anything more recent?
You should also give the classics a try.
The above mentioned titles plus a catalog of titles by Akira Kurosawa come to mind. I highly recommend Yojimbo, Throne of Blood, and Kagemusha to name but a few...
If you like Horror, check out the Original Japanese "The Grudge", called Ju-On. Additionally, there's a movie about a phone message that kills, (or something like that) that was seriously creepy.
i'm not much of a horror guy. are there any other new movies out there? i'm looking forward to watching space battleship.
Great film. My wife and I also thoroughly enjoyed it.
I recommend you checkout Yamato (animated or the recent live-action film) if you want to watch Japanese films with spaceships.
ya, cyborg girl was really great. i just started watching space battleship yamato( this is what you're referring to right?)
yasha-ga-ike, the English title is Demon Pond, revenge tragedy, love, demons, curses, a fun movie.
Daimajin, evil Samurai warlord and a statue that is inhabited by a vengeful god of war. Lot's of fun.
Also, Inagaki's Samurai Trilogy, the life of Miyamoto Musashi is great fun.
I especially recommend the first film in the Trilogy.
Now we know where Mr. Miyagi learned how to catch files with a pair of chopsticks!
are these recent movies?
Demon Pond is from 1979, Daimajin movies is from 1966, there is a Daimajin TV series made in 2010 which is set in modern times. I haven't seen it so I couldn't say how godd it may or may not be. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daimajin_Kanon
I'm looking through these suggestions again as I'm really enjoying Japanese films right now.
I finished watching the two 'GANTZ' movies and these were awesome!
I haven't seen a Japanese TV show so I'd like to check one out!
