Watched a few more Korean movies
Finally got to see 2009. Very good story esp. since it could be classified as a sci-fi thriller. Basically about an alternate timeline where Japan never got kicked out of Korea, didnt lose in WWII, Korean War never happened etc.
I think its criminal JSA isnt more widely known. Its heartwrenching at times, but i recommend it highly.
Public Enemy reminded me of a Takashi Miike film. If you get past some of the wierdness/silliness its a hell of a good story about a crooked, barely competent cop who realizes he actually does care law and justice. Also has a ton of quotes.
Also found this site with some good pan-asian film reviews

Anybody seen Natural City? It's new on DVD, looked promising and was billed as a Korean "Blade Runner", but with the main theme of "love". When I saw that I had a feeling it was going to be more of a "too-hot-to-be-cyborg-cyborg-lady" falling in love or something after a few courtesy action sequences, and getting lame, rather than getting bloody.Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider
Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower
The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.
dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing
Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone
