"Life is a game. So fight for survival and see if you're worth it."

At its most basic level, Battle Royale is a combination of Lord of the Flies and The Running Man; utilising the time-worn concept of a group of people who are conscripted, equipped with weapons and forced to kill or be killed until only one contestant remains. It's an idea which dates back to the days of the Roman e... read more

Over the top in some parts, but it's highly enjoyable.

I had this film recommended to me around a few years back, and getting a few snippets of what it was all about, I can't exactly say I was in a great deal of a rush to watch it, but all in good time it seems...as this turned out to be one of my favourite films I've watched so far. I can't really say I was ever that fussed with al... read more

Because I Was Curious, Dammit! Part 2 (5 movies items)

"Battle Royale is said to be the inspiration for the Hunger Games. Regardless of that, Battle Royale did make me curious. It actually is worth watching and I doubt that any Hunger Games movie can top it."

Best Horror Films Ever (15 movies items)

"One of my favourite films EVER! Would you class it as a horror? I love Kazuo Kiriyama and Kazushi Niida. I really do feel sorry for Niida. And Nobu. But the most loyal characters are definitely Mimura, Iijima and Seto... Kawada is a bad ass... But somehow, Noriko Nakagawa seems to annoy me very slightly. I think I would've preferred Mitsuko Souma to survive instead of her. WHO WANTS MITSUKO/KIRIYAMA FAN FICTION? Totally love this film. Real allegorical stuff. But too bad Hunger Games h"
