Midori (Japan, 1992, anime)


This is a very disturbing story about a young girl called Midori who ends up in a circus, practically as a slave. At first, with no protection, she is doing all the hard work for everyone else, and gets raped and molested by freaks. After a while a magician Masanitsu joins the circus and makes it profitable again which gains him influence. He takes Midori under his care and treats her nice, but that arises jealousy among other members so Midoris troubles are far from over.

WHICH country's ASIAN do you prefer and WHY?


The Japanese are stuck on ghosts (with wet hair) or torture porn, neither of which do much for me as ghost stories usually bore me (sorry, not ALL but most) and I prefer creepy to gory as gory is just about pain not fear. The Koreans have made some great revenge and serial killer movies but that is kinda the fringe of horror as they CAN be categorized as CRIME THRILLERS etc. THE HOST, for ME, was pure boring garbage.

Are there people who prefer dubbing to subtitles?


I ask only because I watch a ka-boodle of foreign films, hate dubbing and pretty much always have.

Dubbing for the most part destroys my ability to take the film seriously. All the emotion in the dialogue is lost and when voice actors are hired the voices selected are usually dead wrong for the characters portrayed. I was just wondering if there really were people out there who prefer dubbing, and if so... Why?
