Encapsulated Cinema: Assault Girls and Yoga

14 November 2010 6:10 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Well Go USA Entertainment, the distribution company behind “Ip Man”, the upcoming “Ip Man 2,” and “Legend of The Fist,” all starring Donnie Yen, has been hit and miss when it comes to their films. This is a statement that can be said of many companies in the business though. I can’t really knock them for choosing to distribute certain films, as someone has to do it, but I do have to question why I get sent some of this stuff. I mean I couldn’t make these films, and I applaud the effort that went into them, but some of them just leave me wanting more, and some just leave me wishing I hadn’t watched the film at all. The former is the case for the duo of films sent to me recently, “Assault Girls” and “Yoga.” Todd already gave a review of Mamoru Oshii’s “Assault Girls, »

2010 Holiday Movie Guide - DVD

21 October 2010 3:09 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Contrary to even our own guide to what's coming out on video-on-demand and online, rumors of the demise of those shiny discs that still take up shelf space have been greatly exaggerated. Take next week, for example, in which one will only be able to enjoy the guilty pleasure of "Lake Placid 3" or the easy charm of the Adam Scott indie comedy "Passenger Side" on DVD or upgrade to high-definition for the "Alien Quadrilogy" boxed set, a rerelease of the "Back to the Future" trilogy or better yet, Criterion editions of Stanley Kubrick's "Paths of Glory" or the Japanese curiosity "Hausu" on Blu-ray. And it's not even December yet.

Unfortunately in this time of tightened purse strings, the studios and specialty labels like Shout! Factory, Criterion and Olive Films aren't going to make this holiday season any easier on the wallet, with most digging deep into the vaults to »

Official U.S. site for Mamoru Oshii’s Assault Girls

2 September 2010 3:28 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Babes with Big guns, killing even bigger desert dwelling monsters… Yes Mamoru Oshii’s (‘Ghost in the Shell’) - eye popping action, sci-fi movie - Assault Girls is heading for U.S DVD and Blu-ray, and props should go out to American distributor Well Go U.S.A, who’ve gone to the trouble of creating an official U.S site for the release! We’ve a while to wait as it doesn’t hit the shelves until October, so in the mean we can amuse ourselves with trailers and pics aplenty. Synopsis: In the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, three battle tested women: Gray (Meisa Kuroki), Lucifer (Rinko Kikuchi), and Colonel (Hinako Saeki), distinctly armed with Assault Rifles and electrifying magic, are transported to the virtual world of Avalon F. It's here these beautiful women known as Assault Girls must test their fighting skills in an epic virtual battle »

Mamoru Oshii’s Assault Girls will attack on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in June

1 April 2010 4:47 AM, PDT | Affenheimtheater | See recent Affenheimtheater news »

Fans of heavily armed and armored girls rejoice! Geneon Entertainment Japan has announced to release Assault Girls, Mamoru Oshii’s quasi-sequel to Avalon on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on June 23, 2010 in standard and special collector’s editions. The latter will include a bonus disc with a bunch of promotion material, the ‘prequels’ to Assault Girls, Assault Girl (Oshii’s segment for True Female Tachigui: The Amazing Lives of the Fast Food Grifters, click here to watch) and Assault Girl 2 (taken from the Kiru ~ Kill omnibus), a 92-page storyboard script written by Oshii and an enhanced booklet (16 pages instead of just four).

None of these editions will include English subtitles, but according to some theatrical reviews the films dialogues are all in Eng(l/r)ish anyway. Hopefully our sweet girls had access to better vocal coaches than those cowboys in Takashi Miike’s Sukiyaki Western Django
