Any film with an egg eating competition is always likely to win my heart.
Unusually for an American film, I think I would have been aided at points by some subtitles. Subtitle it on boss! Having to get my ear in a little gave me a sense of getting amongst 'em that either wrongly or rightly, made the film more enjoyable. Either that or I had the volume too low? I dunno.
Paul Newman's acting, I thought, was good.
Some Korean Quakers make expensive paper out of porridge oats.
It's a bit like Sleepy Hollow. It's based in an isolated Korean community, there's a snazzy detective and a ghost suspected of killing folk. The killing is more imaginative though and it's done in a realistic old days costume style.
Craig said. "If I were a snazzy costume Korean detective and I caught somebody importing western ideas or even practising Catholicism then woe betide. I would get them real high, blanch them up side down in boiling soy sauce, feed them a human faeces wrapped in porridge-paper, spill their innards out of their scythed belly, throttle them with their own intestines, set them on fire, douse the cinders in salt to cure them and save them for a snack when it's skint week or winter."
The first Robocop is good, but probably the Robocop nostalgia makes me feel that it's GREAT! This one has the Robocop nostalgia, combined with a cheesy-dark humour that makes it quite entertaining and giggle inducing.
The story is packed full of nonsense and it looks wrong. Robocop is too shiny, too camp, too Kryten. The effects and camera work don't look as good as they did in the original, although I do like the neon graffiti ghetto-scape.
Expensive but cheap looking Sci-Fi-Comedy.
