Howdy, howdy, howdy. Getting right to it as I promised last issue, that I'd be brief with this installment:
ZATOICHI: THE LIFE AND OPINION OF MASSEUR ICHI
The first of the Zatoichi films. It's the bomb, yo! He's blind, and he's quicker and more accurate than anyone with a sword. He also enjoys the odd drink, and gamble. I was watching a Zatoichi flic with Leo the other night, and told him that I think Zatoichi's my new hero. Maybe.
Pixar rules the day, yet again. If you like the TOY STORY flics, and A BUGS LIFE (and who doesn't?), then rush out and see it now. It's a really funny and sweet film.
I talked about this last issue, but it's starting to get its release, so I'm just reminding you. GO SEE IT!!!!!! I must say however, upon a second viewing it has been knocked out of its spot as my favourite film of the year. Go see it anyways. It's a great film."
THE WICKER MAN
I love, love, love this movie. It's a nutty little flic that's attained a bit of a cult status from what I gather. One reviewer called it ".the CITIZEN KANE of horror films.". That's pretty funny. So's the flic. Go rent it.
Lucio Fulci directed this cool little Italian Horror film about the 7 gates of Hell being opened. Really good atmosphere and well handled gore. If you dig atmospheric horror, check it out for sure.
That's it for now folks. I saw THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE, but wasn't blown away by it. I won't bad mouth the Coens though, so I'll say that it did have a lot of good stuff in it, but didn't work as a whole for me, and leave it at that.
