I didn't like Save the Green Planet at all. Watching crazies and torture aren't my thing.
However, a Korean natural disaster movie like 'Haeundae' does peak my interest. Anyone seen it?
It's supposed to be a good popcorn movie, but I don't want to really drop $36 on a blind buy and feel like I wasted money.
Too bad I can't rent it via Netflix since they only like to tease people with their queue possibility. Sure you can add them, but don't ever expect it to be available.
The Japanese movie 'The Magic Hour' is on my want to watch list too. Don't really know why though.
I liked Save the Green Planet. It is one of those strange movies with a messed up ending. Definitely, Not for everyone.
Haeudae is most definitely a Micheal Bay type Armageddon wanna be. Sure it emphasizes effects over everything else. But it wasn't as bad as something like 2010. It is a good mindless movie. Just not worth $36 on DVD. For that price it should be bluray and even then it still wouldn't be worth it.
In Korea it was a big deal since it starred some well known movie stars and it was their first major effects disaster movie. The movie was copied in Thailand.
dont forget to see city of violence and art of fighting. also this other movie with a korean rapper couple years back. straight up Ryu street fighter training. forgot the title but it was pretty good. Yang dong gun was his name? cant remember.
sorry to hear about your ps3, rakshas.
My friends didn't like Art of Fighting. Although I liked it and thought it was amusing.
^ You talking about Fighter in the Wind ?
Also, to the person asking about Haeundae, I personally thought it was an entertaining movie.. effects were alright, and the acting was good. It might be different for you though, very mixed reviews everywhere.
Fighter in the Wind (Bah Raham Eh Fight Tuh) stars Yang Dong Geun as Choi Bae Dahl/Mas Oyama. Mas Oyama was a real life martial artist who some claim is indeed the inspiration for Ryu from Street Fighter. He was a legendary fighter in Japan who traveled from place to place challenging the best fighters in the area and destroying them. He never lost a fight. Also, he did fight bull and cracked their skulls with a single hit.
Some odd facts. Bi/Rain from Ninja Assassin was originally going to star in Fighter in the Wind. Mas Oyama was Sonny Ichiba's teacher. Sonny Ichiba starred in a movie based on Mas Oyama's life called Cracked Bull Fighter. Ir has him fighting bulls for practice.
Mas Oyama is Korean. The movie glosses over a lot of facts as usual. It makes him seem like a righteous person but even he admitted that he wasn't a very nice guy. Another famous Japanese person. Rikidozan (Yukdosan) a famous wrestler (wrassler) that popularized wrestling in Japan was also Korean. He was played in the movie by Sol Kyung Gu who stars in Haeundae.
