New Marathon Kicking off Soon!

If you’ve been tuning into the show (and you better be), I was throwing around some ideas on what to have a marathon over. Sports films, Coming-of-Age tales, and Detective movies were among the genres I was muling over. After a few days of thinking about (and with about a week before the first), I’ve decided to Ganster films. Here’s where things get interesting: I’m planning on comparing and contrasting films from all over the world this time. So you’re not just getting Asian films this time, you’re getting stuff from all over the world this time. As for what movies in particular I’ll be checking out, I’ll have that list by the end of this week! Imagine the possibilities here though, guys; we have the chance to see some smuck get bumped off in several languages! ISN’T THIS EXCITING!? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED! If so, calm down, because the marathon hasn’t started yet. By the way, if you guys have some ideas for any gangster flicks I should check out hit me up at Feedback@svmovieblog.net

I gotta show on Monday night! Blogtalkradio version to go up later this week as well! Until next time!

Author’s Word: It’s been awhile, but things are always happening; life is always happening. I’m now at a stretch where I can pump out a large amount of material. Probably no MONTHLY marathons because it’s already the middle of June. Don’t be surprised if I start a new marathon next week or the week after though.

One of the things I enjoyed most about this marathon was the variety in the number of archetypes for the leads. 3-4 movies is a small sample size but I was still able to watch 4 different, unique personalities. Although some of the films were hyper-imaginative, the characters involved all displayed tangible, “human” feelings on screen that we could relate too. Sure I’m not a hot, amazonian; but I have felt the pain of losing a loved one. I’m not a blind, wondering samurai, but I have gone through some things in my past that have made me socially distant (at times, obviously). I’m not an idiot-savant, martial arts expert; but I’d do anything to protect those I love. All of these are shown in one  variation or another in this marathon, and while the flicks I chose to watch aren’t instant classics; none of them really ever fall short of expressing whatever it was they set out to.

Asian

  • Who did we connect with?
  • Most unlikely to overcome the odds?
  • Most likeable character?
  • Who did it their way?
  • Weirdest Origin and/or character quirk?
  • Neo’s favorite movie of the marathon?
