    DeepDiscount is having a sale on certain Asian film titles.

    Asian Cinema Sale | Free Shipping at DeepDiscount.com

    Nothing super spectacular, but some decent buys. Not going to buy anything myself, but if I hadn't already bought Assault Girls on Blu-Ray, I would have bought it through this sale.

    Speaking of Top 10 lists, here's Midnight Eye's top 10 Japanese films:

    Midnight Eye feature: Midnight Eye's Best (and Worst) Japanese films of 2010

    Essential reading if you're like me and love getting frustrated hearing about great movies you might never get to see...

    Midnight Eye review: Norwegian Wood (Noruwei no Mori, 2010, director: Tran Anh Hung)

    At its most basic level, Murakami's novel is pure melodrama. Translator Jay Rubin comments that those who had first read the author's "cool, fragmented, American-flavored narratives on mysterious sheep and disappearing elephants" were disappointed to discover that Norwegian Wood was "just a love story." Indeed, in a less capable director and screenwriter's hands the result could have been just another over-the-top story of young love and loss. But Tran Anh Hung takes the material and elevates it to something sublime, turning a much-loved but fairly conventional story into a work of art.
    By the way, Jonny Greenwood (of Radiohead) scored this film.

    Midnight Eye review: Tetsuo: The Bullet Man (director: Shinya TSUKAMOTO)

    Technically - and by extension, stylistically - it shows that Tsukamoto is heading in a new direction that could yield promising results. It is also a farewell of sorts, to the cyberpunk Tsukamoto that once was. If the Tsukamoto who emerges from this experience, liberated from that nagging little iron man that's been crawling through his system for the past 24 years (since 1986's The Phantom of Regular Size), is the unchained, unadulterated version of the filmmaker we began to glimpse with A Snake of June and Vital, then "promising" will be a royal understatement for what awaits.
    It's nice to finally read a positive review of this movie. I'm still excited as **** about it.

    Bloody Good Poster For Kim Ji-woon



    From the director of "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" and "A Tale Of Two Sisters". This is one seriously ****ed up movie! Opens March 4th, I believe.

    24Framespersecond.net - WHISPERING CORRIDORS 5: A BLOOD PLEDGE on U.S DVD



    The hugely popular Korean “Whispering Corridors” horror franchise series returned home last year for a great fifth instalment in Whispering Corridors 5: Blood pledge - a tale of teen suicide pacts and vengeful (aren’t they always) spirits - and now its heading for release on a U.S Blu-ray/DVD combo pack via Tokyo Shock, under the re-jigged title ‘A Blood Pledge: Broken Promise.’ All the bloody, schoolgirls in a very dodgy suicide pact..type fun...arrives on sale February 8th.
    I like the Whispering Corridors series a lot. None of the films are perfect, but they're good atmospheric spooky movies. Worth a rent, for sure. Reviews of this one have been pretty positive, as well.

    Oh, and it looks like it's coming as DVD/Blu combo pack. According to Amazon.
