Beautiful Creatures ビューティフル・クリーチャーズ 光と闇に選ばれし者

I would say it's a fresh and sold quality young adult movie offering everything (humor, action, fear, a sweet romance, a healthy dose of magic) though some fans might unhappy with the adaptation reading the original novel. The film starts off beautifully with awesome visuals that would set to engage and create that visual feast for the eyes. The romance is something we'd have to get used to. If you're a fan of "Twilight(トワイライト)" and its treatment of first love between two unlikely beings separated by life, then this would be something quite up the same alley. There's plenty of cooing between the love birds here as they spend time together like any teenager in love.

Zombie Massacre ZMフォース ~ゾンビ虐殺部隊~

"Zombie Massacre" was released on DVD with my translation yesterday. It's an action film adapted from a popular game "Zombie Massacre"by Uwe Boll, who had been known for adapting games into movies such as "House of the Dead" and "Alone in the Dark". The film succeeded in describing the mercenary troops making a great effort to destroy the city controlled by zombies vividly. I sincerely hope all of you will enjoy this zombie film which will charm you with its superb zombie battle scenes using lots of weapons including Japanese swords and heavy arms.

The Wolverine ウルヴァリン:SAMURAI

A nice superhero movie with a tight script focusing on Logan. If you were looking for X Men 4, you are not going to see it here, but it's better. Hugh Jackman(ヒュー・ジャックマン)is great as always as Wolverine. It would be interesting to see him being more vulnerable and human like character than usual. Rila Fukushima(福島リラ) is superb in her role as Yukio who fights alongside Wolverine and becomes a reliable asset. Tao Okamoto(TAO)is also great in her role as Mariko, and Shingen is played by Hiroyuki Sanada(真田広之).
