And I'm back. Sorry I'm super behind on my movies. The good news is I now have more time to do my reviews. Starting with:
Tokyo Gore Police:
Oh Japan, how I love you. This movie is a gorehound's dream. We're talking dismemberment, disembowelment, and another dis word I can't think of. It makes no sense, but it's one of those movies that you don't watch for the story. You watch it to get grossed out and see people turned into mince meat. And boy does it succeed. If you want to gallons of blood within the first 10 minutes, this one's perfect for you.
I Am an S&M Writer:
I believe this is my first non-horror review. And...it's a dumb movie. It's about some "famous" Japanese S&M write, and how his life basically falls apart because he writes smut. I think they we're going for comedy, but it just didn't work. It ended up being a 90 minute pro-anal ad. All they talked about was anal and women's peeholes (I wish I was lying). It's long, weird and kind of creepy. But, if you're into that sort of thing, I won't judge.
Let me start by first saying this has NOTHING to do with the one we all know. There were no ugly stepsisters or mother, no prince or anything else you can think of. It's about this plastic surgeon who's keeping a secret from her daughter about her past. It sounds very interesting, but it quickly became convoluted. I'm guessing it was trying to warn against vanity. I'm not sure. It didn't really strike a chord. If you want to see bitchy girls get their faced hacked up, then this is worth a one time watch.
I love French movies. And this is no exception. It's so whimsical and funny. It's all in subtitles, but it's so worth it. I haven't seen a movie this well done in a very long time. It's about a young woman named Amelie who definitely lets her imagination get the best of her. If you have 2 hours and want to be taken on a ride, please check this one out.
