I'd recommend Automaton Transfusion. It maybe a small, cheesy independent zombie film, but there is a good scene in there, haha! :D

I just watched Thirst, the latest film from Park Chan-wook, who directed Oldboy, Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance and Lady Vengeance. It's about a Catholic priest who gets accidentally turned into a vampire when he undergoes a medical experiment to cure a fatal disease. It's a funny, twisted flick!

Death Note if you haven't seen it was good and I'd recommend...but maybe this falls more into the Japanese SciFi realm??

also, make sure you get BOTH films before watching because you don't want to sit around waiting for the 2nd one to show up in suspense

Man this forum is dead. Doesn't anyone else care about non-Kaiju films? :P

I recently saw the live action film of Time Traveller: Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and Adrift in Tokyo. I enjoyed both films very much and high recommend them both.

If anyone else could recommend me some more semi-lighthearted films like these that take place in a modern Japan that'd be great.

My favorite non-Japanese films are probably Chungking Express and Fallen Angels. Highly recommend these to anyone fascinated by Chinese locations/environments.

Just watched Linda Linda Linda. Pretty good film. It's basically about Japanese high school girls forming a band. Has the girl who played the sister in the Host in it. She's a really good actress in this film.

Just finished watching Rurouni Kenshin. The anime is one of my favorites, and the live action version did not disappoint me in the least! I have no complaints about the casting or the merging of different story arcs, it was all done very well. And the action was excellent! If you're a fan, watch it!

Know what I recommend?!

Wheels On Meals!

Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, sell Chinese fast food out of their food truck in 1980s Spain, while coming across a beautiful girl who is in trouble with organized crime. Sammo Hung plays a bumbling private detective who gets caught up in this entire thing.

YES!!

This is a very fun action comedy from the Little Dragons trio. It has some good comedy and great fight/action scenes. The Jackie Chan vs Benny "The Jet" Urquidez fight is one of my top favorite fights of all time. Another really good movie with these three stars is Dragons Forever, which is the last time all three have been on screen together.

If you've seen the Indonesian martial arts film, The Raid, starring Iko Uwais, check out his first film Merantau. It has a similar feel to Ong Bak where its about a country guy discovering the big city and getting into trouble. If you haven't seen The Raid, watch both :D They both have a different feel, action-wise, to most Hong Kong or Japanese action films.

I like both of those films... they fit very well together.

Uzumaki

Sakuya slayer Of Demons


Uzumaki is a lot of weird fun. And Zeiram I might have seen the anime. can't remember if I've seen the live action films though. And Sakuya I've always wanted to watch, just had a hard time finding it. As for recommendations, I also recommend Audition, Orochi the eight headed Serpent (by ADV films, can't remember what it was called in Japan), the Great Yokai War, Shinobi: Heart Under Blade, and House (1977)
