The Cat Returns

This sould be a quick one.... The Cat Returns , don't bother. I watched this last month and can't remember what happens. I couldn't really remember what happend the day after I watched it (and I was sober). Sure, it's nicely animated, but then it is Ghibli so I'd expect that, but the story was lacking a grip. The one thing I will say is I'd be happy to stick it the player if my little cousins were round, knowing there's be a gentle story with no scenes of tentical rape.

*** ' ' ' ' ' ' ' 3/10

And there's more

Right, got a few more to add to the list and a whole lotta reviewing to write up....

Been quite busy (well that's my excuse :P) but now things are slowly setling down, only got the minor distraction of house purchase and move getting in the way now.

New for the list: Versus, Dumplings, Three extremes, There extremes 2, Premonition, Audition


Right, Finally got my hands on Versus (There was no way I was shelling out £16, so I waited), I'd heard good things about it. I couldn't remember what good things, but I had heard them. It's a Japanese zombie filck. I eagerly fired up the DVD player last night and settled down. Within seconds I thought "Damn, this is rubbish", and it got worse, and worse, and then it hit me: this is a B-Movie. A real honest-to-goodness B-movie, as all zombie flicks should be. It had it all, bad acting, bad effects, bad stunts (Wirestunts where they've made no attempt what so ever to hide the wires) added to cheap martial arts gumf. Think Romero meets Samo Law meets Thunderbirds.


Double Ace.

Where's the slow mo' button?

Zombies, Guns, Zombies with guns, Swords, Zombies with swords, Zombies with sword AND guns, shots lifted from Frank Miller comics and then repeated over and over, a man in too tight trousers, versus has it all.

******* ' ' ' 7/10 (sooo close to 8/10)
