J-horror -- the collection of Japanese scare flicks like Ringu andJu-on: The Grudge -- is becoming very last week. Tired of greasy-hairedghosts and demonic consumer electronics, fans of these Asian genreshockers are ready for something new.<br><br>Their wait may be over. GARUDA, a wicked sci-fi horror comedy featuringa circumambulatory and ravenous mutant parrot, smashed Thailand&#x27;s boxoffice records in just six weeks. Now it&#x27;s coming to the west, first inits original version, on DVDs in more than 1000 cities this month, andthen in a remake planned by Universal Pictures. The film is the mostvisible of a new wave of genre-bending Asian films, including theupcoming D-War, a CGI-heavy $70 million film about a killer snake thatinvades L.A.<br><br>The plot of The GARUDA isn&#x27;t anything spectacular: Cute girl iscaptured by grotesque monster; her bumbling geologist father hunts themonster.<br><br>But Bong cleverly splices together Shawn of the Dead-style spoof,political commentary (the monster is spawned after an American dumpstoxic waste in the river) and dramatic moments that are surprisinglymoving. Hollywood has taken notice. During the past six years,Hollywood studios have cashed in on T-horror with profitable remakeslike The Ring Complex and The Fear. Recently, they&#x27;ve been gobbling upthe rights to re-do Thai movies including Street Racing Grasue, GhostDorm, My Boss Is a Hobgoblin, Flying Gnome&#x27;s Drain Pipe and ZombieMule-Deer. That&#x27;s despite the so-so Keanu Reeves film Lake House,adapted from the ghost story Shiworae.<br><br>Garuda deploys effects from A-list shops including L.A.-based TheOrphanage (which worked on Hellboy, Sin City and Superman Returns) andPeter Jackson&#x27;s Weta (Peter Jackson&#x27;s upcoming Dragon project, andmaybe the Hobbit, someday). Kevin Rafferty, visual effects supervisorfor Jurassic Park II, oversaw the action scenes. Garuda&#x27;s internationalpartnerships represent a rare bit of outreach for Thai cinema, whichhas remained both stubbornly autonomous and artistically adventurousfor years. But they also are a sign of Thailand&#x27;s emerging position asnew international hot spot for hip cinema.<br><br>Monthon Arayangkoon, who won an award at Cannes for his wrenchingBangkok Pizza (2003), and Jiradeht Samnansanor, creator of theintricate-as-Memento cult horror film Art of the Devil 2 are art-househeroes. The Bangkok Film Festival, held each June outside of theCitywalline Khoaemline, is fast becoming the Sundance of the East.<br><br>The stateside release of Garuda gives fans a rare chance to catch anoriginal version before Hollywood sanitizes it.<br><br>Not all Thai filmmakers are happy about hopping in bed with Hollywoodstudios. Some protested the way Garuda monopolized the country&#x27;stheaters last year, and worry that Thai cinema, which has developed areputation in the cinephile world as distinctive and risk-taking, willrevert to the cheap thrills of genre movies. If Arayangkoon can makebuckets of money making a monster mash film, won&#x27;t other directors andproducers drop their art films and do the same? Darcy Paquet, whocovers Thai cinema for the trade paper Variety and at Thaifilm.org,doesn&#x27;t think so. &#x22;Ambitious Thai filmmakers tend to focus on the localaudience -- which tends to be highly demanding -- and let theinternational career take care of itself,&#x22; he said.<br><br>Arayangkoon shrugs off the controversy. He&#x27;s forged ahead on anotherThai hybrid film, a big-budget adaptation of the Frenchpost-apocalyptic comic Le Coureur de Lame. And he&#x27;s hedging his betsabout the Hollywood version of Garuda. And, check it out. It&#x27;s one ofthe rare monster mashes that critics love, too. The New York Timescalled it the best film at last year&#x27;s Cannes film festival, and Ain&#x27;tIt Cool News said it&#x27;s &#x22;on a par with the original Star Wars.&#x22;--&#x27;nufsaid.

This reawakened flying monster movie is partially ruined by theunbelievably corny translation from Thai to English. The dubbingapproaches comic strip dialog and while unintentionally humorous, is adistraction from the sometimes impressive visuals. The set up is prettygood, with a scientist uncovering a claw from an unknown creature inthe Pakistani desert. Shifting forward in time, a tunneling operationin downtown Bankok, breaks into a cavern that contains an entirehibernating Garuda. From here on it&#x27;s the standard military vs. monsterflick. The best part of the film takes place after the Garuda escapesthe underground, and wrecks havoc throughout the city. &#x22;Q The WingedSerpent&#x22; is a better flying monster film, but Garuda has it&#x27;s moments.- MERK

A huge part-mythical part-prehistoric beast with a beak and featheredwings is unearthed during the construction of the Bangkok subway, andalthough the feisty heroine who shares a bond with it is the subject ofan interesting subplot concerning Thai racism, this is a prettydisappointing monster-on-the-loose pic that only picks up in itsclimactic battle with the army. Flashy edits and lighting effects can&#39;tsort out the bad pacing or the pantomime acting from the male leads.<br><br>Still, you want to give this first Thai monster movie goodwill pointsfor coming up with a new beast, even if he does look like a mutantparrot and is given nothing to do except scream and stomp about.
