Watching Road House and Commando on Netflix after after the recent discussion in Random Fashion Thoughts. Both terrible and awesome.

Zatoichi was huge back in late 60's Cuba apparently (dad loved it)

I recently watched 13 Assassins (2010). Was expecting Ichi the Killer type violence but the worst for me was that poor girl who was a play thing and had no arms or legs. I had to also look up how the hell that guy who took a sword through the neck lived. From what I read he is an immortal spirit that represents the end of the samurai?....or something like that

I am about to watch the 1963 version if it has subtitles

I just rewatched Commando as well. Bennett is better than I remember. He "goes psycho" really well at the end. I think my favorite logical flaw is where during Matrix's siege on the dictator's compound he sets up those explosives. When he detonates them later, you can clearly tell that the explosives would have had to been placed inside of the buildings rather than next to them.

Poor man's Seven Samurai, which is to say, still pretty good. Haven't seen the 1963 version. Wonder if it's as heavily derivative as Miike's.

Speaking of Wes Anderson:

^ Pretty great. Similar, from The Onion last week:

Wes Anderson Reteams With Favorite Objects For 'Grand Budapest Hotel'

"Fans are excited for the director to be working with long-time favorite objects like magnifying glasses, bells and old trains again."

Not to mention the department store mannequins next to them and flowers/pots are pretty much bulletproof making them the best places to take cover

Lady Snowblood is where its at

 

Also, watched 'Dolls' the other day, didn't like it as much as the other Kitano movies i've seen, but Yohji's costumes were incredible.

Soon it'll be Halloween.

 

Two of the best haunted house movies share a name. 

 

House (1977) - Wacky Japanese haunted house movie. All that bizarre shit they're known for is found here in spades. I read the director asked his pre-teen daughter what was scary, then took what she said and put it in the film. A+ soundtrack.

 

 

House (1986) - This is the pinnacle of campy 80's horror imho. Troubled writer moves into old family home; thinking 'bout Vietnam. Zombies, ghosts, and hairbrained schemes to combat them. Plus that fat guy from Cheers.

Nakadai is where it's at. My all time favorite actor.

 

Fun fact: they're using real swords in this scene.
