This movie is about a man. Down and out of luck, he needs money and a mysterious man calls and offers for him the money he needs, by playing a game.

In the game there are many tasks for you to complete. Each task gets you more and more money, and the gentlemen calling is watching where ever you go on security cameras; so he knows if you have completed his task. read more Each task also gets more graphic as you go along.

I love this movie. Great story, great take.

There is an American re-make of this called '13 Sins', Ron Perlman stars in it.
I highly suggest watching the Thai Original first as the story line is much more uncomfortable and the tasks are a lot more daunting.

I watch a lot of horror movies. This is not really scary.

It's a story about a young boy who enters a boys dorm. They sleep in a big room together, eat together and bath together. But there is a swimming pool on the school grounds that they will never fill.
That is where the ghost story comes in.

To be honest I recommended this to someone who cant watch scary movies read more at all and they really liked it.

The story is good, but just have a box of tissues with you, okay?

I watch a lot lot lot lot lot of horror movies and this is possibly the most creepy one I have ever seen.

NEVER WATCH THE AMERICAN ONE. JUST DON'T.
(it will actually have no effect, because the american one is terrible, but it will give the story away)

This movie could have been so good, But some things fell short.

Some background, the director of the first movie passed away before this movie started to film. So his son took over and was the director of this one.

Also the lead role actor Tatsuya Fujiwara was fresh off is Death Note kick, so I guess he felt like he didnt really need to try and actually act anymore because he'd read more made enough money.

If you want to watch this for the glory for the Battle Royal name, go right ahead. But the acting, and the change in direction might throw you off.

The first thing you need to know is Miike Takashi directed this.
It's going to have lots of blood and some disturbing parts.

Over all its a Great Samurai movie from a Different perspective (maybe even more realistic than some genera movies are). You will feel uncomfortable, you will cry, you will feel the passion and the emotions of the men.

Miike is a king of Directing. Just watch it.

Not so long ago I was looking for a Chinese (drama) movie in some website and I came across the movie ''Postmen in the mountains'' I directly fell in love with the poster and decided to watch it as soon as possible, but I was too impatient that I couldn't wait any longer as you can see. And the truth is that I loved this movie, I did not expect much from read more it but it captured my heart since the very first second and actually this is not often that a movie makes me feel that good.

So basically this movie is about a young man who decides to follow his father's footsteps after his retirement :becoming a postman.
Before retiring the father accompanies his son in the rural mountains of Hunan where he delivered mails to the villagers, villagers he knows very well and so he told his son that being a postman is not only a job where you deliver mails but you have to give all your love in it and understand well all these people, because they are the one who'll make him enjoy this job which is actually not an easy one since he has a long way to go before doing the work properly and so his fathher is going with him for his first time to show him the ropes, his father told him this ''as long as you have dreams you live, a life without dreams is not a life fully lived, same goes with this mail route it is tough but you meet nice people , you learn a lot on this route,then you find new meaning in the job. The villagers give your job a meaning, their life gives you a new meaning'' he said it all *0*!
A part from that I loved the father/son bonding here, I was so touched by their interactions. Here we have a son who does not even know anything about his father but on this long journey he will learn more about him than he could have learnt in his childhood and teenager's days , and so many scenes deeply touched me especially one when the son is carrying his father on his back, absolutely one of my favorite scene of the movie. Well I won't say much you have to see it with your own eyes and I'm sure you'll feel the same way as I did !

I'm sincerely glad I was able to watch such an underrated gem, it's the kind of movie which makes me forget about everything around me and allows me to enjoy every part of it without worrying about the rest.

I think these words perfectly describe the movie : Calm, poetic, breathtaking, beautiful and inspiring yep this is for me one of the most inspiring movie I've ever seen. I also have to say that the cinematography here is so stunning I took not less than 40 screenshots as the Hunan province is so beautiful filled with wonderful landscapes, definitely a place I would love to visit and rest for a long moment ;)

The story is good, interesting and enjoyable!
it's fairly significant that the story is a little bit inadequate but frankly to say i really don't care at all!

I watch this because of kim sae ron and it's really worth waiting ! i really love it it's really good as i expected. It will contain my satisfaction OMG ! feel really happy! haha :D

For me the cast is impressive using disabled read more characters it's remind me the movie BLIND spit of it's different story but same genre. That feeling that you want to see the next part.

About the music i don't know? half of the movie i watch it without a single sounds !!! i will definitely re-watch this movie and next time ill watch it in morning with my brother and my mom :)

Generally for those who like this kind of movie why give it a try? i don't know why it's low rating! i think it's more than enough for daily entertaining !

Anyway Thank you GEANINA for the LINK:

When watching the movie I know that it wasnt going to be a funny one. Throughout the movie I cried along with the children and the heart and sole that went into this. Please anyone wanting to watched this be prepared and watch through out the whole of the movie. The pain that some feel even without telling you what's wrong can tell by watching something like this although we all want read more to avoid the subject.

"Poongsan" is the first action movie that I have watched from the veteran "art-house" Director Kim ki Duk, where he has only written script for this movie and produced it. Directed by one of his assistant. It would have been completely different if he himself had directed the movie because of the dark theme, heavy plot, border-tensions handled in the movie.

While I was watching this movie, I felt the movie was read more directed by Kim ki duk. Because of few factors like, the main lead's scope of acting is only through the body language thereby not speaking a word, a kind of silence maintained through out the movie, the music was very mild & used only in some portions of the movie, the realistic characters/relationships/situations adding more weightage to this dark movie.

My other thought is, this script should have been given to some other director and made as a full fledged action movie instead of watching it in Kim ki duk's style type of motion picture portrayal. Overall, I recommend this movie to all who expects a different story/theme.

Absolutely LOVED the movie, was a perfect sequel. I would say it was even better than the manga itself. Takeru satoh as Kenshin was perfect, he was really into his role, I think his acting is improving a lot with each movie and drama. Both the leads has great chemistry. The whole cast was outstanding.

Right from the start Rurouni Kenshin shows its excellent direction and fight choreography, and it doesn't use read more any CG, apart from the blood in the entire movie - now that's what I call a real action movie.

When I first started watching it I thought it was going to be a cheesy retelling version of the manga (like most live-action adaptions of manga's that have been coming out recently) but it wasn't, I would say it portrayed the manga perfectly if not better.

The hard worl put into the direction and acting in this movie really shows, and it all paid of as the movie was a great success.

Simply put, Rurouni Kenshin may be the single best Japanese live-action adaptation I have ever seen.

Ever since I heard about this movie, I have already been so excited about it given that it's a movie with my favorite stars in it who are Ady An and Jiro Wang. They are already great actors in their own right so I actually had no problems with the acting or the cast of this movie. However, this film failed to present what it was trying to show to their audience read more as suggested by the poster, plot, and stills that they used for the movie's promotion.

As I started watching it, I feel like it had so much potential to be a thrilling viewing experience because of all the mystery and tomb-raiding subject. In the end, it just ended up to be a low-cost film which actually had no intention of showing the process of raiding tombs. I'm assuming that they spent all their production money just to cast Ady and Jiro in this film but the production team seemed to have just wasted their actors' potential. All of the promotion posters even showed that they were raiding tombs with their cool-looking uniforms but you'd only get to see that for a maximum of 5 seconds. What a waste.

An overall score of 6.5 is still fairly high but I only left it as such because Ady and Jiro acted so well (as they always do actually). Some parts also actually scared me and left me intrigued but I really wished that the story went to the direction that the audience really wanted and expected to see given that they promoted it as a film full of mystery and secrets on the subject of tomb-raiding.

The story is a simple one - a coming-of-age of these three friends who are all at the same stage of their lives but each take different approaches and paths for their future.

At times the humour and references can't be translated and truly conveyed to a non-Korean audience, and would need an explanation. Other than that, the humour is pretty slapstick and a little bit fratboy-ish at times. Some scenes with read more physical comedy were really funny, others were slightly gross.

I'm guessing Kang Haneul and Kim Woo Bin signed on for this movie before they became really famous and their popularity skyrocketed. There are also a few other actors and actresses in this movie you're bound to recognize.

Overall a pretty light comical watch.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a martial artist film with an amazing storyline trying to depict the lives of those well known for the martial arts movement. The simplest of the story may seem dull but to the contrary, the plot provides the necessary suspense and fight scenes that keep you watching in amazement of the beauty of the arts. The fighting scenes provide flawless moves; the connection of each move despite read more them being on strings.

The concept of the movie is firstly the retrieval of the green destiny sword which then brings us to the Jade Fox; the villain of the movie.

ACTING: 9.5/10 – CHARACTERS: 10/10
Amazing acting abilities from Zhang Ziyi whom at the time of filming was just doing her second main role at the age of 20-21. The fight scene with Yeoh Michelle is so magnificent that I have to ask whether they use stunt doubles; and straight after she fights Chow Yun Fat. This fight provides the mastermind of the director’s (Ang Lee) ability to produce a worthy scene in weak looking trees.

MUSIC: 8.5/10
Such a calming ending song to a saddening conclusion.

LIKED: I loved the sceneries used and do wish to see them for myself in this lifetime (not so much the desert).
DISLIKED: The ending just because of its sadness

CONCLUSION:
You should watch this movie if you enjoy genres such as SUSPENCE – MARTIAL ARTS – AMAZING ACTING – LOVE – SACRIFICE – SWORDSMANSHIP – PATIENCE.
