Movies so bad that they’re fun: Review of Tokyo Gore Police
21 August 2017 4:42 PM, PDT
Have you ever seen a movie so bad, that as you were watching it, you paid less attention to what was going on and more to the fact that you’re still allowing your brain to process it? Have you ever seen a movie so bad that the longer you watch it, the more horrified and worried you become at the sheer size of the balls on the director and screenwriter? Like if they would go that far then what would they do next? I’m prepared to admit that in my exhaustive search to give you my opinions on some of the best Asian cinema out there…I have often come across the worst.
Now I too have seen the dark side. And its kung-fu is strong. One in particular that I just have to get off my chest is Tokyo Gore Police. I think a moment of horrified silence would be appropriate here. »

Obayashi’s “House” is a Stylistic Masterpiece
21 August 2017 8:16 AM, PDT
Nobuhiko Obayashi’s classic 1977 film, “House,” which is also known as “Hausu,” is a creative and dreamy psychedelic experience that has to be seen to be believed. What was supposed to be Japanese company, Toho’s answer to Spielberg’s “Jaws” became something entirely different. Sprouting from the imagination of Obayashi’s daughter, the film transformed into a bizarre creation truly of its own with use of a unique blend of practical and special effects, varied editing techniques, and beautiful set pieces. Originally panned by critics when it first got released in Japan for it’s absurdity, it has since gone on to become a cult classic among fans of Asian cinema all around the world, as well as many film critics today.
Enter the world of Obayashi.
The story of “House” begins with a high school student named, Gorgeous, who is excited for summer vacation, which she has plans to spend with her father. »
