Re: Japanese cult cinema thread

Thanks!

What a shitty listing. No cast, crew, or cover scan; title all jacked-up.

Re: Classic Japanese Exploitation (pinky violence & pink)

There is one that Amazon refused to carry because of the cover art. I think it was EROS SCHOOL: FEELS SO GOOD. My favorites so far have been TRUE STORY OF A WOMAN IN JAIL: CONTINUES (which plays a lot like a pinky violence film) and ZOOM IN: SEX APARTMENTS.

Daft, couldn't take it seriously.
I thought this movie was abject shit, but then I have found pretty much every super-hero movie to be unwatchable. Too bad, because I like the source material, but they can never just present them as originally written.

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

I initially wasn't that crazy about FCS:J41, but the crappiness of that first R1 disc had a lot to do with it. The new one is miles better. I think this is a very good film, but I too am turned off by the cruelty of this series. It really requires a sense of detachment to enjoy the many great things...

Anybody know anything about Daiei's HIGH SCHOOL BOSS series, mostly directed by Michikio Obimori in 1970 and starring Eiko Yanami?

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

What's happened to the reviews? You could at least type a sentence, ratings alone tell you very little (especially when they mean totally different things to everyone here). Fair enough. BLACK OAK CONSPIRACY (1977) 3/5 Decent little fast-paced revenge film from the director of the Count Yorga movie...

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

I received the ZU 2-disc DVD today and am pretty happy with it. Next up I am looking to upgrade to anamorphic copies of the CHINESE GHOST STORY trilogy. Are the Blu-rays horrible? They seem to be about my only option.

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

I have heard that the sound is muffled on pretty much every ZU release. Probably has a lot to do with the film just sounding crappy to begin with, would be my guess.

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

The legendary Joy Sales "blue line," lol. Looks like the one to get, though. Never ordered from DDD and I'm a little a-scared to, but maybe I'll give it a shot.

Thanks again. Lots of good info.

Is this the Joy Sales ZU? It looks like there is also an anamorphic HKL release?

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

Ordered.

Read a not-so-hot review of the Blu of Zu. The deal-breaker was that they said the dark scenes were tough to watch. On hold until I learn more.

Can't believe IT'S NOW OR NEVER has fallen off the face of the earth. But apparently it has.

Great info as usual, HF. That HKL disc of NAKED KILLER is very tempting, but I have noticed that my current player does a horrible job with PAL discs that are sourced from NTSC. Now every PAL purchase is a roll of the dice. I still have a laserdisc with that international footage from ZU. I wish I k...

You guys did such a swell job with GREEN SNAKE (which I just received in the mail) that I would like to throw a few more at you. NAKED KILLER: Is there an uncut, anamorphic disc?
