Movies 2005(+2) #75-78

Ichi the Killer (Unrated Edition) Of the top ten or so craziest films I’ve ever seen Miike now has about five of them. This thing is so screwed up it’s not even funny. It’s actually one of his better efforts, but it’s so outrageous, that’s almost the only impression I can come away from it with…

Batman Begins (Two-Disc Special Edition) Better than I thought it would be. I don’t really like the whole Katie Holmes sub-plot (and not just because of her Tom Cruise connection), but other than that it was pretty good.

Kung Fu Hustle (Widescreen Edition): Not funny. I’m an enormous Stephen Chow fan. I normally think he’s very, very funny. Shaolin Soccer is one of my favorite comedies ever and God of Cookery isn’t far behind. This film, while enjoyable as an absurd Martial Arts epic, simply doesn’t have the laughs that his other films do… As an over-the-top MA extravaganza, it’s highly recommended. I just didn’t piss myself from laughter the way I was expecting to.

La Chevre This, on the other hand, was very funny. A film full of wonderful slapstick moments.
