    So, last night, despite having like 400+ movies queued up in my Amazon watch list, I stumbled upon this new release: Karate Kill.
    The poster image alone sold it for me.
    Watched it.
    It's super low-budget, neo-grindhouse, owes a HUGE debt to Sonny Chiba's Streetfighter, as well as QT's Kill Bill (and others).
    It stars Japanese porn actresses.
    There are lots of titties.
    Lots of blood.
    Some OG practical effects.
    Gore galore (but in waves, not continuous).
    It's campy.
    The villain looks like the bastard offspring of Charles Manson and Jack Elam.
    There's a fight to the death in a moving semi-truck trailer container.

    Joe Bob Briggs would approve.

    Me, I'd give it a 3.25/5.

    Get hopped up and indulge in some gonzo karate chintz.

    I have been binge watching The Guardian.

    Some of it is a bit contrived but I am enjoying it anyway

    I loved that show. Was bummed when they canceled it. So dark. Never lets you off the hook with any feel-good bs.

    weird. i just searched, found it, and booted it up about 5-minutes ago, so it should still be on there.

    Whoa.
    I thought I had seen all of Rowdy Roddy Piper's cinematic excursions, but obviously not. Have no idea how I missed this one back in the '90s, but it is a classic B-grade, drive-in-styled gonzo affair that borrows liberally from Escape From New York, The Warriors, Class of 1999, and After Hours (just to name a few of the obvious influences).
    But you know what it's got that those others don't? RODDY-f$%kin'-PIPER!!!
    Familiar story, but decent pacing, and tons of over-the-top over-acting (the guy who plays the gang leader is amazing).
    And, what I truly miss the most about this era of low-budget action films, is that they ACTUALLY blow shit up, like real explosions, real cars catching on fire, real buildings crumbling ablaze; no CGI!
    If you're feeling nostalgic for bare bones, kinda stupid (but stupid fresh), gonzo B-movie action fare, you could do a lot worse'n this.
    Crack a brew or two and enjoy. I did.





    PS
    the gang is called The Ragnarockers and their leader is named Odin and one of his henchmen is named Thor and carries a sledgehammer (considering that Thor: Ragnarok is opening this week, it would make a fun and goofy primer...)

    If you're in the market for some 1980s, gooey, gross, bugged-out horror (a la Re-Animator), I highly recommend SOCIETY.

    Very much agreed. For a movie that grossed $70k in the U.S., it really delivered.

    Says a lot about today's cinema.

    KISS KISS BANG BANG
    4/5

    Written/Directed by Shane Black, best known as the screenwriter behind Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout (he also wrote/directed Iron Man 3 and the insanely awesome The Nice Guys).

    I remember seeing this film perhaps a year after it was released (i.e. on DVD, not in the theater during it's initial run) and thinking it was meh. But last summer I watched The Nice Guys and was sucked in by the pithy dialogue and fast pacing (watched it twice in a row I thought it was so good). Then I remembered how I had really dug all of the movies Black had written over the years, so when Kiss Kiss Bang Bang showed up on Amazon, I decided to give it another go. Glad I did. In many ways The Nice Guys is basically Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2; similar story, similar witty dialogue, similar fast pacing.

    On a serious note, there's a coupla scenes in KKBB that address the rampant sexual harrassment aspects of Hollywood. I won't go into detail (don't wish to unleash any spoilers), but they were rather interesting scenes given the current climate in the movie capital today; remember, this film came out in 2005, so for Black to be addressing this problem back then means that it was a problem.

    At any rate, the cast is top-notch: Kilmer. Downey, Jr. Monaghan. Plus a great cast of supporting characters.

    Totally worth a watch. Definitely worth a re-watch.

    Yep. That Sarah Snook is a hell of an actress.

    It's got all the mindfuck that Christopher Nolan's movies supposedly deliver, but without the CGI distractions covering up the lack of coherence in the mindfuck.

    Aussies find ways to deliver on a budget for sure. The Horseman. Wolf Creek. The Interview. And the classic, Wake in Fright.

    Vincent n'a pas d'écailles (aka Vincent Who Has No Scales).
    4/5

    Cool, low-key comedic love story about a wandering loner, but the film has what I would loosely call a "supernatural" twist (some critics have billed it "France's first superhero movie", for whatever that's worth).
    Languid pacing, lush cinematography, and minimalistic on the dialogue front; one could almost refer to it as a modern day, full-color, neo-silent film.
    It is also teeming with thematic elements found in Frankenstein and King Kong, but without the monsters.
    In French with subtitles.
    I found it quaint and quirky and incredibly engaging.

    Tin Star: great cast, a little slow to develop and thin on background, a little heavy on the dark in the dark comedic thriller balance.
    took me 3 weeks to watch the first 4 episodes but now things are rolling.

    I started on this one and walked away.

    Should I give it another chance?

    Depends - do you enjoy seeing tim roth beat the crap out of a coke snorting biker??? I'm also expecting great things from the "Swede", who of course is norski. And there's always Christina Hendricks - the exception that proves the rule that thick is over-rated.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: not for everyone but very quirky in a fascinating way; crackling jewish dialogue, threatens to turn into a musical at least once every episode, and delightful characters plus great cast. Interesting peek into life during the late 50s/early 60s, focusing on "modern" jewish culture and the early days of stand-up.

    I see it at the top of the selections. I might give it a try when in the right mood.
