Female Prisoner Scorpion Beast Stable (1973) Review: Strike A Pose in Red District

There are four films total based on the manga series written by Tooru Shinohara. I’ve been hooked with this series. So far I watched 3 out of 4. Not all the films are directed by Shunya Ito. Female Prisoner Scorpion: 701’s Grudge Song was directed by Yasuharu Hasebe. No wonder the style is noticeably different.Continue reading “Female Prisoner Scorpion Beast Stable (1973) Review: Strike A Pose in Red District”

Call Me (1988) Review: “I like your flaw”

I think Amazon Prime Video is having a blast with me, or I am just paranoid. They sure like to recommend me strange films that make my eyebrow raise. But I am glad they recommended it to me. I got hooked to this film because I found the real life Albert Wesker from Resident EvilContinue reading “Call Me (1988) Review: “I like your flaw””

Lying Eyes (1996) Review: It’s Always the Dumb Blonde who Gets Screwed

Air-head Amy is a high school cheerleader who seems to suffer from daddy issue. So when she met her 33-year old lawyer boyfriend through a car accident, she thought she found love (sorry Amy but you are just his new booty call). The dude is married to a foxy redhead and he has two childrenContinue reading “Lying Eyes (1996) Review: It’s Always the Dumb Blonde who Gets Screwed”

Female Prisoner Jailhouse 41 (1972) Review: Bad Boys Are Dogs!

I am addicted to laughing. I might have just found one of the funniest film I have ever watched. A big fan of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction here, but this one tops it.  Don’t get mad now. I am not a man-hater but the portrayal of men in this film is a bit accurate; theyContinue reading “Female Prisoner Jailhouse 41 (1972) Review: Bad Boys Are Dogs!”

The Children’s Hour Review: When Lesbian Is Not Sexualized

It seems like Amazon Prime Video knows exactly what sort of films I like–thought provoking ones and anything with Audrey Hepburn is a must see! She is the best and most beautiful actress that have ever walked the planet (subjectively speaking). When it comes to entertainment, I like to gamble with my time. It’s partContinue reading “The Children’s Hour Review: When Lesbian Is Not Sexualized”

Ex-Machina: The Plot Is Not New

Disclaimer: Spoiler Alert My brother introduced me to this film, said it was really good and I should watch it. I did a couple years later, I think it was last year that I sat through and watched it.  My initial reaction when the credits started rolling was: “That was it?” I wasn’t impressed, butContinue reading “Ex-Machina: The Plot Is Not New”

Kwaidan: A Different Type of Horror (Part III)

Please refer to my other posts for complete film analysis : Part I and Part II. The last story in this film is In a Cup of Tea. This is the shortest story and my least favorite. I wonder why they put this story at the last section of the film. The ending of thisContinue reading “Kwaidan: A Different Type of Horror (Part III)”

Kwaidan: A Different Type of Horror (Part II)

Hoichi the Earless is the third story in the film. The longest story out of all the four stories and the most complex to dive in, but artistically on point.  I watched the segment repeatedly, analyzing every scene from the painted red/orange sky to the watermelon. It starts off with a gloomy song about theContinue reading “Kwaidan: A Different Type of Horror (Part II)”

Kwaidan: A Different Type of Horror (Part I)

What does haunting mean exactly? Does haunting consists of ghosts and terror? Haunting is like a whiff of cigarette smoke lingering in the air which won’t subside, or an ancient ruin that once stood proudly in splendor only to be left abandoned and rotten as time progresses. This is the feeling I get from watchingContinue reading “Kwaidan: A Different Type of Horror (Part I)”
