Gundam Musou (Japan Version)1 people found this review helpful
April 11, 2007 Awesome game!
This gotta be one of the best robot/mecha video games I have ever played.
Granted... at times, it just feels like one is just "smashing" & pressing away buttons, but just keep on progressing thru the game, as the missions and the bosses become tougher and you, as the player, have to figure out strategies on how to defeat them. I have this game, but it's the Asia version, which is "no region protection" (I live in the USA & have a regular playtation 3 with no modifications). I don't know if the Japan version can be played on an USA playstation 3 system.
If you can get your hands on this game, do so!
Casshern (2004) (VCD) (Hong Kong Version)2 people found this review helpful
July 13, 2006 What HAPPENED??!
This film got a great look, feel and visuals going for it. But it's a sci-fi, based anime theme movie, so, what happened to the action? There's barely any of it. The best action sequence occurs around the mid point of the movie and it only last about 3 mins. Trully dissappointing. This could have been a classic if the director didn't spend sooooo much time with his philosophical views about men, war, etc., etc., etc. It was like watching a political press conference, with the politicians just going around in circles, never getting to the point or stating anything of any significance!
Naked Weapon (Hong Kong Version)December 7, 2005 Geared towards the MALE audience...
Pretty good martial/action movie. It got style, energy and a direct approach going for it. This movie was made for the male audience, so don't bother convincing your female friends to see or like it. It's well produced, with pretty women and the fighting is pretty good (some wire-fu, but not to the point of being over-kill). Be forewarn, as there's some pretty strong (and I do mean STRONG) sexual content. Overall, it's alot better than what I expected it to be.
Seven Swords (2005) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)1 people found this review helpful
December 6, 2005 Okay, but should have been better.
The entire production value of this movie is REALLY GOOD! What's dissapointing is that the director "meanders" on side stories or mini plots which carry no consequenses for the rest of the movie (does the audience have to watch over three minutes of a "lonely" horse, trying to find it's way back to it's village?). Also, there's not enough martial arts for the "junkies". And when it does get to it, most of the action is sooooo heavily edited or at times filmed too close to the combatants. How dissapointing! Thus, the reasoning for only "6" stars. It's supposed to be a martial arts movie, and Tsui Hark seems to have forgotten the basic rules (straight, well written/interesting plot; well choreograph (and shot) martial arts sequences and better rhythm/pace throught out the entire movie).
Once Upon A Time In China I, II, III (DVD) (Digitally Remastered) (Hong Kong Version)
Once Upon A Time In China I, II, III (DVD) (Digitally Remastered) (Hong Kong Version) DVD Region All(7)Our Price: US$25.49December 5, 2005 Jet Li at his best...
This trilogy looks nicely packaged and put together. Unfortunatelly, I found some issues with the dvd quality transfer, as I guess it's expected for films from the early 90's. DVD video quality transfer is overall okay, with the most flaws coming from part I (scratches, burns, etc). The same can be said about the sound/audio from part I, as it's the weakest in terms of effects and transfer (everything sounded FLAT).
Part I has the most fights, but at times, the story is long and drags a little here and there.
Part II is the best of the three, in terms of how it's all put together to be cohesive in story and fights.
Part III is my least favorite one, probably because of the "grand" finale dragon dance. It's soooooooooo long (besides, there are other dragon dances earlier in the movie, thus, I think, it's DRAGON DANCE OVER-KILL!... I've never been a fan of dragon dances that are "mish-mashed" into fights). Story is VERY WEAK too! Also, the Cantonese voice actor for Jet Li is not the same one from part I & II. Found the "new" voice to be all wrong in tone (did not sound "noble" enough).
For action/martial arts fans, this set is nice to have, direct from a HK or China distributor.
New Police Story (DTS Version)December 5, 2005 Well done Jackie!
This movie is not your usual Jackie Chan "laugh-athon". It has a more serious tone which lends itself, in my opinion, a more credible, realistic story line. I didn't give it "10" stars because I would have liked: a.) a little bit more fights; b.) needed more pretty women (no problems with Charlie Young and Coco Chiang, but Charlene Choi? blah!... the casting director should've picked the other "Twin" Gillina Chung!). Still, an excellent martial art/action flick!
Romance of Their Own (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)December 5, 2005 Okay, but nothing special...
Don't understand why so many other customers/reviewers gave this such a high grade. There are some cute and funny moments (needed more, though), but not enough to get so many high recommendations. The plot/story is so-so. It got some decent fight scenes and the 3 lead actors are good in their roles. Good to see it once, but wouldn't bother to do multiple viewings of this movie.
Spy Girl (Hong Kong Version)December 3, 2005 Mmm... what to write?
Was debating on whether to give this movie such a high mark. The overall quality of the movie is good, but there are no real surprises, as it's a pretty much straight forward kind of plot/story, with a bit of "preposterous" events and situations along the way, but hey, it's a romantic comedy, right? With that in mind, I guess the high marks go to the 2 leading girls in the flick (Spy Girl and the manager girl... they're just too pretty for me to give a low mark!). Funny factor, average. Cute moments, above average. Overall story/plot, barely average.
My Sassy Girl (2001) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)December 3, 2005 You gotta have your own dvd of this movie...
I've already highly recommended the purchase of this movie as the director's cut version, but since it's out of print (HK director's cut edition), then go and get this version (you'll get a deleted scenes section). This version is excellent as is. It's funny, touching and told/pieced together very well.
ARAHANNovember 19, 2005 A bit above average stuff!
The film has some nice action/martial arts sequences (when it does finally gets to it... WAY PAST THE MID-POINT OF THE MOVIE!). My main complaints are probably the use of WAY TOO MUCH "wire-fu" in the last couple of fights and it takes TOO LONG to get the action going. Also, the plot feels a bit convoluted. What kept me awake was looking forward to glimpses of the lead actress (Yoon So-Yi... she's one pretty lady!).
Ong Bak AKA: Muay Thai Warrior (Hong Kong Version)November 19, 2005 Excellent action movie...
The action/martial arts sequences are trully awesome. This is an action/martial arts movie, so don't bother to look for an intricate plot/story or acting. Just sit back and be mesmerized by Tony Jaa!
Love, So Divine (DVD) (DTS) (Hong Kong Version)November 19, 2005 Very dissappointing...
I don't wanna "slam" this film, but it lacks ALOT of things. It's barely funny, poorly paced and written. The only thing this movie got going for it are the two leads/main characters. Save your money. If you need to watch it (Ha Ji Won IS A BABE!... it's probably the reason why I took a chance on this flick), borrow or rent it.

November 11, 2005 Highly RECOMMENDED!
This movie is so well put together and written. Kim Ha Neul acting MAKES this an very funny, touching and highly enjoyable film. The supporting cast is also pretty good. This (along with "My Sassy Girl") is one of my favorite Korean romantic comedy. Enough said... buy this flick!
Day & Night (2CD Special Edition)August 29, 2005 This is a very good cd!
Even though there's alot of English songs & some are songs that Leon Lai Ming have previously released and sang, this is still a VERY GOOD album because you can hear how talented Janice is (voice, singing, the whole deal).
My Sassy Girl(Director's Cut)(HK Version)August 29, 2005 Believe the hype!
I saw the original HK theatrical version a while back and REALLY liked & loved this movie. Thus, bought the director's cut, just to watch what was taken out. The HK theatrical version is excellent as is. The added segments are of not much importance to the overall movie, but it was nice getting additional minutes & seeing the more scenes/moments of these two hilarious characters (the extra features section are good too!).
To end, just three words... BUY THIS DVD.
Please Teach Me English (US Version)2 people found this review helpful
August 29, 2005 Above average Korean romantic comedy
I have to say after watching this movie, I was a bit dissappointed. It's just not funny enough... maybe you can say it's the script itself that needed more "funny" lines or moments, which it lacks. All the main characters/leads are VERY GOOD portraying their roles (which saves the movie for me), but again, I have to say that the script is just so-so. Also, I did not like the fact that I could not see this dvd movie in Korean with English subtitles (I guess Tai Seng did not want to spend the "extra" effort on this). So, it's either watch it in Cantonese or Mandarin with english subtitles OR Korean with chinese subtitles. If you're a "purist" (watching a movie in it's original language with english subtitles), then buy the Region 3 dvd and have a region free dvd player.
My Tutor Friend (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)August 29, 2005 It has it's moments... worth to watch and buy...
Well, pretty much the title of this review says it all.
I watched the movie after receiving it in the mail. I expected it to be much funnier, but it's still very good (I think my problem was that I expected it to match the quality of "My Sassy Girl", which, of course, it's just not possible... This movie is ALOT better than "Please Teach Me English"... I guess you can say I just compare too much, huh?).
Anyways, bottom line, if you're into romantic comedies with a bit of everything on it (action, melodrama and "cute" factor), then watch this movie and enjoy it.
