10 + 1 New Asian Movies Worth Seeing

Full Report with images HERE.

Howl's Moving Castle

"Hayao Miyazaki is arguably the greatest director currently working in feature-length animation."


"Aegis ably demonstrates that it isn't just Hollywood heroes who can kick ass."

Neighbor #13

"Neighbor #13 plays like a cross between Ichi The Killer and Fight Club, with a healthy dose of Kill Bill/Oldboy-style revenge thrown in."

The Myth

"Seeing Jackie Chan in a Hong Kong (read: not Hollywood) movie is reason enough for anyone to see The Myth..."


"Box office numbers in Hong Kong are usually reserved for fluffy commercial films starring a pair of girls who aren't really twins, so the success of Election is more than surprising."

Wait 'Til You're Older / All About Love

"The attraction here: Andy Andy Lau and Andy Lau."

Everlasting Regret

"Everlasting Regret challenges the veteran starlet to actually act, and her performance was subjected to a Hong Kong media microscope unlike any other."

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

"...a brilliant and darkly funny movie about grudges held, redemption sought, and the most important thing of all: good pastry."

April Snow

"Bae Yong Joon is at his most resplendently romantic in April Snow - especially during the famously hot love scene with Son Ye Jin."

Welcome to Dongmakgol

"Welcome to Dongmakgol could be the Korean film people talk about well into 2006."

Vincent Schiavelli

Sad holiday season...

Vincent Schiavelli died of lung cancer Monday at age 57 in Italy. Schiavelli had memorable turns as a mental-ward patient in One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and as a science teacher in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. In 1997, Vanity Fair named him one of America's best character actors. He also wrote three cookbooks.


Smashing Pumpkins

We miss your group Billy...


Hope you all had a great Christmas or Hanukkah and I hope to see you all very soon.

WOW! I have been out of bloggin' for a while. Sorry about that folks (well, the five of you who read this). I've been really swamped at work. I'll try to get in a post or two later this week. Thanks for your patience.

But to hold you over... here's a very interesting NPR story.
