AAAAAUUGGGHHH!!!!!!

...in other words, yeys. I seen it.  :-X

Now, uh, on to happier thoughts. Yep, Clockwork Orange is cool, never losing its ability to shock or mesmerize. The book is so much better though. And as for Gozu, that happens to be one of my all time favorite feel-good movies. ^_^ Nothing beats sitting down with your friends to watch that with glutinous rice and milk for everybody. Yay!

For some truly absurd insanity no one has heard of and those who have wish they hadn't, check out Visitor Q (another Takashi Miike joint - I laughed really fucking hard watching this crack-induced quackfest) and what I like to think of as the unofficial sequel Red Room. If you're as sick of reality TV as I am, you're gonna love this grimace-inducing gem of a film.

One day I'll get around to seeing all of Miike's work. Kind of hard, though, considering he's made so many, sometimes several films in one year. Very busy guy.

I love all the movies I've seen--Dead or Alive trilogy, Audition, Ichi the Killer, Gozu. Good stuff. The next one I'd like to see is Happiness of the Katakuris. Sounds so weird.

I just discovered GreenCine. Netflix-style service, but focusing on more independent-type films. Lots of movies available there that Netflix doesn't have, so I think I'll sign up soon.

I just ordered The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (Argento's first film--seriously, this guy is one of my absolute favorite directors, right up there with Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa) and Brain Damage. Looking forward to those along with all the other films I ordered (should hopefully come tomorrow). Brain Damage was made by the guy who did Basket Case and Frankenhooker...both of which are awesome films.





Suuuuch funny films. The part in Frankenhooker when all the whores blow up from ingesting the super-crack had me rolling on the floor.

Oh, and speaking of Argento, his new film, The Mother of Tears--the final in the "Three Mothers trilogy"--is playing near me next week, one night only. Gotta get a reserve ticket soon, just in case! Don't wanna miss that.

Oh dear lord, Frankenhooker! I still wake up sometimes and hear "Wanna' date?" next to me. - The horror.... Anyway, Miike is definitely a director for the ages. And his filmography is just remarkable. So many great films. Fudoh - The Next Generation is a picture-perfect Manga to movie adaptation, Izo shines as his own Matrix-flavored mind-blower, City of Lost Souls delivers a knock-out punch to the viewer by destroying practically every action movie convention out there, The Way to Fight proves violence can in fact be the most hilarious and sweetest expression of feeling out there, One Missed Call[/i] (the original, duhh) IS Japanese horror at its finest and grittiest, and Zebraman both apes and tops all of Japan's zany super-soldier hero shows masterfully. Even his family fair like The Great Yokai War is great fun to watch. Ahh, I could go on all day here.

Lemme' just say, folks who don't know Takashi Miike do need to go out there and give a coupld of the afore mentioned films a chance. And if you just want to see what a damn good director/cinamotographer/storyteller the man is, look no further than Negotiator. It's not just an excellent Miike flick. It's just a solid, slick, beautiful movie in itself. And I don't even like drama.

I've been meaning to check out the Guinea Pig films for a while. I'm probably gonna get a GreenCine subscription soon, and I think they carry most or all of them.

I watched Battle Royale and Cannibal Ferox last night. The former was good, albeit a little overhyped, and the latter was basically a cheap knock-off of Cannibal Holocaust, but still pretty sweet. I'll admit, the part where the one girl gets hanged up by hooks through her breasts made me laugh.

Gonna go watch Zombi Holocaust now.

Deep Red (1975)



Arguably Dario Argento's best work. It's a police murder mystery picture. Great stuff.

Havent seen cannibal ferox but I own all of the others, Guinea Pigs He never dies is pretty funny, very gory but more of a comedy than a horror.

I dont suppose i'd recommend you see them more than once or twice though, they get boring unless your get off over rape and graphic violence

Paavo has shoved this thread down to the bottom. >:O

I've been watching a lot of movies this past week. Caught up on a lot I've been meaning to see, like Taxi Driver and Hard-Boiled. Speaking of Taxi Driver, I saw this movie called Hardcore, which was written and directed by the writer of Taxi Driver, and it rocks, so hard. George C. Scott is ultra-badass in it. It's basically about a Christian dude whose daughter goes missing, and he finds out she's entered the world of porno, and during his search for her, he becomes slowly and slowly more aggressive and eventually starts beating the shit out of low-lifes to get his answers.

I watched this two-part TV movie called Uno bianca (White Uno). It's a three-and-a-half-hour detective story/crimer thriller directed by Michele Soavi, the director of Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man), Deliria (Stage Fright), and La Chiesa (The Church), the only other movies of his I've seen. It was really good, I dug it a lot. :o Another one of his movies, St. Francis, will be coming in the mail from Netflix either tomorrow or Friday. My free trial's almost up and that makes me sad. :( But once it's done with, I'm signing up for GreenCine.com to get my horror and independent movie fix.

Also watched the spaghetti western Django, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope Takashi Miike's version, Sukiyaki Western: Django, gets a US release soon, either in theaters or DVD.

ABSOLUTE CLASSIC!

...But I think most people have seen that one. This is still one of the best animated movies out of the 80s. The effects are still impressive, and the setting was crafted so carfeully, you feel like you're there.

Anything with William H. Macy is instant win! XD

He's an awesome guy, too. Did you know he's a volunteer fire fighter?

Which brings me to post this:

FARGO



A foolish car salesman stages his wife's kidknapping to force a ransom, but things quickly turn sour and this dark comedy only grows sadder as Jerry Lundigard's situation grows more desperate and pathetic and he ends up raking in much more than he ever bargained for. With some Oscar-worthy performances by William H. Macy, Francis McDormand and Steve Buscemi, the bitter chill of Fargo, North Dakota just got a lot cooler.

This is one of my favorite movies of the 90s. It has a brilliant, simple message at its core that money is nothing, and crime doesn't pay.

Before the success of South Park, Mat Stone and Juan Schwar -- sorry -- Trey Parker -- made this little number, and it's hilarious. (Well really it was more Trey Parker).

Full of some of the catchiest parodical music, if you liked South Park's Bigger Longer Uncut soundtrack, you'll feel right at home here. In fact the movie starts out with a piece very similar to "Quiet Mountain Town", and coins a strangely addictive phrase that gets repeated throughout the film in hilarious ways. Shpadoinkle!

How can you go wrong with songs entitled: "Let's Build a Snowman," "On Top of You," and "Hang the Bastard?"

With inspired oscar-worthy performances -- lol -- incredible sight and verbal gags, and a tale about Gold-Rush-era injustice, this had film-of-the-year written all over it.  ;D

What's fun is hearing many of South Park's character voices in early form and realizing that Trey Parker is a talented bastard who actually directs, produces, acts, and sings (well) the songs he wrote. Oh and Matt wears a stupid hat, of course.

I really couldn't stop lauhing with this one.

"Observe their fates and learn well."
