How about movie version of dramas? Same story just shorter with different actors.

Sekai No Chushin De Ai Wo Sakebu, Ima, ai ni yukimasu, Densha otoko, Satorare, and Taiyo no uta. The two Umizaru movies are header and footer to drama series with the some of same actors.

Ok, here some other movies I liked that I can look up.

Shinobi, Yomigaeri, Tengoku No Honya-Koibi, Tokyo Zombie, Quill, Koi no Mon, "Josee, the Tiger and the Fish", Swing Girls, Distance, Tokyo Biyori, Kamikaze Girl, Drugstore Girl, Hana and Alice, Amemasu No Kawa, Coffee Jikou, the Taste of Tea, Hatsukoi, Miracle in Four Days, GeGe, and much much more.
Please do not PM me about seeding any of my old torrents, as most of files that had uploaded are no longer on my computer.

Finally got around to watching Swing Girls the other day and it's great... Highly recommended. :)

Like the drama Nodame Cantabile, the music makes it stand out. :thumleft:

You might like "Linda, Linda, Linda". It is a little slow moving but that's kind of the point and it makes the climax that much more enjoyable.

Search for it as "Lady Snowblood". That's how I found both movies.

Tarantino took some scenes from it for Kill Bill and the actress, Kaji Meiko, is who sings the two enka songs used at the end of each Kill Bill.

i'm curious about 'Seven Samurai'. Is it about 8 ball of Satomi famitly?

i watched seven samurai (not sure the name) but actress was 'Hiroko Yakushimaru' very very old one.
Then this year i watched 'Satomi Hakkenden'.

Main story is quite similar but details are totally different.

Anyone can tell me about actual story in japan.......

i don't think anyone mentioned this jmovie one yet, Twilight Samurai
It's kind of hard to find but it's one of the best samurai movies i've never seen. It's a bit weak on the fight scenes and it doesn't even focus on that. However, the story is very subtle but very engaging.

I just finished watching Death Note 1 and 2 and just have to recommend them to everyone.
The main to actors were brilliant I loved these movies! A great portrayal of the manga!!!!
I have to agree with you on this one. It was a different cat and mouse movie. I enjoyed every minute of it. Great performances from fujiwara tatsuya and matsuyama kenichi. :thumright:

boo T_T it seems that people dont reply in this thread very often ;_;' oh well >o<
Try Love Letter... it starts off slow but it's a nice sentimental movie. Then there's Tada Kimi wo Aishiteiru/Heavenly Forest. If you haven't seen these, I think they'll do the trick.

hello,
I had a quick view through several pages and I'm impressed. I was just wandering if it's against the rules to recommend any korean/chinese/taiwan movies?

The things I would recommend:
One missed call 1 and 2
Visitor Q
Ichi the killer
Izo
Zebraman
Battle Royale 1 (2nd part was ****)
Neighbour no. 13
Postman Blues (and loads of others directed by Sabu)
Mibu gishi den / When the Last Sword Is Drawn
GTO TV
Cashern
Zatoichi (2003)
Brother
Gohatto
Stand Up
Dollmaster (although I'm not sure if it's Japanese)
Stereo future
Versus
The Messenger by Ryuhei Kitamura
Saam gaang yi / Three Extremes
If I will recall any other interesting one I will post them aswell, I watched too much to remember it all :D

Most of the time after watching a good movie I was checking any other films of the same director / good actors, and it works ;D

Anybody interested in anime here?

I'd suggest using this thread for anime...
Read the D-Addicts FAQ before asking questions.
No movies here, so please don't request. Check the Asian Movie Torrent Links.

twilight samurai was good, and just watched seven samurai, super good, i cant say enough about seven samurai, i thought the omega man was good, oh no, this epic 3.5 hr drama was soo gritty and real, if you have a chance to see it -do it. it was made in 1954 and totally ahead of its time, sure some of the deaths arnt believeable, but that dosent matter, i pay kowtow to my local library. fini

Does anyone know of any good japanese movies, kind of like Tokyo Tower? (Matsumoto Jun.) or Nobodys Home? I've been looking for more movies of that dark kind of intriguing theme.

I just saw Tegami (2006) starring Yamada Takayuki, Sawajiri Erika, and Tamayama Tetsuji.
Absolutely incredible movie. The acting, story, everything was just perfect, and the ending was insanely touching. This movie gets a hard push from me.

I can also vouch for Yoru no Picnic (2006), a nice nostalgic movie especially if you've went to school in Japan before.

For some weird reason I'm really fond of "Kikujiro no Natsu" with Beat Takeshi.
It's just so weird, lovable and heartwarming. Typical japanese sense of humour...

It's about a former yakuza who takes care of a little boy, and their roadtrip around Japan to find the boys mother. And then of course, all sorts of strange things happen....

I know a lot of people disagree with some movies that I gave really low ratings, or too high, but there are some movies that are just too good to dislike :wink:

Where do you watch them?
There's a YSI (direct download) rotation thread I maintain in JPM: http://www.jpopmusic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=69055
I basically upload 1 or 2 of my favorite movies/week. Also some permanent megaupload links uploaded by a friend.

I get most new movies from various trackers, but most of them are private and needs luck (they only allow new registrations after deleting inactive/abusive accounts) or donation/invitation to join. Only new movies are well-seeded too. Best way of getting older Japanese movies is by clubbox through searches in http://www.filedic.com

I liked watching Shissou -Dead Run-. I thought that was a good movie. A bit dark, but it was a movie I thought about afterwards, instead of forgetting it the next day.

I must agree with 8thsin. I just saw Tegami as well.. absolutely fantastic..

It made me misty-eyed.. which I hardly ever come close to when I watch movies. Plus, Kazumasa Oda's "Kotoba ni Dekinai" is in it which is an absolutely beautiful song.

And Yamada Takayuki is one of my favorite actors ^^.

Here's a link to a music video made for the movie if you want to hear the song and see a preview of the movie

^ Yeah, the ending = perfect. I'm really glad I finally watched it. I actually deleted it the first time because the earliest DVDrip (I think postx) I got was sooo bad. Then I forgot about it until I saw some positive reviews in Yahoo! Japan Movies.


Anyways... I just saw this preview in FSS, it looks SICK!!
