    Wrong thread, but I had a Scott brothers weekend this week with Blade Runner the first night and then Days of Thunder the next (playing Gran Turismo and Project Cars 2 got me needing some racing action!)

    Eastern Condors, a Dirty Dozen style film set during the Vietnam war. Amazing action throughout.

    Wow, just found out that Toshiro Mifune was in a western with Charles Bronson!

    Red Sun (1971)
    Don't know how I missed it.

    And The Villianess /Ak-Nyeo looks like flashy popcorn fun.

    The Villainess is an instant classic in filmmaking.

    I'll know within 10 minutes that you watched it because you will be here raving about it.

    Gonna pick up The Villainess Bluray this week, UHD would be cool.

    Found an interesting film to watch, Save the Green Planet! (2003)

    'A man believes that the CEO of a corporation is actually an alien invader and sets out on a quest to save the world, it could be real, or it could all be in his head'

    The Villainess is on netflix if that's helpful.

    Save The Green Planet is strange. I can't remember much about it though.

    Well there are some scenes in Save the Green Planet that one would probably not want to remember ha ha.

    While at JB I saw Blade of The Immortal too, releases today the 28th woo! Gonna use my JB credit to pick up that with The Villainess and have one hell of a night.

    I recall posting the trailer for Blade of the Immortal but I completely forgot about watching it, I am still about a decade behind in regard to Takashi Miike's filmography after the last viewing being Ichi The Killer. He is so prolific man, his backlog grows too fast heh.

    Ha ha yeah, Imagine him waking up in the middle of the night and trying to get down all of his crazy ideas, I wonder if it is like John West, the ones he rejects that make him the best. I could envision his cut ideas would be even more out there ha.

    Seems that Hayao Miyazaki may not be retired after all, a short film and an another feature film in the works.

    Porco Rosso will forever be my favourite, I think Princess Mononoke is his best work though.

    I didn't really enjoy The Wind Rises, hope his final film will be a fitting send off.

    The Outlaws looks good, gonna watch it this week.




    And Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky is one of the most outlandish and hilariously gruesome fight films I have seen so far.
    I see that it is based on the Manga of the same name, it really is crazy fun, so much over the top violence ha ha.

    Guy attempts to strangle another with his intestines, crowd replies that he has a lot of guts...this is the shit Hollywood needs.

    Couple of films I might watch this week.

    Out of the Dark (1995)

    Stephen Chow of Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer plays on a parody of Leon as he is drawn in to the lives (and deaths?) of the inhabitants of a haunted high rise building.


    Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds (2017)

    A fire-fighter navigates through several trials of the afterlife.

    I picked up the recent remastered release of Jackie Chan's Police Story, really is an incredible upgrade to image quality.The definition available illustrates just how incredible this guys early films are, in terms of stunt-work and pure creativity.

    The first police raid alone is worth the price of the disc, in fact there are several memorable scenes throughout, one involving his girlfriend and a scooter that never fails to cause me to spit out my drink in laughter.

    I hope that more of his amazing earlier work gets the 4K treatment so a new audience who perhaps have only seen his American watered down work will come to appreciate him. Also their atrocious dubbing obliterates some of these films, they have to be seen in their original language imo. Although there are certain throwaway films were the hilarious dubbing adds the entertainment.

    If I were to list films of his that are must see it'll be these.


    Drunken Master (1978)

    A traditional Kung-fu film, not about insane stunts, and here the fight scenes are not outrageously crazy and over the top, rather they are played out like a dance movement, you can see the balance and poetry in each fight as the flow sways back and forth like water.

    Has some real funny slapstick.


    Project A (1983)

    This is a fantastic film, a pirate adventure in the old school sense, a tribute in many ways to Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

    This contains some absolutely brilliant stunt work including an unbelievable clock-tower fall where Chan lands on his head! Hurts so bad they made him do it twice!


    Armour of God 2 (1991)

    An Indiana Jones style adventure gem, this is what Uncharted should have taken some cues from.

    It has some great humour involving his female companions and a towel, some awesome fight scenes, including a fucking beautiful scene in an industrial wind turbine, crazy stuff.


    Wheels on Meals (1984)

    This movie is just pure comedy entertainment, many excellent scenes however the culminating battle against Benny 'The Jet' Urquidez demands to be viewed multiple times.
