In the last week (and in addition to the Elvis pics I mentioned above):
Twilight Zone: The Movie (Landis, Spielberg, Dante, Miller, 1983) - Haven’t seen this in decades, I got talking about it to my son and thought he might enjoy it so, on it went. And yes, he bloody loved it
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril (Saito, 1972) - Pitting Lone Wolf and Cub against a female assassin who likes to go topless when she kills. Of course!
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (Misumi, 1973) - More knifey-swingy mayhem wherein Lone Wolf has to execute a sequence of assassins in order to reveal a bigger message leading to his real intended target
Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell (Kuroda, 1974) - Last of the LW&C pics and in fine spag western tradition (they’re a lot like spags really), this is the “snowy” one, with everyone and everything - including the baby cart - on skis
Over Saturday and Sunday, I elected to treat myself to a bit of a sharkathon. My eight favourite fishy-bitey pics, watched in order from least favourite to most:
Deep Blue Sea (Harlin, 1999)
Bait (Rendall, 2012)
The Shallows (Collet-Sera, 2016)
Jaws 2 (Szwarc, 1978)
47 Meters Down (Roberts, 2017)
The Reef (Traucki, 2010)
Open Water (Kentis, 2003)
Jaws (Spielberg, 1975)
Then, today: Princess Mononoke (Miyazaki, 1997) - Wonderful bit of animated fantasy storytelling. I’d never seen it before, thought it was excellent.
