ON CHANNEL FOUR
BEST FILM EVER
if the TV in my bedroom had an aerial.
Actually, i could just watch the dvd...
worst. post. ever.
which is a pretentious way of saying it's ace
in the bloodiest ways possible. what's not to love?
i fancy the psychopathic girl.
the one in the yellow tracksuit i also like.
i will watch this. i was going to watch that louis theroux i taped but i will watch this instead.
he'd be shite at battle royale
is incredible. I really want to watch it again but don't really have access to Channel 4 right now.
too bad battle royale 2 requiem was gash compared to it.
I got quite obsessed with it when I was 16, and kept telling my mum that I wanted to die in Battle Royale. I don't think she liked it much.
is cool as fuck
this film, in a sick way. I remember all of the deaths, and enjoy them. Which is why I don't like the second film.
the light house massacre is definitely my favourite death scene.
If there wasn't so many gallons of blood flying around at every given opportunity, it'd be a bit better.
Japanese + Violence = <3
Extreme Asian cinema for me and helped me wan't to search for others which got me interested in Takeshi Miike, but i don't think i could watch it again. The sequal was just too terrible, so un-subtle in its apparent political views and managed to make the first one seem too much of a fluke or something. I know it was finished by his son, which might have made a difference but it was trying to be too relevent to what is going on at the moment. If that makes sense...
the best film ever.
If this film had been made by Hollywood everyone would think it was rubbish.
If the storyline and direction was exactly the same?
the acting is appalling as is most of the story. Its like a really poor B-horror movie, the only difference is its in japanese so these things are overlooked for some reason.
But the storyline makes absolutely no sense on about 100 different levels. It's literally just mindless violence, if Hollywood made a film with the same storyline people would think it was average at best. But for some reason Japanese films are automatically considered "cool" no matter what, so films with plot holes a mile wide somehow become classics.
Shame I didn't know it was on
I'd definitely watch that, even if it was a 'celebrity' version, and I fucking hate most telly.
Vinnie Jones and Stone Cold Steve Austen are in it...
