Re: Kinema Junpo's Top 198 Japanese Films

HOUSE (#160) is really the 1977 film, yes?

Re: Japanese cult cinema thread

In my opinion and the opinion of many others I have read, yes, the original Female Prisoner Scorpion films are good. Some of them are very good. I think there are two or more sets available, and I am not certain which one you are referencing. HANZO didn't do it for me, but I gather that many people ...

Re: The Modern Japanese Exploitation Thread

Trailer for Sukeban Hunters double: http://www.nipponcinema.com/trailers/sukeban-hunters-soukatsu-nagurikomi-sakusen-trailer/ Kevin mentions it looks like influenced by Norifumi Suzuki's Sukeban movies. That's certainly true, yet this one doesn't look so good, while Suzuki's film's were so good. So...

Re: The Classic Japanese Exploitation Thread (Not Work Safe!)

Sorry if this is not the optimal thread for this post. I noticed four sweet-looking boxed sets of the Japanese TV series PLAY GIRL (1969-74?) for sale at Yesasia. Anyone know how many episodes were produced and what percentage is covered by these sets?

Re:

Toei February 2008: Furyo Bancho 11-16 (the end, as far as I know). Don't know if this was ever discussed, but I think there was sort of a 17th film, a crossover between Furyo Bancho and some other series with which I am unfamiliar. I seem to recall finding a DVD listing on Yesasia with some diffic...

Re: United Red Army (Wakamatsu, 2007)

Well, mission accomplished, as I was the one who had not heard of this. Not a fan of the director, and the subject matter and running time make this a deal-killer. The music in the trailer did indeed rock my junk, however.

Re: The Classic Japanese Exploitation Thread (Not Work Safe!

Yeah, I wish I could get more excited about the Synapse 27. I will be watching this release roster take shape with the short eyes of a movie pervert, but at the end of the day I am pretty much just interested in the girl gang movies. I am counting on you folks to let me know if any of the titles tur...

Re: The Classic Japanese Exploitation Thread (Not Work Safe!

Thanks for the prompt response. They saved MAKO for last!? Dorks. I swear that looks just like Ike to me, but, a) I dimly remember seeing a still from the movie with what must have been the same girl, but she looked much less like her, and, b) I'm sure they'd play up her presence in the DVD promotio...

Re: The Classic Japanese Exploitation Thread (Not Work Safe!)

Picked up BAD GIRL MAKO. My first Junko Natsu movie. She's very skinny. You will not get film criticism of such profundity elsewhere. The film is very colorful and and begins with a bowling scene, followed by a shakedown of an unlucky male bowler by a girl gang. How bad could it be? Hopefully the ru...

If Yuri is the guy who gets robbed in the cemetery at the start of GIRL BOSS GUERILLA, who is the quack doctor to whom they take the injured nun later in the same film?

Re: The Classic Japanese Exploitation Thread (Not Work Safe!)

While the final TERRIFYING GIRLS' SCHOOL film is my least favorite as well, it does have some stuff going for it. I love the way the creepy music builds over the main titles. First a stripper drumbeat, then weird electronic whistles, then the ominous violin. Nice cap of the Ike/Ema fight. I love tha...
