Weekend Movie Review: Japan Comedies edition

The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji and The Mole Song: Hong Kong Crazy Uproar Song

Undercover Reiji Trailer
Hong Kong Trailer

Super naive cop goes undercover into the Yakuza, Hilarity Ensues.

Cons: There are comedy sex innuendos/scenes in this. If they make you uncomfortable this is not recommended.

Pros: I found myself laughing throughout the entirety of this movie and even watched the sequel raw  (it should be subbed by now).

Lupin III

Trailer Here

Greatest Thief in the world and he knows it.

Cons: This movie has drag points that should have been cut or condensed.  The run-time is just over 2 hours.

Pros: Over the top totally impossible action scenes that are -and I quote a friend "The stupidest most amazing thing I have ever seen!"

GintamaGintama 2: Rules Are Meant To Be Broken, Gintama 2: Yonimo Kimyo na Gintama-chan and Gintama: Mitsuba hen.

Trailer: Here 2: Here  2: Here Mitsuba-hen: Here

How in the hell do I describe the Gintama universe in a few sentences? Aliens invaded the Edo period long ago and... No that's not important. The daily life of a detective... Too boring. JUST watch it... You lol even if you think its dumb.

The only con is I still haven't watched the anime...

Because it is October I will add these 2, even though I am sure this will not be published in October :)

No GIF's for this section cause there were pretty graphic.

Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl

 Trailer: here

Cons: There are politically sensitive subjects in this movie.  It is from 2009 but may offend some people. Watch the trailer before watching the movie.

Pros: This is a satire on society and every horror movie there ever was.  Especially the 2 monsters in the title.  Stupid, gross, over top yet hilarious if you are into horror films at all.

Too Young To Die!  

Trailer: Here

So what if hell was like the cover of a 1980's Heavy Metal album? With a chance to be reincarnated to be with the girl you love?  One catch you may not come back as a human. That's this movie.

Super cheesy yet somehow compelling and refreshing if you watch a lot of whitewashed TV shows.

These are my weekend movie recommendations.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did and may they leave a smile on your face :)
