NOT WORTH YOUR TIME
By all rights, Shinobi No Mono aka Band of Assassins should have been a blast. It has everything that you could want in a ninja picture: exotic weapons and poisons, acrobatics and sleight of hand, and intrigue by the bucket.
Alas, the filmmakers are […]
In order to discuss why seed boxes will most likely become much more popular in the coming months, it’s necessary to fill in a little background.
In the world of file sharing, especially when it comes to private trackers like Cinemageddon, users are required to maintain a ratio hovering around 1:1. In other words, you must […]

TRASH CINEMA RECOMMENDED MOVIE
As surely everyone but the dullest bulb knows by now, the 1% of the richest people in the world have bought the world’s governments and use them to further solidify their power and wealth.
Part of the strategy of the wealthy is to influence education so […]
I don’t why, but I got to thinking about the action scenes that have really floored me. If I missed any, add them in the comment section. Here they are in no particular order:
The Wild Bunch - The Railroad Detective’s Ambush
This whole sequence is just masterful. The way director Sam Peckinpah uses slow motion, the […]
Lately, I’ve seen an lot of really terrible films.
These days, with all the fan sites out there, it is possible to see many, many obscure genre releases from bygone years from Italian cinema, Hong Kong cinema, and Japanese cinema.

For example, when viewing American films, people native to Asian cultures often notice that people often get up from bed and go to work without taking a shower, which would almost never happen in their culture. They think that all Americans […]
Hello, faithful readers.

Well, this is the latest doodad from Google. Here’s the way it works. +1 is shorthand […]
Just read an article called File-Sharing and Copyright by Felix Oberholzer-Gee and Koleman Strumpf. Interesting.
While the article seems biased in favor of file sharing, it stops short of claiming that file sharing doesn’t have an impact on content creation.
As our survey indicates, the empirical evidence on sales displacement is mixed.
While some studies find evidence […]
I just saw an indisputably good movie, The Great Silence AKA Il Grande Silenzio, but for all I know, it could well have been truly great. Why the uncertainty? Because the only version I could get hold of was dubbed.
The Great Silence is a spaghetti western, so obviously it was originally in Italian.
There are many […]

I’ve got to say, I haven’t been too impressed by the participation of this blog’s readers.
But, for those readers who happen to really love modern Korean flicks and Golden Age of Hong Kong movies, I might be in the position to do you a solid, but only for those of you who are worthy.
Now, how […]
