Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Open Grave: 3.5/5 A man wakes up in a pit full of dead bodies. He has no memory of how he got there. He finds a house full of strangers who have all lost their memory like him. The question is, who has killed all those people? How? Often confusing, but an intriguing, very creepy mystery story and th...

Cliffhanger (1993): 4/5

Thrilling and often genuinely tense adventure.

Re: Sonny Chiba Mega Review Thread

Why doesn't the 'Japanese version' of KB Vol.1 seem to available on Blu Ray? Just seems to daft to me :?

The only annoying thing about the DVD is there isnt a seperate subtitle track for the occasional Japanese dialogue. Otherwise very good.
I loved seeing KB in the cinema, just great :D

Justice League: 3.5/5 A superhero team of Batman (a gruff Ben Affleck) Wonder Woman (the gorgeous Gal Gadot) and others battle against an evil force that could destroy the planet. The idea of a hero with social difficulties and awkwardness (The Flash) who is scared of a lot of things but can run ver...

Volver (Spain, 2006): 4/5

Quirky comic drama with a touch of mystery, involving 3 generations of women. I enjoyed it.

Raimunda and her sister Sole lost their parents in a tragic fire years ago... or did they?

Penelope Cruz is so damn beautiful in this film :)

Le Samourai (1967, France): 4/5

A stylish police story, I hadnt seen this since I tried watching it in college. The pace is slow in places and theres not a lot of dialogue, but it's well acted and not boring. There's shades of Woo's The Killer in there.

Back in Action (1994): 3.5/5

Cheesy mid-90's DTV actioner, somehow very entertaining. Heavily pre-cut and butchered by the BBFC back in the day but uncensored on the DVD.

My Way (South Korea, 2011): 4.25/5

Well acted, violent war action-drama is sometimes harrowing, reminded me of Woo's Bullet in the Head in places.

Star Wars - The Last Jedi: 3/5

Overlong, but still exciting in places. Carrie Fisher's tragic death gives her scenes (and interaction with an aging Luke) added poignancy.
Kylo Ren = Han Solo's son, so were Rey and Kylo brother and sister? Thats why she tried to save him?

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

The Executioner (1974): 4/5 The film is sleazy at times (particularly with the way women are treated) but there's some great action in this one, it's still fun. The scene in which Chiba takes out different killers is hilarious (in one he enters a room where a black dude - built like a brick sh*thou...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

The Great Escape (1963): 4/5 First time viewing (surprisingly). The build up is a bit slow at first but as the picture goes on it gets extremely tense, adventurous and exciting, and you're really rooting for Steve McQueen and Co. to escape a tough German POW camp. Great movie. Edit: Should be noted ...

Unknown (2005): 3.5/5

A cross between Memento and Resevoir Dogs, reminded me of some adventure games I've played where characters all wake up in a strange place (warehouse etc) and they don't remember who they are or how they got there. Entertaining/intriguing enough.

At the end it mentions a 'Linn Haynes', I'm sure I remember them and their contributions, weren't they one of our own, or on another forum back in the day?

Really?!

I remember reading a story where Bruce was talking about the scene with the Thai hooker in The Big Boss, and Linda didnt like it, afaik he turned to her and said "Part of the fringe benefits" :D
