Piranha Corps (ピラニア軍団 ダボシャツの天) (Japan, 1977) [DVD] - 2/5 The third and final mid 70s Takuzo Kawatani vehicle, unrelated to the two Ossan of Kawachi films.

Re: Japanese cult cinema thread

Takuzo Kawatani x 3 ! I've warmed up to this fella over the years. Song of Ossan of Kawachi (河内のオッサンの唄) (Japan) Takuzo Kawatani, Toei's loud mouth punk bit player and comic relief, somehow landed starring a role in this short running series. This first film is a countryside drama/comedy with a yakuz...

Re: The Teruo Ishii thread

On the BBFC there is a listing for a Teruo Ishii film called Orgies of Edo : http://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/orgies-edo-1969 This seems like a rather obscure film, and at first I thought this might have been another name for Horrors of Malformed Men, but it doesn't look to be, and there's already a ...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (USA, 2017) [BD] - 3.5/5 I made a mistake seeing Rogue One in theatre. And I made another mistake not seeing this one. The uneven film has been partly rightfully criticized, though. Firstly, there's a long plot thread that leads absolutely nowhere. Secondly, the new cast is...
