About Bat 7665 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: GTA Online & Mortal Kombat 11


  1. Battle Royale – brilliant premise, thrilling, intense and (occasionally) funny…and some great, gruesome deaths! A classic.

  2. Wow – vast category of films to pick from: Battle Royal, Hard Boiled, Red Cliff, The Ring, The Host! I could go on and on, but am going to pick Ju-On! 🙂

  3. The Killer, Chow Yun Fat at his most savage directed by John Woo and produced by Tsui Hark, need I say more.

  4. Bruce Lee – Enter The Dragon because it portrayed excellent martial art skills and was extremely entertaining!

  5. Battle Royale simply because I reckon it should be all that Big Brother should be…I might even watch it then 😉 Hunger Games is a very pale immitation of this wonderful movie.

  6. The Raid 2 – didn’t think it was possible to get better than the first one. How wrong was i! Insane action over two hours, the prison fight scene is one of the most dynamic scenes in cinema

  7. survive style 5+. not just my favourite asian movie but my favourite movie. it has literally everything. laughs, chills, action, romance, drama, emotion and vinnie jones. bonkers, fun and surprisingly affecting. cannot recommend it enough.

  8. I’ve always loved Enter the Dragon & Fists of Fury, but my favourite Asian movie, even though directed by Danny Boyle has to be Slumdog Millionaire.

  9. Kung Fu Hustle – 13 year old me, on holiday in the Philippines, had never been fully immersed into the world of Asian film.
    Going to the cinema with my cousins, we decided to go watch it with no preconceptions and the next 90 minutes were just an exhilarating whirlwind that took my breath away. I had never seen anything like it. I was finally introduced to the idiosyncrasy of Asian cinema and it blew my mind.
    Have never looked back since.

  10. I prefer animations, and my favorite is Spirited Away- it’s awe inspiring, love the animation style, effects, use of color tones. It’s magical.

  11. Old Boy – though I did see an amazing Thai film a few weeks back that I have forgotten the name of & *that* is bugging the hell out of me!

  12. My favourite Asian film was last years release ‘Dearest’. It deals with the really sensitive issue of child abduction in China. It is actually based on a real life case, about a divorced couple who search for 3 years to find their missing son, who was kidnapped by a migrant worker. It’s a fantastic film!
