Install is also an enjoyable movie, stars Aya Ueto Embarassed , don't expect anything earth-shattering, but if you want to sit and watch a pleasing coming-of-age drama/comedy for 90 minutes, this is suggested. Nod Aya is really good in this, nothing like the kind of character she played Azumi, both so different, yet she was great in both. Love

Thanks, never heard of it, Kaneshiro is in my top 5 actors, Nod he is just to great, looked it up and read a review, sounds interesting, probably take a while before it gets released on DVD over here. Sad

Hmmm, I've never downloaded a movie or something that big, don't know if this computer could handle it... even the cavemen had faster computers! Crying You did get me into Kaneshiro again, currently watching his J-Drama, Golden Bowl, he's a bowler in it... maybe let me know how hard/easy it is to download a movie, thanks! Smile

Umm there's two parts to it and each one is 700mb. My computer is slow too, so I usually leave my computer on to download at night.

It's also on aznv.tv (i think..) if you have an account on it.

Very tough.... even though action/ horror/ mysteries are my favorite genres, my faves movies are a bit on the sappy drama side Giggle ...so I would say
1- Love Letter Love http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/drama/loveletter/loveletter.html
But followed closely by Neko ni Fuusen
Poppoya- hard to find reviews, this would be #2
Who's Camus Anyway? http://www.isugoi.com/whos-camus-anyway-review/
Stereo Future- http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/drama/stereofuture/stereofuture.html
Koi no Mon- http://www.nipponcinema.com/db/review/otakus_in_love/

That's it for now, I tend to get carried away talking about films, so many more to add! Sad

They sound good, I'll definitely give them a look Nod

Love Letter $6.99 VCD, Poppoya 6.99 VCD / 9.99 DVD on YesAsia - wow, so cheap Boogie Boogie , I'll add them in next time I order something.

You're right, what good prices, get the DVD for Poppoya if possible...ever notice how your favorite movies you find hard to describe or what it is that makes you really like them? Confused Both really have no action, mystery, suspense, but yet they're both so fantastic! Neko ni Fuusen

EDIT: Hard to find reviews for Poppoya, not a real known film, but here is one:

I just finished watching Install - all I can say is thank goodness she stopped that dish from being uncovered Sneeze Aya was great as usual Love

I disagree with the Azumi comment though, I think she played the role pretty well, the directing / role were quite unusual though for that kind of movie/character. That's my biased view anyway Love Love

Oh no, I was just referring to the kind of character she played in the movies and how they were so different, Confused I really though she was great in Azumi, Nod perhaps I just worded it wrong, Sad I've never seen her acting ever bad. Blank stare
