Love & Crime and Ooku jyuhakkei reviews done at some point but I probably won't have ...
