Looks like you got all of them again!

You're missing one, an older one that came out a month ago or so. It's an older film called The Other 1/2 and the Other 1/2, starring Tien Niu and Kam Kwok-Leung. It's about two roomates whose spouses are overseas in Canada while they are waiting for immigration clearance to join them. Interesting drama, won a couple of HKFA awards.

Trigger, the Korean film "The Anarchists" just went up at DDDHouse and could be interesting. It stars Dong-Kun Jang from "Friend" and "Nowhere to Hide".

edit - Just realized it's 4:3, so maybe there will be a better Korean release.

Watched Kokkuri on VCD tonight... it sucked. It was some drippy pseudo-supernatural psychological lesbian high-school drama that went nowhere. This film is ultra-confusing and never amounts to much in the end anyway. The characters make no sense and the plot makes even less sense. The VCD is a nice presentation as far as VCDs go. I'd suggest passing on this one.

Thanks for the suggestions... I added a few to my order. I think I forgot to add The Other 1/2... I'll see if it's not too late.

Watched Bedroom and Courtroom and Channel 69 tonight... actually, I didn't get all the way through Bedroom and Courtroom... it was boring and unfunny. Channel 69 was stupid and senseless and unfunny, but it wasn't as boring. Avoid both.

I'll second you on Bedroom and Courtroom. I think Darcy at koreanfilm.org recommended it, but it was just tedious for me.
And not funny for a comedy.

I watched Frugal Game last night with Meriam. It wasn't funny. It wasn't horrible either. It was just blah. Waste of time and money if you ask me. Anyone wanting me to comment further feel free to ask.

I watched Christmas in August last night - I thought it was boring. There are tons of better movies out there.

I'll take that as a request and as soon as I watch them, I'll let you know - I have Chaos, but I'm not even sure if I have Wasabi yet... if I don't, it's on my list to pick up. I'll check out Chaos sometime in the next few days.
