While I like Scott Pilgrim overall - due to its amazing supporting cast, Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are both absolutely horrible in this, so it's strange to read that you liked Cera....

I'd say that both her character and situation are quite realistic because of what you mentioned before:

Maybe because of the French title? Though all English adaptations of it I've heard about don't change the name either.

It's weird how some titles do get translated when they're released in...

I have no idea what I'd nominate, but I would potentially join if I found something. I joined the 4th one and due to the short runtimes, it was a breeze to get through.

I think it was the numbers that confused me because typically when there's a tie, the next place is one spot lower. So if two films tied for spot #2, the next film would be #4 instead of #3, and so...

Re: Asian Film Hall of Fame

So did Rashomon and Paprika tie for first, or did I miss a reveal in the thread?

Black Rain was my #2 as well, though I went back and forth with what I have as #1 for awhile.

Re: Asian Film Hall of Fame

Is there another tie, or am I bad at counting? There are four films left and three places, unless I missed something.

Drunken Angel was pretty low on my list as well at #9. There were aspects of it I really liked, but it left a lot to be desired. I could see a better film in there that I'm sure I would've loved. I...

Other than Dust in the Wind, Tears of the Black Tiger was the only other film in this HoF that I didn't really connect with. It was my #10. I might need to revisit it sometime, because I feel I might...

Re: Asian Film Hall of Fame

Dust in the Wind was last on my ballot. I didn't hate it or anything, but it's just not the kind of film that I find engaging.

Snake in the Eagle's Shadow was #7 on my list. It had been awhile since I'd watched a kung-fu comedy film, so I was able to appreciate the tropes and it sparked a lot of nostalgia.

Is the missing film from your expected top 5 Daimajin? I'd have to go back through the reviews again, but that seemed to have a good overall reception as well.

I'm really interested to see how the...

My only guess is that Paprika will do really well, since I think everyone seemed to like that one. At the very least, no one hated it.
