Title: What is your favorite Japanese Movie?
Post by: burichu on March 16, 2007, 09:22:36 PM
My favorite right now by far is Lovely Complex.

You can watch it on Crunchyroll.com (http://www.crunchyroll.com/showseries?id=1326) for a lower quality or buy it at CdJapan.co.jp (http://www.cdjapan.jp/detailview.html?KEY=TBD-1133)

It is sooo funny, and Teppei makes you melt everytime he turns...oh gosh. ;-;
Shizu-chan is also in it and it makes me happy.

Info from Crunchyroll.com:

Live-action feature film adaptation of the best-selling manga "Love Complex"! Lisa Koizumi could be a bit shorter, her boyfriend could be a bit taller, and the two of them go through ups and downs during their time at Maido Gakuen! Though their eccentricitie, particularities, and tastes in food and music match, the two find trouble when boyfriend Otani meets up with his ex-girlfriend setting Lisa's heart on fire!

* All Hanshin-Kyojin as Themselves
* Ema Fujisawa as Risa Koizumi
* Hiro Mizushima as Ryoji Suzuki
* Nami Tamaki as Nobuko Ishihara
* Risa Kudou as Chiharu Tanaka
* Shosuke Tanihara as Kuniumi Maitake
* Susumu Terajima as Umibozu
* Teppei Koike as Atsushi Ohtani
* Yusuke Yamazaki as Heikichi Nakao
* Shizu-chan as Risa Koizumi's sister

Kamikaze Taxi (1995)

A young foot soldier in the yakuza seeks revenge when his prostitute girlfriend dies after a session with a high-ranking Japanese politician with a taste for torture. He sets out on a 'kamikaze' mission to kill his bosses and the politician; along the way, he acquires the aid of a taxi driver who has recently returned to Japan after living in South America for several decades and is struggling to cope with poverty and the prejudices of native-born Japanese.

^That was a good movie.  I had watch it twice to get some parts over, but it was good. :)  Was sad at the end though because of you know what.  Wasn't expecting it to happen at all. :(

My favorites;
-Battle Royale (because you can't go wrong with girls slaying girls.. lol. Ok, so there weren't just girls killing each other, but it's an awesome flick).
-Versus
-NANA
-Su-Ki-Da
-Tokyo Friends
-Linda Linda Linda
-Backdancers

lol.. I don't know if you see a trend in the movies I watch. xD  But I basically like anything with a love or music/dance storyline.  (With the exception of Battle Royale; because that's the only movie I like in that genre.  Suicide Circle was kind of lame :P)

Still Walking (歩いても 歩いても)

PLOT:
Quote
The Yokoyama family are briefly reunited to commemorate the death of the eldest son, Junpei, who drowned accidentally 12 years ago. His retired doctor father Kyohei and mother Toshiko are joined by surviving son Ryota, daughter Chinami and their respective families. The family share nostalgia, humour, sadness and tension as memories are shared and ceremonies performed.

What a great movie ! If you wanna learn a lot about the japanese culture I really recommend it ! You'll feel you're like a member of a family spending a week end together. The cast is also fantastic ! A great movie ! (bit sad though)

Title: Re: What is your favorite Japanese Movie?
Post by: ryohazuki on February 27, 2010, 07:24:58 PM
I might be a bit conservative in my taste but I really love most Akira Kurosawa's movies, the favorites being Seven Samurai and Rashomon. Kenji Mizoguchi is another favorite although his themes at least in the 50's are maybe too consistently about prostitution and woman's position in Japanese society. That doesn't make his movies any worse. Besides them Masaki Kobayashi's Harakiri might be the all time second best samurai movie ever. It has a very thought provoking story, hypnotic cinematography, great acting by Tatsuya Nakadai and others, very athmospheric music by Toru Takemitsu and great sword fights.

Of the bit more modern movies I like Takashi Miike's Audition and Happiness of Katakuris, Shinobu Yaguchi's My Secret Chache, Takeshi Kitano's Hana-bi and Sonatine, Yoji Yamada's Twilight Samurai, Hirokazu Kore-eda's Nobody  Knows and Naoe Gozu's Falling into The Evening, which sadly isn't released on DVD anywhere but in Japan. I've seen it several times on a worn out VHS cassette and I really love its melancholic athmosphere.

I think Hayao Miyazaki's Laputa - Castle in the Sky is still my all time favorite anime movie and one of the best movies in general. The action and humor is Miyazaki at his best and I really like the innocent and simple relationship between Pazu and Sheeta. I also like all the rest of his movies. I think either Princess Mononoke or Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind is his second best movie. Akira is usually criticized as too confusing and I also thought that way when I first saw it but it has grown in to me. The plot makes a bit more sense after you've read the manga but even if you haven't can't help loving the extremely detailed, expressive and smooth animation and unique soundtrack. Super Dimension Fortress Macross - Do you remember love? and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time are also great.

Love Exposure and Dear Friends.

I would love to see much more older Japanese movies. I have seen lots of anime movies too but its hard to decide what would be best. I love Miyazaki's movies much so maybe it could be Nausicaä and Laputa. One of my favourites is Grave of the fireflies too.. It makes me cry every time I see it.

There is no way that I could commit to one Japanese movie as my favorite, as there are plenty of genres and decades of fine films.
Lots of good movies named in this thread.........!!!!!!!!!!

Everybody needs to watch Love Exposure (愛のむきだし, Ai no mukidashi). It has everything, action, love story, comedy, cute girl... 4 hours of complete awesomeness.

I absolutely agree. Love Exposure is an extremely good movie. It's long, yes, but sooo good. When the ending credits started to appear, I was just sitting there, speechless, my heart pounding. I definitely recommend it.

Little trivia: the director wanted to make the movie 6 hours long, but the producers demanded that he cut it down to 4.

^^ I've seen Yamazaki in so, so many films, he really is one of the best actors ever from Japan. :thumbsup Think the best film he's been in is this one, easily in my top 5, think the 20th re-watch is on tap then. XD

^^ I got the DVD, can't believe it's still playable. XD First major role for Yamazaki was in High and Low from 1963, trailer doesn't do him justice but he played the cool villian.
High and Low (by Akira Kurosawa) american trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ketb1jdUxTw#ws)

Taxing Woman, The Funeral and Tampopo is the trifecta of great Yamazaki movies directed by Itami Juzo.  He's certainly adapted well in his new character roles (i.e. Saku's grandfather in "Sekachu").

I saw "High And Low" only a couple years ago.  Interesting, gritty feel from Kurosawa; very surprised by the blunt anti-drug theme for the early 60s.

My favourites so far :
Tenshi no Koi (I didn't know Sasaki Nozomi was so good at acting), Soredemo Boku wa Yattenai (kinda heavy, but inspiring), Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (any version).

back to  Tange Sazen: Hyakuman ryo no tsubo 丹下左膳 百万両の壺......the relationships between the characters played by Etsushi Toyokawa 豊川悦司, Emi Wakui 和久井映見, and the little boy, played by Akashi Takei  武井証, were fantastic .(in this scene, Sazen must tell the little orphan that his grandfather has died  :( )

for me, it's between Taiyou no Uta with YUI and Tsukamoto Takashi or Moon Child with Gackt, Hyde, and Wang Lee Hom <3
though of course, Kamen Rider movies hold a special place in my heart <3
particularly Kamen Rider x Kamen Ride W & Decade: Movie War 2010 <3 and Episodes Red and Yellow of the Chou Den-O Trilogy.

Has to be 199 Heroes of Super Sentai and OOO All Riders Let's Go Kamen Riders.

As for anime, I'd say The Cat Returns,as for drama,well I haven't really seen anything much like that,I have seen Ranma 1/2 live action but that could be considered a tokusatsu by some people.
