Vagabond / Movies that reminds me of Vagabond
« on: June 17, 2009, 12:31:02 PM »
This should be a thread to list anything, movie, manga or even anime that reminds you of Vagabond. I would love to hear your thoughts, as I'm sure there are a lot of movies out there I have yet to see.
I'm traveling a lot to Asia, especially Malaysia, Hong Kong and Japan. And I sure wanna spend a grand on must see movies next time I'm in Asia. If theres something you suggest and it's not related to Vagabond, please PM me, or post it in another thread.

Since I'm a huge fan of Hong-Kong movies, and watch anything Asian, be it Johnnie or Ryuhei Kitamura movies, a friend of mine asked me to get my hand on a Korean movie, "Fighter in The Wind", or "Baramui Fighter" as it's called some places.
I was bored the day I got back from Malaysia 3-4 years ago, and I decided to watch this movie, before giving it to my friend. And after only a minute I was completely dragged in! For those who want to see the movie first, I suggest you to do it, and then come back and read further. I will not spoil the plot, I will just point out things that reminds me of Vagabond and vice versea.

-Baramui Fighter is not a sword/katana movie, but it is a sort of, "way of the samurai" movie if you know what I mean. Choi Bae Dal is the protagonist. The movie is set after the end of WWII, or in the last of it, this was the
 first thing I thought about after I read Vagabond.

-Bae Dal is a "dojoyaburi". it means he challenges a dojo's sensei.

-A guy tries to rob him, but then join him. This guy is a joke basically. I can say he somehow did remind me of someone...

-Bae Dal challenges someone later and lose...

-He thinks a lot of a chick called Yoko.. But, NO! He must focus on his training.,,

-He train and develop his own style, and he even climb the mountains.... Now this is something.

-Then he comes back much stronger and less "wild" even though he looks like an animal...

Now I don't remember everything in the movie, since it's been ages I first saw this movie. But seriously, go see it. It doesn't contain long heavy fight scenes, but the fight scenes are rather realistic, short and brutal. So don't expect Crouching Tiger style fight scene.

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Baccano!
« on: May 26, 2008, 08:34:18 PM »
Hello everyone. Lets talk about Baccano!
I dont know if someone brought this up, so I guess its ok if I do.

I just finished watching Baccano! anime. Its a 13 episode, approximately 2o minutes episodes.. Anyways this series is not out yet on dvd anywhere but in Japan and Korea. I reccomend that you dont watch any previews or trailer before watching this magneficient anime so you dont spoil anything. I suppose someones already been posting Baccano on youtube- but for better quality you should look for them somewhere else.

To those whove already read the manga, I still reccomend that you watch the anime, because of the cool soundtrack and the superb animathion and drama.
Its a shame that there are only 13 episodes, I wanted to see like 25, but anyways- thats what makes it cool and special.
I wont say more, just go and see it.

Manga Mausoleum / God in Berserk
« on: December 28, 2007, 02:00:39 AM »
I was wondering if there was a god in Berserk, not like the one in the lost episode, but a god who, like some of us says, created the worlds and the existence of human and animal.

And sorry if this has already been discussed earlier, I did search both this forum as well as googled but didnt find the answer for my question.

My first post by the way.
