Via MovieBabble-Film Review – The Dead Don’t Die (2019)

On April 1st, 2019 the first trailer for The Dead Don’t Die arrived with an outstanding cast highlighting a zombie comedy from Jim Jarmusch, the director of Coffee and Cigarettes, and Broken Flowers. I could have sworn it was an April Fool’s joke. No way was this cast all together in a zombie comedy, that […]

Via B&S About Movies -Poor White Trash II aka Scum of the Earth (1974)

Originally known as Death is a Family Affair and perhaps better known as Poor White Trash Part II, this S.F. Brownrigg movie belongs squarely within the genre of hicksploitation or redneck films. After Don’t Look In the Basement, where else can he go? Downward, it seems, as this movie is awash in, well, scum while still […]

First, a couple questions.
Do you live in England?
Do you love classics of the Asian Extreme school?
Congratulations! Come August 2, you’ll have a chance to go see OLDBOY the way it was meant to be seen; on the big screen with a theater of fellow fans.

Here’s the trailer for the limited release –

Next week, lucky movie fans in the UK have the chance to experience a classic of Asian Extreme cinema as Park Chan-wok’s 2003 revenge classic OLDBOY comes to UK theaters August 2 in a new 4K restoration, followed by digital download availability on August 26.To make US fans even more jealous, Arrow’s releasing this baby on Region B Bluray August 23.

Why should you see OLDBOY on the silver screen, snap up the download and/or bluray if you have the chance? Seeing a mainstream classic like GONE WITH THE WIND, THE WIZARD OF OZ, or CASABLANCA is a chance to recapture a bit of what movie audiences of each movie’s era felt; that excitement and wonder of a first run viewing.
Seeing a genre classic back on the big screen, be it  a 70’s landmark like THE EXORCIST, or a more recent film like OLDBOY, gives you the chance to experience all the visceral thrills with an audience of fellow fans. Horror movies make for the best communal experience, and OLDBOY, (the middle movie in Park’s “Vengeance Trilogy“), is nothing if not horror-adjacent with its themes of loss, revenge, punishment, and tragedy.

I’ll have to content myself with my precious 2006 three disc DVD set from the late, lamented Tartan Video, and envy my fellow Asian Extreme fans across the pond.

Via Under the influence! Japanese Folktales: The Tale of Rai-Taro, Son of Thunder

Some people say the gods know little of humans and care little. One of the gods heard this and was stung by the criticism. He decided he would send his son to live with people to complete his education to learn what he could about humans. He would then return and teach the gods the knowledge he had acquired.
