Shawshank ... so many effimate prisoners ... *drool*

Oh yeah, it was an awesome redemption movie too.

Y'know Sam, you could have saved a few minutes of your time by just saying that Ichi the Killer was really freaking stupid.

Sometimes you just hae to go on a rant about how stupid something is. Just saying it is <expletive> stupid doesn't get the point across properly. I have at least one 5 minute rant about a stupid book. Anything shorter isn't satisfying.

you just want to point out to people how stupid you think it is. and just saying it's stupid isn't satisfying enough, because ya gotta back up your arguement about how stupid the stupidity is, since one person's stupid isn't another person's stupid, although anyone who thinks that something I think is stupid isn't stupid is someone I'm going to think is stupid, 'cos, well, they must be stupid. Stupid.

Since I don't want a white-noise postwhoring thread in General Discussion, I'm going to hijack the thread with some of my wandering cross-forum thoughts, and instead talk about why Ichi the Killer is a totally terrible movie.

The schlocky pacing and purposefully genre-typed cinematography provide an illusion of artsiness which fools the unwary. In reality, the movie is aimless and thematically exploitational (e.g., gorefanz). Why, if the sadistic torture, domestic abuse, voyeurism and violent rape aren't enough to wet your willie, and you just aren't entertained enough by how the movie is trying not to make any sense and fill time with pseudo-artsy shots of urban Japan, just wait ten minutes at any given point in the film and the movie will delight you with some really atrociously corny CGI! Or perhaps a character doing something with absolutely no context whatsoever!

WOW! How can you lose, with Ichi the Killer! Anyone who disagrees with me will emphatically be responded to with other movies that I'd rather watch twice than sit through Ichi again.


Maxim did an interview with Eli Roth and asked him his top 5 gore films. His list:

1. Hostel

2. Ichi the Killer

3. Pieces (tagline - Pieces... It's exactly what you think it is)

4. Dawn of The Dead

5. Cannibal Holocaust (some facts: A)This movie has gained the title of the most notorious movie of all-time, holding the world record for the movie banned in the most countries (in almost 60 countries) B)The iconic image for the film shows a "cannibal" girl impaled on a stick. Upon being summoned to court in order to assert that no actors were harmed during production, Deodato explained that the girl simply sat on a bicycle seat attached to the pole's base, while holding a small pointed balsa wood piece in her mouth. The fake blood was then added. Deodato commented that the girl had an unusually calm temperament to be able to remain so still during the filming.... I think you get the idea)

Less chance of succesfully derailing the thread.
