70 T5 Story of the Detective (1983) - Mar 19, 2017
82 T9 Logan (2017) - Mar 18, 2017
"Pros : - Great acting and characterisation for the mutants - Emotional scenes work. - Rarely seen themes in superhero movies (decrepitude, old age, failure, fatherhood, ...) - Bloody, violent action scenes - Good cinematography - No full CGI scenes (filmed on location and such) // Cons : - Grittiness and swearing sometimes feel forced - Heavy-handed expository dialogue (beginning and end) - Pedestrian villains - Not *THAT* violent - Adamantium bullet nonsense (again!) - Hidden camera footage POV"

80 T8 The Sting of Death (1990) - Mar 11, 2017
75 T7 Nihon boryoku-dan: Kumicho (1969) - Mar 11, 2017
"Same plot structure, plot points and character types as the earlier (and better) "Gamblers' Ceremony of Disbanding", but presented in a way prefiguring the "Battles Without Honor and Humanity" film series (external narrator, dutch angles, stills, ultra-violent yakuza gang wars, etc.). Some scenes are much less refined than Fukasaku's later output though (they even feel kind of B-grade). Good perfomance from Tomisaburo Wakayama as a brutal, drug-addicted, drinking yakuza boss."
