    Default Good Jap-Movies?

    I'm searching for good Japanese movies, mostly action/sci-fi/comedy and I'm having a hard time finding a good one. So eventually it has come down to this, I need everybody's help here because this I'm bored to death.

    I also like Hollywood movies about Japan, for example "The Last Samurai".

    I would really appreciate if anyone out there is willing to help me in my search

    If you count Brother, its directed by Takeshi Kitano. It's a pretty good movie.
    Black Rain is also a good movie I'd recommend.

    Hope those help or are what you are looking for.

    Yeah, I heard something about a movie called Brother, haven't watched it yet though. I will try it out
    Never heard of Black Rain either but surely I will try that one out to

    Thank you very much!


    EDIT: W8 a minute, I've already seen Black Rain

    Most things by Akira Kurosawa. Tokyo Story is worth checking out. As is Air Doll. World's End Girlfriend did the score for Air Doll thus, by default, making it the greatest soundtrack ever. All About Lily Chou-Chou is another great film.
    Do you want anime films? Studio Ghibli do a lot of awesome stuff.
    This is a Sig. It's horribly out of date.

    Seven samurai. It's an absolute Japanese classic. The Americans even remade it into the magnificent seven. If you liked The Last Samurai then you would probably like Twilight Samurai. Umm a Japanese cult classic that comes to mind is Suicide Club. It'll make you think. Those are just a few that come to mind. Enjoy.

    I don't know a lot of Japanese movies. But what I do know are OVAs and Live action movies.

    Try One Liter of Tears special OVA. Death Note live action. Ju-on (the Grudge) and The Ring are some familiar/popular ones.

    1. anything by Akira Kurosawa

    anime movies like The Sky Crawlers, Akira and Ghost in the Shell are good

    A couple of great live-action Japanese movies for me would have to be Ichi & Geisha Assassin ^^
