I'm a soldier so forgive me for my lack of nice here: If you haven't signed up, don't try and do it last minute. This event is locked and capped. I will get a severe case of the butt. No one wants to see that :-)

I'm a sucker for a foreign movie, but when it comes to Thriller/Horror/Flat Out Craziness, no one does it better in my opinion than Asian cinema. So I invite you all (well, not all 400 of you) to my home to watch one (or two) of the following (by vote):

1. A Tale of Two Sisters ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anF5XiN8QY8 )

2. Battle Royale (  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-T7yPJVvXw
3. Thirst ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG4AV6kLrKY )
4. Ju-On: The Grudge ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVbWpwkCJRg )
5. Robo Geisha ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqace4SYCkU )
6. Kung Fu Hustle ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m3IB7N_PRk )

Now, the last 2 on that list are crazy random movies that really do not fit in any genre in my opinion, but they are awesome!

I am also down for changing the time/date to make it better for the majority.

    On my way there now.. Is there any specific place to park?

    July 27, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      There's a pretty big parking lot in the housing complex. You'll have parking.

    Okay, I got about 15 saying they're showing up (including Sarch McCraken). I have to put a cap on this now, as I don't want to run out of space or food. And since I see no where to put a cap on things, I'm posting it here!

    Sounds awesome. I would like to go.

    I already promised to go to the BSFS thing that runs until 6; it'll take some time to get there, but would it be cool if I arrived late? I can bring a snack to share.

    July 21, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      Sre, why not. You'll probably be in time for the second movie. :-)

    Jim and I can't make since we're heading to the Zelda concert up in Baltimore. It sounds like a lot of fun, though!

    July 20, 2013

      Awww, its okay... maybe the next one!

    Food: Don't eat dinner, food will be provided by Cluck-U Catering (I got a friend that owns one and a pretty good discount). For drinks, I'll have water and juice, for anything else I ask that people bring their own. Alcohol is allowed, but I'm not buying it :-P I have my wine.

    All Right: These are the votes! Robogeisha in the lead with 5 votes, Tale of 2 Sisters with 3 votes, Kung Fu Hustle with 2 votes, and Battle Royale with 1 vote. For those wanting to hang out, we should have enough time for 2 movies so it looks like it will be Robogeisha first, and Tale of 2 Sisters afterwards :-)

    Is this close to the BSFS? I'd like to go.

    July 18, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      I'm not sure. I don't THINK so? My place is right outside of Fort Meade where I work.

      July 19, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      If BSFS is in Baltimore, its about 30 minutes away I think.

      July 19, 2013

  • Craig F.

    I would like to vote for Robo Geisha, A tale of Two Sisters, and Kung Fu Hustle.

    I've been wanting to watch Robo-Geisha because it looks so ridiculous and over-the-top.

    1 · July 11, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      It is! It is in the genre I like to call: OMGWTFBBQ!

    "..no one does it better in my opinion than Asian cinema."

    In my opinion, that's a fact. I've been meaning to see Two Sisters and more Park Chan-wook movies.

    1 · June 19, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      So I can count your vote as 1 for Tale of Two Sisters, right?

      July 1, 2013

    • Thomas

      Yep.

      July 2, 2013

  • Danielle W.

    Votes on movies as of 1 July: Tale of 2 Sisters: 2, Battle Royale: 1, Thirst: 1, Robi Geisha: 2, Kung Fu Hustle: 1

    If you plan to come, please vote!

    Also, if anyone was wondering on food, you are welcome to bring snacks, I will probably be getting a wing platter for everyone from Cluck-U...

    I vote for any movie except Battle Royale. Seen that one way too many times.

    1 · June 22, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      So I will count you as a vote for all movies except Battle Royale :-)

    Will really try to make this meeting.

    Old Boy(Korean), which will be re-made with American actors, is pretty awesome and crazy, too. It's based on a Japanese comic book by the same name. Sympathy for Mr.Vengeance(2002) and The Chaser(2008) is also super intense, gruesome, and entertaining. There are so many Korean ones I can suggest if you're interested in more :) The ones I mentioned are on Netflix I believe.

      Sorry, I can't make it to this one, and I also can't watch horror (shame on me), but what a fun hang out idea!!

      June 23, 2013

    • Danielle W.

      Thanks for the input, and sorry you can't make it! I've seen all of the Vengeance series, and planned to bring it up at another movie night as people I have shown the series to seem to end up depressed (especially with Oldboy). I was trying to find something a little less heavy for the first Asian movie night I was hosting :-) I've lived in Korea about 5 years and know about a lot of movies, but please, give me input for later movie nights! :-D

      1 · June 23, 2013

    I vote for robo geisha. Robot, assassin, transforming geishas, what's not to love :3?

    1 · June 23, 2013

  • Danielle W.

    And so far I only see: 1 vote: Tale of Two Sisters, 1 vote: Battle Royale, 1 vote: Robogeisha.

    June 22, 2013

  • Danielle W.

    Just added links to the trailers for anyone that wanted a quicker way to look for them.

    June 22, 2013

  • David

    Sounds fun! The date and time are perfect for me, but if they were to be adjusted too much I might have to cancel. I vote for Battle Royale and Robogeisha. Looking forward to meeting the newer members! :)
