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!

UP NEXT: The Man From Nowhere/Kagemusha

The Cinema Classics marathon continues this week with Kagemusha. We also try our darnest to profile a man who seemingly came from nowhere in The Man From Nowhere. You like how I did that, don’t you? Oh yeah, I can tease shows like it’s no ones business. Anyway, stayed tuned for the new episode later this week! Also, the Box Office Breakdown, and the OtaKast Radio News Update.
