    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.
