    an actual film, like who else is making anything on this frequency? this is the stuff I live for

    ★★★

    the 1970s were a horrible, horrible time. everything is ugly, nothing is sexy. some amusing cutting together of shots clearly not in the same location, particularly the burlesque show. my favorite thing is the heavy guitar chords and roaring animal sound when she's about to murder with her tits. the "emotional" scene with her "crying" had me losing my mind.

    why did she keep standing motionless in the moonlight with her tits out? why?

  • Flowers of Shanghai

    Flowers of Shanghai

    I watched this several days ago and still I'm not sure what I thought of it. The performances are really really good, it has a very melancholy mood and some powerul moments. But I felt like I didn't understand the main characters well enough and wanted more. I am left without much feeling towards it now.

    one of the dumbest things I've seen

    ★★★★

    maybe the grossest movie I've seen. love those cute little skeleton bats so much.

  • Split Second

    Split Second

    ★★½

    So goofy and lots of intentional humor, most of which is awful, but there's a lot of funny dumb stuff. None of the dark past, moody, or horror stuff works at all. I wish the monster actually looked like a giant rat.

    My first time watching the longer Italian cut

  • The Great Silence

    The Great Silence

    ★★★★

    "The Law" is the amoral sanctioned violence of the state, carried out by psychopathic bounty hunters against the poor and desperate to keep them in their place. The world does not naturally favor the righteous and evil sometimes can't be overcome. This movie is a bummer as you may have guessed, but really great.

  • Police Story 2

    Police Story 2

    ★★★½

    Feels weird to try to continue on from the ending of the original, especially bringing back the mob boss that he beat to death, only to not have him be relevant at all. But even if it can't compete with greatness of the first, there is a lot I like in this movie, mostly the insane massive destruction of the fights.

  • Righting Wrongs

    Righting Wrongs

    ★★★★½

    Brutal, cynical and deadly. Every fight ends in death, people don't just get beat up and walk away. Yuen Biao and Rothrock are on fire, the choreography is insane. It starts out with Biao killing criminals who got away with their crimes in court, and his actions are portrayed as righteous. But as things get more gruesome and bodies stack up, it stops being a simple pro vigilante thing and becomes something more grim and interesting.
