    Takashi Miike's

    Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai - story of a mysterious samurai who arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own, with an ending no one could see coming

    13 Assassins : is centered around a group of elite samurai who are secretly enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord to prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war torn future.

    Death of a Samurai is more subtle than 13 Assassins. Don't expect the same bodycount although it is pretty graphic when the slaughtering begins. At the same time Death of a Samurai emphasizes character development over action which is a good thing. Plus it has an interesting plot twist ending.

    Overall worth watching.

    Heard M Wahlberg interviewed saying he's trying to get a re-make together of Headhunters. One fantastic film.

    @ mr booth: sincerely, what did you take from w Allen's latest?
    Some scene's were plain embarrassing (&I'm a big fan)

    A very bad idea. I doubt an A-list star would do the toiler paper roll scene.

    the rather butch matt damon willingly did the noel cowardy effete scene in The Talented Mr Ripley. But the shit-submerged scene might be a scene too far for the dear mr wahlburg.

    Edit: I watched the toilet roll scene on youtube - that's some strong sense of self preservation !

    Much, much better. I'd forgotten watching the original version, and had the strangest sense of deja vu while watching the Chris Rock version, until I suddenly had an AH HA! moment.

    I hate when movies are mentioned here and look cool then they're not in English. In before condescending remarks, I just don't like spending an entire movie reading as I feel it is disengaging. Ringu wasn't remotely scary because I had to read dialogue. :embar:
