    The violence in the trailer is very stylized, very Kill Billy. Ring any bells?
    Something is twinging deep in my memory banks, but I can't ID this right off. If it is a Hong Kong movie, the stylized violence would lead me to Johnny To perhaps. If Japanese, all bets are off. I'll see if I can't suss it out for you.

    Divemaster, you're gonna believe this - I asked around on reddit about the film, and they pointed me in the right direction.


    Do you know which film it was? Why Don't You Play In Hell? LMAOOOOO

    Ah! That is funny. What threw me off was that the subterfuge is not a music video, and it's not so much that they want to cover it up, but for...other reasons. They're not trying to disguise anything. But, yeah, I'm laughing at myself (elephant in the room and all that)

    Well, well, well. Another Sion Sono film that showed up in my mailbox from Netflix. How about that. For the first hour, I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be gaining from this movie-watching experience. The plot was rather disjointed, popping between a renegade film crew of losers and 2 rival Yakuza gangs that I couldn't quite figure out what their beefs with each other were. And a little girl singing a toothpaste commercial.

    I was mildly entertained. It was obvious the film was not to be taken too seriously. I'd categorize the first hour as "slightly whimsical." Unfortunately, "slightly whimsical" is not really in my genre/tone wheelhouse.

    But then, about an hour in (right when the "pretend boyfriend" gets kidnapped to direct a Yakuza raid home movie)...it hit me. Farce! The movie just went all-in Farce, and I really started liking it. Farce is very difficult to do well, but Why Don't You Play in Hell?'s last half is a very enjoyable farce. I was all smiles and even laughed out loud a few times.

    Very obvious homage to Kill Bill (even the music is almost a carbon copy of the "House of Blue Leaves" fight between Beatrice Kiddo and O-ren Ishii). Obvious homage to the Zatoichi films, with the style of samurai sword fights. Stylistic homages to HK action (slo-mo and double guns). The renegade filmmaking hints at Bowfinger. I'm not sure that Sono intended it, but I even got a Peter Jackson (Dead Alive) vibe, if you remember the carnage with the lawnmower. The Bruce Lee wannabe was very good. And hilarious. And the toothpaste girl! As a little girl, she's as cute as the dickens, and as a grown-up? I'll call her "short-shorts samurai." Miss SSS might be the most flirtatiously sexy/hot/cute Japanese actress I've ever seen. She's...amazing.

    4 stars (out of 5).
    I've been meaning to watch Why Don't You Play in Hell for ages. It was the film at the top of my queue when I got rid of my Netflix DVD subscription.

    I believe that's the movie he's talking about. Why Don't You Play in Hell?

    Good Boys:


    Viewed this a week ago. Just as the movie started ~35 developmentally disabled young adults came in with there chaperones. Initially they were loud and spurting out for no reason and I figured they would ruin the movie viewing experience for me. A strange thing happened, they settled down, and began to enjoy the movie, laughing at many of the funny scenes. Their laughter became a bit infectious and everyone had a great time. They actually improved my viewing experience.



    The movie is quite funny (though very predictable). I give it 4/6 Beers on the RFSRS.

    Saw IT Chapter Two (big review incoming) and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood which was really good. The ending was not only hilarious, but beautiful.

    It Chapter 2:


    A letdown from chapter 1. At 169 minutes the movie plods along. The best scenes are where the group is together, but in a waste of time, each is sent on a private journey to obtain a totem. The only one that works (and it does work exceptionally well) is Bev's visit with an elderly lady who resides in Bev's childhood residence. Several false endings, and constant stroboscopic flashes come close to ruining the ending.



    Sometimes more is not more.


    3.5/6 beers on the RFSRS.

    I pretty much feel the same way you do. I loved the 1st one.. rated it a 9/10 I think... this is a 8/10 for me. Just a little less... I think this movie would have benefited much more as a trilogy. I think it really would have...
