Pointz Taken Seriously (Thursday The 28th)

Alright, heading into the weekend, I’ve put together my list of reviews you can expect to see in the coming week or two. Seeing as how I’m going to be as broke as a joke, I’ll definietly have some time to write and record. Among the announcements I previously posted here, I’ve also added The Twilight Samurai to my Cinema Classics marathon. Next episode will still be The Man From Nowhere/Kagemusha though, so be ready for that. I’ve got my notes written I just need to get my other computer setup to record.

In other news, I recently watched and reviewed the biopic, Champion. The feature tries to reimagine the life and career of Duk Koo Kim, and in the process bores me to tears. The one thing this film had going for it, was that I wasn’t familar with the story beforehand; which meant the ending came as a surprise. It just felt like a typical “cinderella-man” story of a poor, strong guy with a big heart who punches his way to the top. Nothing bad about the movie, but it’s not among the premier films I’ve got to see so far this year. In case you missed it, here’s a link to the review released yesterday: Click here to read for Champion Review

Until next time, stick and stay!

Hidden Fortress dropped from Cinema Classics marathon

Looks like I’m replacing Akira Kurosawa’s Hidden Fortresses. Truthfully, if it’s not available for you guys to watch without paying money to ship for it, I’m willing to skip over it. I am not sure what the replacement will be yet though. Although there is a good chance I may push the marathon episode back. Don’t worry though because I’ve been watching a lot of non-marathon stuff too. Plenty of filler!

UP NEXT: Retribution/Hidden Fortress

This next episode has been a long time coming. I’ve been putting off both Retribution and Hidden Fortress out of sheer fear. Retribution because I’m afraid I’ll be too scared to watch it; and Hidden Fortress because I’m afraid it won’t be as good as Kurosawa’s other films. We’ll see how it goes, that’s for sure. Tune in for that plus the Box Office Breakdown (and predictions) along with the Otakast Radio News Update.
