    This is a good idea. It is odd that we don't have some kind of running Movie/TV thread.

    You should change it to something like "Films and TV - What are you watching?" or "Films and TV - The Criterion Faggot Collection" or "Films and TV - OH MY FUCKING GOD I LOVE ANIME!"

    Done.

    The main character in Ninja Assassin is played by Rain, a Korean popstar.

    He also stars in "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK", an excellent movie by the guy who directed Oldboy.

    It's a shame his music isn't as good as his acting ::erm::

    Oddly, I've never seen "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK." I say "oddly" because I friggin' LOVE Park Chan-Wook's Revenge Trilogy and I've been trying to watch everything this guy has done. He's brilliant.

    Seriously, guys. Go watch Lady Vengeance and Oldboy. That shit rules.

    ... And this is exactly how you sell a movie to me. Now I HAVE to see this!

    I'm watching Japanese dramas up the wazoo... Right now I'm watching Gakko ja Oshierarenai (School Can't Teach You This) because I recently became a fan of Aoi Nakamura~ Also watching Yankee-kun and Megane-chan, Indigo no Yoru, and a bunch of shows from the 80's.

    I swear there was a thread like this once. xD
    Nevertheless, this is a good idea.

    If only I had something to contribute. xD

    A friend and I watched all his movies the summer before college. I literally ordered a Thai version of Cyborg because it was the only legit one I could find that had English subs at the time ::meev:: (obviously it's his least popular film)

    It is a really good movie, but it's not quite as good as the Revenge Trilogy. Of course, it's more of a romantic comedy so that's really comparing apples-to-oranges, but it's not going to blow your mind the way the Trilogy did. I highly recommend it though.

    I still have yet to see Thirst.

    It also took me a while to realize that the 'poet' was in fact a woman ::meev:: And here I was "What a beautiful armenian man".... lol.

    Anyway, I just finished watching The Fifth Element for probably the 120th time in my life.

    Yes it was a pretty good one! The atmosphere is interesting actually, for a French movie, it's quite excepitonal (I hate French movies) and it's an adaptation from the Spanish novel "El Club Dumas".
    I'll now watch Interview with the Vampire for the 14754859th time, damn I watched the Queen of the Dmaned some months ago, what a shitty movie o__o

    "I won't argue that it was a no-holds-barred adrenaline fuelled thrill-ride, but there's no way that you could perpetrate that amount of carnage and mayhem and not incur a considerable amount of paperwork."

    I don't watch TV except for when Top Chef is on (although it gets lamer each season).
    And I just watched Metropolis, the classic Fritz Lang silent film . . . let me just say that I have found my new favorite movie.

    ^^ I liked that movie too. Apparently they've recovered like 20 minutes of lost footage a few months ago that really changes the story.
