What? You thought I’d only have 1 review for The Film Dump’s 2nd birthday? Nah dawg! I don’t roll like dat… or something. Second birthday means I do two reviews, which also means next year I’ll have to decide if I wanna do three. Maybe I’ll finally do the Godfather Trilogy. Anyway, I digress, point is that tonight I went to see Iron Man 3 and it was really quite an enjoyable action spectacular. Click the link below to read my actual review… there is much to be discussed.

Had this one on my to review list for a little while. Well, a month. This week’s gonna have a few reviews coming your way to make up for how slack I’ve been the last few weeks. Starting with The Ides Of March I intend to have 4 reviews posted this week with one of my most anticipated releases of the year, that being Dredd 3D, to be posted last. So, on with the review for The Ides Of March. Click the link!!!
Hey look! I’m reviewing another very violent foreign language film! I feel like I do one of these at least once a month. Not really representing world cinema as well as I probably should. Still, if you wanna see someone get their Achilles tendon cut in a nice protracted close up then there’s only one place to go really. South Korea!!! No that one shot in Kill Bill doesn’t count. Way too fast and doesn’t do the sheer pain of such an attack true justice. Oh, here’s my review for Jee-Woon Kim’s I Saw The Devil….
Isn’t violence fun? I mean, watching it. Getting beat up ain’t that much fun. Unless you’re Kakihara the lead character in Ichi The Killer. He loves a bit of pain and he’s considerate because he enjoys giving and receiving. He’s the guy in the photo up there blowing smoke out of some gills he made himself. It’s the latest look for piecing and body modification enthusiats I hear. Anyway, here’s my review of Ichi The Killer.
So why is the title spelled like that? Is it because Tarantino writes everything phonetically? Or maybe it’s because he didn’t feel like paying the license for the 1978 film The Inglorious Bastards? I’d imagine it’s the latter. If he had to pay for a license fee he wouldn’t have been able to have such an unnecessarily large cast. Also he probably had to pay someone off to let him have that personally gratifying foot fetish scene. On with the review!
SO far I’ve reviewed 5 martial arts films and not one of them has been Chinese in origin. Ninja Terminator is actually Filipino interestingly enough. So here’s my first proper 100% bonafide Chinese martial arts movie review, and it’s a doozy. Ip Man is the tale of a period of time in the life of one of the most influential martial arts masters of modern times, a man that trained Bruce Lee which eventually led to the creation of Jeet Kune Do. So, click the link for the review to see what I thought.
