fav jmovie live action
I've seen lots of them. Lots of Kurosawa of course. Lots of Kenji Mizoguchi too which I like very much.
A favorite movie series of mine is Zatoichi which tells the adventures of a blind masseur who happens to be a great swordsman despite his lack of sight. He travels the roads and villages of Japan and always ends up getting involved in yakuza clans shenanigans.
Masaki Kobayashi's Harakiri (1962) is an absolute classic too.
Lady Snowblood (Toshiya Fujita, 1973) starring the amazing Meiko Kaji
Love Letter (Shunji Iwai, 1995)
Kamikaze Girls (Tetsuya Nakashima, 2004)
And of course, lots of animated movies!
Love letter is iconic. It was probably the first Japanese live action film I watched as a kid.
there are lot starting from films of Akira Kurosawa
but i have watched movie "As the Gods Will" (2014) yesterday
it has been out for 7 years, i have only watched yesterday
what is ur fave jmovies ?
For live action this one is definitely one of my favorites!
I also really enjoyed Lesson of the Evil!
I actually really liked the Death Note live actions (not the Netflix one obviously). I think Kenichi Matsuyama did a great job as L. Nothing can compete with the anime, tho..
I used to stay up late to catch Movie Macabre with Elvira on weekends during the 80's. I was thrilled to hear finally after 20+ years they were going to release some of the shows on DVD.
The one reason to buy was to see Elvira host the movies and add her comedic take on the film. Her over the top character and dialog filled with innuendo was what made her fun to watch.
Rurouni Kenshin is good
