Got a whole bunch of stuff in the mail the other day. I was so happy that i took pictures! Look!
(Ignore those DVDs. I was just too lazy to put them away.)
OMG. What could it be!??! And what could be so big that someone had to send it in a pizza box??
“OH, NO YOU DI’INT…!“
Oh yes i did! Woo! Titanic on Laserdisc baby! Only 5 bucks on eBay! Titanic is the best movie in the world. Disagree and you’re GAY.
Oh and i also won this off of eBay. It’s the super ultra rare non bootleg copy Region 0 NTSC version of Battle Royale. Got it for $34. Which is FUCKING RIDICULOUS. But it’s okay. I’m going to resell this fucker on eBay again and price gouge the fuck out of it and get at least 50 bucks off of it. I saw another copy of the same DVD going for 50 bucks the other day. IT IS POSSIBLE. This thing is so rare that if you look for ‘battle royale tartan’ on eBay, you won’t even find it listed. Woo!
And if getting both TITANIC and Battle Royale on the same day wasn’t enough, i also got FREE MONEY in the mail! Woo! 50 bucks baby! Off of that T-Shirt Hell link that i’m pimping on the main page. It’s been a while since i got a check from them. I think i’m going to start pimping out their stuff more. Free money just for putting up HTML links is sweet.
And in other news, i sold off a bunch of my old PS2 games at GameStop and got a fat lump of in store credit that i put toward buying METAL GEAR SOLID: THE TWIN SNAKES on GameCube. Man, that game is badass. And the cutscenes are even badasser. It’s no surprise really since Ryuhei Kitamura directed them (the cutscenes). Who the hell is Ryuhei Kitamura you ask? It’s the guy who made Versus, the badassest action horror comedy yakuza gangster zombie movie ever. I think the director describes the movie as “Freefall Ultra-Violence Non-Stop Entertainment Action!”. Silly Ryuhei. Trix are for kids!
Anyhow, i mentioned in this post about how i thought Versus was better than Kill Bill Vol. 1. It was probably unfair to compare the two since they’re both so different. A better comparison can be made by putting Kill Bill Vol. 1 against Azumi. A very (VERY) similar movie to Kill Bill that i think actually manages to out-Kill Bill Kill Bill (meaning: it’s better than Kill Bill. Volume 1 at least).
And funnily enough, who directs Azumi? Why, it’s Ryuhei Kitamura! But seriously folks, this guy knows how to make badass movies.
So, Kill Bill v.1 had Uma Thurman going up against 88 yakuza henchmen right? Well Azumi has Azumi going up against 200 goons. Badass! Also, if you loved the Samurai Shodown games in the arcades on those old ass Neo Geo systems, you’ll love the characters in this flick. They all like the badass characters out of those games. Especially the bad guys.
Seriously, for those of you out there who haven’t seen Versus or Azumi, if you’ve seen the MGS: TT cutscenes in action and you like what you see, i suggest hunting down Versus first, then Azumi. I made Bubba spend 27 bucks to get Versus on DVD and he loved it. He’s stupid though because he watched it DUBBED instead of subbed. I had to force him to watch it subbed. So he missed out on some of the more funnier and insanely quotable subbed lines the first time, lines like:
“I’m a feminist!”
Hahahaha. Haha. Ha…
Okay. It’s a whole lot funnier in context.
