Sword of Doom

9/10

A shame this one didn't get to have the full planned trilogy.

I'd like to see Misumi's version, but I'm not sure if it has ever been subtitled.

Have you seen Harakiri and Samurai Rebellion? I'm Forever in Mischief Maker's debt for recommending them as a iconoclastic anti-samurai trilogy. Harakiri even stars Tatsuya Nakadai again! If you don't respect his chops already, you will after seeing it back to back with Sword of Doom.

Even totally out of this context, Harakiri is eminently worthy as a canonical bad motherfucker against the system flick. Super strong recommend.

Both of those are on my list. However I literally just bought some Criterions (Lone Wolf and Cub set, High & Low, Gate of Hell and Tokyo Drifter) so it will be a bit before I get to buying them.

Nakadai was excellent in Sword of Doom. I actually felt compelled to look into his other works after seeing it.

"Harakiri" is actually a stealth program to turn weeaboos into socialists.

This movie starts with a cool fight before it nearly grinds to a halt and never picks up pace again. Movie is overly long while introducing things that never get fully explained. The hologram love shit annoyed me too. Good soundtrack, awesome visuals and mood, yet moves so slowly that it kills the vibe at times.

It turned me into a weeaboo! :shock: :lol:

(just kidding, I did that to myself years earlier when I binged up Kurosawa! and then I became an italiboo when I started watching all the spaghetti he'd influenced!)

He's grand in Kagemusha as well, playing iron-fisted yet ailing Takeda Shingen and his roguish body double. A superb Lear too, in Ran. I came to Kurosawa for Mifune, stayed for Shimura, but it's Nakadai I ended up most endeared to. Cool cat!

Kagemusha and Lady Snowblood are in my "watching" stacks right now. Hopefully I can knock out Kagemusha tonight but it's so long, it might be a two nighter.

I mentioned it before, but will drop it in your steely laps again:
Kiru (KILL!), a film by Okamoto with Nakadai in a parodic, subversive bite to the supposedly splendor of being a member of the ruling class system.
Action, cinematic framing, humor - it's all there.

Ta, that's one I just ran out of stamina before getting to back then. Back on the list! (I wish I'd diversified a bit, it was mostly Kurosawa with a few other directors, most of which starred Kurosawa regulars)

Thought the music was terrible, verdict is out on visuals too. Overall a big letdown.

BIL-bo, if you want something really interesting, try "Today We Kill... Tomorrow We Die" Pretty mediocre Spaghetti western, but it stars Nakadai and was written by Argento. It's okay, but Nakadai gives a solid performance, so you get the best of both worlds!

How can the verdict be out on any aspect of a film released 8 months ago?

Okay I lied. eBay has a 15% off coupon so I ended up snagging the Rebel Samurai 4 pack (which has Samurai Rebellion in it, along with Kill!, Sword of the Beast and Samurai Spy) and the Zatoichi BD Box set (all 25 movies :shock: ).

Probably means he's not sure if he liked them or not. They're not wrong though, it's been pretty heavily overrated, despite some good points.

Demon Seed, 1977

I was expecting this to be (probably) really cheesy but I actually took it seriously while watching versus total camp. I was definitely invested and wanted to see what happened next throughout.

Loved the psychedelic imagery it had here and there. Surprisingly good effects as well, all things considered. The AI actually followed through with it's plan versus the movie just threatening to. Not to shabby for a random flick from 77. It's not fine art but it was up my alley and I was in the mood (and smoked a bowl).

I know, I'm just picking -- it is a bit silly though. Can't say I've ever seen something and been unsure of something as obvious as visuals. Maybe I'm just blessed w/ 20/20 vision.

2049 was my favorite thing that came out last year. Note I only saw like 3 things, but still. I quite enjoyed it... seems like I like the soundtrack more than most, even though some of it seems to be a bit too atmospheric. Nothing wrong w/ that I just have tons of it already.

Kagemusha

9/10

Masterwork from Kurosawa. Nakadai is stellar in this sweeping Samurai epic.

attention all Ahnold fans :

There's finally a good video-quality Predator release available(is about damn time!).

The previous blu ray release looked pretty ridiculous, with a huge amount of digital noise-reduction slattered about, making people look nothing short of wax figures...

New transfer avoids that amateur mistake, and looks so much better as a result.

I'm not sure. Forum ports here suggest that the standard blu-ray is still the Ultimate Hunter Edition transfer.

Well you already know my full critique after my second viewing - and I haven’t changed my position on that at all yet. But one of the best new movies of last year? Well that’s probably the same for me. It’s not like there was much that was particularly good in competition, so it sort of gets there by default.

Visuals were super in parts and seriously undernourished in others - and for me it pales compared to the visual tapestry of the original. But while I was a tad disappointed, the visuals were the least of my problems with it. Decent first half anyway.

For real? That can't be... why didn't they jut downsample the new 4K transfer, unto the 1080p BD?

NOOOOoooo... this is so dumb :x damn you Fox! you fucking dumbass


Looks like I'll be getting the 4k disc, and playing it downscaled on my 1080p tv...

Star Wars - project 4K77 - (1080p version - no DNR)

This, is how I remember it.

Those of us who saw the original and have had to suffer Lucas' "special editions", "high def" smearing and digital "colour correction", are finally avenged.

Team Negative 1, bring us an "original 1977 35mm Technicolor release print, scanned at full 4K, cleaned at 4K, and rendered at 4K."

Its . . .
Image . . . beautiful.

You know that it can only get better! They plan better colored releases, even with a shot by shot recoloring thread on Original Trilogy. I can't wait to see how the DNR release looks.

Long delineated scenes of a dystopian future, the score was a perfect pairing. it's one of the best examples of a film propelled by it's visuals and sound since *shrug* The Mission (Morricone) or Chariots of Fire (Vangelis). When the remaining facets are scrutinized in isolation, there's nothing particularly remarkable.

In a strictly literal sense, yes, it is a film propelled by it's visuals and sound.
That being said, it has all the depth and soul, of a fucking MTV video.

The visuals - plastic and disposable, the score - utterly forgettable, the soundscape - amateur hyper-compressed for instant aural attention.
It suffers from the Gosling, the cretinous writing behind Leto's character, Ford - Grave Robbery, and on and on and on . . .
The only gravitas and soul, shown in the entire pointless farce, was by Dave Bautista.

One still from the original, one phrase from Vangelis' score, one moment of Ford in his prime and this ridiculous impostor is lost, like tears . . . well, you know the rest.

I think you gentlemen, are being entirely too generous in its critique. The film, is a desiccated zombie, a creative vacuum.

Denis Villeneuve, needs to put on some cloths, or get arrested for gross indecency.
