  • From the Highway 1970

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Feb, 2015

    It's a well-made movie, resembling the look of King Hu's Dragon Inn a fair amount. It does pre-date The Chinese Boxer as a hand-to-hand film, but From the Highway is only barely a hand-to-hand film. It does exhibit traits of later films, though, like its basic plot of "He killed your Master! Now you kill him!" fueling the main character's journey, but it's more of a drama than anything else. And if I remember right there are older Shaw Bros…

  • Demon City Shinjuku 1993

    ★★★ Watched 17 Feb, 2015

    "I got better things to do than saving the world's asshole."

    The English dub adds a lot of choice lines like that one to the film. Lots of gratuitous creative cursing. It makes for a good B-Movie + anime experience.

  • Total Recall 1990

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 14 Feb, 2015

    Basically the greatest movie ever made. Move over Citizen Kane.

  • The Beyond 1981

    ★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2014

    I'm starting to think I'll never completely warm up to Italian horror movies. I definitely liked this more than City of the Living Dead, but it was still fairly uninteresting and slow for the most part. The gore, though, holy hell, so much to love there.
