Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac (2010)

Image
picture stolen from here

Looks horrible, but Kevin states 40% of Maki's dialogue is supposed to be in English. And Ken'ichi Matsuyama is casted too. A super-movie. Maybe they will release an audio recording.

oh I forgot I had this thread too. Review for Amnesiac:

Maybe someone could do youtube compilation video of Maki's English language scenes. I really wouldn't care to waste my time watching the entire film.

I couldn't find her the last time I was in Japan. I wanted to ask her to marry me :D

I had to settle with sitting on the same bench as she did a few years back :D

劇場版 神聖かまってちゃん ロックンロールは鳴り止まないっ (Gekijō-ban Shinsei kamattechan rock 'n' roll wa nari yamanai) (2011)

Trailer looks better than band films usual:
http://www.kamattechan-movie.com/

Could this be the second good band film within short time (The Rise and Fall of the Unparalled Band was the other)... Hmm, maybe.

The film features a fictional story revolving around the real-life rock band Shinsei Kamattechan in the week leading up to one of their big live shows. Fumi Nikaido stars as a high school girl named Michiko who’s an aspiring shogi player that feels conflicted when she’s invited to the Shinsei Kamattechan by her boyfriend and the timing conflicts with an important shogo tournament.
- http://www.nipponcinema.com/tag/gekijob ... amattechan

"(Director) Yu Irie is best known for his 2009 movie “SR: Saitama Rappers” and its 2010 sequel “SR: Saitama Rappers 2"... Actress and model Fumi Nikaido (16) is billed as the star of the film.... dult actress Kurumi Morishita (31) will make her big screen debut in the film, playing a single mother named Kaori who works a cleaning job during the day and as a pub dancer at night."

Tantei wa Bar ni Iru (2011)

"Based on Naomi Azuma’s novel “Bar ni Kakatte Kita Denwa”, the second installment of the author’s “Susukino Tantei” detective series, the film stars Yo Oizumi as a private detective who bases his business out of a bar in Susukino, a red-light district in Sapporo, Hokkaido. In keeping with that premise, Oizumi’s character turns to the audience in the teaser and says “If something comes up, call me here.”

One day, he receives a call from a mystery woman (revealed in the teaser as being played by Koyuki) who gets both he and his combative-yet-reliable partner Takada (Ryuhei Matsuda) involved in a dangerous new case."


Teaser:

Shot in Sapporo. In winter. Gotta see this.

Now this is strange. Masato Harada's intersting film Kamikaze Taxi will finally be released on R2J, but it will be the 140 min international version. The R1 by Media Blasters is the 169 min Japanese version.

We've got the Japanese version available in the US, and the International version available in Japan...

I've seen the film on TV, and even owned it on VHS. I suppose it was the shorter version...

Thanks man. That clip makes me happy. Hopefully Asami Sugiura will get to do some more acting with her clothes on though I don't really mind if she stays with the AV path.

She's certainly busy in "mainstream" cinema. IMDb (probably missing half of her roles) alone lists 11 films for her for 2010.

This year I already saw her in Karate-Robo Zaborgar

And last year I got some candy from her :D

(ok, the candy was thrown at me, rather than "given" to me :D )

I'd like to taste her sweets if you know what I mean...

On a more serious note I too am aware that she has done more movies than there are listed on IMDB. Too bad most of those movies aren't all that great (I'm guessing). Maybe Asami can be my Kana Hanazawa of the live action world. I watch a lot of crappy anime just for Hanazawa so guess I could do the same for Asami.

Schilling review

"...there's something inspiring about stars who enthusiastically tumble down a huge snow bank or get buried in a deep snow ditch without a CG or stunt assist. It also proves that old-school action can still entertain. Somewhere, Yusaku is smiling."

Unbelievably crap artwork, but at least the transfer should be native ntsc. The Third Window Films release is standards conversion.

Been wanting to see the film forever, but seeing the artwork makes me wanna go for the R2J instead.

Not such a good film, but Yu screencaps always worth posting.

One Million Yen Girl (2008)
Yuki Tanada missteps into mainstream with a poorly constructed screenplay, however, the pic is semi-saved by the brilliant Yu Aoi. Opting for an episodic structure the film follows a troubled 21-year old girl (Aoi) who travels from one city to another, always settling down for a short period of time, and then packing her bags once she has saved 1 million yen to ensure a smooth start in the next location. It has several good moments and some wonderful images, but the structure is frustrating – every time the ground up work is done, the process will reset. In the end, the film comes out very conventional, especially in terms of a side plot featuring a bullied little brother. That being said, the stunningly beautiful and equally talented Yu Aoi shines at every turn the screenplay allows her to.
