5.0 out of 5 stars Homage from James Cameron, February 9, 2010
This review is from: Princess Mononoke (DVD)
I just watched the DVD today, I probably not the first person to mentioned this, so here goes. 25 minutes into the movie, I said to myself, haven't I seen this movie like in the last 6 weeks, OH YEAH!!, It's AVATAR ! the story line, the characters, the overt themes, the forest background, the little faires. Enough said, I still enjoyed both films. By the way I just found out that James Cameron is a huge J-Anime fan. Thank you.

This review is from: Innocent Love (DVD)
A lovely old fashion story about a young girl (Maki Horikita) going to the big city to escape from the ignorant country folks. In the big city she finds work and soon discovers a renewed faith and love. If only Amazon would use a 1-10 scale, I would give it a 9.
The cast is perfect, the story is written with several hidden themes and subplots that are quite startling.As for the music, throughout this series, the music is memorable and rather haunting, I was humming the theme song all through the day. Lastly, Maki Horikita looks amazing!!

This show is really funny! It takes two to three episodes to sprout it's wings, but it is worth it. SPOILER ALERT. The moment when a gun is pointed at Maki Horikita's character Chisato , you know they are attempting something different. Maki Horikita's ongoing personality in her previous TV shows/movies; she is always the pretty, but feisty Japanese girl.
In Atashinchi No Danshi, they take it to a whole new level. The story has Chisato facing many harsh decisions in a dysfunctional setting.Kind of like a insane asylum. However,she perseveres, sacrifices and ultimately succeeds. Highly recommended viewing!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nobuta Wo Produce - (Makeover of Wild Pig), July 1, 2009

This review is from: Nobuta Wo Produce (DVD)
This doesn't usually happen very often. As I watch the series unravel with plot developments and character changes, I could understand the popularity of the show. What suprised me was how I started to replay these scenes in my head. Things made more sense afterwards. Memories of the characters laughter and heartbreak play out with even more effect.

Kudos, once again to Maki Horikita ( I adore her!! ) I hope her career gets bigger and bigger. Maybe, she might want to go back to horror movies.Good screamer!! Highly recommended.

This is a definite improvement over the standard DVD. The DVD is 4:3 Letterbox not Widescreen. The colors were muted and the details were soft,soft.The Blu-ray copy resolves the colors into sharp details and the actor's emotions are not hindered whatsoever. This Blu-ray is not that much more in price and looks way better.

The series takes its time to begin, however when it starts to gain momentum. You will realize the skill of the cast, the director and the writers. By the end , if you are not touched by the series themes, motifs and direction, I would advise you to look somewhere else. This is definetly a underrated show. Kudos to Maki Horikita for her performance as the bully mastermind. Check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars In The Folds Of The Flesh, November 17, 2008
This review is from: In The Folds Of The Flesh (DVD)
Highly recommended film, full of plot twists and intrigue. Definitely not for the kiddies. You got animal killings, decapitations, flashbacks of cyanide poisonings, etc.. Whatever disturbing thing you can imagine somehow ends up in this film. The transfer is widescreen and not bad for the material. Good value for the buck.

I'll be rather straight-forward, I like this much better than Planet Terror. I know I am in the minority, but I can only express my own feelings. On the visceral level, it was truly high impact. On the emotional level, the many characters are given smart, sassy and even thought provoking dialogue. Tarantino should be applauded for taking a chance on what he wanted to do. I will furthermore state; this is a better film than Kill Bill Vol.One.

This review is from: The Psychic (DVD)
Watching the beautiful Jennifer O'Neill is one of the many treats of this truly great cinematic experience. "The Psychic" suprises in the typical giallo style, but it is so much more. It literally transcends the genre and becomes a truly psychological masterpiece. Lucio Fulci casts a spellbinding trance and never lets the viewer go.
Having seen many of Lucio Fulci's horror/gore flicks done after this amazing title, I wish he could have made more of these slice of death flicks. The only complaint which is slight; the audio on the Severin disc is relatively low. I had to really crank up my hi-fi. One of Fulci's best movies. Highly recommended.
