    Go Nagai's legendary action/horror manga gets the live action treatment in director Hiroyuki Nasu's tale of a demonic anti-hero caught-up in a battle between the forces of evil and the fascist human leaders who would spark a supernatural war. Akira and Ryo (real life twins Hisato and Yusuke Izaki) have just received word that the experiments conducted by Ryo's father in Antarctica have gone horribly awry - unleashing a malevolent horde of demon invaders and potentially setting the apocalypse into motion. Now, as a powerful demonic force possesses Akira, he is suddenly transformed into a mighty yet conscientious demonic entity known as Devilman. As the forces of hell plot the downfall of mankind, a slew of dictatorial leaders emerge to fight back against the powerful otherworldly forces. With the situation quickly spiraling out of control, the powerful Devilman attempts to stave off both sides, and Ryo becomes corrupted by a malevolent demon intent on claiming the planet for the powers of hell. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Carol Fuchs adapts writer/director Sandra Nettelbeck's screenplay for the 2001 romantic drama Mostly Martha for this Scott Hicks directed remake starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, and Patricia Clarkson. Kate Armstrong (Jones) is the master chef who is equally intense both in and out of the kitchen. Though Kate's "Type A" personality serves her well when whipping up meals in the trendy Manhattan eatery where she has made a name for herself, it threatens to sink her when she is named as the guardian of her nine-year-old niece Zoe (Little Miss Sunshine's Abigail Breslin). To complicate matters, an impetuous new sous chef named Nick Palmer (Eckhart) has recently joined the kitchen staff and his freewheeling personality seems to stand in direct opposition to Kate's unwavering perfectionism. Yet, despite the fact that they couldn't be more different on the surface, there's no denying the strong attraction between Kate and Nick. As the rivalry between the competitive cooks gradually gives way to romance, the lessons learned by compromising in the kitchen reveal to Kate the importance of learning to openly express herself in order to truly connect with Zoe and find romance with the good-natured Nick. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Includes:3 Seconds Before Explosion (1967) Cops vs. Thugs (1975) Yakuza Graveyard (1976) Hit Man File (2005) 3 Seconds Before Explosion A renegade superspy infiltrates a violent gang of international jewel thieves in this fast-paced crime thriller from Nikkatsu Studios. His killer instincts honed to deadly perfection by a shadowy espionage bureau, Yabuki (Akira Kobayashi) abandons the organization that rained him and joins forces with fearless mercenary Yamawaki (Hideki Takahashi) to follow a trail of jewels stolen during the last days of World War II. When that trail leads Yabuki and Yamawaki to the highest levels of government and corporate malfeasance, the conspiracy is blown sky high and the bullets start to fly. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Cops vs. Thugs The director of Battle Royale and The Yakuza Papers delivers yet another gritty yakuza masterpiece in this brutal tale of two warring underworld factions determined to gain ultimate power over Kurashima City. The year is 1963, and the delicate balance of power in Kurashima City is shakily maintained between two warring factions. The political influence of the Kawade gang helps to legitimize the vicious group's lucrative rackets scheme, and the uneasy alliance shared between their rivals the Ohara gang and the corrupt local police force ensures that neither gang gets too much power. When the lure of some valuable waterfront property becomes too much for the Ohara boss to resist, however, the volatile standoff receives just the catalyst needed to spark a vicious bloodbath between the gangsters, cops, and politicians all looking to come out on top. The all-seeing eye of the horrific hurricane of violence, Detective Kuno of the Kurashima City Violence Squad remains torn by his childhood allegiance with a powerful yakuza kingpin and the increasing pressure from his reform-minded superiors to keep the city streets safe for the frightened citizens. An inherently decent man who recognizes the code of ethics on both sides of the law, Detective Kuno's itchy trigger finger finds him falling down an ever-darker path as he coolly plays both sides by walking a line that could be pulled out from under him at any moment. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Yakuza Graveyard A haunted detective whose unconventional methods virtually define the term rogue cop is set up for failure when his corrupt superiors assign him the task of heading the organized crime beat in this landmark yakuza masterpiece from the director of Battle Royale and Black Lizard. His guilt at having widowed the woman who has now become his lover weighing heavier on his shoulders with each passing day, Detective Kuroiwa (Tetsuya Watari) is given strict "hands off" orders when assigned the task of cleaning up the Nishida underworld. Suddenly plunged into a far-reaching power-play conspiracy sanctioned by the police and pitting the violent yakuza gangsters against one another for a bloody battle to the death, the renegade cop finds his already-precarious situation even further complicated when he becomes romantically entangled with Keiko (Maiko Kaji), the half-Korean wife of Nishida's most notorious crime boss. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Hit Man File A lone wolf assassin must flee both the vengeful mafia and the crooked authorities in this Thai crime drama from the same studio that brought Tony Jaa's high flying martial arts masterpiece Ong Bak to the screen. In the violence of the Thai underworld it's can be virtually impossible at distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys. When you can't tell who to trust from who to kill, the only option left is to run. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
