The Maid - Is This Movie As Good As You've Heard? (REVIEW)

When multiple people contact me and say "Have you seen The Maid yet? You'll love it" - then I need to pay attention to that statement.

Good thing is those people knew me very well. I watched it, and I loved it. What an incredible final third! It reminds me so much of the Indonesian movie Forbidden Door.

But don't take my written word for it - watch this movie review I made instead!

Sugar Street Studio - Is This A Return of the Hong Kong Comedy Horror? (REVIEW)

This movie was a surprise, I wasn't expecting this - and when I did watch it I wasn't expecting it to be so damn enjoyable.

There is a lot of love behind the production of this movie, and it could go down in history as one of, if not the last, Hong Kong horror film due to all the silly co-production rules and new laws in Hong Kong.

A throwback to the classic Shaw Brothers et al style of films, there is some camp and schlock, but its perfect! I hope you enjoy watching my review as much as I enjoyed watching this film.

6 Reasons Why Chinese Horror Movies Suck

I know what you're thinking: "there's only 6?!?"

Well I can assure you there are more, but these are the 6 most common reasons.

Limbo - Is This The Best Asian Movie Of 2021 So Far? - REVIEW

WOW! I could just make the review that word and you get the idea of my thoughts. It's an incredible, gritty, tough to watch movie from the director of SPL2 and The Monkey King trilogy.

Starring Gordon Lam, who finally gets an opportunity to lead an exciting movie, and Cya Liu (Yase) who puts in the performance of her career, this is what Category 3 movies from Hong Kong are all about.

Sublime cinematography mixed in with slick CGI, excellent editing and a compelling story combine to create one of the best movies of 2021.

Enjoy my review:

Scissor Dick! The Most Outrageous Japanese Movie Ever! (REVIEW)

The original video was far too hot for upload onto YouTube - which makes no sense because I have seen videos, and made my videos myself, with much worse (and stronger) coarse language.

But hey, thems the rules. Private platform and all.

My good friend Naoyuki Tomomatsu (OK, I don't know him, but one day I will) has returned to make more outrageous Japanese comedy horror movies. Think of Edward Scissorhands, but the scissors are down there. You know where. 

Enjoy

Lust Of The Dead - Snuggle Zombies Coming for Japanese Women! - REVIEW

One of the most offensive and ridiculous Japanese zombie comedy horror series - and I am going to review all 5 films in the series.

Here is my review of part 1 - you need to watch this to believe it!!

Bootleg DVDs - What Titles Are In My Collection?

Around the turn of the century when DVD was insanely popular, bootleg and pirated discs started emerging from Asia and Russia.

While most people probably associate pirated DVDs with movies that have been recorded in a cinema with a video camera, the pirates in China were actually printing up decent quality discs - some of which I bought!

In this video I will give you a tour of some of the bootleg DVDs in my collection - specifically the Asian titles. And I'll also give you a quick view of the quality of what some of these discs are like, including some of the dodgy looking menus. Enjoy

Deadset, you're going to need a strong stomach for this one.

Should You Watch: Who In The Pool?

Come Take A Swim With These Ladies!

I always thought day spa resorts were dangerous. This movie proves it! Also, never hold an engagement party at one.

Oh, and did I tell you this was a Chinese horror movie, from Filmoon? Hahaha

Invitation Only - This Is A Party You DON'T Want Your Name On The Guest List - REVIEW

Rich killing the poor. It's always the same. 

But this time we've got Maria Ozawa! But still, I think this is one party I'd be happy to miss, unless it was just me, Maria and Asami. Hmmm

So how is it? Is it as good as it looks? Join me as I check it out!

Should You Watch: Abyssal Spider?

Imagine, cruising in the ocean, sweeping up innocent fish living their lives so you can sell them for food, only to catch a MASSIVE F**KING SPIDER who then goes on to kill all the bad people on your boat?

Imagine that! I'm fine, I don't care about it, but it might be exciting for you!

Tokyo Species - Maria Ozawa As A Seductive Alien Schoolgirl Killer! - REVIEW

Maria! Maria! Where are you, Maria?

Well you're in Tokyo, and in this strange Japanese version of the US film Species, you've been taken over by an alien, but still in a school dress.

Erotibot - Asami, Maria Ozawa and a Steamy Butler Robot All In One! - REVIEW

Three Japanese AV actresses (Asami, Maria Ozawa and Mahiro Aine) get together for this hilarious sci-fi comedy about android butlers who service the needs of a rich, young and pretty 18 year old heiress.

Emphasis on "service the needs". 

Fun Fact: from the same guy who did the Lust of the Dead series and Frankenstein Girl VS Vampire Girl!

Dynasty Warriors - Best Asian Game to Movie adaption ever? - REVIEW

When Uncle Louis (Mr Cool) makes a new movie, I watch. And pay attention, studying his moves, he demeanor, his presence. 

Except this movie where he dresses up as a silly warrior from ancient times.

But, this is damn good movie. Just like the game, only in movie form. And nothing like the game. But damn good!

Also, fuck Netflix for denying the world a cinematic release of this film.

Home Sweet Home - Home Alone with Aaron Kwok and Zifeng Zhang - REVIEW

Under any circumstance, if you told me I could spend time home alone with Zifeng Zhang, I'd jump at it.

But this house she lives in is creepy, and so is her family.

And this is an average film that isn't as cool as it thinks it is.

Must Watch Asian Horror Movies: The Forbidden Door (Indonesia 2009)

It only took me 12 years to watch one of the most exciting, creepy and disturbing Indonesian horror flicks.

And this was worth the wait. Stick with this movie until the very end. Satisfaction is guaranteed!

Then watch my review on why it was awesome.

Homunculus - A Movie As Confusing As Its Bloody Title - REVIEW

I won't lie... I knew nothing about this movie. And after watching it, I still know nothing about this movie.

Why is Netflix buying these stupid movies? Surely there are better Japanese movies they can fund and release, right?

Wednesday, 21 April 2021

Slate - Girls Kicking Ass in a Fantasy World - REVIEW

Yeah! Now this is more like it.

This movie is a lot of fun. Just a pure ass-kicking action movie about a up and coming stuntwoman who thinks she deserves the lead role in a film, and then gets thrust into a situation to test her skills.

Check out my review here

Should You Watch: Giant Crocodile? Could This Be The Best Croc Monster Movie? (China 2020)

Aren't crocodiles already big enough? Apparently not, so now not only are they GIANT but they are also INVISIBLE!

Holy. Balls.

China is on a roll with these monster flicks. Some good, some bad. How's this one...?

Worst Modern Asian Horror Movies: Hospital (Taiwan 2021)

Must Watch Asian Horror: Siam Square (Thailand)

Another hidden gem of a horror movie - this is a teen horror movie from Thailand that's actually really good!

And it has the cute Ploy Sornarin in it. And she's actually good in this too!

Enjoy this review and then go and enjoy the film. Or even the other way around.

The Soul - Taiwanese sci-fi thriller on Netflix!

So I got tricked, I ended up watching the Mainland Chinese version rather than the proper Netflix one. This means I got a different (shit) ending and the nude scene was cut out.

Watch the Netflix version instead. My review below is based on the Mainland China version.

Also warning: SPOILERS in the video

Must Watch Asian Horror: Gonjiam Haunted Asylum (Korea)

I'm sick of looking at bad movies, so let's look at some good ones.

Now, I am not sure about you, but I am not a fan of found footage movies, so the fact I liked this was a massive surprise.

But why did I like it? Well, you'll have to watch the video to find out...

Gothic and Lolita Psycho - Just That Title Alone Will Get Me De-monetised!

A girl in a gothic lolita costume kicking 5 shades of ass against the deadly assassins who killed her mum - does that sound like your kind of movie? It very well could be - this is a stylish new wave Japanese action movie from 2010, and it is pretty awesome.

The best thing is this movie does not take itself seriously, which I feel is important for cinema. This is a Wong Kar Wai free zone by the way...

Insane Japanese Movies With "Of The Dead" In The Title REDUX - Now With More Titles!

And wait until the end for the cutest title of the lot!
