Rurouni Kenshin 2 - Trailer


Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh) was once a legendary swordsman throughout the civil war that swept across Japan through the 19th Century. After making a name for himself as 'Battosai the Killer', Himura has settled down and taken on the life of a lone wanderer who serves whoever needs his help, although he never kills anymore. But when his successor, Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), is found to have survived being burnt alive, he begins a bloodthirsty attack on the Japanese government. Himura is called back into service to save Japan, but he must ensure he never kills anyone ever again. But can he fulfil that promise?

Rurouni Kenshin Trailer


Kenshin Himura was once a feared assassin known as Battosai the Killer. But, still only young, he has grown tired of taking lives and hangs up his sword in favour of peace, vowing to protect people as a wanderer and not a murderer. He winds up finding a home at a rundown martial arts school led by the feisty but lovable Kaoru Kamiya, who attacks him on his arrival on discovering who he once was. She soon begins to realise that being a killer is not his true self and grows close to Kenshin, helping him find peace and encouraging him to live the rest of his life without killing. However, this becomes more challenging than expected when another ruthless killer named Kanryuu Takeda leaves a trail of bodies behind him in his search for Kenshin, and will stop at nothing to force Kenshin to break his vow.

Silk Review

No matter how many Asian ghost stories I watch -- and I've watched a lot -- I can never get a handle on what it is exactly that Asian ghosts want. Some are sad, some are lonely, some have unfinished business, some are stuck between worlds, and some want bloody revenge.

While the Taiwanese thriller Silk doesn't come close to providing a definitive answer about ghosts' motivations, it does take the question very seriously and even suggests that ghosts have a kind of enviable existence, in part because "they don't have to look for parking spaces anymore."

Another Heaven Review


Weak
There are two kinds of Japanese thrillers: Those that don't translate very well to the Western world, and those that don't translate at all.

Another Heaven (from one of the producers of Ringu) is pretty squarely in the latter group, though that doesn't make it as complete a waste of time as it ought to be. It starts with promise: A group of cops investigate a murder scene: The victim is dead on the floor, his head sliced open and his brain cooking in a pot of stew on the stove. What follows gets confusing, and fast, as it turns out a bunch of brainless folks are on the loose, and they're all killing people before they die themselves.
