That Kurosawa box set is great.

It totally is, have a double bill of Seven Samurai and Throne of Blood lined up tonight with a dram of whisky in the lines, absolute bliss.

Anyway, so since when did HMV start doing monthly reduced Criterion offers??!! Absolute bargains!

So last Saturday I took a trip dawn south to see a personal favorite of mine in what could be a once in a life time screening considering the legal madness the franchise is trapped in in the West.

So yeah, Macross Plus is the most under appreciated piece of science fiction to come out of the last 50 years. It's a superb meta narrative on the Macross franchise as a whole up to the point, a startlingly frank discussion on the dangers of yet inevitability of transhumanism, and just look and sounds gorgeous. This was an OVA/Movie that seriously benefited from being seen on the big screen, and as a last hurrah until Harmony Gold vanishes up it's own arse and relinquishes the life long rights, it damn near brought a tear to my eye.

I didn't feel a description was needed! A superb boxset from Kurosawa and some deliriously lovely French New Wave stuff no one will give a toss about!  :lol:

Also picked up a few other things but just couldn't be arsed today, looooong 48 hours. :lol:

Thanks lads, feeling better after a weekend away and time with friends, onwards as ever.

I’ve been contemplating trying CBD oil as a way of helping deal with anxiety, I know vaping looks dumb as shit but short of not knowing who the fuck would sell the....lets say medicinal herb alternative i’ve heard a lot of positive stuff out of using it.

We'll pass over the fact that Hawkie outed himself as a fetus.

I remember seeing Clones in cinemas first time around aged 7, even then I thought it tiresome and overly tedious.

In retrospect Menace has generated a certain appeal over time, and most certainly isn't the poorest of the prequels, if for no other reason than the aforementioned Clones.

Not sure I agree with Tordels on General Grievous exclusion from Sith though, he was in many ways one of the highlights of that immensely flawed final part.

In Beawulfs defence, it was the mid (early?) 2000's and as far as I can recall, the first mo-cap movie produced on this scale. The slightly rough, awkward animation isn't any more distracting to me than the now pretty poor animation on the first half a dozen Pixar films.

Something that doesn’t bother me as much as it used too but, more a mild ‘Oh’ feeling.

Getting a book soggy and a corner of the cover starts to peel.

I've not seen the Twilight Zone reboot/continuation/meta narrative wank fest and i'm extremely reluctant to do so, i'm such a big fan of the original series, and I even have considerable time for the 90's sequel run though it rarely holds a candle, that i'm almost certain from what i'be heard it'll just make me angry.

Been feeling a little....void, recently. The whole job situation, lack of money, concerns about canceling plans, general feeling of isolation.

Nowhere near the worst i've felt in recent years but just frustrating.
