    March 28, 2007 I couldn't dig this film Customer Review Rated Bad 3 - 3 out of 10
    Maybe it was just the REALLY bad English subtitles (probably not), but this film did not flow very well. Every time the plot took a new direction, I was puzzled about what was going on and had to guess which omitted details could possibly connect the current scene to the previous one. Otherwise, the film made no sense.

    The description off of the box is also completely wrong. Here's what the film is REALLY about (if I correctly filled on the plot holes): The police chief's daughter and a crime boss's son meet at a video game competition, once when they were little kids, then several years later after they've grown up. When they meet as adults, they fall in love and get engaged. The crime boss is arrested however, when the two fathers meet and recognize each other.

    The crime boss's son, who had been criticized for not participating in crime, announces to his family a scheme to steal 50 million ... but we see him next being hired to develop a computer game for 50 million. To complicate matters, the cop's daughter quits her police job and gets hired by the same software company, and the two have to share the same office.

    As they work on their "games," the crime boss's son and the cop's daughter continually sabotage each other with the help of their crook and cop friends. They eventually settle on a final competition whereby the crooks will try to break into some gangster's art vault, while the cops try to stop them with traps and security devices. (And what does this have to do with developing a video game?)

    The real trouble comes afterwards when the crime boss's son's two friends decide to go back to the gangster's place and steal his antique noodle bowl. This ganger's weapon of choice is a golden shovel, and if his own employees cross him he'll bury them alive (digs the hole himself, too).

    The film continues to be confusing all the way to the end. It was kind of funny at time, but it's really hard to laugh when you're busy trying to figure out what the heck's going on!

    March 11, 2007 "Today's gaijin forcast..." Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This parody of "Sinking of Japan" is hilariously anti-foreigner, complete with a weather-forcast-like report warning Japanese citizens to lock their doors, never go outside alone, and avoid foreigner-dense areas.

    There's something amusing about seeing several Westerners speaking slurred yet fluent Japanese in a bar, while others struggle to spit out a complete sentance of crappy Japanese. (Strangely enough, several of the "Americans" spoke better Japanese than English; Elizabeth's English was so horrible that even I couldn't understand her without the subtitles.)

    June 22, 2006 Pipi Band / Pipi-Long Stocking Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    This band put out some really cool tunes, one of which was even covered by Yuki Xu, but when they were "Pipi Band" (1995-1996) the lead singer's bad singing hurt their sound quality. There are a few songs where she actually sounds really good, so she obviously could have done better on the rest. When they changed their name to "Pipi-Long Stocking" (1997), it sounds like they replaced their lead singer, but it looks like it was a little late to save their career since they didn't put out more albums. Despite its flaws, this compilation album still manages to be entertaining.

    October 2, 2005 I liked it Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This and "Oh! Happy Day!" are the only performances of Jang Na Ra I've ever seen, but when she's not being obnoxious, she's actually pretty cute.

    The ending bothered me, though, because after what seemed to be the conclusion of the story, they pulled a "One Year Later" bit which seemed to disolve what should have been the concrete end. I guess that silly "One Year Later" bit would have been okay if they had continued the series indefinately like an Archie comic book (about a boy who, after 50 years, still hasn't chosen between Betty and Veronica). But they didn't, so they could have done without it.

    September 10, 2005 Don't let the title scare you Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This is a claymation made for children. It uses the "lifetime" of a doggy poo to illustrate the cycle of life. And mind you, it's all done in good taste. (The reaction I got from my mother was priceless when I told her that I was watching "doggy poo," but then she and my sister watched it, too, and they loved it!)

    You can watch in Korean or English, but if you can't read Korean, you might have a bugger of a time navigating your way through the menus to the English version.

    August 25, 2005 Great music Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    The music on this OST sounds a lot like the Dae Jang Geum OST, which is probably why I like it so much. It's lots of instrumental, with some singing. A few of the tracks begin with a short narration or monologue.

    Now, when does the KBS TV series come out on DVD with English subtitles?

    August 23, 2005 Slap that funky man Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    The music is GREAT, and Kim Hyun Jung's singing is FANTASTIC, but some of the songs have this ANNOYING rapper who sounds like he's constipated. I was REALLY LOOKING FORWARD to hearing Hyun Jung's rendition of "Funky Town," and SHE DELIVERED, but Constipation-Man RUINED the song!!! This is not a "Kim Hyun Jung" album; it's a "Kim Hyun Jung and Constipation-Man" album. Okay, thankfully he's not in all the songs, so he didn't ruin the entire album, but LET THE TALENTED SINGER SING HER SONGS AND KEEP THE CONSTIPATED RAPPERS OFF OF NON-RAP ALBUMS!!!! (And get that man some Exlax!) I think the publishers owe us a non-rap version of this song on her next album.

    August 22, 2005 Inconsistant Quality Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    These are all great films, but the quality of the DVDs is inconsistant. In most cases, the English subtitles are excellent, but half of the movies use Cantonese names in the subtitles, which is confusing since they don't match the Japanese names you hear. Then some DVDs are in widescreen, while others are not. (It's possible some could have been ORIGINALLY FILMED in the "fullscreen" aspect, in which case I wouldn't be bothered, but I am somehow doubtful of that.) And one movie, despite being in widescreen, looked pixely, as if a smaller image, oh say, from perhaps a 320x240 resolution VCD, had been enlarged to DVD resolution. In any case these DVDs are not remastered, but somehow I still enjoyed them. (I think I surprised quite a few people by being caught watching old black & white films.) Watch out for your package when it arrives in the mail; these DVDs come packed in a big 8-1/2 x 12 x 4-1/4 inch box. (It's kind of a cool box, with a magnetic flap, but I'd still rather have gotten the movies simply shrink wrapped together, so that I wouldn't have this big space-waster).

    August 22, 2005 I hate animated DVD menus! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Azumi is a cool samurai flick! Lots of swords & slicing. Well worth watching, but not recommended for the squeemish. Based on a Japanese manga, it made a good transition to live-action. (I haven't seen a lot of actual manga-to-films, but I have seen a lot of films that felt like manga-wannabes, which usually turned out stupid.)

    If, like me, watching this Korean edition DVD will be your first time to ever see the film, you'll want to somehow avoid watching the unskippable pre-main-menu-video, which is a spoiler showing the climatic ending of the film!

    Good English subtitles, bytheway...

    ...and if the DVD publishers are reading this: Because the Korean release of the sequal, "Azumi 2," DIDN'T include ENGLISH SUBTITLES, I didn't buy it! If it had included English subtitles, I would have pre-ordered it! That simple omition cost y'all a large market share.

  • August 17, 2005 Gun baka Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
    I just watched the ADV Films U.S. release, which they called "Gun Crazy: A Woman from Nowhere." It's like those low-budget TV action series: Lots of guns & aimless shooting, coupled with lots of bad acting and silly special effects. They tried to make a serious action film, but its stupidness kept me laughing all the way. The best part was when Saki pulled out her concealed rocket launcher...

    March 10, 2005 Excellent Film Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This is a very moving film. After hearing the sweet tale of how the parents fell in love, you come to understand and appreciate what's so important about "the road home." Highly recommended.

    As for technical details: It's in widescreen, and the English subtitles are very good.

    December 3, 2004 Hali Bote shi hen hao! ke shi... Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
    It was fun watching Harry Potter in Chinese, but throughout the whole movie, I kept having the nagging feeling that something was missing...and then I'd remember that the movie is in FULLSCREEN, so half the picture IS missing! Two disks, and they couldn't use one of the sides for the FULLSCREEN version? How utterly disappointing (which is why this product doesn't score a 10).

    November 16, 2004 Yay! Korean Parody! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This is the funniest Korean movie I've ever seen! The film makers really did their homework when they made this, Korea's first (and so far only?) parody.

    It's got lots of laughs on it's own, but here's some recommended prerequisite viewing to help you fully appreciate many of the jokes: Shiri, Attack the Gas Station, Last Present / The Gift, My Sassy Girl / My Yupki Girl, JSA / Joint Security Area, The Ring, The Foul King, Beat, Peppermint Candy, Green Fish, Nowhere To Hide, Bichunmoo, Two Cops, A Horror in Highschool, and many more.

    One of the special features is a scene comparison with actual clips from some of the original films.

    If you like Korean cinema, you'll love "Fun Movie"!

  • October 13, 2004 T2: Director's Cut Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Great action flick! And I think this one is better than the U.S. edition just because it doesn't have that stupid metal case (upon which I almost cut my finger when I picked it up at a store).

    One disappointment: I bought the Japanese version specifically so that I could watch T2 in Japanese, but instead of dubbing the film in Japanese, they added a SECOND COMMENTARY track with a Japanese dub mixed in over the American commentators (mixed in over the film dialog). I think subtitles-only would have worked best for that. Then there would have been room for a Japanese dialog track.

    At very least, it's got English *DTS*!

    October 13, 2004 Honorable Work of Nurse - The Movie Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    This is a silly movie with plenty of laughs. Kind of reminds me of watching those American nurse/hostpital sitcoms from the '90s. Despite a dramatic twist at the end, the acting shouldn't to be taken too seriously. It's a comedy, after all.

    Because of the comedic nature of the film, the dialog is spoken with much empahsis and is therefore easier to understand than a typical Japanese action flick, which is beneficial for anyone like me who is studying Japanese. (And the English subtitles are very good, with only one "crumsy" occurance of Enrish.)

    May 7, 2004 Eh, no, not this time Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I was about to pre-order this product, when I realized: I already did! Back in November 2003, I bought the "Limited Edition." This "Special Edition" comes with the EXACT same audio CD.

    We only need *ONE* version of each album.

    The music is GREAT, and the price is nice (on sale for $15 at the time of this writing), but I'm not going to fork out more money for an album I already have, just to get a bonus extra.

    Make the music video DVD available sepparately--for a low price--and I'll buy that too. (Yeah, logically, I could just look at this as a $15 DVD, but I'd still have an extra disk wasting valuable shelf space. It's the principle that counts!)
