    I had a roommate in college that was obsessed with this movie so I'd seen quite a bit of it in pieces, but this is the first time I watched all the way through from beginning to end.

    Going back even further, when I first heard about this movie not long after it came out, I assumed that it is a horror movie. It is not. I would characterize it as a war movie or survival movie with plenty of…

    For a long while you would’ve heard The Hunger Games upon its original release being compared to one film and that would be what’s on the 365 Film list today, Battle Royale, though where as The Hunger Games builds on the characters from different districts coming together to train for said games for a ‘reality TV event’, Battle Royale however is more grim in the angle of plucking these school kids from a field trip by gassing them and then…

    This was bonkers, sometimes in a great way, sometimes just bonkers.

    I like this more for its conceptual premise, willingness to push boundaries of taste and its killer introductory first act than as a sustained feature, and after that set up the 'main event' feels lacking. Contained to an island, the film does a shockingly bad job of establishing even basic spatial relationships of the action so we have no real feel for the terrain or the different players in it. Some of the action is lacklustre as well, with some…

    This is a good movie! Better than The Hunger Games (2012)

    In Japan, a class of students are taken to an island to take part in Battle Royale, an event where you kill to win!

    Tatsuya Fujiwara is incredibly great in this! He has a lot of emotion and depth.
    Aki Maeda is really good too! She has quite a few moments were she doesn't have dialogue but her facial expressions and body language are great!
    Takeshi Kitano is awesome!…

    A ton of genre fans will banter this movie about and say thing like "if you want to see the Hunger Games that kicks ass Watch this". I, however did not find this to be the case. In fact I find Hunger Games to be better in every way. The only thing missing is the gratuitous violence that is in Battle Royale. And I like gratuitous violence but it does not automatically make a movie good. This is not deep or clever in anyway. It is entertaining.
