    The Telephone Book

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I had such a great time with this. It's experimental, raunchy and above all, absurdly funny. I loved how the naive lead character just went after the thing she wanted despite it being on the kinkier side. It's pretty sex possitive/forward thinking that way. Quite a feat for a movie from the early 70's.

    There is nothing like watching a nearly 3,5 hour long King Hu fantasy flick to herald in the new month.

    Legend of the Mountain really is the epitome of "Every Frame a Painting." Even the movie's most mundane sequences are elevated to unparalleled heights by the God-tier level cinematography. It looks absolutely stunning.

    I love how subdued the supernatural elements were handled here. Everything is done with smoke bombs and reverse photography. Very creative but nothing too flashy.

    It's a shame that the lengthy runtime and glacial pacing will probably keep a lot of people from experiencing this exceptional movie.

    Meet the Feebles

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    A bonkers puppet-musical directed by none other than Mr The Lord of the Rings himself, Peter Jackson. It took vision and creativity to make Meet The Feebles. That and a dirty mind. Man, what a raunchy little movie! Tasteless stuff, but always in a fun sort of way. I loved all the musical numbers, but the sodomy song especially. Great puppetry too.

    Fun times watching this with Michelle.

  • Ilsa, the Tigress of Siberia

    Ilsa, the Tigress of Siberia

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    A super entertaining entry in the Ilsa series, of which I had seen the Don Edmonds original and the unofficial Jess Franco Greta sequel. Dyanne Thorne (and her impressive mammaries) returns and she gets into all kinds of nasty antics. Mostly threesomes/ impalements.

    There is so much crammed in here that it almost feels like multiple movies condensed into one. The movie starts off with Ilsa being the director of a Siberian Gulag before the story jumps 20+ years ahead…

    A fun little SOV sci-fi/ horror gem from the Polonia bros. Very cheap but also extremely charming. It probably has the best severed head sequence that a $ 2.73 budget can buy. I got a chuckle every time the computer generated UFO appeared on screen; so dated, yet so glorious.

    The acting isn't great, and the movie did feel a tad long, even at 68 minutes.

    This Man Is Dangerous

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    The first half is filled with silly buddy cop antics, courtesy of Chin Siu-Ho and Cheung Chin-Pang, but This Man is Dangerous eventually settles into gritty crime flick territory. The movie is narratively messy and the humour annoyingly cheesy, but the final 30 minutes are exciting enough to make watching it worth your while. The titular dangerous man is played by director Johnny Wang and he is a highlight. What a nasty individual.
