Well, if you've got 9 hours check out The Human Condition Trilogy starring Tatsuya Nakadai.

He get out of going to the front during the Russo-Japanese War overseeing a mining camp where prisoners of war are brought in. He stands up for their rights, loses his position, gets drafted, kicked around by the brass for being a pacifist and becomes the best soldier in his outfit. Al that in the first 3 -4 hours.

It really is an epic movie.

I watched The Outrage tonight. A western version of Rashomon starring Paul Newman, Edward G. Robinson, William Shatner, Laurence Harvey, and Clair Bloom.

When the Last Sword Is Drawn and The Hidden Blade are great examples of life as a Samurai. The Sword of Doom, starring Tatsuya Nakadai as a sociopathic killer is one of my all time favorites and not to be missed. Also featuring Toshiro Mifune.

Maybe not for everybody, but The Happiness of Us Alone, about a deaf woman who marries a deaf and dumb man and the hardships they endure is a great movie.

As for J-horror, Ichi the Killer, Audition or anything by Takashi Miike is a good bet for a gore fest and all out crazy.
I also will sit through some kool Japanese made movies from the past. I watch all Janus made films when I have the free time .

You might like this one. Onibaba

In addition to the 2750+ degreed architects and engineers at http://www.ae911truth.org/ there are thousands of pilots involved in the 9-11 truth movement too. They've made a couple movies like 9-11 Intercepted and several documentaries like this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZrpNK4lJVc

I suggest all the dumb rednecks who believe "duh gubmint" try flying a 757 into the bottom floor of the Pentagon themselves. Microsoft flight simulator works just fine if you have that. The Pentagon sits in a depression in the ground and the "ram" cushion effect from those large wings makes it literally IMPOSSIBLE. That's a scientific fact not an al-Qaeda conspiracy theory.
