I love my new icon. I will be studying like crazy until exams are over so I put this up in honor of it.

I watched the other movies that I rented this weekend on Saturday evening.
The first one was called Taboo.
Set during Japan's Shogun era, this film looks at life in a samurai compound where young warriors are trained in swordfighting. A number of interpersonal conflicts are brewing in the training room, all centering around a handsome young samurai named Sozaburo Kano. The school's stern master can choose to intervene, or to let Kano decide his own path. Summary written by Jean-Marc Rocher
The movie was very good. It had some really great Japanese actors in it. It had Takeshi Kitano from Battle Royale and Tadanobu Asano from Ichi the Killer(he played Kakihara.
Here is the movie cover.

And the other movie I watched was called Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl.
In dreamlike mountain scenery, Toshiko makes a daring escape from her sexually warped Uncle Sonezaki. Fortunately, she met Samehada as she runs for her life, which is also escaping from some slayers. What follows is a wild chase that leads the audience into a comically violent world.

Summary written by L.H. Wong {}

Samehada is on the run from some gangsters from whom he has stolen some stolen property. During the chase, the pursuers crash into Toshiko, who is also on the run, in her case from a sex-crazed uncle. Toshiko and Samehada get together, and both are chased by bumbling hit man Yamada, who was hired by Toshiko's uncle, and by the gangsters.

I loved this movie. My favorite was the part in the bathroom with Yamada and Samehada. Samehada was played by Tadanobu Asano. A really good must see movie.
