Oh happy day!

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 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.

  2. Netflix has Versus, but not the other movies. And they don’t carry pizza either.

  4. Titanic sucks my balls because apparently i’m gay now. Also the interactive DVD, MGS, also sucks. Played it, beat it, regreted it ever since. And for your sake I hope you agree because I’ll be making your video games next year bish.

  7. i watched BR, it is so bloody boring (did not finish watching it), at least i think Kill Bill is so bloody interesting. expecially with UMA. she’s still hot 4 a hot chick. YUM!!!

  8. I can’t believe it you actually like to spend 3 hours of your time watching Leonardo Di Caprio doing his thing…fucking crazy, how can one like this really bad movie? Oh, yes and I’m gay, going to tell it to my girl-friend…Justin, please, rethink it, TITANIC is S-H-I-T!

    #8 | Comment by skatertom — March 15, 2004 @ 9:52 am

  9. I didn’t like Titantic, for one simple reason, you knew a massive plot line going in….the ship was going to sink thereby further endangering the protaginists. How stupid. King of the fucking world couldn’t even kick that bitch off a piece of flotsum to save himself. King of the World, right.

    One of the big reasons I didn’t think Passion of the Christ worked as a movie (aside from an utter lack of character development and religious/cultural context) was that I knew what was going to happen at the end.

  10. Battle Royale is thrice more violent than Kill Bill! Is like Kill Bill without grayed out scenes!


    #10 | Comment by Jay — March 15, 2004 @ 11:25 am

  11. titanic was a horrible movie, with only a few redeeming qualities.
    1- Nudity…we all know what i’m talking about
    2- the guy who falls off the boat as it sinks and hits the propeller.
    3- Leonardo DeCrappio dying
    Except for that, it was a god awful movie, which i regret having ever been forced to see.

  15. ah. I just for some reason checked out your desktop pictures from years back. Championship manager is like the best game ever. Ever. And damnit, I really want Battle Royale. You’ve got a pretty awesome site by the way.

  17. Titanic isn’t THAT bad, after all, you did get to see Kate Winslet’s boobs. I bet Justin is wanking to them right now.

    #17 | Comment by tsl141 — March 15, 2004 @ 3:48 pm

  18. yes, i concur with the majority on fubar:
    kate winslet’s titties are the saving grace of this movie.

  19. Metal Gear Solid is one of the greatest games ever made. It’s seriously top 5. Then they remake the game with graphics and gameplay from the second one. Its the kickass story line with the badass gameplay and graphics. I am playing twin snakes at the moment and already beat it twice. Now I am replaying for unlockable stuff. That adds a lot of replay value. The only thing wrong with twin snakes, is the gamecube buttons on the controller aren’t presure sensative. Ps2 buttons are and make some things easier with lowering your weapon with out fireing etc. Twin snakes is a very kickass game and If you doubt me then you can go back to your kiddie little mario sunshine games.

  20. I agree, the original MGS for PSX was a great game. It was awkward at times but the story gets you involved and the method of stealth over fighting made it so much more fun to me. I never actually played MGS2 because I played it once really far in and it made me so nervous I didn’t like it. My roommate also has gamecube and picked up twin snakes the other day it’s great going through it again. I may just take your advice and check out those flicks by the same guy.

    P.S. Championship Manager is indeed the best game ever. Ever.

  21. Titanic is a whale of a movie!

    #21 | Comment by captainbomb — March 15, 2004 @ 5:55 pm

  22. I won’t touch the Titanic one other than to say, how can the American public EVER be wrong. I mean, it was the most popular movie for almost a year!

    Secondly, Azuma does kickass, but there’s no way you can compare it to Kill Bill Vol 1. None, whatsoever. Just because they both kick a bunch of ass doesn’t mean they relate … you take away too much credit from Tarantino, at least his films have a plot. Just wait till the second one, you will see young grasshopper.

    #22 | Comment by chuckg — March 15, 2004 @ 6:49 pm

  23. Titanic isn’t worth owning. And….laserdisc? what the hell. I had no idea that format was still around, and for the life of me I cant figure out why you’d buy one. Didnt DVD kill the format?

    #23 | Comment by RobertBruce — March 15, 2004 @ 6:52 pm

  24. That Battle Royale isn’t that rare, you should have gone for this one, with the map, if you can find it. Azumi is a pain to find, and expensive. But this version is worth it.

  27. Titanic = crap, but I’m not gay.
    Battle Royale = a movie I REALLY want to see.
    Money for linking = teh sweet-sauce
    Metal Gear Solid The Twin Snakes = sweet-sauce mixed with even sweeter-sauce.

  28. I dont get it…the only funny part was the no metal poster cause that is so true, goddam mtv and their stupid ass rap, if there gunna play rap they should at least play good rap, it does exist in the form of Atmosphere btw, but they dont, cause there gay, like titanic, which is only ok cause all those gay people on board die when it sinks, haha, losers

  29. anus

    EW. no. have you read the subtitles on that thing? the korean version is the worst, subtitle wise.


    the one i got is by far the best (and the rarest since it’s OOP)


    a winnar is me!

    btw, azumi is almost EXACTLY like kill bill.

    chick’s family gets killed. chick pretty much wants revenge. heads out to kill a specific number of people. kick ass 200+ man end fight. pretty much almost kill bill v.1 again. (but it came out first)

    you can pick up the bootleg like i did on ebay for around 19 bucks i think. look around. it’s pretty much the same as the original copy. the subs are pretty good. a little ‘stiff’ but good nonetheless. worth it.

    #29 | Comment by Justin — March 15, 2004 @ 8:22 pm

  30. btw, after i sell my battle royale and get more money for it than it’s worth (AHAHAHHAA) i’m going to buy one of these european special editions.


    compatibility wont be an issue since my DVD player at home is multiregion plus it has an NTSC/PAL switch thing.

    this really is a good site btw


    sidenote: fear factor is fucking gross tonight. eating live snails!!! YUCK.

  34. fuck yeah, i just got the twin snakes in the mail today. can you GET anymore badass? best part: no pussy raiden

    #34 | Comment by Dan — March 15, 2004 @ 9:20 pm

  35. Justin… I’m not gay like you or anything, but I thought I should let you the other fags know that Titanic is really cheap this week at Best Buy (on DVD). It’s in a whole big "2 for $15" section, so it’s like $8… I might go pick it up just to see that one fucker hit the propeller again. DONG~!!

    #35 | Comment by Dex — March 15, 2004 @ 9:31 pm

  36. PS – Raiden sucks monkey balls.

    #36 | Comment by Dex — March 15, 2004 @ 9:32 pm

  37. Look, I don’t really wanna be a bigot or anything, and I usually don’t talk trash about your (INCREADIBLY BAD) taste in movies.

    But seriously, if you like Titanic, you’re a huge faggot Justin. Try growing a penis and watching a Tarantino movie (or a porno) becuase both have more artistic merit. Titanic is nothing more than a 3-hour buildup of female blubbering bullshit.

    #37 | Comment by jackass — March 15, 2004 @ 9:48 pm

  38. Ah, Battle Royale has Vic Romano from Most Extreme Elimination Challenge!!!!

    #38 | Comment by someone — March 15, 2004 @ 10:17 pm

  39. more importantly, battle royale has gogo yubari from kill bill! she looks really different though. i barely even recognized her. her nose doesnt seem as big in battle royale.

    #39 | Comment by Justin — March 15, 2004 @ 10:27 pm

  40. jackass:

    dude, titanic being "female blubbering bullshit" is JUST NOT RIGHT. Dont bring women into this! its a terrible movie – even pretty boy being in it doesn’t make it ok. Even the tits don’t make it okay.

    It sucks.

    Nothing can change that.

    And you’re right; Tarantino rocks.

    #40 | Comment by sarah — March 16, 2004 @ 4:26 am

  41. Justin, your obsession with titanic is scary. I think you’re gay and are in love with Leo Di Caprio.

    Admit it.

    #41 | Comment by Sarah — March 16, 2004 @ 4:27 am

  42. shut up. titantic is a chick flick just like good fellas is a guys movie

    #42 | Comment by bah — March 16, 2004 @ 6:37 am

  43. How much loot do you get from tshirt hell. Is it a per click thing?

    I don’t mind clicking the link a couple times a day, and if everyone did it you could be raking it in.

    Just be careful that they don’t catch on. I’m sure they track IP’s per day though.

    #43 | Comment by Eric — March 16, 2004 @ 12:35 pm

  44. Yeah, Titanic is pure shit. Why some people wasted their money seeing it over 30 times in the theaters, I’ll never know. You wanna know WHY it was $5 on eBay?
    However, you have made up for this extremely bad purchase by winning Battle Royale. AND Twin Snakes. But barely. Just barely.

    #44 | Comment by The Dude — March 16, 2004 @ 1:31 pm

  45. I am a huge fan of Kill Bill, and I checked out Battle Royale a couple of months ago. I was impressed most with the fact that it was a Japanese movie that felt like an american movie.All in all a very good flick although I can see why it is banned (or whatever) in the U.S. Do these two other movies have this same american feel about them, or are they just the sucky plot Jackie Chan type flicks that I normally see from over there?

  46. If anyone cares, here’s a very good review of Battle Royale (Tartan version VS. Starmax version)

  47. C’mon u cant be serious,
    Titanic Blows!!!! (Even tough i’ve liked every other movie Leonardo has been in & same w/Kate)
