  • High Plains Drifter
  • The Legend Of Hell House
  • Lone Wolf and Cub 5: Baby Cart in the Land of Demons
  • **More chop-socky, sword-thrusty, expostulate-ish gore-fest about Lone Wolf And Cub. The plot concerns 5 guys, one kick-ass lady, an evil plot that Ogami must stop to expose and evil plot that Ogami must stop in order for darkness not to consume the land. Yes is the answer to the question: Does this movie have an incredibly complicated plot? Much easier ways could’ve been taken to fixing the problems out-layed but that would negate this film. Which in case you’re wondering is the problem with the film. The fights are still mighty entertaining and everyone involved is trying hard but what’s the point. You get the feeling the film-makers are asking the same thing sometimes, but such is the universe of samurai flick-dom."In The Land Of Dreams" is a worthy addition even if it can't recall the glory days when things sorta made sense.

Great! another fan of The Wicker Man. I have the dvd, which has two versions of the movie. As usual, the long version is better.

I've never seen the short (crappy) version, when I ordered I went straight for the goods. (Leonard Maltin warns in one of his books about the shorter version.) So I have no way to compare. What is wrong with the shorter version?

I love the sly way the camera work snubs off certain parts of the background and remains just out of focus in others to play with your paranoia. And the ending is incredible, to say the least.

The hero is such a smug dolt, in way over his head. <---very cool.

Please review.



Have dvd player, will review...eventually.

Check. I'm waiting patiently but I still reserve the right to give a few well placed prods for said review. :?)
