Ooooooooooooooooooooooooh

BTW Bob, have you seen Miike's Yatterman movie?

And you think there's no evidence God is real. Only a just and righteous God would have allowed this movie to exist. HOT DAMN!

Robert said...

Bob, I saw Red Riding Hood and Sucker Punch.
They were both garbage.

Please don't let me down again? Pretty please?

@Reverend: If god spends his time making sure that great movies are made instead of feeding starving children, then he's an inconsiderate asshole who needs to get his priorities in order.

Forgive me if I suspect something weird will happen in this film. It's Miike after all.

Looks like they're trying to make a modern Akira Kurosawa movie... which is like 7 kinds of awesome in my book.

tim, take a fucking joke

Kat said...

I am pleased. Although I gotta agree with Mildra - something strange has gotta happen.

@Robert I'm sure Bob will make a bigger effort to agree with you about everything from now on.

@WilhelmvonHaig
Thumbs up! :D

Ontopic: Trailer makes me think of Azumi, asian period films with 'regular' people, instead of the powerfull ones from Crouching Tiger etc. (not that there's anything wrong with that either).
Always kind of makes me wonder how accurate these films are. Great to see a world see different from our own (western european).

Now about that, why aren't there any kickass Knight movies, without poetic, pretentious emo lead characters? Say, a Medieaval Iron Man? That would just be awesome.

I just watched seven samurai a few months ago and this reminds me of it. I do get the impression this is a Japanese samurai version of the Expendables (haven't seen that one.) but that's how it comes off to me. At least this one is R and looks like a promise of blood and noble sacrifice. My favorite kind of action movie.
