I was flicking through a shed-ton (technical term) of old movie posters on my computer when I realised that I could do a post on some of my favourites. Now, this is not my top 10 most favourite, it’s just ten that are pretty awesome that I’m throwing out at you. Note also that most are a decade or two old. In other words: these babies were probably hand painted by some very talented people. Not Photoshopped to fuck and back like today’s boring posters.
I made a post about crazy Japanese game shows before here on MS, but most of the video links seem to be deceased. So, I thought I’d trawl the Intarwebz for more sleazy filth Japanese game shows for you.
This is a tough one to review as I’m not sure if my copy was more funny because of the Engrish subtitles. My subs were taken from German subs that were converted to English via Google Translate. Never a good thing normally, but for subtitles, it’s hilarious.
Normally I never watch the credits to a movie, but this one is pretty awesome. It has a fit Japanese chick gyrating to some funky music. When I say ‘gyrating’ it’s more like she has the runs and needs a dump. Still, she bends over a lot and that’s no bad thing for the start of a movie.
I’m not sure how/why I noticed this film, but I’m glad I did.
The premise of the film is simple: all Irish people are raging alcoholics. And as they said for Human Centipede: based on medical fact.
I can best describe the story as an Irish War of the Worlds. There’s a meteor splash-down just off the coast of a small Irish island. Several fishermen go missing and later we see one (exceptionally drunk) fisherman trapping a strange creature and (in true Irish fashion) taking it home and keeping it in his bath.
Meanwhile, a (rather hot!) female replacement for the police chief arrives on the island and is partnered with the local alcoholic copper.
While drunk (again!) the fisherman recounts the story of his monster-in-the-bath to the local copper (also drunk again). It is of course dismissed as drunken ramblings but turns out to be true when said fisherman returns home to find a large hole in his house and his bath outside.
Sorry for the lack of posts. Myself and Alex have been watching trash, but some of it has been so trashy we don’t even want to talk about it. Some (such as Timecrimes and Triangle) are awesome, but too difficult to review without spoiling the whole thing.
So, as a measure of apology, here’s a deliciously warped animated short for you:
A movie poster should be an image which evokes thoughts and emotions of what that movie is/was about. It’s usually your first introduction as this is what you’d see before even setting eyes on the movie.
I’ve just touched 40, I’m single, and a miserable old bastard. So, as you can imagine, on Christmas Day I’m pro-bah humbug. What did make me eventually crack a smile (on everyone’s favourite Pagan holiday) was to finally watch Dredd (2012).
Let me fill you in, I’ve been reading Judge Dredd in the pages of 2000AD since I was a nipper. Hearing that there was going to be a Judge Dredd movie made me giddy with delight. Then red with rage when Stallone took the helmet off. Never mind that the look of Dredd was missing. Thankfully this new Dredd movie ticks all the right boxes and I will from hereon in deny the existence of that ‘other’ movie.
With season three just around the corner (end of September) I think it’s time to review Superjail.
Superjail is the animated bastard son of Robert Crumb and Happy Tree Friends. Each episode lays bare the crazy antics of said super jail which is built inside a volcano. The Warden obviously runs the show and is probably best described as a circus ringmaster more than anything else. Then there’s Jared (a ‘recovering alcoholic’) and Alice the butch/macho guard.
