Visitor Q (NSFW) (Gore)

2 08 2009

Visitor Q is a japanese disturbing gore movie by Takashi Miike which I only read about, but don’t really mean to watch. 😛

As you can see from the trailer, it doesn’t even had many scenes so strong and disturbing the movie is.
It has strong sexual content, so absolutely not intended for minors, but I have my doubts it’s even intended for normal human beings! xD
Never watched it, I know a couple of other Takashi Miike movies like Audition and Koroshiya Ichi, but after reading the full sinopsis of Visitor Q, I decided not to watch it… 😛
So, what’s the purpose of the post? Well, if you are a gore movie fan with stomach enough to watch one with such themes, have a good time with it! xD
This is also an interesting “dark side” of japanese cinema most people don’t really know.

Survive Style 5+

2 08 2009

Another crazy creation of the new japanese cinema school, featuring british actor Vinnie Jones in the role he plays best: A thug contracted killer.

Different from most movies I presented so far though, Survive Style 5+ is less on the gory, disturbing or overall “adults with strong stomach” side, and more on the “weird” sense.

Suicide Circle / Suicide Club (Gore)

1 08 2009

In Japan, it’s known as Jisatsu Circle or Suicide Circle. Has been translated to the english title Suicide Club.
It’s a very disturbing movie that’s part gore, part police investigation, part suspense.
Don’t watch it if you have a weak stomach or don’t like the gore genre!

The story goes about the investigation on a series of mass suicides that starts happening in Japan.
For those who watched or know about it, the most shocking/disturbing and famous part happens right in the beginning of the movie, when 54 schoolgirls line up giving hands to each other in a train station, jumping in front of a train right when it’s arriving, killing themselves and literally splashing (Tarantino style) blood all over the station and people there.

Audition (NSFW) (Gore)

30 07 2009

Audition, a Takashi Miike movie (also author of equally gory Koroshiya Ichi), is among the new school japanese movies which are considered by some, the most disturbing movies around.

The actual story isn’t bad: It’s about a middle aged widower looking for a new wife, which ends up posing a supposed “audition” for a movie with the help of his son, with the true purpose of finding this new wife for him.
The story then evolves when he finds one “perfect” japanese wife, and only after sometime starts finding out bits and pieces of her past, which will reveal her true personality.
The graphical situations portrayed in the movie, including torture, dismemberment, and sexual content makes it too strong for most people.
Summary: If you were shaken by movies like Saw or Hostel, keep your distance from Takashi Miike movies because they make these two look like a ride in the park. 😛

Trevor Rabin & Harry Gregson Williams – Enemy of the State Main Theme

29 07 2009

Another music I don’t really know the real title (if it has one).

From Enemy of the State movie soundtrack, it’s the main theme composed by Trevor Rabin and Harry Gregson Williams.
You know those songs that for some reason are part of your life and will follow you forever?
The ones you always get back to on happy and sad days, like an old friend?
Well, this is one of those for me, and part of a series of posts I’m calling my permanent playlist.

The Book of Eli

29 07 2009

As I just finished playing Fallout 3, I decided to make a post about this upcoming Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman movie called The Book of Eli:

Also happens in a post apocalyptic future, and lots of fans are comparing the movie with Fallout 3… but I suspect that almost every post-apocalyptic movie will have stuff comparable to Fallout 3, since the theme has very distinguishing characteristics, such as: destroyed buildings, a “sole survivor” hero that can save humanity, lots of guns and weapons, etc etc. Like in Madmax, I am Legend, and several other tales.
And I’m very happy with all this because I just love post-apocalyptic stories. Battle Royale and Dragon Head are a couple of very nice mangas I can quote on this, and post-apocalyptic stories are close to my favorite literature genre too: Dystopic futures. Like 1984, Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, etc.
Also, I won’t judge which is best, which is better, because it’s all about personal taste… but I find it difficult for any 2 hour long movie reflect everything Fallout 3 has. Politics, portraits of common people living that era, the moral choices you have to make, prejudice and personalities we have on the game and stuff like that.
Still, having the Man on Fire Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman in a post-apocalyptic movie… what more can I ask for?

Battle Royale Movie (Gore)

28 07 2009

Battle Royale, a popular manga in Brazil, has it’s origins on a novel that also has a movie adaptation:

Having watched the movie and read just a couple of volumes from the manga, I can tell that the movie cuts back on the sexual content, but still has lots of the gore.

Naisu no Mori / Funky Forest: The First Contact (NSFW)

27 07 2009

Years ago, when I used to spend my day on image boards, I remember seeing this extremely weird image quite oftenly in motivational pictures used when some weird news came from Japan.

Motivational - Japan, No further Explanation Needed - Naisu no Mori

Motivational - Japan, No further Explanation Needed - Naisu no Mori

Nowadays, I learned that most of that weirdness spread by western media (including mainstream) is a distorted image from Japan.
Like in yes, Japan has weird stuff, but if we make a selection of weird stuff in western countries chances are we’ll find WAY MORE stuff like this one…
