Posted:zatoichi is a fooking brilliant film.

the old series of flicks (not takeshi) is a wicked story too if anyone's completely addicted (like i used to be redface).

Posted:i'm pretty much studying japanese films on my own as i failed my film studies class cuz i wasnt too interested in finding out about hollywood film industry or british film industry

it was interesting for w a while but...yeh

i have watched alot of takeshi kitano films and loads of asian films simply because im utterly obsessed with alot of asian things....WOOH

i think the old series of zatoichi did get a bit repetative towards the last film in 89 but they were a good laugh lol

i'm sure everyones seen the classic seven samurai film and lots more of akiras work.....genius

anyone a takashi miike fan?
ichi the killer audition etc

and how about kim ki duk a korean director, if you havent seen any of his films go rent 3 iron....AMAZING stuff

oh and keep your eyes on the video section as i'm releasing another video soon
