    Vinegar Summerdrome 2022: 22/32

    This was released in the same year as Batman & Robin, and yet Mr. Freeze and his quips got all the attention, it's not fair!

    Vinegar Summerdrome 2022: 21/32

    Really bareboned and a bit stilted, but it does a good job of boldly communicating the tragedy and urgency of the situation (it's a shame that this presumably didn't have much of an audience back then), and the two actors are solid together.

    Bad Ben: Benign

    ★★★½

    Can't believe I'm saying this, but it really does pay off to watch every Bad Ben film (including the Christmas special!) before diving into this insane and hilarious love letter to all the Bennites. I'm sure Nigel will keep making these, but this movie is pretty much the perfect ending to the whole saga.

    Hooptober 7.0: 2/33

    Anime legends Katsuhiro Otomo, Satoshi Kon and Keiko Nobumoto collaborated on this solid little live-action movie that serves as an endearing commentary on xenophobia and getting over prejudices.

    The dynamic relationship between the yakuza protagonist and the foreign supporting cast is the best thing about this, but despite the title there is actually very little horror here, and it did leave me wanting more in that sense.

    Also, as a huge X Japan fan I very much appreciated the inclusion of their song Celebration here.
