    Years ago I saw it in the bookstore and read the first few chapters and liked what I saw, but since my reading list was already too long I passed it up. A while later, when I one of the series I was reading had ended, I went back to try and find it again but either the store was perpetually sold out or decided to no longer carry the series.

    So, every once in I while I'd do a google search looking for the series, but come up empty. I owe your sister a whole pile of gratitude.

    And yeah, I love the gross/creepy manga. :)

    If you love creepy/gross manga, you should read Franken Fran. It's somewhere between a collection of loosely-connected twilight zone-style stories, and a medical drama, and a dark comedy

    +1. I was never terribly fond of Tomie (it's a neat premise but gets repeated over and over with little innovation, so I grew tired of it fairly quickly), but Uzumaki is amazing, and his anthology "Flesh-Colored Horror" is also very creepy.

    I'll also recommend "Berserk" and "Parasyte", both of which have a great deal of inspired lunacy and disgustingness in their monster designs. Though if you have a problem with "gratuitous ultraviolence" and "male genital nudity (sort of)", respectively, these are not the titles for you.

    I haven't seen it, but martial arts movies in the Old West is a somewhat small field.

    Don't think so, unless I'm completely misremembering. According to the plot notes on Wikipedia the main bad guy is a mexican bandit and not chinese

    It was about a man and a woman having an affair. I think they met once a year at a hotel. Some scenes in the film include one where the woman is pregnant when she shows up. And in another scene the man has become depressed and is advocating using nuclear weapons on Vietnam because his son died in the war.

    I have a movie I need to find. Its a dark comedy about a war in eastern europe I think it maybe be set in Yugoslavia or at least that area. Fairly modern. There's a scene (or a large chunk of the movie) where one of the characters steps on a landmine and can't move or he would set it off.

    Other than that I remember nothing.

    I saw the old movie that is similiar to Romeo Juliet but it is about two clans of small people who battle eachother. When these small people dies, they turn into dust. They live in a garden, owned by a large human.

    No, It's much older and live action. Shown on Hallmark back in Burma. Size: More like pixie. It also involves a human who hated the war between pixie montague and capulet war. Plus More battle.

    I have a challenge for the playground here. Not actually a film, but a book - still, this seems more appropriate than starting a whole new thread.

    In this book, there was a culture which counted in base five. Either the number ten or the number twenty-five was rendered as fi'five. And that is literally all I remember of it. Any thoughts?

    I saw this movie on TV a while ago and remember looking it up, but can't remember the name. It was a horror film, possibly Canadian, where there where two protagonists in this old hotel/motel thing. It had several stories, and they wanted to investigate the basement. They even had like ghost equipment, but when they actually found evidence of something weird the guy just ran away, went into his car and left. That's just about everything I can remember, though I think the girl went to a coffee shop or something, and there was only like one guest if that.

    Hm, let's give this a try.

    This could be hard as I only caught the later parts. The movie was set during one of the world wars I think, a small group of people in the trenches. There seemed to be some kind of supernatural threat that is implied, but never seen. Something that messed with their minds and possibly created illusions. I think something about strange fog as well. Might have been an European production.


    A second one, hopefully easier. Mother is driving through the night with her teenage daughter. The daughter listens to some creepy Indian music until the mother makes her stop. At a rest, she somehow loses her daughter. When the police is called her (ex?)husband says I think they have no daughter and the woman is just imagining her. Didn't see much else of the movie. I mostly want to find that music again cause it really was a bit creepy.

    I remember seeing this one in a video store! Can't remember the name either, though XD

    Lemme try to find what it was.

    EDIT: Or I remember one like it, since I found the one I knew of and it's not this.

    That was it, thank you!

    Well, just watched it... Decent, but not as good as I hoped. Could have been great if they kept it ambiguous whether there is something supernatural or the soldiers are just going mad. The set and atmosphere was well done.

    This one is actually a tv show. All I remember is that this guy finds a fully functioning mech in a junkyard, and is able to buy it for $5 since everything is that price (I'm not actually sure if it was $5 exactly, but it was something like that).

    I also have a very vague memory of...mutating cheese and a monster escaping from a video game. However, that might not be accurate

    In any case, if anybody knows what it is I'm thinking of I'd appreciate the help! Thanks
