You can just google it pretty easily.

It should be KIBA but the subtitler called it Kiva (Kibat makes more sense than Kivat). I watched it last night. A lot of other full-length Kamen Rider movies are on YouTube subtitled too. But I never really liked Kamen Rider. I admit it's a bit more low-key than other tokusatsu shows and has a much more mature tone (relatively speaking), but I just could never get into it.

Link please? I never watched Kiva, but I've seen him in Decade. So I want to watch this movie.

Here you go.
Kamen Rider Kiva King of the Castle in the Demon World

But I never really liked Kamen Rider. I admit it's a bit more low-key than other tokusatsu shows and has a much more mature tone (relatively speaking), but I just could never get into it.

Yeah its ok. I just recently got into watching Kamen Rider after a long hiatus (I watched Black sometime in the early 90s). I just always remember it is a children's show and it must not be taken seriously, as with all other Japanese superhero shows. The toys are awesome though. And the Japanese kids acting out their favorite hero is so cute~

He lived long enough to write a scathing review of the new Evil Dead at least, heh. That dude never did much like the horror genre, at least not the more exploitative stuff.

Which is funny because he gave Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn 3 out of 4 stars, as proudly proclaimed on the VHS box cover for the movie.
Remember that huge outcry when he said video games weren't and never could be art? It's too bad so many gamers are so insecure in the legitimacy of their hobby that a small put-down from a critic of a more established artform got them all riled up. Personally though I never quite "bought" Ebert's argument for film-as-art, which was, at least as it has been described to me, essentially "a movie is the director's vision therefore it's art". Which is absurd because it completely ignores the fundamentally collaborative nature of filmmaking. Of course someone with that kind of thinking would never accept games, possibly the most inherently collaborative artform, as legitimate.

It's like we forget celebrities are all too flawed humans sometimes.

Goodnight, sweet Prince. And a parade of dancing hotdogs and popcorn guide thee to the lobby.

Also the last movie I watched was Slayers: The Motion Picture it holds up pretty well but seems much less risque than it did when I was 11.

Watched "Brave" last night. Then deleted it promptly. No way in hell that should have beat out "Wreck-It Ralph". Definitely one of the low-points in Pixar's repertoire. Even "Wall-E" was a better movie. That "Brave" won that many awards is just proof Hollywood has an unholy agenda. And no, I'm not saying this as a fan of "Wreck-It Ralph", I'm saying it as someone who was bored 80% of the movie. The bear was a cursed prince? Ooh, what a twist! ... So what? The witch stole the film and she only had 1.25 scenes. It lacked any Pixar charm. Nice soundtrack though, I think. Can't remember if I was awake enough to listen to it all.

Okay, you are invited to hang out with me and my buddy in Tacoma,WA. Get his girl out of the house and we can have a TMNT marathon. All four movies then maybe the original cartoon series as well (which he has all of). We'll be fat and die of a heart attack on the way home afterward, but it'll be fun.

Oh I remembered watching Rashomon for my literature class.
It was originally a short story titled "In a Grove" by Ryuunosuke Akutagawa.

Can I come, tooooo? I have the TMNT pizza box set on Bloo-ray.

And the whole original toon.

And the whole 2003 toon.

And all of the Nick toon on DVR up till now.

And almost all of the entire Mirage and Image run of the comics.

And most of the Archie ics. (See what I did there? Tried to be all cool like when people shorthand 'zine for "magazine.")

I have toys, too... We could play-fight with Turtles toys.

And I have a photocopy of a semiofficial TMNT porno mini-comic. >_> We could, uh, huddle around and read that, too.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Evil Dead (2013)

Not my kind of movie, but how was it?

Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man)

Ahh an old rental store favorite of mine. As I understand it it's essentially a sort of quasi Dylan Dog movie. The more recent Dylan Dog film got 8% on rotten tomatoes and seems to be a much more Americanized and straight forward movie so I'm not sure I'll go out of my way to see that one. But I'd recommend Dellamorte Dellamore to anyone interested in unusual horror/comedy art films.

Dellamorte certainly has much more to do with the Dylan Dog comics than the US movie. A number of people basically consider it "the real Dylan Dog movie."

I just wish the novel and more works by the author were published in English. From my understanding, the movie is kind of a hodgepodge of different works and ideas. I don't know what Francesco Dellamorte's original personality was like, but Wikipedia makes it sound like he's the Italian equivalent to Dylan Dog. The filmmakers must have thought the two characters were similar enough to borrow Dylan Dog's appearance directly out of the comics—right down to the use of Rupert Everett whom Dylan was modeled after. (Not that Ratty doesn't know any of this, but for anyone else interested.)

But yeah, there's a nice big tome of Dylan comics that came out a few years ago. It was around $16–17 for nearly 700 pages. I snatched that up right away; seems it might be OOP now. Some of the most fun I've had reading comics.

Dellamorte Dellamore is just...yeah. It was a total blind buy when it came out on DVD some years back because some horror buffs were talking about it being like THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER and how it was almost more of a tragic romantic comedy than a horror film, so I saw it cheap online and it became one of my favorite movies on first watch. Just got the Italian Blu-ray for it so that was a treat to see.



Aaaaaaaaaaaas for the Evil Dead remake, it's a ton of fun. No idea how it'll stand up to multiple rewatchings, but I liked it enough to see it twice so far. Its use of practical gore effects is downright amazing. However, it has zero atmosphere to speak of. Just kind of abandons all that for a rollercoaster thrill ride, which is too bad considering the first two movies had such heavy atmosphere and moments of true dread (yes, even the second one despite its slapstick comedic leanings).

And it has the greatest after-credits sequence ever:

Awesome!

EDIT: Since Abnormal Freak didn't put his reply in a spoiler and I guess it would be a little silly to carry on a whole conversation in spoiler tags I'm un-spoiler tagging the text below.

I've debated with myself over the last few years whether I would want to see a sequel to Army of Darkness or not considering how much older Campbell is now, it's a definite "no" with anyone else in the role.
Campbell himself has of course said many times he won't do it and asked the question "Did anyone really want to see Indiana Jones 4?" and whether anyone was genuinely satisfied with that movie. I see his point, but since ED2 Ash has been as much a parody of the badass action/horror hero as he is the epitome of the trope, unlike Jones who has always been more of a straight wish-fulfillment fantasy for the audience, so an older Ash might be doable. They could make his age an extension of the "joke". But not if it overextends to the point that he's more joke than cheesy bona-fide hero, it's a delicate balance. On the other hand they could ramp-up the seriousness and darkness and make it more ED2 than AoD, which would be interesting. Exploring how Ash has been haunted all these years by the events and now has to face the evil one more time. Whatever the direction, if anyone could make it work, it'd be Campbell and Raimi.

For something like ten years now, Raimi keeps saying he'll "begin writing Evil Dead 4 with brother Ivan this summer." He just said that again only a month ago; dude's the biggest troll around. I'm convinced his sadism extends beyond torturing Bruce and into the fandom as well.

But I would hope with the opening weekend success (and hopefully continued success) of the remake that Sam will actually give it more thought this time around and actually make something of it. With Sam, Bruce, and Rob Tapert all still the rightsholders and head producers on the remake, it's clear that they care about the property. I think the time to do a sequel to the Ash saga is now.

I really think they ought to follow through with the director's cut ending to Army of Darkness.

I'd prefer a fourth movie to be more in line with Evil Dead II. Something dark (and really, there's some seriously disturbing stuff in that movie, something most horror-comedies don't have) but also outrageously silly. I love me some Army of Darkness, but it would be nice to see the original series go back to its horror roots.
