Featured Blu-ray Review: Ichi The Killer: Definitive Remastered Edition

March 18th, 2018

Ichi The Killer

I’ve previously reviewed a couple of Takashi Miike films. However, both of them were period piece martial arts movies and not his more brutal and sadistic films. Ichi The Killer is peak Takashi Miike. Is it as good as his period pieces? Or does it truly earn its infamous reputation? More...

Home Market Releases for February 13th, 2018

Blade of the Immortal

It’s not a good week in terms of box office numbers, as the biggest box office hit to come out this week is Wonder. It is also one of the best new releases of the week and a contender for Pick of the Week. Other contenders for Pick of the Week include Blade of the Immortal, Night of the Living Dead, The Silence of the Lambs, and The Sinner: Season One. In the end, it was a coin toss between Blade of the Immortal and Night of the Living Dead and the former won. More...

Featured Blu-ray and DVD Review: Blade of the Immortal

February 12th, 2018

Blade of the Immortal

Blade of the Immortal is directed by Takashi Miike, who is only 57 years old, but has directed 100 movies in his career so far. That’s not an exaggeration; this is literally his 100th film. He has slowed down and is now only making two or three movies a year, rather than the pace of five or so movies a year during his early career. Has this resulted in better films? Does Blade of the Immortal have more mainstream appeal? Or is it only for more hardcore Miike fans? More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Will Princess Cyd be Visited by Lady Luck?

November 3rd, 2017

Princess Cyd

A few films on this week’s list were earning some pre-release buzz. Sadly, LBJ and Last Flag Flying missed expectations with critics, so they could struggle at the box office. On the other hand, Lady Bird is earning 100% positive reviews, while Princess Cyd’s reviews are not that far behind, so perhaps they will succeed where the others fail. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Steve Jobs and Killer Frogs

October 9th, 2015

Yakuza Apocalypse

This is not a particularly deep week for limited releases. Steve Jobs is the only film that has a significant chance of earning some measure of mainstream success. In fact, its reviews and buzz suggest it could be a player during Awards Season. On the other hand, The Forbidden Room, Victoria, and Yakuza Apocalypse are more interesting in my mind. More...
