Watched Battles without honour and humanity. It's the first part out of five about the rise of the japanese mob following Japan's defeat in WW2. It's a very loud and brutal film. Everyone are betraying each other guns blazing, and no one can shoot straight. No one in the movie dies from a single bullet, they all get to roll around screaming in agony before finally dying. The only somewhat honourable gangster in the movie is the main character Hirono. I almost felt sorry for him for all the things he has to put up with trying to remain true to the yakuza code. Easy to recommend. Makes a lot of american crime films look like straight up commercials for the mob.

Anaria. Swedish sci fi about a giant space ship drifting towards doom. It does a lot different, as can be seen in the trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MIlE9R00ik. If BRINK would get adapted I wouldn't mind something akin to this movie.

Damn, that does look good! Did you catch it on DVD, or Netflix or something?

On blu ray https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aniara-Blu-ray-Emelie-Jonsson/dp/B07W7GWDJN/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

I'd also recommend the poem Aniara :)   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aniara

Intrigued to see Higgins on the crayons, any chance ä
In a 160-page book that includes (presumably, going by the creator line-up) the likes of Twilight's Last Gleaming and Democracy Now, I'd be very surprised if you get anything other than America Book I in there.

I like the idea of that. Hope it collects Letter from a democrat and Revolution as well :)

Nice. Looking forward to this one :)

Back to the future. First time watching it. Had a blast. A wonder I never saw it as young.

The Mule Clint Eastwood makes bank by going back and forth between the US and Mexico with "naughty salt". Not much else happens and then all of the sudden things stop and the credits roll. It's mostly Clint being do goody, and at times a bit Forrest Gump-esque (bedding two women in a threesome, at two different points among other things). Best bits are Clint sitting in his truck and singing along to country songs. All and all, quite okay to watch: It's a movie with Clint.

A star is born Heard alot of good about it, and I got really surprised. It was really really good. Can't say I'm a big fan of the music in the film, but that only speaks to how good it is. Gaga and Cooper shines in it. Their chemistry together is fantastic.

I've just finished reading Sons of El Topo: Cain & Abel on comixology. While not the experience that is El Topo I enjoyed it. I found it a bit slow towards the end and it ends a bit abrupt, but it's easy to recommend to someone who likes the film. For someone who hasn't seen it, I think I'd still recommend giving it a chance.

It does a good job establishing the tie to the story in the movie and then moves on from there. Tonally it reminded me of Son of the gun, with bits of Moonface thrown in. In true Jodo fashion the story is filled with dreamlike weirdness, rape, bloody murder and other cruel acts. But also some very moving moments. It all comes alive thanks to the fantastic art of Ladrönn.

Loving the original movie and followed the developments of the sequel for years, I'm happy to finally having gotten hold of the story. I still hope to get to see the film someday :)

With Better Call Saul Season 5 out in February (teaser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMNlyBmReKY) I went through all of Breaking Bad, the movie El Camino and the four seasons of Better Call Saul. Can't wait. Hope it's as heartbreaking as season 4  :'(

I just finished Haruki Murakami's Killing commendatore and I can't say I liked it that much... The story seemed interesting at first with bells rining in the night and a miniature man from a painting making a visit. Reminding me of Wind up bird chronicle and 1q84. But the story goes nowhere and quickly becomes very thin on mystery. It also lacks the magic and flow of Wind up and 1q84. It'd probably worked much better as a short story or shorter novel (like After dark) rather than a 700+ pages long book.

The 80s setting seems really interesting

"the ’80s was a time when the world was at its most extreme before we understood any cost."

Not to mention hopes of some influences from George Perez Wonder Woman book. Btw. The golden armour. That's probably from Kingdom come? Any good?
