Liar Game: Reborn Trailer

Goregirl announced that she will be reviewing the films of Ishiro Honda, Akira Kurosawa and Mikio Naruse which is totally cool because the more people taking a look at these classics the better. Keep checking her blog for the reviews! My own Kurosawa season is far from ready considering I’ve yet to touch his crime dramas but I’ll get there.

Following on from last week my latest Akira Kurosawa film is another one of his early works – The Most Beautiful (1944). Having watched No Regrets For Our Youth last week it is interesting to see how far Kurosawa progressed as a director when I compare his early films to his classics in the 60’s.

As well as trying my hand at a Kurosawa season I’m going to attempt podcasting. The first test is tomorrow… so hopefully I get it out by the end of next week. Anyway how does the Japanese box office from the end of last month shape up?

01. In Time
02. Always: Sunset on Third Street 3
03. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
04. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
05. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

06. The Wings of the Kirin
07. Hayabusa: The Long Voyage Home
08. Ace Attorney
09. Japan’s Wildlife: The Untold Story
10. Afro Tanaka

Almost total domination of the top five by Hollywood studios but at least Ace Attorney is still in the top ten. On to this week’s newest releases… or should that be release…

Liar Game: Reborn

Release Date: 3rd March 2012

Running Time: N/A

Director: Hiroaki Matsuyama

Writer: Shinobu Kaitani (manga)

Starring: Shota Matsuda, Mikako Tabe, Mana Ashida


This is the sequel to the 2010 film Liar Game: The Final Stage and it retains the same director. Shota Matsuda reprises his role as a genius con artist named Shinichi Akiyama who is forced into another deadly high-stakes game of lying to win a fortune but he faces other desperate players who will go to any lengths to secure that money.

    Thanks for the mention 😉 A podcast…great! I look forward to checking it out! I have watched 3 Kurosawa films in the last couple weeks; Drunken Angel, Stray Dog, and Yojimbo. I’m only going to review one of them, but I actually enjoyed all 3 in varying degrees. Takashi Shimura and Toshiro Mifune are both so damn watchable!
