    Jungle Juice (2002). Stars the main guy from Please Teach Me English (also in Volcano High) and some other guy. And a round-eyed girl who plays a goofy hooker and goes by the name of "Meg Ryan" except she keeps getting called "Meg Lion" b/c of the Korean difficulty with "Rs." Yep, it's that...

    My Friend & His Wife (2007) I'll be going through my "Korean not yet watched" DVDs this month. Tried My Friend & His Wife, which mas made by the same guy that directed Host & Guest. Maybe I'll call him the ampersand director. Well, I didn't much like it. About the same reaction as I gave...

    I've actually seen Cold Fish (via Netflix). According to my notes, I watched it in April 2014. I have vague recollection of it; certain scenes here and there. I remember appreciating it and rated it 3.5. I've been meaning to re-watch it. All of Sono's other films I've seen this year. A...

    I'm glad you enjoy my reviews/thoughts. As far as Sono goes, I may be at the end of the road for a while. I've seen everything offered on my Netflix plan, and, unlike Korean movies, I don't have a lot of enthusiasm for purchasing Japanese blind buys from YesAsia. I'm open to suggestions...

    Why Don't You Play in Hell? (2013) Well, well, well. Another Sion Sono film that showed up in my mailbox from Netflix. How about that. For the first hour, I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be gaining from this movie-watching experience. The plot was rather disjointed, popping between a...

    Tell No One (2006) I watched this on a recommendation from another forum. I liked it. Above average for sure. But going in I did not know it was a French movie. French movies generally irritate me. Mainly because the whole concept of France irritates me. Anyway, this is one of those...

    Ha. Not enough "lesbian stuff"? The trailer played it up somewhat. But damn, the girl looks like she's 12. At least in Memento Mori they were old enough to not ping too heavily on the perv radar. I"m not sure I would be bored, though. Something doesn't have to be "action-packed" to be...

    Sounds promising. I liked Memento Mori well enough, but it needed more "lesbian stuff" lol. Speaking of realistic scenes, there is a scene in Sex is Zero, where a drunk girl has to throw up. Rather than using deft editing or fake stuff held in the mouth until go time, the actress really did...

    If you do watch it, try to flush this entire discussion from your memory banks LOL. Much of the film's effectiveness depends on you not knowing what's really going on. Is it this? Or maybe that? Aha, that's what's going on. (20 minutes later)...well, no, it can't be that. Etc. It's still...

    I'm not quite sure from this comment. Did your distaste for the genre prevent you from ever seeing it? Or did you watch it and just not like it? I was just about to mention how much I love the "locked room mystery" or 1-setting films, if done well. Heck, I just watched Liam Neeson's...

    The Devil's Backbone (2001) Spanish gothic-style ghost story directed by Guillermo del Toro. Setting is a war-torn boarding school/orphanage set during the Spanish civil war. I'm not sure why this movie got so many positive reviews. It's at 7.4 on IMDb and 92% at RT. But it did nothing for...

    I really liked The Invitation a lot. I went into it stone cold, so I had no idea what it was about. I didn't see that coming. Or that. Or that. Every turn and reveal caught me by surprise. Yes, the big one, I "caught" it about 20 seconds before the reveal, but even that was perfect timing...

    I'm not "fed up" with him by any means! I liked his Love Exposure and Strange Circus so much that he bought himself a helping of good will from me. And Suicide Club I also gave a pretty good rating to, although with a couple of caveats. -------------------------------------- Why Don't You...

    I get that he ("Genesis") was supposed to be a red herring. The cops, for a moment, thought they had solved things. Even the viewers might have been inclined to tie them together, especially when Genesis kidnapped "The Bat." But a red herring in a mystery only satisfies if there is an "aha!"...

    Once a Thief (1991) Nope. Did not click with me. I like comedy caper films, but the overacting silliness in this one really put me off. I have to give some credit to the main performers (Yun-fat Chow, Leslie Cheung, and Cherie Chung, who is just cute as the dickens)--they really put their...

    Suicide Club (2001) Ok; I liked this quite a bit more than Noriko's Dinner Table, which I commented in either May or June's thread. I thought Suicide Club was set up as an interesting mystery and police procedural. Some good scenes, and the side-track with the faggy punker who lived in an...

    Ha. This is actually on my list of things to watch, as I'm going through a bunch of Sono films. In fact, I just watched Suicide Club last night.
