  • Cold Fish (2010)

    Gave this a watch last night and thought it was great... A little bit long but really entertaining, with some cool gore, in parts...

    The acting is awesome. In particular, the film's main character played by Mitsuru Fukikoshi. He really does portray a tragic figure.

    The film does eventually build up to a crazy finale.

            It is great. If you like Sono it's a sure hit.

            Love Exposure > Cold Fish > Noriko > Suicide Club > Strange Circus > Exte

            All of them are good though. Hope to see more of his movies in the future.

              It's a bit fucked up but not as disturbing as some other Asian horror films... Mostly, I would say it's another cool contribution to Japanese cinema.

              Definitely worth watching.

                  I do agree that Exte is his worst (though, still really fun), but I think Strange Circus was his best film, Noriko second, and a tie between Love Exposure with Suicide Club for third. He hasn't made a bad film, though. This is coming out fairly soon on DVD, so I can't wait to see this.

                    Well it's almost impossible to pick a favorite anyway : )

                    His next movie is already on it's way to UK cinemas. It's supposed to be another disturbing drama, also with the beatiful Megumi (Taeko in Cold Fish), Guilty of Romance is the title.

                      Just finished watching this for the first time. Excellent, very impressed, really enjoyed it. There are some cool gore scenes, and some really crazy black humor mixed through out. Also, this film is really violent on several different levels. It's not extreme or excessive for the sake of being just that. Although, I wouldn't watch it with your g/f if she's not used to this type of violence. The film is paced really well so you don't get bored. It's 2 1/2 hrs, and, it really didn't drag for me. Good stuff !

                      POUR SOME SOY-SAUCE ON IT !!!

                          Decent flick though a bit of a letdown given all the hype it got. The movie felt way too long and dragged in many parts. The gore was next to non-existent however the ending kinda paid off for what was really a mediocre movie for the most part.
                          I'd give it a 6/10

                            Great film...Just thought they portrayed Mr. Murata, and his wife a bit too cuckoo. If they were played to be more serious could have been a bit better IMO.

                            8/10

                            PS - Mr.Syamoto's wife has great tits

                              Really wacky and messed up movie. A bit too long and uneven to be called great but definitely a good watch.
